BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse - Redmond
Made reservation and told when we checked in that it would be 10-15 minute wait despite reservation. Once seated we waited 15 minutes for a waiter without water served or anything. Finally a nice waitress who was working a different section saw us and stepped in.
i reserved a table. i went at the time and the restaurant was closed. i went all the way there to eat and open table still was accepting reservations when the restaurant was closed.
I think we just had an unfortunate experience. We ordered appetizers, salads and main entrees. Firs the salads came out. Then the entrees. The staff was confused and didn't talk to each other. They gave us the last appetizers for free but they had been sitting somewhere a long time and came to the table and didn't seem very fresh. The wait staff delivered the food and didn't know where any o the entrees went --no big deal but also not hard to solve for a restaurant. The food is good, not great and I'd probably go back for watching sports or to go somewhere with kids as there is so much on the menu. Just need to get their act together a bit.
We had a great new waiter, Daniel, who assisted getting half our family from the table they were seated at moved to our table that we had reserved through Open Table. Once the confusion as to tables was resolved all was fine! The food portions are very generous, interesting microbrews and we appreciated our waiters knowledge of the beers and what foods to pair with the different microbrews. Would recommend for families as well as a couple looking for a casual dinner out.
Reservations were for 6pm and we were seated almost 40 min later. The hostess tried to justify this by saying some other party waited 2hrs (but didn’t have a reservation).
We went for a birthday dinner. The appetizer was alright. The root beer ribs lacked meat, but the glaze was fantastic. The birthday girl wanted the rib eye done Chicago style, which it was not even close. She also ordered a baked potato with butter, it took a while to get the butter. The southern comfort sandwich was well perfect. We also ordered the chicken Alfredo, while it was good. The Alfredo was a little plain.
BJs is famous for their fresh beer and tasty food.I love the ambiance during the NFL game.
I love the BJ's in South Center, but the service at the Redmond location was not great. Messed up multiple orders and never refilled water or checked in. Food was delicious.
Had a great casual dinner with friends. Good food, fair price. Pretty noisy due music, energetic place making communication sometimes challenging. Friendly employees.
Food was ok, way too many menu choices. Calamari not very good at all, root beer was delish as ware their burgers. Our waiter was not great at all. Too much cologne, never once checked on us after our food came. Overcharged on our bill, couldn’t figure out how to fix so we got our app for free which was cool.
Nice for the price. Extra large menu. Fun and friendly .
Food was terrible
My reservation was canceled by the manager as they thought it was set for the day before. I called and they said it was reinstated. I arrived at the restaurant and was greeted with the manager stating that they never knew when we were coming in. So for six adults we were placed in a booth in the back which was not comfortable and cramped.
Our visit this time was kind of funny, kind of sad. The restaurant was out of shrimp scampi or any kind of scampi but still had shrimp - none of us understood why that was a problem as shrimp scampi is not a difficult recipe to make. It took three attempts to get a comparable meal custom made; which turned out OK, not great. And the other order that had shrimp (not scampi) came out with chicken instead of shrimp. Our table host was pleasant and positive, kudos to him for dealing with an awkward situation.
Sliders were overcooked and saute onions came 3/4 through the meal. Took awhile for our meal even though restaurant not busy. Waiter was friendly and helpful.
Thank you for the fabulous service ; even the manager came over to discuss dietary issues! The food was good. Great salad and menu choices.
