This is one of our favorite places to go when we are in the area. They always have great food and a good atmosphere. It can get loud depending on what is going on in the area, but we love the place any way.

No reservations. Not super friendly at the host station. And don't plan a party there if you want great service. It's a fun bar and food scene but not user friendly for groups that are larger. Too bad since its location is great. Manager Brook is great - clone her and you have a good situation!

we went after the game-was able to get a table fairly quickly. Service was good-but wasn't a huge fan of the food. Pizzas were pretty greasy and mixed drinks were too sweet and watered down.

That's right, folks! I'll be back . . . this was our first visit to Old Chicago located at Southpointe since we moved to south Lincoln last October. With our busy schedules, holidays, etc. we just forgot about how good the food, service and atmosphere is . . . so I'll be back. I opted for the Barbecue Bacon Cheeseburger... More

I really, really like going to Old Chicago. The food is upscale bar food. The pepperoni rolls, jalapeno pretzels and italian nachos are must haves. The new pizza crust is awesome. Here is the one negative: Half the time we go we have the world's best service and the other times are just frustrating. Sometimes we wait over 30 minutes... More

We don't mind the food, but then again its a chain & how hard is that? Service has always been questionable at both locations, but the last visit at the downtown location was the absolute worst. We waited for nearly and hour after placing our order for supper not to mention the wait just for drinks. It was sad too,... More

Conveniet, friendly staff, tons of TVs for all the games, and a rock-solid menu. On the appetizer menu is peperoni pizza rolls, but they will also make them in buffalo chicken if you ask. Make sure and ASK, they are TASTY !!!!

I had the italian grinder calzone and it was okay. It was way too much crust and made me so full I couldn't enjoy the rest. The taste was average, nothing great. Atmosphere is nice. I would probably go back and order maybe a pizza or something. A lady I was with ordered a pizza and it looked good.
