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.

A group of us (8) went on Thursday evening and enjoyed our meals very much. Three had the ribs or tri tip on the special Thursday night dinner. I had my Peruvian quinoa bowl which was delicious, as usual. Two people in our group had pasta dishes and of course, the dessert was great!!!!!!!!!

Food was good. Service was horrible. Never received silverware during my whole dining let a lone napkins. Reminded our server twice but never received any of them. They DONT validate parking. They claim they are not part of the Paseo. Hint hint they are too cheap to add parking to their lease. Will try the bar next time and take an Uber. Hopefully it's a better experience.

Big box restaurant with a mediocre big box experience. Building is an old Pasadena bank, very ornate and beautiful. Everything else about the experience was just mediocre.

The service was attentive, but I would have to say I wasn't thrilled with the food. Ive been here several times and have never been wowed with the food. This recent visit I tried the New Orleans jambalaya because it sounded good. It was not too spicy but what was a problem was the amount of salt. Another person with us got a salad with a piece of salmon on it and also noted that it was way too salty. My kids got the chicken tenders and fries and the fries tasted fine. Maybe I'll stick to pizza next time.

From the moment we were greeted at the door to the moment we left my friends and I were treated to nothing but the best of service.
Forgive me for not remembering her name but our server was so polite and made us feel so comfortable .
This night was special for me because I was meeting with school chums that I hadn’t seen in fifty yrs.
Thank you once again for a memorable night.

Brian subbed in for our assigned waiter on Tuesday, April 30th, and he was top notch! Our group of five women were all extremely delighted with his upbeat personality, his brilliant smile and his attentiveness. I say it's time for a commendation and a raise for Brian! We loved him!

I had the shrimp pasta and husband had fish n chips. Both excellent. Service was good and unhurried. We shared a trio poozkie and it was too much. Next time getting a single.

I have been eating the enlightened menu from BJ’s. We came to the BJ’s in Pasadena and I ordered it. It was very disappointing that all the pieces of asparagus were the ends of the stalk. Those pieces are inedible. You would think whoever was cooking would know the correct parts of the vegetable to include. Our server was very nice and the hostess was too. The only thing is no one took our dirty plates until I stacked them in the middle of the table. The venue is very large and has just about everything you could want on it.

We went to BJ's on New Years Eve. I ordered the double pork chop, only to be informed 10 minutes later that they were out. They paid for my meal which ended up being couscous mac & cheese and swedish meatballs (2 appetizers), neither of which was very good. The drinks were great, the garlic chicken bites were great. But overall, kinda disappointing. The best thing on the menu for me was the mac & cheese with bacon, now they've changed it to couscous. The server was GREAT. Luke warm about if I will go back any time soon.
