Average food with high prices

I think the food here is average at best. If you are downtown Tempe there are much better places to go. I end up here because my sister always chooses it when it's her turn to pick. Of all the things I have tried I still think their salads are the best on their menu.

We always hit Gordon Biersch either before or after a spring training game (sometimes both). It's centrally located on Mill Avenue, and always has good beer. The happy hour prices for mixed drinks is a good value.

The cocktails here are lovely and there is such a large variety of beer. We had a sharing board of meat and cheese to start, would recommend. They also do garlic fries, I will always order these! I have never had garlic fries like it, even though they make your breath stink. Between us both sharing a starter and having... More

Stopped in here while on vacation in the Phoenix area. Service in the bar was excellent! Great selection of cocktails and of course, beer! Ordered their garlic parmesan french fries as an appetizer as we were not overly hungry and they were by far, the BEST fries we have ever had in our lives!

This was a wonderful place for lunch today. The view from the bar area was very nice. The food was also very nice as was the beer which is made onsite. I plan to return soon during the evening to enjoy it again.

We stopped by the Gordon Biersch in Tempe after a long bike ride. Sat on the balcony overlooking Mill Ave. Good food. Prompt, friendly service. And much fun people watching along the avenue. Turned out to be a perfect stop just to kick back, have a beer and relax.

The food is pretty good, but the beer is excellent. Really top notch, more of a German style than your typical microbrewery. The setting for this place is really great.

From the start I was not happy that they seated our party of 4 between to very large loud tables. But the service was very good and the food was excellent. I was a little disappointed that they could not (or would not)j seat us on the balcony even though 4 tables sat empty.

We stopped in for a quick dinner and were seated quickly. Our waitress was pleasant and explained the menu was new and asked if we needed any help in choosing our meals. Great so far! We ordered a Farmhouse burger and a Gorgonzola Pear Salad. The burger was ordered medium rare, but arrived well done. Hardly any flavor left in... More
