Had some time to kill before going to the "K" for a ball game and found this on the GPS as a brewery. Didn't know anything about it so thought I would stop. Once inside realized this was no local brewery. The atmosphere was very upscale and not very laid back. Brighter interior with a lot of TV's on but not really to sports and the like, more liberal news outlets (not making a political observation at this point). The bartender was nice enough but very pushy on the seasonal Mai bock that was being served. I tried it and it will be in the review section. My buddy who was with me (and doesn't drink- I respect that of him) wanted a water and the bar tender really gave him a lot of crap about it which was not cool. I did stay for another brew as I had the time which was good. The price (none of which are posted) for 2 beers was over $10 and they were both pilsner glass size. Also, they only had 5 beers on tap which was a thin selection and none for purchase (other than growlers). All in all I would avoid this place in KC or the other 100 locations I see they have.

Special occasion family lunch plans took us to Gordon Biersch in the Power and Light District. No one in the party had been there before, but with such a good reputation, it was worth a try.

Atmosphere is what one would expect for P&L. Dark wood, sleek, very big and open with lots of outdoor seating available both to the street side and to the Live! area.

I started with the beer sampler. The seasonal was an octoberfest. I really liked the Hefe and the Marzen was respectable as well. They represent a good variety and have a great example in each of the styles.

Our servers were great and gave us plenty of time for a relaxed meal while being very attentive, but not hovering.

The menu was great with everything from cheeseburgers up to fresh seafood. The bavarian pretzels and calamari appetizers were decent, but my blackened ahi tacos were incredible. I expect to dream about them tonight.

If this was not next door to Flying Saucer, I might make it a regular spot. For most occasions, I will choose the Saucer over Biersch. But the food at Gordon Biersch is enough to draw me back in from time to time.

I went here with some friends while in the Power and Light District. It is not a typical brew pub. It is very commercial and slightly uptight. I did not like that. My friend tried to order a Bud Light (yes, I bit my tongue) and the waiter was not very nice about it. He did his best to convince everyone in my party to try a beer brewed by them. I had planned to anyways, of course, and was not disappointed. The price, however, was on the steep end. I felt the same about the food. I think the next time I am in the area I will head to a different bar/restaurant with a much better selection of food and price of beer.

I had not been to a Gordon Biersch in quite some time so I thought since this one was right by the Flying Saucer. I would give it a shot. I was suprised there were not that many people in there. My bartender was a little grough at first but did get better. He suggested the sampler and thought it would be good to try some of the beers in a diferent location to see if there was a difference and for the most part they were the same. It is much better to get them at the brewery than the bottles at secialty store. The atmoshere was typical chain brewpub.
