I've heard Ellis Island has some decent deals on cheap food, cheap big breakfasts, etc.

I've been to both (in other locations). In fact, there's a Yardhouse close enough to my home in Denver that we go a few times a year. IMO, the food at Yardhouse is much better than GB.
As for the beer, I have to agree that GB beer just isn't as good as lots of other brewpub chains (I'm comparing to Rock Bottom, Breckenridge Brewery, ant the like), and just can't at all compete with the really great brewpubs (Wynkoop in Denver, Widmer in Portland, Pike Brewing).
Given the choice, I'd go to Yardhouse over Gordon Biersch any day of the week.
