Sam was a great server. Please note, as an avid Mussels purchaser, I broke down and brought my own seafood fork.

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.

Overall, it was a pleasant experience. Things ultimately felt a little overpriced for the quality received. I ordered the Filet Mignon, medium. It arrived completely brown inside, tough to cut, and dry. It had basic flavor…the only saving grace that made it edible was the melted garlic butter on it. I did enjoy the Tomato and Mozzarella salad and mashed potatoes I ordered as well.
