Good food and friendly service

Neal Becker

Food and service was very good ! Weekdays until 3 special small two topping pizza and all you can eat salad . Perfect !

Jamie Hatlestad

Really love their quality and unique pizza. For some reason, I like the bar area way better than the restaurant. Beer selection is numerous.

Susan Doller

My son and I went for lunch. Tasty food and attentive service. Just no Happy Mothers Day to acknowledge me, especially when I used a Mother's Day coupon.

Ammon Buhler

Great happy hour specials friendly stuff and good food.

Carolyn Z

Great food, great ambience.

Matt Gustafson

So many good memories here, lots of fun for family and friends! Mini tours are always fun to take part in, as well as a world beer tour, where you drink 110 beers. Great menu also, and their happy hour is pretty sweet. The pub pizzas are absolutely on point, and I just cant get enough of them. Always fun to play the trivia games they have on the TV's, or watch the fail video compilations when they put them on. Great place to go if you are into sports, too.

This place was a hit with the signficiant other and I! Our waitress Katie was very much a delight and provided excellent service. We ordered Bacon Mac and Cheese bites (those were SO good!) And then a large Italian Grinder pizza which was deliciously hot. Everything came out in a timely manner as well. Parking gets full easily in the back directly behind Old Chicago, but if you don't mind a little brisk walk from Red Lobster, it's all good. I look forward to coming back here when I'm visiting in town!

Will Hayward

The menu is quite large. Yet the foood ............. it’s quite a. Goood. Meal. IMO ( in my opinion ). Yessir.

Jeri Cherkas

Came in on a Saturday night with 30 people and received excellent service. We didn't have to wait very long at all for all of our food. Great pizza!


Good service good food good luck parking

Sherri Levanen

A fun place to meet friends!! Their Italian Salad is superb!!

Ronald Quade

This is a must on the north shore. Great bbq. Wonderful fish and fresh food all around.

James Wallin

How can one go wrong? Canal Park is definitely a place to visit. Old Chicago is staple of Canal Park. There's so many different beers to try and taste.

Scott Schweitzer

We paid $37 for a large "deep dish" 1 topping pizza and a salad. After seeing the pizza I asked if it was mistakenly made as a regular crust. The server said "no, our Chicago deep dish is not a typical Chicago style." I don't get it. Chicago is in your name. Shouldn't it be a normal Chicago style deep dish?

Shawn Lund

It took an hour and a half to get waited on, get our food and pay. This was at 2pm and the place was only 1/4 full maybe

M Sanders

Really good pizza, and beer! The service was also very good.

James Allison

Food was great! Server was awesome! It gets crowded and busy so don't expect your order right away.

Kelly R

Great food and was a quick, easy stop when we were in Duluth for a car show.

Rick Weech

peggy armstrong

Great food and service

Ryan Sunny

It's okay food was so so. Not the best old chicago out there

Sam Buhn

Amazing food an server

Cory Haworth

Good pizza but sausage is quite bland

Aaron Budish

Love the pizza and atmosphere. A little loud at times if you're trying to have alot of conversation but the food is great so you should be stuffing your mouth lol.

Duane Hanson

Good pizza and great selection of tap beer. Just a little pricey on their small pizza.

Bully Yay

Always good food and great service. I highly recommend the Chicago Fire calzone (but only if you like spicy). Otherwise the Chicago 7 Pizza is fantastic.

Andy Ladwig

Had a burger here and it tasted like it was charred with motor oil. I regretfully ate the burger anyway and proceeded to throw up a few hours later. Wife and kids had pizza and they said it was pretty meh. Would not go here again.

Alexander Julin

Good pizza. Service was good. Atmosphere was nice without being too much of one thing ie: not quite a bar, not quite a sit down place, not too loud but not too quiet either. Pizzas/drinks are a little spendy but is adaquately priced based on quality of food/drink.

Tammara G

Great food, great service, lovely atmosphere


They have really good burgers and the servers are insanely nice. Usually I hate it when every person that works at a restaurant always asks you "how was your meal" but this one only asked like twice and was fast as well.

Heather Marie

I ordered the stuffed manicotti and it was amazing. We had deep fried pickles to start and the sweet thai chili dipping sauce is delicious! My daughter had the volcano wings and she loved them. She said she would love to eat there again. It is located very close to the lighthouse and lots to see right outside. Free parking when you're a customer!

Rachel Harding

Kiana was our server and she did an amazing job! We always love coming to Old Chicago and she did an amazing job serving on us this evening.

Saptarshi Sengupta

There's quite a lot to love about this place.. Firstly, the ambiance is truly reflective of the age old Chicago style of pizza restaurants generations have come to admire! The food is of really high standards and the selection of ales and beers is at par with some of the best breweries out there! My recommendation on beer would be the Mexican honey light ale!.. Prices are fantastic and it's really quite easy on the pocket especially if you go after 9 O'Clock since that's when the night pricing begins (single topping pizza is for 3$!).. The staff is also extremely friendly!.. All in all, a really wonderful experience!

Andrew Weisz

Fantastic visit! We had some late night pizzas and they were amazing. Great atmosphere, great food, and a great staff

Troy Nowicki

Great late night happy hour deals. Pub pizza was excellent!


Quality pub food (and more). Best late night specials in Duluth! - go after 9 for $3 pub pizzas and $3 tap beers.

Damon Laking

Great pizza! I had the thin crust double pepperoni with hot sauce and my wife had the Chicago thick crust Hawaiian with the Thai sauce and that was amazing! Lots of room there for large groups also. I would definitely go back.

Hot Wheels Hardass

Never a let-down. Amazing pizza as always

John Jesperson

Best happy hour in town. $3 tap beer and $2 pub pizzas after 9pm. I have been going here for going on 6 years now and many a good night with friends has been had here. Personal recommendation for a pub pizza is chicken with buffalo sauce with a side of blue cheese.

Michael LaValley

Favorite place to go when friends are visiting town. Huge seating area and the food is exceptional for the “Canal Park” price.

bow one

Served up pizza and salad for our girls HS Hockey team. Great food and friendly staff. A very enjoyable experience.

Alicia Palesotti

The food here is always good! One of my favorite things is their Italian Nachos. Google it. So good. I'll have them add black olives too. Their pizzas are amazing! We did the Ale Crust (hand tossed), the crust was light and flakey but still had that nice browned toasting to it. The sauce was good. We did build your own. Two thumbs up.

Michael Wilson

Entrance is extremely difficult for disabled persons. The best parking is behind the restaurant, but there are stairs at that entrance. The front is better, but it's difficult to find parking that is close to it.

Karla Rue

I love old Chicago! When I want good think crust pizza this is the place to go! Good beer, good food, pizza rolls are amazing! Always friendly service also!

Crystal Arellano

The service was great and the food was delicious.

Todd Holmstrom

Stopped over for lunch. The bartender was prompt and polite. However, that's the last good thing I have to say about my experience. I ordered the Thai Chicken Salad. The lettuce was all very light green or white, several shades lighter than a good romaine should be. And to call it a chicken salad is a joke. I think I could order a small chicken wing from a grocery store deli and I'd have more meat and better quality than was on this salad. I was about to ask the bartender if they forgot to put the chicken on, as I had to dig through to find it. I think the wontons on the salad took up a lot more space than the chicken did. If I'm going to pay $13-$14 (after tax) for a salad, I expect it to be of high quality. To put it mildly, this one was not. I hadn't been to Old Chicago for a year or so. Now that I work in Canal Park, I'm disappointed to know that I'll have one less option for lunch.

cory kujawa

Highly recomend the Italian nachos!

James Ryan

Old Chicago was one of my favorite restaurants when they had a location in Blaine, MN. We have always had great service at the Duluth location as well, until last night. We walked in during the dinner rush, around 6:30, and waited 30 minutes to be seated. Not unexpected when its busy, but when I walked to the restroom with my son, half of the tables were empty. It seemed like they rushed the food as well, I am pretty sure the pepperoni rolls and the calzones were under cooked and doughy. I also noticed that another table had left right after we had been seated, and it was finally bussed as we were finishing. This was one of the worst dining experience I have ever had.

Joy Negrin

I have not been to an Old Chicago scene my days at K-State! Let me start out by raving about how amazing the service is and always has been at Old Chicago. Our server was nice enough to take us to our table even though the rest of our party had not shown up yet. She explained the menu and specials and brought us our drinks and an appetizer while we waited for the rest of our party to show up. After the rest of our party arrived, she still gave them the same amount of attention that she gave to us. She helped us all choose a pizza that we could all agree on and explained all of the different sauce options to us. Having her was more like having a personal menu consultant at our table then a server. At the end of our meal she even signed us up for an awesome rewards program that we could start taking advantage of the next time we come to eat. I was very impressed with the inside of this place. They have arcade games for the kids and a awesome beer selection for the adults. This is a perfect family dining spot. They also have trivia and feature some sporting events on the tv's too. The food tasted amazingly fresh, We ended up ordering the double Deckeroni and a plate of mixed flavored wings for all of us to share. The pizza was super fresh and it wasn't long before it came to our table. The sauce actually had a slight kick to which I found pretty interesting. One large pizza was actually enough to feed about four people and we went home feeling pleasantly stuffed. I will defiantly be back to try other things. I am super excited to try their cal-zones on the next visit. I have heard so many amazing things about all of the food here and I was super happy to find out that they have one in Duluth,

jason boerjan

Huge menu of all kinds of food and a great craft beer selection. 4 adults and a 5 year old and I walked out for 85 bucks.

Timothy Petersen

Went in for a football game. Hostess was very slow but once we were seated everything was great. Good bartender, large beer selection. Food is very good. We will be back

Tim Rooney

Nice place, friendly service, but having problems with the new menu

Jennifer gorder

It is ok for food Management was how management is supposed to be

Linda Talbot

My friend and I enjoyed the lunch special of a Beer burger and an upgrade side salad. The waitress did a nice job and we liked our burgers.

Paula Odland

Great pizza and amazing servers!

Hannah Kinsey

Food is cold Didn’t get right order Super slow service But... the pizza was great!!

Estella Mangan

We love Old Chicago but this last experience at the Duluth location was a real disappointment. When you drive 3 and half hours for the view and atmosphere, the last thing you want to hear is a bartender complaining to the staff about how "irritating all the tourists " are and how she " can't wait for the season to be over."

Jamie Brueske

Awsome Awesome I Recommend this place if you Make it To Duluth Amazing Food and Environment.

Kay Christopherson

Food is exceptional without fail. Service is always friendly and attentive.

Gina Ratajek

Loved the bratwurst pizza with ale crust and also loved our waiter! Good food and good service - Win/win

David Melin

Had a couple of hours to spend waiting for my ride to pick me up. Stopped in for a pint and a pub pizza. Beer was cold, pizza was pretty tasty. My second visit here. Likely to stop again!


Great ambiance, great pizza.

Alysia Cummings

Very good food and amazing service!

Alan Krueth

Sports bar meets Chicago-style pizza joint, done right. Good service and good food, worth checking out, if you're in the area.

Mike Wetzel

A nice place to get some really good pizza. Expect to pay Chicago style prices though.

Kira Holton

Great food - tavern style pizza was delicious - but service was slow.

Joshua Spikberg

The best pizza in town! Not only pizza they have pasta and burgers and other excellent appetizers as well! There is also a huge selection of beer, we are talking a stand alone menu for all the varieties. There is so many on tap they had to make the bar larger to hold the line up! If your feeling like a challenge they have the world beer tour where you have the opportunity to drink 110 beers and get your name on their wall! What an excellent place to have a party for a large size group they have plenty of seating. If you want to fly solo or meet up with a friend the have a huge bar with adequate seating. If you have never been there before its definitely worth taking a trip down to canal park to check out out. You will not be disappointed. They also have trivia that you can play from your smart phone or you can ask for one of there trivia boxes. There is a couple of arcade games for some added entertainment. Clean facility with the best staff. Friendly and hard working and fun describes how this establishment is run!


Great deep dish pizza, and not crazy expensive. The also have a big menu with wings, hoagies, calzones and pizza. Lots of verity. Our service was kinda slow, but it was a Friday night, and we were a group of 8, so can’t really complain.

Megan Hymes

Smells like chlorine but great food!

William Groskreutz III

Great service and great food.


The server took our order and we never saw him again until we about to leave. Everyone at the table was out of water and soda for pretty much the entire time. Not once did anyone stop and ask if we needed anything after the food was delivered. Very disappointed. I have been at dive restaurants that have better service. The waiter was a blond haired kid on 2/8/19 at about 8 pm, there was no name tag, he was wearing black crocs. Shameful

Randy Baublitz

Food was great. And severs kind
