Wide variety of beer and food

A little noisy if you want to have a business meeting. But not the worst for noise. Excellent selection of craft beers. Wide menu variety so a good place to go if everyone in the group has different preferences. Everyone at our table enjoyed their food and we each ordered something... read more

BJ's was a great place to head over and have some food and drinks after work. They had some great specials for their happy hour, and the food was great. The one downside was that the service was a little slow, and the bartenders didn't move with any sort of urgency. Great sports bar atmosphere, but if you are impatient... More

We just fancied an evening out to have some beers and catch up on "stuff". This was the perfect hang-out place. Food was as expected, the wings very tasty as well as the corn cakes (or something, I forget their name). The main dishes were well prepared and the beer selection perfect. It's the perfect place to unwind with friends.

Their Ahi Poke is so good. The calamari is great. Everyone liked everything they ordered. The service was good, but it was a little noisy.

The ambiance is good and it's very competitively priced too. You can go for a beer while a football match is going on or can hang out with friends and enjoy your evening. Didn't see too many families though.

This Sports Bar was an easy walk from the Crowne Point Hotel, Foster City. It was recommended by concierge and he hit a home- run with this suggestion. We were on a short business trip and went here every day out of four. Specialty was draft brews (10) and good food. Pretty large establishment and it was hard to get... More

Great beer selection, good views of many televisions for football watching and a wide variety of pub type food from more chi chi (good beet and arugula salad) to burgers and fish and chips. The service was friendly and prompt.

BJ's is a brewery. They have on taps from A to Z! BJs has a large bar area. You can bet that on any game day, it would be crowded with people. If you're waiting for a table, there's usually a wait. The food is pretty good especially dishes with beef. They have the typical happy hour bar food. They... More
