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

We got there around 1 on a Sunday. Parking was easier than some of the places in Chicago, because it was Sunday and bank was closed. Although, we did have to wait. I had the Breakfastman Burger... can totally share. Yummy pretzels, too.

Had a delicious meal at Revolution with some friends. They also have a large selection of beer to choose from. Service was friendly and helpful. The booths are a bit tight for room. We couldn't be given a table until our whole party had turned up, but that's understandable for somewhere as busy as here.

The service was really good. I had a Caesar salad and a side of mashed potatoes and my friends had a Hombre Burger and the hash - everything was wonderful. I tried two beers - Bottom Up Wit and Cross of Gold - both were good, the Cross of Gold was probably the best beer I've ever had - just... More

Visited Chicago in June 2014 and are native hosts took us to Revolution. We did not have to wait long to be seated and the beer was really good. I particularly enjoyed the Coup D'Etat. I would recommend this to any visitor who like to try new beer.

Try a Chicago burger was on our bucket list. It was lunchtime on our last day in Chicago as we whiled away the time before check-in. Revolution Brewing's restaurant, close to Logan Square in the heart of student-ville, was in easy walking distance and recommended by our hosts. The bar is part brewery, part restaurant with two floors full of... More

Very busy on a Thursday night. In a trendy area but one of only a few establishments on this section of the street. Bacon Fat popcorn is an extreme delicacy if you are a popcorn fan!

It's been busy every time I've gone but I am able to get a table in under 30 minutes. The beers are good and the food is fabulous. It's too hard to pick! The mashed potatoes are to die for. The Ruben was very tasty but the bread should have been toasted more. The flank steak was cooked to perfection... More
