Have visited here on each of our last holidays to Carlsbad. Extremely popular but this can mean up to a half hour wait for a table. However, the food is worth waiting for and the staff exceptionally nice and attentive.

It's close so I go every couple of weeks. Today I tried the new enlightened Cherry Chipotle Glazed Salmon. Wow, what a lunch. Under the salmon (I'll get back to that) was Israeli Couscous with spinach, tomatoes and peppers and grilled asparagus. Well seasoned and very tasty. The salmon was a nice fillet with a cherry chipotle glaze. Perfectly cooked.... More

We were able to do a beer sampler. Liked some of them (but that is subjective). We both had deep dish pizzas and they were good. We were not up for dessert but they looked very good. I did not like that they made us wait even though when they seated us there were plenty of empty tables.

We love this place! Good beer, delicous food and nice people. Will always go back when in Carlsbad. Plus it is close to the Carlsbad mall.

Awesome bison burger! I requested rare, and they got it right. Service was attentive, and the pizzookies were amazing. I definitely recommend it and will go back next time I'm in the area!

EXCELLENT meal!!! Very retro '50's/'60's style restaurant with very friendly and knowledgeable staff. We were entertained as well as fed on this visit. The food is extremely good!

Lets start by saying that it is one of the very few restaurant open late (12:00) on a Sunday night. After spending all day at Legoland and finally getting ready for a peaceful dinner it is nice not to feel rushed. I love their many healthy choices, so if you are watching your calories and do not want to pig... More

It took forever for us to get average, salty and greasy food. The staff was very nice and kept checking in on us but we had to wait a long time for our order.

Despite the "brewhouse" tag, BJ's is a reasonable place to take the kids for dinner. The range of craft beers keeps Dad happy too! Ordered the Mahi-Mahi which had no seasoning at all - I guess it was relying on the rest of the plate. It's advertised as coming with a ginger sauce (or words to that effect) but I... More

Great location, next to the outlets. Very busy, so not fast service, had a wait for many simple things such as water and refills, cream for coffee, ketchup and so on. So our meal was somewhat staggered but great tasting food.
