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.

Understandably, things are stressful during these times. But you would think, at half capacity, the service and food would have been better. Our waitress was sweet, but my drink was forgotten and watered down by the time I received it. The mozzarella sticks were tasty but the large amount of parsley thrown on top was not appealing. The flavor of the salmon was good, even it was a bit dry. But the real issue in my meal was the asparagus. It was limp and way over cooked. I could have eaten several more helpings of the couscous, however. The star of the meal was the Pizookie. We got the Trio (salted caramel, brownie and strawberry shortcake). They were absolutely delicious. If we were to patron Bj's again, it will be a take out order of couscous and Pizookie! But I don't think it is worth the drive or the price tag.

Reservations were great. Service was great. Using cellphone for menu and payment was nice. 3 out of 4 meals were very good.

Server was very busy as well as the restaurant at the time of dinning. She did the best she could to provide average level of service and attention given the amount of tables she was juggling. She was very efficient and wasted no time or trips to the tables. Food was consistent with other locations. Not bad not especially special. Wish I would have tried location during a slower time.

I don't really know how the food or value was because we never got seated. When we arrived, they said they did not have our reservation. I showed the hostess the Open Table confirmation and she offered to put us on the call ahead list for the time of our reservation, but said it would be a 30-40 minute wait. We could not wait that long to be seated as my son had a hockey game and that would be cutting it close. To make matters worse, we then got an email from Open Table saying the restaurant had marked us as a no-show. I responded to that and explained and got an acknowledgement from Open Table. I don't know which party was at fault, but it was not a pleasant experience. We ended up across the street at a pizza place. :(

We booked this New Years Day, it was pleasantly busy. We ordered burgers and salmon. Whoever cooked the salmon, it was perfect! Nice service, our waitress was new, super nice but a little flaky. I think she'll be great with more experience.

Can’t go wrong with BJ’s. We’re lucky to get reservations on a busy weekend and didn’t have to wait long. Service was good as was food. We will return. Location and parking good.

I've been to this restaurant multiple times and had spotty service and spotty food preparation more than once. On this occasion, we waited 15 minutes for the server to come to the table. By that point, I had already asked for the manager. The hamburger I ordered was overcooked again! The food was fair but not worth the money.

This is one fantastic restaurant; we are so happy to have found it through Open Table. The menu is unbelievable - it will take you several minutes just to read through it. Food is great as are the prices. There is no way anybody would be disappointed here!

We had a wonderful experience. Our server was fantastic and friendly. The food was great. It was my parents first time there (they live in Australia) so I'm very grateful that we had such a lovely evening. Highly recommend, hope you get our server!
