Until this visit, I hadn't been to a Gordon Biersch since 2002, and back then I thought it was high-class beer. How things change...
This one has a nice facility in a great location near the arena and ball-park. Somehow seemed way less unique and innovative than it did in 2002. The menu didn't look like it had changed a bit (BBQ Chx Pizza, garlic fries, etc) nor did the beers. The beer selection is pretty short, and boring. The beer descriptions seemed geared toward making them seem more exciting than they actually were - schwarzbier is dark - true, but tastes boring. Czech pilsner was probably the most exciting beer on the menu, and far from thrilling.
Service was just average, and the food was pretty good. I think time has passed this place by - seemed to me like an Applebee's with slightly better beer. I will likely be back, but due to great location and lack of nearby competition rather than for a love of the place.

The food here is great and you get a lot of decent atmosphere from Nationwide arena crowd. I frequent whenever I take in a Blue Jackets game myself. The only con is that they only serve their six house brews, but all of them were decent to impressive. I thought the Czech Pils was the best of their 6. Definitely recommend.

I have been here several times before and after Blue Jackets games. As I walk in there is a rectangular bar to the right with high top tables and booths around it. Straight ahead is the dining room and kitchen, which is open to view the cooking process. I have always sat at or around the bar.
It is very clean and modern looking. They had the six regulars on tap with the seasonal tap being a tripel. The regular beers are German styles, mostly lagers. The menu has a nice variety, pasta, pizza, seafood, steaks, sandwiches. My date and I both struggled to narrow our selection of food down to one dish each.
I settled and a pasta dish which wasn't the best meal that I have had there. My date seemed to enjoy her dish. The wait staff was very attentive. We had three people stop by during our visit to make sure we were getting what we needed.
This is a nice place to dine. The food is better than the beer selection. The beers are good but not enough variety for me. The location contributes to the frequency of my visits more than anything.
