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.

    We go for the salad bar and it was fresh and with lots of options, as always. I had the halibut - I appreciate that they offer different ways of cooking/preparation and they honored the requests we had. My husband also had fish (macadamia nut crusted ahi) and both of our meals were very good. We had a nice window seat and were able to watch the otters as well as see the moonrise. The restaurant was a bit busy (Sunday night), but our server was still available when we needed him. Chart House remains a reliable choice.

    It's always a good experience when we choose to eat at the BJ's in Salinas. The atmosphere is calm and relaxing, the staff is always polite and attentive, and the food is always delicious. Our server last night, Riley, was especially attentive and came to check on us at all the right times. The pizookie deal they had last night was great and the taste was equally as great. Thank you BJ's staff for yet again another great night out.
