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.

Omar was the highlight to our visit. His deep voice was intimidating at first but then when you get to know him a little he's awesome. :) We have been to a few BJ chains in the past and the only thing we ever remember are the desserts. Now we remember why. The food, not just at this location, is very bland. This location also felt very dirty, so much in fact that for the first time ever my wife wanted to get home fast to change out of her clothes' because of it. We will not be returning to any locations, except maybe for a dessert.

The greeter, waiter, and manager were all very accommodating and apologetic about the limited menu and service shortage on Labor Day. We were celebrating my step-daughter’s 50th birthday, and our waiter was so kind during the candle lit dessert. I appreciate all their efforts and sympathize with their trying to keep customers happy with very limited staff and food.

The food was amazing. We had a reservation but didn't get seated until 7:40. Say the the table no waitress or anything until my partner spoke to someone. We waited almost 20 mins for drinks. Our end of the day waiter was 10 out of 10 but the rest was terrible. Next time I will do curbside.

Service was meh. There were 4 servers sitting around waiting for tables to be populated. Our server was in charge of the only 2 tables occupied (ours and another) and the WHOLE bar (?). I guess that is a management issue, he tried his best but was stretched thin (inexplicably). I was there with some older people and children without cell phones. The menu is only available via QR code (bc of covid) but come on, keep some paper print outs around instead of making people pass around one phone and dig thru screens for the menu. Sigh....
The food was fine. Burgers were big and juicy. The ice cream pizza trio we got was tasty as were the chicken wings. Would go back again & hope the service issues get worked out after covid.

Not sure if it's the management or just staffing, but we have just recently had very poor service at BJs. When we arrived for lunch on a Saturday, there was only 1 other table seated. Our "server", never got his name, was absent. We had to ask the other server for refills. Our server kept going into the bar area though no one was seated in that area or was sitting at the bar. We eventually had to call across the restaurant to get his attention. Despite only one other table, our appetizers took 20 minutes to come out. For the classic chicken sandwich, either the bun is too big or chicken filet too small in that it covered only 1/2 of the bun. The chicken pita tacos had barely any chicken in them and they were out of the quinoa side salad. Just a very disappointing visit.

Our visit was on Saturday at lunch. Our server was nice, but either they didn't have enough servers or our server kept "disappearing". Drinks weren't refilled - food came out staggered. The food was good -warm not hot. They didn't check us in upon our arrival as requested (has happened multiple times at this restaurant), then later received an email from Open Table that our reservation had been cancelled since we were a no show. Not sure if this is the restaurant's attempt at not paying the fees associated with OT or what, but it's aggravating!

Everything was great. Our reservation was for 5. My daughter had a group of 12 to celebrate her 17th b-day. The female waitress was okay, a little sarcastic, but okay otherwise. Lisa was awesome, very accomadating and patient. I sat at the bar just to be close but away from the kids. The bartender Anna was awesome.
I had the shrimp tacos and a Berry Hard Cider, they were delicious.

We had reservations for 7 at the movie theater and we were done by 6:35; giving us enough time to take pics and go to concession before the movie.

It was a great day.

The food and service were good. The only issue was the number of juveniles loitering and running around outside. It makes one feel uneasy getting to and then leaving the restaurant. It is also a distraction while in the restaurant with them running around outside and walking on top of the planter walls directly in front of the windows. We will no longer go to the neighboring movie theater because of those individuals that make for an unpleasant experience. BJ's is probably already losing business as a result and it will just get worse if they are not able to ban together with the neighboring restaurants, elected officials, and police to prevent these gatherings in front of their establishments.

With all the COVID restrictions these last 6-7 months, it was important that we really celebrated my daughter’s birthday but in a safe way. The entire staff followed safety protocols, guests were seated a safe distance away from each other, good food, good value, excellent service! It was a wonderful birthday celebration at BJ’s!

The best thing was using open table to avoid the wait. The table we were seated was dirty and had request it be cleaned. The server was slow overall. The food was brought out but no silverware, asked server and other servers for silverware to hopefully expedite matter since food were present. One tea was never received and the other tea did not include the ingredient to make it a peach lemonade and asked for another one that was delayed in arrival. The bill included the tea that was never received and the reward number was not included. This is my second time visiting and each visit in Michigan and Maryland were not good experiences and the food was ok. I may try one more time and hope the third time is the charm!

Overall, the experience was okay, but we wouldn't be in a hurry to return. The restaurant wasn't crowded and the noise level was low which made for a nice atmosphere - very comfortable. Some of our party had been previously and appreciated the large and varied menu and food quality.

Our server was friendly enough, but throughout the meal, we still felt somewhat rushed. The restaurant wasn't crowded and no one was waiting for a table, so there was no reason to rush us through our meal. Not a big deal, but noticeable.

The appetizer was very disappointing. We ordered the nachos with chicken and received a plate of chips with barely a sprinkling of any toppings. We even questioned whether there was any chicken. We found a few tiny pieces. One half teaspoon of sour cream. Maybe a teaspoon of pico de gallo. Maybe a tablespoon of cheese.
It was truly pathetic. The appetizer sets the tone for the whole meal and it felt like a complete rip-off. For the price charged, it was.

Our meals were enjoyable enough and made up for the lousy starter. But still everything seemed overpriced for the quality and quantity - the side tomato and mozzarella salad was tasty but an expensive add-on. Chicken sandwiches and burgers were decent. We enjoyed the cookie desserts, but again, low value, high price. Our overall experience was just okay, not great.
