Just right

We had a great lunch here. The deep dish lasagna was cheesy with just the right amount of spice; we enjoyed the sweetness of the tomato past sauce. We also enjoyed a small ham pizza which was reply good. The service was great, the atmosphere was perfect for lunchtime, and we would go here again.

Lovely coastal weather in the shade on outdoor patio. Casual conversation with a friend not having to shout to be heard. Patio removed far enough from busy roadway to not be disturbed by sights and sounds of traffic. Food spectacular! Prices reasonable. Vast variety on menu. Food prepared visually with a flare. Waiter service awesome!

They have a micro-brewery with several choices. Menu has a large selection, something for everybody. In our group ordered flat bread pizza and sald said to be very good. I order deluxe burger which was fine. My wife ordered shrimp scampi which was mildly disappointing. Probably would go back.

Very extensive menu with a wide variety of choices, makes BJ's a great place for a family meal. There is something for everyone, but you have to top it off with a Piezookie (a hot freshly baked cookie with ice cream on top). I recommend the Piezookie Trio, you get three different kinds of cookies each with ice cream.

Really enjoyed this restaurant. Came for a late lunch. I had one of the light fare chicken dishes and it was awesome. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich and really enjoyed it. Service was good.

Great bison burger! I requested medium rare, and I got it. Service was good, and the place was clean. They have good choice of beer and a good menu with good choices. I definitely recommend it and will go back next time I'm in the area!

Ate here for a business lunch. Initially we wanted a table outside but it did not work out so we were seated inside. After a table opened up outside our server was great in getting us moved. The service was great and food excellent. For being as crowded and busy as they were we got our meals quickly. The onsite... More

Usually BJs is beyond 5 stars for the quality of our meals but this location's food wasn't as good as the other 6 or 7 locations we have tried in numerous California areas. Service was fantastic though.

The food is good here, but it always takes FOREVER to get it. It's fine if you aren't in a rush or already starving when you arrive. Going during a work lunch hour is not a good idea. Otherwise, good

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 saw several staff members chatting... More
