Our server needed a lot of training

We visited at 8pm so the dinner crowd was light. They no longer offer thin crust pizza (only pan style) so when we requested it nothing was said and we were disappointed when our food arrived. Our waiter disappeared and we had to flag down other employees. It was obvious they weren't busy when we... read more

Great beer, good service. Some of the best French fries I've ever had. The pizza was really good as well. Went twice, once with s group of 20 and the staff handled it really well. The Amber beer and berry cider were fantastic.

Four of us visited BJ's on a Wednesday evening. We were seated in a nice roomy booth and our server, Ashley S., was friendly, courteous and accommodating. They do have large screen TVs around the place, but they are not overwhelming and do not interfere with conversation. Our drinks (wine for my wife and a cocktail for me) were brought... More

Here's the deal. I LOVE BJ's...in Escondido. I was so excited to come to this location and spend my hard earned money, boy was I disappointed. I ordered the buffalo burger which was described as being served with coleslaw and fries. The burger was over-cooked, bland, and greasy. There were no fries on my plate. The "coleslaw" was actually just... More

We ate at this restaurant after 9 pm. It was nice to find a warm, comfortable, place to have a meal. The staff was friendly and the food and drinks were brought quickly and we enjoyed our time there.

I usually enjoy BJ's any time I go but I was very disappointed this time. My husband ordered the sirloin and mashed potatoes but they served him a baked potatoe which he had difficulty eating because he has limited eye sight. I ordered the Mahi Mahi light meal and although it sat on a bed of rice which was very... More

This is the second time we have been to this specific BJs restaurant in 2 months with bad service. We really enjoy the food, the deep dish pizzas, the special salads (and they carry my favorite soda Mtn. Dew). However for the second time in a row the service has been very poor. We are served after those around us... More

10 minute walk from our hotel and the wait was less than 5 minutes. Service was good and kids had a good time!
