First thing. This is not a service related issue. Our service was great. Tony's bill $62.00. $15.00 tip. Tony was new. Okay.....I am done not getting what I pay for.I remember these Old Chicago joints when I lived in Chicago. I never went.Today was a celebration between my wife and I. I thought going to Old Chicago would be great since we've never been to one.The food looked like some I baked in the oven after I got home from school....However, the ketchup I used then was more flavorful.When have all chains like these lost their way? You couldn't have developed this model unless. you had something special.Just like Buffalo Wild Wings, Pizza Hut, McDonald's etc.At one time your food was worth sharing with the world.Now the world is better without you.

Arrived Saturday night and fell in love. Quick friendly and quality service. Beer selection is fantastic, cocktails are great and the food is outstanding.

Review №3

We are new to Bozeman and thought we would try this pizza place and we were very happy we did! The pizza pinwheels were amazing and I got the Tuscan pizza. I had to slow down to savor it, it was so delicious! Definitely will get takeout again! However, I will not dine in as the tables are not 6 ft apart and no one is wearing a mask.

Review №4

Old Chicago has a great variety of draft beers, family dining and plenty of TV's to watch the game! Food is good too!

Review №5

Appetizer was good. Pizza was not cooked well.

Review №6

Food was very good. Went there once for dine in and once for pick up. Was disappointed that we waited additional 20 minutes to pick up our food. Also my salad had the wrong dressing with it.

Review №7

Good food and service. But saw some distancing issues. Many were family groups obviously glad to be out and about.

Review №8

Old Chicago always has something good to eat, but tonight was especially amazing. We had probably the best waitress we have ever had at a restaurant. She was attentive, and checked on us regularly. She was quick to spark conversation, and made sure all of our needs were met. If you want some great service, and a beautiful friendly smile, then check out Old Chicago in Bozeman, and ask to be seated in Lindsay's section. You won't regret it!!

Review №9

We enjoyed a socially-distanced lunch on the patio. It was so nice to eat out! We opted to have the lunch special (all-you-can-eat Caesar or dinner salad and a small pizza of your choice). I opted for the thin crust and my husband had original. We were both happy! The food was tasty, the service was fantastic (as keeping my iced tea glass full is no easy feat!), and the atmosphere was sunny and pleasant.

Review №10

This was my first time to this Old Chicago in over 10 years. I stopped going because the food was just bland, nothing special, run of the mill bar food. We thought we would give it another shot and we are so glad we did. The calzones were very flavorful, loaded with cheese and the perfect amount of meat in each bite. Didn't have room for any dessert, but we'll be back again soon to try many other dishes and save room for the pizza cookie.

Review №11

Great attention to patrons. Mainly drop in to the bar for drinks and am always served quickly and checked out quickly. Fabulous outdoor patio and an incredible happy hour that can't be beat. Right next to the fabulous Hilton Garden Inn for those near that hotel.

Review №12

Staying at hotel 3 blocks from restaurant. Ordered for curbside pick up. Got there and called. Still had to go in. Got salads with pizza which was wrong from what we ordered. Was told they had no utensils. Really??? And we had salads. We picked up and left. Got back to room. Pizza was wrong. Wrong dressing. Called and was told we would have to come back instead of correcting problem and sending someone out. Will never go back again to this location. Have always had good service. Not from here. Thanks to Nicole and Mason

Very good food and beers.. staff was friendly and helpful.

Review №14

Worst dining experience in years. 2 waitresses for an entire half of a restaurant on a Labor Day weekend in a popular destination town. Most people on the wait list were leaving. Hostess was so busy she was near running. She dropped some menus on the floor and had to leave them because she was too busy. Waitress obviously could not be attentive because she was overloaded. Our food took an hour to arrive and it was not right. My 3 ingredient calzone came out with 2 ingredients, one of which was doubled up on. The bar side had tables open but they were all filthy. Nobody had time to clean them. Come on, management, get it together.

Review №15

Very good food. Lively atmosphere. Very nice people.

Review №16

Great food! Insane portions! FOH staff could use some customer service skills.

Review №17

Great food, great atmosphere. Large beer list. With some great local and some average Montana brews. The calzones are perfect size and they have some unique combinations of flavors. A wide variety if entrees and appetizers to choose from.

Review №18

Service was great! In my opinion, the food was slightly above average. Needed to taste more of the "Old" I suppose.

Review №19

Service was good until the bill was dropped off. We didn't want desert. So the bill was dropped off and wasn't checked on after that. Had to flag her down for more ice tea which didn't have hardly any ice in it.

Review №20

The food is good my only complaint is the rude girl at the Front she asks what side I would like to sit on and I say the dining room and she has an attitude every time I go there when I say every time I really mean that. Atleast five times now and I'm sick of the service the service is worse than it brings the food down when this happens.

Review №21

We keep giving this restaurant a chance but I don't know that we will again. Our waitresses and waiters have all been good and outdoor seating is very nice during the summers and with covid-19. However, the food is consistently, just blah.

Review №22

Loved this place, great service... Excellent service and ice cold beer. 6 stars

Review №23

The food was good. Their patio needed a deep cleaning power wash but otherwise a good experience all around.

Review №24

Good food, decent service, plenty to drink and lots of TVs. Most of us had hamburgers and they were very tasty.

Review №25

Great food and service! I appreciate restaurants that let you dine in!!!

Review №26

Always wonderful! We love OC Bozeman! - great food, great staff, great beer, and always family friendly!

Review №27

Food was good..service was lacking..made us wait 15 min after taking our cc while he took order for table of 12

Review №28

Always a solid stop, I mean lot of beer, good pizza and lots of sports.

Review №29

Good food, great service, and the Italian Nachos are a must!

Review №30

The food is so incredible every single time we go. We have never had a bad customer service experience ever! And the bartender Missy or Misty is one of the best in the business! Great atmosphere as well! It's our go to place in Bozeman for a date lunch!

Review №31

Literally.....staff MAKES this place GREAT !Food's good too .... Lol

Review №32

Top notch performance by our waitress Shae. Very speedy tonight. Loved the calzone.

Review №33

Drinks were amazing, customer service rocked, nachos were the highlight. Jessica is an amazing bartender. Wonderful experience during our special occasion.

Review №34

Nice Old Chicago chain. Great pizza and wings. And go to the small casino...loose some money and drink another beer.

Review №35

Had the Chicago7 deep dish and it was great, we had great service

Review №36

We love to stop at Old Chicago on roadtrips that take us through Bozeman. Their food and service is excellent and staff were masked.

Review №37

Food is good. Customer service is AWFUL. It is the worst in the state. If you can go somewhere else, please do. Wait time, rude and careless waitresses, every so often we have found someone that cares. After today's expereince we are never going back.

Review №38

One of my favorite places to go for pizza salad and draft beer!Some months back Old Chicago changed the way they make their thin crust. It went from savory and delicious to a lot like cardboard. It's really a shame.

Review №39

Great lunch and beer special. Friendly service and great outdoor seating

Review №40

Love to go to happy hour and the wings are SO GOOD!

Review №41

It was busy, even for a Wednesday. Service was great. Food took a little longer but understandable since it was busy. My waiter was on top of his game and always came around before I looked for him. I will recommend this place to friends and family for all types of fun events

Review №42

The food was really good, but the wait was pretty long. Friendly staff and a nice environment though.

Review №43

Friday nights are the best and the bartender does a really good with the alcohol and the food is amazing. Saturdays are the worst day ever because we were asked who's going to drive when we ordered 3 glasses of beer which contained 2% alcohol.

Review №44

Great patio area, lots of beers on tap, good place to meet up with people for some drinks and a bite to eat.

Review №45

Love the place and the environment. Even during a pandemic, they still give great service and food.

Review №46

My wife and I love coming here! They have great food, service and drink specials! Highly recommend!

Review №47

Great pizza/sandwhiches/ and good mask wearing by the staff, not enough by the customers though

Review №48

Got half of the food that I ordered . When I called and then was acting dumb when I called. They took stuff off my order and didn't say anything about it I will never order from here again

Review №49

Great service. Easy to get to and great to eat out on the patio.

Review №50

The person who served us was the best... she made sure we had everything we need and waited for the rest of our party to get service there was amazing nice job!!!

Review №51

Great service and food. Happy hour is awesome.

Review №52

We all got refills except me (who paid the bill). My pizza was a bit greasy and definitely not a Chicago style pizza. It still was delicious. I would not recommend the fish and chips too greasy. The pizzas are a safe choice.

Review №53

So, I was born & raised in Chicago and was DYING for deep dish pizza. The crust is very different from all other pizza because it's made with cornmeal.Sadly, the deep dish pizza here had no taste or color of a cornmeal crust. It did, however, have a dusting of cornmeal from the pizza pan, but that's about it.The rest was just okay because I ordered spinach, mushrooms & garlic, but instead of spinach, I got some shredded fresh basil on top of the pizza. I love fresh basil, so I left it alone, but that's not what I ordered.

Review №54

The host Joey MIGHT NOT be the hostess for your first impression on a Guest. She said we have chairs out side that are open. We asked to sit inside and she as she Sighed loudly said waite here and ill see if any one wants a new table.It was like she was doing us a favor.

Review №55

A perfect experience! A total 180° from our previous visit. The food was epic, pizza was made to perfection, everything was delicious. Tried the new Oktoberfest Sausage and Gouda stuffed mushrooms in an Alfredo and bacon sauce. I highly recommend it. Their Greek side salad is the perfect addition to any meal. Only thing that would have made it better would have been sliced pepperoncinis. Kids loved their chick strips and fries, fried to crispy excellence. And the kids ice cream sundaes topped with cookies, fudge, whipped cream and a cherry on top was truly the metaphor in real life. Maya is an amazing server. If you can request being in her section, she will take care of you like Royalty. A+++ visit. Can't wait to have another evening like this at Old Chicago again.

Review №56

Worst experience I've ever had. Food was slow and inaccurate, restaurant was filthy, and the manager was a total jerk!!!!

Review №57

My pasta was really dry and my boyfriend got severe diarrhea from the calzone he had. Yikes.

Review №58

Lovely outdoor patio area with gorgeous floral hanging pots and a great atmosphere for relaxing and enjoying your Old Chicago fare.

Review №59

Chris was our waiter and he was fantastic. My husband had the Chicago 7 Stromboli. He loved our. I got macaroni bites and the boneless wings with applewood rub... Delish! Ahhhmazing! Only took 40 minutes from sit down to done.

Review №60

Great Pesto chicken pasta & server was very nice

Review №61

Happy Hour is amazing.

Review №62

Hmmm... why do I like the place? It's a great place. Reminds me of Cheers. Except, they don't have to know your name... they just know how to make the absolute dish the way you want it and serve it in a way that you feel you're familiar. It makes me want to know their name!

Review №63

Great place!! Food is awesome and Rod at the bar took great care of us =)

Review №64

Thin crust pizza yummy!

Review №65

Ordered fish and chips and cold Smoke Scottish beer. Great atmosphere, had our meal on the patio as the weather was very nice. Wait staff be was getting everyone taken care of quickly. Fun dinner for sure.

Review №66

Great food & service !!

Review №67

They have awesome grilled chicken wings.

Review №68

Good place to eat! Good staff, good pizza! I'd recommend it and eat it again!! Located near the lowes store it's easy to get in and out.We sent 3 families here and the same report. Good food and good service

Review №69

Pizza was great and so was the service

Review №70

Fantastic service, and fantastic food!

Review №71

They were busy so maybe that's why our waitress didn't want to serve us

Review №72

Waitress had a mask a t ound her neck but was not wearing it. Hurt her tip for sure

Review №73

Shae was adorable as a server, however, we were seated in the bar since there was only one waiter on- with 2 toddlers. Timing was good for her to bring menus and drinks. We then waited for 10 minutes after we were ready to order. I had to ask the hostesses for booster seats (they were given to me very dirty- sticky with stuff stuck all over them). We then waited another 20 minutes for sub par food. The spaghetti pie was incredibly dry, to the point that there was not nearly enough marinara on top to eat but 1/3rd of it. My kids had cold spaghetti with a cold meatball. Literally the only thing in our 4 person order that was warm was my fish n chips. The fries were inedible, but the fish tasted good.It definitely was not a place I'd eat again in the near future especially since there are so many options here in town.

Review №74

Predictably good for lunch. Eat lunch here frequently. Their lunch specials are a good value.

Review №75

Get the pepperoni rolls. You won't be dissappointed.

Review №76

I have been here 2x and it has been great. They offer a lot of pizza crust and both have been great. Appetizers were fast and good, lot of beer options both local and imported

Review №77

Awesom food and tablet for the kids

Review №78

Don't waste your money! Frozen pizzas are better than what we had from here, and alot cheaper! Very disappointed because it had so many good reviews.

Review №79

Honestly one of the better beer selections in town. They have an open seating which is a plus and outdoor which I really enjoyed. The bar is ample and there are TV's to watch sports. The menu is very American bar food. Worth the try if you're looking for something safe

Review №80

Good food, great atmosphere. Drinks are yummy too. Pretty fairly priced.

Review №81

Went to outback steakhouse which was suppose to be open until 11 pm based on what was posted online. Arrived and doors were locked. The door said open until 10 pm. It was a little before 930 pm. We called to speak to a local "outbacker" and were hung up on. Ended up going to old chicago and had awesome food and service.

Review №82

Good food, nice atmosphere, just kind of generic.

Review №83

Nice place in Bozeman for an afternoon lunch and beer. Good food and nice beer selection. I'll be back.

Review №84

Willow "Like the tree" served my mother, my autistic brother and myself. She was super understanding and charismatic! She checked on us regularly and was super friendly. I even left my car keys and she ran out to the parking lot to bring them to me. Great customer service! Thank you Willow!

Review №85

They have a really good customer service. I was surprised at how good of a local beer selection they have despite being a chain restaurant. I would recommend Old Chicago over Buffalo Wild Wings to watch games and enjoy good food. Plus Happy hour is every day of the week even on saturdays and sundays!

Review №86

Good pizza joint with a solid selection of beer. It also had solid prices on everything. Staff seemed a tad unenthused but were overall attentive and efficient.

Review №87

Overpriced since the covid started.

Review №88

Our waitress was very much on her game. Pleasant and punctual. Great food.

Review №89

The Tipsy Grasshopper was yummy! Try one if you like mint shakes!!

Review №90

We ordered three kinds of wings...all of them were like warm, dried out and tough. It was very disappointing.

Review №91

The staff is always friendly and OC has the best beer selection in town for sure. But unfortunately it seems like recently the food quality has gone downhill quite a bit. I ordered the thai pizza. I've had it several times in the past. This time it was so watery I only ate a couple of pieces.

Review №92

We had a great experience againOur Food was perfect and the service was outstanding.

Review №93

Review №94

Great atmosphere, good food and wonderful wait staff.

Review №95

After about 12 hours of driving, we were very glad to find this place still open at 9:00 pm. And we were very pleasantly surprised by the friendly service, great food and huge beer selection. My craft beer burger was absolutely delicious...juicy with yummy toppings of onions and beer cheese sauce. And the onion rings were some of the best I have ever tasted! My guy had a mini pan pizza that was also tasty with generous toppings. While I had wine, he had a flight of local beers...we were both happy with our choices! Our server, Cheyenne, was very friendly and attentive! It was a wonderful way to end a very long day!! I hear an Old Chicago is coming to my home town. I predict we will be regulars!

Review №96

The service was spot on. The selection was outstanding. The price is right for the food offered. Old Chicago is absolutely an ideal spot for that Italian urge. The only downfall on this trip was the appetizer, the pepperoni rolls didn't actually have any pepperoni in them.

Review №97

Really great burger and salad, we wanted our salads before the burger but they only showed up about two minutes before the burgers. Other than that it was great.

Review №98

Great Service!

Review №99

To me this is a sit at the bar, drink beer and eat deep dish pizza place. And I love it all the more for that.
