On the south side of town in some of the new developments. Typical Old Chicago decor. Fairly large bar area. The beer selection is pretty good. Of course, there are lots of Colorado selections. Nothing spectacular, but lots of good stuff.

Exceptional service at this location. The bartenders asked for my name, remembered it, and were very helpful in choosing beers. They politely informed me if I selected a beer that wasn't on the happy hour special - that's just... unbelievable. I also had a chance to meet Brooks, the manager, whom I happened to sit next to at the bar. There's such a good vibe here.

This Old Chicago had a great selection of local craft beer, including some from the new brewery in the area called Grimm. Their happy hour had good deals, and it was obvious that this was a locals' favorite. It was hard to find a seat in the bar.

This will be a must stop on my return visits to Fort Collins.

Despite the fact that Old C's is a corporate chain, I really dig this place. Sports sports and more sports, or course, but with a kickass tap selection, and if that ain't enough, a huge bottled beer fridge with EVERYTHING. I actually bought a Dogfish Head brew last time I was there; how cool is that?! Best beer selection at a bar, hands down. The bartenders are rockin, especially the big guy with the beard who looks exactly like a buddy of mine; they know their beers, they can give knowledgeable recommendations if their selection overwhelms you and are happy to shoot the shit if you're at the bar and it's slow. This place gets hoppin' after ten or on the weekends, so get there early and claim a seat at the bar; primo drinking real estate. A college place, be ready for drunken morons later on in the night.

This Old C's was easy to find as it is near a theater and it is a good way to pass time have a drink while waiting for that movie to open up for seating. Bar sitting is on the left when entering into the building. The sitdown seating is on the right. Just as any other Old C's it has the typical college kids working. Sat down in the sitdown area to enjoy the company. Had nachos and a pizza. The nachos weren't anything special. However the Chicago 7 pizza changing the mushrooms out for pineapple was excellent. The beer selection here is grand amount as to be expected. However there were some selections in thier world tour section that seemed out of time. A fall special beer in Jan? Otherwise a great time there!W

In certain circles this is known as the "other" Old C's in Fort Collins. The other being the old town location. Very easy to find near the corner of Harmony and Timberline near the movie theater. Just don't run the light there, dang camera's will get you. Once inside very similar to any other Old C's. There is a good sized bar that can get pretty crowded fast on nights and weekends. There is a good sized dinning area opposite the bar and a pretty small outside seating area.

The food is typical Old C's, pizza, Italian and some burgers. The staff can be hit or miss. For me it is typically miss. Most are not familiar with beer, style and anything beyond what are the specials. The selection is good. Being in CO and having access to a good line up helps. They almost always have a seasonal New Belgium, Odells and another CO beer (Great Divide, Avery, Lefthand, Bolder etc). I have even seen Stone RIS on special too. So good selection but nothing you can't get at a liquor store. Overall nothing fantastic but it is a chain so hey.
