Diner Reviews
  • "I am not a huge fan of beer, but I can always enjoy a glass here. They do not skimp on the food either, the fish tacos and the chicken stir fry are some of my favorites. They have both dining and bar seating with the two area separated to eliminate distractions between the two. This one is conveniently located in Mission Valley near lots of shopping."

  • "Great location in Mission Valley area of San Diego. We enjoyed meeting up with family from the north at this central location. We were seated promptly and had plenty of space at our table. The menu offers so many delicious choices; especially enjoyed the garlic seasoned French fries and the Fish and chips. A fun, upbeat place for a small or larger group. This choice made our Father's Day Sunday outing a treat for everyone. Thanks to the great, attentive wait staff."

  • "The waitresses are able to speak to the subtle changed between the brew options. The sweet potato fries were delicious and could've been dessert themselves with a brown sugar dusting and cream cheese frosting dip. The lobster/shrimp tacos were refreshing will definitely be my top choicw again next time!"

  • "I like the interior design of the restaurant, food wasn't good. Restaurant was to slow for us to not give a GOOD experience. I was expecting more, but that's only our opinion. Empty tables were dirty, floor was dirty, doesn't seen like staff wanted to be at work. At the end of the day, as a business owner/restaurant owner. your job is to provide the remarkable experience for everyone that walks in those doors."

  • "We came here for Mother's Day, and were pleasantly happy GB could sit our party of 13 without any hesitation whatsoever. Restaurant wasn't crowded at all (we got here at the open), but quickly filled up thru lunch. To our surprise, they had a brunch menu, and a special Mother's Day three course menu with several choices for each. The food is always good every time we visit, and it's been large groups lately. The fare is always hot when served, and our waitress was sharp, very attendant, and ALWAYS patient (THANKS!). Will be coming back for our next group visit!"

  • "The service was exceptional, and the staff as a whole was friendly. So much so, that the manager even came out to ensure everything was to our liking. I had the beer battered fish with garlic fries, and would say it was better than the majority of restaurants in San Diego--including those seafood restaurants found near the beach. My girlfriend had the seared ahi tuna and loved the quinoa pilaf. Our food was on the table in a very timely manner, which was impressive given that we ordered in the middle of the dinner rush. I'm not a beer expert, but for what it's worth, I sampled eight beers and enjoyed all but one--Schwarzbier, I believe. The Maerzen and Blonde Bock, however, were outstanding."

  • "Even though Gordon Biersch is a chain restaurant, the food and atmosphere was very good. Reminded me of the Albany Pump Station (a privately owned restaurant/brewery in upstate NY)"

  • "Great food and service. Our table was ready when we arrived to celebrate a family birthday. The menu had something for everyone. Their "shot glass" desserts are amazing and a great way to top off our dinner with a little something sweet. Great for small or large groups. Not too loud, we were able to visit and enjoy the evening. All in all a GREAT experience. We will be going back."

  • "Excellent menu with helpful waitress to guide through things to try (samplings) and where to focus for what we were looking for"
    Dined on 6/20/2010
  • "My wife and I were expecting a decent meal in a place that I considered not too 'upscale'. It turned out the steak was pretty good, and the fish was outstanding. The price was reasonable, not like the 'upscale' restaurants that are extremely overpriced. I would bet the 'upscale' food can't be any better than this. Plus, you can get a great beer or wine."

  • "Usually I like the food at Gordon Biersch, but this last experience was not up to my expectations. My friend and I both ordered the chicken and pear salad. The lettuce was limp, like it had been sitting too long, the dressing on the greens was bland and had no particularly flavor. The grilled chicken was good and flavorful but the salad part of the meal was boring. Yes, we could have, and perhaps should have, requested something else, but we were on a time limit and waiting for the kitchen to prepare another choice was not an option. On a positive note, the service (our server was Taryn) was excellent."

  • "I took two friends who had helped me out when I broke my ankle. We all enjoyed our lunch very much.The food was great. I made the reservation on opentable.com and our table was ready immediately. We had three different entrees and each of us raved about their meal. We will definitely go back again."

  • "The food was good and the servings were large. The cost is a little pricey for lunch - higher than I expected. I had the Jambalaya and it had a good kick to it - not for the faint of heart. It made me appreciate the bottomless beverages."

  • "At first we were seated against a wall at the end of the restaurant. Difficult to get in. Requested a change. Very difficult. Set the mood. We had a party of 7. It was apparent that seating was a problem to achieve. We had reservation and had to wait. But, there was no one in the restaurant and there was no table prepared in advance for our reservations. The empty tables remained empty for a good while. They could have pushed two together. We sat in a booth. Food was good. Experience Disappointing."

Other then that we didn't have to wait long at all there was no wait walked right in and got seated. A little disappointed in the choices of food but they had great beer and the pizza was pretty good."

  • "Met with a group. Appetizers were good and service was prompt. It was a bit noisy, but we expected that on a Friday evening."
    Dined on 4/2/2010
  • "I had a great time going here for my friend's birthday. The food was ok, decent price, but I don't think that it made an impression enough for me to return. The service however was excellent. I had to change my reservation time 2x since our group was running late. Nonetheless the hostesses did not haggle us about it and sat us right away. The server was also excellent. She tended to our needs patiently, even though some of our friends were getting a lil too tipsy and annoying. The ambience was nice and lively. Overall, it was a good experience, mostly for the great service."

  • "This was my first visit to this chain & it was disappointing. When I pulled up, a very large number of parking spaces in front of the restaurant were empty & reserved for "free" valet parking. After finding a spot about 12-14 rows of cars away, I entered the restuarant & was warmly greeted & seated promptly. However, it took a server about 10 minutes to stop at my table. By that time, I had already decided what I wanted & placed my order for the beef medallions with crab stuffed shrimp. When I recieved my meal, it was luke warm, the meat was on a wooden skewer & medium rare instead of medium, & the shrimp were miniscule with a small scoop of crab mixture on top. Since I had to catch a flight, I didn't have time to complain, but wish I did."

  • "Took my folks there for my dad's birthday. They have a great and expansive menu. We all had great meals and the service was fabulous. My favorite is the spicy cashew chicken. My wife likes all the meals served with their famous garlic fries. My son, a pesketarian, loves the fish & chips. And if you like mirco-brews, you'll enjoy their selection!"

  • "The menus was fairly extensive and the server was able to help the people in the group on special diets. Service was good and the smaller room was a nice change from the typical noisy restaurant. It gave our group a chance to talk without having to shout to each other. I would definitely return."

  • "The food was very good. If there was some way to control the noise, that would be great. We felt like we were shouting at each other to be heard. Despite the noise, will definitely come back again."

  • "With reservation, we got a table right away passing by patiently waiting people. Most of the reviewers commented on high noise level, but our table was away from everyone in the corner room with just a few tables; nice and quiet. Regarding the food, the well-done steak was excellent but the medium-cooked steak was rare and chewy. Wait staff was nice and friendly with ready smile. Plates and cloth napkins had a few spots. Overall, I'd give a satisfactory rating. I will come back again."

  • "I don't know what to say - just wanted to meet with some friends for lunch and couldn't find a thing on the menu that is vegetarian - even all of the salads had meat on them! I know, I could simply order without the meat but why would I even go back to a restaurant that has a menu that out of touch with my views of nutrition - sorry kids - FAIL!"
