Loud at Lunch Good Food

BJ's gets very busy during the lunch hour. They were full when we arrived at noon, but were able to seat us. The food was good, but it was hard to hear over the noise.

My husband and I met our daughter here for lunch as it was the half way point for both of us. We first ordered the Calamari which I was dying to have as I love it, but I did not enjoy this one. They were kind of mushy and the breading was coming off. I have had much much better.... More

We needed a place for a family lunch and they were able to handle our group of 18 without a problem. Everyone had something different and everything came out together. Pizza, salad, sandwiches were all very good. Best part was our server Sarah M, she was amazing. You could tell she is a real pro and really wants to make... More

From the moment we walked in the helpers at the front counter were talking to each other and we were not acknowledged… Rather than sit in the dining room we went to the bar where we could figure out our own seating arrangement… In that area the treatment was the same. I generally like BJ's a lot… The food was... More

I've been to this restaurant before but this is the best meal I have had. It was the lunch portion of Hawaiian MahiMahi over pineapple rice and was only 460 calories. This allowed me to indulge in the delicious mozzarella sticks and the decadent pizoukis (?) which is a warm chocolate chip cookie topped with various sauces and ice cream.... More

We got there by 11:30 and they were very accommodating to the 2 elderly ladies and gave us a nice booth with a couple of outside chairs and away from the crowds, these places get very noisy but we were able to visit without shouting! Service was good and the food was too. I split sliders and a salad with... More

All dishes are tasty and they brew their own beers in verity of flavors which you can have a sample of all in small glasses to find out which flavor is your best choice. Very modern interior design with nice bar and friendly staff.

A friend said that the Pan Pizza was worth the trip. Definitely not, very dry, overcooked and tasteless. Nice atmosphere, but nothing like real Chicago Pan Pizza.

The food is decent but again it is the inconsistency of the servers that reduces it's rating. The restaurant is noisy, but it's more like a sports bar anyway. So be ready for all the TV's and games, which is fine with me.

We have visited BJ's many times and have always had a good experience. The restaurant has a good atmosphere, but can be a bit noisy. The menu contains a good range of interesting appetizers. Entrees include pizzas, salads, burgers, sandwiches, tacos, steaks and ribs. They also brew their own beers with about 15 different brews plus seasonal brews. On our... More
