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.

Made reservations earlier in the day and was able to get one on a Friday night. The waiting area was always crowded but they did an excellent job of getting people sat in a timely manner. We met with friends and looking forward to taking my family back for dinner.

Food was good. Decent sized portions. Good kid choices except the sweet potato fries or wedges choice didn't go over big with my picky ones. I would go back again without any second thoughts.

Overall, a great experience. Only complaint was that the pretzel appetizer came out a little over cooked.

Great value as always for the amount of food you receive. Mandy, our server, was outstanding.

Loved the industrial look of this restaurant and bar inside and out. Nice selection of beer. Industrial burger, garlic potato wedges, and side salad was perfect! We're from Chicago so we loved your prices most of all and appreciated the big parking lot. If we're ever visiting again, we'll be back, for sure!

My second time there. The first time, it was cool. My food got cold quickly. This time I was freezing. Had my coat on all the while. Asked for a different table but was told it is that cold every in the restaurant. My food cooled off too fast. Raise the thermostat for winter. Cut back on A.C. in summer. Then I'll be back. Our waiter was fabulous and quick. Very friendly and attentive.

A very reliable place for business group or with family and friends. Staff is courteous and knowledgeable. Great selection of local beers. Great comfort food (meat loaf, pot roast, mac & cheese) plus awesome crafted burgers, brick oven pizza, and a gluten free menu. You can't go wrong, with something for everybody!

According to the email I received from you;

Hi Steve,

We understand that plans can change unexpectedly. We learned from Industrial Revolution Eatery & Grille that you weren't seated for your reservation on Sunday for 5.

If you did indeed make your reservation, we’re sorry about the mix up. Please let us know and we’ll clarify with Industrial Revolution Eatery & Grille directly.

When you miss a reservation, it can adversely affect the restaurant. So we kindly ask that the next time you need a rain check, please do what you can to cancel the reservation. By canceling, you can help out the restaurant and also open up the table for another diner to have an amazing dining experience. You can easily cancel a reservation online, with our apps, or by calling the restaurant directly.

Kind Regards,
The OpenTable Team

I did not show up for my reservation ( even though I did) so how can I review something that. according to you, did not happen.

One thing I can say is that I will never use open table again!

The service was very good. Food was just ok. Creative burger options but very greasy/high fat content.

Very very loud so if you’re with a group trying to have a conversation, you’ll have to yell to be heard. Otherwise, the ambiance was fun.

It was all excellent except the pork shredded nachos were lacking pork and barbecue sauce. We didn’t say anything because our food showed up 5-7 minuets after the delivery of the nachos.

The atmospere and decor was great. The food was not. I ordered a 8 oz prime rib medium cook. Woth steamed broccoli and garlic mashed potatoes. My husband ordered fish and chips. The fish was very oily and he could only eat part of it and the wedges were also oily and no flavor. My broccoli was good. The mashed potatoes had no flavor and my prime rib I have personally ever seen a prime rib come out white and have a ham steak texture to it. I ate only a few bites it had no flavor and was just not what I was looking for in a prime rib. It was horrible.

Love this place! Celebrate our industrial revolution the er f big bosses,with food worthy of celebrating too.Great hamburgers,sweet fries,cold beer and blue collar eatery.limited menu but everything prepared with a touch of chef. Took the grandkids and was fascinated by the pictures on the wall and train that ran overhead to the delight of my grandson. Kids menu was greatly appreciated and their portions just right. I am a carpenter and I'm greatly impressed with the interior of this restaurant. My family has a history of steel making and construction and I love the I Beams and working man theme the interior expounds. Every time I'm there the waiters and help supersede good service,always attentive,friendly and helpful despite all the tables they serve. Only concern I have is there is seating close to the open kitchen and the activity and noise of the kithen can be a distraction at times. This place is well worth the 40 minute drive we have to get there. Visit there web site and take a friend to lunch or dinner there,great food,educational tributes to our great past big bosses who developed our country,and fun place to hang out with kids and family.
