It is a busy bar and very noisy. A good variety on the menu but all pretty average dishes. The chicken dish I ordered was OK but the meat was very dry and didn't taste particularly fresh. The service was very slow. Our food was brought to us in an acceptable time but then we had to wait a while... More

Have been to this chain in Tampa GL. Love their food and beer selection! Kale and roasted Brussels sprout salad was delicious and prices are reasonable, especially for San Fran area!

Place is busy but all in all service is slow. Were told some beers not available because of tap issue and excessive foam. Very noisy and staff congregate near end of bar. Food was well prepared and presentation good. Drinks were well made. Lots of out of control kids running. Guess this is a result of mall traffic or parents... More

BJ's is your typical brewhouse-cum-sports bar which serves hearty dishes alongside beer and such. Food is delicious, portions are filling, and the prices, reasonable. A little noisy but popular with office buddies for after-work get-togethers, couples, and families for celebrations. There's browsing opportunities as well at Barnes and Noble while waiting for a table. We go back every so often.

May TVs lining the walls always have some sports event on and the bar has 10 large flat screens going up the high ceiling. Seating available is self serve in the bar area - main floor booths are managed by host. Salads are good and they can do some substitutions. Since this restaurant is in a shopping mall it is...

Plenty of mall parking. Can be a long wait. Large capacity. Varied menu, although they just recently shrank it a bit. Lunch and dinner are best meals. Specialties = pizza, appetizers, & desserts. Has soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches, pastas, lite entrees, full entrees. Comfortable seating, but when crowded or a large group, they try to cram more chairs in. RRs... More

Near SFO. Took our grandkids the night before we were to fly out the next day. The burgers were large, tasty, juicy and moderately priced. Only issue was waiting for a table on a Monday evening just after 6 PM. We ended grabbing a table in the bar. The food was worth it, The service very good and fast once... More

Although BJs Restaurant has TVs above the bar to stay current on your favorite games, there is also a variety of quality dishes to choose from. This menu includes choices for everyone. You have your choice of burgers, pizzas, tacos and Surf & Turf. There is also a full bar and draught beer available for you by the Pint, or... More

wanting a late night dinner I ventured to this brewhouse and restaurant last Saturday at 10 pm - the place was packed - and yet we were seated promptly, received attentive service and had very good chow (this is what TGI USED to be). Tasty deep dish pizza and a highly recommended berry berry margarita was just what the doctor... More
