Dined here because I got a $10 off coupon. Service was prompt and polite. Room was not quite full, but noise level was bearable. Beer and wine choices were fine. Food was OK, but nothing special. In summary, place feels like a chain restaurant with average offerings. Nothing bad, but I would not go out of my way to seek it out. Safe choice, but not memorable.

We visited here last fall and had one of the best meals we ever had, so we were glad to see our choices were still on the menu. It was not the same! Very disappointed. My wife had the Chicken Schnitzel with lemon and capers and it was so soaked in lemon, it was sour to eat. It only had about 4 capers on it. My ribeye with gorgonzola butter was so fatty, I almost couldn't eat it.\either. ( I am sure in the fall this was either a filet or sirloin - a much better choice). My martini I ordered tasted like water and I sent it back. We were told the bartender was in training. Anyway, hugely disappointed. We would probably not go back again.

Arrived to be seated outdoors quickly. The hostess left the menus and told us we were there just in time for happy hour. Unfortunately if we did not stop a waiter we would be sitting there longer than the 15 minutes we did. Finally Matthew came by and offered drinks but stated it was not happy hour and said we shouldn’t have gotten the happy hour menu I ordered B-more Brew and he returned with my wife's iced tea and said they were pouring it. Ten minutes later he said they just poured the last one and the keg was out i made another choice. The appetizer was served without plates to eat on so I went to the bar to get them. The calamari was barely warm and was tough to chew. The waiter was of course nowhere to be seen. He served the "Wagyu" burgers, they looked like small frozen patties and they were not medium rare - medium at best. My wife, eschewing carbs, asked for no bread but lettuce and got one thin piece of lettuce hidden under the greasy mess. We finished our entrees and the waiter Matthew came by to slap the check down (I guess they don't serve dessert). I had read the reviews about bad service and good food - bad service definitely / good food NOT! Can't give a zero so they get that walk of shame ONE! DON'T EAT HERE!

We’ve been going to Gordon Biersch for 5 years. The food had been consistent however the last three visits the service has been non attentive. After being seated, it has taken 20 minutes for anyone to recognize that we’re waiting. This can make your dining experience very frustrating. If we had not have brought guests with us, we would have left.
Poor service is a killer for restaurants.

We came in with our kids, neither the woman who sat us offered us a high chair or the waiter, that was weird. The shrimp and mango tacos were terrible the tortilla was so dry on them you could barely bite it and there was no mango even on them maybe 2 tiny pieces out of 4 tacos. Kids meals were basic it was just kraft Mac n cheese. The fire alarms started going off because of all the smoke in the kitchen. Service was mediocre, they are very slow. The only thing good was the beer otherwise don’t eat here!!

Gordon Biersch is always a good experience. The menu has many options and the food is plentiful. Service is usually very good, but this particular visit it was clear they were short staffed. That said, our waiter was very pleasant....which is a credit to him as he was the only wait person in the large section of the restaurant.

They did not read the notation that it was my husbands birthday. The lighting at our table was unreasonably bright (we opted not to take pics). It was singularly the brightest table in the room. They weren’t able to adjust it. The fries and woodford reserve steak was good. The other meals at our table of six was not memorable. Service was terrific.

Food was good but not great. Nothing on the menu was anything you couldn’t get at one of a bunch of other places and that might have been fine if the food was better than just pretty good. Service was prompt and friendly. Beer (tied Hazy IPA) was quite good and a good example of its style. Was a nice place but nowhere I’d hurry back to.

Food was great. Bourbon salmon and seared ahi tuna more than met expectations. Beer selection a big plus. The one big negative: how you can serve the entree before the appetizer? I don’t care if that is the norm, to serve the dish when it is ready, to me that is not acceptable. Get the timing right. Otherwise a nice option for inexpensive eating on the Baltimore waterfront.

I went to this restaurant because it was the preference of the person I was dining with. It is a good place if you are a craft beer lover and looking for foods to accompany a beer experience. Nothing special about this restaurant. I doubt that I would return because it’s just not the food experience that I enjoy.

I enjoyed my visit there this past Sunday. The food was great. My one complaint is the drinks were very weak. I had ordered two drinks, the 1st one was a pineapple and mango Margarita. It didn't taste nothing like a Mar. Instead it looked and taste like a Mojito. The 2nd drink was a Mai Tia and it did not taste as though it had any alcohol in it. The drinks were terrible. Upon my next return, I will be ordering any alcohol beverages. The waiter was very professional and attendant.

The server ruined the entire experience. Although the restaurant was nearly empty, we waited more than 10 minutes to have our drinks taken and he then forgot one of the drinks. We had to ask another server for drink refills.

Casual meal for large group during holiday season. One of the only moderately priced restaurants to accept reservations for groups over 10 people.

Really good server kept things moving. Good brews. Liked everything but the ahi tuna, and way too much garlic on the fries.
