    The Cajun fish tacos are so good that I spent 2 months thinking about them, then planned my husband's birthday party there just so I could eat them again. Seriously, order them!

    Reallybadmeal
    Dined on 7/4/2014
    Food was very over priced and had very little taste. I ordered the flat bread pizza and had to doctor it up with BBQ sauce, Parmesan cheese, chicken, and veggies from my daughters meal. Artichoke/crabmeat appetizer was like a little crabmeat and artichoke swimming in mayonnaise with no flavor/spice to it at all. Really bad. Stir fry looked good until we dug into to it and found it was mostly rice. Again with no flavor. The good news is the server was very good and made a bad meal less painful. Our bill was right at $100 and had a $25 Buckhead gift certificate. Even with the $25 off, we all felt our meal was no way worth $75. It was an "Applebee's, frozen out of a box" experience at best.

    The beer selection is what I would expect if you call yourself a brewery. The taste of said beer was unexpected. The beer is great! The food selection was really cool and gave me lots to choose from. Took my mother in law with us to dinner and she enjoyed the fish and chips, my daughter and wife had steak and I had Tuscan Pasta. For me, I enjoy a menu that offers a lighter option and the pasta delivered in spades. The place go a little noisy when the guys started shooting pool but other than that it was a great atmosphere. I cannot wait to go back and sit outside when it is a little cooler.

    I always end up here when the cental meeting point for lunch is buckhead. No parking hassle. No expensive valet with a long line. Easy in and out. Great food. I've never had a bad meal here. Quiet enough to talk business at lunch. Extensive menu. Something for everyone on the menu.

    We went to the Buckhead location for Father's Day and had a wonderful experience. The food was excellent (artichoke crab dip, fillet sliders, ribeye with gorgonzola butter, crab and lobster cakes, and garlic mashed potatoes to die for!), and our weighter was great. The atmosphere was warm and comfortable and we enjoyed our booth by a window watching a storm blow by outside while we enjoyed our meal.

    My husband and I were on vacation celebrating our wedding anniversary. This was a perfect place! The food was delicious, the beer was awesome, and the ambiance was very cozy and romantic but not overly formal. We felt comfortable in our casual clothes. It was a little expensive but the steaks and crab and artichoke dip were well worth it! The service was good but our waitress was not very friendly. That did not spoil our wonderful meal though! I would definitely return and recommend to anyone.

    Gordon Biersch has a varied menu which makes it a nice stop for lunch, hors d'oeuvres after work with friends or dinner. They have good group space and the service is always good-very polite. Although some of the selections are not low in calories or low fat there are options on the menu for those seeking to limit either in their diet. GB is a better option to some of the other Buckhead lunch stops. On Maple Street, off Peachtree, and tucked behind a big box furnitre store, it is worth a stop.

    We had a very good dinner at here....most of the food is quite dependable. We wound up getting brewhouse platter as an app - great way to start things off with a group of people. Sliders, southwest rolls, garlic fries, and hummus...sooooo yummy! This is a great place to catch a game. Our server was very attentive. It was another great night at Gordon Biersch!

    We had the fixed price Valentine dinner for two. Our starter, the crab meat/artichoke dip, was very good. We both enjoyed the Bourbon glazed Salmon as an entree. My wife commented on the fact that we had two green sides (kale/quinoa, and green beans); that doesn't happen often, and both were good. The single dessert, Apple bread pudding, was more than we could eat, so we took the rest home with us. The portions were good sized, not too big.

    I was expecting better quality beer. They didn't have one of any of their selection that really resonated with me. And I'm not that hard to please honestly. Everyone else in our party seemed to enjoy the food but my particular dish was "meh" at best. I just feel let down. It's ok, as I said...could have just been that night.

    It started when the server came to our table almost ten minutes after we arrived. He then turned to the hostess who seated us and asked her 'Why? Why?' It turned out that he wanted to go home because he only had three tables. That's fine, but please don't ask her 'Why?' - not once, but twice in front of customers. Regarding the food, I believe it tasted like virtually any other restaurant serving American comfort food would be fine. The special lemonade was great. Perhaps, it would be more spectacular if the service would been more timely (35 minutes between appetizer and entrée plus lukewarm). I believe it just a off night.

    Welcomed by friendly staff. Seated in upper level; nice ambiance. Waiter nicely announced each step of what to expect next as he took our orders and managed delivery of each dish: Blue Crab & Artichoke Dip w/ crostinis, Housemade Churrasco Steak Tacos, and Bourbon Chicken & Grilled Shrimp. Dip started out tasty with perfectly grilled crostinis, however, some crab chunks were far too "crabby" as if under-cooked and became overwhelmingly fishy. Additionally, while the waiter had a strong good start, he failed after bringing the check and promptly disappearing for approximately 15 minutes without warning - being the last diners, we felt completely deserted, especially after I had to go in search of someone else to box up my take-a-ways.

    Gordon Biersch is a good choice for large parties, ease of access and parking, beer on tap and a large menu. Super easy book through Open Table. A friendly reminder call the day of. No hesitation adding to the guest list. Satisfying beers while we socialized at the bar. Our table was ready at 8:30 prompt. Our friendly server was quick, thorough, and helpful with recs. The food is superb and reasonably priced. No frustration when the party overflowed to 15. No restrictions or “attitude” for separate checks. The manager granted a strange request for more bones in a take home doggie bag. From start to end, the experience made the celebration memorable and pleasant. Thank you! Will definitely return for future gatherings, large or small!

    I'll start this off with noting that I'm a little ticked off that the hostesses didn't check me in on Open Table and thus I received a "no show" email. If you've gotten one before from a restaurant that you definitely went to, then you know how I feel. So I've been to Gordon Biersch before, but it was only for happy hour appetizers and drinks... the beers here are amazing by the way. My dad isn't a big beer drinker, and he loved the golden one (can't remember the name) that we both ordered. Seriously, great beer! We skipped appetizers this time and ordered entrees, which were great. I had the steak medallions, garlic mashed potatoes (make sure you order these), and the green beans. Excellent food, and our server was a big slow.

    A few weeks ago, I made a reservation for our family of 12 to celebrate my daughter's 20th birthday. We had a very rocky start with Jarvis as our waiter. It appeared that he may not have had experience with large parties. After expressing concern to management, Justin was reassigned as our waiter and he saved the evening! He was attentive and helpful with cake plates and such as I brought in a birthday cake. The food was good and everyone had an enjoyable time.
