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.

The restaurant was severely understaffed. I could tell the staff was overworked but they were still taking reservations. Had I known I would have most likely booked at another restaurant. The staff deserve a break while one hostess seemed to have an attitude everyone else was nice.

Our waiter was very good but the food wasn't as expected. The food took a long time to come. The soup had to be returned because it was cold. The other meals were room temperature to cold. It wasn't a good experience. Every restaurant has a bad day. I have dined there before and the food was good. I will return again to see if there have been improvements.

The food and service were good. BUT the craft beer selection, they show on the wall, they didn't have. I ask for 4 different drafts, including BJ brand and they were out of all of them.

The server was very good and accommodating despite being extremely busy. The tables, chairs and floor were sticky, and there were gnats on the wall. The kitchen was very slow and when the pizza came , there were no clean utensils to take the pizza out of the pan. It was not worth the wait or the price. We will not return

Our server took my order and mistook Soba Noodles as the one with peanut - I am allergic and I meant the Poke with Soba Noodles, I thought he understood Poke and went along with it. All our food at a table of 4 came out at the most random times. Most times I am happy with my service, this time around was the least pleasant

They were busy; wanted to sit outside but they did not have the staff for that, which was understandable. Overall, the food was great, drinks were great and the service was good (a bit on the slower side), but everyone was friendly and had good customer service!

The food is always good but the noise level is very high. There’s nothing they can do about the noise bc of the open space design. So go and enjoy the food but plan to have your conversations in the car or on the benches in front of the restaurant.

The table was ready ontime. Everyone liked their food. We were surprised how quiet it is even though there were plenty of people. The service was a little slow but the waitress was very nice and got all our orders correct.

BJ’s is still dealing with coming off COVID restrictions and supply availability. There were a few Items from the menu not available and the service was pretty slow. The wait staff came to the table twice to tell us the food would be out soon. Thankfully we are a chatty bunch and could occupy the time. Besides it was so good to be out that we really didn’t pay that much attention to the delay. TO BE SURE I WILL COME BACK… their Tri Tip
Wedge salad is to die for.

This restaurant has great selection of food. My family was looking for a place to watch the Super Bowl and this place worked out fantastic. There was plenty of room and t.v.s mounted throughout, so there wasn't a bad seat.

The whole process from booking a reservation through payment was seamless and contactless. I was very impressed that even though they enacted a high level of precautions, the atmosphere still felt warm and inviting. Our server was very attentive and chipper! We will certainly be back!

BJ’s is a great place to go for a date. I went here on my first date and they had great service, delicious food, and neat scenery. The staff also does a great job at enforcing social distancing between booths and tables. Definitely recommend this place.

You need your phone to pull up the menu. Their web site is a little tricky to navigate, so you may want to check it out before you go. Food and service was good. It was nice to eat for a change.

Obviously they were not ready to open after covid. You are a manager of a restaurant and can tell your corporate office what patrons like or don't like. Usually I love BJ's and I am a rewards member. However, took 50 minutes to tell me they were out of my fish. My husband's dinner had been ready and he finished eating without me. I had to take my home as a carry out and still had to wait 25 minutes for a steak and cheese sandwich. Menus had to be looked up on your phone. Luckily, I had bought mine with me. I guess if you didn't have a cell phone you were out of luck. Management passed the buck onto corporate, but as a manager she could have said to corporate people are complaining and want disposable menus. I am not going back to visit for at least 3 weeks, until they remember how to meet their customer's needs, seem to have forgotten since they have been out due to Covid.

We had a large party and made a reservation to ensure there was a table large enough for us and that it was ready when everyone arrived. When I arrived for our reservation, they acted shocked we needed a table for 10, proceeded to sit 4 other tables (who came in after me) before me and only then slowly set up the table for our large party.

I went out to lunch with friends and had a great time at BJ’s. The booths were a little tight - with our purses and coats. The food was good and the portions were large enough to share.

Yessssss! to the mixologist and Malik the server and staff, but the kitchen and I just could not get it together! I hada petite sirloin that would not get done medium well, but the loaded mashed potatoes and asparagus were excellent. My companions definitely enjoyed their meal. I would go back for the atmosphere and the food. The management was very attentive and paid great attention to the patrons. It was a fun place to hang with friends, date night or celebrations.
