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.

They are still socially distancing for diners which we appreciate. Server was great! Tried a margarita flight which was delicious. At end of meal our server presented my husband with a Father’s Day beer glass. He was thrilled

Food and service was very good. We were having a family luncheon, 1st one since the pandemic and we were comfortable and not rushed by staff to leave as soon as we finished eating. It was a very good dining experience.

Our server was accommodating - the problem was the clam chowder and caesar salad came out immediately with the two orders of pork chops. The rest of us (4) sat with nothing for about 15-20 minutes. When they brought out our food one persons food was cold. They comped a bowl of clam chowder until they fixed a new one which she was eating while the rest of us sat and watched. They didn't ask if we wanted dessert until we were finished (one was for a birthday and the other came with the ribs). Knowing we were going to be getting these the waitress should have inquired much earlier so they could be ready shortly after we finished. Since she didn't we had to wait another 20 minutes. We ended up being there 2 1/2 hours and being Senior Citizens we don't enjoy sitting and waiting as the majority of the group are not drinkers.

Birthday! Service was an afterthought. Server disappeared after taking our drink order for close to 45 minutes had to flag down a other server to get our order in. Our reservation was at 8:30 PM we were hungry and we’re not expecting to stay out as late as we did as a result to negligence of the server.

Food was fair at best. Server was very nice but had too many tables and wasn’t getting help. Manager walked around but wasn’t actually interested in how diners were doing.

Food was good and the service was great except that our appetizer came after our food and we ordered the appetizer about 10 minutes earlier. Also, $14 for egg rolls was a bit steep.

Way over-booked... told us we'd have to wait awhile for our table as they were busy and could not honor our reservation time. We left and won't return.

Very disappointing based on past experiences. Portions were really reduced while prices spiked. I know we are in hard times but my $14 BBQ bison burger almost disappeared in its empty plain bun with nothing on it. Had to waive down staff to fill drinks, mustard, and check. Very inattentive to us even with few people. Would have tipped much more to help everyone but horrible service. No gloves when he handled my drinks and plate. Table was not clean. BJ's can do better and I will be happy to return. Just give me enough food to match the price increase please. Too crowded at exit and could not distance to exit. Felt very uncomfortable. Work on things BJ and community will be glad to help you out.

This is a great place for a nice dinner. The prices are very reasonable, especially if you split an entree, which is easy to do. And the desserts are killers!

I ordered a margarita which I have had many times here. It arrived in a tall glass and was orange. I took a sip and called our waitress over. I told her it had orange juice in it which didn't belong. She left and came back shortly to say the bartender says he always puts OJ in margaritas. NO YOU DON'T. That was all you could taste. No tequila and no sour.
They did not offer to make a new one or take it off the bill.
I am not hurrying back.

We like the “social distancing”. They had every other table shut down so it was comfortable, not crowded, and the reduced number of tables in use really cut down on the noise level. They tried to have you use your phone for ordering and payment, but when we told the server we were technology challenged, he gave us paper menus and a regular check! LOL

My rib-eye steak was full of gristle. I couldn't even cut it with the carving knife. They had no baked potatoes at 5PM. We were left without a waiter almost the entire period. At least they didn't charge me for the steak.

Our meals were excellent. Service was the worst we have ever experienced in BJ’s. We both ordered simple
meals and were there 1.5+ hours for a quick bite to eat.It was busy but BJ’s is always busy. All of the tables around us were served in a timely manner. It was our waitress that was inattentive. We finally asked to see a manager. She delivered desert. She didn’t identify herself as the manager until we asked. She said it was a busy night and the waitress was behind. She just didn’t get it!
