Traffic sucked once we got off I-80, it was the longest 3 miles ever. The drive from Chicago was not bad. I knew that 3F was tucked away in an industrial area. That was no lie.

As soon was we pulled into the parking lot it was clear as day this was a brewery with a restaurant as the loading bays are right of the doors to the restaurant. Again, as expected. As we walked in the door all I could smell was beer making. What a lovely smell!!

The restaurant is fairly small, it was around 2pm on a Tuesday and most of the people eating there were locals who clearly were not there for the beer. We were. Dreadnaught on-tap... score! Blackheart IPA... nice! Alphanaught... tasty! Not to mention Gumballhead and Alpha King. There was a robust helles lager (it might have been smoked) and one other specialty beer not to mention Pride & Joy and Robert the Bruce.

Since we were on our way back to Omaha we only had two beers each, I went with 5oz glasses of both Alphanaught and Blackheart IPA and Tara did Dreadnaught and Blackheart. Of course the beers was good.

We ordered a BLT and fish and chips. I liked the fish a lot, very flaky and tasty. The fries were okay. I don't think Tara was all that thrilled with BLT. It was food and we were hungry. I wasn't expecting much and frankly our low expectations were satisfied.

The service was adequate. Our waitress seemed way over worked, she was the only waitress on the floor, there was a bartender but he wasn't doing much. When we were done eating we asked if they had a gift shop. They did we were told but our waitress was too busy to take us there. I said we could walk over. She said it was locked. Then she stared at me for a couple moments and said she'd take us there in a few minutes. Okay. So, after about five minutes she grabs a set of keys from behind the bar and escorts us to the next room (next room in the restaurant) only to find a locked display case. Our waitress told us we couldn't touch the shirts! She nodded towards Nick Floyd who was sitting nearby and said he didn't allow it. Our waitress told us to look quickly. I was irritated. I asked about hats, they had the two on display, both were not my style. I did get a t-shirt as I felt some obligation after all this "hassle". Lastly, it was an ordeal to buy the damn shirt... something to do with cash or credit card. By then I didn't care. Sorry I wanted to rock some 3F gear. Don't sell it if it is so complicated.

As good as the beer was and as inviting and chill as the atmosphere was the location is too out of the way. I wonder where the nearest hotel is? I'd stop if I was driving on I-80 but I wouldn't detour from Chicago again.

Doesn't get much better than the tap room at FFF. What more could you ask for? Great food, amazing beer, great service.

Food is great. Selection is great, including many things that are draft only. Zombie Dust is always available. More seating than you would expect makes for reasonable wait times. Overall never disappointing and worn the trek from wherever.

Never had a bad experience- mainly because I go around lunchtime. Service has always been courteous and timely. Great list of house beers and guest taps and bottles. The food is great, pairs well with the beers. Decor is cool- toys, tap handles, comic book art, metal on the radio, a cult movie of some sort usually playing with no volume. Dark Lord Day is usually a blast. Try arriving at the brewpub when they open to avoid a lengthy wait at both the pub and the to-go kiosk. Long lines whenever Zombie Dust is available

I had a good experience picking up my beer. I have heard about their customer service being terrible, but the person who helped me was friendly. She does get bonus points for being attractive so the service wasn't quite as good as I'm giving it. The beer is great and this is a must stop if in the Chicago area.

3 Floyds is top notch. Amazing beer, great food and one of my favorite places to take a small road trip to. Can't get enough of their beer and their food leaves nothing to be desired. It is all delicious and most of the offerings are not your typical "brewery" fare. Check out their pizzas and their house made beef jerky. Both are unique and great. Oh and Dark Lord Day was fantastic.

Vibe is a combo of funkiness and trash metal so You better love Metal if u r gonna hang at 3F for any length of time. While not a metal fan I'll put up with it for the opportunity to enjoy the selection of 12 3F beers on tap. Also 3'solid guest taps available.

Doesn't brew enough beer to meet demand, blames Indiana laws, but instead of opening a facility in IL or MI they open a place in Denmark. They really love their fans. Let's open a distillery too!

Three Floyd's is honestly the best brewery I have been to. Most brewers have a flagship beer that is indicative of their best style of beer. It is kind of natural to be better at one or two styles of beer over others...the difference is that 3 Floyd's not only does every style well, they are also extremely innovative. There is no question that every brewery sometimes misses, but the ratio of hits to misses is amazing!

One of my favorite places in the world. The waits and lines are tough to stomach and the service could be better, but they have the best beer and food of any bar or brewpub I've ever been to. It's worth the wait and lives up to the hype. I stop in every time I'm on my way to or from Chicago.

Yup. All 5's. It really is that awesome. The food was insane. The beer lived up to its hype, and then some. The server we had was chill. I even saw a sticker from a really small brewery by my house behind the bar at three floyds (Bad Brewing Co. in Mason, MI).

Been coming here for years and still try and make it out once a month or so. Food is excellent (although the menu is a bit limited) and they always have several standards (Alpha King, Zombie Dust, Gumballhead) as well as several rotating taps and a few guest taps. The down side is that there is almost always a wait, especially on the weekends. I have waited anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours.

I stopped over here on my way to Indianapolis, back in mid October, mainly to pick up about two cases (that was their buy-limit, by law if I recall correctly) for some friends back home, but I stopped in to say hello and try a few things. I waited for 30 minutes or so to be seated, busy place and not even lunchtime, but it was worth it. I had Robert the Bruce scotch ale and Drunk Monk hefeweizen, both great beers. Let's just say I had to sleep it off before continuing my trek. I also had some sort of bizarre steak sandwich. It was a single piece of bread, followed by chunks of succulent medium rare beef, topped with the hardest hash browns I've ever had. I enjoyed it, but I wish the food menu had had a wider selection. I sat at the bar, just so happened it was next to a gentleman who was passing through on his way to a brewing school somewhere. Very memorable experience for me considering how few brewpubs I've been to.

Oh yeah! And how could I forget the loud music?! Not that I minded! \m/

3 Floyds is geared toward a specific crowd. Between the underground metal scene blasting on the radio, the 80's/90's B movies playing on the TV's and the tattooed staff they are clearing marketing towards a specific demographic that I am fortunate to be. I love the feel of the place and frequent the brewpub quite often. Although the staff gets a bum rap for past rude employees and entitled yuppies they are quite nice and very knowledgable of their menu. The food is out of this world and is just the icing on the cake of this gem of an establishment.

The Hype is Real, this place is amazing. Good people work there and that translates to everything. I could do without the death metal but different strokes for different folks!

Awesome food! and of course Zombie Dust is great, they also have several rotating guest taps that are usually pretty good. they have a mikkeller tap too which is the only place ive ever seen have. all around, a really solid place aside from the fact that its not very big and usually packed
