Unfortunately, kitchen staff walked out after our order. Over an hour to get our food, which was prepared incorrectly. Offered free dessert, but still charged for badly prepped food.

My tri tips were over cooked and my husband’s fish was soggy on the bottom. The waiter replaced my tri tips with baby back ribs. I was upcharged for the ribs even though it was the cooks fault.

I had reservations. The person came over a drink waitress, I think she should ask if we would like appraisers, and taking our main order took longer than I expected.

BJ's menu offers a broad variety of tasty eats, including a number of speciality dishes and drinks. Food is well prepared and attractively presented. Service is attentive and promptly responds to requests. BJ's ambiance is conducive to an enjoyable meal with friends. Be sure to finish up with one of their delicious pizookies, and don't forget to pickup some of their yummy $6 Take-Home Entrees. Thanks to BJ's for honoring Veterans on Veterans Day.

I came here for date night and had a great time. I’ve eaten here about 4-5 times and each time the atmosphere was great, staff was friendly and food was delicious. It’s a bit pricey but no more than other restaurants like it. I strongly recommend BJ’s.

Prime rib dinner was very good, generous portions and tasty. Bison burger also good- don't order the Ahi tuna salad- the tuna seemed low grade- it was a little tough although cooked properly, and the salad flavors were unbalanced. The monkey bread/ ice cream dessert easily served 4 and the plate was scraped clean!!

They have increased there prices significantly since the last time visiting. We enjoyed the service but won't be back due to pricing. An Entree Salad with 3 chicken fingers on it was $14.95, Small side of Brussel Sprouts $7.45, and a house well drink $8.25 a piece.

As always, the weekend prime rib special was outstanding. We had a new server, and he definitely needed some additional training. He had problems figuring out how to place our order and overcharged us because he didn’t know what was included in the prime rib special. A manager solved our problem, but we ended up spending about 15 minutes just waiting to get the final bill.

Bj's is one of our favorite places to go for a nice time. The food is pretty good, service sometimes can be on the slow side, but the plates are really worth the wait. It seems to get very busy so best to book a table beforehand through this Opentable application.
We recommend, every time we have been there, we have had a great time.

The waitress we had wasn’t very pleasant and she didn’t seem very friendly. I had asked for water with lemon and I got regular water and she came to pour water in my glass with a plastic cup when every other time I’ve gone to this BJs they’ve always had a pitcher of water. My husband and brother in law thought she was fine but the way she came off to me wasn’t the most friendly. Everyone has bad days and I guess last night was one her bad days. She could learn to be a little friendlier to her customers. I would recommend this restaurant just not that waitress

Service was ok, waitress although very friendly was stretched out. Both ladies at my table ordered tri tip medium and both came out well done.
All food came out cool as it sat it the back for a while. Food had good flavor and meat was tender.

1. Made reservation but when we arrived they just “checked us in” and put us in line with everybody there so that resulted in us waiting 45 min for a table
2. Got to table, no waitress and nobody knew where they were. Eventually, bartender took our table and though she clearly tried her best and appeared to be a great waitress, she was over stretched and therefore couldn’t provide appropriate service.
3. Ordered apps and mains, one main course came out shortly after (before apps). When noted (thought maybe they brought it to wrong table, no way was it fresh) we were told they could put it under the heater till we had our apps and the other mains came out. So eat your main now alone or we will serve you it again after it has been sitting under a heater for 30 min….. ??
4. Put a note on open table that it was my daughters birthday and mentioned it to the waiter and thought it would have been acknowledged when we ordered deserts but it was not.

Furthermore, staff in general especially the front door host seemed completely uncaring. When l asked, after waiting 20 min when our table may be ready l was told “When the table we want to give you comes available, there is a party at that table”. OK….any idea when they are gonna be done, have they just sat down, checking out? She was just like l don’t know and then looked away which implied to me the conversation was over…..

Extremely disappointing and frustrating evening, especially cause it’s was my daughters birthday and we had to try and keep spirits high and not get frustrated for her.

I love this restaurant and come here often with my family but last night I went with just my friend and I told the waitress to put the sides out first and unfortunately it came with my dinner I felt overwhelmed with the food all at once. Overall love this restaurant the food was wonderful but just wish I didn’t have some much at the same time. Highly recommend otherwise

Poor service. Table of 6. Ordered a couple of beers & 2 appetizers to start. Didn’t get our beers until a Server( not our waiter) brought the appetizers out , placed them on table & left..no plates, no flatware. Waited for our waiter to return with plates and asked him for our beers also. By the time he stopped to check on us & we asked for plates, food was already cold. I Ordered bison burger with Swiss cheese & mushrooms...NO dressing & a side of fries. Came out with no cheese & 2 small mushroom slices that we had to search for and a side salad, no fries.. Also had some spicy sauce. Could not eat it. Waited &!waited for him to return. When he finally did, he Offered to take it back & get another one but everyone else had almost finished eating ...so I said “ no thanks”. Also, my daughter ended up sharing 1/2 her sandwich with me. Disappointed that they did not at least credit my burger off the bill since I didn’t eat it. At least the my daughter’s Pizookie was a hit.

We could only take a party of 6 for son's birthday. Luckily, that covered the immediate family. Was a nice, intimate gathering that otherwise in the current environment would not have been possible. Looking forward to the day when it is safe to have WHOLE family come out for events.

This location used to be spot on. However the last two visits have shown a decline in food quality, both temperature and taste. The wait staff advised they are short cooks and the manager was having to cook. I like the location and the menu, so I hope they turn around fast or I will scratch them off my go to list. Also, if you are trying to redeem dinning rewards points there, DON'T. They will not key in the card number and the mangers refused to look at and call the number on the card.

Food was average, my daughter had the Philly cheesesteak, son in law had boneless chicken nuggets and I the spaghetti and meatballs. Mine was average, the Philly cheesesteak was good the boneless nuggets were mostly breading with minimal chicken, really bad! Nothing special here and prices seem to lean to the higher end!! Most definitely not worth the price!

My wife and I always enjoy BJ’s. The food is delicious and our waitress, Tangela, was courteous and quick. The clear plastic booth-dividers are new since our last visit, and they actually helped reduce noise levels. Frankly, I would be happy if you keep those guards ups after the Pandemic is finished.
