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.

It is a good place to gather but not if you are looking for quality service. The staff is not welcoming and they act like they are too busy for you. The waiters do not come by frequently to fill up water or check if you need anything. We never got the ketchup we asked for. This has been all the BJ Restaurants I've been at. I've gone quite a few times because the food is good and its a great social spot. BUT DO NOT GO if you are looking for good service it will irritate you more than the food is worth.

Was disappointed to find out no Happy Hour on Fridays. Food was not hot. Food ordered looked nothing like the picture.

The table was dirty that we were seated at, then the table across from us was never cleaned or wiped when the people left and the flyer, salt and pepper were put in place ready to seat the next. I ordered mashed potatoes which cam out cold without butter, asked our waitress for butter and it took forever, by that time they were ice cold and not touched.

My husband is quite disabled. Everyone was helpful and courteous. Wheel chair access was good (i.e., sufficient space to maneuver between tables, not always the case).

Yes. They had a great selection of food, beer, and drinks. The only complaint was we had a reservation and we didn't get seated until after 7:30 pm.

Whenever we are in town we look forward to visiting this restaurant. They have so many options on the menu that you will find something good for everyone at the table. The beer selection is fun too!

BJ’s is a good, local restaurant. The only “downside” is the menu almost has TOO much to choose from. I’d rather see a restaurant with a few things they do better than anyone else, than one that has a ton of vanilla offerings similar to other chain restaurants.

We had a 6pm reservation and waited 40 mins to be seated. We were escorted to a table with 6 chairs and had to wait several minutes for adequate seating. No one acknowledged the missteps or offered apologies. Finally, the floor felt super slippery, as if it had been mopped with vegetable oil. This did not inspire thoughts of safety or cleanliness. Would not recommend.

Casey was an excellent server. She served us our hot meals in a timely manner. Always checked on us to see if we needed anything else with our meal. Came to the table with a smile!

I took a client's office out for an early dinner and cocktails. Our waiter was very good...the food is moderately priced and fairly consistent across the country. BJ's is always a safe bet if your traveling and need a place of comfort.

Went to lunch after the movies. Great location to shopping and the movies. They offer indoor and outdoor seating. The beer/alcohol menu was extensive. Lots of food options on the menu with various sandwich options, entrees, salads and desserts. The pizookis are awesome. These are cookie skillets that you can get mini or regular size options with lots of flavor options. We have the peanut butter option and it was delicious. I had the small size Buffalo chicken pizza and it was great. The restaurant is clean and neat with lots of available seating options from table, booths, bar and outside tall tables. I look forward to going back!

It took 15 minutes after sitting down for a server to get our food and drink orders and then another 15 minutes before we got our drinks. They blamed a "computer error", so this is hopefully just a one time thing.

Definitely in no rush to find out.


Food came quickly after the drinks, and things tasted fine. So I gave 2 stars despite the extremely slow start.

Food is overpriced but the craft beer is good value
