The Standard never disappoints. The veal chop is amazing. The peach and burrata salad was exceptional. Everyone loved their dinners.

The only negative is that I live three hours away! This place was amazing from start to finish. Very friendly staff, food was perfect, and to top it all off they went above and beyond for a birthday gift and gave me a piece of glass art from a local artist. I can’t wait for the next time I visit the area so that I can come back here again!!

A harmony of wine, food, and ambiance. Chef Erin McCartt and Winemaker Jen McAlear have created a magic experience. Come try lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch with a wine flight, glass of wine, or bottle. Check out our events, live music, large patio, and private banquet space!

Love this place! Sangria flights are fabulous. Food was very good— Margherita Flatbread is so delicious with its balsamic glaze. Service was good and our server was very attentive. The patio was perfect tonight . Not too hot, with a great breeze. My only recommendation would be to have smaller glasses for the sangria flights. They were HUGE glasses with only a 2 oz. pour. This is my second visit and it was just as good this year!!

Wait staff was wonderful -- courteous and efficient. Onion soup was bland, not rich, but nice size. Salad was small and unimpressive for the price. Strip steak was nice size, cooked perfectly and tender. Asparagus was good, not much of it. Very disappointed there was no filet mignon offered, though shown online. Will give this place another chance, but not for awhile.

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.

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.

Our waiter was attentive. The food and wine was spot on as usual. I said noise level was high only due to the fact there were a few large groups seated, it wasn't unbearable.
