2011: Waited about an hour on a saturday for a party of 6, not too bad considering. All manner of eye-catching schwag on the walls, an original Dreadnaught label painting, psychotronic art, flags, posters, soccer scarves, etc. Imagine a Bennigans approach to decor, acid dipped in Willy Wonka psychedelia. Great atmosphere, efficient staff, great food. Seems they are trying to position themselves as a restaurant, which was slightly odd. Was told at the door we couldn't stand at the bar for this reason. Overall a convivial experience though, and plan to return when time allows.
I've been here several times under various circumstances, most recently this past weekend. It was a busy friday night, the lot was packed, but we got in and found a table right away. After 10pm it seemed to clear out. They had a movie or film show projected on one wall.
We had appetizers and the homemade dessert special, which was strawberry rhubarb cobbler. Mad Anthony IPA was a guest draft, along with that I sampled a Dreadnaught in a 10oz. for $4. There were a few pub-only drafts, which are worth a trip alone.
Our server Sophie was really friendly and knowledgeable about the beers. We got a couple Gumballhead growlers to go, and also bottles of their latest small batch, Blackheart IPA.

I stopped here on the way to spending a few days in Niorthern Indiana, so planned to arrive at lunch, which we did. The place wasn't hard to find, it's tucked back in an industrial area. The inside of the place is divided in two, the left half has tables and the bar, the rigt half is all tables. The place was not crowded, we sat down and were given menus immediately. The advantage of the place being divided in two be came apparent when right away a couple came in with a very poorly behaved kid. Not wanting our lunch ruined by an unruly kid, we moved to the bar side, and the server was very understanding.
I ordered fish and chips, my wife ordered a steak sandwich. The food was good, they use tilapia in their fish and chips, a rarity. It was very light and had a good flavor. My wife had a steak sandwich, which she said was good, but messy. I had two beers, a Gumballhead and a Rabid rabbit. Everything was good, and although I found the decor a bit plain, to me it says this is a place to come and enjoy the food and beer, not the wall decor. It succeeds in that very well.

So since our first visit over two years ago, things have changed vis-a-vis the popularity: no longer is it possible to spend a quiet Saturday afternoon there as we discovered on a cold February day. That was really off-putting, but we did manage to score a table at lunchtime on a Wednesday as our first stop on Dulcie and Aylwin's Big Beer Adventure vol V. Not a lot has changed in two years, except the food has improved - like where in a bar are you going to get haricot verts, prosciutto and a poached egg? And don't forget the mussels. No need to say anything about the beer part.
This place is one of the best in America. Totally weird it's in Munster.
Our first visit to FFF was DLD, which made for an insane experience, like trying to get into a night club in Piccadilly Circus with bouncers and girls sneaking in saying they had to use the lav. It was complete mayhem but quite amusing. So when we returned a couple of weeks later we didn't quite know what to expect.
It was actually remarkably quiet in the late Saturday afternoon and all the tattoos and piercings had been replaced by fairly normal looking people. We were shocked to see that some were not even drinking beer! How come? As I mentioned on my blog at the time, it's because the food is really good; I mean shockingly good for a place like that. Not fine dining by any means but quality and fit for the beer. So locals go for the food but don't necessarily booze.
Beer of course incomparable, with their own offerings superbly balanced by several guests. You can't go wrong.
Most of the time one can get a decent table, although the logistics are a little strange - it just about overcomes the fact it's stuck in this industrial park in the middle of nowhere.

I think I have to give the Three Floyds brewpub an all-5 review. We stopped (at my urging) while on the way back from a Chicago trip. I wanted to go mainly for the beer, although there are no take-away sales on Sunday (Indiana law), but we ended up stopping for dinner, too. By the end of dinner, everyone in our group of 8 was raving about the whole experience.
The brewpub itself is a little hard to find, but that lends to its charm. Once you drive you way onto the back streets of an industrial park, you're there. Unassuming building - plenty of parking out front.
They had a big selection of their beer on tap, as well as some guest taps. Amongst our group, we order about six different beers and passed them around: Rabbid Rabbit, Alpha Kong, Topless Witch (one of the best porters I've ever tasted), Pride & Joy, Gumballhead, and Robert the Bruce. All the beer was fantastic.
Service was excellent - they were willing to seat and serve a group of 8 instantly. Everything came out quickly, they answered all of our questions, and were willing to split the bill.
The food really surprised us with its excellence. I expected standard pub fare, but it went above and beyond. The salads were great. I had an excellent reuben sandwich. The fries - which were cut thin and generously salted - came with a curry ketchup and horseradish aeoli. We also tried their beer cheese bread. Everyone made comments about how good their meals were.
I will gladly stop by Three Floyds any time I'm passing through Munster. Amazing beer, top-notch food, great staff.

I've lived close enough to this place for a long time. Just never had a chance or even thought about going. Until now. What a great place to sit down and have a few pints. Either sit at the bar with a good friend. Or chill out on the couch with a group. Just a great atmosphere. They have a nice selection of 3 Floyds brews. A majority of beers that you may not be able to find at the retail level are available here. I was very happy to get to try some new beers that i have not had a chance to try. Overall a great place to visit.

Stopped at the brewpub on the way to visit friends in Chicago the day before Dark Lord Day 2008.
We arrived shortly after noon on a Friday and were promptly seated. Even though much of the staff seeemed to getting for the next day, service was excellent and the beer selection selction was good. The food items were a bit limited (or at least the waiter told me this) but there was still a great selection. The food and beer were presented nicely, The food portions were perfect, and it was a very positive experience.
I would recommend stopping if you are in the area.

Visited the pub the night before DLD last week. Being from SC, where we can't even get any FFF beers, it was pretty exciting to be sitting in the pub. We ordered several pints, as well as some garbage fries, pizza and salad, all of which were great, but a bit salty. Be sure to ask for light salt when you go. The fries were monstrous. I couldn't believe how much food one could get for so cheap. The staff was courteous, casual, and knowledgeable, albeit a bit arrogant (but come on, they work for FFF). They had all of their beers, of course, as well as a bunch of others including a few belgians and even PBR. The beers were typical prices, although high gravs were perhaps a bit pricey, $7-$12 for a 10-oz pour. If you live in the area, or are around for any length of time, I'd highly recommend stepping in here for a few fresh pints.

Hung out here the night before DLD. Arrived at about 9 after spending some time in Flossmoor, IL. Sat with several friends from Alabama who were there for DLD as well. The On-tap offerings were many and varied. I was thoroughly impressed. The beer was fresh and mighty good. I had the Decimator Dopplebock, Blackheart IPA, Alpha Kong and an Alpha King at last call. The Alpha Kong was AMAZING, to say the least. Our waiter was not overly attentive but attentive enough. Bettlejuice on the big screen TV helped add to the mystique inside. It's in a warehouse district where all the buildings look the same. You would never know this jewel was there.

I stopped by the brewpub for dinner, and a couple beers the night before DLD. The place was full, but not as packed as I expected it to be. They had their usual suspects on tap with four or five rotating offerings. My favorite was the Alpha Kong. I'm not sure if the menu was scaled down because of DLD, but it only consisted of a handful of deli sandwiches, and pizzas. A couple of the guys I was with ordered sandwiches, which they said were mediocre. I split a pizza with a buddy of mine which was alright. Our server was prompt, but copped a really bad attitude when we asked for separate checks. I would go there again if I lived in the area, but I sit at the bar and stick to the beer.

We stopped by the brewpub on the day before DLD, to stock up on fresh Alpha King and enjoy the place.
In my opinion it is a very nice looking brewpub, if not special. Music was very loud, which I do appreciate.
Service was a little bit slow, but they were probably getting ready for DLD. Food was impressively good, and the beer selection is outstanding. If fresh FFF was not enough, the line-up of guest breweries is very good, although I was disappointed to find out they ran out of Aecht Schlenkerla Fastenbier.
All in all, a great brewpub.
