Glacier BrewHouse Ratings and Reviews
I have food allergies and made it quite clear when I requested a menu item that if it was going to be difficult to deal with, to just do another option which would have been easier. There were three of us and after 40 minutes, we were told there were issues with the item I ordered and they didn't want to 'cross contaminate' so they were having to do something special for it. It took another 10 minutes before the food arrived and it was not what I wanted it all. I appreciate the effort but it would have been nice to have said, "We can make this for you but it will take a long time." I would have opted for my other choice. Instead, it took an hour for everyone to get the food and we had to inhale it to get back to work. They didn't charge us but it wasn't a good experience. It's a good place to eat but I would think twice about going there with food allergies.
We visited on two successive nights (it was so good the first night, we came a second). The first night was excellent! I'd rate it up there with Ocean Avenue Seafood in Santa Monica and just shy of Splash in Des Moines. The second night was good also, but just a tad off. Perhaps it was because it was Sunday night.
Lovely food, extremely busy. Service took a while to take our drink orders, but they were extremely busy and courteous when they did. Make sure you have time to wait a bit but it's perfect for an evening out with friends and has amazing pizza and desert. Our desert did come a bit too soon but they were very kind and it was just more insentive to finish our plates. Food if worth the money. Get the goat cheese mushroom pizza.
The staff is exceptional! Ask for Mark's section :) he was fantastic and very helpful in answering questions. The food was delish! I had a steak that melted in my mouth! I like that they also have a gluten free menu, which a couple of my friends said was good.
I just ordered the seafood chowder and blue cheese salad. And it doesn't seem like much to get excited about... but it was sooooo good and filling. The waiter was attentive... occasionally we waited for refills on our water. Portion sizes were good and atmosphere was energizing. Smell of the fire stove is always amazing. Overall delicious. We made a reservation with short notice and we didn't have to wait at all when we arrived. Seated immediately.
The menu for Glacier BrewHouse displayed on OpenTable is out of date. The server advised that several items I identified that encouraged this choice of restaurant had been unavailable for an extended period. However, the food that was available was incredible, so I wasn't disappointed for long. They also did not have a problem removing gluten items from dishes to offer most dishes in a gluten friendly form.
It's easy to make reservations online. There's a wide variety of beverages both alcoholic and non. The menu has great options for seafood lovers, salad lovers, steak lovers and anyone in between. All at a fair price. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The dining area is classy with a relaxing atmosphere.
Overall, a good brew pub with a reasonably deep menu. Wait staff was attentive, and the ambiance was better than average for a brew pub. I recommend reservations on the weekend because they can fill up quickly. Vegetarians can usually find something here and if you don't see it on the menu, they can substitute tofu for meat in several of the dishes. Food quality is what you would expect for a higher end brew pub - not fine dining, but well prepared with decent quality ingredients.
Usually I have nothing but good things to say about the GBH, but last week the cooks were off their game. One in our party ordered the double smoked rib eye special med rare. It arrived med well and was sent back. The replacement steak appeared to be in two pieces and looked nothing like the classic rib eye shape. It was full of gristle and tendons, not just the normal fat surrounding and marbling a rib eye. I ordered the flat iron steak med. It came medium but was very, very tough to chew. I knew it wouldn't be as tender as a fillet, but it was like shoe leather and the root beer glaze had a distinct burnt taste. The broccolini was uninspired, at best. Please try harder GBH! It will be a long time before I decide to come back. Thank you.
