    Great to have family and sports. It was my son's birthday and they placed us exactly where I asked. My son was able to watch his psu game. They gave him a special sunday for his birthday. Service was excellent. They gave us time to eat and drink. Not rushed at all even though they were very crowded. I would recommend it to anyone!

    We had a great Anniversary dinner here two weeks ago. I had steak and a crab cake while my wife had the bongo bongo chicken. The steak was terrific and the cake was not your run of mill hard fried cake. It was light and delicious and dressed with a great spicy sauce. My wife loved the chicken. we'll definitely be back.

    We enjoyed our dinner at BJ's. When I went online to make my reservation, I asked for a booth. When I went for dinner they said my reservation did not request a both. I wrote my request in the box provided. However, the waitress was able to get us one of the large booths in the back and that was wonderful- we could talk and it was all very private. Thanks again, BJ's.

We were all pleased with our selections and recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxed dining experience. The prices were very reasonable.

    Every time I am in town on business I make it a point to have at least one meal here. This trip I had two - dinner and lunch. The raw bar offered a nice selection of fresh oysters, clams and other delicious choices. The Chicago Steak is always a top menu selection. For lunch I had a grilled chicken salad, as did four others at our table, and we were all very happy. Service is always great. I'm looking forward to my net trip to town.

    Premiun drink prices, but served a tall glass of ice for seven dollars with 3-4 oz of drink, pointed out to server and he didn't attempt to make it right! Food was forgotten to be served and no concern was displayed, didn't make it right also. In this economy higher end restaurants need to cater to the clients I don't mind paying for a 70 dollar meal but by God it better be perfect or made right. I was soley disappointed with BJ's food was delis but staff left a lot to be desired.

It has a unique atmosphere all it's own. I recommend the BJ's dining experience to everyone!!

    The usual outstanding food and table service. As usual our waitperson Tammy was most helpful and prompt. The only unhappy aspect of the evening was the presence at an adjacent booth of two preschool children who were extremely unhappy about being in the restaurant. Too bad BJ's doesn't have a special section for parents who insist on dragging unwilling nasty tempered kids along to a very nice restaurant where their screaming tantrums can make life miserable for fellow diners.
