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.

First time being there thought the place was nice friendly atmosphere but the service was not very good we had a server that every time I ask for something took her 20 minutes to come back we would see her going back and forth but you had to really wave the hand to get her to stop and ask her where we were at getting something we had ordered and she would just say it's coming or I'll check on that and then we waited again

We had called and asked to make a reservation for a party of 7 and were told no reservations for parties greater than 6 on the weekend. So we had a 35 minute wait at 4:30pm when a party of 14 arrived after us and were seated.
Food didn’t all arrive at the same time. We’ve been here before and this time was not up to par. Our table was by the door and very cold any time door opened.

The service and the food was excellent ! We had no wait time. I have been here at Industrial Revolution a few times before, I brought my son and his family this time, because they had never been there. They were impressed and said that they are likely to return. As a added plus The I Love Lucy shows in the restroom are great. She has always been my favorite !! The kids liked the train too !

It depends on what you order; one ordered the meatloaf and found it awesome; one who cannot have any grains ordered the Cauliflower Crust pizza and found it delightfully tasty and the crust exceptional; another ordered the French Onion Soup and, although it was good, was disappointed that it was just like any other French Onion Soup; and the last ordered the Chicken Pot Pie and found it just 'okay' although the upper crust was not completely cooked all the way through. Our server was totally kumd and attentive.

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.
