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.

Chicken nachos weren't great and the chili tasted like can chili. The jambalaya was very good though.

This was our first post-COVID-19 dining experience. The food was amazing! The best part, though? Our server, Jesse! He made the entire experience even better (if that was even possible)!

We use BJ's as a meeting place as it's halfway between Sacramento and the Bay Area. We enjoy the wide selection as each member of our group has very specific likes/dislikes. Our server this last time was great; unfortunately I don't remember her name.

We arrived 5 minutes earlier than our reservation(6:30) but were told they didn’t have enough menus nor a table for the 5 of us. We finally were seated 20 minutes later! The desk person had an “attitude” & was abrupt & rude! Our server was embarrassed due to lack of supplies & foods from the menu. The 3 white wines we ordered were not available nor was a lite beer! We ordered our meal (appetizer —-spinach dip—-was very tasty!) My sweet potato fries (extra cost!!) were COLD!, no ranch dressing for dipping for a Luke warm pizza!, 10 minutes to bring ketchup, refills on coke never came, turkey club was soggy,....shall I go on? I asked to speak to the manager...no one came!
This was our first visit to Vacaville BJ’s. The one in Foster City has been excellent thus we wanted to try Vacaville’s restaurant.
Will we return after such an unpleasant dinner? Decision is still out on that! Price was expensive for cold food! Disappointing!!

Even though we did not have a great experience there this past week, I would still recommend BJ's. If have had very nice meals there in the past, but this particular one was a disappointment. The service was good and it was 1/2 off wine night. We both ordered a tritip plate. I have never had a tougher piece of meat. The taste was good. But who leaves silver skin on tritip? We couldn't even cut it. So order tritip at your own risk.

Both times we have come the order have been incorrect. And each time we have said “We’ll Done” for a steak meal it always has to be sent back to be cooked further. Other than that it’s been a great experience.

If you’re looking for a place to eat before or after shopping at the Vacaville Outlets, this is the place for you. It is casual with options to please everyone. On the weekends, they offer brunch as well as their multi page menu. They have a children’s menu and give the kids crayons to color it once they’ve placed their order. Our server, Zaira, was fantastic! When we go back, we’ll request her.

We love the food and hate the toddlers that are allowed to run around screaming. This is not the fault of you but the parents on their cellphones ignoring the kids.

This dinner took 3 hours. We had a large group of 10 that sat next to another larger group. Both tables had 1 server that did a fantastic job of trying to get all of both tables taken care of but the groups were just too large for 1 person and the kitchen was so slow it became ridiculous. The appetizers came out cold and the nachos down right gross. Then right after the 40 minute wait for 2 appetizers the food came! Not the best food that I’ve had here. Something was very wrong in the kitchen because it was another 30 minute wait for dessert. All in all kind of a very sad experience for our special bday dinner with our family. It would be nice if the manager had come over

Made reservations with open table and still had to wait 20-30 min for our reserved table. Waiter was not attentive,switched out for break and his replacement never came to check on us. Our food came out and there was hair in chicken parmesan! Told the server and he took it back, but ended up canceling it bc we were all finished with our dinner . Not coming back here again.

It took a really long time to get our food. It was at least 45 mins to an hour to get our appetizer. Apparently, another waiter took our order so we waited a long time. The food was okay but not great. Not sure if we will come back again soon.

When we got there, OpenTable somehow had forgotten to reserve us a table but the hostess managed to get us in with little waiting time. Other than that, everything else was great!

I don't know what this OpenTable relationship is to BJ's but my reservation was more or less put aside as unnecessary by the hostess. I mainly wanted to let BJ's know I was a 'member' or whatever they call their subscriber list. It didn't matter one of my pal's grabbed the check. . .

Yeah I'd recommend BJ's. There are a lot of menu choices, reasonable prices and according to my dining companions, a good selection of beers.

The service was good, not memorably good, but better than I was expecting. The lunches were well presented and the wait time was negligible. Our server never checked back to see if my comrades wanted more beer or if my ice tea needed refilling. Desert options were barely addressed.

The place is loud. Not fun loud or event loud, just loud enough to be noticeable such that I looked around to see why. Nothing special seemed to be going on, so the place is just loud.

Service is good, everybody is friendly. Food could be a bit healthier, not overcooked, place is overcrowded, tables are too close together you can take a bite of the next table plates. But if you need a quick bite to eat, find a good beer and upbeat atmosphere, you found your place.

The open table reservation was great. Walked in and we were seated immediately. However, service was slow. Waited for more than 15 minutes several times for wait staff to return when they said they’d be a minute and although the meals came out together it was clear they had been sitting under heat lamps. Only went because we were given a gift card.

We had a good time. The food was delicious and the service from Kevin our waiter was excellent. Make sure you ask for Kevin to be your waiter and you won’t be disappointed.
