At Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant, our passion is to produce and deliver to our guests the highest quality and freshest products. Our tradition of on-site brewing and food made fresh, from scratch, are the most evident examples of this passion. Our restaurant and people offer a relaxed and inviting atmosphere, attentive and friendly service, fresh food carefully and creatively prepared, specially brewed beers and other fine beverages. We feel it is this combination of elements that make a great dining experience possible. The Gordon Biersch heritage of superior beer, great food and good times are now served up fresh daily in locations stretching coast to coast. Committed to using only the freshest and finest ingredients, our restaurant showcases a passion for food with seasonal menus, daily specials and frequent changes to the regular menu. Our restaurant, located in the original Riggs Bank Building, features a unique and classic décor and an inviting atmosphere.

"Won't be pre-gaming here any more -- the service was again slow, inattentive, and inaccurate. Soup wasn't delivered before the main course. We asked - twice - and it still never came. Had to ask twice for ketchup as well, but at least got that! Took a long time to even get a beer ordered on arrival, and then a long time for it to arrive. Game days are busy - but they're also scheduled way in advance, and GB has been catering to the Caps fan base for years. But the last two visits have been marred - badly - by exceptionally poor service. Add in that the prices went up with the new menu, and I'm off to someplace else for my next pre-game.
If you're not in a hurry, or on a timeline, the food remains excellent and the in-house beers are superb. But they need to fix the service.

"New menu... not sure it's an improvement. The food's still good (although it seems some items are getting quite pricey, like the steaks) and the service didn't seem to be quite what I've become accustomed to over the years of coming here. Still, reliable and tasty!! I'll be back!"

"This has been my favorite place in Penn Quarter for years. The food is still super, but the service slipped - badly - this visit. Slow, inattentive, and inaccurate."

"Great spot!! I guess the pricing scared me away in the past, but it wasn't as steep as I'd expected. Food, bar, ambiance, service... all absolutely first rate! Great spot before a Caps game, or any time! I'll be back, you can bet on that!!"

Carmine’s is a family style, value-driven restaurant concept with locations in NYC, NJ, Nassau Bahamas, and Washington DC. Restaurateur Artie Cutler created Carmine’s with one goal in mind: to open a restaurant that would serve every meal in the style of an Italian American wedding feast, featuring extra large portions of home-style antipasto, pastas, seafood and meat entrees served on extra large platters designed for sharing. Carmine’s is the perfect place to casually enjoy friends and family over great food and wine, with excellent service, the way it used to be at grandma’s house.

"Loved the family-style dinner, and for the first time anywhere, the offer to refrigerate leftovers while I attended a show at the Verizon Center. Come back after the show, pick up the leftovers - what a thoughtful service to offer! Great food, super wine list. I enjoyed it!!"

The Walrus Oyster & Ale House is now open at National Harbor, MD. Officially named The Walrus Oyster & Ale House inspired by the Lewis Carroll poem The Walrus and The Carpenter, the restaurant offers local, moderately priced, eastern shore style seafood and a vibrant Shucking Bar. Count on The Walrus “fun” factor to complement the food with an over-sized, industrial strength bar featuring cocktails designed by Kris Carr, 14 tap beers, tap wines and colorful, massive frozen drinks for those warm, sunny days. The restaurant boasts a 50-seat deck with beautiful water views of the Potomac and nearby Old Town Alexandria. The restaurant is now open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. Brunch served Saturday & Sunday. Happy Hour offered Monday through Friday from 3:00pm - 6:00pm.
