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.

Absolutely fantastic food with extensive options! As someone who is gluten free, I had forgotten just how great dining out can be; BJ’s brought back the joy!

Typical fare for the chain. Loud interior, plenty of games on the Tv. Lots fo beers on tap.

Food is average to just above average. More of a gathering place for families and friends with a wide variety of tastes.

The restaurant was extremely crowded but the service/server was very good. Disappointed with quality of food. Queso was runny and the deep dish pizza was soggy-seemed microwaved not oven cooked. Nashville chicken sandwich was on a bun way too big. I have been to other bjs where the food was not disappointing.

Pretty good overall, but for chips and salsa appetizer the salsa had barbecue sauce in it. And there were a few old French fries mixed in the chips. Strange.

We were celebrating a family birthday. Our server was Laura, she was great! She was very helpful and super friendly. She took great care of us even though it was very busy! The manager on duty stopped by our table and chatted with us even though he was also quite busy. The food was excellent and arrived quickly fresh and hot. We all loved our drinks, appetizers, meals & desserts! We will definitely be back!
Great location and easy parking too!

We love going to BJ's Brewhouse and it's the official date night place for my husband and I and we do recommend it highly! With that being said, there have been a few challenges with the quality of food the past 2 times we've gone. The staff and manager always make it right though! We've chalked it up to being super busy, however, we truly hope for the amount we pay for our whole dinner experience, quality in the food preparation does match the value.

Food was good but we wanted to order the beer special for April and they were out; we wanted to order the thin crust pizza and they were out of the crust. We ordered the wings and did not understand the “dry rub” as we thought it was a traditional dry rub so we asked for a dry rub with a side of the BJ peppered BBQ. We got plain cooked wings with a side of the cherry chipotle sauce. It was good, but not what we expected or ordered. Waitress thought we wanted plain wings since we did not order a flavor of the dry rub - complete misunderstanding. Again, food tasted great, but we missed out on the things we originally wanted.

Nice addition to the Harbison lineup. The menu is an insane 24 pages long, with lots of great photos of drinks/dishes along the way. There is truly something for everyone.
Our party of 6 tried several cocktails, flavored teas and sodas, a sampler starter that included boneless wings, artichoke dip, avocado eggrolls, mozzarella sticks, and possibly something else I'm forgetting, and a wide-ranging set of entrees- pasta, pork chops, a soba noodle dish, ahi salad, and pizza.
The beer menu is respectable and very reasonably priced, and I thought the same of the food menu. Our server Elizabeth was lovely, and when one person in our party got the wrong dish, it was rectified quickly and also comped from the bill.
We all had a tough time narrowing down our orders, and are eager to return and try a new batch of dishes! Glad BJs has come to town!!

We had no small dishes, napkins or silverware with our appetizer. Our salads came out first, but we had nothing to eat them with. We waited almost 10 minutes to catch our waitress but to no avail. I stopped another waitress going by and she delivered. Their was not enough salad dressing on the salads, almost dry. Steaks were small along with the portion of mashed potatoes that came with it. Felt the dishes were overpriced. More bang for the buck at Texas Roadhouse. I suggest when the waitress first comes to your table, she has the silverware with her and anything that comes afterwards are able to be consumed.

While the service was great the food was not the best. We have eaten there before and it was amazing so we brought my dad for his birthday and we all were underwhelmed. We came for the prime rib and it was severely overcooked. My husband's ribeye was over cooked. My chicken was nearly burnt. And my son's pizza was rock hard. We didn't send anything back though because we didn't want to wait another 30 mins for food. My husband and I might come back but my father said he won't

Great beer selection, lots of variety for food options. Meals were okay, service was very slow but the manager came by and said our food was on them. So at least they realized the problem and did what they could to make our experience better. We'd go back, definitely for the beer and to try some other food.

Our waiter, Ray, was very nice and funny. He was very knowledgeable and made our dining experience one to remember. The only issue I had was that I made a reservation for 5 at 5pm. When we arrived we still had to wait about 15 minutes although it wasn't very long, I didn't think we should have been waiting considering the reservation was made a week in advance.

We had a 4:45 reservation. When we arrived they had us wait 10-15 minutes for our table. That was the wait anyway so why take reservations. Once we were seated we waited and waited and no server came to our table. So after 15 minutes I went to the hostess and she said someone would be over. A waitress from another section came over and apologized way more than the manager and said she noticed no one had come to our table. The manager came by and half heartedly apologized and said we could have a free appetizer and gave us an excuse that the server was in with the GM. We did not order an appetizer and we never heard from the manager again even though he walked by multiple times. They had a server from another section wait on us and his service was great and he hustled even though his section was on the other side of the restaurant. POOR MANAGER WHO COULD CARE LESS!!! KEEP YOUR FREE APPETIZER AND YOUR MEDIOCRE FOOD!

WAIT STAFF EXCELLENT!

Reservations made online for 4:45pm on 1/19/19. Arrived on-time and seated quickly. Took 10 minutes to be waited on for drinks. Took 10 more minutes to receive drinks. Ordered food, several appetizers not available. Ordered 2nd round of drinks and had to remind waiter of the order. Food arrived, was tasty and reasonable proportions for all parties. Ordered 2 desserts. Check presented so we paid prior to dessert arriving. Asked about dessert and one was delivered. Asked about 2nd dessert and manager came over to tell us it would be 45 minutes to prepare. Unsure how long we would have sat there if we hadn't inquired about our missing dessert. I could not recommend this restaurant to anyone until the service significantly improves. $140 bill for 4 people. We had 4 alcohol drinks plus dinner.

First of all if the restaurant is asking what the occasion is I do expect the restaurant to accommodate for something! Had I known it was a 60 Birthday I would have gone somewhere else... I was very upset with that. Then with making a reservation and waiting an additional 30 Minutes for your table. Not a great way to get started. I will not be back to the restaurant

LOVE LOVE LOVED this restaurant.

Pros:
-Lots of Gluten free options INCLUDING dessert. I got the pizza and it was very good.
-Everything on the menu looked delicious.
-My husband got the BBQ sandwich and it was soooo good.
-Fairly quick time between ordering and getting food. (we had a party of 4)
-Neat looking restaurant, there are windows so its not dark and gloomy.
-Staff is friendly and very patient.

Cons:
-Wait time can be FOREVER, so MAKE SURE YOU CALL AHEAD. The first time we went, they said 2 hour wait time, so obvs we skipped. The second time we called ahead and had to wait 10 minutes.
-There are TVs everywhere. If you are looking for a distraction free date, this is not the place!
-They are PACKED so it can be quite noisy.
-There are only 3 stalls in the women's bathroom so be prepared to wait if you are there during a busy time.

Overall a very pleasant experience and we are already planning on returning next time we are in the area!

It was not the best visit there. The air was either not working or they didn’t turn it down enough and the food was mediocre warm at best. The server was amazing!!
