GB is in a pretty good spot, close to casino's and Bourbon St. It's a nice place, good to watch a football game. It wasn't super busy, we were seated right away, and our waiter was not very attentive. Several times we had to put conversation on hold to watch out for him to get some service. At a brewery/restaurant, I don't find it a good thing to keep patrons waiting for a brew. The selection was below par. They only offer about 4 beers year round, with 1 seasonal from what I could tell. The food wasn't bad. Had the garlic fries and I would reccomend going for the regular ones...garlic was the ONLY seasoning on them. Price isnt bad. Beers were $4 and the meals were below $12 for most things.
May go back, but likely not often.

Stopped in while in New Orleans on a Tuesday night (8/10/10) simply because it was close to my hotel and right off, noticed that it was your basic cookie-cutter chain with the exception that it was a brew pub. Typical chain feel, no real vibe to the place. The bar in the back looked like it seated 20 or so and had a couple of TV's but nothing out of the ordinary that would make it stand out. The food was what I expected, nothing exceptional and average at best but I thought was a bit pricey. The service was average, but had no knowledge of the beer at all.
I tried one beer while I was there, the Golden Export, and thought that it was a decent attempt at an English Pale Ale (Boddington's is what I thought of, but certainly not as good), but subsequently noted that it was a different style. But overall, a decent beer.
Overall, if I am ever back in New Orleans, I may stop in just to try the other beers, but I won't make a special trip. Average at best.

This place is a typical chain found at the end of Poydras in the Harrah's complex. The patrons were mainly noisy sportfans. I came here on a Tuesday night, and it was surprisingly crowded. This is probably because it was Game 3 of the NBA Finals. Lots of tourists.
The service wasn't great. The bartender gave me a menu & then asked what kind of beer I wanted, when I looked up to tell him, he was gone. He came back a few minutes later & I ordered the Schwarzbier, the only brew I had. Based on that one beer, I thought the quality was good. The bar only has their 4 signature brews, a seasonal, and the few guest beers are all macros. I did like the outdoor patio behind the bar. There were windows cut out behind the bar so that people on the patio could place orders.

a simple place with simple yet enjoyable beers...the bisque is spicy and good and the pizza ain't bad either...the brew master is a nice guy and the bartender was cool as they come...lagers live here!
Seems to be quite laid back when I went, early afternoon, and the to go beers is a great feature considering it is New Orleans..
Is right across from a big casino and only a short walk from the French quarter and Crescent City brewpub...
the Hefeweizen really stands out and they try have a seasonal on tap ( i missed out by one week )..
..Overall: a nice simple place with some simple, good beer and some decent food.. if you are in the area and haven't really gone Gordon, give it a whirl!

This is a typical chain brewpub. Imagine an Applebees that makes beer. Connected to the Harrah's hotel and the casino. Pretty much what you would expect for such a place, and sterile overall. A big area in front for diners. The bar is towards the back, and a large patio outside. Brewing equipment can be seen to the left of the bar. Just a cookie cutter brewpub.
The service was decent. The bartender was fast and friendly, though did not seem to know a lot about the beer. I had some appitizers, fried calamari. They were tough as rubber, and had no flavor. Lots of other stuff on the menu. Steaks, seefood, bugers. Pretty much the same stuff at any other location.
On to the beer. There are a handful of German beers. Most everything is watery and bland. Nothing bad, just by the numbers. The best was the Schwarzbier. Everything else tasted almost the same.
Overall, this place does not have much character. I am not really a fan. Go to Crescent instead.

I stopped in here right after I arrived in NO, since it was on my way to the convention center. There were a couple of tables by the front door and a large outside seating area in back behind the bar. Fairly large dining room and a separate bar area in the rear with some booths and the brewhouse visible to one side. Beers were decent, with 6 (including a seasonal Irish red ale) available during my visit. Prices were reasonable - my 23oz hefe was $5 - especially this close to the convention center. Service was adequate, but the bartenders seemed a bit uninterested in patrons. Food was mostly mediocre pub fare, but portions were large.
A pretty standard chain brewpub, not that that's a bad thing at all.

I really do like the atmosphere here, clean and has a very nice outside bar seats you can sit with a few pints.
The beer quality was pretty good. I had all the beers they had, and none were really lacking. The seasonal beer was a nice crisp festbier.
Service was good. It was slow, but not horribly. The waiter knew the beers well enough.
Selection is ok. I liked all the beers offered, but the only ale was their hefewiesen. Not to say that is bad, but with only six beers, some of the beers were quite similar in flavor.
Food. In my opinion, not good. It was overpriced, but did not stand out at all. It's do-able if youre on vacation, but i wouldnt want to come here often for the food. Go somewhere else.
Value is pretty good, between $3.50-$4.50 a pint.
Overall, they do make some nice beers, so i do want to go back... but it's not on my top list.

Came here with my wife and some of her colleges for a late dinner. A very big place on a somewhat busy evening. It took a long time to get a table, and we ended up going outside on the patio section.
The waitress took awhile to come over but she eventually did and took our orders. They had about 8 different beers on tap that they brew, but I just got the seasonal, a bock.
My wife and I split a pizza and each got a drink, 2 others split appetizers and one other got a steak. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food, but the guy who got his steak had to get it custom made because they apparently ran out of the cut he had ordered so a kitchen staff member came out to see if he wanted a different cut same style or just order something else. I'd say that's good customer service and give them a higher rating, but our waitress just kept disappearing. In fact all of the outside waitress/waiters did.
Everything was pretty good but a little pricey. I'm sure they can easily get away with it though because it's located by all the convention centers, tons of hotels, and it's right next door to a Ruth's Chris. After we got our bill we went to the bar to pay because we hadn't seen the waitress in such a long time and we didn't want to just leave the money outside.
All in all I guess it was ok, but I'd be perfectly fine with not going back.

Nice place for a decent lunch and a sample of six different beers. The beers were pretty good. We just beat the crowd so service wasn't bad althought the waiter did try to joke a bit with a sarcastic tone, he kept checking on us though. But back to the beer. I had the sample flight of the six beers brewed and really enjoyed the Lager, Hefe, and Schwarzbier. My wife who realy doesn't drink beer even like the Schwarzbier. The others (Marzn, Czech, and Seasonal) weren't bad either, but enjoyed the first three mentioned more.
If you want to try several beers and have some pretty good food this particular Gordon Biersch isn't bad.

Gordon Biersch strikes me as a typical above average chain brewery. I went on a Monday night during a work conference. The crowd was sparse but had conventioneers and a couple families who had come over from the casino. I went to the bar and ordered a hefe and a bock. Both were good but not mind boggling brews. At $5.50 they seemed reasonable. The place was open and spacious although we decided to sit on the patio right outside the restaurant. They did set up tvs and fans outside as well, so that was a nice feature. Service was good and beer knowledgeable. There were a good six or seven taps of varying styles. Overall, I would pop here again, but there are better ways to experience New Orleans beer culture. This strikes me as a nice place to grab and after conference day beer.
