I love this place don't get me wrong. We had great appetizers of the pepperoni rolls and fried pickles. Our waitress was very nice. When we ordered our pizza with sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, Roma tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, mozzarella and fresh mozzarella all over with red peppers and artichoke hearts on half. When it came it looked great and we... More

Looking for a place to eat close to our hotel, we picked Old Chicago.We both had chicken sandwiches, which were very good. Nice atmosphere and excellent service. One thing that was a bit lacking was the tap beer selection. They promote their selection, and it was OK but not great. Positive experience.

My husband and I happened in here on a weekend for late night beer and appetizers. The beer selection is great with many varieties to choose from including local selections. We had already eaten, but we're eyeballing the pizza at another table. It looked and smelled great. We will be back to dine in. Great service and fun bar scene.

Go early on the weekends as dinner may develop a wait. The food is good. The pizza is good but our favorite is build your own mac and cheese.

My wife and I stopped in about 2:30 in the afternoon and they were not too busy so the speed of service may have been skewed, but it was fast! The food was good and the portions were just right for two hungry shoppers! My wife ordered a personal veggie and I ordered the Chicago fire calzone and if it... More

We have been to Old Chicago any times but the service and the food seem to be getting worse. We ordered a to go order on this occasion. We parked in the food to go parking space. After 15 mins someone came out but it was not our correct order. We waited another 25 mins, my husband went in to... More

Old Chicago is a restaurant that is overwhelmingly alright. It's okay, average, and pedestrian. It's not going to blow your mind and you should temper your expectations accordingly. My first visit, three years ago, was probably the best experience I've had at this location. Food and service were pretty decent. On the visit before last, I ordered a burger cooked... More

We had a Boulder Cocoa Porter, Left Hand Milk Stout, and bone in chicken wings early Friday evening. The beers were good as well as the wings. Amanda was attentive, efficient, but not too personable.

We arrived today at 11:25, we waited a few minutes to be greeted. Once greeted by the manager, he told us how tired he was due to being out till 4:30 last night. We settled on the buffet. BIG MISTAKE. The food was also tired and had been from yesterday. Cold and stiff. We told our server who apologized. The... More
