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.

Always a great time when we come here. We come at least once a month and always leave satisfied.

My daughter has celiac disease and the staff seems very knowledgeable about gluten free items. My daughter was able to out at a restaurant worry free, which is not something she gets to do much.

The only things that we wanted from the menu (and traveled there to eat) were unavailable. Server was surprised and had no understanding of why they had been taken off of the menu for that night.

I would have given 5 stars, because our meal was excellent. They were very busy, and we didn’t get our appetizer until after our dinners had been served. Don’t know if it was the fault of our server or the kitchen, but we managed to eat everything regardless of the order in which it came!

We like BJ's and will return. You just have to know that it is loud and busy. It's a little pricey, 2 beers, 1 app and 2 entrees are around 55$. A reservation on Friday & Saturday are a must!

I like this place. My biggest complaint is they bring your appetizers then before you have a chance to eat’em they bring the salads or the entrees!

This has happened several times. Feels like they are trying to rush you out. Have to send entrees or salads back until appetizers are finished.

Very frustrating.

Waitress tried to take order before the entire party had arrived. She got 3 orders incorrect which she blamed on the machine. Too expensive for lunch, over $200. for lunch...unacceptable.

We had a wonderful first time experience at BJ’s. The service and food was excellent. Despite it being a very busy night, we were sat right at 6:30 per our reservation. Within minutes our server introduced himself and explained the feature of the night and the menu. He took our drink order and within about five minutes our drinks arrived. I was very impressed with the staff.

First time visitor to the Brewhouse. Menu was incredibly diverse; server very personable and knowledgeable about the options. Service was very slow. Drinks came out immediately but it was at least 15 minutes before server passed by and I caught her attention to order. One person ordered soup and told server she liked it extremely hot. When it arrived 10-15 minutes later the server indicated it was steaming hot. It was cold so we sent it back to be microwaved.

We watched other patrons who arrived after us get their orders well before ours. Twice she said they were plating food and yet it was easily another 20 minutes. Overall time between seating and arrival of food was easily 1 hour and 20 minutes.

The food was excellent. The four people in our party ordered 4 different entrees and all four commented on how delicious it was. Portions were appropriate size, good temp and very good. Only complaint was asparagus was not trimmed and varied greatly in size resulting in some Overcooked and some just right.

Ambiance was fine - a little loud but not overwhelming. Our guests were friends we haven’t seen in years so we were able to talk without yelling.

So impressed with the service. Drinks were brought within minutes after ordering - even the wine! Plenty to chose from on the menu- we really enjoyed the Parmesan Chicken and the Mediterranean Chicken Pita tacos. We had made our reservations on Open Table, and despite the number of people waiting for tables, we were taken to our table immediately - more often than not at most places, even with reservations, this seldom happens. This is a restaurant that does it all right, very impressed and will definitely put this into our regular rotation.

The host was SO SWEET when we walked in and were seated! Our waitress tried to charge us $10 more than we were supposed to pay, but we eventually got it fixed.

Overall it was good. Took a little bit of time to get drinks but service was good after that. Replaced a rice pilaf that was bad with no questions. There was a random 10% "delivery fee" on my bill that nobody could explain. They took it off.

Side of bbq sauce was heated to an unsafe temperature to consume. My burger contained onions, even though I requested none. My bill included a double charge for the bad burger. The Manager was rude and made faces at me that my daughter could see.

Seated promptly with my reservation. The food was just a bit above average. The New grilled steak sandwich was rather small portion, not enough grilled veggies. Flavor was good. French fries very good. Husband said that the meatball hoagie was very average tasting, rather small portion. Wine pour was generous. Service was excellent. This was our second visit. Will go another time. This time for pizza. No more sandwiches. Unless someone can recommend one to me.

Slow service. Took 30 minutes to get first drink after being seated at table. Food and repeat drinks took long time too. Men’s room was strewn with discarded paper hand towels. Did not look as the staff was giving restrooms good attention. Food was good but service not the best.

The server was extremely nice but the kitchen let her down. Food came out lukewarm and we were not overly satisfied. Unlikely to be going back.
