“Great Beer, food is pretty good too.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Have visited twice in the past few months. The beer is excellent, except for the watered down lightest in the sampler. All of the others are complex and far above the typical beers often served. The Cajun pasta is delicious. Rather noisy, but not too much so. Friendly, helpful staff.

“Great food, cool atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Went here with the family for dinner the other night. Even for a chain they are real good, highly recommend the southwest egg rolls!

“Welcome, Gordon Biersch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Had lunch early on a Sunday - no wait. The restaurant was clean, with plenty of staff ready for the crowd. You can see the kitchen through long, glass windows if you're seated on that level, and in the bar you can see the brewery through glass. The food was very good - a relief based on some of the mall restaurants. And the BEST part: it was QUIET - something very difficult to find in the mall. You did not have to compete to be heard. The decor is light and contemporary and there's enough variety on the menu to find something you're sure to like. You can find some average-priced items and some pricier ones as well. We felt very comfortable and the service was great. As one other reviewer mentioned, I think there are dishwasher issues - the plates looked smudgy on the bottom and a glass still had lip prints. I'm hoping they resolve this issue before I return.

“4 Stars Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Very good. Excellent service and food. Would highly recommend to anyone going to Destiny. This place is warm, modern, and inviting. The staff is friendly and accommodating. I enjoy the fact that you are able to watch behind the scenes in the kitchen through a glass partition. Only negative thing about it was the filthy dirty glasses for water and soda. The food great. Especially the bread pudding. 4 stars. Choose this place over Fridays or Cantina anyday.

“Very Dark and not all seating geared for Sports”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We visited on 3/16/2013. About 5pm. 45 minute wait. Seated in a small booth for 4 people. For a new place ...the booth seat was odd. Husband was lower than me. Very dark and could not read menu. My brother had a flashlight. We were hoping to catch some basketball...however TV 's can not be seen in restaurant area. Too bad. Food was OK. Many choices. I liked the beer....banana and clove hints ( second choice on the menu). Destiny was busy---envigorating. The need different menus if they choose this lighting choice.
