Not understanding the check amount. For that amount of money I should have been full. Kinda loud. I'm old and don't like that amount of noise. Server could care less about waiting on us. Expected more than got. We will try it again and will leave another review.

Some people absolutely love going here... I, on the other hand, Do not.

I want to, believe me. Anti-Hero is one of my absolute favorite beers, and I dig a lot of the other beers that they make. However, there are some things that really bother me.

Small portions, coupled with high prices. Yes, I get that you're painting sauces on my plate and arranging shit on top of it, but this is a brewpub. I don't want to pay twenty dollars for three ounces of meat and some veg, with three different sauces. Id you're going to charge 11 dollars for a burger, please make it larger than 8 ounces. Food does taste good, though.

The service SUCKS. Think super ultra angry combat boot hipster ladies hating every second that they're there. Ughhhh. Sorry for offending you with my existence.

Any of the non-distro beers that I've had from their brewpub, save the ten dollar 8 oz pour of some bourbon quad a long time ago, have been crap. Like, undrinkable crap. Had a few people on either side of us, plus us, decide to not finish the beers they ordered. Blech.

SO many better places to go in chicago.

Have been here a few times. It is a good place to eat actually and have some beer. The atmosphere is nice as the space inside is set up nicely and seems big and open. The food is good as well. Sandwiches were very good and mash potatoes were awesome! The beer however was just good. It was definitely not anything to talk about to much. They have some solid beers. Cross of gold and Iron Fist among them. I would also like to see more selection in beers that they make. They seem a little limited on this front. Overall, a good place to hang out and eat something with decent beer. Not good to checkout new or exciting beers being brewed in house.

Revolution is a fairly average looking place, taking no hard style cues, despite the 'Revolution' moniker. The room is clean and open, manned with a hipster-type staff. Food seemed okay, the Pizza was particularly well-recieved. Some of the beers they were brewing were excellent, others were decent. I liked BA Sodom a lot, and had several glasses. Something tells me BA Sodom is not normally on-tap, however. Overall, I thought this place underacheiving; that said, it is still really solid (just not optimizing its potential.)
