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.

    Great place for Pub food and classic beers. we were two couples in a booth and had a great time. It could be the same if it was with 4 guys after work for a happy hour get together.

    WE arrived at the restaurant and got seated quickly. Waited over an hour to get food. Not that happy. Since a table of 4 came in after us and got their food quicker than we did. Wouldn't recommend to go on a Friday or Saturday night. You will be there for a long time.

    Food was bad. Prime rib was the fattiest thing I’ve ever seen (probably 9 oz of fat on a 15 oz prime rib). Service was bad as well. Got soups and salads after meals and had to ask for them or probably never would have received them. Went with four people and everyone’s meal was well below average.

    Food needed a lot of work we got the Alfredo and the pork chop. The Alfredo was dry they forgot the garlic not. The pork chop was a little undercooked but I managed. The “ “sautéed”green beans were steamed. The server didn’t really care to much to hear us.overall not a good experience if I’m paying over 120 for a few meals I expect good food not a McDonald’s experience.

    Very beautiful inside, wait staff was a little slow, originally my entrée came out incorrect, but was corrected quickly. I got the ribs which were tasty, but a bit over sauced. My girlfriend had the kicken chicken sandwich which was kind of bland, and it didn't come with a side of coleslaw, even though the menu said it did. Got the pazookies for dessert, and they were amazing! All in all it was good, well be back to try some different items.

    I got the Tri_tip salad again and it was very good. We tried the burger with guacamole and it also ws very good. The clam chowder was a bit skimpy in the offering but was also just good. The service, I will say is poor. The first time and the second time. The servers do not come back after they deliver the food to ask if it to your liking. They do not seem very concerned at all about customer service.

    What I like most is the big menu. Something for everyone and full bar products as well as their own beers. Can be loud with all the people. Be kind with service- staffing issues like many after Covid lock down - but don’t go there for a quick mea. Plan to stay and enjoy the sports on the big screens, we did several times already. Will go back again.

    Seating was super prompt and they were able to get us to a table as soon as we walked in. Food was great however it seems like there is a lack of training on how things get ordered at the bar. Wait staff did not know that a margarita “straight up” meant served with no ice, and when asked about light beer they thought we meant light in color instead of light in calories. So definitely a disconnect there. Other than that, great experience.

    Worst service I have had at a restaurant in a long time. Our waitress forgot about us multiple times, our experience took over 2.5 hours and the restaurant was not busy. Our waitress also just cleared to plates from our table, to the table next to us. It was very horrible service. I have been here a few times and most the time it’s great, but this experience made me not want to drive the 40 minutes to go back. She literally didn’t take our meal order until an HOUR after we got there because she never came to check on us.

    Starters were broccoli cheddar soup for me and side Caesar salad for my date. He went with the lemon thyme chicken which, when presented, did not look at all appetizing covered in a red sauce (tomato or pepper?). Root vegetables did not seem to go well and were left in the bowl, but at least there was a lot of chicken! My root beer glazed ribs and a side of sweet potato fries were quite good. No room for dessert tonight.

    This place seems to be packed but we’re not sure why. Tried this restaurant almost 2 years ago and decided we’ll give it one more try. The menu and food are mediocre and just not worth it. Tried the deep dish pizza for $30 and honestly it was a large hump of dough with some sauce and cheese..plus salt. Was going to have a burger but looked at Yelp pictures and you get the same size patty as you would at McDonald’s. Save your money!

    Waitress Mary was amazing and attentive. However the lack of food was disappointing shrimp was out, no diet soda, no churro pizookie. About half of the times are table if 4 tried to order were out. The food was decent but not the best we have had at BJ, probably will not return. Bill ended up being $88- seemed overpriced for the value of the food.

    Great menu options and beer menu. Love that we don’t have to yell over loud music being piped in over dinner. Comfortable temperature and really like the privacy plexi between the seating to create a very nice conversation space. Four of us all really enjoyed the apps and our dinners which varied from pizza to salad to seafood. Beers were fresh and loved the variety. Service was very good. Also really appreciate being able to make reservations for a predictable dining experience. We will be back.

    Wish there were more vegan options, but the lentil soup is always delicious! Our server was great and friendly. Even though she also had a huge party at the same time, we were served and out in 45 minutes. Typical noisy sports bar atmosphere, with lots of big TVs.

    Food was awesome, the shareable apps are massive, we were a table of 3 but it could have served 5. Only complaint was it took a very long time for a server to get to us despite having a reservation, but once she did, she was great!
