As always, excellent food! ONLY complaint i have is that - we ordered a steak salad and it looked like a a side salad x2 - was not that big and not that filling to the point that we were still a LITTLE hungry/unsatisfied - should have ordered an appetizer. other than that - delicious - great service and def will come back - i have been coming here for MANY MANY years!

It's loud there, but I usually enjoy it. Unfortunately, this time we went for my husband's birthday and I was told (by a waitress) they'd bring him a brownie and sing happy birthday after our meal ... but they never did. That was a disappointment. :(

Food was good not best, i like my Rib Eye steak to have shape of a ribeye steak this one didn’t looked more like a sirloin. Wife ordered sirloin and she got brewers steak well done she wanted hers medium. i ordered ribeye but it looked like a sirloin and mine was medium and i wanted it medium well! so that wasn’t right but we were happy to be out and eat our food and didn’t complain. another thing was we had a birthday at the table and no dessert was offered. Famous garlic fries were a bit un fresh old crusty and impregnated with frying oil. But service did pay us lots of attention, refills were timely and bill was correct. overall its ok

Blanca was very attentive and a lot of fun! She was so friendly to my in-laws and just made my son's birthday a day to remember. We asked a lot of questions, but she was always patient and accommodating. It was an evening to remember. Thanks again, Blanca!

Mice beer selection and reasonably well crafted brews. Food ranged from very good (steak) to poor (bourbon glazed chicken. Service outside on the patio on a Tues evening was fine, nit crowded at all.

The last few visits were terrible so I had little hope for this one. But it was great. Our server was super attentive and accommodating. The menu had a good variety of items. I had a little hiccup with my special order being wrong and the Exec Chef came to my table to make sure he was making it right the second time. My food was so good that my hubby and son jacked one taco each from my plate. Only suggestion,as a VP in a Restaurant Group, is that the team members all congregate as a group to chat in the dining room which shouldn't be guest facing and the MOD didn't appear to be doing any table touching. But I only point that out because I am in the industry and this is something I would talk to my team about. Overall, I was really impressed and will be back.

I have been to Gordon Biersch about 16 times. Unfortunately, this was not their finest. Honestly, if this was my first time I would not come back

We had a good experience overall. One incentive was the 25% savings coupon we received in the mail. A little puzzled at check-in, when the hostess claimed she had no Open Table reservation for us, despite the E-mail confirmation I showed her. She seated us right away, however we were placed in the bar area which was extremely noisy. Had to shout to hear each other. Fortunately, we could watch the baseball game on the bar TV. My salmon portion was rather small, but very fresh & tasty. My wife liked her Cajun pasta very much. We would come back if the environment was quieter.

We've been coming here since they opened. They are very good and enjoyable. The only thing we noticed is that their menu seems to be more limited and the portion size reduced. Still, you don't leave hungry, the food is good, the beer is good, it's a nice place.

I've never had a waiter like Kevin all I did was look at him and he knew I needed him, he is so awsome. I will ask for him the next time I go there. The food was excellent, and the ambiance was great. All and all 5 stars.

We enjoy coming here because of the great food and beer but the service we get makes it that much better so spend time with the family here.

The food and drinks were amazing! Unfortunately the service wasn't. We got our appetizers and we were still waiting for napkins and forks after we asked the server twice. We asked another server and he said "no" after he saw our faces he was like "I'm joking. I'll bring them right away". I was about to order another drink when the server already brought us the check so I didnt have the opportunity to do it. Not even 5 minutes passed and he asked us if the check was ready for him, which in my opinion that was totally disrespectful.

The restaurant failed to honor our Open Table Reservation at the scheduled time. They treated us like a walk-in and asked we wait an additional 30 minutes. Person at check-in was rude. Spoke with the manager and mentioned the poor attitude by the hostess, and that it was bad business etiquette. Why are they on Open Table if they aren’t going to respect the reservation?! Won’t be dining there any time soon after that experience - and we were frequent customers too.

We were celebrating Mother"s Day. We were also celebrating a birthday and I listed that when I made the reservation. They did nothing about that and by the time I realized that nothing was going to happen, I did not raise a fuss.
People ordered without bacon and got bacon. People ordered one dish and got another and it had to be sent back......so people were eating a different times.
I was not impressed.

Went with family and did not have a good experience. Service was fine but the food was not good. All the meat (chicken, fish and sausage dishes) were all brutally overlooked. Everything else was basic and unspecial and not worth the money

We had a delightful time - our anniversary of our first date that was at the same Gordon Biersch. Our waiter (damn, I forgot his name) was excellent. He suggested beers for our flights, checked in often and was better than waiters at some of the higher end restaurants. All in all a great time - thank you!

Everyone seemed to enjoy the meal. The burgers looked great and all the fries were eaten. Corn chowder was enjoyed by our 95 year old gramma. Tuna was a bit raw for one and perfect for another. Beer was too hoppy for our tastes.

I ordered a steak and it was unchewable, I sent it back and the waiter recommmended a different type soo ai ordered that one, and he came back and said they all had sinue and grizzle in them so he recommended chicken si I did recieve the chicken but it was dry as wood. I scraped the sauce and ate it anyway. our wings were great and the salads were ok. the food started coming before the drinks, bad! i found that i could not leave more than a 15% tip this visit. I surely hope you take off the filet mignon signs that are on the tables since they are no longer available!!

The food was terrible. However, the front desk saved our night. We previously had a ressie here and when we arrived they said they couldn't accommodate us because we needed a high chair. So this time I made sure to put it in my notes and when we showed up they said they couldn't seat us with a highchair and suggested a booster....FOR A ONE YEAR OLD. She can't even consistently not fall down since she is a baby so I was really annoyed that we wasted our time again. However, the host got creative and opened the back room so we could have a high chair. Our server probably was spread out since that wasn't her normal section, yet she was pretty good keeping us happy and full with drinks. The food was awful, my husband always wants to eat here but I have yet to be impressed with it. However, he was up all night from what he ate so I think my time of having to go here is done now lol. While we most likely won't be back, I really appreciate the efforts the host took to fix the highchair issue.

The host was not warm or welcoming. The restaurant was not clean or updated. I received a warm, flat cider which I sent back. Once my meal came it had no flavor and once I saw the chicken I couldn’t even eat it. It was the oddest color and texture and that completely turned me off. The only good thing about the experience was our server. She was pleasant and attentive and did not take the food being sent back personally.

I had the chopped salad with chicken and it was not chopped and had big pieces of chicken in it. I did not use the recommended dressing because it was creamy (not very healthy) and chose the Balsamic which was not very tasty at all. I took it home and put my own dressing on it and it was much better. It didn't look like a chopped salad at all!
