Finally made it over to Rev for fathers day 2010. It's about a hour from my house, but wasn't very hard to get to. Parking was also resonable as we parked on the same side of the street only a few hundred of feet away. As we made our way in it didn't seem to busy but still waited about fifteen minutes or so. As we waited we went to use the restroom and I was very surprised to see a family bathroom in a brewery. I was very happy to see that this place is family/kid friendly. The place looks great and very moderate. The only thing that bummed me out was before we sat down to eat I was gona order a beer. I sat my two year old son on the bar stool who had a white sox shirt on and the bar tender gave me a smug look. There lucky I drove a hour away or I would have walked out. We did sit down and I was informed that the first beer was on the house so I ordered a pale ale. It was very good! Second beer I had was there ipa which was good but I think the pale ale was better. Food wise I had the cheddar ale soup and the pork and bacon pizza. They were both awsome! My wife had the fish and chips and she was very happy with that. My son had pizza and had no complaints. I also got a growler of ther mad cow milk stout that was also a very tatsey beer. I drank that later that night then finished it off the next day with a BA buddy. Our waiter was very nice and good at his job as a waiter but I don't think he knew a hole lot about beer. Overall a great brewery and pub! Will be back in the future! (1,504 characters)

Place was packed at 7 on a Monday. Got the only seat at the bar. Loud environment from conversation. 16 of their own beers on tap plus a solid selection of bottles and cans. Draft prices started at $5 a pint up to $7 a snifter for the high abv brews (249 characters)

Nice place with a long bar and lots of seating. Bartenders were friendly and pretty knowledgeable about the beers. Selection was pretty eclectic and there seemed to be something for everyone. (192 characters)

Always enjoy a trip to Revolution. Well above average food and a great beer selection. My only complaint is that the service is regularly spotty. (145 characters)

Rev is really knocking it out of the park right now with their culinary program. There seriously wasn't one item on the menu I didn't want to try. They keep a solid guest bottle list. While most of Rev's beer is brewed at the Kedzie facility, there are some options that make it onto the tap list which were brewed there at the restaurant. I do wish they had a rotating BA selection on tap, however. The wait here can be maddening on a weekend, but this is a great weeknight dinner spot. (492 characters)

Too crowded but the food and beer are on point. It's a good place for a date if you're dating 11 guys. (102 characters)
