Went here the day before DLD 2010. Didn't know what to expect from this place, but I was impressed!

This is a big-ass place, expansive with high ceilings and some second floor seating areas that overlook the main central area where the bar is. As big and new as it is, they pack the place. The scene is great - a fairly young crowd, without too many notebook-packing tickers (except me) or Jersey shore club types (again, except me).

They had seven of their beers on tap when I went, and all were good to great. I consider myself to rate a little tougher than the average reviewer, and I gave their beers scores from B to A. They really nail the more "sessionable" styles, as their golden ale and dark mild were phenomenal for the styles. There are also almost 100 (as a guess) guest bottles as well as several guest taps.

The food is excellent. I had a burger, which was awesome, and shared some mussels and some bacon popcorn. Prices are about what you'd expect for the area and the quality. Service staff was friendly from my experience.

Great place overall! I'll definitely try to come back if I'm in Chicago again. (1,123 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)
