This was our second time to visit this brewery/restaurant. The food was marginally good and the service was poor. The first time we had a small group and the service seemed better. I have a hard time recommending this place for anything other than a beer.

This spacious rustic space houses a very fine brewery which serves the standard pub fare such as burgers, fries, salads and soups. My husband enjoyed a holiday ale and a blueberry wheat, notable for is subtlety. They respected that they are brewing beer, not alcoholic kool-aid. The service is friendly and the atmosphere laid back. Prices are in the mid-range... More

My review is mixed. We went to Gilgamesh for our office holiday dinner last night, Salem wasn't the closest place and some of us drove an hour to get there. There were 14 of us. Our waitress was AMAZING and impressed us all. The beverages were all great too. The problem was the food service out of the kitchen. Some... More

I been there 3 times in one week and this place is always buzzing with people. It has a great atmosphere, tables well setup where it's not cramped. The staff is friendly and welcoming. We have noticed that the food tends to take a bit of time to come out at lunchtime and I believe it could be due to... More

The food is good and the beer is great. Cool atmosphere and fun times. If you have never been here before, you have to go. We have had large gatherings such as birthdays for all ages and business functions as well.

It was worth the extra cab fare in dodging construction to get here - service was great, food is great, and their brew line up is always inspired. And the tuna poke never disappoints!

We stopped here for a late lunch on a Monday. It was a bit of a struggle finding because of the road construction at Madrona and 25th. They have some interesting brews. I tried their Mamba ale and was surprised and very pleased with the flavor. We had a couple of appetizers - the Steely Dip was excellent and the... More

Good beers. Staff are attentive and know their brews. Plenty of food. Fish and chips is salmon and tasty. The pulled pork was good. I had the sirloin special but didn't get the mashed potatoes and green beans, just an entire plate of French fries by mistake by the cook.

Another lunch at Gilgamesh and more beers to try. My favorite, their "Terry Porter," was not available so the two others I tried were just fine. The pulled pork on Texas toast was delicious and I could choose soup to accompany it. The waitress was superb and the whole vib very nice.
