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

So many options, not just pizza and beer. I love their newer light menu option. Their chicken pitas and salmon are yummy and lower calorie. I also like their berry cider.

We were in the area for the first time and we drove around the area looking for a restaurant. We spotted this restaurant from the highway. It is situated in a Shopping Mall setting. It was packed and we told it would be 45 minutes. Since we were exhausted and hungry, we waited. After 10 minutes waiting, we were called... More

After many positive experiences at this franchise nationwide, this location was disastrous. Though it was a late night between airport experience, we would have been better off eating at the airport! We started off with my wife receiving a beer bath from our nonchalant waitress which was followed by the delivery of cold food and missing side orders. The Manager... More

After a day of driving around San Francisco, my son and I decided to stop at BJ's for a beer. We had been at BJ's in Folsum earlier during our trip and loved it. We figured we would experience the same here in Tanforan but it wasn't even close! We sat there for 15 minutes and no server even acknowledged... More
