    I started going to Gordon Biersch in Palo Alto 25 years ago and it was a favorite place of mine. When they opened in The Shops at Park Lane I was excited. This location was much better than my other Dallas experience. The food was hot, fresh, great menu choices, and easy. We'll be back

    Slow service today. The servers really should do a better job of anticipating and even eagle-eyeing from afar. Drink/bar service was slow to our table....Mahi taco app is awesome. Love the apple bread pudding (whiskey sauce on the side) and had a burger this time. Good but VERY greasy.

    Overall my small group had a good time. The craft beers are very good and they offer a great selection. The food was average, wasn't bad just wasn't memorable. Personally, my steak was cooked correctly but was not a good cut of meat (tough in many sections). I will visit again and hopefully a different menu choice on my part will change my perspective.

    Gordon Biersch has changed their menu and I as well as my guests were very disappointed. Many of the popular items have been removed. The section of the menu that was for dieting with calorie information and was on the lighter side has been removed. I find this very strange since other restaurants, even fast food giant McDonalds are adding a limited calorie menu section. When I asked the waitress why the menu was cut back she said it was to cut down on food waste. So instead of using their computers which track orders/purchases, and determine a run rate of dishes and thus order for those dishes based on sales, Gordon Biersch decided to instead pull available dishes from the dining guest. Will not be back. until old menu is back

    Great value for food that would appeal to a wide variety of clientele. In house made beers that has great flavor also with a good value in different sizes. Food service was very fast with a front server that took your order, got your beverages and a back server that got your food from the kitchen. Very busy, but very organized that handled the volume. Very friendly and a very professional staff. I would return at a later date.

    I've eaten here many times and its usually very good. This time we got a different beer than we ordered. Kids meals were fine but Husband and I got cold steaks and cold side. Wait staff WAS awesome but the second lot they brought out wasn't much better and the got my order wrong. I ate it anyway because at that point my kids had finished and we had other things still to do.

    Gordon Biersch is a solid member of the Legacy restaurant community. The food is good and fairly priced, but this is not foodie heaven either. The server was friendly and answered our menu-related questions quite well. The noise level was fine. The decor is basic and reasonably attractive. The beer was brewed on premise and pretty darn good. This is a great place to take a group for a comfortable time. There is something for everyone on the menu and a visit won't break the bank. On the other hand, if you are looking for that elusive transcendent food experience or like to eat on the culinary cutting edge, this is not the place for you. GB's offers comfort food, 21st Century edition. I'll be back, and happily so.

    I was excited to celebrate a friend's birthday. On my reservation I requested a table close to the back knowing we would want to talk and hear each other. To my disappointment we were placed right by the front window at a very small table for our party. We were squished between two other parties. It was very hard to hear each other. Our server, Adam, was awesome! He took our criticism in stride, helped us rearrange a table to give us more room, kept our glasses full, and empathized with our situation. We enjoyed our time, but I don't think comments or requests are viewed by the restaurants.

    We have been a fan of GB's for several years...but we are do not like the new menu. The new menu eliminated many of the items that we go to GB's to have, such as the tapas appetizer, the BBQ chicken pizza and the pasta dishes. The Garlic fries are great but were disappointed we were not able to order the other items we love. If the new menu is permanent we will not be coming as often.

    We have been to this restaurant before and liked it a lot. Since then they had changed the menu and the steak I ordered tasted like rubber. The service was horrible! We sat in the bar so we could watch a football game and our server would take over 15-20 to get our drinks and we would end up asking other servers to place our orders or find her. Awful!

    Our dinner at GB was good. New York steak was of good quality and the meatloaf was flavorful. Our only complaint was that they have significantly reduced the size of the menu and several of our favorite items are no longer available, such as the pulled pork sandwich, Mahi Mahi sandwich, BBQ pork chop and BBQ Chicken, steak brochettes, and Asian ribs. Without the same variety of menu items, we will be less likely to choose GB in the future.

    We werer disappointed that the happy hour menu had changed. The $5 apetizers use to be a big hit with us. Our server was nervous and and disappeared for long periods of time. We started out with a female server and end up with a male server, my experience in the past is that female servers pay more attention to their quests. Other than that it was fun! Thank you!

    The food was generally good, not great. However, the bourbon glazed salmon was surprisingly good. It was extremely load inside the restuarant. So loud that my son had a hard time understanding me and he was sitting across the table. The service was very poor. It really wasn't all the waitresses fault. She was also attempting to manage my table, several other small groups and one group that probably had 18 people. There was just way she could handle it all. The restuarant should have recognized that and assigned additional wait staff to help her cover.

    We went to celebrate a birthday. Party of 6. I found the food to be very plain. Not enough for sharing. My dish came with rice as a side and it was just like the rice I get at a fast food chinese restaurant. The coffee that we ordered with dessert was cold. The only good thing I can say is that the service was good and the dessert was good as well. Other than that I won't be back! What we spent on the bill for the meal was not worth it. I would not recommend this restaurant.

    Normally we avoid Shops of Legacy because of the lack of parking. But at the urging of friends, we came to Gordon Beirsch's on a Saturday night. We were given a heads up on the best place to park. Although on the top floor of the parking garage we found a spot and then headed to the restaurant. We had some pot stickers, salads and flatbread. All were fairly tasty and we would come back again and try some other menu items.

    I have been to Goron Biersch Brewery in a number of locations. While the table service was good the hostess staff was not on their game that day. I had made a reservation and part of our party arrived first. Even though the reservation was in my name when I told the hostess I had a reservation and that part of my party was already there, she checked the list and was emphatic that I had neither a reservation or that my party was there. She consulted a second person who agreed. Finally a third hostess came up and said my name ~ I said yes and she took me immediately to my table. Normally finding your lunch mates is not a problem except it was a business lunch with someone I had never met.
