Got some beer "to-go" and put our names in to sit and have some food and beer in the brewpub. We were told it would be "one hour or an hour and half, maybe more maybe less". We sat at the front door on the cracked pavement amongst the unkept landscaping for two hours listening to every name called. Ours was not called and we never left the front door area. After two hours we asked how long it would be and were told we were called 4 times and didn't respond (BS) and now it would be another 1.5 hours. The people working there were rude, terse and apathetic.
They brew great beer, but we wish we didn't waste two hours of our lives sitting and waiting at this dive.
Can't say the beer isn't great, but avoid staying at the brewpub. You can get their beer at the local liquor stores.

The beer may be good but the service is horrible. Rude, unaccommodating. I've been to many brew pubs across the country and I've never seen a place quite like this. Maybe that's the experience they are trying for because I wasn't the only one with similar experiences. Other beer loving friends and family went there and came away seriously disappointed. It starts with the bouncer and continues on with the wait staff and bartenders.

I have been excited to visit this brewpub for years and when I finally did they were very rude and had way too many rules. They refuse to accommodate any request that might make them work a little harder and their service is slow and unfriendly. I wont ever go back. I have had bad service in the past but this was like meeting your hero and getting punched in the face by said person. Sorry 3 Floyd's but you have lost a loyal customer.

Of all the breweries I have been to this is my least likely to recommend to anyone. All hype in my opinion. Had to wait an hour outside before getting a table. The food menu lacked anything I wanted to spend money on (the fries were the cheapest thing at $8). The only flight you could get was of the four main beers you can actually buy in a 6 pack. There was loud metal music and a subtitled kung fu movie on all the TVs. I had one (very disappointing) beer and left.

This is a total hipster joint. Apparently they don't hire anyone who isn't socially awkward with a 6 inch beard and tight jeans-shorts . We just stopped in for a bite to eat and to pick up some beer; no tour.

Atmosphere: Dimly lit places blaring metal music don't bother me much but my girlfriend couldn't wait to get out of there. It was also kind of cramped. There is no merchandise shop to browse. It is just a girl standing at a desk and you tell her what you want. Lame.

Quality: The beers out of their taps didn't taste great to me. I was expecting a distinct freshness, considering I was getting it from the source, that just wasn't there. The glasses were clean, so thumbs up there.

Service: As I said the guy was a bit awkward. He was not informative about the beer and he made me feel like an idiot for asking about the place; as if the fact that it was my first time there was so uncool.

Selection: Selection at the bar was great. They even had a bunch of nice bottles from other places. However, the selection of beers to take home was terrible. There was only 5 different beers you get in 6 packs and 4 of them were pale ale or lighter. I understand it's getting to be summer but come on.

Food: Food was amazing. Brisket tacos! Oh My God the BRISKET TACOS!

Value: I think we dropped $60 on three appetizers and two rounds for 3 people, so pretty good.

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.

Not impressed with place. Hostess didn't crack a smile. Wanted to get a bite and enjoy some great beer. Wife and I were not allowed to stand at the bar while we waited for a table. We drove over an hour to get there in the poring rain. If we were to wait, we had to wait in the unimpressive lobby. Unless this is a fire marshal or Indiana thing, it was a put-off. Got 2 six packs to go. Big signs in the pick-up area "No Zombie Dust" - again not the best touch.

This place did not look like much from the outside, and I was disappointed with the inside. This place was a little underwhelming. They were showing some karate movie over one whole wall. Unless you like to watch people coughing up blood and being killed while you eat, it was pretty annoying. The service is fairly bad. They acted as if you you were very privileged to even come near the place. They had nothing dark on tap. Their tour was a yawner. That said, their beer was pretty good. Only go if you are looking for a specific, hard to get beer.

Was up in Munster for DLD weekend. Spent some time there before DLD as well as experiencing DLD itself. The beer I had was OK, but a bit over-rated. The night I came in to the brewpub, I felt like I was 25 years older than anyone else including the staff (and I'm still younger than 50). The place has plenty of atmosphere -- just not the kind I'm looking for as middle aged man with a family. And if the way the management runs DLD is any indication as to how they run their business, it's not worth it to be a customer. They have equal if not better beers a few miles down I-80 at Flossmoor Station while the service, atmosphere and food is much better there. I won't be returning back to Munster anytime too soon.

The beer is great, that's why we went there. HOWEVER, we have never encountered a less
welcoming rude staff. Aggressive is the attitude. More than half the reason people enjoy an experience is friendly staff or don't enjoy due to the opposite. Go wait outside was the curt response from the doorman to wait for a table. Then we were eventually seated at a table underneath a speaker that was blasting out skinhead death metal. Obviously the staff enjoyed this music, not sure anyone else did. That's the problem, this place seems to be all about the staff. The server enjoyed saying NO. No rye bread instead of white for the sausage platter. No lemon. No split checks (unless your a regular as it was done for others). No water (try getting the attention of the non-smiling server). No plates, finally got some when the servers got done chatting. Totally unenjoyable experience, as the last thing on the staffs mind is ensuring customers enjoy themselves. We're not sensitive people either. Great beer, rotten aggressive atmosphere. What a disappointment and it ruined our afternoon.

We entered the black hole that is 3 Floyds brewpub and we walked past a nice-looking bar, a couple of couches, and very large day-glo signs for the various 3-Floyds beers (the only real decor to speak of), to a table by a large window looking into the packaging section of the brewery. Scenic. Also I should mention the place smelled kinda funky. I've worked in a brewery, and they weren't really brewery smells. The music was a reasonable volume, when I was paying attention I heard Blondie, and that new band that sounds like Blondie.

I was disappointed to learn that 3 Floyds does not do samplers. This is especially frustrating because FFF's beers are almost all overproof for the style. I was told my initial beer choice was "having problems", so I started with a Rabbid Rabbit Saison (8%) and was prettymuch done for. Choose wisely, and for God's sake bring a designated driver.

The beer was awesome. Unfortunately, thats about all that was awesome on this much-anticipated Sunday afternoon. We had been seated in the restaurant over an hour and a half (not an exaggeration I fear) before our food finally arrived. We were one of two tables in the pub. Despite generous portions I'm afraid it was not worth the wait, or the price.

I was very excited to finally make it to FFF's but overall, I was disappointed in this experience. These guys make amazing beer, much of which you can only get at this brewpub, and I'd say its worth the pilgrimage to fill growlers (but not on Sunday) or try new seasonals, but I will never eat here again.

A group of seven of us visited Three Floyds on Jun 15 - Father's Day. We had heard so many great things about the brewery that we were all quite pumped to visit this 'legendary' brewery none of us had yet visited. You see, our group visits craft brewers all across the mid-west.

What we experienced we a COMPLETE disappointment! I mean really disappointing. The beer and food were excellent, just what we had hoped for. The excellence of Three Floyds stops there.

The service was a joke. Our server was simply one of the worst we had ever experienced. Everyone in our party felt like anything we asked was infringing on his precious time. Its one of those things when you ask yourself, wait, aren't I the Customer? At Three Floyds, the Customer is far from king; they are an annoyance.

Understand, our group is not a bunch of bar-hopping complainers. Rather a group of professionals that love beer. We all left Three Floyds feeling like we had wasted our time. Regardless of the quality of good food and beer, if the service and atmosphere stink, good food and beer are meaningless.

WOULD NOT recommend Three Floyds to anyone, not even my enemy.

Beer is good but they are arrogant and come off as jerks. I'll buy carryout when I'm in area.
