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.

This is a nice upscale brewpub/restaurant. They always have about a half dozen or so fresh brewed beers plus one or two seasonal brews. The food menu changes frequently, I have visited this place about twice a year for the past 6 years running and I have never looked at the same menu twice. That aside, the food is always very good and that is the real appeal of this place. Of beers I have sampled here the Hefe is very good and authentic, the marzen is mediocre and the alt-bier is exceptional.

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!

Beer here is nothing exceptional but people seem to love it. Full bar and a íhigh endí brewpub. Even for the style Iím not stoked on their beers and only go if forced for a happy hour. Lots of yuppies who think theyíre drinking fantastic beer, but itís a chain and is big. But what a waste of brew hardware....

I was hesitant to try Gorden Biersch because I heard it was a "meat market." I went at lunchtime and it wasnít too bad (although having valet parking in a huge parking lot is nothing short of absurd.) The decor is upscale and the space is quite impressive. The service was very good and attentive. The food is really good and did not take long to get after ordering. I tried the crab cake sandwich and a reuben, both of which were excellent. The real treat was the bread pudding...maybe the best Iíve ever had...and they serve half order desserts at lunch which I think is a novel idea. Anyway, the beers were average to slightly above average but nothing offensive. Although, it was somewhat interesting trying 6 lagers in one sitting. recommended.

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.

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.

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.
