We ate here on a busy Friday night because our first restaurant picks for dinner all had very long wait times. Overall the dinner was ok, but not what we expected for the price. We paid more than ten dollars for a very small individual pizza , and the same amount for a crispy chicken salad that was mostly just... More

I had a personal pan Chicago crust pizza . Yummy reminded me of the pizza I had growing up in Cicero, IL. Plenty of fresh toppings - the marinara sauce was just right with the proper amount of seasonings. Will make another run here.

Everything was good, until we saw our server picking stuff off our order as he put it on a tray. The manager was right next to him, but when we talked to him about it he was oblivious to the servers actions.

I had been wanting to try this place for some time and I have to admit, I was really pleased. The menu has a great variety of food, there were so many things I wanted to try! One thing of note, for those you looking for a lighter place to eat, look someplace else. Old Chicago specializes in Chicago food,... More

Went to lunch there today with 8 Co workers... lunch variety is fabulous. Only had an hour and they where able to get us in and out. Our server Shawn was on top of all our needs.

The pizza we ordered was good. I like the thin crust the best. Salads ordered were good and nice looking. The drinks from the bar tasted as they should. Overall a good experience. One of my favorite things to eat here is the Italian nachos.

I couldn't get any service at the bar so I went to the dining area and asked for a seat. They had to go in the back and locate my server. It just isn't worth my time going back here. I don't care how decent food is, crappy service ruins the experience. I won't be going back.
