a simple place with simple yet enjoyable beers...the bisque is spicy and good and the pizza ain't bad either...the brew master is a nice guy and the bartender was cool as they come...lagers live here!
Seems to be quite laid back when I went, early afternoon, and the to go beers is a great feature considering it is New Orleans..
Is right across from a big casino and only a short walk from the French quarter and Crescent City brewpub...
the Hefeweizen really stands out and they try have a seasonal on tap ( i missed out by one week )..
..Overall: a nice simple place with some simple, good beer and some decent food.. if you are in the area and haven't really gone Gordon, give it a whirl!

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.
