“Fun Atmosphere, Great Appetizers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

I visited Gordon Biersch for the first time last week and I was very impressed. The restaurant - and the restrooms! - were clean and welcoming. We sat at the bar and were able to sample a couple beers before deciding which kind to have. The combo appetizer platter (pork sliders, garlic fries and eggrolls) tasted fresh and not at all greasy. The full menu seemed to have a lot of options. The bartender was friendly and personable, and very attentive. I'll definitely go back!

“Delicious meal, great service, at a reasonable price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Four of us walked into Destiny Mall looking for someplace to eat on a Sunday night. Gordon Biersch was the first place we came to and we liked what we saw on the posted menu.

The service was fantastic throughout our entire stay. The menu offered a nice variety of full dinners and lighter fare. There were options for vegetarians as well. Some of us went for a full dinner and some went for the lighter fare. All of our meals were cooked to perfection.

Portion sizes were perfect! We are getting tired of restaurants that dish out twice as much as an ordinary person can eat. For dessert, they offer mini-desserts as well. We did not go for dessert but were pleased to see mini-desserts were offered.

The prices were very reasonable. We will eat here again should we pass through Syracuse, NY.

“First Time Eating at one of the New Mall Restaurants...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

First of the new restaurants in the mall that I've tried. Pretty solid, I had fish & chips, my father had the cheeseburger. My father thought the cheeseburger was better than Zebb's burgers (uhoh!). Service was average, could have been a little quicker, but it was in the middle of lunch and it was pretty busy. Sorry I can't give any reviews on beer because I don't drink. .

“Returned for a Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Last month we visited here for drinks only, and vowed to return for dinner as the menu looked great. We had a wonderful meal. Joe was our server. He was knowledgeable about individual beers. We decided to get a flight of beers to help us make our decision. Although all the beers were great we stayed with our original hefeweizen that we had previously.
We started with a Chef's Sampler Appetizer that included calamari, southwest egg rolls, and chicken wings. It was pricey (16.95), but there was a lot of food on the plate. Certainly more than we usually would pay for an appetizer.
We ordered Cajun Pasta and Lobster and Shrimp Mac and Cheese. The Mac and Cheese was fantastic! The sauce was not too heavy-but way too much to eat after the appetizers. It was nice to bring home for another meal. Hubby ended the dinner with Strawberry Cheesecake-which he said was actually better than the Cheesecake he had eaten at Cheesecake Factory.
In all-great atmosphere, delicious food, and an all around wonderful evening!
