The beer at GB hasn't kept up with the times. You'll only think the beer is great if you're still drinking bud and miller. The beer is OK, but if you really crave interesting beer your you're better off at the Rose and Crown a couple blocks away.

The food is decent generic american food. Good burgers, flank steak, a pulled pork. Prices are reasonable for what you get. Since the place isn't at the top of the list anymore, it's a cinch to get a table even on a weekend.

Usually people go here with a small group and get a little rowdy. There are sports screens, but it's not exactly a sports bar. If you're looking for an unwinding spot where you can pick up some wings and be in a crowd, this is an OK spot - although NOLA is better.

I wanted this to be special since I had'nt seen my friend in a year of so but is was average service & average menu... to my dismay. I will say, he picked the spot because he works in Palo Alto. He had never been there, he thought is would be easy to find in the middle of horrendous Cali traffic. I've been to other G. B. places around the country; I should have known.
Kind of a cookie cutter establishment... same 'ol, same 'ol... minimal character & trying to ride the micro brew trend but not doing a very good job. Our waiter had to look at a list for the seasonal brew../ Come-on guys you're a brewing Company

Not much more to be said, these chain restaurants serve the same bar food and have the same bland beers all over the country. If you need a place to hang out with friends, this is a good place, but if you want good food, you should pass on this restaurant.
