Good location.
Nice beer garden with plenty of life music.
Average food.
Beer is not for beer lovers, watery taste is below average for micro-brewery.

Coming from Portland, Or to San Jose on business, figured I'd re-visit a Gordon Biersch pub in down town San Jose. If you 1. like a good local beer, PASS on GB. Beer was way below average, had the Seasonal tap. 2. Then they charged $5.75 for a poorly poured Pint! Must have added a fuel surcharge. There are many options in the South Bay, I didn't have a chance to visit The Tied House Brewery just a block or two away but has to be better. To add insult the beer choice must be catered to those that do not like Hops. GB, get your act together. Try the IPA at El Toro in Morgan Hill for a lesson on how to brew.

I guess everyone pretty much goes to Gordon Biersch to try their garlic fries--after all it is one of the things they are famous for. I don't really care for the alleyway entrance.

My husband and his colleagues like to eat here as it is convenient to their office. I have gone here with friends for girls night out. Good garlic fries. The portions are pretty big. Nice varieties of beer.

The first time I had their beer was at the airport when I was waiting for a flight. I've since been a few times to their restaurants and have not been disappointed with the beer. They have a seasonal beer which is really good and I will re-visit for the beer. The food is not all that great and the prices are exorbitant for bar food. I've found better value at similar places. And the two times I visited their service was only ok. The ambience is great for a night out with friends; it's a little loud, which is how I like it! Again, great beer but haven't seen anything else yet.

I like the beer at GB. I found the staff slightly rude. The place is not very kid friendly. They do sometimes have good live entertainment. There has been a wait for a table the few times I've been there.

I went into GB just to have a few appetizers and a drink with a friend. They do an outstanding job. We had quick and friendly service. The food was wonderful. He had the meatloaf and I had some flatbread with different spreads. Both disappeared. I also tried a new drink, a Key Lime Pie which was really good. I would go back anytime.

Ambiance - very nice ambiance and the outdoor patio is wonderful, even for those cool nights its perfect. Listening to the live music feels just great. The noise level can be deafening for some, but for Gordon Bierschs habitus, thats part of the attraction.

Food - Food here is simple and good. Portions are often too large to one. That makes it hard to drink more beer.

Service - It doesn't matter whether i'm sitting outside or inside, the service is always great.

Beer - the beer is always refreshing especially when sitting outdoors. The beers here are great, especially the seasonal brews.

They have other branches too, but i have only been to the san jose branch.

Every dinner I've had here has never been a bad experience. My favorite dishes are the glazed chicken wings, roasted chicken with mash potatoes, seared ahi tuna, roasted chicken with fettuccine, and the gordon biersch burger. My favorite beers are the Blonde Bock, Pilsner, and Marzen. As for the seasonal beers, I like the Hefeweizen and Winter Bock. It doesn't matter whether i'm sitting outside or inside, the service is always great.

I went to Gordon Biersch with a couple of friends a couple of weeks ago. The experience was pleasant. Unfortunately, I only had dessert since I was late, but from what my friends said, the food and beer were great. Our waitors flirted a little, but that was to be expected. I would definitely come back again for San Jose downtown dining. Reqest an outside table, especially in the summertime. This place left a charming impression.

I love GB, I always have a pleasant dinning experience with out feeling gouged. Beer is best I have found outside of Germany. Portions are often too large to one. That makes it had to drink more beer.

On a great summer evening there is nothing better than going to Gordon Biersch having a beer a great meal and listening to live music. The patio is incorporated into the fun of the bar and restaurant. The food is good and the beer is great!
