this place is up in boca park next door to cheesecake factory. it has a cool porch for later night seshes with a fire. as far as the beer...its ok. i had a decent shwarzbier and they only had a few on tap like the marzen and pils. the food was pretty good, had an awesome wedge salad and some solid pasta. clientele is typical of the the area, the p.f. changs/cheesecake factory power lunch crowd who really dig shopping at the the great indoors. this review sucks i know but the place dosnt have much to write about. go a mile down the street instead and have a dubbel or springfest at chicago brewing company and thank me later.

Located next to a Kona Grill and a Cheese Cake Factory. There is a nice red stone facade and a pleasant terrace in the front.
The large curved bar is to your right and the floor-to-ceiling patio doors let in a lot of natural light.
Dark wood beams, tan walls, black stools, exposed stone and lots of wood make this an attractive place. They also have an open kitchen and rooms for groups. The bathrooms have those cool raised bowl sinks. This is a well-put together space.
They have the usual 5 standard GB offerings and the seasonal was a Maibock.
The service at the bar was friendly and prompt. I would describe it as chatty in a good way.
I like the mix of music that they had on. Any place where I can hear Ray LaMontaine and Gomez works for me.
Not sure, but the menu seemed a little larger with more salads, fish and wine offerings than the Midwest GBs.
All-in-all a decent stop if you find yourself in the area.

I've been to Gordon Biersch a few times and I've never been disappointed. Solid food and beer. They usually have a selection of 6 or so solid German beers. On my most recent visit my dad and I had a marzen and schwarzbier and both were good. The food is pretty typical stuff but well executed. The fish and chips are good and their garlic fries are the best I've had. The restaurant itself is nice and clean and has a nice vibe to it. We sat outside since it was such a nice day. Great place to have lunch and a good beer.

A fan of both their beers and restaurants this is the new neighborhood location in Summerlin. Opened earlier this year and was quick to visit and keep on coming back. Located in the upscale Boca Park shopping center across the street from Suncoast and the new Queensridge Towers, a beautiful part of Las Vegas.
Walking in it seems small, very narrow. Good sized outdoor seating area with misters for the summer and heat lamps for the winter. Once inside the size becomes larger as though it is narrow, the seating goes back far. You walk in to the bar/cocktail area. Smaller bar, seats maybe 15 (rough guess) with a few TV's. Cocktail area is nice, a few booths on the outside and bar tables throughout the center. Dining area towards back is a combo of booths and tables. Very nice decor, has a "outdoor" feel as lots of earthy tones present. Replica vintage beer poster on the walls, including some from Spaten adds a nice touch.
Food is a little classier than a typical bar/brewpub. Some sophisticated items on the menu but nothing too crazy. Good ol' burgers and pizza for a familiar touch. Beer is grerat. I love their beer and although its not brewed at this location, its still very fresh. Each beer is served in .5 L glasses and each style has its own glass with is a very nice touch and helps to differentiate the drinks. Other beers and drinks available at bar but if your here, stick with their beer. They also have a nice rewards program for frequent visitors (like credit card points) and great happy hour deals. Mechandise available as well.
Overall a great place, it borders on the prices side but dinner for two can be done at a reasonable prices. Its easy to blow past that though if you an appetizer, desert and a few beers. A great atmosphere and friendly staff makes this location a sure bet.

There is definitely a different vibe to this location as opposed to the Gordon Biersch on Paradise. Definitely a more local hangout for the many people that live in the NW part of Las Vegas. Along with the neighboring Kona Grill, these places can get packed with locals on the weekends. Their beers are nothing earth-shattering. Just pretty solid German bier style offerings including the seasonal maibock that I sampled. There is consistancy in beer quality with the other location. It is worth a stop when on a beer tour of the NW like Jimbo suggested. This location is very close to the recently opened Bleu Gourmet (highly recommended) that hides behind the Carraba's Italian restaurant right down the street, another pub crawl option.

This brewery restaurant opened in February 2007. They serve the beers brewed at the sister location on Paradise in Las Vegas. The pub is located across Rampart from the Suncoast casino and near the adjacent Rampart Casino, just south of the Summerlin Parkway. They are in the Boca Park shopping center, and are next door to the Cheesecake Factory.
There is a fairly large patio for outdoor seating, with glass door separating the patio from the interior of the bar and restaurant. The bar itself is shaped like a cresent and seats about 15 in high-backed chairs. There are also some long, narrow tables and some smaller tables in the bar area, and there are tables and booths going back to the rear of this narrow, rectangular room. The open kitchen is visible in the back. There are narrow, hanging lamps, and a few ceiling fans. The walls are painted in muted pastel colors, and behind the bar as well as in the front, there are some walls made up of tan stone slates. I counted at least 6 wide, flatscreen TVs in the bar area, all showing various sports.
There were six Gordon Biersch beers on-tap: Export, Märzen, Blonde Bock, Schwarzbier, Hefeweizen, and Maibock (which was a seasonal). The beers are served in 500-mL glassses with metered lines on them, as in Europe. Some of the glasses even have the name of the particular beer on them. The price was $4.75 for 0.5 L. They also have a full bar with wine and spirits, and I saw at least a few macro bottles.
There were two bartenders on duty and a host of servers taking care of the tables. The bartenders were friendly enough, and were at least knowledgeable about the GB beers, if not about beer in general.
The menu looked interesting with some not-so-typical pub items. The prices looked somewhat above average for the food, but I did not have a chance to sample anything on this visit. I did factor the food prices I observed into my "value" rating, however.
Overall, a comfortable place with decent to good brewpub beer. It has a somewhat different vibe than at the other Las Vegas location, but they are both devoid of video poker, which you will find at every other brewpub in town. If you find yourself up this way, it is worth a stop, and they are sort of on the cresent tour of Big Dog's Draft House, Tenaya Creek, and Chicago Brewing Co., if you want to do a NW-of-Las-Vegas pub crawl.
Last visit 4-30-07.

This place opened up in 2007 in an upscale strip mall across the street from Sun Coast Casino and near the Angel Park & Badlands Golf Courses in the Summerlin section of Las Vegas. It's also about 5 miles down Rampart from Chicago Brewing Company. This place does not brew its own beer, but it gets all the beer from the Gordon Biersch on Paradise in LV.
There is a large outdoor patio overlooking the parking lot that was full when we entered. The bar is rather large with seating for about 20. There are many high tops just off the bar too. The place is large having many table on two seperate elevated levels. There is a private dining room in the back near the restrooms too that could fit about 50 people. Modern wooden decor with a large rock wall and high ceilings made a nice atmosphere.
There were the usual GB beers on tap - Marzen, Gold Export, Hefe, Dunkles, and Schwarzbier - along with the special seasonal Maibock. Beers were of good quality and tasty especially the Maibock. A large liquor stock lined the wall behind the bar.
Food wise we had a lunch that the entire group enjoyed. Nothing spectacular but overall it was good. The service was good, as the waitress explained the beer styles when questioned. She was quick with the refills and food service too. She explained all beers were brewed at the sister locale in LV.
Not worth a trip from the strip to visit this place since the beers are brewed by the GB by the Strip. But if you are visiting Chicago Brewing Co. or playing a round of golf in the area, its not a bad place to stop.
