Hard to beat the soup and salad lunch

My husband and I have found that BJ's is a great place for a quick, healthy, tasty and reasonable lunch. On a recent stop at the Carlsbad outlet center, we decided to taker a break and enjoy our favorite BJ's lunch. We started with the Tomato and Mozzarella Salad and the Clam Chowder. Then we... read more

Have been to other BJ's locations so knew what to expect. We were with friends and were seated promptly. Service was disappointing as it seemed as though our server disappeared for extended periods of time. We had the top sirloin and the shrimp & asparagas pasta and both were quite good. However, the meals arrived at our table at separate... More

We enjoy BJ'S from Orlando to Houston and now Carlsbad. We like to try local restaurants when traveling, but there are times when we just crave an 'old favorite'. The lunch crowd today filled the parking lot, but we were seated in a requested booth immediately. Our server was extremely prompt and friendly. The cheddar burger my wife had was... More

It was Saturday night, January 23rd, and we invited friends up and BJ's is a great place to go! It was packed; but, I know BJ's and that the bar area is open setting. We found a table and made ourselves comfortable! Great service and food and the drinks were perfect!

It was raining very hard on this January day and after trying 3 other places (some closed for winter/rain/storm) we ended up here. The atmosphere is clean and classy and the service very good. I had the burger and my companion had the fish and chips. We each loved our selection. The weather was dreary and drenching rain, so we... More

We love this restaurant when we want to include the kids; they have great comfort food and drinks, try the bloody mary, and are always so nice with the children, giving them crayons and games to occupy them, with a patient and good-humored wait staff. Good choice of beer and fun glasses to buy and collect.
