About the restaurant
Ernie’s Food & Spirits
The crossroads of cultivation, connection, and creativity. We strive to connect our craft of creating unique, locally inspired, and seasonally curated food with emotionally invested service.
The relationships we have created with local farmers, cultivators, brewers, and distillers, share the core ideals of our emotional investment. We are proud of our centralized location with seven major highways or interstate routes within twenty minutes of our front door. As we conceived our identity, we became fond of connecting our guests to the highest quality food and beverage our area had to offer. We have diligently partnered with local farmers to raise our own plots of fruits and vegetables, cheese makers to provide farmstead cheese, distillers who utilize the bounty around us, and brewers that strive to create the highest quality crafted product as we do in our restaurant. We look forward to connecting you to our ideals.

Thank you,
The Ernie's Family

Date night and it has been a while. This place is the best for miles. Staff is friendly and decore is refined but comfortable. We have been coming back for years. Quality proteins and very clean plating. There is a great wine list and full bar.

Service is amazing. Very attentive to your every need. The gauchos do an amazing job with the meats. Love the options for some seafood and pork. And the cheese is amazing!

About the restaurant
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 ambiance is beautiful, the staff is great, and the appetizer selection is great. We were a little disappointed that the bottle of wine that we ordered was not available. I would like to see a better selection of Artistanal tequila as everything that was offered is commercialized tequila.
