Our dinner was delicious! Even down to the dessert we were pleased. The waiter was friendly and prompt, beer was good and the atmosphere was nice. We were seated quickly and food came quickly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

Going away lunch on a workday. It took about 30 minutes to get the checks settled. That's a long time on a workday. The food was good, as usual.

Waitress was great ! After dinner she assisted with our Black Friday growler fills for the weekend.

The smaller glass size allowed for enjoying different beers which were all excellent.
Waiter was perfect. He was laid back and attentive, but not intrusive.
Appetizers were slick with oils and burger came out very rare (not ordered that way).
Definitely not a $ restaurant if you order anything other than an entree.

The food was good. Our waiter didn't seem to know what was on the menu, or what specific beers were at that location. And we waited a while for the beers, although not an unreasonable amount of time for the food. Menu is extensive. As it is a convenient meeting place for people gathering from various locations around the region, I'd go there again. Plenty of free parking in the adjacent garage and they had no difficulty space wise accommodating a large group.

The hostess was great about the reservation process to seating our party. We enjoyed sitting on the faux patio. The service was good. It took a while for the waiter to take our order. Food was okay. Beverages were good.

I especially like the cocktails and of course the beer. They offer specials if you sign up for their mailing list. It was worth the 30-minute drive. My 87-year-old mother & 6-year-old grandson both enjoyed it.

The atmosphere is average. The waiter was slightly above average. The kitchen does not pay attention to detail. The food was ok.

I made reservations on open table for 10:30pm; got to the restaurant and was told their kitchen was closing!
Why would open table allow a reservation for a time a restaurants kitchen was closed???

Experience was not up to GB standards. Had a reservation, but forced to sit at open seating bar area for reasons I don’t understand—was told there were no dining tables (then how did I have a reservation??). Burger and fries were not warm or well prepared. Saving grace was the server. I did not complain about my experience because she was working hard to cover an area that seemed to large and she did so with a smile to all customers.

Something is amiss in the Tysons Gordon Biersch kitchen. Their food was SO SALTY on our recent visit, we couldn't eat it. When we mentioned it to the manager, he said that is how Corporate wants them to salt/season food. We'll be dining elsewhere in the future.

I made a reservation for 10:15, but they stop serving dinner at 10:00, so we could only get the very limited bar menu. Other than that, the service and food were great.

Easter dinner with a small child in a high chair. Perfect for us - we didn't have to be concerned if the child fussed - it would not have bothered anyone. Our server was great - she brought the child's food out first so as to keep her occupied and happy. Our food was very good, and we shared a nice desert after our main meal. Good spot conveniently located in the Mall at Tysons.

Took like 20 min before a waiter came to take drink orders...he was good once we got drinks, but it took forever and we had a reservation. That’s just bad management. This happens nearly every time I go there too. There were cleared empty tables and there seemed to be a lot of people waiting to get in. It was ridiculous.

The restaurant/chain needs a lot of work, from the host/greeting, to the inattentive server, to the lackluster food options.

I don’t know where to begin... Our steaks were basically burnt and dry, empty glasses weren’t being removed or refilled, I reserved the table and mentioned it was a birthday and then even told the waiter who’s the birthday person but nothing was done for her. The 2 tables next to us had their desserts brought out with candles and happy birthday sang to them (felt bad for our birthday guest) and we even order each dessert on the menu, a waiter was nowhere to be found to order more.

I’m afraid this is a one-shot deal. Food quality is not so good. Chicken wings are tiny. The bratwurst is not as good as supermarket brands. Even the stout is subpar, too thin for a good stout. It is cheaper than its neighboring restaurants though, but I’d rather go next door, in any direction.

Good German food and very good German style beer. This place can tends to fill up on weekend nights with Tysons mall shoppers so make a reservation through OpenTable. Weeknights tend to be far less crowded.
