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.

Surprisingly slow for BJs and the amount of tables they were limited food. Quality wasn’t as expected especially for the price.

Lots and lots of choices for everyone's taste. We each had something different and we all enjoyed our selections. My favorite "go-to" place -- when in a hurry, in the neighborhood, late at night, with a large party or when I'm not sure what I'm hungry for.

The lack of masks by patrons upon entry and the incorrect wearing by the manager was disconcerting . But the staff was perfect and in line with code.

We had a party of 12 and had reservations set for Christmas Eve. We were seated right away and had our drink orders served quickly. We had 2 vegans, a pescatarian, and a vegetarian dining within the group. We all left satisfied and full. Thanks for making our Christmas Eve special.

I was very disappointed in this visit. As a long-time rewards holder, I’d like to hear back from a manager.

Food is hit or miss. We waited over 40 minutes for it to come out and then it was either cold or undercooked. Always difficult with larger parties.

Great servers. Pizza had no flavor. Needs more tomato sauce or spices especially for the relatively high price of the pizza.

The food was good but their Jeremiah Red beer is excellent. It gets loud, the wait staff gets a bit busy, and teenagers were throwing coasters that hit my friend but I guess that isn't BJ's totally?

They moved us to a larger table because we had one more person than planned. The busboy cleaned our new table and the booth seats very well. The waitress was energic, funny, patient, attentative, fast, and just the perfect waitress. Our food arrived quickly and the order was exactly what we’d ordered. The food was good.

Our service was really bad this time, laughably bad. They comp’d us our child’s pizza because it came out 45 min late, and while I’m not looking for freebies, this was a weak effort to win back our business. With all the technology they employ at BJs (iPads for each waiter, etc.) the place is not run well. Everything was slow. I’d recommend Selma’s or Gina’s over BJs.
