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.

    I the past I could get a steak at BJ's and enjoy it. Last night I ordered a Rib Eye medium rare. The first one came over cooked. They tried to get me a second steak that was even more cooked. They got a third steak that was two things: 1. Way undercooked (Rare) and 2. It had a lot of fat and gristle. As they tried to cook me an acceptable steak, they tried to serve me two additional salads:) The waiters were nice and tried to correct the problems. They said a manager would be over. We sat for a while, but the Manager never came over. We got up and left. They did credit my steak purchase. The Manager did try and call me, but I did not get her call and do not plan to return her call.

    Does anyone else think that ever since Covid the quality of restaurants have deteriorated? You would think that with less customers, businesses would have a greater opportunity to focus attention on service. This visit to BJ's (one of my favorite restaurants) was horrible - same place, same atmosphere (all good) and the service was ok (waitress did a nice job - no complaints), but the food - oy vey! The deep dish pizza was 90% bread and only a thin layer of toppings, the chicken wings were more like McNuggets (more than half was hush puppy-type breading), and the onion rings tasted fishy - literally, as though they were fried in the same oil as their fish. The manager was nice about it and compensated us for it but its really disappointing to see one of my favorite activities (eating out) plummet to such depths of disappointment. Based on my most recent visit, I cannot recommend this restaurant.

    The food wasn't that great only thing that I did like was that I could talk to people and here them because the restaurant was pretty quite. The last thing that was going for them is there alcohol, which is better than there good all together... would go there for a drinks again but not food.

    We arrived and was seated right away. Took 40 minutes to get food and the place was not busy. When food finally came 4 out of 5 meals were cold. Rhe only saving grace was the waitress made sure our drinks were always filled.

    Love the restaurant always have, food was great and loved the quiet. I do not like noisy restaurants that you cannot carry on a conversation because of the noise. I know this is a hard and challenging time for everyone especially restaurants, but being able to hold a conversation and hear the responses without yelling makes it feel like home. We will be back soon. Just praying they do not shut down the economy again. If folks would just wear their mask our cases would go down.

    Love BJ's but last night wait staff was not even the "B" team. I have never had such bad at BJ's. We hot seated and just sat. 3 other tables got seated after us, got their drinks and ordered food one even got their appitiser before our server came to the table. She never refilled our drinks and half of our service came from other wait staff that saw we were not getting the service BJ's is known for.

    The waiter got two drink orders wrong and then was rude when we asked him to bring the correct drinks. He did not know the difference between a Cabernet and a Chardonnay. When I told him that Chardonnay is a white wine, he said he would bring me a Pinot Grigio. When I clarified that I wanted a Chardonnay, he got angry. My husband ordered a Tanqueray martini. The waiter stormed off and brought a well drink gin. At this point we gave up. Steaks were tough. Needless to say we won't go back.

    Nothing was good. Burger was overcooked, kids meals were gross (my kids said the mac & cheese was gross and usually that is their favorite), drink tasted bad. :( Disappointing for a $100+ meal for two adults and two kids.

    We hadn’t been to BJ’s for awhile, but it was as good as we remembered it. They have a great beer selection, including my favorite Jeremiah Red. The food is good, but even though it wasn’t crowded, my husband’s salad came out with cheese even though he specifically asked no cheese. The waitress blamed it on the kitchen, but since they don’t write the order down, I have my doubts.

    I love BJ's, I unfortunately decided to go on prom night and it was crazy and the staff was stretched too thin. Over all my waiter, Andrew was great, even though I was hangry and snapped, he got my food out as quickly as he could. I really like this location and would recommend any other night.

    It did not seem that there was a point to make a reservation. Once we arrived, we had to wait additional time for a table and the table itself was not even flat. Also, do not order the ribs, they were extremely tough and not a lot of meat. However, the calamari is delicious, along with the tacos, salmon, and tomato soup!

    I had made a reservation through opentable. I had called to inform the restaurant I was going to be about 30 minutes late and the gentleman over the phone was very nice and made sure that my slight change of plans would be accommodated for. I showed up and was greeted with a smile by the hostess, who made sure to seat us right away. The food was good, I usually get a pizza but ventured out to the Deep Dish Ziti and it was A1! Our waiter was very kind and checked up on us regularly and made sure we had the condiments needed for our side dishes. I will be coming back for another date night!

    Service was slow and it wasn’t crowded. When food arrived, they brought a dish that wasn’t ordered but didn’t bring one of the entrees. My husband ordered a Bison burger w Swiss cheese and mayo/ketchup. It came with American cheese and house sauce which was too spicy for my husbands liking. He sent it back... the other entree still didn’t arrive. Finally the other entree arrived and the waitress came back ten minutes later to say they were out of bison burgers. I will say that they comped our dessert which was delicious and discounted our meal but the birthday celebration definitely had a damper on it. The food that we did get was good. If we lived here we would probably give it another chance. Everyone had a bad night.
