Came here with my bestie that lives in the area. She loves this place & comes quite often. Service was good. The gentleman that took care of us was nice and checked on us to make sure we were ok. We started with the sweet potato cakes appetizer per the server's recommendation, which was only ok. I could have done... More

We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of food and the atmosphere of the pub. There was a significant wait, but the hostess gave us a time estimate asking that we check in after we returned. We took a walk through the neighbourhood and were seated a bit before her estimated time. Normally I find a wait this long (1h30m)... More

I like just about every beer that they make. The food is also very good. Goose Island may have started the Chicago microbrew scene but Revolution perfected it.

To celebrate the first day of autumn we headed to Revolution to try the food so highly recommended and sip a favorite brew. Wow Wow Wow!!! Honestly this is one of the best brewpubs we have ever been to…Danielle, our server was remarkable….the house made rillette reminded us of a trip to Paris, the roasted beet salad with habanero vinaigrette...

I guess I'll be the lone decenter of this place...for now anyway. I came here for happy hour drinks. Upon doing so, I was told that I couldn't sit at a table, even a tall cocktail, unless I was ordering food. The place wasn't even remotely busy either; yet, I still had to sit on a hard, wooden bench with... More

We had read good things about this brewery. We enjoyed the beer we selected and the food. The menu was varied and the service was efficient. At 1:30 p.m. on a Saturday the wait for a table was not too bad. There was no area to wait for the table, however. It was a busy bar!

One of the burgers I have had in any city. Right on-par with Au Chaval in Chicago. Great selection of beers here and good atmosphere - worth the trip.

Coming from out of town I was looking forward to eating at revolution.. After putting our name in for four people we were told an hour. When we checked on the table an hour and a half leader, we were told that our table was next. That statement seemed to ring in my ears for nearly 30 more minutes. We... More

Hubby had the salmon and it was very good. Vegetarian options included a veggie burger and pizza. Everyone loved their food! My only complaint is the NOISE! We were in town (two sets... More
