I had a spare hour or two while in Columbus, so dropped by GB to see what was on tap and have a pint. Large open place, with a large bar area, separate restaurant, and outdoor patio. I sat at the bar, and was greeted by a friendly waitress/bartender.
Midafternoon, so not alot of other customers and service was good. Five regular beers on tap plus a seasonal - Winterbock, which was pretty good. Nice description of their beers and styles in the menu.
Although this is the first Gordon Biersch I have visited, it feels like they will all be about the same. (Not that there's anything wrong with that).
Large menu that seems to have a large emphasis on the food (fancy/eclectic?) Also large wine list, martinis, etc. I would like to see the beer be the focus, not food and drinks, but that's just me.
I may stop here for a bite on my next trip if I am pressed for time.

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.
