I had the Cajun Pasta and it was delicious. Flavorful and spicy without being hot. I tasted a friend's bratwurst and it was really good too. Service was attentive and quick. Big place and very busy but we had no wait for a table. I would definitely eat here again.

Had dinner and drinks with my son, his wife and my husband. We sat outside, upstairs with a view of the street and the city of Tempe. It was beautiful! Our food was delicious (you should try the lobster/shrimp pasta!) and the atmosphere made it so relaxing. We will definitely visit again.

Great food. Great selection of beer and wine as well. Eat inside or on the balcony which overlooks Mill Ave. Highly recommend.

We were in Tempe for some shopping and looked online for a place to eat and came up with this restaurant. Entrance was on a side street off Mill Ave near the ASU campus. The bar and restaurant were on the second floor using a long flight of stairs but there was an elevator if that were an impediment. They... More

I liked Gordon Biersch, it's a chain joint, it has a primo location with a great view of Mill Ave. plus Gordon Biersch had a super nice patio. We are Patio-People, and this place really does the trick for us. We had two great meals, I tasted both and found the food decent for a chain restaurant, we had a... More

Had dinner at Gordon Biersch recently, and other than the good service, we were disappointed with the food items that we ordered. In our opinion, the food quality has slipped over the last couple of years. The location was convenient but there are better options for us in the immediate area.

The food is pretty good. I had fish and chips. My business colleague had the tacos. Nothing special, but the salt and pepper french fries were tasty. No attempt to cross-sell an appetizer and no offer or even suggestion of desert, so don't worry about a hard sell. The kitchen was s-l-o-w. It took a long, long, long time to... More

Nice place for an hamburger or a taco. Definitely not food to write home about, but in the Arizona culinary desert one has to eat. Portions were large, the water didn't smell of chlorine, my sons liked their food and the ambiance was nice. Beside that, it is a nice location in the hearth of Tempe.

This was our first visit to a Gordon Biersch and it will not be our last. Jenna, our server in the bar area (main restaurant area was not open) was stellar. Nothing we asked for was a problem for her, nothing lessened her smile. Gluten Sensitive menu? Not a problem. Extra cloth napkins? Not a problem. A dish of ice... More
