Unaware that Gordon Biersch was a chain, we walked into the brewery hoping for some good brews and delicious pub food. Upon entering, we were promptly seated at a high table and stool. The restaurant was cozy, with warm paint on the walls and fabric on the chairs, dark wood, and dim lighting throughout. Overall, the restaurant offers an intimate and comfy vibe, although it also is quite modern and clean.
After checking out the interior of the restaurant, we examined our menus and ordered our food. The brewery serves typical American pub fare along with their own selection of house-made brews. Since it was Lent, we decided to order the veggie burgers with a tasting flight. Our veggie burgers were tasty, even though they ended up falling apart, but the garlic fries were especially delicious. Our tasting flight included several of Gordon-Biersch’s beers, each of them brewed in a traditional style. All of the beers were refreshing takes on each style.
Despite the fact that Gordon-Biersch is a chain, we enjoyed our time at the restaurant. Our food was well-made and, although the restaurant may not offer the most unique experience, we ate a nice meal in a cozy setting perfect for a cool autumn evening or an intimate gathering of friends.
