I've been to this location at least 20 times. Food quality has been, on the whole, excellent for a chain restaurant. I have had a few minor problems, and they have always made a large effort to fix the problems at their own expense. The pizza isn't very healthy, but it is delicious. They have some of the best appetizers of any place I've been to.

The beer quality and selection is awesome. The servers generally know what they have and will tell you about any specials or discounts available. Their claim to fame is that theyhave 110 beers available, many of which are on tap. Their draft beers always taste delicious and they have a great selection.

I also get free $5 vouchers from them quite often for being a World Beer Tour card holder. They also periodically give me free shirts and other items for drinking beer. On the whole it's my favorite place to go out.
**********
I have edited my review because we've stopped going here as much, the service has taken a turn for the worse. The biggest problem is that they have had issues with order accuracy, and also take forever to get the check to the table. They really have room to improve their service.

Stopped in here on a weekday afternoon about 6PM and it was pretty slow. Now of the 3 Old C's in Co Springs this one was my second favorite. Mainly because the service was good, was not overly crowded and it was next to the town center. The beers were were right on par with the other Old C's locations in town. Lots Boulder, Bristol and Breckenridge in bottle and on tap. However, they did have a few bottles of Avery. While the selection was good there was nothing on the craft I had not had previously and nothing rare or sought after. Food was good as usual, I ordered my standard calzone. Would stop in again.
