Born out of a passion to create a bold, unique and exciting restaurant theme, the Industrial Revolution Eatery & Grille fuses the finest handcrafted comfort cuisine with an atmosphere that pays tribute to the American spirit of Innovation and Greatness. We aim to connect with our guests by telling the story of our nation’s inspirational past while serving them delicious classic foods favored by the American worker. This environment, which we call Upscale Industrial, is meant to inspire diners with inspirational stories of both famous and ordinary people who have made great contributions that build this country. By reminding patrons of the achievements of famous American figures, and introducing them to equally important but lesser known heroes, we encourage people to take risks of their own. We want Industrial Revolution Eatery & Grille to satisfy your hunger for a quality meal, entertain you, and ultimately inspire you to strive for the opportunities this life has to offer.

Very enjoyable themed eatery. Brought out of town guests for lunch and they loved the decor. Sandwiches were tasty and the flavored lemonade delicious.

Various family members met at Industrial Revolution as a sort of short family reunion. The location as a convenient meeting point, the service was good while not being hurried, and the food could be named "comfort food," with a few more gourmet/unusual menu items also available. The atmosphere was one of the highlights, with a vintage toy train running overhead and a general warehouse feel to the architecture. I would recommend this restaurant and would return the next time I'm in the area.

I was there when it just opened, the only difference is the smell of Brewskis is gone. Same lame food at Chicago prices and not a very good selection of traditional American beer, so it will appeal to a younger crowd that doesn't know any better (looking for what's hip or trending) but not good for an older crowd or a family.

We were in from out of town on New Years Eve and this was both well rated and close to our hotel. Really enjoyed the experience - theming was great (learned some things we didn’t know about arc welding and C. L. Coffin), service was solid and food was really good (meatloaf was excellent and my oldest son loved the stuffed bacon burger). Always a good sign to find a packed parking lot - definitely exceeded expectations and we would happily revisit

Always enjoyed dinning there whether only with the hubby or with the grandkids. There industrial burger has never failed me and both the garlic fries and sweet potato fries are delicious. Our favorite appetizer, the fried green beans. If only it was a bottomless appetizer, delish delish delish!!!!

Great food! Hard to make selection as everything is enticing. We settled on Chicken pot pie Beef stroganoff and salmon. All were delicious. We are not from Valpo area. Wish we had this dining option in our area.

Not happy with my food, probably, my fault. Known for their burgers and i ordered chicken. The rice was spicy, did not go at all with the Italian flavored chicken. They did bring me potato wedges to substitute.

Food was decent (but not amazing), and the service was very good. It was just extremely loud thanks in part to a large party nearby and also the way the acoustics work in the room.

My parents and I had lunch here. It was my first time but they had dined there before and liked it. My dad loves the pulled pork sandwich. We were disappointed that the overhead train was not running as it still is out of order. A little noisy though the restaurant was not full, but overall it was a good place to eat. We love the décor and history behind the food selections, photos, and theme.

This place never disappoints. My friend and I met for dinner after work. We both ordered the Cobb Salad with chicken. It was delicious, as always. The service is always good here, even when they're extremely busy. Industrial Revolution is one of my favorite restaurants in Valparaiso, for its delicious food, good service and friendly atmosphere. It gets too noisy sometimes, but not enough to keep me away. Great restaurant for most occasions, for adults and families with children.
