Great vegetarian options!

We were amazed to find variety of vegetarian options at a brewery! The mashroom fries were very clever..they have wonderful pizza selections and of course the beer was great too. Wonderful staff as well. The place has a very vibrant buzz about it. Highly recommended!

Love their beers so had to make a visit while in Chicago. The brewpub is trendy, fun, and a neat bar atmosphere. The food was decent, had the blackened ends and fish and chips. Both came out piping hot and as described on the menu. The service was a mix of bad to good. The hostess wasn't overly friendly and... More

Let's start by listing the good: Great selection of beers, great music, friendly staff. Now the Okays: The food is decent but not fantastic And the bad: Totally inept host staff, long waits and really noisy. You be the judge I am still undecided

Wife and I went to Revolution for lunch and it did not disappoint. The beer list is extensive with more than 15-20 and the 3 flights I got all had highlights. The Rise stout was my favorite. The pretzel with cheese dip was so good - I kept the cheese sauce to dip my fries in it later that's how... More

The bartender was extremely rude. I love the beer here but they have the worst bartenders I have ever seen anywhere. I'm only here for the beer, I will not tip a dollar for the worst service ever!

We love beer. And we were really excited to try this place. Food descriptions were interesting -- we really wanted to like the steamed pei mussels and the mushroom fries. Unfortunately, the execution was poor. The mussels were bland and the fries were just breading. The beer was good. Just good. Nothing special. We had the Anti-hero IPA, Eugene Porter... More

A friend and I finally made it here last Saturday night. What an awesome place! Fun, loud and 16 beers on tap! The wait for a table was 1 hour, but we were able to grab 2 seats at the bar where we ate. Friendly service and people just hanging out having a rockin' good time. I ordered the shrimp... More

I have been there a number of times with my son. It is always busy! Families eat early and transitions to the young adult crowd. One of the things I like about Chicago is the fact storefront windows are open on a nice day in restaurants. I usually have the salmon when I am there. Huge beer selection. It is... More
