I'd enjoyed several of Revolution's beers over the years, so a visit seemed like a good idea when we wound up staying in the neighborhood on a recent trip to Chicago. Lots of temptations on the menu, including standard pub fare like burgers and fish & chips. Do start with the Bacon Fat Popcorn, truly unique. I was considering the... More

I went here at lunchtime on a Monday, but even so it was filling up fast by the time I left. There are several beers to choose from, all Revolution originals, and some of which are only available at this location. I went for several samples in order to try as many as possible. There's something for everyone from light,... More

This bar is really alive, even on a Thursday night! The beers are all their own, and a great selection of great brews. Their food was awesome, we split plate the burger and it was more than enough for us. Loved sitting at the bar, it's beautiful!

At this brewpub you can sip on iconic brews while indulging in "greasy" decadent fare that will make you glad that you are walking some of the calories off on the hike to Wrigley later. Of course, one can't realistically walk to the ballpark from Revolution, but you get my point. My favorite thing about Revolution was that the food... More

Great place, awesome selection of beers obviously. Bartenders were super attentive and friendly. Coolest spot in the area. I didn't even have a beard and still felt at home! Love this joint! Had the pesto chicken sandwich, bartender suggested I eat over my fries so the juice would run down and drizzle over them. Great tip! Cheers!!

Firstly this venue is always packed even at 12.30 in the afternoon when we went and there were no tables. However its a great craft beer venue and this was our second visit of 2016. As well as trying various beers, we also had an appetiser of fried catfish which was superb and went very well with beers. The main... More

I like the space and its always busy. The large selection of beers they brew makes it fun to go to every once and awhile. for a brew pub the food is pretty good too. Service seems to be the same every time I go and its not great. Still doesn't stop me from enjoying the beer.

It seems to be always very busy. Last time it was Tuesday (2013) we visited and now Sunday (2016) afternoon. After a good 45 min wait got a good table which was in a bit quieter place. There is no quiet place in this brewpub. The food was really tasty and so were the beers. All beers also available as... More

I went to the taproom with my son. The beer menu lists they current brews and are available for sampling. I am not a beer drinker, but had the Rev radler. I enjoyed it and wish I could get it where I live.
