Hamburgers were good but service was very poor. Server tried to take our order twice. When we wanted to leave, waited and waited. No one came to clear plates or see if we wanted anything else. I finally went to the hostess to ask for our bill. Not likely we will return.

Our party of 4 was very disappointed by the food service. Steaks were undercooked to the point that a medium-rare ribeye was served mostly raw. I despise leaving poor reviews, however I cannot recommend anyone visiting this location until reviews indicate a better level of food service..

We used to come to GB all the time when we moved to the Navy Yard Area. Unfortunately, the quality of both the service and the food keep getting worse, and we pretty much stopped coming. We received a couple of gift cards and decided to give it a try again - we were very surprised and pleased at the improvements. The food was great and our server (G??) was awesome. We will continue to come now that things have improved;.

We made reservations for a Wed evening at 6:45. We arrived a little early and were told it would take about 5 min for our table. At 7:00 we still hadn't been seated. There were a couple of open 2 persons tables but also a group gathering in the middle. We were never told if those tables were for that group. No one ever spoke to us after we checked in for our reservation until we tpld them to cancel our reservation. The young lady handling reservations was very nice and offered to get the manager but we left and walked a block to buffalo wild wings and were seated immediately. Won't be back. Tried this place the last time I stayed at Homewood suites for a to go order and also was unsuccessful.

Server was very distracted. Very nice, but very distracted. Out of some of the items we ordered. I had to ask about my salad. I was pretty obvious it had been sitting in the back for some time when they brought it out.

2nd visit on a holiday Monday. Beer battered fish and chips were disappointing. Kobe burger not as appealing as the 1st visit, but still delicious. Rib eye steak cooked as ordered, perfect medium rare. Infinite fries only applies to sandwiches, but dinners did come with 2 sides.

Kobe cheeseburger absolutely wonderful. Lobster shrimp tacos very tasty. Bratwurst sliders just the right size and very tasty. Very nice 1st visit experience. Rewards card incentive to return as well as the good food and service.

So right through the door, the hostess was attentive and delightful. We get to our table and our waitress was just a peach. The food was amazing and didn’t take long to prepare (You have to try the mussels). The sampling of beers is a must if you want to try more than one. Definitely going back.

The heat was not working when we arrived for our reservation and they sat us near a window. My friend didn't mind it but I did. We had to dine with our coats on. Even the waitstaff worked in their coats. This soiled my experience. I have visited other Gordon B. locations and will continue to patronize them. However, please either fix the heat or offer complimentary tea and coffee; we are approaching winter!

Overall ok - service was personal and courteous but not very attentive- food was of slightly above average quality so value was pretty good . A good spot for younger crowd with the live music and atmosphere.

Went on a Tuesday night and there was a very large party occupying two tables. After about 40 minutes we inquired about the status of our order. We were told that our food would be ready after they finished cooking for and serving the two large tables. So it took almost an hour to get our food. The food itself was nothing special.

I recently dined at Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant - Navy Yard and could not have been happier with the service and food. The server provided exceptional assistance, in that she was attentive, witty, personable, and accurately recorded my requests. I’ve never had better service while dining at any Gordon Biersch location. The food was definitely on point for the first time ever, and the kitchen staff gave me exactly what I wanted with great flavor. I was truly happy to have dined out.

Went to GB for dinner before a baseball game. Fist, the A/C apparently had been out for days, and it was like a sauna. Second, the staff seemed unaware that there was a ballgame and, hence, that they would be inundated with customers. It took an hour to be served. Apologies from the waitress and manager did little to rectify the problem.

Convenient location near the Nationals ballpark and a Metro stop. We arrived about 20 minutes before our reservation and where greeted and seated immediately. It was immediately following a baseball game and the restaurant quickly filled up but they seemed to handle it quite easily. Everything we ordered was very good. I really liked the crab artichoke dip appetizer.

The food was great! I had the pineapple & mango margarita which was delicious! The wings were very favorful and we loved the coconut shrimp! It was busy so our waitress did take a little longer between courses. Also this place is very loud but if you don't mind that it is great place to go.

Although we made a reservation through Open Table, when our party of 10 arrived, the restaurant told us they do not take reservations on game days. We therefore waited until a table became available.

Our group was attending the baseball game after our meal and as we were late sitting down, we asked if they could help us get out by 7pm. It took 50 minutes until our food arrived and the server did not check back once during this time to get refills. I asked for the check as soon as the food arrived and our group rushed to eat and depart for the game.

Overall I understand they were busy in advance of a game, however they should not accept reservations if they cannot honor them.
