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

Food was very good, excellent wait service. Had the bourbon barrel Baltic porter and it was very tasty. Apps we had were calamari and shrimp, both excellent and the sauces very zesty. Had the German sausage platter, generous portion and excellent esp with the sweet sauce. Skipped dessert because we were full. Went a bit early so it was quiet for dinner.

Food was reheated and greasy. Waitress was okay but seemed to be trying too hard. Silver and dishes were old and need to be replaced. Restroom was dirty.

Food was bad. My chicken is over cooked, very dry and hard like a rock. My friend fish was burned almost black. Beer was ok nothing special to write about. Service not good at all. Restaurant was busy and our server still couldn’t get our drinks ordered right. My beer came out warm from sat at the bar for too long. Overall experience was not good. I don’t think I will be back again.

The food wasn’t as great as I was expecting especially considering the price. The beer wasn’t brewed long enough and most of the ones I tried in my sample platter were tasteless. The server took a really long time to check on us and didn’t check on ya frequently. I wouldn’t recommend this place. I’m disappointed

My friend and I had lunch here on Saturday and sat in a nice booth. The service and the food were wonderful. We shared the nachos, which is a HUGE amount of food. I asked to have the jalapeño ranch dressing on the side because I thought it would be too spicy ... it was very good ... it also came with a cheese dressing, which was good.
My friend had the Steak Taco, and, although it was really small, she said it was delicious.
I had the California Cobb Flatbread and it was really delicious, except the chicken was a little overcooked, I think the pieces were too small, which caused the problem. I wasn't sure if I would like the Märzen beer balsamic vinaigrette because I am not a beer lover but it was perfect. I took the 4 leftover pieces home and my husband loved it too.
Our waiter did a fantastic job of taking care of us and leaving us alone to enjoy our visit and great food.
This was my first visit to Gordon Biersch and it will definitely not be my last.

Food that came out was cold (ordered a hot sandwich and fries), order was incorrect - asked for condiment on side and it was missing, told the waiter and still never received it. Bacon was requested for my friend's burger and that was missing from their meal. Fries were cold when we got them (not fresh).
Ordered dessert, the brownie tasted way overcooked and the ice cream was melted by the time I received the dessert, brownie wasn't even warm.
The waiter cursed a lot and actually kneeled down at our table complaining that his feet hurt too much to stand. I had to ask for a box for my food about 3 times before he actually brought the box to us.

I had reservation at 6:30 p.m. for a party of 6. The waitress was a newbie and needed more training. Our order was not place because they kept giving her more customer and she did not have the experience to know to place the order first and then deal with the new party. Our food too over an hour and the restaurant was not business. We complain to the manager and he did little to compensate for the inconvenience. This would not have happen at Coastal Flats. The manager would be there immediately at our table correct the problem. I will be going to Coastal Flats in the same mall the next time and bypass Gordon Biresch.

We had a group of 9 to celebrate a family birthday, and GB was able to accommodate all of us, ranging in ages from 12 to 76. We also have a range of preferred tastes, and we were all able to order what we like. The beers and cocktails were interesting and delicious and our food orders were tasty. The waitstaff made sure that we had what we needed. The only adjustment we'd ask for is that the noise level was a bit high.

The waiter Mike had worked a doubble shift and had a very cheerful demeanor. He did not say he had worked for another worker, I just picked up on it. Great waiter very friendly. The manager was very welcoming at the desk. Clearly when the manager is hostes a few workers called out. This being said the staff put it together for a great time.

Our server Jonathan was absolutely awesome. The place was packed but he still managed to make us feel as if we were his only customers. We are definitely going back and requesting his area. Food was good I would recommend the egg rolls and garlic fries with the brownie sundae for dessert. Also the burger we had was cooked to perfection and wrapped in lettuce as requested. We had a wonderful time.
