  • Going down hill...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    This particular restaurant seems to be going downhill. Granted we were there after a Tech game, but that should be their opportunity to shine. The beer selection and quality isn't changing with the exploding 'craft beer' selections in the area, nor with other brew pubs. The food quality seems to be dropping making it overpriced bar food. The turkey burger my wife ordered was packed with onions.. no reference to onions in the menu description. They did take it off the ticket, but the manager never came by to talk to us. The waitress was doing a great job. We sensed she was new. but was working hard to take care of us and other tables. Kudos to her.

    Great Midtown location. Valet parking was reasonable. My parents and I eat here after Cirque du Soleil at Atlantic Station. We made reservations through Open Table so were seated and by passed the line waiting for a table. Laid back atmosphere, excellent service, good food, and execellent hand crafted beers. We started with the Beer sampler. My favorite beer was the Schwarzbier which is a delicious dark lager with a coffee finish. My parents had the bourbon chicken and grilled shrimp with garlic mashed potatoes. I had the bourbon grilled salmon with the sweet potato fries. Both dinners were very tasty. We finished the dinner with the dessert sampler.

    I usually enjoy my visits to this restaurant but the service lacked the usual quality this time. This was mainly due to our group ordering an appetizer and having the entrees show up before the appetizer (which we then declined). We then had a visit from someone who appeared to be the manager (but didn't identify themselves) asking about our service so we told them the truth which didn't seem to go over well with the waiter who had a change of disposition thereafter. Also, my chicken entree was rather tough to chew.

    Came in with party of 4 for an early dinner prior to show at Fox Theater. Seated promptly. Broad menu with great options for everyone including kids. Food was excellent and service was spot on. Did not have time to sample microbrews but I will next time for sure. Overall, great casual dining in a fun upbeat atmosphere. Will definitely come here again.

    We were immediately seated and although they were busy, it was not loud and we could easily talk to each other. The waiter came by and was abrupt and curt. He never made eye contact or looked our way. He took our order but never introduced himself until he was walking away so we never caught it. The food was delivered in a respectable amount of time but again no eye contact. It was just set on the table and he walked away. The greens on the salad were old and wilted. The Bourbon glazed chicken and shrimp was very good. After we were done, the waiter cleared the table and then showed up with the check. He never asked if we wanted any dessert which we did. In the past it was much better here. Hope they are not going down hill.

    We had received gift cards to Gordon's. Normally we do not go to downtown Atlanta to eat. It was a nice lunch and my husband enjoyed their beer that they brew there. Waiter was very pleasant and very attentive. Food was good and even if we did not have gift cards, food was reasonably priced and very good. Would recommend to anyone who wants a different type of scenery and good food.

    Went there for dinner prior to a show at the Fox. Someone came and took our drink order relatively quickly and brought them back. We then were left for quite some time with no one coming to our table. Finally flagged someone down to get the waitress who took our drink order, who acted shocked that no one had come over to assist us. There was obviously some sort of miscommunication as to who was supposed to take care of our table and we were left sitting there for about 25 minutes. Even once we got her attention, service was sub par at best. Had to leave the check to another member of the party so we could rush to get to the show.

    After waiting 45 minutes to receive my food my order was completely wrong. It was not a mistake as if i asked for onions and received onions---i ordered chicken and rice and received a turkey burger. The waitress returned to kitchen and yet again supplied me with the wrong order---this time a beef burger with chicken---well at least it was a burger this time. Overall a bad experience! Needless to say i will not return for dinner

    The good service and relatively fun atmosphere was not enough to raise the rating on this overall experience above two stars. The food needs attention - from purchasing to execution. We hope for our neighborhood that someone at this restaurant will do a deep dive into their various processes, and that should start and end with an analysis of flavor.

    This brewery is a bit of a drive but well worth it. We meet friends from all over the greater ATL area. G Biersch did something for our gorup of 14 that no one has ever done. They gave us another table to hold our birthday gifts. And the beer is great.

    This was our second visit so we had high expectations as our first first was AMAZING. The disappointment was there was special limited menu do to a community parade that was being held on the same block. The information provide to us upon arriving was that the full menu would be available once the parade ended. However, that turned out not to be the case. Also, our server was OK.

    Unbelievable. 4 of us for dinner before going to Fox (we're locals). After placing orders, server returned to tell everyone at the table that at least one of the items they ordered was unavailable. This went on and on... server returned to tell me that my 5th choice was also not available. It was 4pm on a Sun. afternoon and they were out of steak, sourdough bread, cheeses, fish, burgers, and F'n cranberry juice at the full bar and more? Candid camera? Nope. Manager came to table to apologize, (it was happening to everyone) and actually said "this is no way to run a restaurant is it?". I think they must be going out of business. Shame on the management for putting the staff in this position. It was a horrible joke of an experience.

    We went to GB before a Fox event (it's about a 5-10 min walk from the Fox). We were seated right away. Our server was training but did a fine job. The menu was good for the tween with us as well. The garlic fries they are famous for were just "meh" to me. But my grilled chicken and avocado sandwich was GREAT and the fruit bowl that came with it was huge and the fruit fresh and good. It was a little too dark (had a hard time reading the menu). But overall it was great and I totally recommend.

    I have used this site for entertaining out-of-town visitors for years, having first been taken there by a dear friend who had a condo a block away, before I had moved to the area. It was quite a surprise to learn that a late, late reservation and food service were available. I have been there often enough with different guests to have become recognizable to some of the wait staff, and am delighted by the congeniality of this development.

    The veggie burger was mushy, tasted bad, and was sent back, but other food was good. The restaurant was not busy and service incredibly slow! The waitress could not answer questions about the menu, did not know that salads are served before the meal, was very slow in all she did, got the check wrong, and just seemed to lack interest in us and her job. In other restaurants, if food is sent back, the manager usually comes to the table to apologize and offers to comp the entrée. Not here. I went to this place because of its location. I will not return!

    Love, love the atmosphere here! Even though I'm not a beer drinker, I think this place is a neat hangout. Our group of 9 thoroughly enjoyed our meals (fish/chips, BBQ pork, pasta dish, shrimp tacos-to name a few). However, the server was not a good listener and less than attentive. We had to look for him more than one during the afternoon (4:00 pm on Saturday, so not busy at all). I will definitely be going back to enjoy the food and cool vibe!

    Enjoyed our Dinner and a show combination from Fox Theater. We have dined previously at the Buckhead Atlanta location. I enjoy the beers, my wife enjoys a vegetarian friendly menu. We can always find good food and above average service at your restaurants. We liked the idea that it is within walking distance to the Fox Theater. Reservations were not really needed, we were late afternoon on Sunday, not exactly a busy time, but fit our show schedule. Only complaint was that we were given an average table in a very empty restaurant, but I didn't ask to change so not a big deal. Food was excellent, server was attentive, and beer was cold….a good start to our evening.

    We went to GB to watch the Belmont Stakes before heading over to the Fox to see Evita. Ordered 2 vodka Collins which were not drinkable as they were so sour. Ordered Pinot Grigio only to find out they had only a half a glass in the whole restaurant of any brand, completely out. My wife ordered a peperroni pizza and I had the Tuscan Chicken pasta. Both were only fair. The Mgr did offer to pay for any drink they had in the house but we already lost our appetite. We will not return, to many other good restaurants in the district to visit.

    This was our first time going to GB. I was impressed by the variety on the menu. Everyone in our party was pleased with their entrees. The service was great. We went there before a show at the Fox Theatre. We had a 6:00 reservation. That was plenty of time to enjoy dinner and walk to the Fox for our 8:00 show. We would definitely eat there again.

    We are Fox theater season ticket holders and you get a card with perks on it. GB is one of the restaurants with a coupon. The food is always good so we always go there. There is always a $5 coupon in the Fox play bill for GB too. This is the first time our waitress did not honor both card and coupon. I know the season ticket card is a special perk prepaid so I was a bit miffed that the manager was being stingy this one time. Oh well. I will go back. It could be the difference in having a waiter vs a waitress. We were a group of women.
