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

Gross! Long wait. Too much on the menu for them to be good at any one thing. Food bland, service inattentive at best. Servers couldn't be more disinterested if you try. Typical over priced, under quality and under serviced chain we've come to expect in our country.

We have been to several BJ's and this one was typical. A little noisy, a little raucous on Sunday afternoon. I had the Roast Beef Dip, a BJs favorite of mine because it is served with both au jus and horseradish sauce. It was as expected. The wedge cut fries are always delicious. Service was fine.

Let's start with the good: My top sirloin steak was excellent and for a chain, the food is generally good and very reasonably priced. Good selection of choices, all with calories listed. On the negative side, our food was served at different times and some of the things we asked for didn't come at all. We had to wait 15... More
