Coming Soon! On Broad Street, in Cranston’s historic Pawtuxet Village stands a restaurant and bar serving quality American fare and cocktails that will provide you the strength for any revolution. But, the odds are (whether you’re stopping by for our legendary Berube burger, cocktails or a celebratory dinner), the welcoming staff and creative plates are sure to make you want to settle in and leave the fight for another day.

Owner Dean Scanlon and Providence Painted Signs created the look and vibe of Revolution American Bistro. The interior pays homage to Pawtuxet Village’s rich historic roots, particularly the burning of HMS Gaspee, an English customs schooner, on June 9, 1772 at Gaspee Point. As it occurred more than a year before the Boston Tea Party, Rhode Islanders take pride that the event was truly the start of the Revolutionary War.

See for yourself what locals have been enjoying for 23 years.

We will accommodate any food preferences including vegan and gluten free options.

    Everything exceeded our expectations. We are so glad we found this place on open table. The food was delicious, our server was prompt and very attentive. She even brought me out my dessert with a lit candle on it because she found out my bday was a few days ago. We took our 10 year old son and she said that even though they didn’t have a kids menu for the New Year’s Eve menu, she offered pasta with red sauce which is my sons favourite. The ambiance is perfect with the low lighting and the decor is very nice. We will definitely be back to try their full menu. Well done Revolution !!

    We were very disappointed. Please keep in mind, I can count on one hand hand how many times in my life I've sent a meal back. The calamari was a bit undercooked and flavorless, but it wasn't so bad that we would send it back. Then came our entrees. A filet mignon, stuffed shrimp, tomahawk and plain pasta. All the meals, except the pasta and tomahawk came out cold and the veggies weren't even cooked through. We sent everything but the pasta and tomahawk back. The waitress was great! She totally understood, apologized, and took care of it. When it came back out, everything was much warmer (not as hot as we'd like but considerably better) and they re-plated everything - which was was very nice to see. The food wound up being pretty good, but for the price and that the restaurant wasn't all that busy, we were disappointed. Kudos to the waitress for handling things perfectly and to the chef for re-plating. Not sure if we'd try Revolution again. Perhaps if a friend of our's had a great experience, we could be convinced to give them another shot.

    We have not been for years, sat at the bar. First, far too cool to be comfortable. They actually had the AC on in January. The bartender turned it off, but it came back on. I have to say, service was outstanding. Please, if your customers are wearing jackets dining, turn the heat up. The food was a mixed bag. Crab cakes, outstanding. Pizza, very good. Jamabalaya was not correct, tasted like american chop suey with a kick. And pasta was way overdone, cooking 101 fail. Overall, disappointing.

    Service was great! Food was excellent. Outside beautiful. Would have enjoyed my martini more in a martini glass. Tasted like plastic and it wasn’t as cold in plastic. Cold make an exception for martini and wine. Use stemless glasses ? They just aren’t great in plastic. Restaurant next to us allowed glass for those types of drinks. Still we enjoyed our evening there.

    Our server was either overloaded or not very with it. Everything we ordered, from cocktails to entrees, took forever snd our appetizer came out after the entrees with their apologies. That being said though, the food was very good. I would return.

    We ate in one of the igloos, which was great because it was just the two of us for our anniversary so it was nice and quiet. Service was exceptional. Food was very good overall, but my roasted potatoes were undercooked and hard. Everything else: spinach-artichoke dip, grilled pear salad, lobster and crab ravioli, NY steak, and desert were all excellent.

    The food was very good. We had hoped to eat in an igloo because of the wind but it was too hot to sit in it. The staff was great and moved up. I would reserve an igloo again on a chilly day or night.

    This was our first visit to Revolution. I ended up reserving an igloo outside and each one of them were themed. They are kind of private and quiet which makes a great date night. It was very comfortable inside in the service was excellent. Everything was reasonably priced and delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant and I will definitely be back with friends.
