    The restaurant did not have enough servers for the crowd that came in on a hot day after a Georgia Tech home game. Our server did a great job, but had too many tables to cover. We had plenty of time to relax.

    Whether you're in the mood for slider appetizers or a full-fledged 3-course meal, the menus are extremely diverse. One of my favorite downtown restaurants, it's always hard to make a selection. The garlic fries are not to be missed, no matter what else you order!

    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.

    A group of 30 people were screaming to the top of their lungs singing stupid drinking songs and the manager let them get away with it. We couldn't even hear ourselves talk at our table. It was awful. They need to fire that manager and put someone who will keep control of the place.

    Dined on 7/12/2014
    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.

    We chose this restaurant because it was near Fox Theatre and we were from out of town. Great choice. Quick walk to the theatre, food choices were large, so no matter what we were in the mood for, they had something. The portions for entrees were huge, so we went with chef specials, far more foodie and interesting as well as smaller. Brewed beers were well made and rounded. No huge outliers making the whole experience great.

    Had lunch here waiting for a matinee at The Fox Theater. Have never been here, found it by looking it up in Open Table. What a find. Very nice ambiance, service excellent (server made great recommendations) and the food was fabulous. We shared mahi-mahi tacos, a chicken with bacon/arugula flatbread pizza, and the oh my goodness bread pudding...YUM! Also has the beer sampler where they serve 6 different mini-mugs of beer which all were quite tasty to me! Will definitely go there again when visiting Atlanta.

    It was PROM night for some area schools, so just want to put it into perspective. However, when you ask your server for some silverware and they state "I don't know, I will try to find some - we ran out half an hour ago' - what????? How are you supposed to dine at an establishment with no silverware? Honestly, I am understanding of large parties overtaking a restaurant, but to have an attitude with the other customers is not acceptable. The food was wonderful, I loved the patio and our server's attitude turned for the better as the meal progressed (most likely since 'tip time' was approaching), but I am really disappointed by how were were initially greeted. Questions about the menu were also answered with frustration/attitude.

    I have dined in Gordon Biersch locations in many places I have lived, and always find the service friendly and attentive. The Midtown location is no exception. There's a wide variety on the menu, with many good items. I particularly like their small bites, incl. seared ahi tuna (appetizer or salad), sliders and burger. A few dishes I would skip, such as their garlic fries, which are a garlic-overload, even for garlic lovers. I also find their marinated/teriyaki steak dishes to be heavy handed with marinade to the point where the beef flavor is overpowered. Their beers are good, as you would expect from a brew-pub, if somewhat limited in variety. I find the wine options decent and cocktails well made. This location has nice outside seating.

    I went to this restaurant a few days ago and most likely will be my last, the over priced food doesn't match the quality. The only good thing was the sweet potatoes we had for appetizer. We ordered a flat bread but instead we got a greasy pizza that looked like it came from the frozen section of a grocery store. We also had the beef medallions, which we ordered rare, but came out so well done that we couldn't bite into it. The asparagarus that came with it had little to no flavor. The waitress never came to check if the food arrives ok, reason why we didn't return it. She came to the table about 15 minutes later and said "looks like you guys were not hungry" which I reserved any comment. On top of all that we have to pay $3 to park.

    Looked forward to dinning with friends at Gordon Biersch , unfortunately the experience did not meet my expectations. The service was ok, but not anywhere near great. We had to ask for too many things where the server should have asked us if we wanted the usual items. The quality of the food was below average. The chicken was "rubbery" in one order. My fish was overcooked & dry; the batter was too thick, more batter than fish. The the entire experience was very disappointing.

    What a great choice after a shopping trip at a very busy IKEA. While waiting for my purchase to be picked and delivered to me, I opened OPENTABLE to decide where to go. We made quick reservations at GB and what a great choice. The beer sampler hit the spot for my bother-in-law who was dragged along in our shopping expedition! There was a great burger, chicken sandwich and salad chosen at the table and we loved them all equally!! The garlic fries were superb!

    I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. It was a really nice place. It was also great that there were pool tables on the second floor. That's a nice addition because it gives the patrons something else to do and they are not right next to other people that may be eating or talking loudly. My server was mediocre at best and she gave me the wrong amount. She owed me some changed but instead she decided to round down to the nearest dollar so I was short. Other than that, it was a good time overall. Nice place for lunch.

    Gordon Biersch is my favorite go-to location for business meetings. I know that we will have ample room to spread out and that the food will be amazing. Our server, Anthony, was attentive and made sure that we were comfortable since we were there for several hours. I recommend the restaurant to many of my clients for Rehearsal Dinners, Bachelor Parties, Engagement Parties or any other special occasion. I can't wait for my next visit!

    This restaurant is a safe pick for families and large groups with a wide range of tastes. Food is good enough and there is something for everyone on the menu. Due to location, etc. the food and beverages are definitely not cheap. The pour on a glass of wine is pretty stingy. It's a decent place to go if you need to get dinner before going to an even downtown; easy to get in and out of with valet parking, etc.

    We had a 730 show at the Fox, ate here at 545 and got to the show in plenty of time. The turkey burger (not your average turkey burger!), lobster tacos, and garlic fries were all deelish. The Czech Pilsner was very good. Recommend for pre-show especially if you have children with you and don't want anything too overwhelming for them.
