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.

We got to sit on the patio, a group of 7 at about 5 and weather was great. We thought they made a safe and enjoyable dining experience. Our party ordered: Burgers, Pizza, and Wings and we're happy.

Please come support BJ's now that they have reopened. The food, and beer, are just as great as before the quarantine.

I had the worst birthday dinner at the Bj’s in La Jolla, first off I got there at 6:35 pm after one of my guest so they had already been seated at 6:30pm. So when I got to the front I asked the hostess where my table was and she told me I could look around. Then the waiter we had decide to throw the coasters on the table like she was in a track and field meet for discus. Then we ordered our food which took extremely long ... we received our appetizers and food at the same time. My guest also didn’t receive the drinks they initially asked for so we had to ask several times to which we were told just give me a minute I have to do “_”. We watched as other tables were served in a timely manner all around us. We all ordered deserts but I was give a birthday pizookie which was room temperature at best as were my guest desserts. When we were ready for our ticket the waiter told us she would get it 15 minutes pass then 30 minutes and still no check. We had to ask several different waiters if they could just take our checks because at this point it was 9:15 pm! I had other events I wanted to go to on my birthday but could not because I was waiting on my water for unprecedented amounts of time at a restaurant. Our drinks weren’t refilled unless we stopped another waiter to tell our waiter. Overall worse experience of my life at an establishment. I would hate to think that this was because of my guest and I’s race but I had been to this location before with a less ethnic group and did not experience any of this before. I am a student at UCSD and it troubles me that I can no longer attend a delicious restaurant within proximity to my residence. I have asked other minorities about their experiences and sadly they have shared similar instances. I hope the company does not make a habit of making minorities feel uncomfortable in their establishments. My friends and I will take our business else where from here on out.

Excellent service as usual. Samatha our waitress this time was attentive, courteous and professional. Alex, who has waited on us several times, stopped by to say hello! The menu has a diverse variety of food to meet different preferences. We like eating at the restaurant on a regular basis.

The Food was fabulous! I had the Parmesan crusted chicken and my daughter had the Jambalaya. I felt my drink was not very strong, however it was really good and refreshing! I had the watermelon mojito. Our waiter was really great - he had a table of 20 outside that was giving him some issues and that took some time away from us, that's the only reason i didn't give it a 5-star. I highly recommend this place!

I am a BJ's fan and I'd love their food, beer and service. I went there on Friday dinner, there are many people waiting in the line, but I made a reservation before. Table was ready when I arrived, but waiting the dishes to come was really long, probably due to the Friday. Food is always good, my favorite one is their pizza, but this time, I felt it was different (I ordered the BBQ chicken), I cannot tell what was different in detail, but the tasting was not the same as before.
Overall, it is a fine place.

One of my favorite restaurants. Huge menu. This time we went to the La Jolla restaurant. It might sound crazy, but I think the food is best at this location.

Very nice place in La Jolla for a quick bite or proper meal. Dessert menu is amazing and worth trying. Lost of variety on the menu card to select from and vegetarian options also available.

We requested to sit outside. We were seated next to 2 large parties. The tables were a little noisy making it a little difficult to hear the conversation at our table. Then a host asked us if we would move because they needed to use our table to set up for another large party. We were happy to move to a quieter area. We moved to a table behind where we were sitting knowing it would be a little quieter. After we were sitting at our new 2nd seat for about 15-20 minutes we noticed that they were setting up for another large party. They asked us to move a 3rd time to the other end of the patio which they said it would be quieter. We were seated near a group of about 8 people who were having a great time drinking and yelling. The employees seemed to ignore the noise even when I made comments about it. It appeared they did not understand.

The food was good and it was great that we did not have to wait to be seated.
