I come to GSAH often for brunch and LOVE it every time EXCEPT when we get a certain server. He calls everyone "dude" (mind you, I'm a woman) and disappears for 20 min at a time- not the best situation when we're trying to do bottomless brunch. The good news is he was more chipper than usual, but nothing can make up for the lack of attention.

Went for pre-concert dinner. Arrived at happy hour and also received 15% discount for pre-concert dining! Food is good as expected for a bar/restaurant. Waitress was very nice and food service was prompt.

First time dining there. Excellent service and a really good value. If you are going to or from the theatre, be sure to ask for the discount (15%). Salad was very fresh. Disappointed the nachos used cheese sauce.

Love this place, have been here several times now & they never disappoint. Drink selection is huge & the menu is very tasty. Service is excellent. They even give you a discount if you're going to the local theatre!

Food was good. Service was a little slow, but good. Went for an anniversary brunch, wasn't expecting my such a bar scene, but I didn't mind. They also have specials everyday. I'd go back

Do not go here before the theatre unless it is no later than 6pm reservation or you will not get your food in time.

Gastro pub? They are way far from it. Although our dishes were good (pretzel sticks, veggie burger, chicken wrap) they were nothing to rave about. It's more of your typical bar.

They service was slow and almost like they didn't care much for patrons. The food came out on time though.

Unfortunately we never got to eat, after waiting at least 25 minutes for our food we could not wait any longer as we were already late for a concert, the restaurant was not crowded, mostly a bar crowd but apparently the kitchen cared more about getting food to a party downstairs then in the bar area. We had ordered a wrap and fish and chips, not to complicated. When we told the waitress we could not wait any longer the food suddenly appeared, the manager was nice enough to comp the beer and ice tea we had. My comment to the manager was that the kitchen needs to balance out the service to restaurant patrons as well as any private parties.
