“Bad For the price”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Service was poor felt like we were intruding on there social hour, waitress got our order wrong and was not apologetic about it. For a Friday it was dead and I see now the reasoning. Pizza hut quality pizza, we order the deep fried pickles and got 6 small pickles. For a $40 bill was not worth the money or the time. Do yourself a favor don't waist your time

“Pleasant Enough, Normal Place”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

The staff seemed friendly enough without being in your face. Not always easy to find them when needed, tho. Food pleased us but nothing to rave about. A standard restaurant; good enough.

“Friendly staff, rude manager”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Pizza was great and service was wonderful. They didn't accept valid coupon that we had and manager was EXTREMELY rude to us. Disappointing to be talked down to by them.

“Some areas to improve, but nice pub”
Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

Old Chicago has a solid beer selection, and rotate beers to bring in new stuff, however the menu is never current with what is actually on tap.

Don't know if this is a local management flaw, or company error, but it is frustrating to not have a complete list. It also puts undue pressure on wait staff, as it is unrealistic to expect them to keep up with the entire list in their head.

Staff is friendly, and service speed is welcoming. I ate the chopped salad, and everything was fresh and enjoyable.

Good place to watch sports, enjoy a frosty beverage and relax. One last note, they will give you a sample if any beer, which is a great, and welcome service.

“Love the Pizza”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Where else can you get authentic deep-dish Chicago-style without having to go to Chicago? Love the create-your-own and the flexibility of a dining room or bar area to sit at. Also like the big tables to accommodate larger groups
