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.

    Enjoyed lunch choosing the $13 weekday lunch menu. The Strawberry salad, burger and Chicken, bacon ranch Piadina were all very good. The Mac and cheese balls were tasty too according to the 10yr old. Everything came out quickly. Staff very friendly and helpful. The only disappointment was the Ginger beer was very weak but could be the brand they have on hand.

    Made a reservation for a birthday dinner for 8 people for 6:30, we didn’t end up leaving until 9 after waiting an hour for food and 30 minutes for pizookies. Multiple plates were made incorrectly and we didn’t want to say anything out of fear of waiting additional time for corrections. Server was really nice about it but probably won’t be coming back

    Really slow service, brought out my son’s meal 15 min after the rest of the table with no apology, and no ketchup. Salad served with no utensils

    There were nine of us on a busy Saturday night. Lots of large parties. The food was overall good. They do impose an automatic 18% tip. I rated the service poor because the waits between ordering drinks and getting them, ordering food and getting it, asking for the check and receiving it, etc., were way too long. But I think they simply didn’t have enough staff. I felt sorry for our server. He and the others were busting their humps. So management, I hope you can add to your staff soon!

    Yes it was a busy Friday night. Reservations were at 630p. By 8p we still had no food. Very little interaction with staff. We were there for a birthday party. No one offered cake plates until we had already cut and ate the cake. Only good part of the evening was the food was good when it finally arrived
