Happy Hour – I have eaten here a few times and usually have a great experience, but last time I was there during happy hour ($3 beers) and I found a hair in my potato chip nachos.
Visual flair and fusion fare distinguish this upscale beer hall from smaller microbreweries. – In Short
Airy, industrial decor lends a lighter, more urban feel to Gordon Biersch than most beer halls. The bar may get crowded after 5pm, when a happy-hour crowd hoists a few pints of seasonal Bavarian-influenced beers. A menu of fusion and New American dishes include beer-friendly offerings like shrimp and chicken pot stickers, Moroccan-spiced lamb chops and the signature garlic french fries.
Good for a Beer & Bite to eat – GB is a good place to go to after work for a beer & bite to eat. The ambience is nice though it is a loud and you wll have to yell to be heard. The beer there is good and the food there is also good and they have good portion sizes.. GB has a wide selection of beers to choose fom and a good variety of bar foods. A pint of beer will run you around $6 and appitizers and salads are between $5-9, burgers around $7-10, and entrees around $12-17. Overall I would say it's a good place to stop by and grab a beer and bite to eat, but nothing special to write home about.
Fantastic – GB's in Pasadena CA has great atmosphere and most of all a "GREAT" selection of their micro brews, comparable to some of Europe's best. The food menu also has a variety of items to choose from, make sure and order the garlic fries for an appetizer or when your just hanging out enjoying their great tasting beer.
Just ok – I love the beer, but the food is not very good. Their garlic fries are not as flavorful as one might think, maybe I am just too big a garlic lover. Our pasta was bland and our burger was weird tasting.
