My favorite place in Chicago. Can get crowded, but this has gotten better since they completed the upstairs. Nice selection of beer, including usually 8+ of their own drafts. Great food.

Visited on the way to the Furthur show. Itís a pleasant place in the mid-afternoon. Good staff--knew their stuff. A good selection of their beers on tap and a solid selection of other bottles. Food was good--several veggie items Iíd go back for: tempeh reuben, tofu barbeque.

Had a great feel and rather large center bar. Sampled all their house pours at $2 a piece. Enjoyed most of their beers and would like to go back again.

Nice atmosphere - seems they used their space inefficiently because despite being a very large space, itís hard to get a table on a friday or saturday. That being said, they have a very large island-shaped bar in the center with some very nice socialist propaganda artwork. Being a smaller brewpub that also changes styles often, sometimes they donít have much that I like on tap at the time. Service can be slow, again probably because of the inefficient layout, but is friendly. Menu is a bit limited but everything Iíve had has been good.

Great beers on tap including growlers. Food was excellent and the staff was in the know. I enjoy the bar over tables as they can become a bit crowded.

A very welcome addition to the cityís brewpub scene. For too long, Goose Island has been the only game in town, save some irrelevant bit players that have come and gone (anyone remember Hopcats or Brewing Company #9? Youíll be forgiven if the answer is "no.") plus that goddamn chain place in River North that doesnít really count. Revolutionís beer is rock-solid, and I predict they will be in it for the long haul. The interior is tasteful and well-done despite having many hallmarks of a douchebag hangout (lots of wood paneling, exposed brick walls, etc.) The food is excellent -- itís a little pricey for pub fare but you get what you pay for in terms of quality. The vaguely Marxist schtik is kinda corny though, and I certainly hope itís done tongue-in-cheek lest nobody there had even considered the irony of charging 11 bucks for something called a "Workingman burger" or five to six bucks for a beer. And speaking of beer, as of now they only have 5 of their own online, but it looks like they have room for another 7 or 8 more. Guest beers are also available.

Up to 16 Revolution brews on tap. Ample bottle selection as well. $2 samples available. Really good gastro pub food. Extremely crowded on prepared to wait 45 - an hour for a table during peak times.

This place has great beer! Iím a vegetarian and still can find some solid food choices. Not so crowded since they opened their upstairs space. Did I mention that they have great beer?! Iím a homer, but I LOVE this place.

Revolution has been hit-and-miss for me on the beer scene. Iíve been five or six times now. About every other beer I get here is excellent. The other half, not so much. The food, however, has consistently been top notch. Burgers that rival the best in Chicago. Service, too, has been spotty. Seems like when Iím at a table service is good, but when at the bar I go unnoticed.

Revolution has become one of the best brewpubs to visit in Chicago. Above average food, great guest taps and bottle list, and Revolutionís own beers are nothing to scoff at. I really enjoy the decor inside the place, with a beautiful bar in the center of the brewpub. Prices on beer are more than fair, with the food being decently priced for the quality (I have eaten here many times, and when the food is on, it is great, but the kitchen is a bit inconsistent). The bartenders and servers are always very polite and do their jobs well. Overall, if you are headed to Chicago, Revolution has become a must-visit.
