Having a party of nine, we expected great service and attentiveness ( a usual/notmal expectation). We were not greeted by a hostess or waiter as we were seated, we were not asked if we wanted waters, but instead we were very quickly asked our drinks as we sat down.( The hostess walked away before she even got to the end of the table where we had to call her back and say she did not complete our drink order ?) Our waiter was seemingly very unexperienced, very un-engaged, and careless. We were not checked up on by anybody and that was the last we saw of our waiter. Most of us needing waters or dressings. Being our first time to the brewery, we were surprised how poor the service was. Is it that hard to find a hostess/waiter

Server was clearly upset and disengaged. Rude and inappropriate comments. The entire party felt he was snarky and sort of a know-it-all, forgetting we are patrons.

The food was very good and the Thursday specials were unbeatable. The 16oz. Marzen draft beers were just $3 and the shrimp & lobster tacos were only $12! The 6 of us were celebrating my nephews 30 birthday and he was brought a delicious complimentary dessert. The service however could have been a little more attentive. Every dish we ordered was excellent, very tasty and served hot, a huge plus for me.

I think the finest quality of this restaurant is its employees, primarily your hostess, Kat. I called in advance and Kat promised to arrange space for a group of ten in the outside patio. Everything was ready when our group arrived and I wanted to thank Kat for her kindness and outstanding customer service! Much appreciated!

Our first time at Gordon Biersch for my Mother’s birthday and it honestly was absolutely AWFUL!!! The food had no seasoning & no flavor. My sister ordered the blackened fish...it was SUPER dry and tasteless. They got my husband’s order wrong and what I ordered was awful. I sent it back and ordered something different. By the time it came out, my family was completely done with their food. I took two bites & it wasn’t any good either. It was a bad experience all around. I’ll NEVER go there again!!!

I go to this restaurant quite often and we usually sit in the bar area to order our meal. This time, we made a reservation to sit in the dining area for our special occasion. The reservation and booth location went smoothly and on time. The issue this time was we felt very rushed by the server (Jonathan) and the food was below par for what we were used to in the past. Our disappointment was made up when we went to the bar area after dinner to listen to some good live music.

The German style beers were better than I expected, the gorgonzola rib-eye was super tasty even if the cut of meat wasn't of the highest quality. I had a great meal here for half the price of many upscale places that wouldn't offer anything better.

Requested a specific table near the performer (Gary Seiler) and got it. It was a very nice spot except that it was a bit cold and could use more outdoor heaters.

Very nice outdoor atmosphere at the patio with plenty of hanging lights. Service was excellent and the food was more exceptional. Had a few stout on draft and it has a very nice chocolate flavor along with some oak.

They had Gary Seiler and his band playing the oldies. Our group enjoyed it very much, even the younger generation. Would definitely go back here to see them again.

Until next time.

First time we spent Valentine's Day here. They had a wonderful Prix Fix menu that was both reasonable and tasty. Our waiter made the experience that much more enjoyable with his not-too-attentive work. He was there whenever we needed him, but not constantly hovering as some places do. We will definitely consider this place again for next Valentine's Day if they offer such a great deal on great food. We do dine here regularly and this place never disappoints.

We had a reservation for 7 o’clock. When we walked in the door and talked to the hostesses, they told us it would be half an hour wait or we could go sit in the bar. They were kind of rude and put me off right away. Then we found a place in the bar and were looking at the menu, the hostesses came and got us and said they have a table ready for us. It was the smallest out-of-the-way table they could possibly find. Once we were seated, everything went fine. The food is average, the prices are slightly high, and I would rather go to The yard house.

Checking in was a hassle- the hostess was flustered by our reservation. The banquet prices are too expensive and they take longer than 24 hours to respond. The service was okay for our party size but it did seem chaotic. Overall the food was good but the steak was fatty.

The food served at this restaurant was among the worst I have experienced. The exception was the warmed pretzel and bratwurst appetizer. They must not cook anything and just warm up prepackaged items...didn’t even do that well or consisistantly as some was cold, some items were warm and but one item was hot on entrees received by the for of us. This was not a good experience

Good food, great prices especially the Sunday happy hour menu. The server was slow and we had to flag her down a lot. a word to the wise- words you never want to hear from your server when you say you haven't seen her in a while-----"I've been busy!!"
But the beer and the cocktails were great also!

It was a nice meal although we did make a reservation and they didn't have a table ready. It was a short wait, though. Also, it was for a birthday but the server didn't ask or do anything for it ... overall, we have a nice time.

The staff was very pleasant. Upon being seated, we waited for service about ten minutes then I had to flag down another server and waited another five minutes before she waited on us. Then another 10 minutes before we got drinks. After that, server was very responsive.
