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 main issue we had was our reservation time. I scheduled 2 1/2 hrs ahead for a 2:00 time. We got there 10 min early n checked in . We were told it would be 45 min longer than the 2:00 set time. They sat a party of 20 n we were going to have to wait. I don’t mind waiting 5 to 10 min but not 45min. Why make a reservation.

    We've eaten here before in the experience and food have always been great. The last time though the service was not as great. We had a reservation for two at 1:30 and showed up at 10 after 1:00 and they seeded for other walking groups before I decided to get up and say something to them about us already having our reservation, then they said they had a table available. There wasn't even an apology for passing us over. Also during our meal we ordered drinks and 2 starters along with a pizza for the main course. The pizza was sent out first then the drinks and starters came after???

    BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse - PolarisResponded on January 17, 2023Thanks for letting us know about the service issue. I'm sorry about this. We will work with our team so this does not happen again.

    Our visit was on Saturday, January 14, 2023 for lunch @ 11:30. Restaurant was pretty quiet. Our server was training a new associate. He did not get the drink order right. The food order was accurate and very good. The only real downfall to our visit was how cold it was in the restaurant the entire time we were there. In fact we hurried out because it was so cold and we were not by the front door. When we arrived the restaurant was chilly but not too surprising when there were not very many people there. The place was almost fully occupied when we left and it seemed colder than when we arrived.

    I have ate here 3 times before and oved it. I decided to have my family come for a gift exchange. Our waiter was horrible. We never saw him, he messed up 2 of my family members meals, never refilled the empty glasses and finally came back when the check was due. He ended up removing the 2 meals but I was embarrassed since it was my pick.

    BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse - PolarisResponded on December 13, 2022Thank you for sharing your experience. Sounds like we didn't provide the outstanding service we strive for this time. We'll address this with the staff and make sure it doesn't happen again. We would like to make it up to you. Please swing back by our location and personally share this experience with the manager so we can do right by you.

    I’m furious. I get to the restaurant with my team. It’s packed. I go to the hostess and she informs me I don’t have a reservation as they don’t take reservations. I showed her the confirmation email and she did not care. We were put on the waitlist. It was awful!! I’ll never be back

Thank you for letting us know that our service wasn't up to par, and we apologize for having kept you waiting. Please don't hesitate to reach out to one of our managers the next time this happens. Our team will do everything we can to make it right.

    Typical BJs. My meal was average, jalapeño burger that had a whopping four jalapeños on it and the bun was very dry. My wife took a recommendation from our server but didn’t care for it and asked for something different, no problem doing it but they apparently don’t expedite in a situation like that, just goes in as an order, so I was long done with mine before she finally got hers.

    Salad was the worst I have ever had. Lettuce was soggy. They would only serve my steak rare. Then they put a sauce on it that wasn’t mentioned on the menu. My son liked the ribs. Appetizers were cold. Fried pickles and potato skins were not good. Service was quick and atmosphere was nice

    Our server was very personable, but there was an issue with splitting the check. We were there for a co-workers birthday, and there were 7 of us. We needed the check split 6 ways, and it seemed like quite an ordeal. Our server had to get manager approval to reprint the checks. This caused an avoidable delay during a time we were already pressed to get back to work. The food was great. Lots of different options. And the service was really good except for that one area.

    Best thing this place has going for it is their giant selection of draft beer. The food is a step above Purina and priced about 30% higher than it should be. Plenty of dining options in the area, I would recommend going to one of the others.
