The food selection is vast, it’s delicious and just the right amount. The owner, Maurice, goes to every table and speaks to the guests. It was a great experience.

My new favorite restaurant. Love the food and the way they bring out different meats to eat. So delicious. And the pineapple, OMG. There's not a thing I didn't enjoy. Service is always excellent too. I drive 45 minutes from home just to come and enjoy this wonderful place. Hope they open one up in Rhode Island soon. A+++

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.

We were seated promptly. Our server Sean was polite, energetic, and attentive. He made suggestions for beer flight choices and answered our questions. All the food was great. We had a delightful visit and can’t wait to go back.

Fall River
About the restaurant
BarCa is defined as a fine dining restaurant: signature cuisine, served informally in a sophisticated environment. It aims to be an innovative space, not only with regard to the approaches it proposes, but also by simplifying and breaking some basic rules of the service, which is rigorous but relaxed.

For Luis Bettencourt, and Rosa Bettencourt there is only good cuisine and bad cuisine. Yours defines it as a cuisine of flavor: refined taste, perfect technique and excellent product. The basis of its gastronomic philosophy lies in its influences and references: travel around the world, passion for Africa, knowledge of traditional Portuguese cuisine, life in Portugal!

Everything that we ordered was delicious. We had the bread and cheese, house red wine, filet mignon gnocchi (special), surf and turf, shrimp mozambique, BarCa seafood, tiramisu, flan, and rice pudding. Been to Portuguese restaurants in Tiverton, RI and New Bedford. BarCa is hands down the best!

We had 2 small children with us and serving of the food was way too slow. We had 2 meals with allergy issues but it was still too long.

Well I made these reservations 2 months ago in anticipationof Mother’s Day. I never got any message stating that these reservations were not valid and I even got a confirmation email the day prior confirming my reservations for Mother’s Day at 1pm. I showed up and was told they were not taking open table reservations today. I showed the host my email and he said he would try to seat as soon as he could but wasn’t going to honor it. I walked away and waited. My husband wasn’t accepting and told him he had to seat us and they did after 15 minutes and multiple inquiries and my husband being very upset about the mistake made and no one trying to rectifying it and hoping we would just wait.
