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.

    Celebrated my son’s 13th birthday. He is gluten intolerant and BJ’s is his favorite restaurant because of their gluten-free pazooki. All the food was great - service was fantastic and we felt very safe while dining.

    B.J.'s is consistently good. Our server, Alicia, was fantastic! She was very well informed on the entire menu, offered great suggestions, and was attentive without being obtrusive. Of course, with COVID, it is quieter, but I have never found B.J.'s to be overly loud and where it then becomes difficult to have a conversation. Overall, a very pleasant experience.

    Waiter needs to find another profession. Everything was somebody else’s fault. Food other than calamari was horrible. Will not go again. Restaurant used to be good. Really went down hill!

    The food was good no issues there however I ordered a Pina Colada and it tasted like pineapple water. There was zero flavor and zero rum. When I told our server he told me there was rum in there and I said no there isn’t. He continues to argue with me and said he knew for a fact it had rum. Umm how exactly do you know? He didn’t make it and in fact I know he didn’t watch it being made because I had to wait forever for it because he was serving other table. I could see the bar and him. I thought it was rude for him to argue with me. I know what rum tastes like and there was no rum in my drink. The description of the drink also mentions that rum would be on top and that was not there either. I told him it was just pineapple water and I didn’t want it. The server should not argue with the customer. This was our first and last time at this place.

    I always have a good meal at Bj's they have so many items to choose from. Love the vegan bean soup and the salads. My hubby loves the beer choices and the ribs. My kids love the cookie desserts. Will come again.

    We were disappointed with our experience. They’re house made soda machine wasn’t working, and all my boyfriend wanted was the orange cream soda. It was busy even though they stuck with “social distancing”. Our waitress hardly came by and we didn’t have our drinks refilled. The food was fine, but not worth the cost. Definitely would not recommend this location.

    Historically, a big fan of the restaurant that we frequent often. The service and food was quite good during this visit. I would say, though, that the level of social distancing was concerning to I and family. There were 5 tables all connected by 4 to 6 feet with (estimate) 25 people all within approx 20 feet from each other. Large parties with not enough space. We could not enjoy experience with the noise and lack of space.

    We had Bistro burger, root beer, and a pizza for lunch. First time eating here. The burger was good not great. Root beer was really good. The tavern-style pizza was good but small; forgot which pizza we got but it was a thin-crust.
