Great location, very good food and service. We've been before and we'll go again. Lots of different really good choices for different kinds of eaters too.
Great brunch, food was super good and bloody Mary’s were great! Not bottomless.
Sat at the bar, Covid friendly, good wait staff
Great afternoon, good food and helpful service....
Good happy hour deals. Mediocre service
Date night. Went to play Music Bingo!
great service, server was very attentive in all the right ways not overly pushy or annoying. Great place watch a game, good food and drinks.
Stopped in for a light meal & a beer. Service was great & food was good. Tables amply spaced. Loads of giant screen TVs. Great place to drink, dine & watch sports. Very Covid safe!
We love this place! Always good beer selection, and awesome food. So sad that is was so empty.
I was very satisfied with the service. Food is amazing drinks are reasonably priced. The manager is noticeably active in the restaurant. I will be visiting again especially on Football Sundays #BearDown
Came for the Bears game. Great wings, lots of TVs with all the NFL games on, cool vibe, slowish table service but we weren’t in a hurry so it was fine
No better place in Chicago for a football Sunday! Staff is always great, food and drinks are awesome outstanding TV setup, never overcrowded
Friendly service, good food. Loved the ambiance. Prices for food and drinks were also reasonable.
Always great customer service. They never disappoint.
The food was just really really not good and I was super disappointed. Felt like it was microwaved cafeteria food served on a nice plate. Will not be back for dinner.
Popcorn chicken was good
Brunch for 4. Great job being in compliance with CDC guidelines. Team was friendly and helpful. Food was also delicious. Thank you!!
Great reopen! Social distancing and kept the patio sanitized. As always the food was delicious.
Location, food and service were great but it was just too loud. We had a 5:45 dinner reservation and the music was at the level it should be in a club. We had to shout in order to have a conversation.
Great experience. Food was great. Just disappointed our waiter forgot the birthday desserts we ordered at the start of the meal. Disappointing for our guest who was celebrating a bday but we could not wait longer as we were heading to an event. Noisy - some of our group commented on this - but expected in my opinion.
Hi there, thanks for visiting Old Town Pour House! We look forward to seeing you again soon! - Staley
Nice experience, food, and service. My wife and I were in town for a few days and we’re going to a comedy show nearby and we’re recommended to Old Town Pour House by Zanie’s.
It was a nice combo.
Lunch time - too loud for a business meeting I would expect loud music during the evening hours, will choose a different location next time.
The overall ambiance of the restaurant was very fun and upbeat. The food was average, fine for the price. Would recommend to go back again for a good selection of beers and to watch a game, not so much for the food.
Some good food options for Old Town if you're wanting to grab a bite before hitting the town -- the filet mignon sliders were awesome. Service was a bit slower, but that's to be expected for a Saturday night.
We stopped here before attending a show at Second City (Grinning from Fear to Fear: that was 5 stars, by the way). It was basically a high-scale sports bar. Food and service was very good.
Found the Old Pour House via reviews and the food, service, and ambiance did not disappoint! I enjoyed it enough to head there again for a second time the same week... and the experience was equally enjoyable and the food as good.
Hi Joseph, I'm glad you enjoyed your experience at Old Town Pour House! We look forward to seeing you again soon! - Staley
The food was excellent but, the noise level was unbearable. The volume was too loud and the base vibes gave me bad sensation on my ear drums. We had hoped to have a conversation with our friends but that was impossible. Just a shouting event. We left ASAP for another place to relax over cocktails. Not returning, or going to any of the Bottleneck businesses. You should rethink the noise levels.

Enjoyed the service and ambiance. I’m not a beer drinker but my buddy liked what he chose and the selections. They had a good wine list too. We only had an appetizer, chicken wings, which were very tasty.
Hi Karen, I'm glad you enjoyed visiting Old Town Pour House! Come back again soon :) - Staley
1/2 price apps at happy hour are great and appreciate the simplicity of $2 off any drink during happy hour. Food is always delicious.
Great to grab some food and a couple beers during the NCAA games. Always happy with the food and despite it being busy the server (Chad) was in a great mood and did his best to accommodate despite the crowd and ultimate wait on our order. Glad I made reservations because it fills up quickly! We’ll be back!
Hi Lyndsay, I'm so glad you had a nice time at Old Town Pour House! I'll pass your compliment on to Chad, he'll be happy to hear it! Come back again soon! :) - Staley
We had a very good experience at this classic Chicago restaurant. We were in hurry to get to Second City for a performance and they were very accommodating.
Service was terrible. Noise level very high even though there were very few people there. I had the fish tacos and my daughter had the fish and chips. Both of us think the fish had turned. Neither felt well that night. Drinks were all ice and very little of anything else. Very poor value for the menu

Amazing bar. The service is awesome. My spouse had some difficulty’s with his order,the staff addressed it quickly and professionally.
Service was okay, water always got refilled but seemed to take a little long for our food. More than 30 min for a wrap and salad. Food is definitely overpriced for how much (or little) you get
Service was unusually slow, which is sad considering we were one of only three tables occupied over the lunch hour. Food came out lukewarm, and had clearly been sitting for a while given the cheese on my flatbread pizza had cooled and solidified. OTPH is a great venue, in an unbeatable neighborhood location. Unfortunately there's a reason why tables are always readily available.
Libby was amazing! Loved her jokes and quick wit!
