What can I say, I've been coming here for years their food is always good. The brewpub has gone through a remodel recently that has improved the seating. Their service has noticeably gotten better. The beer selection couldn't be better I'm truly lucky to have been born and raised in this area. Needless to say give them your money its worth it.

Visited Three Floyds for lunch on a Thursday afternoon while on a beer-centric road trip. Despite the parking lot being pretty full, there were some empty tables. Pretty cool atmosphere with metal playing in the background and movies projected on the wall.

My wife started of by ordering a Zombie Dust and I ordered a Gumballhead since I hadn't had it before. The beers came out quickly, but it kinda took the waitress a while to come back and take our food order...oh well no biggie.

After we ordered the food came out pretty quick. My wife had a burger which I had a taste of and it was pretty tasty. My jerk chicken sandwich and fries were quite tasty as well. I felt like the sandwich prices were a little on the high side though, especially since fries weren't included.

We tried a few more beers before leaving...she had a Lord Rear Admiral and I opted for an In The Name of Suffering. Both were pretty solid.

Zombie Dust cases were sold out, but we got a case of Gumballhead and a case of Alpha King to go...and a case of TEKU glasses as well!

Overall I'd definitely stop in again. Hopefully they'll have Zombie Dust to go next time!

Visited last Sunday afternoon, St. Pats day. 15 minute wait for a seat (hit the carry out counter), and sat at the bar facing the tappers. Perfect. They had everything you would hope for on tap. Zombie Dust was my choice and it lived up to its reputation. Very satisfying. Wife and I both had a burger, which we both enjoyed. The two guys working the bar were friendly and attentive, as were the servers who were stopping at the bar to pick up orders. I was a little concerned reading that the pub was heavy metal, but it wasn't overly loud and conversation was easy. The carry out counter was quick and easy. The only qualm was that they have a more limited selection. No ZD that day, but several other good choices eased that pain. Prices were very fair also. There's a lot of good brewpubs around Chicago, but none better than this. I can't wait to return.

I drove down to 3 Floyds with a couple buddies after a lot of hype. I have to say, it lived up to the hype. Though it was a bit pricey for the portion (I just got a single hamburger) it was well worth it. My buddy got the poutine, which was incredibly delicious. My other friend got the cheese platter which was also surprisingly great. My burger was fantastic. The bun was thick but wasn't at all overwhelming when I took a bite. The meat was cooker perfectly to order, and had so much flavor to it. It was that good quality ground beef flavor, without any serious seasoning. Just goodness.

The draft selection in the brewpub was as one expected, very good. I was only somewhat disappointed with the selection from the "to go" part of the store. Still, everything I got was delicious and I'm counting the days until I can get back down there.

Also, there was a line to get in when we got there. We arrived about 40 min to opening on a Saturday and were seated almost immediately

Overall: Well worth the wait and price. Fantastic food, beer, and all you could really hope for in a brewpub.

I live very near 3 floyds and visit the brewpub often for a beer or to grab stuff to take home. I have to say overall that since I discovered floyds it is one of my favorite places to have a beer, not only because their beer is excellent but also i think that the atmosphere is pretty laid back. People will obviously point out that there usually is a wait to get a table or sit at the bar, it is worth it. Metal and punk playing in the background, a projector playing movies on the wall and good food and even better beer.

I have to say some of the changes they've made to the food menu over the last few years haven't always been great, I feel like they have gotten too fancy pants with some of their offerings and some people won't enjoy some of the intense flavors of some of the dishes offered. That being said they have some really great menu items and I really like their french fries. The service has always been pretty good, the servers and bartenders are always knowledgeable about beer and food offerings. I think that the staff could be a little more "friendly" but to be honest as long as I get my food and beer in a timely manner I don't really care.

To summerize, great atmosphere, great service, world class beers, and good food. Worth every second of the wait if you are in the area so don't pass up the opportunity to check 3 floyds out.

I absolutely love this place. The only beefs I have with this place are really nothing to cry foul about either... Only reason I gave service a 4.75/5 is because when they are super busy they can take a little while. That's expected though so like myself, you must have patience.
I gave food a 4.75/5 because they have some off-the-wall selections sometimes that I'm not a fan of. There is always something on the menu that I absolutely enjoy though.

The beer is top notch of course!

I have been to 3F many times, being how its only 10 minutes from my house. That being said I love their beer, I love their atmosphere, and I like their food. The love of their beer should be obvious. The atmosphere appeals to me because of the apparent love for metal music, silly gore, and off beat artwork. Their food is sometimes good and sometimes average, never has blown my mind. For the older beer lover, this place may be a little loud and dark. So thankfully they have a nook to the side for beer-to-go.

Love their beers, but not their brewpub. It's loud, worn, and the staff weren't what I would call friendly. In what I find to be typical symptoms of the sickness of 'trying-too-hard-itis', they were trying so hard to portray the cool/edgy/hip vibe which always comes off as pretentious if forced. It's not CO or CA, so hey, roll with it, us Midwesterners don't have anything to prove!

Food wasn't the best, but fortunately at the end of the day I don't really give a damn about the food, the service, or the atmosphere; I'm here for the beer, and beer was had. Arctic Panzer Wolf and Zombie Dust were additions to Three Floyd's beers I love, joining Robert the Bruce and Dreadnaught. Considering the last brewpub I was at prior to this was Ballast Point (San Diego) a couple months ago (which I thought was simple, but spectacular) it's not a surprise that I wasn't in love with this place. To top it all off, it was more expensive to drink here than it was at Stone (which is palatial)!

Great place, real fun atmosphere. The beer selection is great, they do switch out beers so it is not the same all the time. The food has not let me down yet, particularly the Blood Lust Burger. The only downfall is that there is generally a pretty long wait to get in and they do not take reservations. But in my opinion, it is definitely worth the wait.

Everything I could possibly say about this place has been said before. Some people really appreciate the Don't-Give-A-Damn attitude. I just found it to be crap service.

The most enjoyable part about the whole experience was when we were told there would be an hour long wait for our table at 9PM on a weeknight. So we picked up a six pack of ZD and went out back behind the brewery to the drainage ditch to drink the beer. It was freezing cold and the smell was terrible, but we didnt have to deal with the staff and the beer was amazing.

Between me and two buddies that were there we got to try 7 different beers and 5 of them had the exact same hop profile (again well known about FFF).

I love FFF beer and I will always go out of my way to seek it out. If I am ever passing through I would definitely be inclined to stop and see what they had for carry-out. Otherwise I would never waste my time at the brewpub itself.
