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.

Food was good and the service was great except that our appetizer came after our food and we ordered the appetizer about 10 minutes earlier. Also, $14 for egg rolls was a bit steep.

Way over-booked... told us we'd have to wait awhile for our table as they were busy and could not honor our reservation time. We left and won't return.

Very disappointing based on past experiences. Portions were really reduced while prices spiked. I know we are in hard times but my $14 BBQ bison burger almost disappeared in its empty plain bun with nothing on it. Had to waive down staff to fill drinks, mustard, and check. Very inattentive to us even with few people. Would have tipped much more to help everyone but horrible service. No gloves when he handled my drinks and plate. Table was not clean. BJ's can do better and I will be happy to return. Just give me enough food to match the price increase please. Too crowded at exit and could not distance to exit. Felt very uncomfortable. Work on things BJ and community will be glad to help you out.

This is a great place for a nice dinner. The prices are very reasonable, especially if you split an entree, which is easy to do. And the desserts are killers!

I ordered a margarita which I have had many times here. It arrived in a tall glass and was orange. I took a sip and called our waitress over. I told her it had orange juice in it which didn't belong. She left and came back shortly to say the bartender says he always puts OJ in margaritas. NO YOU DON'T. That was all you could taste. No tequila and no sour.
They did not offer to make a new one or take it off the bill.
I am not hurrying back.

We like the “social distancing”. They had every other table shut down so it was comfortable, not crowded, and the reduced number of tables in use really cut down on the noise level. They tried to have you use your phone for ordering and payment, but when we told the server we were technology challenged, he gave us paper menus and a regular check! LOL

My rib-eye steak was full of gristle. I couldn't even cut it with the carving knife. They had no baked potatoes at 5PM. We were left without a waiter almost the entire period. At least they didn't charge me for the steak.

Our meals were excellent. Service was the worst we have ever experienced in BJ’s. We both ordered simple
meals and were there 1.5+ hours for a quick bite to eat.It was busy but BJ’s is always busy. All of the tables around us were served in a timely manner. It was our waitress that was inattentive. We finally asked to see a manager. She delivered desert. She didn’t identify herself as the manager until we asked. She said it was a busy night and the waitress was behind. She just didn’t get it!

Had my in-laws in town for lunch with my husband & I and our kids. Planned ahead & made a reservation & was given a table right next to Hostess stand & in the midst of all the tables of people yelling for their football teams. It was so noisy & not enjoyable at all!

We always enjoy BJ’s in Laguna Hills. Our server, Elizabeth S. was excellent and working very hard as the restaurant was packed. She still took time to answer questions, was on top of everything and made our birthday celebration extra special. She is a great asset to this organization. The Wednesday special, loaded burgers were delicious. The food server could benefit from some social tips as he seemed to be in a hurry, very direct and not a good listener. Possibly just having a hard night. Overall the atmosphere was very comfortable.

My husband and I eat at BJ’s all the time, it’s close to our home. We like the food, drinks and service but last night the Moroccan chicken was terrible! It’s dry, the cauliflower was mushy and tasteless and the sauce (not sure what it was that they used but nothing taste Moroccan about it!

The boneless short-ribs were tough and dried out. The veggies were mushy and were over seasoned with too much pepper. We sent both of these back. The baby back ribs were not up to the normal standard for BJ’s. We were too hungry and frustrated to send these back. The poozokie was raw in the center. Like eating cookie dough with ice cream

My experience was just OK. I didn’t feel like my waitress was very attentive. There was no checking to see if I would like more to drink. I felt like I was a bit forgotten for a while there. My friend told me that this is the third BJs she’s been to with blasé service. At least the food was good!

The hostess walked us to the very rear of the restaurant passing lots of open booths. I don’t know why we ended up in the back. The waitress Olivia failed to give me my discount and had to see the manager to fix it. She talked so fast we kept having her repeat herself.
