There aren't too many nits to pick with 3 Floyds Brewpub.

Atmosphere is funky, with loads of beeraphernalia and local art, ranging from comic book to trippy. An overhead projector throws movies up onto one wall. One table has couches in lieu of chairs. The bar itself is comfy, solid, and full of regulars.

Service is perfect at the bar. Occasionally the waitstaff elsewhere is a little off--not too knowledgeable, not too frequent, or otherwise sort of removed--but this is sparing. Often the waitstaff consists of beer geeks, which is nice for chatting about beer but provides a different experience than a normal restaurant--I'm fine with that, though.

Selection's interesting. Not the most taps in the world, but always loaded with Alpha King, Bruce, Gumballhead, etc., as well as some one-offs--Bourbon-Barrel Aged Cherry Behemoth as of last night, even. There are some good guest taps that constantly change, and a short but well thought-out list of guest bottles, in addition to their own beers. It's really hard to beat fresh Dreadnought and Arctic Panzer Wolf, or Alpha King on the beer engine. Growlers of everything but the really rare stuff are available.

Food stands out here, for a beer place. Bangers and mash, as well as cassoulet, stood out last night--fries and mac and cheese complemented well. Prices are low, but portions aren't gut-busting, except for maybe the burger. Still, an excellent value for really great execution. Menu changes up occasionally, but they post it online.

All in all, this is one of the best places to eat and drink in the Chicagoland area. If you can con someone into designatedly driving, or your SO hates beer--get over here.

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
