I've eaten here many times with no issues. They've got a decent menu, with fantastic ambiance. We ate there last night for the last time. We ordered the chicken fingers for my three year old and one of them was literally raw on the inside. Since they're breaded, you can't tell until it's bitten into. I don't know how much... More

Great atmosphere, great beer selection, and this trip awesome bartender, Ashley! So this trip, had the meatloaf and it was outstanding. This place is cool because most of their beers are local to Indiana. Had a great Valpro beer this time and it did not disappoint. Ashely was great and I wish her the best with her new baby Anna!...

We just moved to Valparaiso and we're checking out the local places. The Industrial Revolution is a local favorite. Near the university. The food was good, I tried the sliders three different kinds. Others did some burger, fried pickles and the potato soup. All were tasty. Service was OK but not a strong point. We would rate it a 3.5... More

Loved the decor, but not the place. We went on a Friday night when there was a short wait, and it was packed. Burgers were real good, as was the service. But it was just too chaotic and loud. Maybe it was the bus boys kicking open the kitchen door, or dropping a glass. But it was just so noisy.... More

A little slice of history. Solid menu. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable but BUSY. Decor inside is brick, industrial. Every turn had a quote or fact of history. My husband had the slider, trio special featuring pot roast, pulled pork and burger sliders. Decent flavors. I had the Pot Roast Mac n Cheese - very rich and filling.... More

Everything about this place is patriotic and reminiscent of an era. We loved this place. The building itself is unique and inside is industrial, with American history slathered all over it! Every dish comes with a little flag stuck in it, and the cheesecake, which is made in house is even red white and blue! (and delicious!) It is a... More

Great and relaxing environment for any meal. Friendly staff and nice variety of food to chose from which everything looked good to eat. Presentation of food was superb and it tasted just as good.
