Located in the heart of downtown Laguna Beach, you'd expect this place to be better than it is. The pizza is decent, but the place has an old, dull feel to it. They do a good business on weekend nights and during the summer. I think it's mostly popular with tourists. If you want a fun Laguna experience, try someplace... More

BJ's is a chain of moderately priced fare of great selections. The Laguna Beach location I stellar (on PCH with a GREAT view of Main Beach). Dining room is small, so be prepared, in Summer, for lengthy waits. Attention to the customer experience and satisfaction is high.

We weren't sure about this place, but it came recommended so we gave it a try. We're happy we did. A marvelous, attentive waiter and really outstanding salads and entres made it one of our better dining experiences in S. California.

We love the coziness of this BJ's! This was the first place my husband and I ate at when we took our kids to Laguna 10 years ago, and it never fails to disappoint! My husband and I ate here when we last visited Laguna in August 2014 and we loved the ice cold salad and beer.

Staff was friendly, salads had really fresh vegs. Soups flavorful and pizza crust and toppings great. Way better quality and diversity than you see in most franchise operations.

I've been a big fan of the BJ's Restaurant chain for a long time. This was our first time visiting this particular store. It's SUPER SMALL!!! The staff all seemed nice enough. The food was good. The beer was better! Our order didn't come out correctly and our server noticed right away. She immediately offered to take it back and... More

came here with my wife for an evening meal. Beer selection is great. Good selection typical of this type of place. Wholesome and edible not fancy but will fill you up. The place itself is nothing special. Clean and tidy. Not rushed service which was nice .

I have been here 3 times and every time I go I regret. I am done with this restaurant. It has a very poor service. The food is not good either.

Food is vanilla at best, but the main attraction is beer, & they have a fun selection for the sud-seeker.
