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.

I liked that the server was able to bring a little history to the table. Our server was very nice and attentive. Overall the food was very good with one exception. The fried pickles were very greasy and the pickle inside them could be a bit thicker for more pickle taste. I will go back and visit again.

Food was cold, dry, bland, and didn’t fit the menu description for toppings. Service was good.

Met some Chicago family there for a visit. I had a Reuben. The toast was burnt, and the corned beef was not shaved. It was cut thick like jerky. A bit tough to chew. I ended up eating it open face so the top piece of toast didn't get eaten. Won't order that again even if I go beach because of the convenience of the location.

The noise level was particularly loud. We would have preferred a more quiet dining experience. The food was very good; the waiter was very good. Conversation was almost impossible.

1st time our kids went & they loved it. The adults both had whiskey cocktails & were happy with them. Art on the walls are reminisce of days gone by and the model train chugs along overhead. The names of dishes & drinks are a salute to the people of the industrial revolution. I had the perch tacos--very tasty & crispy and they were dressed with a citrus sauce. I'd probably skip the rice next time & pick a different side (was just okay-spicy). Kids had chicken fried chicken & chicken alfredo--they ate it all. I Love Lucy tv shows play in the women's restroom. Service was fantastic and I recommend reservations during peak hours..you get right in then. This is a popular place (for good reason) & everyone really seems to enjoy dining here.

We love dinning at this restaurant. We stop here almost every time on our way to visit family up in Wisconsin. The american style food is always great with some of the best burgers you can get. Whatever the special is, get it because its always delicious! Our young kids eat up the food and enjoy watching the train go around the building.

This restaurant has beautiful decor and an interesting menu. The pot roast was amazing, tender and full of flavor. The white sangria was delicious and the chocolate cake was really good too. We ordered the nachos for our group to share and they were huge! We will definitely go back.

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.
