Good food, great atmosphere and great staff!

Well to start this review, let me tell you that I work at the Best Buy which is right down the street. There are plenty of good places to eat in Hamburg Pavilion, but this is always a favorite between my coworker and I once we get off work and had a long day. Ever seen that old show Cheer's... read more

We ordered carry out tonight while spending a night in town on our way home from spring break. Had a thick and a thin and ate more than I should have. Very good pizza. Not really Chicago style, but really good pizza that was reasonably priced and quick.

Old Chicago is very good. I do enjoy the Chicago 7 pizza the most. The salad dressing is not that great. The location is good at Hamburg. Great beers on tap. Not much on their mixed drinks on my last trip I had a margarita it was nothing to write home about. Stick with the bear for sure. Old Chicago... More

Drove here to get out of the rain and traffic. Short wait but not so good. The waiter forgot out drinks. The burger was burnt. The chicken was dry. The sweet tea was syrupy. The "Chicago" style calzone had a pound of pepperoni, no cheese and soggy dough. :(. Waiter was nice. Don't go ESPECIALLY if your from Chicago.

My first trip to this restaurant was today. I was not impressed. After being seated, our waitress was missing in action to take our drink order. A different waitress awkwardly took our drink order after walking past our table several times and apologized for not knowing where our own waitress was. After our waitress finally showed up, we decided to... More

Stopped here for the first time on Friday afternoon and was not disappointed. We had the Italian nachos for an appetizer. There was enough to serve 4 people easily and it was very good. Could have eaten that and not ordered the pizza. I chose to order the pizza and take the rest of the nachos home. Pizza was one... More

We walked in to place an order to go. It was done in less time than what was quoted which was surprising since they were packed & it was on a weekend night. They didn't have any specials which was dissappointing. The pizza was delicious and the prices comparable to most chain restaurants. Friendly staff. They also have the curbside... More

We ordered a large pizza to take out but the bar and restaurant were packed when we went to pick up the pizza. The bar offers a large variety of craft beers. The menu offers pizza with every topping imaginable. Its a little pricey but well worth it. We also ordered a crispy chicken salad and it was large enough... More

Visited here with family after the movies. Loved the atmosphere, location, menu and prices. Best beer selection I've seen in a long while. Pizza and appetizers were awesome!! Unfortunately the service totally sucked. The guy we had was slow, forgetful and generally not interested in his job. He brought us dirty napkins!! Only thing keeping this rating from being a...

Great menu of food choices but not very good wine choices. This place specializes in beer, so be forewarned if you're a wine lover. The Pepperoni Rolls are delicious. They have a good pizza buffet here too.
