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.

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.

Cold food. Two slabs ribs not the same. Meaning two different days cooked or just prepared differently not sure.

Service was friendly and attentive. Food was very good and plentiful. Refills come before you ask. Not so loud that you couldn't hear each other. Good place to go.

Extensive menu that satisfies everyone (even my picky daughter and health conscious wife)! Outdoor dining on a beautiful night was extra nice. Be sure to save room for dessert - the pizookies are delicious!

Management or hostesses we’re beyond rude and most unhelpful. Hint. Send them packing, no one needs staff like them

My Barbacoa chicken was excellent. Our server was attentive and friendly without being overbearing. And, we were very impressed with their precautions as far as spreading tables out, etc. was concerned. We felt safe there and will be back.

I went there with my boyfriend to celebrate my birthday. The drinks were good, the food was fantastic, and our waiter was wonderful and honest. I liked that I could make an online reservation as well.

Great ribeye steak. Open for dine in. Tables are separated for safety.
Very nice to be able to get a reservation on a busy weekend.

BJ's is always a family favorite. During this time of uncertainty BJ's shows their commitment to the health and safety of their customers. I appreciate the ease of online reservations and the set up for social distancing.

The broccoli was completely dried out and not edible and the Parmesan Chicken was way overcooked and too thin. The rest of the food was good but not hot or fresh. It was just ok. Liked having the ability to pay from my phone and liked the tables being uncluttered. Made a reservation which made it great to go straight to a table. It was simple and easy.

Very slow in getting us our food. Sat at table 30 min. before drinks and another 30 to get appetizer. Lunch was served 90 min. after arriving! I think the problem was in the kitchen. Serve pleasant. I normally don't want a compensation, but I think the bill should have been adjusted. Food was good, though, but it was minimized by the delay in getting our food.

Honestly, other than the lack of a waitress, the experience was fantastic. We love BJ’s Brewhouse. We have eaten there several times. Their food and beer selection is very good.

After taking our order it became extremely difficult to find our waitress. We never got the ketchup my son had asked for when he ordered his burger, and even after asking again when we received his burger. We waited until his fries were all gone -ten minutes- before just grabbing a ketchup from a newly vacated table).

I was looking for a second beer, but by the time she did stop by, maybe 15 minutes later, I’d decided to cut the evening short.

I’m guessing that she must have had too many tables?

They don’t accept open table even though they participate and allow for reservations through the app. We arrived at 6:20 for a 6:30 open table reservation and they sat us at 7:00. It was extremely crowded. Service was slow. One meal came after the rest of us were nearly done. They did comp that meal which was nice.

Got seated within a few minutes, which was very nice. Sandwich was good and fries were seasoned and crispy to perfection. Steak was decent. Dessert was delicious. Overall happy with our experience.

The experience was subpar for BJs, which is normally a reliable destination for a meal. This time we waited at least 10 minutes before our waitress came by. Our flatbread pizza, which is normally delicious, had under done crust which was mushy instead of crispy . The kids’ Mac and cheese was obviously a box of Kraft macaroni and cheese.

This was a business lunch that took 1 hour to even place our order. When the food finally came the soup was luke-warm at best and one of the meals came very late - after everyone else was finished. Another meal (salad) was requested without cheese/dairy due to allergies. By the time our employee was half way through his meal he found cheese in the bottom. The employee when home ill that afternoon. I am a rewards member and they were unable to find my account. $159 lunch with no points. Doubtful we will use BJs for business lunches again.

I used open table and in directions asked for a table if 7 not 2.
I even called the restaurant a day before to make sure they got my Correct Number on open table


When we arrived they only had reservations for 2

So it did no good reserving on open table or even calling directly. We had a 45 minute wait !!!!

I was upset when I booked a reservation and they didn’t want to honor the reservation for another 45 minutes. We had 2 small children and that was not acceptable. I asked to speak to the manager and he scrambled to help. Clearly the front desk needed more training. The server was excellent though and she did her best to make the evening go smoothly. All in all we had to wait 25 minutes longer than our reservation called for.

Food was reasonable. Wine was excellent.

Everything but food was fine. My steak had no flavor nor did my wife’s. Some broccoli at the table had to be sent back as it came out cold. Food was not as good as I have had there.

The start of the meal was completely underwhelming. We had a reservation for 7pm. We walked into the restaurant before our reservation time and were told our table was getting ready and to take a seat. Over the course of the next 10 minutes We then watched at least 3-5 other parties who didn’t have a reservation get seated. Wait.....what? Why would parties of the same size without reservations get seated before parties with reservations. We still don’t know. I finally asked the hostess how long is it going to be until we are seated. She said what’s your name again? This was truly shocking because we literally never left her eyesight. It was as if she forgot about us completely. She said oh your table is ready now. From where we sat while we were waiting we had a pretty good view of the restaurant and the table we sat at wasn’t recently cleared. So it remains a mystery why we weren’t immediately seated. The situation didn’t improve much once we were seated. We watched for an additional 7 minutes as busy servers buzzed around our table. I was preparing to get up and leave as our waitress finally asked for our drinks order. But I gave the meal 3 stars and the above is not a 3 star rating. The food was average. The service after the two hiccups was responsive. The ambiance of the restaurant was nice and the beer was really good.

Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch Weds. Hostess & server very accommodating for our party of 5 . Food was delicious. The college kids w/ us had the Weds burger special which they devoured! Server Allison was very helpful & patient! Austin Landing was a good meeting place for Me (from Cincinnati) & Family (from Vandalia).
