Crisp Cider and Delicious Food!

The cider is very very good! Best in town. The outside seating is nice and has a great view of Mill Ave. The artichoke dip is AMAZING! I will go back just for that dip.

This place has a good beer selection, but the food is nothing to write home about. It's fine, just not above average. Cool patio overlooks Mill Ave.

Right on Mill Avenue, Gordon Biersch attracts a bit of a party crowd on Friday and Saturday nights. There is a reason for the crowds...quality beer. For me the prices are a little high and the food does not elevate to the quality of the beer, except in price. As a long time native, I'd go to Four Peaks instead.

I recently dined at Gordon Biersch in Tempe during a business trip. The location in downtown Tempe, near the university, is a great area. The seating area in the restaurant is large, and also features a large bar area, where you can dine as well. The menu features several unique items, and the prices were very good. I had the... More

I went to this place to try their beers. I had a 0.5L Maibock and Hefeweizen. My friend tried their IPA and Marzen. The beers were excellent. The ambiance and lighting were too good. They had music too. I tried their 'Legendary Garlic Fries' too, but did not find it that legendary. Overall it is a decent place to hang... More

Use to be a BIG fan of Gordon Biersch, but lately their quality has gone down! Although Aliesche did a great job as a server, the food quality was....average. Had the garden salad with a slab of Salmon, and the Salmon was as if it had been cooked the morning of...very DRY. Also had the seared Tuna appetizer, and expected... More

Great place, great atmosphere. The Mai Tai was had the right balance of liquor and sweet. Seafood Cobb w/warm bacon vinaigrette was amazing and fresh. Highly recommended

I have various food allergies, and it is often difficult to navigate menus and eating out. I follow a very strict AIP (Autoimmune Protocol) Paleo lifestyle... even eating out. Gordon Biersch has a Gluten Free menu, which makes choosing a safe meal much easier, and the staff is very careful and accommodating. I enjoyed the wild caught salmon listed under... More

Good burgers and small plates, good beer, and the calamari is done right. Wait staff is knowledgeable on the beers and will make recommendations if asked. Darn nice place to get together with friends and shoot the..... Decently quiet on a Sunday night, which was nice.

Don't forget this restaurant is based around a great micro brewery. The beer is very and the food was also quite good. I had the pecan chicken and pear salad that was really good and fresh. The portion was large and well priced. My husband had a cheese burger with a great side Caesar salad. We shared a Hef brew... More
