On tap and bottled beer selection was not really as diverse as expected, the food was good but part of the reason to go there was what I heard about the beer selection.

I stopped in here because I heard they had 110 bottles or something like that and I wanted to pick up some new local rates. I was shocked to find they didnít have anything I hadnít had before. I was hoping to find some local bottles from Two Brothers or maybe some WI breweries but they didnít have anything like that. Tap list wasnít any better. They had two taps from local brewpubs, but I had already visited them. Then the guy offered me Shiner. Shiner! Really? Bah. The ambiance felt like a smoky Chuck E. Cheese, and the bartender didnít talk to me much once I ordered a Bent River and paid out. He did say that the management was in the process of getting rid of several labels. Gotta make room for that Bud Light I suppose. I wish I hadnít stopped.

Used to go here all the time, but I live about 45 minutes away and stopped making the trip after awhile.
The ambiance is fine, but better during the day. At night the restaurant side eventually closes and the bar side fills up with loud, crazy, drunk regulars. Fun, but not for everyone.
The service is usually fine, but better on the restaurant side. Usually on weekdays at night there arenít enough servers or bartenders around. If you become a regular, though, you will be set.
The beer selection, both draft and bottle/can, is large and varied, but it almost never changes. Once you get through your beer tour, youíve had it all and you get tired of going.
The food is typical, but good. Thick pizza, good sandwiches, and I love the Italian Nachos.
The value is probably the worst part of this place and the reason I stopped going. The beers are very expensive unless you stick around for the dollar off happy hour prices at night. This fact combined with the fact that they barely ever get anything new is why Iíve stopped going.
Overall, itís a decent place with good food and a lot of beer, but once youíve had it, youíve had it.

Stopped in for drinks and food back in late July with some family and friends. Was pleased to see that they had local beers from Bent River (Moline) and Blue Cat (Rock Island) along with many other good choices.

Stopped in to check on their beer menu. Checking to see what local micros were on hand. Not a bad selection, food is typical Old Chicago. Overall a decent place to find a local beer and dinner.

Iíll admit up front that I donít like OC pizzas. They donít even closely resemble a true Chicago stuffed deep pizza and this chain can be expensive, 2 appetizers and a pizza can run easily over $30 and thatís without drinks. The " World Beer Tour" also I donít think is worth taking, you have to drink and PAY for a lot of mediocre beer to complete the tour. OC does have lunch and happy hour specials that help reduce meal cost, but the quality is hit or miss. This OC has the worst overall beer selection of all the OCís Iíve been to, and while this OC has all typical bar games that the chain has to offer, if youíre a nonsmoker, by 8pm the smoke level in the bar can get too much to take. If you have a chance , go to Bier Stube instead of here, the food and air is better than here at this OC. No Millstream in bottle or tap when I was there, an Iowa brewery. There is no real reason to go here unless you want a pizza slightly better than Dominoís.

Visited here during a weekday night for an early dinner. It wasnít too busy when I was there. Same general beer selection as every other Old Chicago, a few regional micros, some common micros, and a bunch of macros. I got a burger, and it was good. Very large portions.
