If it was only a brewery, this place would be in the perfect spot--in the back of an industrial park. However, because there is a fun, eccentric, colorful, magical, and intriguing brewpub that hosts one of the largest (maybe the largest--I truly don't know) beerfests in America (Dark Lord Day) every April, one might think it's in an odd place. But, I think the physical location adds to the overall je nais se qua. The food is just ok, but if I were to ask a thousand people why they go to FFF's, none of them would say for the food. Some of the most magical beer on planet earth is born here. It's fantastic to sit at the bar and drink snifters of some of their concoctions. Or take the brewery tour while you enjoy a gratis bottle of Gumball Head. I love seeing that odd diminutive gardener with the long gray braided pony tail walk through the pub in his flop hat and rubber boots. Who is that guy? Certainly not Dr. Floyd. The one responsible for so much joy. Oh yes, my friend. That is him. So what's not to love about such a lovable place. The service! The servers, I'm sure, must not only pass, they must excel--I mean, Magna Cum Laude proportions in the manner that they finish "How To Treat The Customer Like He/She Is Expendable And Meaningless To Me" school. I truly despise the wait staff there. Not
just because they're jerks. Look, if you run across a Copperhead in the woods, you might not like him, but hey, you were in the woods. If, on the other hand, you're strolling along streets of gold and pass through the pearly gates to find that you were to slow in avoiding a striking, venomous viper, well, you might hate that snake quite a bit more. Snakes shouldn't be in heaven. Nor should they be in FFF's. Condescending, nasty, power-hungry devils that they are. My advice to would-be patrons: enjoy your wonderful FFF beer without interacting with the wait staff other than ordering and paying. In my educated opinion, any patron who speaks well of the FFF wait staff or seems to be their apologist is very, very likely a victim of a psychological phenomenon called cognitive dissonance. Research it if you're not familiar and the light will come on. I assure you.

I love 3fff beer but both times I have been to the brewery it has been terrible service. They really could give a shit whether you stay or not. Really shitty because one of my favorite breweries but never going back again.

This place is much smaller than I expected. I've always heard how amazing 3 Floyd's is so I was expecting a very large establishment. When my wife and I walked in we quickly understood why this place fills up so quickly (even at 4pm on a Sunday): Not only is it very good, but it is small. The food and beer selection is excellent and varied, but service does take a while. However the wait for food and beer is worth it due to the quality. The volume is quite loud due to not only the small space and the fact that it fills up quickly, but also due to the volume of the music. The artwork, pictures and hard rock/death metal theme are all pretty cool.

Vibe is metal music, strange mix of movies on and even stranger decor.

Quality is very good.

Service has been much improved lately. They are actually friendly and inviting now.

Selection between food and tap menus is always outstanding.

I highly recommend eating here. The food is always really good and always a bit of an adventure.

OUTSTANDING food and taps lists make this place a must visit to anyone driving by.

One of the best places in five states, awesome vibe, great food, long lines. Good news is they never rush you, the bad news is the service is not in a rush either. Oh and the music is great, they spin a great mix of classic deep cuts and alt rock platters.

Only real down-side was the oppressively loud music. Oh, and the lines, which seem to be a trademark. I'll admit, never really gravitated to metal, so that is par for the course. But for the beer, which is worth its reputation, and the food which is a very nice range of tasty treats, I can wade in and deal. Now, I can say I'm glad I did not bring my daughter, who is sensitive to loud noises, and I'm not sure my wife will join me again, but overall, I came away satisfied.

Love the 80s metal pumping in the background. Service was really good, and every beer was very good. The guest taps, war pigs and the 3 floyds regulars make for some tough choices
