On a sunday I finally made the trip over to FFF from Ohio. Overall I had a great experience! I sat at the end of the bar by the server counter front and center to all the taps. Greg was the bartender and he was great. I tried a few half pints consisting of creepy raider, mentol, and alpha klaus. I ate duck fat popcorn, fried rice with pork belly & fried egg, pumpkin mac & cheese with pork rind crust & what was the icing on the cake was the pecan pie in the cast iron dish with fig compote paired with a little blot out the sun stout. The beer there is fantastic, and the food is really good. I will be back... Oh and I took a hoodie & two cases of zombie dust to go ;)

I've been to Three Floyds a few times now, as I live only about a 45 minutes away. This being the circumstance, I feel that I can give an overall accurate review of it based on several experiences.

Let's get real here - We all came for the beer, and we all know it's damn good. However, it seems almost unheard of in its overpricing. Overall, their on-tap pints cost the same as pints that you'd purchase in neighboring states. We came to the souce...shouldn't it be cheaper? But we can also hunt down the beer at our local liquor stores, so we can't forget the brewpub itself.

The brewery tour is a waste of time. Way too long and no free samples.

The atmosphere is pretty nice overall. They remodeled recently and updated a lot of things, such as the bathroom, tables, etc. Kind of feels like a friend's basement, with movies and metal playing. Tables are a bit cramped, but hey, the place gets crowded, can't complain about that.

I do hope that the owners are planning a massive remodel sometime in the future. They desperately need it, as a lot of people seem to get turned away due to overcrowding. Definitely not someplace that you can just drop into and have a beer. Plan accordingly to come during off-hours.

The service is where Three Floyds really lacks. The staff is compromised of either: 1. Clueless waitstaff that memorized the menu and can't answer much of anything that you can't assume for yourself or....2. The biggest snobs you have ever met. It's like most of the employees seem to think that they are in the cool kids' club and you are lucky that they even let you into the brewpub.

The food is pretty great. The pizza, burgers, etc all have their own little twists on them. I also hear that they recently did a major overhaul of their menu, so that is definitely something to check out.

The recent remodel also made beer and merchandise carry-out a lot easier. They put in a little window at the far end of the building with its own door so you can go in and out with your case of beer, t-shirt, whathaveyou. Beer to go used to be a huge pain in the neck, but not anymore.

Parking is a nightmare if you go during peak hours.

Overall, Three Floyds is a place that would be great if someone who knew the first thing about customer service was running it. The food, beer, etc is fantastic. The service, however, is awful and snobby, and many times it feels like the staff and owners couldn't care less if you came in or not.

I have stopped in at FFF a few times now and finally decided to review. First and foremost, the beer is outstanding. Large selection and all high quality. As far as the brew pub overall, I like the place. It is usually crowded so timing is everything. I try to get there early and make an afternoon of it. I have talked to several people who have had problems with service and attitude but my experiences have always been good. The staff has been friendly and accommodating. Quick with recommendations, descriptions, or a sample. The food is also a great attraction. Nothing I have tried is bad. My friends really enjoy any bbq item on the menu. The atmosphere can be loud, between the music and the usually large crowds, but still not as bad as a college bar.
This should be a destination for any beer connoisseur who is within two hours of Munster, IN.

Visited with a group of 5 on a Thursday afternoon. I had read that it can be packed right off the get go so we showed up just before 11:30 to ensure a table. Upon opening there were 6 or 7 tables, and another couple gentlemen at the bar.

Our service was fantastic, and the beer list was well put together, easy to navigate and full of information. The guest bottles were a wide variety, something for everyone.

We each got something different, and overall everyone was pleased with what they ate. I ordered the brisket sandwich which had a very nice presentation and tasted great as well. Maybe the brisket wasn't high end BBQ, but it was tasty and tender.

Definitely recommend this stop to anyone passing by. It's not that far off the freeway, and they have alot to offer. The small start attached to the pub has alot of goodies inside, don't miss out on that!

Driving from Wyoming to Connecticut I stoped in on day 2 on a sunny Saturday at around 1pm. 75 cars parked people hanging out in parking lot. 2 lines. To eat and drink or to buy cases. I did both. Sat at bar solo and was walked thru the taps while listening to cranking metal (Vinyl) eating a brisket sandwich. All I can say is if you are within 100 miles of this place go. It reminded me a bit of Tornado in SF. The bartender couldnt be cooler and even if your scene isnt heavy metal and heavy artwork this place makes you feel right at home. Oh and the beer. Holy crap. Right there with Russian River. Surly and Heady. Thanks.

My favorite place. Both food and brews always have a new adventure waiting for me as I get here about once a month. Each are always top notch.

What other brewpub have you been to that spins Slayer- on vinyl??!! Awesome atmosphere, great knowledgeable staff, and world class, kick ass beer.

They recently expanded the kitchen and dining area seating, but expect a wait of an hour or more if you go on the weekend. Absolutely worth it. They also have a snazzy new "to go" counter if you want to just pop in to get some beer to go without having to belly up to the bar or wait outside for quite a while.

What an interesting experience. my wife and I traveled with our friends up to Michigan last weekend and planned to stop that one of the Meccas of beer in the Midwest. We arrived about 3 PM so there wasn't no wait. The Restaurant was pretty full. We were immediately carded by the host and we asked for a table for four and he handed us 4 menus and were told to go find the table down the aisle. He didn't show us to our table or really help out at all but from the other reviews this is pretty standard. We were served quickly by our waiter, whom my wife couldn't make eye contact with because of his many facial tattoos. They were a bit distracting but overcame this and ordered our beer and food. A zombie horror movie was playing on the wall with closed captioning (bonus!) The food was excellent, a foodie would appreciate it. The Duck Confit pizza was excellent. The beer was spectacular. We all started with zombie dust. My wife who was driving just had a sip (she hates hoppy beers but she really liked this one. There is a first time for anything.) I think it is the amazing way the bitter hops just disappear and leave no aftertaste. How do they do that? My friend had the Topless Wytch and I had a Munsterfest. I can't say no to good German beer and it did not disappoint. We bought a case of a variety of beers and took some good photos of the alpha king and the calumet queen. If I'm ever in the vicinity I would definitely stop again, there is just something magnetic about the place. I think it is the beer!

Quick review

Been there twice, they had a great selection, waitress was nice, beer selection and quality was awesome. They had some weird black power video playing the whole time on repeat, behind artists like the flaming lips playing in the foreground. I mean I could picture a much better place.

Let you buy up to two cases of beer at a time and there beer to go is absurdly cheap (zombie dust case $35 WOW)

Would recommend this place to anyone from a beer nerd to just someone who wants to hang out and a cool new place.

Went there on a trip to Chicago, and had high hopes for a great time. Herd a lot about there beers, and how good they were. Well the beer was great, the time spent there sucked. Bad service, waited a hour and a half for our pizza that we never got. We were the 5th, and 6th people in the pub, and everbody else got there food, ate, and left. Two people behind us came in 1hr after we ordered, and they got there food before us. Wait staff seemed to be bothered by having to wait on people. Last time I checked, that was there job, silly me. They all stayed huddled together by the bathrooms trying not to have to interact with the customers. Hey if this is what the vibe there is all about, I get it, but I've never been to a brew pub with this kind of attitude, and I've been to a lot of brew pubs. Big, and small alike, ones that sell more beer than FFF, and came away feeling good about the time there. Not this place. Went to 6 in Chicago over the weekend, and had a great time at each, so it's not just me. Once again, great beer, but will never go back, and will tell people about our time there.

The food here is fantastic. Great beer and lots of music. The decor embodies the philosophy they have at Three Floyds. Can't wait to go back. I'm not sure if they are still doing burgers but the last time I was in they were barbecuing meats which were fantastic. They had 3 different sauces with my favorite being the buttermilk with the pork shoulder. As far as the beers go it is really hard to go wrong with any of their choices. Arctic Panzer Wolf is one of my favorites when it is available, or their flagship beer Alpha King is always a great choice as well.
