Went for a private party, food and beer were fine, but wallet was stolen while I was standing 2 feet away. Based on where we were and the fact that I was watching my purse, it was most likely a staff member who stole it. Within 20 min

The garlic fries are to die for. As soon as you get in the restaurant you start to smell them. It is a must have

Girls night out...we tried quite a few things.

Crab and artichoke dip was very creamy and not as thick as expected but tasty; didn't come with enough bread for the amount of dip
There was a quesadilla that was very fresh and yummy
Pasta Jambalaya - was okay, but had too much chili powder or paprika in it which made it taste more Latin than Creole
Lump Crab Cake Sandwich with fresh spinach and Cajun remoulade; with garlic fries was so very good...would definitely recommend and would order again. Garlic fries? Oh yes!
We did have drinks, but they were not memorable.
Overall the food was really good and I would recommend and go again.

Pros: great food, atmosphere and prices

Cons: bar drinks could have been better

.

Outdoor seating was comfortable and spaced well. Waitress was neutral, not bad but certainly not memorable either. Our bier order was served quickly and was reasonably good tasting and served at a pleasing temperature.

The first thing we noticed was the menu was all over the place! This chains food options offer no clear identity. We had choices including: Teriyaki Flat Iron Steak, Sesame Tuna with bok choy, Tuscan Chicken Pasta, Meatloaf, Cajun Pasta, Spicy Shrimp Stir Fry with asian vegetables, Pasta jabalya, Mazen BBQ Burger. I felt like I travelled the world just through reading the menu.

After careful study, neither of us really knew what we wanted from this hodge-podge menu that haplessly tries to satisfy every taste. We were uninspired and chose the basic staples of a New York Steak Sandwich (with signature Garlic Fries) and a Mushroom Swiss Burger (also served with signature Garlic Fries). I understand, you are questioning my "critic" status at this point...think about it, at this point we "are" making a critical statement about Gordon Biersch's.

In a nutshell, both sandwiches were ok. Well, we think...for explanation please continue...

Signature Fries...Garlic Fries. Wow, let me say that again, Wow! Upon ordering, I was actually kind of excited about the garlic masterpiece. After receiving our plated delivery, our hopes drown quickly. The fries were literally soaked in pretty much raw, strong, garlic chunks and juice. They were awful, simply awful. As mentioned in my "cons" this is likely the worst food I have ever been served in a restaurant. Signature? Wow! The generous pile got returned to the kitchen...err garbage disposal. My partner 100% agreed with the assessment and contributed to the Midtown landfill also.

Back to the burger...It was reasonably good, I think. My mouth was so filled with strong, uncooked garlic odor that I really couldn't taste the burger and thus can not accurately provide a quality review on it.

We hoped to recover with a good dessert and had our eye on chocolate peanut butter pie. On this night, our waitress indicated that was not available. We opted for some Dairy Queen Ice Cream which helped reduce the garlic breath. Upon returning home, a good brushing with ample toothpaste helped too.

Cons: Garlic fries may be the worst food I've ever been served

A relative and I tried this establishment on a Tuesday evening. Valet was nice, we were quickly seated, and the server was pleasant. The menu was a mish-mash of different cuisines, with no real theme. When you read an item, it sounds appealing, then they throw a curve ball during the description (Fish & Chips with a Cajun remoulade?) I couldn't tell if this was an asian inspired menu, pub menu, BBQ menu, steak house, or pizza joint.
The beer was descent, but I'd rather go down the street with a huge beer selection. The desert menu was nothing to write home about. Your standard chain Sysco bought desert options. One last thing that I believe might have ruined the evening for me, was the Garlic fries. These fries were so overpowered with Garlic, it over shadowed the NY steak sandwich I had ordered. If you LOVE Garlic, order these fries. If you are on a date, or plan to be in the next month, skip the fries.

We are big brewpub fans.While visiting Atlanta we have had many good experiences at 5 Seasons.Gordon Biersch, on the other hand, was an unmitgated disaster.A sign of bad karma was the valet parking attendant shooing us away because the lot was full.This was made more curious the sandwich sign in front that read "immediate seating available."In fact, the joint was empty.Our server, a friendly little thing, had little to contribute, advising that the "pretzel coated tilapia" was "very popular" and the Mexican egg rolls were "nice."Believe me, the food was not worthy of being on an Appleby's menu! More on that later.It appeared that the kitchen and wait staff were in a hurry to get home, though we sat down at the table at 8:00 p.m.No sooner had our drinks come that we had our appetizers.Before my wife could even ingest a spoonful of her crab and lobster bisque our entrees were delivered.Recognizing that our meals would languish under a heat lamp as we ate our appys (or being coated in saliva by the woeful wait staff) we did not send them back.When asked if the contemporaneous delivery of drinks, appetizers and entrees was how this dive operates, the waitress politely offered "oh, I did not realize the entrees would come out so quickly." The food is easy to characterize: industrial.My fish was no more than a dry filet coated in crushed nuts and bread crumbs that tasted like it had been prepared in a company kitchen many weeks earlier, frozen and reheated for me.Pretzel crust?Maybe I don't know what a pretzel is.The pizzas were, well, the kids picked at them if only not to waste food.My wife's fish and chips were dry and tasteless.Are you listening Mrs. Paul?Finally, this is a brew pub.So, what about the beer.The flight of beers was tepid and uninspiring as if on a Milwakee's Best brewery tour.During Ocktoberfest, yet.The bock beer resembled something served at a fraterninty party--the next morning.In short, Go to 5 Seasons and be grateful you did.

Gordon Biersch has the best food, and beer in Midtown. The prices aren't very midtown either. I love going here and sitting by the bar. Everyone is so friendly and attentive. Last time I was there I had Erin as my server and she was so sweet. She was super knowledgeable about the beer, and food. I would definately recommend asking for her. If you're in a rush to get to get to The Fox, you should sit at the bar because the bartenders are so much fun and they will accomodate to your time schedule. My favorite beer there is the Martzen. All the beers are brewed right upstairs so the quality is amazing!!

My family has been coming here for quite some time and discovered this place after attending a play at the Fox theater. It is a restaurant and bar setting that is good for all types of people. It is kid friendly as well. The beer samplers are great and the humas is wounderful. The portions are above average and service has always been excellent for us. Definately a place that we will continue to go for a fun night out.

I cannot recommend GB for their service, because it is always very slow regardless of how busy they are. The only thing that I can say is that the garlic fries are pretty good. I have been here about 4 times for lunch with a group of co-workers and we get the same, slow service everytime.

Gordon Biersch is a great restaurant and brewery. They have a number of excellent starters, which could easily pass for a meal, and generous entrees. We've tried burgers, pastas, and seafood -- all with excellent results.

You can also sign up for their loyalty program and receive coupons via email.

PROS: excellent variety of beer

I have been to GB several times and I got the asian salad one time, which was okay. Then the next time I tried the crab cake sandwich. It tasted like a frozen crab cake. I was very disappointed. Although I do have to say they have the best fries! I will come back for the fries and beer but not the food.

As always, food is above average, good service, good location for people watching on Saturday night. Calamari, BBQ Salmon, Hanger Steak, goat cheese ravioli among my favorites. Beer is great too! I travel nationwide, and all the GB locations are a reliable place to get a quality meal, casual or dressed up, and have a fun time.

The atmosphere of this restaurant has a very welcoming, classy ambience, which I found myself quite comfortable dining in.
Interestingly enough, the I watched how the entire GB staff (managers, servers, etc.) efficently worked as whole to make a hectic flood of people be seated quickly, greeted promptly, and had the delicious entree's served shortly after; kudos to their kitchen staff as well.
Overall, I was impressed by the quality and efficeny of this rest. and would recomm. it to anyone for anything!

Can I have garlic on my garlic? This place Looooves garlic. Besides that the beer is good. The service is good. It's your typical cookie cutter chain kind of place that brews it's own beer. The food is average. Did I mention they put garlic all over it?

Had a special event on the upstairs level with the private bar and pool tables. The bartenders were very receptive of our needs, almost too accomodating but very generous indeed. I could not have asked for a better environment to bring the people I invited to this party. Chris made our evening very special. THANK YOU ALL!!!

No matter how good the food is, if the parking attendant is rude and you have an unpleasant experience going in - the restaurant staff has a lot of making up to do!

Great atmosphere. Good food. Average to poor value.

I had lunch today with my mom and sister and it was awesome. I had the flautas off the specials menu, my sister had the hummus, and my mom had an asian salad. Everything came out timely and our waitress Emily took good care of us. It was my first time and I can't wait to try dinner and some of their beers.

I had dinner with a friend Friday night and it was awesome. Our server Matt was friendly and very informative about the beer and menu. We both had a Golden Export (or two) and really enjoyed the beer. I had a salmon dish that was spiced perfectly and my friend went for a burger, that was huge, and not on the dinner menu but Matt had it made for us. We both thought the food and service were surprisingly excellent. I did not even know the restaurant was there but I will be sure to check it out again.

I hope all the servers at Gordon Biersch do not follow the lead of the one who decided to quit speaking to my dining companion and me one Sunday evening. Having brought us an unrequested sampler of the restaurant's beer, he rudely took it away when we politely told him we enjoyed it, but weren't in the mood to order drinks. He then refused to look or speak to us throughout the rest of the meal (thankfully we had already ordered food), rudely slammed our plates on the table, and generally behaved like a small child throwing a tantrum.

Editorial from

At this Chattanooga-founded national brewpub chain, the food ranges from brick-oven pizzas made with hand-tossed house-crafted dough to shrimp and chicken dumplings with Asian barbecue sauce---plenty for two or three to share as there are…
