I visit at least once a month. I had the best chicken gumbo soup. Everything the chef's create is delicious. Love this place!

Gordon Biersch is a popular eatery in the Mission Valley area of San Diego. So much so that we have to beat the lunchtime eaters there. The food is delish and the custom beers they have are really yummy. Go ahead and try 'em. One warning, though: The service is really slow during lunch. Just relax and enjoy your beer(s).

I expected great beer and I ordered the Belgium style triple, was simple tasteless like water, no carbonated at all, my friend ordered another one and was also the same, we call the owner and he allowed to taste some others, all the same. The food was reasonable good but when we pay the beers we're charged so I gave... More

I had to toss a coin as to where I wanted to eat. Well it started raining so I made a decision. The place is very busy and popular, I sat in the lounge. The service was first class. I felt good to eat in a place that served German Food. I had not had any great German food in... More

They have a large selection of beers so this is the place for beer lovers. I'm not a beer person but was provided a sample of 2 light beers to choose from. The waiter was great and seemed knowledgeable about the many beers. The beers weren't bad but I opted for a strawberry lemonade which was nice and fresh. They... More

Good food, good beer. Nice atmosphere. Very accommodating to a family with a small child. I would go there again. Parking is a bit cramped but they do have valet parking.

Service started off poorly but I think it was because we came during a shift change. Once we got service, it was excellent. We did the sampler beer platter which was interesting. We ordered several different menu items to try and all were hot, fresh, and good. This place is centrally located and a $6 uber ride from the hotels... More

We went here with a large group and our server handled things quite well. I enjoyed their house brew and a chicken schnitzel. Good food and a good time with friends and family. I expected decent quality and got it. It was not too noisy though an open room, which was nice for conversation.
