I have to commend this restaurant because Duluth is expanding in the type and quality of restaurants but we keep visiting Old Chicago because it's a fun place. Nothing fancy, really, but it's the place my husband and I go to for good pizza, good drinks, and for playing trivia. We stop there every time we visit Duluth, which is... More

Come here every year when passing through Duluth on vacation. I've been to many Old Chicago's and for some reason the food tastes best at this location. Nothing too fancy or over the top but it hits the spot. Servers are friendly and restaurant is clean.

Spendy dinner for a family. Our waitress was excellent. Good food. It was still a nice dinner for our family and we were expecting to pay a lot. We scan only eat like this once in awhile, but the food did no disappoint. I hope that makes sense.

Me and da wife and da kid went here. We have been to other locations and it was always tip-top. However, this was not on par with our prior experience with this franchise. The other items on the menu look great but we always stick to pizza here as noted in our family restaurant manifesto. They were busy so maybe... More

It's a good thing the food was good because it took forever to get it. We went here because the adjacent hotel gave us coupons for free drinks. We arrived at 5:20 p.m. and ordered beverages. The server said he would return and take our food order but we think he got lost. After finally ordering we didn't get our... More

The food was just OK. Place is large and service was good but we were expecting more of a "normal" pizza place menu. We have gone to these Old Chicago's before in other states and have really liked them. The selection of food and the way it was prepared was a little different than what we were expecting.

Big place to keep the family happy or for me to sit at the bar and have a small pizza and beer. Service is good and the beer flows well

Old Chicago is located in a former warehouse made of brick and wooden beams. The front of the restaurant has an active full bar. The ceiling is two or three stories high and consists of the bottom of the next level's floor. Heating and water pipes are exposed. Beyond the bar section are three dining area separated by half walls.... More
