This is one of the best places to go in town if you like a wide selection of brews. As with any Old Chicago I believe there is always about 100+ to choose from. Beers range from regular macros like Miller and Budweiser to some of the better micros such as Odell and Surly. The selection is a little different from location to location and changes slightly from time to time so it's always good to check back once in a while. Always nice to be able to check in and grab a Furious on tap or share a 750 of Nastradamus. The place in general is nice and clean with a decent selection of Italian/American food. A couple dart boards, couple pool tables, couple arcade games, shuffleboard and scattered flat screens provide the entertainment. Bar area is 21+ so no worries about being bothered by kids running around. Pool table area is in a corner surrounded by large windows which is always a plus for me because I enjoy a nice amount of daylight spilling in when I'm able to make it to the place early enough. Bartenders are usually pretty friendly and the service is most of the time pretty good. Better if you go to get your beers yourself most of the time but that's never been a big problem for me. Anyway it's not too bad a place to hang out and spend a few dollars. If you happen by the city or just live here, check it out from time to time.

Old Chicago in Sioux Falls is located in the front parking lot near the Empire Mall. If you've found the mall, you've found this Old Chicago.

It's nice to see Sioux Falls receive a Old Chicago, a franchise that specializes in pizza and pasta, and boasts over 110 beers at their locations.

This Chicago has a great feel on the inside. The bar are is co-located with the restaurant, and was built where the taps and beer coolers are visible from most locations of the establishment. The restaurant area is courted off into four or five cozy areas, each booth and table is very spacious. The scene here has a "chain like feel", coupled with that sports bar / restaurant atmosphere.

The beers.

The beer list is currently at 110, and while I did not count or ask, I did notice a good two dozen or so on tap, with numerous coolers stocked with bottles directly behind and on side of the bar area. All true beer lovers need to at least walk to the bar area to take in the views of the selection.

The selection of beers.

This Old Chicago boasts a pretty good selection. You can visit the web site for the main list of brews, but to highlight a few we will mention Summit Pale and the IPA, Goose Island with three or four varieties, Moose Drool Brown (a definite pick), Schell and James Page. Nice to know that they also carry (in bottles) Anchor Steam, Celebrator, Labatt Blue, and Fat Tire, along with numerous others.

The food.

Very nice and reasonably priced. My family and I consumed a medium Chicago style pizza, which filled our bellies nicely. The soups and salads are also worth mentioning. Families are more than welcome.

Good to see Sioux Falls on the map with this establishment. Well worth the visit and your time! Enjoy.

I’ve been to multiple Old Chicago’s before and have always enjoyed going there. Located right off the highway and next to a mall, it is very easy to fine. Inside there are plenty of tv’s, a big bar, a sit down area and a casino in the back.

Old Chicago’s advertises 110 beers available. So they did have a good variety from Boulder, Boulevard, Goose Island, Big Sky, Leinie’s, Rouge, Schell. They always have five beers on special as well

The staff was ok. Really it was mostly kids and they didn’t have a clue really about the difference between a macro or micro.

The food is always good. I would suggest to try the Italian Nachos…they are a must have. The pizza’s are good. Really this is one of the reasons there are so many Old Chicago’s out there.

I use to live in the South where there were no Old Chicago’s around and I greatly missed them. So when I moved to South Dakota, thank you very much for having an Old Chicci’s in Sioux Falls.

Old Chicago is a relatively new player in the Sioux Falls beer scene. I’d say it is a welcomed addition. This is a freestanding building (actually there is a casino attached but where in South Dakota is there not a casino?). It is next to the Empire Mall, easy to reach from I-29. Plenty of parking.

Inside is similar to almost all the Old Chicago’s I’ve been too. This one seemed to have less “stuff” on the walls, less red paint, and more of a restaurant feel than a bar. That’s cool. The bar is smallish and centered in the building. Plenty of TVs. Pool tables and dartboards as well.

As with all OC they advertise 110 beers, this one didn’t seem to have that many but I didn’t count. Around 20 are on-tap. They offer brews typical for the area: Moose Drool, Scapegoat, Summit Pale Ale & IPA, Goose Island Brown Ale & Pale Ale, Yellowstone Stout, Schell Dark Lager & Pils, Rogue Dead Guy Ale, James Page Amber & Brown, Duvel, and the like.

Same food, good Italian-American, pub-grub stuff… I still dig their nachos! Our waiter was very nice. I’d go back.
