First of all, this place has great pizza and second it's a " Cubbie" bar! I was there on a week night for game #2 between the Cubs and the Indians. The bar was packed but there was plenty of space and big screens to watch in back. The staff is very friendly and the food and drink prices are... More

Had to eat because I was starving. However I ordered a large cheese pizza for $16. Worst pizza ever. Had a weird taste. And a pool of grease in the middle one of the worse pizzas I have ever tasted. I have had $5 pizzas much better than this.

They have the best pizza. The crust is almost like a cracker. It did take a while but it was definitely worth the wait. They have a nice outdoor area for smokers. The staff is nice and pleasant. The bar area is a little dark for my taste but it's a bar.

There are many great pizza places in Chicago but Waterworks pizza is a stand out. Yes, the decor, well it reminds me of a lodge in Wisconsin and needs some work but the pizza nothing short of outstanding.

I've been eating pizza from Waterworks for over 15 years, and I was concerned it may not be the same after the new owners took over. I was right, but in a really improved way! The place was immediately cleaned up, and building improvements started. The new owners, as I understand, are opening the back area for additional seating, and... More

We just came back from Vegas and craving some good pizza (pizza in Vegas tastes like cardboard!) and took our chances on waterworks. My husband had seen the sign driving down Ogden and made the suggestion. I was a bit surprised by the interior - what looks to be a whole in the wall bar with a few loyal patrons.... More
