“Food was good, but overall not loyal to customers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We joined their "loyalty club" but was extremely disappointed to find out that a birthday coupon would not be honored for lunch because the meal was being "carried out" (back to my office). This is a trivial thing, and I understand they used the coupon to lure me in so they could up-sell me and get tip money, but the coupon was supposed to be a "reward" for giving them my email address. I didn't feel rewarded and decided to remove my email and my business. They weren't loyal to me.

“Beautiful restaurant, great beer, underwhelming food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I'd been wanted to go to Gordon Biersch for awhile because I pass by it all the time and the building is absolutely stunning: huge, open marble interior. It just looked like the food would be great. I went with some friends for some beer and dinner. The drinks were great, but the food was no better than what you would find at Applebee's. It was pretty disappointing. I recommend going there for the bar, but not for a meal, especially since there are so many better food choices in the area for a similar price.

I blogged about my experience there if you want to see some pictures of the food and get more of my thoughts: http://hungry-games.com/2013/01/08/gordon-biersch-brewery-washington-dc-go-for-the-beer-not-for-the-food/

“Good for a business lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

The space Gordon Biersch occupies is beautiful. It is truly a unique place for a restaurant. The food, unfortuantely is not so unique. Nothing on the menu has really jumped out at me, and I have been many times as it was close to my office and had big tables in order to hold a business, or working lunch. The entrees seem uninspired and generally under-seasoned, even after trying many different things on the menu. Now that I have moved offices, I do not see the need to go back.

“Unique Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

The food we had was very good! Interesting setting and very friendly and nice staff. The brewery attached to the restaurant makes it very unique from a normal restaurant!

“Less than average service at the Tysons Corner restaurant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

The food is average if you like run of the mill chain type food. The service at the Tysons Corner restaurant is awful and unpleasant. We do not go there anymore.
