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.

My family and I had dinner at BJ's after a day at Legoland. We arrive about 8:30pm and were seating right away on the patio. It took our food 45 minutes to arrive! When the food did arrive, it was brought plate by plate with intervals up to 5 minutes in between the plates. My husband enjoyed his Parmesan Chicken,... More

Our party of 6 went to BJ's for dinner last Saturday night. It was near our hotel, and we were familiar with the menu since there is a BJs in our hometown. This location was even better than the one we typically visit! Everyone in our party loved their meals. We ordered a wide variety of meals - steak, Atlantic... More

This restaurant was located close to our hotel so we decided to give it a go! We both ordered steak (both cooked to perfection and tasted amazing) it came with a baked potato and veggies. The drinks were good, bar area was trendy, customer service was pretty good (I feel it was pretty mainstream, usually you have pretty good customer... More

Had the buffalo chicken deep dish pizza... More

We ate at BJ's Brewhouse in May during our trip to Legoland. After a day of roller coasters and lots of walking, we had worked up an appetite. This particular BJ's is not far from Legoland. We did not have to wait long, and had an excellent server: not pushy, and brought food out quickly as we were with our... More
