I stop in at Old Chicago after work occasionally because it is conveniently located.

The beer selection is pretty impressive for a chain like this. They only have garbage on tap, but if you are OK with bottles, then you will find something you like. They have some "beers around the world" gimmick to get you to drink more. I don't bother with that, but what it means is they have a selection of beers from several different countries.

I tend to stick to the American micro brews when I am at Old Chicago. Especially the Flying Dog - Horn Dog. It is only $4 a bottle and I love that stuff.

The decor is typical of chains. This Old Chicago is located inside a Holiday Inn, so it is pretty tame. I find the bar area to be too loud because of the high, open ceiling. I usually sit in the dining room so I can converse with my coworkers.

The servers generally act as if they are dead inside. I suspect that this is a pretty boring place to work.

The food is terrible. They serve what has become the typical American chain restaurant food. Things like burgers, pasta, and pizza. Everything I have had has been bland and uninspiring. I usually try to balance my beer drinking with food, but I really hate eating at this place.

In conclusion, I will continue to stop in for an after work brew occasionally, but if I had any better options, I would not miss Old Chicago.
