The brewpub is pretty much off the beaten path but there is plenty of places to park. The beer that these guys brew is great and the food was really good too. The bartenders were very helpful and the music was great- Black Sabbath. The only complaint is that you have to wait!!

Great atmosphere. Great beer. Great food. Great service. Friendly employees who are knowledgeable. Can't ask for much more.

Seems like some people really rag on the service here, and I have no idea why. The employees have been nothing but friendly and helpful to me.

FFF is a must-visit type of place. It's a small establishment, so you'll likely want to get there early. If you do get there early, it gives you that sensation of getting a brand new toy to have all to your self; the service is great, the atmosphere is fantastic, and the beer doesn't get much better. What more can you ask for?

Being that I don't get to go and see new things often, I took advantage of my business trip to East Chicago to check out this place because I wanted to know what all the hype was about. I am not a big hops fan, but I was hoping I might find something to rant and rave about when I got there.

For running a pub, the heavy metal thing really really turned me off and all the satanic themed symbols was not really my bag. I'm not a religious zealot, or a Jesus freak, I just think I would want to attract as many customers to my place of business as possible and I think the atmosphere certainly would push certain people away, maybe that's what they're going for. It's cool, I understand part of the mentality of the brewery dynamic is being different and celebrating it, but to me, a potential patron, it was almost offensive. I love beer and love experiencing it, but I would never go there again, I certainly couldn't take my wife there.

Past the atmosphere though, loved what I drank and ate! Had the belgian they had on tap, I forgot what it was called, it was cidery, but really complex, delish. After that, I got a glass of Toxic, great take on a stout and enjoyed it with my made to order brownie with Toxic ice cream, burnt marshmallow and bacon sprinkles on top.

Bottom line, good tasting fare, but I did not like the endless metal and the anti-christ memorabilia.

Excellent beer, great food. Closest brewery to my house and I absolutely love it.

Usually playing metal music, or an interesting movie up on the projector

The servers are usually always nice and helpful, and the bartenders are great people too.

Excellent place highly recommended

If you are in the area this place is a must visit (only about a 30 minute drive from most places in Chicago).

Great food, great beer, and an amazing atmosphere.

The short rib burger is to dies for.

Usually has some sort of small batch brew that does not hit distribution.

Weekdays are the best time to avoid long lines.

I always have a great time at 3Floyds.

Walk in to hear the metal music blaring, and once you're seated enjoying your amazing brew, there's always an amazingly cheesy sci-fi movie to watch. One of my favorite brewpub atmospheres, even excluding the incredible beer offerings. Samplers here only give you a taste of the 4-5 3F staples, so I would definitely recommend branching out to the other offerings on the menu. They even have quite a few "guest" brews available but I've never strayed from the 3F offerings. Most recently I got the Loco Mojo pizza and it was incredible.

I've heard quite a few people talk about employees being rude to them, but every time I have been there it's the perfect amount of helpfulness without being annoying. Any time I am in the area (and sometimes when I'm over 3h away), I will continue to stop by and get anything I can.

it is what it is. these guys make great brews and have some pretty interesting food as well. the part i don't like at all is you can't do a flight or samples. customer service is not a strong area here as well. i always appreciated the artwork in this place.

Great place. Parking seems to be a bit limited - lot was completely full but there were tables and a few seats at the bar available. Street parking available. Atmosphere might not appeal to some - music tends towards metal and harder stuff (which is fine by me), but it wasn't too loud (granted this was weekday lunch time, volume might vary evenings and weekends). The food is quite a cut above normal bar food, with higher prices than one might expect. However, given the higher quality, the value is good. Loved the homemade sausages. Great tap selections of fff beers and a few outside brews. Two case limit for takeout beer sales.

I have one beef with Three Floyd's: The pub and carry-out are terribly undersized for their reputation. At times it is very difficult to get in unless you have an entire day to spend there. That being said, it's totally worth it.

The food is all a la carte, which is fine, just don't be surprised when you don't get fries with you 12$ hamburger. The good thing is the food is amazing. It's like pub food with a four star restaurant flair. They use their beers in a lot of recipes too, which always makes me a little sad that the beer isn't being poured in my mouth.

The beer is world class. They do a very nice job of keeping some things tap-room only, some growler only, and some bottle only but also mixing and matching. It keeps it interesting.

I waited in line 40 minutes last time I was there to get beer to go, but it was more than worth it. Zombie Dust is all it's cracked up to be, and many of their seasonal and specialty beers are just as amazing. Really the prices are quite good as well. 35$ for a case of beer seems like a lot, but every bottle, every pour, every sip makes it feel totally worth it.

Really just a solid brewpub with great food, great image, and some of the most fantastic beer in the Midwest.
