The yes on recommend Old Chicago Pizza should be "depends". I have been to Old Chicago Pizza - Presidio numerous times and have always enjoyed the food but have noticed that service does not seem to by a high priority. This visit was the least positive visit of the numerous times I have been. The negative experience started upon our arrival. We requested a table on the south side of the restaurant to enjoy the sunshine. We were told the waiter had enough tables and were seated in the middle of the restaurant adjacent to the bar. We ordered two entree salads and a pizza. The wait for our food was about average. When the food was delivered one of the guests tasted the salad dressing (It had been requested to have it on the side and it was.) and was not fond of it was sweeter than she desired and asked for a balsamic vinegar instead. The waiter never came back with the dressing. After waiting for 15 minutes we went and found the waiter. A couple minutes later it was delivered. As the dinner progressed the temperature in the restaurant cooled to the point that we were uncomfortable. The garage door was open at the bar and there was enough of a breeze that as the evening cooled off it carried cool air in. We asked the server if the door could be closed. The server said she would ask the bartender. The door was not closed and there was no feedback on our request. I wrote a note on our bill along with my name and number and hoped to hear from management the next day. I did not hear from anyone.

Second time in a row, service not good. Food took a long time, wife's salad never came out, finally cancelled it. Great beer selections. But had to flag server down to get second rounds. Come on OC, y'all better that this.

The beers here are often a bit sketchy. Most times there are several taps that are "Tapped out". Which I could understand, but on a Friday evening? Taps should be full for a weekend I would think. Service is. Usually good. Tonight it was a bit off. Place is always noisy.

I have come here for lunch & dinner many times. The food is great when it’s not busy. They struggle at all levels on Friday & Saturday nights. I came on a Friday. I used open table to cut the wait time. I made a request for a booth & it didn’t work, drinks and food took a long time, pizza was dry and our server was spreading too thin, we asked for extra napkins that come at the end of dinner.

We came from Boise 4 years ago where we have 2 of these. Our favorite restaurant! The Italian nachos and pepperoni rolls are our all time favorite! We booked this not knowing it was a soft opening. When we sat down to the minimized menu I was so sad that our Italian nachos were not offered. The waiters were all great. When we told the waiter we had been waiting for this to open just for my nachos he said not to worry and got me the nachos. I could not believe how great the managers and everyone were! Even with the limited menu for those 2 days our family of 4 still walked away full and amazed with the quality of the food! Awesome job! We often times will get the nachos and rolls and that will fill up all of us and we still enjoy their beer and drink menu. They have something for everyone! We will be back over and over again!

Stan was a great waiter. We were there for the training opening, and he was so far ahead of anyone else. He had a great personality and treated my family well. We all enjoyed his humor and he became a part of our table. The trainers were great as well.

I really enjoyed the food offered. Especially, the starters which was a great way to share items among our group. The staff was very knowledgeable about the different menu items. I also enjoyed the variety of beer options. I think the tasters were a great way for groups to try each other's beer without drinking from the same glass. The different flight options were great too. I like the local breweries option. I will definetly be returning.

We were not very pleased with the limited menu selection for this specific occasion. We thought coming in that the full menu would be offered, we ended up ordering food we typically would never order. I understand the reasoning but I wish it would have been known prior. As far as the restaurant and staff, it was all great. I think this location will work out great!

This was a pre-opening event at Old Chicago Pizza. Very good pizza and the crust was outstanding. I am not a fan of andouille sausage, however, the flavors on the Meat Me melded so well together that I found the pizza enjoyable. Old Chicago offers three sizes of thick Chicago crust pie; individual, medium and large, and two sizes of thin "Ale" crust: individual and large. I had the individual Chicago style and it was plenty. Already recommended this restaurant to a friend. Several of the staff were taken with my 3 year old grand son and took the time to stop by and talk to talk to him and get a high five or two.

This place is awesome! The food tastes great and there's a wonderful selection. If you like beer, you're going to be in heaven. For me, I loved the pomegranate sparkles and strawberry lemonade. There are so many items on the menu that I wanted to try, I'm definitely going back!

I am really excited to explore the craft beer list. OC is the only place around that has many local breweries on tap.

The food, service & ambiance of Old Chicago was awesome. The atmosphere was very relaxed and I didn't feel as though I needed to rush through my meal even though the restaurant was busy. I would definitely recommend it and will be going again soon!

Nice Bar and an attractive restaurant. The service was wonderful. Everyone was attentive and pleasant. The food left something to be desired. I am sure that it will get better as they did just open.

I went for the opening during lunch with my two small children. The kids got pizza and fresh fruit, and I had a beer burger and we all shared some sausage onion rolls. Everything was delicious! My only complaint is that the burger came out , five minutes later the kids' pizza, and two minutes after that the sausage rolls. Im sure they will get the timing sorted out soon! I will be going back with my husband for a date night so we can choose from the 30+ beers on tap and eat more awesome food!
