I wouldn't normally review a franchise restaurant here, but I saw this place had one review so...what the hell. My wife, daughter, and I went here after I returned from Oskar Blues Tasty Weasel Tap Room. Most folks know what Old Chicago is - a variety franchise with emphasis on Italian fare. We saw that this place was busy almost every night and it was on our way so we decided to eat here after a day in Rocky Mountain National Park. The food here is very good. Get the artichoke dip appetizer - it's one of the best I've ever had. I had a pizza and my wife and daughter had chicken fettuccine alfredo. All were very good. They offer more beer than what I thought, but most are common. This one has some really ones because of its location. I had just had some biggies at the Tasty Weasel, so the waitress asked if I liked fruit beers. What? I didn't see that coming. She knew beer very well! She suggested Dry Dock Apricot Pale Ale. I was hesitant, but went for it. That beer was so good I bought a 6pk down the street the next day. Our appetizer was slow to get out so they comped it. My pizza was a larger size than I ordered, so I got it for a small price. The manager apologized, but it wasn't a big deal. I left the girl a huge tip anyway. Very enjoyable.

This really is a great place!

Plenty of seating. Mostly made up of bench seating in the first part of the place. The bar area also has bench seating, along with small tables and a nice size bar.

The bar has about 20 beers on tap, with a good selection. With 110 beers in all, you can drink all night long and for days and weeks without having the same beer twice. Also they serve mixed drinks, coffee drinks, samples, and half and half beer drinks.

Along with great beer, and lots of, they have the world beer tour. Which you are givin a card, and all the beers you drink are put onto the card. After so many beers you get prizes. And after completing the tour, 110 beers, you get your name on a tiny piece of metal and it goes on the wall of foam. After 10 tours you get a stein with your name engraved on it. Their web site is a great way to track your tour.

The service was great! They seemed proud to work there. Helpful, nice, know a lot about beer. And he asked me if I wanted to keep the bottles, which I did!

Food is wonderful! Pasta and pizza. Calzones are great. They had a special when I was there, we got str fry pizza for free, which was great. Noodles on pizza is strange, but was very good.

I'm going back for sure! I need to finish my beer tour! It is a chain, so stop by one in your area!
