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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

This has been one of my favorite places in chicago since they opened. Its in logan square and really fits the area well but is more than accessible for everyone.
Generally its their beers on tap, but they always do a good job of having good "guest" taps as well. While some of the beer can be variable, their range of offerings is great and you are able to try out as much as you want with their sample pours.
The food across the board is very good. Things that standout though are their workingmanís burger, mussels, pizzas, and their polenta fries.
the bartenders are generally easy to get a beer from. It does get packed at nights, but that is just expected and they do a good job even when it is slammed.
Itís the whole package that keeps me coming back and keeps me happy every time.

This place was rocking at 10am to midnight. Beer was very impressive and food was phenomenal. A very happy and lively ambiance with terrific waitstaff. If I lived in Chicago Iíd be a regular here.

Large oval central bar with tables around the periphery, kitchen and brewery towards the back. High ceilings. Very loud at times which seems to be the standard for many brewpubs. Crowd eclectic but tending toward the twenty-somethings. Nice selection of beers including lighter and more traditional styles as well as higher ABV and barrel-aged. Service quick and friendly. I had the Reuben with fries that was very good. Not cheap and they donít give you much of the barrel-aged for what you pay but value is probably on a par with other brewpubs in Chicago.
