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.

"I and my friends often go there prior to Capitals games, and this was one of those instances. We love the food and the service! I arrived first and awaited their arrival at the table. 15 minutes later, they arrived at the table, but only after having spent ten minutes looking for me. The hosts apparently had lost track of my name and couldn't help them find me at the table. Pretty bad! But we soon got over it and had a delightful meal."

"I and my friends gathered before a Capitals game at Gordon Biersch, as usual, and we all look forward to coming back for the great food, super service, and lively atmosphere. At least if the Caps don't do well in their game, we have had a great time together, starting with GB's."

This grand Victorian saloon is on two levels, with four distinctive bars, including an oyster bar, and six dining rooms. Open for dinner til late in the evening, it is the perfect spot before or after a Verizon Center event, movie or the theatre, and is open for lunch and dinner daily, as well as Saturday and Sunday brunch. Be sure to check out our newest addition, The Alley Bar, on your next visit.

"Gathered there for lunch with some of my former colleagues, and we had a ball! The restaurant was clearly alive, but we were able to carry on a conversation without shouting. The food was excellent, as always, and the service was superb. Highly recommended!"

"Three of us gathered there, arriving separately and at slightly different times. We were seated graciously and tended to comfortably as we arrived the table. The service was wonderful throughout out time there. The food was delicious, as always."

"As a veteran of many Clyde's restaurants, I was surprised how slow the service was -- calling it abysmal is a compliment. We waited at least 45 minutes for our food to show up! It was so slow that the waiter apologized after some 25 minutes had passed. He attributed the slowness to "new staff" in the food preparation area. After the food was finally delivered -- and it tasted as good as ever in Clyde's -- he returned to apologize again and offered to give us credit for our first round of drinks, which we accepted. Soon thereafter, the manager appeared to apologize. So Clyde's was well aware of their problem that night. This was so atypical of Clyde's that I will return for another try, but this experience will long be on my mind."
