Ok for mall food

I have been here several times with my grandson. While the portions are large, the food is nothing to write home about. The lettuce wraps are good and they do a pretty good job with the thin fries. The service could be better. I will probably go back as my grandson likes the waitresses, but... read more

Like other reviews i must agree that this place is just a fancy joint that serves pub food. Average at best!

Arrived in town early evening and thought we would drop by for dinner after a full day of travel. My boss and I and our wives were all quite hungry and wanted something quick and familiar. Having been to other BJ's locations in other parts of the country, this one seemed to fit the bill. The service was quite prompt... More

Given the size of the menu, I was pleasantly surprised by the flavorful dishes. I had a Cesar salad with blackened salmon and my husband had mahi mahi. Both were very tasty and affordable!

We love Bj's but the service is kind of hit and miss. On Saturday night we had to wait 5 minutes to get silverware after or meal was delivered and we waited what seemed like 20 minutes to get our drinks. We finally flagged down a different waitress who got us our silverware instantly. Been to other Bj's and have... More

Some tips to eating at BJS would be to carry their call ahead number in your cell phone. When shopping at the mall and you suddenly decide to go eat at BJS, give them a call and place your name on the wait list. Then mosey on over and you will get seated before those who walked in ahead of... More

While the food was good we had a couple of problems with the server. She was nice but slow to respond. It was a Friday night so I get that it was busy but we had to wait too long between visits. The bigger issue as a Celiac patient was when I asked if the particular tacos i ordered were... More

I generally try to find local restaurants to eat at when I'm traveling. However, it was the end of a long day, saw BJ's, had eaten at other locations plenty of times and figured why not. I ordered the salmon and it was horrible. It was undercooked and over-seasoned. I order it blackened but apparently blackened meant rubbed repeatedly in... More
