- Delicious CrabcakesHisLoveEvangDined on 8/26/2014Your seafood was fresh and filling. I love the crab cakes!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- great place to meet for lunchAmeliaDined on 8/25/2014I always choose this as a meeting spot for lunch in downtown DC. Nice friendly staff, great menu selections and pretty environment. Perfect!Special Features:
- Mediocre Brew PubDaveyVIPDined on 8/23/2014For some reason I was expecting craft beers and upscale gastro-pub food. The beer was decent but nothing special and the food was very ordinary pub grub. Partner ordered the fish & chips which seemed safe choice but after one bite opted not to eat it. They did the right thing and took it off the check. My steak was decent and cooked properly, the derive was pleasant and efficient. I did like the setting, decor and location. I would suggest this place for the tourists looking for a place to re-fule or hang out between sight seeing.Special Features:
- Love those garlic friesTastyTooDined on 8/22/2014I heard a lot about the famous garlic fries and I was not disappointed!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Place!!Nicole12345Dined on 8/20/2014This is a bar and brewery that's great do grabbing a drink or two and one of the few places in DC that stays open late. My friend and I had a great time. The food and atmosphere was inviting. It's definitely a place I will continue to frequent.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- JohnOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/11/2014Didn't get to eat there. Made reservation at GB at 1st and M street in DC but they don't take reservations so you automatically gave me a reservation at a GB blocks away. Ate somewhere else Finally got table at GB at 9:30 PM. Waited 45 minutes for a cup of coffee. Was never waited on. open Table and Gordon Biersch suck.
- Has ImprovedWillieVIPDined on 8/9/2014We've been to GB many times over the years. The past two times we've been recently, the food has really been outstanding. The filet medallions on this visit were excellent (although the server indicated that "they're not like what the menu says"). Excellent mashed potatoes. The clincher though the last two visits has been the apple bread pudding dessert. The serving is HUGE - plenty for two to share and is one of the best bread puddings I've had anywhere. Save room for it. Service can still be a bit spotty with empty drink glasses and disappearing servers at times. Love the old bank building architecture although it can be very noisy with all the hard surfaces. If you haven't been to GB lately, try it. It has definitely improved.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fast and tasty lunchDCDinerVIPDined on 8/7/2014I came here for lunch and was very happy with my experience. The veggie burger was very tasty and the service was great. I will come back.Special Features:
- Always tasty, interesting foodSPALDined on 8/2/2014Great service and attention to diners! Although it's a chain, we always like going to GB for its interesting food that is prepared with care and attention. I had the Miso Mahi with kale quinoa salad, which was delicious. My husband had the Cajun Pasta which he has had before and likes a lot. There's always something even a picky eater can find to eat. I've never had a bad or mediocre dish there.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- trip to D.C.luvdcDined on 8/1/2014We have gone to Gordan Biersch at home in Las Vegas. The atmosphere was great. Felt like home. Everyone was great. Our waiter could not have made it more enjoyable. I would tell everyone who visits D.C. to go there.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- BlahMobymotoDined on 8/1/2014The service was good, but the food was not worth it. My garlic fries arrived cold, and the server promptly replaced them with another plate of cold fries.
- Great Lunch with good friendstanthemanDined on 7/29/2014I've been going to GB in DC for YEARS! I'm a regular. Mostly lunches, some dinners (before a play, before a hockey or BB game @ Verizon Center). I've had mostly great experiences there . Last Tues., Ernesto, our Server, made it a highly successful lunch. I'm very high maintenance. Ernesto handled me very easily! Took all my special requests, variations, substitutes, quirks, etc., & took care of every last one! I was & still am very impressed. I wish all my Servers were as good as Ernesto! Keep up the great work! Also, Mr. Rice stopped by to say Hello & ensure all was good.Special Features:
- Convenient but that's about ittartegninVIPDined on 7/26/2014We were in downtown siteseeing with out of town friends, and this branch of the restaurant was in the right place at the right time. We have had decent experiences at this and other branches into he past, but my husband and I had the same reaction this time - not really worth going again. The place was clean but felt dirty, and the food was ok, but not great, and the prices are a bit cheeky for what you get. The beer is good, though :)
- Decent for the most partkejedinerVIPDined on 7/24/2014Great place to have a quick, informal business lunch. The garlic fries are superb when they're hot - most of the time they're only moderately warm when you get them. I ordered the asparagus side dish (not too many good options for vegans other than a salad with no cheese or a veggie burger) and it was over cooked - quite a bit of charring but still reasonably edible and a side luke-warm of garlic fries. The server was nice but it took a while to get our food. She was on the floor servicing customers and she was attentive so it's not like she disappeared. I'd say the areas to improve are to get food out faster and hotter and offer something better for vegans other than a veggie burger (many contain eggs). I enjoy GB and will return.Special Features:
- Great food...classydinerDined on 7/23/2014This wasn't my first visit to the restaurant. Each visit is always enjoyable. The menu has many delicious items to choose from. Love love love the garlic fries. The atmosphere and ambiance is great. Noise level, well to loud for me because the music volume is too high. It makes people talk too loud like you're competing with the music so you can be heard by your friends. But I'll be back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Food was good, service was okay.MASHVIPDined on 7/9/2014Service was okay because the server we had was not knowledgable about the menu because she was new. She was also slow, but again, I think becasue she was new. Thank you.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not so greatluv2eatDined on 7/5/2014Brought our out-of-town guests to this location as a special night out. Our server was terrible, slow and non-existent after the food was delivered. The plates were hot but the food was luke warm. Our beer took over 10 mins to be delivered to the table and the server never came back for additional drink orders. We ordered a couple mini desserts and the waiter described them as much larger portions then they were. The cheesecake in particular was terrible and had no taste.Special Features:
- Good FoodHawaiianFoodFanaticDined on 7/4/2014Quick service. Excellent menu selection. Great food.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great mealWillieVIPDined on 7/4/2014Food was much better than on recent previous visits. Had the Kobe mushroom swiss burger which was outstanding. Friend had the veggie burger which was also rated excellent. GB can be very noisy due to the interior surfaces so request a quiet table if you want to carry on a normal conversation. Service was excellent and very friendly.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Californiaburger!HungryVIPDined on 7/1/2014TheCalifornia burger is terrific ! Also liked bratwurst appetizer, on great pretzel rolls.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Noisy, but quick serviceBarbaraDined on 6/25/2014We were late and needed to make a curtain at a nearby theater -- the waitress was very understanding, and made sure we were on time. However, it's very noisy.
- Brilliant concept and executionPreferLaBergerieDined on 6/21/2014An utter delight! The food is brilliant, the wait staffer was attentive, energetic, knowledgeable, and overwhelmed us with her perfect yet unobtrusive service.Special Features:
- Good food, convenient locationjaredDined on 6/20/2014This is our usual go-to dinner place when seeing a show or game at the Verizon Center. The service is usually quick, if not overly friendly. Food is decent and the menu has enough options for everyone. I wouldn't choose this as a romantic night-out, but better for a group of friends.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DisappointingRWFavoriteVIPDined on 6/18/2014I had the artisanal grilled cheese sandwich. I don't know how you can mess up a grilled cheese sandwich, but it was disappointing. The ambience and service were fine, but I was not pleased with my meal.
- Early DinnerBanoojonVIPDined on 6/15/2014We had early dinner on Sunday at Gordon Biersch in DC. Everything was fine except Apple Cider Coleslaw that was just terrible. I mentioned that to our server and she said that they are popular for their bear! What is that suppose to mean? I asked her to tell the Chef's not to make that Coleslaw anymore.Special Features:
- could be betterNotformeVIPDined on 6/6/2014I needed a place with a large menu since I had a serious carnivore and a vegetarian dinning with me. The food fit the bill. As always, very good. Requested outdoor table since inside is always super loud. The waiter was friendly but very inattentive. Took forever to take drink order, bring the drinks, take food order, or refill water glasses. I know it's a tourist stop, but I'm not a tourist. Won't be returning anytime soon.Special Features:
- Try Something DifferentStephanieDined on 6/6/2014I have been going to GB for a few years now and typically I get a burger. The burgers and fries are awesome! But I am trying to break out and try new things on their menu. On this visit I tried the CBLT - chicken, bacon, lettuce, and tomato with avacado mayo. First, it's a nice size sandwich, something you can really sink your teeth into and doesn't fall apart. The sourdough bread is toasted and just thick enough to hold all that yumminess (is that a word?). Bacon, avacado - need I say more. It's a good combo and with the signature cole slaw (also something I don't usually get but then again I'm breaking out) it was a nice change for something different. So break out, look at the menu, try something new! I did and liked it.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Lunch Spotdcrok15VIPDined on 6/3/2014Located near to our office, we frequently bring guests here for lunch. The options on the menu are great and our guests are normally satisfied. The service can be slow and it's tough to get in and out of the restaurant in an hour; so if you are on a time crunch, be sure to let you server know. I would recommend as a place to eat and will be returning.Special Features:
- Surprisingly goodOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 5/31/2014We stopped here for our last night in DC and it turned out to be the best meal of the trip. Some of the other higher rated restaurants were just barely average so this was a nice surprise. Drinks were great, prices very reasonable, nice flavors, good service. No complaints here.Special Features:
- Still too loud!KevinDined on 5/26/2014GB has some great beers, but it's too loud to carry on a conversationSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food, great service!LFoxDined on 5/23/2014We are visiting from NYC and needed a great place to eat with two children (girls, 7 & 11) while still maintaining a nice dinner ambience. We found it in Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant. The scene was energetic with a well planned dinning round centered around a bar on one side, wall to wall windows on the other side and a quieter side around the corner. Food and service was excellent. We definitely recommend.Special Features:
- Great beerGreatDined on 5/22/2014Enjoyed This Restaurant Took My Brother In Law And His Wife For His 70The Birthday And They Loved It. The Brewery Beers Are Great And Always Try The Seasonal Beer If You Ever Go. Oh And Can't Forget The Garlic Fries They Are The Best!!!!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great place to eat!DCEaterVIPDined on 5/16/2014I came here with a friend to eat on a late evening. The food was excellent. They also have a great variety of food on the menu. I would strongly consider returning!
- Good restaurantFranDined on 5/14/2014Since we were between activities at Ford's Theater, the restaurant worked very well for us. We had a reservation, however, the five gentlemen who entered ahead of us did not. The person at the reservations desk went to look for a table for them and left us standing there for at least 10 minutes. Finally, when he did not return, a waiter stepped up and seated us. Otherwise, the food and beer were very good.Special Features:
- Everything great except serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/12/2014All the reviews I read were exactly right about service-we got seated, did not give us all the menues, a waiter came by said he would get water and be back "in a sec"...it was 10 minutes he came back with water....then we ordered drinks and apps...10 minutes to be back with drinks. So each time we decided we needed to order for what we wanted in the next 30 minutes. He seemed stressed and bothered. But another waiter stopped and we loved him...the apps for happy hour are small, and the garlic fries were cold, but still good. The kobe black and blue burger was great.....the stir fry great, the cobb flatbread amazing, and the turkey meatloaf excellent.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- GeneVIPDined on 5/9/2014We go to G-B after games quite often. The waiter was overwhelmed. Forgot the orders three times. Brought the wrong wines. Didn't bring one drink. Forgot to bring water after couple of requests. Very nice fellow, but couldn't keep up. We were there late and the food tasted as though it had been cooked much earlier and just warmed up. Not a good experience, but we will go back. Wish it had been better.Special Features:
- underwhelming food, good locationDCdinerDined on 5/8/2014Gordon Biersch has a good location, nice interior and outside cafe, and a gluten-free menu. The noise level is pretty high, so quiet conversation can be difficult. And, as for the food, it is okay...just okay.Special Features:

- Not as good as usualjacquie812VIPDined on 5/2/2014I have celiac disease so was ordering from the GF menu. I specifically requested blue cheese chips from the GF menu (in fact pointed that out on the menu) which said to order w/out blue cheese sauce. They came with the sauce and the server said he didn't realize I wanted GF and sorry, but they were now out of the chips; I sent them back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Fun and Good FoodLiv2EatDined on 4/26/2014We made this our post- Nats game dinner and we were not disappointed. The restaurant was very accommodating as we grew from a six top to a nine top about an hour before our reservation. Service and food were excellent and the beer selections is outstanding!Special Features:
