GB is in a pretty good spot, close to casino's and Bourbon St. It's a nice place, good to watch a football game. It wasn't super busy, we were seated right away, and our waiter was not very attentive. Several times we had to put conversation on hold to watch out for him to get some service. At a brewery/restaurant, I don't find it a good thing to keep patrons waiting for a brew. The selection was below par. They only offer about 4 beers year round, with 1 seasonal from what I could tell. The food wasn't bad. Had the garlic fries and I would reccomend going for the regular ones...garlic was the ONLY seasoning on them. Price isnt bad. Beers were $4 and the meals were below $12 for most things.
May go back, but likely not often.

Located next to Harrah's casino, very easy to find with the big street sign. The place has the typical Gordon Biersch atmosphere which is clean and modern. There is a load of wood here and a bar that can seat about 15. Private room exists for special parties. Loads of TVs showing sports.
The beer selection has all the standard GB beers and on this visit I had the Maibock which was good. The service was prompt and friendly. I have eaten in other GB restaurants in the past, but I did not on this visit.
This is not a bad place to stop for a change in pace from the usual French Quarter bar vibe.

The atmosphere and setting are nice and make you feel you are at a nicer place than it really is. The beer selection is mostly limited to what they make, which can be cool but also a bummer. The food, while very good, can get a bit up there in price! We went because we were staying a block a way.

Gordon Biersch strikes me as a typical above average chain brewery. I went on a Monday night during a work conference. The crowd was sparse but had conventioneers and a couple families who had come over from the casino. I went to the bar and ordered a hefe and a bock. Both were good but not mind boggling brews. At $5.50 they seemed reasonable. The place was open and spacious although we decided to sit on the patio right outside the restaurant. They did set up tvs and fans outside as well, so that was a nice feature. Service was good and beer knowledgeable. There were a good six or seven taps of varying styles. Overall, I would pop here again, but there are better ways to experience New Orleans beer culture. This strikes me as a nice place to grab and after conference day beer.

Came here with my wife and some of her colleges for a late dinner. A very big place on a somewhat busy evening. It took a long time to get a table, and we ended up going outside on the patio section.
The waitress took awhile to come over but she eventually did and took our orders. They had about 8 different beers on tap that they brew, but I just got the seasonal, a bock.
My wife and I split a pizza and each got a drink, 2 others split appetizers and one other got a steak. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food, but the guy who got his steak had to get it custom made because they apparently ran out of the cut he had ordered so a kitchen staff member came out to see if he wanted a different cut same style or just order something else. I'd say that's good customer service and give them a higher rating, but our waitress just kept disappearing. In fact all of the outside waitress/waiters did.
Everything was pretty good but a little pricey. I'm sure they can easily get away with it though because it's located by all the convention centers, tons of hotels, and it's right next door to a Ruth's Chris. After we got our bill we went to the bar to pay because we hadn't seen the waitress in such a long time and we didn't want to just leave the money outside.
All in all I guess it was ok, but I'd be perfectly fine with not going back.

We went here on the Saturday of Mardi Gras weekend, and it was one of the better late lunches that I've had.
The service was a bit slower than we wanted, but with a table of 10, it wasn't unbearable. The food was spectacular, and the 5 house brews (one seasonal making 6) were all well done. The seasonal was the Mardi Gras Bock, which went over well with those that ordered it (not my favorite style). The beers poured all come out to .5 L, which is definitely a healthy amount.
The beer that stood out to me the most was the Hefeweizen, which had a real nice blend of bananas and clove in it. and the Czech Pilsner was a fantastic example of the style.
With two beers, an appetizer, and an entree, my bill was about $50 (with tip), so I feel that this was reasonable. Definitely somewhere to stop if you are in New Orleans!
