I went to the Old Chicago location in Minnetonka yesterday. I ordered 2 different beers and a plate of wings. My buddy also had 2 beers and a plate of chicken fingers. Both of my beers were "funky" from dirty tap ines, and my buddy commented his beer seemed sour. It's too bad, because they have a very good beer selection, 32 taps and something like 100 bottled offerings. Our food was good, the atmosphere and the service were both good as well. But when you go to a place for the beer, you really want the tap lines to be clean. Not sure I'd go back to drink beer, even though my total score is pretty good. if I do go back, I'm apt to go with bottled selections.

I went to the Old Chicago in Apple Valley Minnesota... Actually I am there quite often since my girlfriend works there. I find the atmosphere to be nice and very warming. Most of the servers are very friendly and knowledgable when it comes to the different beers.
Old Chicago has a great selection of beers from all over the world and have a great program called the World Beer Tour. The WBT is really kinda fun since you get free stuff on youre way to drinkning all the beers on the menu.

The Cons: The Beer is a bit pricey and the bar is usually full on a weekend night. You can only add four beers to your Wourld Beer Tour card per night. Other than that the place it alright.

I went to the Apple Valley location. Pretty big place, we sat in a corner, near the bar. Like all Old Chicago's they have their 'frequent buyer card", the World Beer Tour, which gives you cheap prizes for spending 100s of dollars on beer that they double or triple the price on. A lot of the stuff they have is bottled, and they don't tell you which ones are which. I did have the Bells, Boulevard, and sampled the samuel smith's and Capitol winter brews. They do have prety good food, calzones and salads are very good there.The service there is pretty fast, but they have little knowledge on the beer. I might go back, maybe not.

This place does have a pretty nice selection of beers, i got a celebrator, bell's amber, paulaner hefe, full sail amber and goose island oatmeal stout. There were a number of other tasty ones i was eying but this night was getting expensive. I also had some mozz sticks which were good. The problem i have with this place was that our service was terrible. We asked our waitress to turn the twins on (there was some other game on), and she said she would but it took her about 20 mins to get the remote. She was also very slow on bringing the next round of drinks for all of us, and it wasnt that crowded on this night. I asked her for a glass to go with my beer, she didnt bring me one until i ordered the celebrator (my last beer) and reminded her that i WOULD be needing a glass for this one.

So, i would say its not a terrible place to go, but not somewhere im looking forward to going back to.

Downtown Minneapolis just a block from the Target Center. Big restaurant upstairs, with decent american foods, sandwiches, salads, and of course their far out yummy pizza and pasta entrees.
Then there's the basement, what a great hangout, some pool tables available and are the big thing. Use to cut out early from work on Fridays around 3:15 and grab a pool table and bar table and play pool all night drinking all sorts of different beers. Beer on tap is alot of macro, but also some micros that change constantly which are mostly seasonal changes with Summit, Red Hook, and Sam Adams. The Old Chicago in Roseville had Moose Drool on tap for awhile, that was cool. Downtown can get incredibly busy before Target Center events, but if you keep your hat on, it emptys out and even some pool tables open up. Bottled beer has some pretty decent choices, some good Micro choices, some usual foreign imports, but the american brews are heavily recognized. They have this little around the world club where you get a card that keeps track of the different brews you've tried. It didn't take me long to get the 110 they claim to have, I went there every Friday for about a year, unfortunately you have to have Bud, Miller, and the like to get a full card. Overall they could have more on tap but most of the bottled brews make up for it.

Also have very good happy hour appetizer deals. So get your pool playing self together and stop by. Mid afternoons are the best if your looking to play, otherwise tables can have up to an hour or more wait.
