The food, service, & the ambience was great. Just found the booths very uncomfortable to sit in for a couple hours.

We made a reservation for 7 but were ready much earlier. We called and they were happy to accommodate us at an earlier time. The staff was very friendly and the food was good.

Casual dining with well-worn tables, booths and smaller rooms away from bar area. Service was good, lighting a bit too bright for evening. Special of the day was gone by 6, settled for something on the regular menu. Good choice - steak was delicious and crab cakes were the best we've had in a long time. Will stop in again next time we are in the area. Good value, pleasant overall dining experience.

We were in town for my fiance's 5 year college reunion. This was one of his favorite places to eat while at school and whenever we go back, we have to visit. This was my first time eating the Bongo Bongo dip and I can't stop thinking about how delicious it was! I'm already excited for my next visit!

As always the food and service were excellent. My girlfriends and I love the outdoor dining. My only complaint was sitting downwind of a smoker. We did not realize smoking was still permitted in such an environment. None of smoke or enjoy it on any level and one of us is pregnant so that was annoying. But we love BJ's!

joyed BJ. The only problem is my son loved the BJ in Danville and it was handicapped accessible to bad the BJ in Selingrove does not. I really can't imagine how your restaurant is getting away with this. I will certainly check into this with the BB. Thank yo

Don't need to go back anytime soon.

Food was overcooked and dry. Medium burger came out well, and so did the medium steak.

Messed up our salad dressings (3 of 3).

Waitress had to be asked to refill our drinks.

While in town to visit the local college with our son we were referred here. We loved the little downtown area and the restaurant was very quaint. The food selection was great and the chef was able to accommodate my wife who has a severe gluten allergy. Our service was very slow for a place that had three servers and from what we could tell only about 10 tables full. Forgot to bring drink refills and condiments twice.

We were disappointed with our special outing to BJ's. Having been there many other times, we were anxious to revisit to celebrate a birthday. Upon arrival, the restaurant was empty but we were seated at the table that was the farthermost away. Our server seemed to be "up" on things and was doing a good job until he had to come out and tell us that the kitchen had run out salmon. At this point, he seemed worked up and things went downhill from there.
He forgot to bring wine that had been ordered and he forgot to bring the coleslaw that had also been ordered.
As far as the quality of food...the lobster tails were extremely small and very rubbery. The steaks were overcooked and my salad had one, yes one, "homemade" crouton on it (it looked like the croutons that are bought at the grocery store.
The check was very pricey for the quality that was received during our visit.
It just seemed like the kitchen staff and the wait staff didn't have their act together.
A large price for a lot of disappointment. Really don't know if we will be going back.

We'd acquired two gift certificates as part of an auction package. Our food was outstanding -- the 12-oz. steak was about as good as any I have ever had and my wife's crab cakes were top notch.
It did seem to take an unusual amount of time between courses, but the taste of the food proved worth it.
No room for desert. Maybe next time.

Our booth was located directly over an A.C. vent which made one of the areas of the booth cold and drafty. The booth was also located just outside the men's room door. A bit too close for comfort in my estimation.

This was only our second time dining at BJ's & once again the service was great. As a newbie to oysters on the halfshell, the server answered my questions & asked the oyster bar staff anything she was unsure about. The food, once again was outstanding. Great place to go if you like fresh seafood, steaks, and/or barbeque. We never mind paying a little more if we're paying for quality. We can't wait to go back again with friends & family.

I have been coming to BJ's since it was down close to the Susquehanna Valley Mall. We have visited the downtown Selinsgrove location many times and the Danville even more then that ( we live in Watsontown so Danville was closer) We have never been disappointed with our food or our service at any of the locations. I know the ribs changed from the original baby backs that I used to get in the early 80's, (I truly loved those) but I am sure others will say the new ones are the best. That is why BJ's has stayed in business all these years. The corn bread is like none other I have ever tasted - it is sweet and moist and like a really yummy cake. Its amazing . Their seafood and steaks are fantastic and oh my the Appetizers are a wonderful variety of goodness. Also you have never had a salad until you have have their smokehouse salad - it is amazing and to top it off it is served in a ice cold bowl and ice cold fork. The staff is top notch and the management and owner is also. We are hoping a Danville BJ's is in the cards , we miss hoping on 80 mid week . We will be heading back down to the Selinsgrove location sometime this week again. I know we will be greeted with smiles as always.

Recommended by a friend who went to school here. Atmosphere is welcoming and food was excellent. Its a lot bigger than the outside appearance but they take reservations. Went on a Friday night with a reservation and we were seated right away. Plenty of different dining options and drink menu was extensive. We will definitely return
