    I have no money in GCFB but have watched with interest for a year. They may be below a buck but Tues lunch in Omaha was mobbed.

    • I went to the Sunday brunch at the Eagan, MN location for the first time and it was insane. There must have been at least 20 people waiting for a table. They get those big waves of people coming out of church. Let's just hope this company can turn a profit at some point.

    • It's part of their longterm growth stategy - Lose a little bit on each customer and make it all up on volume.

      • Honda, can you clarify that post? If you're losing a little money on each customer, wouldn't you want fewer customers to minimize the overall loss?

        On another note- ate at GC in Omaha Friday night. It's been awhile since I've been there, but wanted to try the Oktoberfest beer. Food was outstanding as usual, had the tenderloin steak salad and a mug club oktoberfest.

        The beer was good enough to convince me to fill the ol' growler up, but I agree w/ some of the other posts- it doesn't seem to have a lot of alcohol content compared to other Oktoberfests. Which is okay because you can drink more without paying the piper.

        Also, the place wasn't busy- near full, but wasn't anybody sitting around and waiting for a table. Don't know if that's a sign of the economic times or just how business has been. I did notice fewer staff standing around than the last time I ate there though- so that could be a good sign of cuts to the overhead costs.

        Overall service was excellent as usual, and the store /front manager was going around to tables asking how everything was.

        Wish the economy would pick up and get people back out- but you know the saying - "
        you can wish in one hand...."
