We ordered 4 different Appetizers including Italian Nachos, cheese bread, deep fried pickles & soft pretzel with cheese dipping sauce. The bar section was very busy with hockey fans, but the service was very quick nevertheless. I... More

Given the not too friendly weather during our visit to Duluth, no one in our group felt like going out to dinner. Old Chicago happened to be a nearby choice to get take out food. The service was quick, friendly, and efficient. As for the food, it was not particularly memorable but it wasn't bad either. What we really liked... More

We stopped in on Saturday afternoon to watch the Iowa vs. Iowa State football game. They were really nice and sat us toward the back of the restaurant and we ordered drinks and appetizer. It was a long game and the staff always checked on us and didn't rush us out the door. I bet the food was good as... More

No really, that atmosphere was somewhat stale, the smell in the air was that of rotted cheese. I managed to get over it, as the waiter was generally a nice college kid which helped ease my tension. The menu looked good but a bit pricey -- but if you have a GREAT SIGN out front that advertises OLD CHICAGO, then... More

Did not get pizza, decided on sandwiches. Good but not the best we have ever had. Went later evening so was not maybe welcomed like we might have been if we were earlier.

A usual stop for us everytime we visit Duluth. Nice atmosphere and a lot of tap beers to choose from. Great pizza and calzones are our favorites!
