April Sims Foodie Diaries: Gordon Biersch Food Review

I went to Gordon Biersch located in Rockville Town Square, after I saw The Avengers … I loved the atmosphere, however the food was mediocre compared to the ambiance that surrounded it.

I ordered the Grilled Chicken with roasted veggies. The chicken and veggies were presented to me hidden under a mound of arugula. I was almost afraid to remove the greens. I took a deep breath and removed them, then rearranged the food on my plate so it would make a decent picture. The chicken had perfect grill marks on it, however it was missing one thing … flavor. It was right in between juicy and dry. If it sat in the passby window for one smidgen longer I would have needed a huge glass of water to wash it down.

My BF ordered the lobster and jumbo lump crab cake sandwich. He said it was pretty good and filling.

We ordered the crab and artichoke dip as an appetizer. I thought it was pretty good. My BF said he liked the dip at Copper Canyon better and there was no comparison. He went on to say the crab dip tasted like something pre-made from a can and heated up with each order.

The Peach Tea was delish. I will warn you that it is unsweetened. Nothing a pack of sugar could not handle. I have southern roots and love sweet tea.

The mini dessert tasters were pretty tasty. We ordered the brownie mousse, strawberry cheesecake and warm apple bread pudding. The bread pudding was warm and delicious. The cheesecake tasted like store bought cheesecake and the mousse was okay.

Overall I give Gordon Biersch 3 out of 5 stars.
