We had a very good dinner here on Saturday night. I had the shrimp and mango tacos and my husband had a burger. Both were great. The beers were also very good as was the service. We will be back.

There were four in our party. We ordered beer and some fries. Beer was great so we then ordered our dinner. One hour and 15 minutes later we received our dinner. Well three people got their dinner. One person still did not get their dinner. Waitress said they messed up and just put on grill. After we were almost done eating final person in party got their cheeseburger. Our waitress was wonderful. She was very apologetic and we felt bad for her. It certainly wasn't her fault. She brought over our bills (split) and only offered us a 20% off next visit coupon. We asked to speak to manager and when he came over he was very apologetic and said there was no reason we should have waited that long and comped ALL of our food and drinks! I will go back because that was a stand up thing to do. Again, the server was great. Food was good. We will give this another try again.

We went to GB for our anniversary. They treated us extra special. The service was attentive but not overbearing. The food was excellent. Because of how they made our anniversary memorable, we’ll be back

Good second experience. Seems that the kitchen is short handed because it takes quite a while for the food to come out. Service is great- Cody was courteous and apologetic for the food being delayed. He ensured our drinks were kept refilled and checked up on us regularly.
Will return for the great happy hour prices and tasty food!

The food was good at a fair price . The service was good with a friendly server. The decor is is modern and fresh in appearance. Drinks were well made and a fair value. Located in an upscale area with sidewalks for walking to view the nice shops in the area.

Food was great. Our waitress wasn’t the best as we needed water and tea refills and ketchup and ranch and it was hard to get her attention. But otherwise an awesome place to eat.

The hostess was pleasant and seated us almost immediately. It took several minutes for the server to arrive at the table. She was very nice, looked professional but overall the service was slow. She gave us a nearly empty ketchup for our fries and then was nowhere to be found to ask for more. I got up a snagged a bottle from another table that had just left. The food was good, although I needed more salad dressing and the rest of my table was nearly finished eating by the time the server came around and I could ask for more. Our water was not automatically refilled, we had to ask. I was still eating when she asked if we needed our check split, no offer for dessert or coffee which we had discussed getting.
I’ve worked in the restaurant industry for 20 years (even this restaurant for a while) so I feel like I have incredible patience, but this visit was frustrating. It was not efficient. I likely won’t be back anytime soon.

We had reserved through open table and asked for a quiet booth. On arrival we were immediately seated in a small room with a group of about 12 loud, drinking group who were all together . We were the only other 2 in that loud room. We asked to be seated elsewhere away from that group and the hostess was abrupt and surely seating us only slightly away from that group and right beside the kitchen door and hall to the rest rooms so there were many people going by all the time. Food was mediocre and service was poor throughout. Will not go back. Hope all Gordon Biersch are not as bad as this one. Would not recommend.

Excellent employees, excellent food, excellent drinks, interesting and "something for everyone" menu, comfortable and roomy seating, nice bar area with multiple TVs, music blended perfectly in dining area (not to loud, not too soft, just right)... my wife and I had a enjoyable and great time! Thank you Sapphire, our server. You were terrific!

Not worth the money. The food is not excellent. Service very slow. They comped our appetizer that came at the end of our meal. It seemed our waitress was everywhere in the restaurant instead of just her section which seemed to be disorganized for service.

Slow, very poor service, table sticky, no ice in the “iced tea”, slow, slow, slow service. Even when we said we needed our check it took a very long time to get it. AND we had 2 checks at our table and the server switched our tickets so that the other couple was charged for our food and we were charged for theirs. We didn’t have time to fix it because our server took so long that we were not able to do anything about it. Fortunately we were going to a movie nearby or we would have never made it in time. Menu has been changed and unfortunately there is only one size of the Cheese Curds now, and for a price of almost $11, it’s too small. Really hugely disappointed for the first time at this restaurant. We don’t see ourselves coming back anytime soon. What happened Gordon Biersch? You were so good in the past.

Out of most beer, out of mushroom topping for steak, service was slower, no silverware service until after food was served. No drink napkins-drinks kept dripping water all over the table.

Disappointing visit to Gordon Biersch. I don't know if they were short-staff or what but it literally took us 1.5 hours to get a couple of burgers. I was beyond annoyed by the time we left. The food was fine but not worth the wait. Get your act together GB!

2 of my friends both ordered steak. Both were ordered medium. One came out perfectly medium, the other was not even medium rare yet, it was close to rare. The GM happened to check on it and we addressed the problem, and they put a new one down. About 20 minutes later, a lady brought it out, and my buddy cut into it and it was the exact same temp. He asked if it looked medium to her and she nodded and mentioned it tempted at 141. Well medium should be about 155 when taken off a grill, and 160 once it rests for a few minutes. He told her to take it back, and he never got his steak. It was removed off of the bill before the check was even presented, so that was nice, but the person who brought it back to my friend was not very helpful. Other than that one issue, the rest of the food was great, the service was excellent (Rachel I think was our server).

All three of us had dirty, spotted silverware. Two of us had forks with crusted food on them. The server, accompanied by the manager brought three new sets of cutlery and they looked just as bad but no food was crusted on them except one of my forks. I’d hate to see what the kitchen looks like. The manager apologized but said nothing when we opened up our “fresh sets of cutlery” that was all spotted while he was still at our table. We won’t be back.

There is no lunch menu, dinner prices prevail all day long. Most restaurants have a lunch menu, this was disappointing as well.

Service was worse than terrible. We saw our waitress three times. After waiting 25 minutes or more then general manager asked us if we wanted anything to drink and took order. Would not recommend eating here

I made a reservation for Mother’s Day on Open Table. When we arrived we were told we would have to wait because “open table” over booked the restaurant .
After we were seated , our food took way to long and our server never brought the lemon for our ice teas and kept forgetting to bring more ice and another set of silverware .
