This place has pretty good brews and you should check out the featured brew. If you go here you should at least have the famous garlic fries, and have some of the beer. The service is usually pretty good, and the inside gets a bit loud

Pros: Beer, Fries, Burgers are good too!

Cons: It gets loud inside. Thats it!

We came here for a group lunch, and I was astounded at how trashy the servers looked! Perhaps it was just the lunch shift, but I am put off when the wait staff have greasy hair, numerous piercings, and all look like high school dropouts.

I came here on a date once and quickly realized I'd have to come back to try more of their beers. I tried a pear ale that was light and not too fruity. My chicken skewers were tasty. Their cajun pasta was decent. I'd come back.

Very tasty salad! But I also ordered the roasted garlic & chicken pizza...NOT worth it, very taste-less. I like this place though, because originally we were going to go to Cheesecake Factory, but the 25-40 minute wait had us out the door

i have worked in this area for so long and never made it over to this place until recently. i have been missing out! the waiter was incredibly helpful and super friendly. we sat on the patio and it was beautiful. its great in for dinner in the summer when its not too hot. we didn't know what kind of beer to try so our waiter brought out a sampler so we could choose our favorite. the garlic fries are fantastic! prices are reasonable. definitely going to go back!

The patio seating here is great, it looks over One Colorado Square in Old Town Pasadena and is a great place to sit on a summer evening.

The food itself is pretty standard bar food, but some of the beers on tap are good.

The food was not worth the wait. The Martinis are the only drink worthwhile here. If you're in dowtown Pasadena, try another restaurant. I was relieved that I didn't have to pay the bill. My fries were smushed.

Many of my friends think that this place is just overpriced but I have always liked it. It's not cheap but the food has always been good and the atmosphere is nice too. I like sitting out on the patio in the summer. The brew some of their own beers and they are always really good. The waiters are usually really good and very nice and I have rarely had to wait very long to be seated.

It's a great location, very good service, but the entree items we ordered were very bland. I would come again for the fun atmosphere, beautiful patio. Just stick to conventional menu items, like burgers and salads.

Gordon Biersch is a great burger and beer joint. It brews it's own beer, right in the restaurant and offers seasonal favorites. The food is hearty, lots of beef, burgers, sandwiches, and salads. On Friday and Saturday nights the bar usually gets pretty crowed, but it is a lot of fun.

Stick with the amber ale, avoid the overpriced appetizers -- unless someone else is footing the bill. Our company sometimes visits for happy hour. Great patio on a nice summer evening.

Fun place for lunch, dinner, or just a drink. Best place in the restaurant to hang out and eat is the bar. Great beer. Somewhat pricey, except during Happy Hour.

PROS: Location, good beer
CONS: Staff is usually in a hurry. Sometimes long wait.

The best dirty martini in Pasadena!! Never have had a problem with the service either. They have a great patio.

The garlic fries are very good. But if you sit on the patio, good luck getting a server to take your order before the prerequisite 20 minute wait at your table. The first time I went there I had to enlist the help of a manager to get a

The food is pretty good considering this is a brewpub. I suggest the filet mignon medallions or the peppersteak. The burgers are probably the best value on the menu, very large and fresh toppings. The beer is alright, but nothing to

I like this location the best because of the patio but the food is not consistent. I've had good meals and bad but because of the price I'm not happy when the meal is bad.

It is fun though, when you come with a group and enjoy the beer

If you want to relax after work this is the place. Sitting on the patio is a must! The steak is the best thing on the menu.

Ok, I get the idea that garlic makes beer taste better, but come on people lets not get carried away. The food is ok, it all tastes the same.. fries w/garlic, chicken w/garlic, steak w/garlic, oh and beer with garlic. I do like the patio

I highly recomend the beer sampler, the food is good but nothing to rave about. The Medallions are a good choice with one of the seasonal brews. The patio is a great place to get your Friday evening started.

The appetizers (dumplings, calamari), burgers and salads are just fine at Gordon Biersch--it's the entrees that swing from tasty to tedious. We've had meals where everything was just fine, and others where the beer was all write home

The garlic fries are QUITE garlicky. Don't mess with 'em if you aren't expecting that. As for beer, get the thickest, darkest one they have.

Editorial from

In Short
Airy, industrial decor lends a lighter, more urban feel to Gordon Biersch than most beer halls. The bar may get crowded after 5pm, when a happy-hour crowd hoists a few pints of seasonal Bavarian-influenced beers. A menu…
