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 service and food were fairly good. The safety of the restaurant, not so much. Our back window was broken our luggage and all of our valuables were gone. Spent the evening with the local PD in the parking lot (who were amazing). I would not go back because their cameras were broken and we lost over $20,000 of our daughter’s chemotherapy drugs. If you choose to go, you may enjoy your evening with the local PD. I will not go back!!!!

    It’s always a nice place to bring friends and family that are hungry. Always a nice place to talk stories and eat good food that are reasonable. I would always go to a BJ restaurant. Thanks.

    This location does not honor Open Table reservations. The manager was quite rude while informing us of this information. Which I didn’t understand since we were not rude about receiving his information. All we knew is that we had a reservation through Open Table. No where on the App does it say we needed to call. Conclusion: call for a reservation at this location don’t use app. The server we had was disgruntled the whole time. It was as if she was doing us a favor by being there. We always thanked her when she would provide us with a service. However, she didn’t respond to anything.

    The salmon entree bowl was good and the Peanut butter pazookie was to die for. I look forward to my next visit. My husband and I drive through Waco once a month and usual stop on unique spots but thought we'd stop at this BJ's location. Jesse's service was amazing.

    BJ’s has a huge menu selection. We were a bit surprised that even though the restaurant was pretty empty l, we were seated in back to back booths rather than spacing us out further. They did have plastic dividers up, but they could have easily separated us more. We asked for salads first and while they were delivered first, the meal came out when we weren’t even halfway finished our salad. We also originally asked for a Caesar salad and then deleted it, but yet they charged us anyhow. Overall, our service was good and the food was hot and very tasty, so we will definitely go back.

    I never like to be negative about anything but last night was not an experience that makes me ever want to go back to BJs. I went with some of my college friends and it was supposed to be a “nice” meal for us in comparison to the cheap fast food we usually eat. When we sat down it seemed like our waitress was short with us. I assumed she didn’t think we would tip well or something given that we were young. Anyways, I would have liked her to be a little more pleasant but that’s not the real problem. I ordered the honey crisp chicken salad and bone in barbecue wings. Something that I’ve gotten multiple times. My salad came out without dressing and my wings came out boneless. I sent back the wings and asked for dressing for my salad. It just seemed weird. Like she thought we were making up what we really ordered. My wings came out undercooked cause I guess they rushed them out and I never got my dressing. We didn’t get refills on waters until all our cups were completely empty and the kitchen also messed up one of my friends orders. I wish that a manager would have come over and apologized or something. It seemed like our table was kind of swept aside and ignored. When I got the bill and paid $50 for the meal it seemed wrong. I did not enjoy a meal or have service worth $50. I’m really disappointed with my experience and hope that BJs sees this and makes it right.

    We booked our reservation using our $25 reward and the manager did not honor it. He said they didn't know about the rewards and only did the reservations with Open Table! We argued the point that it was a prepaid MasterCard with $25 on it and he said it didn't go through! This was very disappointing that he didn't even try and remedy the situation! Our food was great and so was our server, but management needs a big dose of "the customer is always right"!
