We've eaten here before but will avoid in the future. We did carry out and asked for deep dish. What we got was NOT deep dish, but a Pizza Hut hand tossed type crust, only more bready and less tasty. About half the toppings I'd expect, and just nothing like what I expected for deep dish. The lettuce could have... More

This place has some of the best pizza around! We stopped in for lunch and had their lunch special of a personal size pizza and a salad or soup for $7.99. I got the deep dish pizza and a salad which was amazing!! I could only eat half the pizza. My husband had the medium crust and soup, he was... More

Stopped here with my family of four on two separate days driving up the North Shore and back. The food was tasty: the Whisky Bacon Burger was to die for and the kids spaghetti is high on the list of my 6-yr old's favorites! Prices can be a bit high, but if you take advantage of the lunch specials, Monday... More

I've been to other Old Chicago pizza chains, and this was definitely one of the worst. The deep dish pizza we ordered was all bread and lacked sufficient toppings. We went close to closing so it was late and the cook may have had a long day, but it was some of the worst pizza I've ever had.

Good selection of local beers (try the flights) and a large variety of red/white pizza options. Plenty of tables to serve a large crowd. Good service, good beer, good pizza, nice atmosphere. As a vacation stop, staying nearby, I'm glad we decided to try it.

We ordered take out at 7pm. We had to wait 20 minutes longer than they told us. Then we got back to our hotel and the order was all messed up. With 3 hungry kids and the time of night, we just made it work. The kids had spaghetti and that was good. The garlic bread was soaked in butter... More

We have made this our new place to go out for lunch the one time that we go out to eat. The food is good with a nice variety to choose from.

We had a great meal and great service. Were a little leary to try it after our bad experience last year but it was awesome.

Visiting Duluth with the family, thought we'd enjoy something familiar and went to Old Chicago. Seated fairly quickly especially since there are so many events in town. Everyone was friendly and greeted quickly. Nathan was our server and was fabulous! Made the experience with 3 little ones not only smooth but absolutely joyful! Can't sing him enough praise, he was... More
