great pizza, salads, brews, etc.

Overall, a good place for pizza, salads, and microbrews. Service is pretty good, kind of a sports bar atmosphere and gets pretty noisy even a major game is not on one of the big screen TVs behind the bar.

Saw this as a 'near me now' place on TripAdvisor and although there were mixed reviews, I looked at the menu and decided to give it a go. We had a short wait for a table (party of 5 for a Saturday night at 7.30, so expected a wait) The menu was huge, pages and pages of both food and... More

Tried the new salmon and quinoa, pretty good. Lunch portion was enough for dinner. Server in a hurry to get our order and go; perhaps assigned too many tables. Rock music a bit annoying loud. Otherwise nice atmosphere and lighting.

Stopped into BJ's for dinner while on our family road trip. Food was good, pretty average. Service as expected. Prices always seem a little high but BJ's is always reliable.

I love clam-chowder. Though BJ's is not the best I have tried, it is close, third best from over 25 different restaurants. An excellent selection of beers; Jeremiah Red my favorite. And there there is desert, the wonderful chocolate chip Pizookie. Some BJ restaurants brew their own beer, and this Oxnard location is one of them. I have been to... More

BJ's is close to home and great for happy hour after golf, or dinner with friends and family. Also good for delivery if I don't want to cook! Extensive menu, so something to please everyone. Food is consistently good, but service is generally lacking.....

We keep trying and keep being disappointed. It's just too much spent for slow, inaccurate, negligent service. We'll eventually learn...
