Very Good for lunch

Had the Parmesan Chicken which was very good. The fish and chips looked good too. Pleasant staff and nice open area. Well worth a visit and good location.

BJ's serves some good American fare and has a superb selection of craft beers to please the palette. Prices are reasonable and the service consistently good. The only down side is that the restaurant's open, high ceiling construction encourages a noise level that can sometimes be a bit irritating. However, if the noise is not an issue for you, BJ's...

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 different.

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.
