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

Went as a group-6 couples. Two were vegetarians. Five beer fanatics. Everyone found something pleasant to eat and drink. I had the Amish Chicken, it wad divine! 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

Had the Workingmans hamburger with garlic & blue cheese potato salad, OMG so good. There is no way I can eat dinner, way to full! Great ambiance, friendly staff. Interesting menu, all looked very tasty & terrific beer selection! Go check it out

Fantastic Craft Beer and Digestion experience. The beer was fresh, cold and served by the best bartenders Brit and John. The food was also delicious as the salad, pizza and burgers were grand!

If you are staying in downtown Chicago, this is definitely worth a visit. The metro blue line takes about 15 minutes to the California station and about 2 minute walk from there. There is a amazing range of really quite different beers from around the country and the region. The service was very quick and efficient considering how busy the... More

Love this place. It's pretty spacious and always busy. They have a large selection of their own beers on tap and their selection is always changing. They have a good selection of liquors, too. If you're brave (or stupid ;) you can even try a malort. I've tried a variety of food and everything has been great. It's not your... More

We were visiting our 29 year old daughter in Chicago and she took us here for lunch. This is a very popular venue after it was featured in the movie Drinking Buddies. I guess this is a happening place but you either spend your time talking extra loud with your table mates or just eating in silence. It was one... More
