This was our first time at the Tysons restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. With only one of our party of 4 being a beer drinker, it wasn't an obvious dinner choice.
The service, however, was pretty awful.
One person had their salad arrive much earlier than the rest. And another dinner was served a good 10 minutes before the rest of the party. He finished by the time the others were served. Dirty plates were not cleared away.
We had to flag down the waitress several times to get her attention for more water, iced tea, ketchup, etc.
And it wasn't even busy.
Service was a little less than average. Server didn’t come by much, and food was so so.
Bathroom was dirty, which made me look more closely at the restaurant when I walked out, and realized that the entire restaurant was dirty (6:45 PM).
Our table was next to the bar area, but if you are seated in the restaurant area, you are not entitled to the happy hour drink specials.
Great for a business lunch. Easy to get separate checks -- no hassle at all with the waiter to do it. Good timing on ordering, receiving drinks, receiving meals, and getting checks -- efficient but didn't feel rushed. Tasty food -- love those garlic fries!
New to the area. Looking for interesting new dining.
Good food. Needed more beer selections. Burger and appetizers were good. Service excellent.
This is a great environment to meet and hang out with friends and coworkers.
Great service. I loved the grilled steak salad.
Great night out with friends before going to Wolf Trap!
Great food and services. Greeter/hostess needs improvement. Was standing around waiting to be seated for 10 mins. Anther couple left because they didn't want to wait any longer. Decided to walk around and found my party.
The good was great, as well as the service. Our server was very nice and took his time to answer our questions and make recommendations. He was thoughtful to double check with me on how spicy I might like my food based on what I ordered and recommended I get the sauce on the side - which was a great idea. The beers they brew there were also great. Finally, this was a great value for the price - so glad to find a reasonably priced restaurant in the area. We will definitely comeback again.
This place would be good for a pretzel and a few beers. The other main courses and appetizers were merely edible, and not particularly hot.
Our server Eric was great and helpful! We really enjoyed the seafood tacos and waygu beef burger!
Food was ok, though the garlic fries were more garlic than fries. Left a real after-taste.
Loved the fish tacos with lettuce (healthy option) and my IPA beer!
I was disappointed to say the least. The appetizers were horrible. The calamari was undercooked and seemed frozen. The crab artichoke dip was runny and not tasty at all. The Seafood Cobb Salad was just OK. I will not be back.
This was our second visit to GB Brewery and my wife and I both enjoyed our dinners. The waiter was very professional and friendly and the noise level was low so we could talk to each other without raising our voices. Enjoyable.
Very nice restaurant in Tyson's Corner mall. interesting menu.
Thank you for allowing me to write at least 50 (fifty) characters worth of review. I was just going to give 5 (five) stars, but since 50 (fifty) is the bare minimum, I will just say: "Good job".
A work neighbor/friend, who I knew is also fan of the great food selection at Gordon Biersch, decided to try Tysons Gordon Biersch restaurant at my recommendation. Our food was amazingly good - my friend ordered a salad entree and we shared GB's Ahi Tuna Nachos appetizer, which we thought was a brilliant concept! For my main dish, I ordered their Blackened Salmon Sandwich with fries, which was quite delicious. What ruined the dining experience for us was our rather stoic, rushed and rude server. We read many online reviews before making our reservation and the recent ones in particular did not look too good... However, we were still hopeful that our dining experience might be better - unfortunately it wasn't. On top of a rather unimpressive overall service, our server also ended up mixing up our credit card slips to sign, which was pretty consistent with his lack of care.
We are still motivated by the quality of GB's food selection to go back, but probably will not be rushing to return there anytime soon - many restaurants in Tysons have raised the service bar quite high and so are our expectations. I still recommend this place for all the foodies out there that like a contemporary German-American dining.
The appetizers were gross. We just left before ordering entrees. Empty on fathers day!
Very disappointing meal and service. .
Probably. Pre-ordered our food prior to arriving at the restaurant, so when we arrived the food was ready and we could eat. We still waited the ordinary 15-20 minutes for our food to come though we had called in ahead of time.
Great beer, but slow service.
This dining experience was a disaster! We talked up GB to a friend order for mahi-mahi plus garlic fries was wrong - fries were substituted for the rice, so fish & sauce on top of soggy fries (actually wanted the rice). My order was re-done, which always means that everyone else is finished by the time you receive replacement order. Asked for fresh fries to replace soggy. So 2/4 orders were wrong - the manager said there was a processing error where the gift card was applied to the check in advance, so adjustments could not be made to comp my burger properly (plain burger comped, not BBQ) and didn't offer to comp the mahi mahi - just said he had "teaching points" for IT (gift cards) & culinary (fish on top of fries). We could not use our 25% off coupon received in the mail because the order was already paid for the by the gift card (that I hadn't purchased yet). Manager took our coupon and provided 3- $10 coupons based on $100+ check. We left with a negative impression on all of the above & couldn't help but feel that the manager didn't make it right - both burger and mahi mahi orders should have been comped & manager wasn't apologetic about all of the foul ups. Very disappointing dining experience.
Outstanding service and food!
Very good food. Great family atmosphere. We had all age groups represented for our meal (baby, 7yo, 15yo, and 4 adults). There was something for everyone and food was fairly priced. Will visit again!
The beer is very good but the food was only okay. My grilled Mahi-mahi, which was a featured menu item, had a slight fishy taste. That is not typical of fresh mahi-mahi. My wife had a burger and fries which were very good. In the future we will stick with there regular menu items.
Food was cold and bland. Service was ok but slow.
It was just ok. Probably will not return.
Wonderful server last night. He was honest and told us all about the different kinds of beers.
We were a pain about the different checks and he fixed everything perfectly.
Awesome gastropub burger
Great quality food, friendly servers, comfortable atmosphere. 10/10.
Awful App, awful salad. Never would go back
Lighting was a little dark, but overall good restaurant!
Service was great, fast and efficient.
10 minutes after we were seated we were served. No apology just "I didn't know you were in my section". Slow to bring refills on drinks. No thank you when we paid bill. Very expensive. A 3 taco platter cost over $18.00. Meal for two cost $50.00 and all we had to drink was iced tea. No entrée was ordered.
We loved it. One thing we all agreed with was we had enough food, but no leftovers. We found it refreshing that we were full but not stuffed.
Everything is good about this restaurant, except I’m just not a fan of southern food, they could use more on their menu.
At 1st I made the reservation online to secure a table for my party once I arrived at the restaurant they had no such reservation under my name. That was a little upsetting but we were seated anyway but once we got to the table the table had not seen a wet cloth there was food debris and food on the table and on the seats. Again we were made to wait until somebody to care of it. The food was fantastic by far one of the best restaurants I have eaten in our waitress was very good. Unfortunately we were seated in an area where there were many different small children producing a large amount of noise
