We always get the apple walnut salad, which is awesome. But today my wife and I decided to get something different for a change. My wife got Mac and cheese that had so much bread crumbs in it that it soaked up all the sauce- 12.99 way to much for macaroni! I had the burned up BBQ bacon cheeseburger 10.29,... More

Loved their vegetarian pizza and probably the best in town. I think it is called 7 veg. The vegetables seemed fresh. Most other places including locally owned you don't have such quantity and quality of ingredients. It was a bit greasy but not too bad. We were pleasantly surprised given this is a chain!! Of course it is a bit... More

The first Friday of each month our work teams gather at a local establishment to celebrate the past months' successes and toasts to an upcoming even better one. 'OC' is our favorite 'go to' place - good happy hour prices, good food selection, great beer choices, good service. I don't recall we've ever had a bad experience there in the... More

I generally prefer local restaurants, but for a chain, this place is not bad. A good selection of grub, including good (not great) pizza, an assortment of sandwiches and burgers, decent salads, and a large selection of beer. The setting is casual and inviting. Portions are large and prices fair, and service is on the plus side as well.

They really have a great beer selection from tap. I am glad to see that craft beers are taking over the US selection. I really enjoyed some good IPA's at Old Chicago, like Rebel IPA and Odell's Run Off IPA. I forgot which burger I had exactly, but the meat was good and the burger was very juicy and tasty.... More

Food was OK but the service during a party was very sub-par. We had to go to the bar to get any service at all. Food was cold when brought to us. I gave half of my food away to others as they were waiting for so long. Very disappointed with the whole thing. Next time I will just say... More

Our server was the best part of the entire experience, shout out to Ryan. The food was average at best. Once again with all the endless choices in Omaha you're going to have to step up your game. Yes loads of beer choices,but I came for the food and was disappointed

Went between lunch and diner hours. Waitress was a positive. Otherwise, food was slow coming (salad, personal pizza) and not very flavorful...

I ordered an 8" "Meat me" pizza that comes with sliced Italian sausage, pepperoni, pork sausage, cheese, tasty sauce and green olives as a garnish. The amount of toppings was impressive and the weight of my small pizza was twice what most "personal size" pizzas weigh. The pizza with tax was ~$13. The crust was delicious, with a great taste...

This place is showing its age and lack of trying. Our server was unaware of the advertised special that was mailed and had no interest in finding out. Had the chicken panini that was hot, but tasteless. Fries were room temperature. Expected more.
