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.

Our waiter was so thorough and knowledgeable! He gave the best suggestions and answered all of our questions without hesitation. They were quick and prompt with getting us good quality and delicious food. The restaurant wasn’t noisy at all and we could hear all of us talking to each other and able to have a good conversation without yelling to try and hear each other. I highly recommend this restaurant!

The food was subpar and had to be returned for correction. The server was mediocre, but the manager did correct my concerns.

The meal and the server were both good,BUT the hostess was rude and short with us. Despite having a reservation she told us she didn’t know when we would be seated. Another party of 5 ahead of us came over and told us she had been rude to them as well. Not a good first expression at all.

The food was excellent but the service was terrible. We had to beg to get our water glasses refilled, we waited forever for our food - waitress only came by once to see how our food was. Tea was never refilled. She would wait on tables around us but for our table of 4 she ignored. We ordered, mix drinks, appetizers, a meal and dessert so it wasn't like we didn't spend enough money. If I going to spend that kind of money for a meal I would have atleast had our water & tea glasses refilled.

Beware making a "reservation" on Open Table. All it does is gets you on the call ahead list. Don't call it a reservation unless you intend to seat people at the time of their reservation. I don't like being told it will be an additional 35-40 minute wait when we check in at our reservation time. Many other people made similar comments when checking in for their "reservation."

Only thing to complain about is they don’t take reservations. So using opentable is useless as they only have call ahead. Need to address this.

No reason to make a reservation ! We arrived 10 minutes early and waited 40 minutes to be seated. Food for the 6 of us arrived at 3 different times, 5 minutes apart each, with a side of fries arriving as we finished our meal. No drink refills - had to ask multiple times. Terrible experience.

Ribeye steak was full of fat & gristle and the ribs were tough. Grilled chicken breasts were perfectly cooked and was the sirloin steak.

Waited 25 min more after arriving 5 min before reservation time. Barely saw waitress and food took forever. Quinoa bowl had barely any quinoa in it. Salad didn’t come out with all the toppings listed on the menu. Restaurant was freezing. Literally nothing good about this encounter.

New burgers were had by all guests and were surprising very good. Recommended to others. HOWEVER —- they are NOT compatible with Open Table reservations. We made reservations couple hours ahead of time but when arrived they added us to the wait list as though we were walk in customers. Estimated 30 min wait... Not even treated as call ahead customers. I talked with the manager who said that she was sorry but that’s how it worked and wished it was more clear on OpenTable. They can see names from OpenTable but cant connect them to their system. Very disappointing....

The initial service was very bad. I reserved a table at 7:45pm and our party of 5 was not seated until 8:25pm due to the hostesses mix up. They confused us with another party, which had 13 guest. Once they discovered they made a mistake we were immediately taken to our table. No apology from management was provided and no concessions were offered. Luckily we had a great waitress who managed to salvage the night. She was awesome. The hostesses tasked with seating guests were lackluster at best.

A great seating layout. Sound is muffled by seating booths. Service staff was well educated on the extensive menu and a huge draft selection.

Met with relatives for a late lunch, while the food and service was great. It did take a bit to actually get our food.

Appetizer came out burnt, like so obviously burnt that it shouldn’t have even have been brought to our table. Two of us ordered a prime rib dip. It came out cold with barely any meat on it. The fries where ice cold too. We asked for fresh fries and they arrived 30 minutes later. The restaurant was not busy so there was no real excuse for this. We will not be returning anytime soon.

My husband and I always have a good time dining at BJs. It was a casual day and it wasn’t that busy so it was nice. There are plenty of tvs to watch games on - for the sports enthusiast.
