Bj's brew pub and sportsbar - great place for small or large get-togethers!

BJ's is great place for friends or large groups for casual dining and very good beers! They have a full bar and a menu with a lot of variety. My favorite thing about BJ's is that they can handle a team post- game or a cast post- show! I have had 40-50 people there late at night, and there are... read more

I normally shun these big sports bar/brew houses because of the big screens mounted in every angle of the place making it impossible to maintain eye contact with your dinner companion, but someone else in our group chose this one last night. First I ordered a Guinness from the tap...got a watered down flavorless beer that I sent back after... More

Food is not bad. Bar is good for watching sports. I think they could keep the tables and mrnus cleaner. The menus are a little sticky.

The menu has burgers, salads, fish and chips, chicken, lettuce cups, whatever you are in the mood for, they serve. It's reasonable and reliable. No complaits, but not fine dining.

We have been eating here since BJ's opened. While we love the beers and the staff in the bar area, the only thing consistent about the food is how inconsistent it is. This is a pizza place and many times, we have ordered pizza to learn there is no sauce or no tomatoes, once they even ran out of pizza... More

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...
