Plenty of service staff, but sometimes a little too attentive. Inviting decor, tempting dishes, fairly reasonable prices. Of course, tasty microbrews available. Overall a very welcome addition to the ballpark area.

WNY GB is Excellent
This was a Lunch event with three long time friends that have not been able to meet since last November. This was the perfect spot to dine and catch-up. GB was superb in handling the reservation. We will use Open Table for our next gathering.

A welcome addition to the hood! Seems a little understaffed but it was a busy Friday night and the place was packed. Food is great. Lots of variety. Artichoke hearts terrific.

Thumbs Up for PreGame Dining
It's so nice to have a nice establishment such as this in the Ballpark neighborhood. With advance reservations, we arrived 2 hours before gametime and were seated promptly and offered drinks and a varied menu. Shared Southwest Eggrolls (a favorite app!), my spouse had a chicken, gravy and mashed potatoes dish that he raved about, and I had the pear and Gorgonzola salad, which I found a bit 'oily.' (note to kitchen staff: I suggest you reevaluate the dressing for this salad, and also make sure that the pieces of the pear 'core' are trimmed). Service was friendly, attentive and fun, and we finished our meal with enough time for a leisurely short stroll to Nationals Park. Good beer selection and a tasty Sangria.

Eat here regularly & the food
Eat here regularly & the food is consistently good... Service is some of the best in the city. If its not right, they'll make it right & probably comp the meal just for not getting it right. Great place for those of us who live on the hill.

Best of the Best
This is the place to be from hanging out with your friends to having dinner with the family!

Fun at GB's
NW DC no longer has the monopoly of microbreweries and happening fun places to eat and people watch. Samplers of beer for the uninitiated, great appetizers - try the Tapas with flatbread or the Crab and Artichoke dip. Good serving sized that wont ruin the appetite for the entree. The Kobe beef black and blue burger with fruit salad was my choice. After substituting blue cheese crumbles for the blue cheese sauce and getting a perfect medium rare burger - I was we'll satisfied. Great place for locals of the waterfront neighborhood.

Great location - Great Food
I have always gone to the 9th Street, NW location, but when I learned that they had a new location at Navy Yard, I suggested this location to my office mate for our working lunch and they loved the restaurant, the food (very tasty), the quantity, and great ambience.

The pace was off. The starter came after the salad. The dinner came one minute after the starter. Who's running the kitchen?

Good lunch spot
this was my first visit to this Gordon Biersch, but it was a good first impression. They seated us quickly, the service was very good, and the food was delicious. I'll be back.

Glad to have them here. Food
Glad to have them here. Food & service is ON point. One small item is the food sits on the slide sometimes just a little too long making service temperature a little dubious. No one wants really good food served luke worm.

Convenient for lunch with colleagues or friends. Huge menu - fairly consistent. Great happy hour specials.

good food near Nats stadium
Good food, beer and drinks. Should be great before Nats games.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was a great choice. All members of the party enjoyed it. There was one exception. One of the members of our party ordered the daily special beer, and he waited and waited and it never came. We finally got our waitresses attention to ask where it was and she went to check. She then came back and told us they didn't have it because they were between seasons. She offered him something else. She was very nice, but someone should have come to tell him that from the beginning. The rest of us had finished our drinks way before he ever got his.

A lot better second time...
First time I went the service was spotty. However, this time everything was quick and delicious. Perfect place and atmosphere.
Also - finding parking was easy!!
See ya soon

Good food but a bit overpriced..
Great place for an up and coming neighborhood although there is room for improvement. Most of their food is pretty good; seems fresh and tasty, at least for vegetarians. Their veggie burger is really good and quite a big portion too. Veggie flatbread is good as well. Garlic fries are awesome!! Although the cesar salad I had this time was tasteless and disappointing. Beer selection is ok, but needs more variety. Staff seems untrained and inconsistent although friendly. Twice, our bill was incorrect and took forever to correct something simple. Noise is what you'd expect in a place like this, energetic vibrant bar scene. Pricing is competitive but a bit overpriced. Overall a nice find, but needs improvement.

What a Find!
The neighborhood near Nationals Park has long been in need of a cool spot that offers good food, good brews, and proximity to the ball park. Much to our delight we discovered it last Saturday. GB offers their own seasonal home brews, along with a wide variety of fantastic food - everything from amazing garlic fries to munch on, to fantastic entrees. There's also a delicious selection of lower-calorie entrees too. The Bread Pudding dessert, recommended by our excellent server Darius, is a must-have. We asked to see the manager before we hurried off, just so we could pass along our compliments about the excellent service we received. We WILL be coming back to this wonderful and welcoming restaurant!

This location is always good for a special lunch -- definitely crowded before a NATS game, but location location location.
Beer and food are excellent.

I was quite impressed with
I was quite impressed with this restaurant. It was my first time eating at a Gordon Biersch and I definitely will come again. The Brewhouse Chicken entree was amazing! I would definitely order it again. We finished the night with the mini dessert tasters to split between the four of us. All four were fantastic.
A good place to meet friends and to make new friends. Beautiful restaurant!

Busy and good!
Lucky for us we had made a reservation a month before the Paul McCartney concert. There was a long line of people waiting to get in when we arrived, we checked in and were seated right away. The place was packed but the service was friendly and the food was good, a good variety. We would go back if we are in the area again.

My girlfriends and I I loved
My girlfriends and I I loved the look and feel from the time we came in the door. The atmosphere was relaxing and there was a nice mix between families, the bar patrons and girls day out gatherings. A little something for everyone under one roof.
We tried a number of different items on the menu from appetizers to entrees so we could all sample from one another and the drinks were amazing.
Our server Kenan was helpful in our selections from food as well as our beverages. Service was attentive and not over-barring but everyone was very friendly in assisting.
Not only will you have a great time here, but the food portions are filling and this will be our monthly meeting spot.

Favorite Food Item Not Available
I was hosting a get together with some out-of-town friends from college. I bragged about the lobsterand lump crabcakes all week. 1/2 of the party of six (6) ordered the lobster and lump crab entree. We were very disappointed when the waitress had to come back and inform us that the meal was not available.

Popular spot before Nats game
Staff work very hard to keep customers happy during rush before baseball game.

My fourth time there--great again
Fantastic food and service. The apple bread pudding is the best ever! Took friends there this weekend--they love it too!
One small disappointment in another otherwise great visit yesterday---the avacado on the sandwich was not ripe--hard as a brick--the rest of the sandwich was marvelous and the fruit was fresh. Service stayed away when we started talking business--great instincts and appreciated.

Good for Pre-Game Dining
You have to get here early on game day if you want a seat. We had the home brewed hefe-weisen bier and mango mojitos to drink . Both drinks were very good. We started with the chef's sampler plate of wings, calamari, and, s/w spring rolls w/dip sauces. Nice way to get a start. We both had salads after that and one could've fed both of us. We had a goat cheese spinach salad w/grilled chicken, and a green apples, grapes, pecans, w/grilled chicken salad. Only complaint is that the baby spinach should be firmer and not soggy in the salad. Otherwise, they too were very good. Flat screen TV's in the bar area show various sports events. As the restaurant fills up it gets noisier and noisier. There should be more bar stools for wall tables .

I loved the time I spent at Gordon Biersch! While I wouldn't recommend it for serious business lunches (the noise level was at times at DEF CON 5) It was a wonderful place to enjoy with friends! Everyone seemed to be having an awesome time and the food was DEEELISH!!

Close to the stadium
Great place for lunch. Convenient to work and the National's ballpark.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lunch was excellent and the service was swift. Do not know what lunch would be like if crowded, though. Not crowded because of the shutdown. Bar scene looks nice when I drive by, though crammed for Nats games!

First time - I'll be back!
This was my first time at Gordon-Biersch, and I enjoyed it. The online reservation worked well, and I'm glad I used it. The table was ready for me and my guest when we arrived. Service was excellent and so was the food. I was there to meet a client for lunch, anfd the overall ambience, upscale feel and ambience created a good vibe. Although the noise level was high, we were still able to have a good conversation without shouting. Definitely recommend this for weekday business lunches and will be back next week for another one.
