We have enjoyed the pizza buffet at noon. It features pizza, cheese bread, and pasta. The restaurant in Iowa City features delicious cinnamon rolls on their buffet but this one does not and we miss those! You will want to be there during the busiest time so that the food on the buffet remains fresh as new pizzas come out... More

If you want good food and a specialty beer, this place is pretty good. If you want more than one or two beers and are budget concious at all, go somewhere else for drinks.

Pizza is good for the corporate kind. All around good sports tv environment. They have the lame beer tours....drink 25 beers for 200 bucks and get a key ring or tshirt. Wide variety of patrons. Bartenders are ok but you feel as if they didn't get the good gig somewhere else because of their baggage personalities. If ya like pizza... More

Had the spicy Calzone here and it was good. The service was fine too. Atmosphere was OK, just not my style of restaurant.

Great food awesome beer. If you are looking for a great hamburger in Cedar Falls Old Chicago has one of the best. There is always plenty of cold beer and of course 14 big screens.

Nothing out of the ordinary. Had a very polite and attentive waitress. Came in around 10pm on a Saturday and had fairly prompt service. I was brought the wrong beer, but I see how the mistake was made with the names of the beer. This is just a normal Old Chicago

The staff was friendly and accommodating. We had questions about the lunch buffet and the waitress was patient and explained it all to us.

Did the craft beer and pizza. Food was good and service decent. Our server was a little inexperience, does not the name of the beer. Given that this is drinking place, she should be better trained. Otherwise, not a bad place for pizza and to try out different beer.

In town for a conference, decided to try. The food was fabulous. Baked spaghetti, calzone, and salads were superb. Baked spaghetti is indescribable. Service is another story. Three in our party ordered strawberry daiquiri. They all were watery tasting had almost no strawberry flavor. They were pale pink in color. When speaking to our waiter, he shrugged and started to...
