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.

    We did a reservation for my stepdaughter’s birthday ,she’s never been there so I was hoping it was a good first impression! It was horrible never will we go back again! Our waitress ignored us the whole time , after we ordered our food she came back to tell me they ran out of my food so I had to reorder something else well she never came back & we were waiting then other servers came & brought everyone else food & she never came back to take my order that was very rude I had to order from the waitress bringing our food out & she did it immediately & then our waitress never came back to check on us if we needed refills or something else so we had to flag another waiter down to bring us more sauce! The food was not good & the service was trash , & the bathrooms were dirty . The overall experience with my whole family going for a birthday dinner was literally horrible we all decided to never go back & give another Restaurant a Try!

    After being opened for after quarantine, some family members and my fiancé went to celebrate my birthday. Not only was the ambient quieter now with less people but the food tastes so much better because of the vibe of being less hectic. Such a great time and we enjoyed the food. Thank you to the staff and our waiter, Jose, for the great service and for all you do

    BJ's app is easy to navigate through to place an order and or make a reservation. On Friday, 6/12/2020 my wife and I dined in at this restaurant. Our server was very helpful in answering our questions about amending certain entrees. She also had a great big smile on her face and twinkle in her eyes; very hospitable. I only wish I'd remembered her name. We ate the Tavern-Cut pizza which has a very thin crust. It has become our favorite style of pizza. Try it!

    Reservation for 2 at 4:30 PM but not seated until 4:50 PM. Once seated at our table, we waited another 25 minutes after being seated without any service. Manager should have come over and apologized/offered a free appetizer.

    This was our first date night since shelter-in-place took place and it did not disappoint. There was plenty of space between tables and booths, servers were wearing gloves and masks, all parties were to wait outside so no crowding happens (which I don’t mind) everyone was extremely friendly, and the food was delicious! Im sure the cooks missed cooking too. I appreciate BJs attention to detail during these times. I felt safe while dining and I would def go again! Im so excited they are open and adding the option of reservations is so nice too!

    My first time to a BJ’s. I felt sorry for our lovely and kind server. When the food was delivered, our pizza was not cut and there was not a pizza serving utensil. The person delivering the food noticed this and took the pizza back to the kitchen. After 15+ minutes, our server came back to tell us they could not find our pizza and they were making another one. When the manager voluntarily came to our table, he explained that our last pizza was ruined as it had been put through the oven again. Apparently there was miscommunication in the kitchen that it needed to be “cut” but someone heard “cooked”?!? He apologized and said another pizza would be out in 3 min. The server said the pizza would be complimentary and that the manger offered desserts. But then the server returned to say the manager was not approving the desserts if the pizza was taken off the bill. Well, we did not go hungry, but I was not impressed to say that least.

    BJ’s restaurant was as busy as can be expected for a Saturday night. I had made reservations on Open Table for 7pm, we got there 10 minutes early and found out that the reservation was more like a “call ahead waitlist”. At about 7:10 there still was no seating available, but the hostess at the front offered us seating in the “open seating” by the bar. It was a comfortable booth. Our waiter was friendly and checked on us often. The menu was pretty expansive, offering something for almost everyone. The food was good and pricing comparable to similar style restaurants. Plenty of big screen TVs around. If you’re into sports, sit by the bar. The noise level was moderate to energetic. I’ll be back to try their pizzas - they looked good.

    The food was ok, matches the price point. I felt a little sick by end of meal, however, that could have been from a mix up with dishes. When I picked up my drink I commented the glass was hot like it just came out of the dishwasher and when I took a drink I got the taste of soap. I look closer and there were soap bubbles at the top of my soft drink. The service was ok. They tried to act nice but weren’t very attentive. We had to ask for share plates for the appetizers and chase the girl down for the bill. By the time she brought the check it made the experience awkward— I was trying to avoid argument over payment with my fellow guests but when she finally brought the check I discretely asked her for it wasn’t discrete any longer.

    Our reservation was for 6:30 (8 people) we checked in at 6:24. We did not get seated until 7:30. Two other parties of 10, who's reservations were after us, got seated before we did. This happened even-though I checked about the wait several times and we were standing in the lobby by the check-in counter the whole time.
