Gordon Biersch offers a little more upscale dining for a brewpub. Not fancy, but a step above your typical pub and grub place. The food is a little pricey, but Iíve always gotten great food here. I think some people arenít giving the Gordon Biersch proper credit for their beer. I think all their german lager beers are pretty solid. Nothing necessarily groundbreaking, but better than Granite City or some other chain brewpubs. Now, the knock on this Gordon Biersch location is that Flying Saucer is only a block away and has a better and more diverse selection of dozens of microbrews. With that being said, it is a nice 2nd option while in the Power and Light District, especially if the Flying Saucer is full.

Large place, tall ceilings, jazz motifs, long bar, kit behind some plate glass. Right in the heart of the refurbed Power and Light, which is all a bit sterile and mostly packed with out-of-the-box chains. Like this one. Still... some of us appreciate a well executed lager. On the other hand, the Flying Saucer is just around the corner.

Visited the Kansas City location in Sept. 2009. Sat outside but on the bar. Beers are really not very good. Think Iíll stick with the Saucer when Iím in KC.

umm, its a gordon biersch and weak one at that.. the bartender was really cool but there was something off about this place.. also, only one new beer from my last visit to a GB almost 5 years before, try harder guys .. and the maibock i got cost just under $8, thatís ridiculous but i stole the glass so i got some thing out of it, but i poured most of it out on the sidewalk as i walked away... pass on this place because the flying saucer is just on the opposite corner..

This was the typical mass brewed type big business beers. Nothing special, and a few tasted the same. We had a sampler and told our waitres that three actually looked and had similar tastes. She suggested we mix a couple and that wasnít a bad idea. So we ordered a couple of mixed pints and they were decent. An ok atmosphere, more of a family destination, which is ok, but not an exceptional brewery.

Modern micro in downtown KC. Good food selection. Beers average to above. Nothing really outstanding but all brews reflect their style. Can be loud and crowded. Several group sized tables for families and parties. Overall, good place to drink brew--recommended.

Popped in for a business lunch and a couple of beers. I walked, but there are public parking lots nearby, which are reasonably priced Iím sure. The proximity to the Flying Saucer means that this would be a reasonable stop for the beer traveller, though it would not be a worthwhile destination in its own right. Clean, slightly industrial feeling, the place was pretty crowded for lunch. The food was a little over-priced. A big bar, some pretty big tables if you have a posse, close proximity to the arena. The usual GB lineup and a couple of seasonals - average fare. Canít remember exactly what I had for lunch - it was tasty and the fries were very good. Wait staff was friendly and prompt.

I havenít eaten here so I will not rate the food but I have been in for beer on several occasions. The beer is much to talk about. Nothing special. The Schwartzbier was pretty good though and probably a little under rated on here.

Visited for lunch on Saturday, June 7th. I sat on the patio, which was nice - it faces the main Pedestrian walk way of the P&L District and allowed some excellent people watching. The interior restaurant seemed nice, modern brewpub style, wit a very large bar area. The service was quick and efficient, no complaints. The menu is larger than I remember GB menus being, and offers pretty much something for everyone. Burgers, Pizzas, Apps, Seafood, etc, etc. The Mahi-Mahi sandwich I had was fine. Nothing exceptional, but decently made and decently fresh. The garlic fries are nice, and had more garlic than I was expecting, which I liked. The beer was decent, and made for nice sipping on a great afternoon. Overall, a nice option in the P&L District.

My first visit to the new KCP&L District. Roughly 25 min. wait at 8:30pm on a Saturday, parking was a bit time-consuming but ultimately cheap ($2). Obviously caters to the ultra-hip KC nightlifer. The 2 beers I tried were fairly well-rendered, as was the dinner. A little expensive overall - beers are $5-$5.50 for .5 liter servings. Our service was pretty good. Worth a stop but not going to be a new regular place for me to visit.
