We went there during RestaurantWe went there during Restaurant Week and had a great time. The food, the service everything was great.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food Great decorOverall a great evening. Our server was Total disconnected from planet earth. Had to repeat everything 3 times6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful, friendly service.Wonderful, friendly service. We went for the first time during Triangle Restaurant Week, and the cook was even willing to create me a gluten-free version of their featured dessert! Will definitely plan on going back.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother impressive fantastic meal!Once again we had an amazing experience at G2B. The food is absolutely fantastic. There is something for every palette. From burgers to foie gras, and also a gorgeous combination of both! Whether you want something traditional or something more inventive, G2B has it. Full bar with a great beer and wine selection, the highest quality fresh local ingredients, house-made charcuterie, vegetarian and pescatarian options, beautiful though unpretentious atmosphere, great for a date or a family or work outing....the reasons to love this place go on and on. This is our favorite restaurant in Durham. I cannot recommend it enough!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurants Week BuzzA very upscale offering for $20.00 bucks however a very limited menu.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AM1st time great, 2nd time betterMy wife and I really enjoyed G2B when we came the first time, so we figured we would try it out again during Triangle Restaurant Week. The prix fixe menu looked exciting, but at only 20 dollars I was a little worried. Well they certainly brought their A game. As there were two choices each course, my wife and I got one of everything and it was all great. I especially enjoyed the coffee and cocoa rubbed pork tenderloin, while my wife's favorite was the chocolate ganache dessert. Our server Daniel was really friendly and quick with service, and the manager Chris recommended two beers off their 'reserve' list that were delicious.
We will definitely be back again and are hoping to try one of their beer dinners soon.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMalways interestingI love eating at G2B and enjoy their regular menu. But I especially love seeing what they've come up with for Triangle Restaurant Week as they seem to be especially inventive with that special menu. This time the watermelon/cucumber soup and the rosemary ice cream were special treats, as was the pork main course. I hit a perfect weather night for eating outside, too. Excellent and fun!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPrix fixe for Triangle WeekMy friend and I went here to catch up and to take advantage of the $20 3-course Prix Fixe menu during Triangle Restaurant week. We were delighted with everything and got a real bargain! Outstanding first course of haricot vert with fried egg on top, followed by entrees of shrimp with risotto and pork tenderloin, and a wonderful chocolatey dessert. Our server, Mariano, was attentive and helpful without being overbearing.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was amazing! We willThe food was amazing! We will definitely be back soon.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood FindNice to find a good restaurant open on Sunday night!
Food was excellent and nicely served. We really liked the wild mushroom risotto with the mixed lettuce salad. We shared a great swordfish entree.......and then finished off with two "homemade" deserts!
Two of us went for the first time to celebrate an anniversary. Not crowded.....and if it had been, it might have been too noisy for a quiet, special dinner. Not a "romantic" ambience but pleasant and very attentive and knowledgeable staff.
I imagine it could be a "vibrant bar scene". It wasn't on a quiet Sunday, Holiday evening.
Amazing selection of beer......although we prefer wine and had some good wind by the glass.
We definitely will go back......and take some friends with us!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMInviting!From the moment we hit the front door until the moment we walked out the front door, we felt like we were special guests. Chris was a perfect Host to a great evening out. We had only given a passing thought to where we would have dinner and wanted to try something new for us. Chris made sure we made the right choice. This pub has an impressive beer list and the menu has something for everyone as well. We chose a table outside and were treated to a passing storm. We had perfect cover from the rain and the view was fun. Our waitress was attentive and likable. The food was expertly prepared. Our table had the five item charcuterie, scotch egg, grilled romaine, the G2B burger and garlic fries. We didn't have room for dessert.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI absolutely love the grilledI absolutely love the grilled romaine -- I hope you keep it on the menu for a long time!!!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique PlaceThis was a great find. A fit for foodies menu in a trendy restaurant that is also kid-friendly. We got great, interesting food, along with trying some new local beers from their amazing beer list, while our kids hung out in the gaming chairs and played the wii before eating their burger and fries. The small plates that we tried were great, and I was impressed with the house-made breads and house-made charcuterie. This restaurant is a bit hidden behind the building, which may be why it was not very crowded, but it is definitely worth checking out. Oh, and good service makes a good meal. The waiter was knowledgeable and helpful with the beers and navigating the menu.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodIt was nice to eat at a restaurant with a menu that was different than the norm. Excellent food. Liked it so much we made reservations for brunch.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMsomething for everyoneThe men at G2B is unique and inventive with a variety of price points, and the food was delicious. Our server was a little strange, urging my party to order even before serving most of our drinks. And another server noticed that we never got bread and took care of it.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAn off nightThe dining room was not full but it took forever to get our food. The drinks were small for the price and slow to be brought to the table. The saving grace was the food - delicious.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner at G2BG2B is a wow! My wife finally agreed to try something new so we went to G2B and after having a little trouble finding it, it's in the back of an office building, we were pleasantly surprised. Great wine list with reasonable prices. Menu is a mix of small plates and entree's. We started with a chicotarie board, featuring Duck, Duck pate and some great cheeses that were fantastic. We then shared a few small plates. Best risotto I have ever had. and had desert as well. The menu isn't huge but very eclectic.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful service and foodwonderful service and food , good jazz ! wonderful experience and definitely will tell our friends !4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply terrific, that is ALLOur waitress made the night, she was so friendly and easeful and knowledgeable. Just a lovely girl. Then the FOOD was perfect, every dish. Three of us had vegetarian choices and one ate the lambburger. All were most happy.
We then ordered two desserts to share and they were superb, better than anything. oh wow
We are all seniors and wondered if giant TVs and noises would be too much. It was ok, did not distract us or worry us. We sat next to the cooks and were thrilled that the head chef is a FEMALE.
And we were told she is a meat person but her vegetarian dishes are really fine.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved the food, great service,We loved the food, great service, extensive beer list - amazing selection of bottles. The menu items were innovative, expertly prepared with skill and care. We've been to other restaurants which presented eclectic small plates and innovative dishes, but thought G2B was a step above the others. A great place, we will return again.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were great.Food and service were great. Really liked the tablet to order drinks from. That would be an easy way to change menu often.
Prices on food and beverages were a little yo high to be comprable to some of our downtown favorites.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI went to G2B for a date nightI went to G2B for a date night and love it. Great food, service and atmosphere!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were visiting from outWe were visiting from out of town for a birthday/anniversary getaway and wanted to go some place nice. After reading the menu and reviews online, we choose G2B. The food was pretty good. We ordered the paella stuffed calamari to start with. It was a bit tough but very flavorful. I had the lamb burger. It was very good (especially without the bun)and the sauteed kale was delicious. Of server recommended a great pear hard cider that we both enjoyed. He also brought out a dessert for my husband (it was his birthday). It was a delicious mint ice cream and cookie.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant SurpriseThis restaurant is a pleasant surprise given its location in an office building. We found the food to be interesting and tasteful and the servers very attentive. We will be taking friends there.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Birthday Celebration!I had a fantastic experience at G2B. I came in to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and was blown away by the level of service, the delicious food, and the effort that the staff put in to making this night truly special. The head chef, host and general manager all personally told her "Happy Birthday", and the Chef went out of her way to give us a couple of special items throughout the meal. We ordered a bottle of wine and the bottle service was on point; presented elegantly, served properly, and I neither of us ever had to refill our own glass. At the end of the night, our dessert was served on a plate that had the words "Happy Birthday" elegantly written on chocolate on the upper rim. It was unbelievable and I truly recommend to all4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent! TheThe food was excellent!

Then small plates are great. The clams were wonderful as was the risotto and pear salad we had our last visit. Of course the large selection of beers is a plus. Would highly recommend.
They seem very anxious to provide a great eating experience. Hope their out of the way location doesn't hurt them.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I enjoyed ourMy husband and I enjoyed our first visit to G2BPub. Excellent food menu, great beer selection. Liked the dining atmosphere in the Jazz Lounge, we came to hear the Straight Up Jazz Ensemble. Perfect music to match the atmosphere and crowd. Thanks! We will be back. Both of us want to check out the lunch menu. Also-the regular dining area looked comfortable for families as well as adults, it was classy, but casual. Great TV bar area as well.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant surprise!We were pleasantly surprised. Everything was delicious. We will absolutely be back.2/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
