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.

My husband and I went for Veterans Day and everything was top notch from all the staff. I even dumped a cup of lemonade and they were on it cleaning it up.

Food was terrible. I've been there twice before and it was always excellent. Last night was unbelievably bad. Sub was bad, fish was cold, can't remember the other dish but that was bad also.

I really like the look and feel of the restaurant. One of my favorites. Anywhere. We always visit when I see my daughter at nearby CNU. Love the menu too. This was perhaps the least enjoyable experience we’ve had though. Execution off a bit on the food. Drink service quite slow. Apparently there was an issue with silverware. Not expecting plastic utensils at a place where I spend $100+ on dinner for three. And prices seemed to have jumped. $21+ for a half rack of ribs? May be due to rising pork prices or restaurant trying to make up for losses during the pandemic.

Service was a little slow and some of the food items were not hot when they were brought to the table after a considerable wait. Wait staff was very pleasant and corrected issues without difficulty. Maybe under-staffing or kitchen issue, don't know.

Really nice looking restaurant. They have an excellent menu with many great selections (it made it hard to decide). My daughter enjoyed the ribs and I went with the lower cal bison burger. Both were great. We especially liked the excellent selection of good side options. They have a spectacular looking bar, and the beer selection was all any beer lover could ask for. The service was super friendly and helpful, and the virtual check/bill pay process was great. Quick and, during this pandemic, the reduced contact of the transaction was much appreciated.

Thankful for Veteran’s Day recognition. In these social distancing times, we were seated in main thoroughfare. SanteFe salads were not as good as before. Most likely due to shortened staff. Fully understand the situation.

Had a great time with exception of the large group of takeout dinner guests surrounding our table...a few close enough to be sitting next to us. COVID or not it was wrong. We moved to another table after talking to management. Then they lined them along all the patrons sitting at tables including ours. I will not be returning. Poor management and people with no sense.

Fun place to get good food and enjoy watching the games. Good selection of their own craft beer, as well as others. My wife loves the Mediterranean Chicken Pita Taco with Quinoa. I had the BBQ Sliders and the Gold Medal Beer Flight. Service was very good. We were even offered some beer samples to try. Might have to save room next time for the Pizookies, they looked delicious.

Everything is great as usual the only reason I did not give five stars on the food was because the roasted asparagus was not what I expected. It was very thin and hard to eat.
