There was ice in my beer, and they didnít bring me a plate for my garlic bread. Not impressed.

Typical chain ambiance and food quality, although some of the pizzas are pretty tasty for the area. The beer selection is initially compelling for a chain restaurant, but the experience is significantly flawed by the ice-cold beers served in frosted mugs (seriously?) and the ever-present solvent taste common to everything on tap here, which ruins the tasting experience and makes every beer taste like the last one. Go for the pizza, and do not sample anything new and expect an integrous tasting experience.

Old Chicago has great people that work there. They will remember you after only two visits. The taps are constantly switching out for different ones, with very few staying the same for more than a few weeks. There are also two decently sized coolers filled with bottles. The mini-tours they do are a great way for people just getting into different beer to be forced to try something new.

Nice, new building in a commercial district. Many beers on tap, but nothing rare, and only one offering from Founders, which is only 1 hour away. Pizza was great, chicago style is lacking the sliced tomatoes, though. Worth a visit.

Easy to find location directly off Grand River and Okemos Road. Large lot. Building is clean and orderly and is another corporate remodel. Bar on left and seating for food on right. Bar has taps in the middle with coolers on both sides with bottles. Staff is freindly with good beer knowledge. Menu is corporate apps and dinner selections. I had the Fish & Chips, large portions,very good. Good location, beer selection and food. Well worth the stop.

My new "home" OC, having fallen in love with the chain while living in Colorado, I was overjoyed to see one finally open in Michigan. If youíve been to an OC before, you know what to expect--the food is identical and the selection of beers is the same as any other OC: outstanding! The one thing I noticed about this OC is that instead of being "purpose-built," it appears to have been some other restaurant in the recent past. The result: it feels MUCH larger than any other OC Iíve been in. Now hoping theyíll consider an Ann Arbor location next, as Okemos is about an hour away from me.
