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.

    The service was slow. The rib eye steak was full of gristle, fatty, and tasteless. The asparagus were too small and tasteless. The only thing good was the baked potato. The strawberry dakairi was flat out tasteless and watered down. We weren't offered bread or rolls nor a complimentary side salad. Overall my tab was overpriced, although the server was gracious and overworked. He deserved the tip I left.

    The restaurant could not find our reservation even though it could seen on my phone. The lady at the front was rude and wanted to dismiss the reservation all together. She finally had One of the managers Brandon come out to speak with me. The experience of speaking to both of them was a waste of time and it doesn’t seem that the two of them understood the concept of customer service. The overall wait was a huge inconvenience. The server and two of the young ladies working the hostess station were polite, professional and trying to assist as much as they could. After being seated the server was nice and helpful and the food was fine. It took all my

    Love the varieties of food and beers. Very comfortable and friendly casual environment. They have some healthier options as well as burgers. The avocado egg roll appetizer is yummy! This is one of our regular places and we like it a lot. Also, they’ve been able to accommodate our extended family with a large party.

    Had a reservation but walked in and were sat immediately. Host never said a word other than "follow me". I tried to tell him i had a reservation so got a 'no show' email from open table. Took 10 minutes before the waitress even came to the table. Food was average. Burger and fried chicken sandwich. Waitress only stopped at the table 1x after our food was delivered and took 5 minutes to bring another drink.

    Had reservations for 6pm. Were seated immediately. There was a little bit of a wait as our server probably had too many tables because of staffing shortages. Our server Tyrek was a joy and did his best to accommodate us. Food was well prepared and delicious. Overall, considering the challenges faced by restaurants, we had an enjoyable meal.

    I made reservations thru open table for November 20. I arrived and was seated. While I waited for my friend to arrive, I checked my email and saw the email from open table that the restaurant had canceled my reservation. I immediately questioned this since I was presently there. To make a long story short, the manager offered me a $20 gift card for the trouble. Again, I made reservations for December 9th and the exact same thing happened. The same manager was on duty and finally got things squared away but obviously they need to be trained in this area. Nonetheless my daughter and I enjoyed our time there. I ordered the seared ahi salad and she had the shrimp scampi. Both were quite tasty and our waitress was also good

    I have never witnessed service so SLOW. Happy Hour is from 3 to 7pm and we got there at 4:15pm but there were no happy hour menus. The staff wasn’t sure what was on the menu. We waited 30 minutes before I could find someone to come talk to us and bring us dinner menus and water. There was one bartender working and it took another 30 minutes to get drinks- still no food because they still hadn’t taken our order. If it wasn’t a monsoon outside, we would have left. On the bright side, the staff was friendly when you could catch them, the drinks were good and so was the food. However, the food did not make up for the EXTREMELY SLOW service and time I lost on my birthday- which was noted in my reservation.

    We made a reservation online and showed up at our reservation time only to find out they aren’t open for indoor dining. When I asked the manager at the front why we were able to make a reservation if they aren’t open for indoor dining I was told they are aware of the issue and have talked with HR many times to get it fixed but it isn’t a priority. Nothing on the Bowie page states they were closed to indoor dining. This location is apparently awful. Go to the one in Columbia, MD instead.

    This was our first visit to the BJ's in Bowie. We first found BJS in Las Vegas. The food there was excellent and restaurant was in my opinion upscale in nature. I was so disappointed in the Bowie location. The food was disgusting and the portions of certain meals were very small. The food was also on the cold-warm side. The interior was also substantially smaller than the location in Las Vegas and looked a little run down for a restaurant that is not that old. I would not recommend this location.

    The food and service were good. However, we had a reservation at 6:00 and were not seated until 6:45. We checked in at 5:50, but we were waiting for some of our party. At 6:05, all of our party arrived, we informed the host, but we were not sat for another 40 minutes. There were multiple open seats and still we waited. I am very disappointed by this service and I do not understand the purpose of a reservation that is in no way honored.

    My first time at this establishment was beyond disappointing and upsetting. I chose this restaurant because the one in Orlando, Florida beats expectations. We ordered drinks and waited over 1.5 hours and never received them. The bartender working the service bar was backed up for over an hour. How is that possible? We attempted to express our disappointment to the on duty manager, Darryl Harrod, and he refused to come to our table. Absolutely awful leadership! We watched our attentive waitress, Asia, requesting Mr. Harrod to conduct a table visit and he was belligerent and dismissive to her. Totally unacceptable!

    Took us over 20 minutes to be seated at our reservation time. Once seated, service was slow. Took quite a while to get a beer from the bar. Staff said it was only one bartender that evening, but I have been here once before with a similar scenario. Last time I will head to this location.
