East County's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
The service and food was great, although I ordered Justin Cabernet and was served a lower grade of red wine, but still charged for Justin. I simply did not want to ruin the evening by making a seen, as my wife and I seldom go out because of our young son. I work in the wine industry and know my wines. It's unfortunate and might have been an honest mistake, but when I think about, when's the last time you ordered the house wine and were given one of their fine wines by mistake?

Time counts at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse. Since our humble beginnings back in 1978, we've continued to refine our brewhouse experience to make BJ's a place where you can make the most of any meal. We want BJ's to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail. Our guests come here for our award-winning handcrafted beer. They come here for the Southern California twist we've put on the Chicago-style deep dish pizza. And they come here for our Pizookies®, our world-renowned dessert. But above all we know people come here to make their good times better. So in many ways we haven't just crafted a brand, but a mindset. And our guests are the reason for this. And it's because of them we're continually striving to make sure every moment they choose to spend with us counts. Welcome to BJ's, a restaurant with a Brewhouse soul.More
