Stopped here on the way to see my buddies in Madison, WI.

What can I say about this place that hasn't already been said. This joint is rocking. As soon as you walk in and see all the beer related art and hear the shedding of guitar you know you are in beer heaven.

Beers are amazing, duh, it is FFF.

Nice selection of other breweries' beers and colabs.

Food looked good but I didn't get any, liquid beer for me sir!

Gift shop is nice, picked up a sixer, bomber, a couple of tekus, and my new favorite shirt with the best beer label ever.(ZD!!!)

One of my favorite brewpubs I have visited, minus the hype. I need to come to DLD one of these days.

It's a nice place on the outside but a little cramped on the inside during busy hours. Given it's popularity I am never surprised at the lengthy wait time. The wait staff is usually knowledgeable, barring a few occasions. The food is a must try. They have a decent selection of imported beer but a selection of in-house brews that leave you wanting. They always have an entertaining flick playing so that's a plus. It's a positive experience but I recommend showing up early and expecting to drop some cash. Not overly expensive but if you're traveling I'm sure you're going to want to sample quite a few brews. Parking is also super cramped so be prepared for that. If you're planning on going on Dark Lord day, expect to take quite a hike as it's always super busy.

I have visited 3 Floyds on multiple occasions including Dark Lord Day.

The Atmosphere can be abrasive to some, but I enjoy it. It's a non-fancy, no-nonsense pub playing metal music, pouring pints of great beer, and serving delicious food. The people aren't overly warm by any means, but they all seem nice, and I've never had a problem with rudeness that some people find prevalent here.

The Quality is perfect. They always pour high-quality beer and serve high-quality food.

The Service has always been fairly prompt and lacks the rudeness I alluded to above. The guy I've dealt with a couple times at the to-go counter has always answered all beer-related questions about current and future releases.

The Selection is normally great. I've never been there when they weren't pouring their entire regular lineup, they are normally pouring their bomber selections, and they have a good selection of guest taps ranging across numerous beer styles. Their food menu normally contains some inventive dishes as well.

Their Food is very good. I've never ordered something I didn't enjoy, and like I mentioned above, they normally have some pretty creative dishes as well.

The Value is reasonable. The food isn't expensive, 6 packs are $10, and most bombers hover around $10 as well outside of some special releases.

I enjoy visiting here and try to get there a few times each year.

Food was very good. A few unique things on the menu (cured seafood plate) and some classics (scotch eggs and hand cut fries). I didn't leave hungry but my portion was a bit small. The music was very loud (not my style) which it hard to talk to people.

The beers are world class. I have never been disappointed. Even the guest beer list was impressive.

They also do a good job of updating their website with a menu and beer list (both tap and bottle) that change often.

Overall, I thought it was a bit pricey, but it was worth it.

*From my Yelp profile*

It has to be stupid of me to review this based on my very brief visit, but this is what I saw and dealt with when stopping by to pick up a couple bombers of their beer.

First of all, when I first walked in, I was "greeted" by an overweight, roughly six-foot, scruffy bearded guy that seemed to hate his life. His eyes were half closed, he sounded monotone, and he really acted like he didn't want to be there. Hey, it's a brewpub, maybe his ass was trashed. If he was though, why the hell do they let workers drink on the job?

After being told the wait would be about half an hour (I wasn't sure if we were going to eat or not), I walked over and bought a bomber of Arctic Panzer Wolf for $10 at the to-go area. I had planned on getting Apocalypse Cow, but they were out... bleh. When I got back to the front door, the suicidal obese guy was still standing there when a woman came in that surely looked to be in about her mid-twenties. The guy oh-so unemotionally said, "I need to see your I.D. You can't be in here if you aren't 21."

A few things. I'm gonna make an ass out of myself here. Maybe I'm the stupid one.

Why can't a person come here just to eat? Can people under 21 really not come in here, or was the guy just being an asscock?

I also have to wonder why the chick was walking around without an I.D. She seemed to have come alone. The brewery is in the middle of nowhere, basically, so I'm gonna have to guess that she didn't walk from home. I don't know. I'm confused.

I was at Three Floyds for all of about seven minutes, and I got a taste of what to expect the next time I visit and eat... the workers seem to be pretentious hipsters (well, that's a touch redundant) that for some reason hate their job. Ah, incompetence...

I'll update this whenever I go back -- that could be next year, the year after, or the year after.

Went for the first time last weekend on a Saturday. Got there around 11:00 AM and was surprised to see that there were only a few people there waiting. After claiming a place in line, my girlfriend and I waited for the pub to open (Brewpub opens at noon) and chatted with some of the more experienced visitors in line with us. By the time the door man had come out to take names (about 11:45) the line had grown considerably in size. In addition to the line for the brewpub, there was a nice line next to it for "To Go" beer sales. After the door man explained the rules and took everyone's names down, the doors finally opened. I was surprised by how small it was, but it wasn't uncomfortable, just "cozy." I am not a fan of heavy metal music, however if you are a fan of Three Floyd's you know they love it, so I had to put up with the droning ear death even though I couldn't stand it. But I will do anything all in the name of beer so I really didn't care. The beer selections were outstanding! I had the freshest Zombie Dust I had ever had (brewed only a few days prior according to our waitress) and was able to have as many samples of all the different Floyd's beer that I wanted. Also, there were several rare brews on cask that our waitress told us about. In addition to all the Floyd's offerings, there was a pretty nice size menu of out of house brews. The food was excellent, but rather pricey. I ordered the Hesat Slayer burger (beef patty topped with blue cheese, roasted cherry chutney, spinach, and fried pancetta on a brioche bun) at $10 however I had to order a side of fries separately for the price of $4 since none of the entrees come with sides. I felt like the offerings on the menu were trying to be a tad bit pretentious for the type of place that this is but the food was excellent nonetheless. Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating, however as the place got busier, her attentiveness to us diminished and we wound up waiting a long time for things like another refill and the check. After eating, I went to the to go line next door and purchased 2 sixers of Gumballhead (unfortunately they were not selling any Zombie Dust) at $10 a sixer which I found to be very reasonable compared to retail prices. Overall, I would definitely go back, but I'm in no rush to do so.

Getting there early is a good idea because the wait can be lengthy but nonetheless it's worth the wait. Great beers and good food. They started/perfected their flagship beers and have done a great job from then on! Don't forget to grab some beers to go!

Be sure to get to the brewpub early. I was able to get in on a Saturday with a couple friends. I enjoy the atmosphere here, enjoying metal music certianly helps. Don't be offput by people who fit this "mold' that work/attend the brewery, as you will be sorely mistaken. Our waiter was very knowledgable, johnny on the spot, and very helpful. We were never rushed at any point even though there were many people trying to get in. They had multiple great limited taps, one of which was a casked Zombie Dust that was spectacular. The food was good, but seemed like they were trying to get a little over-the-top with ingredients/pairings. Still a great afternoon with great beers and great service.

Three Floyd's does make great beer. Having said that I can only say we, the consumer are willing victims of their success. It's hard enough to get their products in near by Chicago area, particularly Zombie Dust but when you go to the Brewery one would almost think it a guarantee to get what you came for, 6 pack bottles or cases of Zombie Dust. (They can't make beer fast enough) not that I want them to rush, cut corners and compromise their quality. It only ads to the mystique.
