The atmosphere at Old Chicago is always fun. Service is usually very good in the bar, yet, unfortunately, average in the restuarant section. As a beer tour member, I usually sit in the bar, so my review will be based on that section. The servers always seem to enjoy their job. If you go on a regular occasion, they will learn your name and treat you like a friend. I personally think that's the best thing the restaurant has to offer. The food is very good, but the reasons that keep everyone coming back are the atmosphere, service and of course the beer tour. With 110 + beers in the store at any given time, there is never a problem finding a unique brew to sample. Every month or two Old Chicago holds a "mini tour" which is a tour of 8-10 beers. The reward for drinking all of these beers is a t-shirt or baseball cap. This keeps things interesting because the beers they feature on the mini tours are often beers that are normally not on the regular list. All in all, Old Chicago is an excellent place to go for drinks and dinner. Make sure you sign up for the beer tour!

PROS: Food, beer, atmosphere, prizes, happy hour specials
CONS: restaurant section service, price of some beer

A few years ago a new pizza restaurant began setting up in the old building that used to be Shakey's Buffett. I decided I would give them a try. Instantly I realized they have great pizza. As we were paying our bill our waiter asked if we wanted to join the World Beer Tour ... I could never see myself drinking 110 beers in 1 restaurant, but hey you get a snazzy membership card so I said figured 'why not'. Now Im on my 3rd tour (have drank around 260 beers at Old Chicago). This place has the best selection of beer I have ever seen, and their food is still awsome. Not even just the pizza, they have Excelent burgers, calazones, apatizers, etc. I drive 20 minutes several times a week to go here. Deffinatly check it out.

PROS: Great Food, Huge Beer Selection, Fun environment, prizes!, Happy Hour
CONS: Not the cheapest place in town

This is the best selection of beers I have ever seen. I have been to other resturants that have over 100 different types of beer but the types they carry aren't as unique. Very wide variety of lagers, ales and even some honey beers that are really good. I love their Chicago style pizza and the burgers are great! I love it because it is also a Chicago Cubs bar and of course on Saturdays in the fall it is packed with Hawkeye Fans. My kind of place! Make sure if you are in Coralville to give this place a try.

PROS: Types of Beer, Pizza (Chiacago Style)
CONS: Not open late enough
