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.

Meal was delicious and cooked perfectly. Took quite a while to get a second round. In bartenders defense, she looked like she was left alone once the dinner crowd cleared and still had to worry about our bar high top. We received the wrong beer (nut brown is very different from the double ipa we ordered).
We were also concerned about their precautions. There were no plastic barriers at bar and strangers seemed to be standing /sitting too close together. Also, instead of being sent to their cars to wait for text, there were too many people standing around hostess stand waiting. It just didn't feel like they took precautions seriously. Some restaurants just appear to be much better at it than others...

We were very pleased with our second visit to BJ's. We have been looking for a regular Friday place and I believe we have found it! Expect to see us each week. Our waitress Destiny was particularly good.

The food quality was extremely poor. Several items were clearly microwaved. A pizza is $29 and the overall prices are severely inflated. Will not return.

I felt very safe when we were at our table. Tables were far enough apart and server wore a mask. The ribs were very good and was the special with the pazooki dessert included. I will be back. Server was excellent. Very clean.

Unfortunately a bit off a disappointment tonight. Good took a while. A friend ordered a salad to start and didn't arrive until 5 min before our meal. Both tri-tip and burger were overcooked. Food is over priced

I felt bad for the servers. Not enough help. The food was ok for the price. I really never post a bad review. The restaurant did the best that they could with the circumstances at hand. Always should plan for the worst when it comes to your servers and kitchen help. They were definitely working their butts off and did not seem happy at all.

We initially arrived with a party of 5 at 530 and were told it would be over an hour wait. Since we have small children we decided to book a reservation through Open Table for 7 and come back. We walked around the mall and then returned at 645. We then waited an hour to be seated after several 4-5 party tables were seated. Additionally at one point they called us over to a table and then said - oh sorry this one isn’t yours and we had to go wait again. This experience is incredibly frustrating with 3 children.
Someone (possibly manager) who never told us who she was apologized and said the App wasn’t supposed to take reservations for Saturday night (as if that is my mistake).

Our server was excellent!! The root beer was great. However our food was mediocre and almost inedible (lemon herb chicken with asparagus and zucchini noodles was soupy and had no asparagus). It was overpriced as well. Needless to say, we will not be back. The manager did take off our appetizer from the $60 bill (2 kids meals and 2 entrees). However, we wouldn’t have ordered an appetizer had we been seated at 7 and not starving and desperate at 8 when we got a table.

I was quite pleasantly surprised to be shown to our table at the requested time on what appeared tobe a very busy night! Thank you! Our waitress was great, and efficient. Our group of six placed very diverse orders and I did not hear one negative comment on choices. Thanks for a great experience.

Fabulous staff took great care of us! We were very high maintenance customers adding people to our party last minute, needing a larger table, specific order requests, Sa’ad and his crew accommodated our every wish! Our food was brought to us piping hot by multiple servers jumping in to help out. Our drinks were never empty. Everything was delicious even the gluten free pazookie! Love this restaurant!!

It was my birthday...and my brother and his fiancé were joining us for dinner for the first time there. As they had never been there, but we had, I told them how fabulous it was. With our reservations we were quickly seated. It our server a long time to get to us. I told my brother the prime rib was excellent, so he ordered it. My brother and his fiancé had salads and my husband had chili and I had the clam chowder. It took over 30 minutes to even get those and my clam chowder was ice cold. The server apologized and I told her she could just heat it up, but she said she had them get me a new one. However, when the bowl came out I could tell it had been microwaved and was my same soup, which I don't mind, but don't tell me I was getting a new one if that wasn't the case. Needless to say, the bowl and plate were hotter than the soup. While I was waiting for my soup to be returned to me, our dinners came. My prime was okay, but that too was very cold and not even warm. I thought, 'Well, at least I can put some hot aujuis on it". Wrong. The aujuis they gave us was more like water, and the ramekin was only about 1/3 full. Plus...you guessed it...it was ice cold. The fat from the broth was laying on top.

I am not sure why you even offer vegetables with the dinners because they do not know how to cook them. My asparagus was burnt and my brothers was raw...and my husband got broccoli...except it too was raw. I mean, it hadn't even been cooked/steamed at all. It was totally raw broccoli!

Did I mention my husband and I were both chefs?

The highlight of the night was the pizookies we had.

I normally do not complain, but this was the worse meal we have ever had there. We were extremely disappointed.

They did not honor the Open Table reservation. We waited quite awhile and only got a table because I hounded them a bit. The food was not good. Turkey Club was awful. The pork chop and the steak were super dry. Would never go again.

I was reluctant to go to BJ's. My husband and I were not that impressed the last time we went. This time was with friends from work. Not easy to make a choice that would make everyone happy! BJ's looked like it had enough choices. Turns out it was really quite good. Everyone could find something to make them happy and were happy with the food, service, etc.
