Our food is filled with flavors from all around the world, keeping families and friends in mind. We are growing a great deal of produce for our menu via our rooftop greenhouse.

My now husband and I went to indulge about 2 hours after eloping. The staff went above and beyond to help us celebrate being newly married. It was truly a special evening. The food was also delicious!

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.

Food is great, but visit only if you've got time to kill.... Have dined here twice, once dinner and this time brunch. Food and presentation is best in the surrounding area. Waitstaff is very friendly. Host indicated that they did not log into Open Table, so could not confirm reservation...though they slid us in anyway. Both times the kitchen was backed up and took over an hour after order to get meal.
