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.

1 party ordered prime rib and it was dry and overcooked. Obviously had been sitting out and cooked for some time. Ordered a mixed drink...first one was great, second one terrible. Bartender said she couldn't make it same way as the first. Little confused by that. One of the buns on sliders had mold on it. Server was great as none of this was her fault. Manager comped prime rib and replaced with sliders, but wrong sliders were brought out. Burgers instead of the bbq tips. For quality of some of the food...way over priced. If you don't want a $100 bill..drink water.

All was good EXCEPT the temperature was about 5 degrees too cold.
Several people commented. We ask as Nd the server told the manager and we did feel a difference. Bug too little too late. I won’t go back and damn that’s a shame. I like the place.

Not to sound like a Karen but Probably the worst dine in experience I’ve ever had. I wanted to get the Mac n cheese as a side & the waiter even told me that would be a bad choice because it was disgusting. Then when I got my side salad the croutons were stale that should’ve been my first impression to just get up and go. My bf and I waited over an hour for our food & there weren’t that many people in the restaurant dining so not sure why it took so long but I ordered the steak n ribs combo. 🤢🤢 waiter recommended medium so I went with it and my steak came out completely done and chewy as all hell. The ribs were dry with not a single drop of sauce on top the meat wasn’t tender at all. My bf got the shrimp scampi and in the middle of our meal a fly was discovered in his food. When we were finally leaving the waiter looked at us and ready I bet you’re ready to get out of here and he couldn’t have been more right. Worst $70 spent and will definitely never be back😂

We enjoyed a small salad, guacamole egg roles and baked ziti - and grabbed a couple of dishes to take home to the kids as wells. Wonderful food and our server was fantastic. We’ll be back and will recommend as well.

Overall very good. There seemed to be some drama between a couple of the employees (not our waiter), but it did not affect us. Just not very comforting when trying to eat.

My husband and I have been to BJ's 3 times now. Until last time, we really enjoyed our food. However, last time we went I got the grilled mahi and blackened shrimp tacos. The fish was WAY overcooked and there was only 2 tiny pieces in it. My shrimp taco was equally dissatisfying. There was 4 tiny shrimp in it and they were overcooked as well. Our waiter was awesome tho! He was very helpful in describing our drink options and stayed right with us making sure we had a good experience despite the food being just ok. We will return but I won't have the mahi tacos again.

A call in reservation was not allowed, and the reservation application would not allow me to book my entire party. After 3 phone calls trying to get tables booked, we show up 10 minutes prior to reservation time, then wait 30 past reservation time to be seated as we were told the occupants were getting ready to leave ( they were served their main course 20 minutes after we seated in another location). We waited 30 minutes to receive drinks, and it took an hour and fifteen minutes to get our food. The waiter, when asked, replied with a snarky response that all the food is made fresh. 10 other meals were served to tables that showed up 40 minutes after we ordered. When the food finally arrived, all the burgers were cold, the shrimp broiled shrimp was still chilled like cocktail shrimp, the other dishes were extremely lackluster to be as positive as possible. The waiter acted like he really didn't care, so the manager was called to the table (which I have never done before in my 18 years of adulthood). The manager was spoken to work great respect, with no scene made of the terrible experience, to which he was dismissive and interrupting. As he walked away, we saw him gesture and roll his eyes to another table of guests of the same ethnic background. We were there for 2 hours and 45 minutes to get lunch. This was at the Evansville Indiana location. Thoroughly disappointed in the behavior and BJ's staff and food. This was the WORST restaurant experience I have ever had. I will never go back, nor will I recommend this restaurant to anyone. Diner beware. .

Well, I realize that things aren’t quite back to normal, however the restaurant was only half capacity and it took an hour before our order was taken. Service very slow, and server didn’t bring part of the order. Nachos and steak were way over cooked. Before the pandemic food and service was much better. We will give them time to adjust and try again!

Our food was excellent as usual. The service was lacking, it took sometime to get our drinks and to get refills. One order was incorrect we asked for buffalo wings and they brought bbq wings. With social distancing, the service should have been quicker. There were not a lot of people in there dining.

We had reservations for 6pm. We arrived at 5:55 and were seated immediately. We ordered within 5 minutes because we knew what we wanted. We did not receive our food until 6:55. That's a 55 minute wait for our food. Absolutely not ok, especially given the fact that they weren't too busy. The other main issue was when we received our food, it was clear that the chicken Alfredo had gotten done quite a while before the jalapeño burger we ordered. The sauce was almost nonexistent, the noodles were very dry. We had to ask for more sauce for it to be edible. Overall, we were there far too long (until 7:30) and not pleased with our experience.

Reagan was a very attentive waitress. She went above and beyond that night. She suggested great meals, helped choose a good cider.
We will definitely come back to see her!

The service was not very good. The restaurant was not that busy and it took a long time to get our drinks. When the food came it was cold. My husband and I ordered a pizza. The flavor was good but it was cold. Our son ordered a hamburger and fries and his fries were cold. It is a nice restaurant, I hope they can improve on the service. For the money we spent, we did not receive very good service.

Food was very bland, simple bun, was not very well prepared, other dish looked like it came out of a bag and microwaved and put on the plate, Not something I would recommend!

The food was great. The service was awesome. They weren’t very busy but still enough people to feel a bit of normalcy. Only thing I didn’t like was the air was on so I was freezing.
