Visited November 15, 2014.
Stopped in on the way out of town to see what the new seasonal is. The Winter Bock isnít out yet but instead they had a blonde bock. Not a fan of that one. They also had a red IPA of sorts. The hefe wasnít bad which is about what it always is. This is in a busy shopping center (with a Bevmo in it) so parking can be a pain. The service is friendly. I canít comment on the food since I didnít eat but I assume itís the same as all the other locations.

Man, Iíve been here a shit-ton of times. This one doesnít set itself apart from the others in the chain/franchise/whatever. The food is pretty darn good, the beer is usually narrow in scope but well crafted and the staff is usually solid, although their beer IQ is typically pretty low. But a great place and Iím sure Iíll be back for more soon.

This was OK, not as good as the Seattle branch I visited last year. Lots of space and a few different beers on, it was pretty relaxing and seemed friendly. I didnít try the food so canít comment. Convenient for also visiting BevMo.

Situated around Hotel circle, which appears to be an extremely dense area of over-commercialized area of chain restaurants. At least it fits in, yeah? Inside is fairly typical inside. Lots of shiny brass and dark wood, focused decorative lighting. Pasta/Pizza/Burgers for food. Had a swordfish special that was decent. Only 1 seasonal (Vienna). Cool looking beer garden, but it was a bit chilly outside still. This is a very trendy and upscale. Cool view of the large, modern shiny brewing equipment.

Visited on a Tuesday, and the place was packed. Sat at a back table and had a quick beer and sandwich. Beer and food selection was very good with quick service.

I was very pleasantly surprised at my visit here yesterday! Iíd had other experiences with this change that were all average at best and so I was predisposed in that direction. Indeed at first it seemed as thought that was the case again. The spiral ductwork, high quasi-industrial ceilings, stainless steel brewery out on display, large spaces. We had a table in one of the several dining areas with ours being across an aisle from the kitchen so we could watch the cooking and enjoy the aromas. Our server was pleasant, knowledgeable, & helpful. Floor was carpeted, tables were nicely done in wood. There were several TVs on tuned to sports but not too loud. Nice background buzz. Good vibe. The two beers that I had: the Oktoberfest and the Schwartzbier were outstanding. They also had a full service bar and a heated patio. I will be looking forward to returning here someday when the opportunity arises. Great place!

Pretty much just what youíd expect from a chain brewery. Food and service were average, but the beer was below average. I wonít be back again.

A nice place smack dab in the heart of Mission Valley. They specialize in lagers and preppie food. At around 5 PM, the place turns into a Meat Market. If you like that scene, get dressed up a bit.

Blah, Gordon Biersch a chain brewpub, I went here once when I first moved to town and since Iíve basically ignored it as it should be ignored.

Nice place in a great location. Food was good, but nothing special. Service was very good, beers were good.
