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.

It was a little cold on my friends and girlfriend and they forgot to bring menus but other than that it was delicious and the server was very good!

Not a great experience. The bar was terrible, with multiple mixups on beers and cocktails...who confuses a pilsner for a stout, and a dirty vodka martini for a gin martini? This place. The waiter tried, but we never got waters for the table, everything was slow, followed by a canned "sorry for the wait." I doubt we'll be back.

Service was fine until it came time for dessert. It took forever to arrive - something went haywire at that point in the meal.

They were out of the pork chops so I had the Jambalya. Worse dish I've had for a long time. It tasted like the dish was prepared weeks ago sitting in a fridge covered w/saran wrap then nuked to temp.

Yes I love this place, we have celebrated my birthday and my son's birthday and my moms birthday within the last year. The avocado eggrolls I just tried and were AMAZING! Thanks for a great experience again!

Celebrating a birthday at BJ's Brewhouse was a great idea! Six of us enjoyed six different entrees - all were cooked well and enjoyed by each of us. It was a busy Friday night, but our food and our drinks arrived promptly. Looking forward to our next visit!

My husband and I visited our daughter for parents' weekend at UVA. She brought a couple of friends along. Despite the massive crowds throughout the University's area, I was able to book a table several days ahead of time, and we were seated immediately. There was a line of patrons waiting to get in, but we had no problem. After 3 appetizers (all good) 6 entrees and a couple of beers, the total was still under $200. Good food, good service.

20 Minutes for drinks to be served.
35 Minutes before our order was taken.
1 Hour and 20 Minutes from the time we were seated until our food arrived!

Service was a little slow (greeting and getting mixed drinks) but food came oit quick - the use of tablets is definitely a good touch.

Dined there to celebrate son’s college graduation. Some food items had to be sent back because they weren’t properly cooked. Service was good overall with about 3 different staff members coming by our table at various times. It was an average experience for a special occasion. BJs is usually much better (at other locations in VA).

The food was good but it came before our drinks. Our Waitress was definitely not with it! Honestly we think she was on something. Strange experience but very good food!

We had a reservation for 5:45, and it took 20 minutes for them to seat us, and the hostess was a snob. When we were led to our table, the floors were slippery, like greasy, and there was a huge puddle of something under our table, so we asked a passing waiter to please get a mop and that took more than five minutes. Our waitress was new, but super sweet and accommodating. She worked super hard and did a great job. Would I recommend this place? No, because I had a bad experience at the Fredericksburg location as well. Goodbye BJ's!

We arrived on time for a 6:15 reservation on 4/19/18 and the host asked us to wait because or table wasn’t yet ready. After a 15 minute wait, we were finally seated - even though there were many open tables throughout the room. From there we watched as our very flustered waiter raced between tables for another 10 minutes. We he finally got to us, we told him we had plans after and asked about quickest orders. He told us if we were in a hurry we should leave, and shared that tables around us had been waiting up to an hour for food. We left. There’s clearly a management problem when this is the case on a weeknight. I won’t go back!
