Stopped in on a Saturday night. Did not seem overly busy. Front staff was slow and didn't seem to have a clue where to seat us. Service was average. I had spaghetti and meatballs. Meatballs minded me of the grilled cheese sandwich that looks perfect on top until you turn it over and it is burned... read more

Normally, I am told that BJ's usually has good food, good service and is the place to go. Not this time. We got there and were taken right back to a table. That was the last time that we saw a server for the next 20 to 30 minutes. We had just picked up our grandson from a week of... More

Sat in my car for 15 minutes on the phone as I was placed on hold to make a take out order. I was able to hear all the people talking and joking at the register and I kept yelling into the phone for someone to pick up the handset and take my order. Finally I walked in from my... More

We just wanted a snack and a drink. Stopped in BJ's and was very impressed with the atmosphere. We sat at a high top by the bar. Watched the Giants on a nice flat screen. Ordered a couple margaritas that were pretty good. A little too sweet for my taste. Next time I will just order a double. We ordered... More

The high school graduate in our family chose BJ's for her lunch post-graduation. This is a chain restaurant, so my expectations weren't too high. I had a mini pizza (thick crust) which was good, but nothing

Had drinks, appetizer and dinner last night at BJ's and the food was okay but the service very poor. It started out fine but once our waiter went on break he never came back to our area. Not sure what happened but service dropped off and ordered items didn't arrive in a timely manner. We were ready to leave and... More

I understnad that BJ's is known for their pizza. But when I went there I tried more of their american favorites. With good food and friendly service. I would go back. It is also good for people who are wanting to use the literail to go from there to anywhere else in the area. The fact that they had a... More

Maybe I had my expectations too high. Maybe it is too much to expect that a restaurant in California knows how to make a Chicago style deep dish pizza. But when I see a menu item that says Chicago Style Deep Dish, I expect it to be true; unfortunately, it wasn't. BJ's idea of a Chicago style pizza is just... More

Started well with friendly service and the waitress, Tash, was good. Then it went downhill. Ordered medium sirloin with roasted sprouts and horseradish mash. Meat arrived cremated and the sprouts were awful. Spoke to waitress who discussed with the kitchen. Apparently this is the recipe they use! Suggest they change it very quickly!!! Overall not impressed and will in future... More

No, really. BJ's has a drink called a "drink like that" that you have to try if you haven't. That, plus great food and good service makes this a top tier restaurant. The menu is well priced for the kind of restaurant this and for the amount of quality of food they serve.
