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 two young ladies we encountered upon arrival were what my wife considered “rude”. Bad start.
Our server was polite but overworked.
A potion of my food was cold (fries) so I asked for them to be replaced. What they brought me to replace them were hard, overcooked fries. But at least they were hot.
I know everyone is trying to get back in sync but this was a less than stellar visit. I see no reason to return.

The hostess told me to wait outside in the heat. It was 95 outside. Not cool. When I was directed to my table the other hostesses were gossiping about the customers. Do not recommend this place. Terrible waiter Matthew. No sense of humor.

The customer service was terrible. I had to get up twice to request for refills and cheese for the pizza. The server only brought us 4 packets for 3 people.

I hadn’t been in a while because prices are getting high to afford going there.

I was very pleased that BJ's sponsored free meals for active duty personnel and veterans, again this year. My waiter. Donald, was very courteous , efficient and helpful. And clam chowder and the tri-tip were both well prepared and quality.

We wanted to sit outside in the patio area. I think it would be wise to open the patio area earlier. 5:30 is just too late . It does not give us an option. I had one person in my party that was really uncomfortable due to Covid and this is why we selected your place to sit outside but was forced to dine in doors

With Covid seating was ok until I looked to my right and someone was seated at a table right next to me on the next level up so they were breathing down on our table

Great food and service. Ask for Saleh or Gabriel. They are great with kids and young adults who have disabilities.
Every Thursday they have a good deal on Spareribs with two sides and a free pizooki dessert.

Refills for coffee or drinks should have a second cup brought out rather than taking an old cup to be refilled. This allows least amount of retouching from the table to the drink machine back to the table.

I love the beef dip at BJ’s, and unfortunately they discontinued it. So sorry to hear. I had a trip tip bar b que sliders. It was ok. Meat was very tough. I don’t think we’ll be going back.

Waited long in between the change in shift servers. Never got the dessert for my sons birthday and I had requested for a surprise singing and never received that. We left very unhappy.

It was nice to get out and go eat at a restaurant. Everything was just a little so soo. It was my husband's birthday and he ordered a steak and 1/4 of it was all fat. He isn't one to complain but is was disappointing. My wine glass was all sticky and the menus were paper but had been cut all crooked and looked really cheap. The waiter was kind and nice and the rest of us enjoyed the dinner.

Social distancing is more than 6 ft from table to table, all staff wore masks, waiting area marked off for social distancing as well. Service and food was the usual great quality. We received a large pizza with 50% discount (same price as the mini), not sure how long this will be offered. Highly recommend Brea BJ's Pizza for safe dine in experience.

This was the 1st the dining out since quarantine happened. We made reservations and waited less than 5 mins to be seated which was great. Service was good and I loved how they were accommodating to social distancing tables because sometimes restaurants tend to get busy hence nosy so it was nice have a quiet ambience where I can have a conversation without having to raise my voice. Good food and good service overall!
