“Great Beer; good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

This place really does lager beers well, though I wished they served liters of beer. Though their menu seems eclectic and sophisticated (pulled pork sandwich on a challah bun; southwest-style egg rolls with cheese and corn) the ingredients are run of the mill and the preparation and presentation is unremarkable. What an incredible location though!

“Awful!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Went here while attending a security conference... Now I've been to a GB before and really like the food/beer... This one was particularly awful! Service was so slow, food came out cold, and was mediocre at best!

Server said they couldn't handle the large crowd, but the tables were mostly empty. Server was no where to be found, had to ask other servers to find her and it was terrible.

Overall was very upset about it all.

“Average Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Enjoyed the position of this branch of the chain restaurant and sat outside in the late afternoon sun.

The choice of beer and wine is fantastic but expect to pay for it. The food is okay, edible but certainly not that cheap considering the standard.

“always worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

We have visited this restaurant several times. I would recommend to get one of their beers which they brew in house. Quality of food is good, mostly even very good. Staff is most of the times very friendly. Nice atmosphere and good location. Fairly priced.
