The restaurant is large, and a good spot to stop and take a break while shopping. My husband likes all the beer options and TV's for sporting events..

We live a mile away so we visit often. We like the many choices of beer and the many choices for food. You can find low cal and low fat food items for lunch and dinner. They have special offers several times a year. It is a good family or couples restaurant. It can get a little noisy.

on the way to beach i was surprised that my wife suggested we come here since she usually detests any thing remotely macho. but she'd been here before and had liked the non-meat offerings as well as the beer. i had the tri tips with mashed and vegetables. the vegetables were excellent while the meat was tasty but tough. the...

I have visited BJ's at Northgate Mall at least 6 times during my visits to San Rafael from DC. I have found the food to be reasonably good for a decent price. Unfortunately, the table service has been horrendous during my three (table service) visits. I had to wait forever to be waited on and when the meals arrived they... More

First thing that hits me when I walk in, Hostess staring at me, no words, just waiting for me to say something. I break down and say "for two." She responds with "name." I respond, yes I have one. It's downhill from there. Pleasant enough waitress, she forgot our appetizer order. We're served our salad but no dinnerware. We request... More

Burger was fine. As well as my berry cider. The tiny fries were awesome. Great flavor. Not sure why. My waiter made a ranch and sriacha dip for them too. Yum. My waiter Dustin was awesome.

This is a mall restaurant with a large menu. We were a big group of about twenty, and apparently that is just too many folks for this place to handle at one time. We were promptly seated at a very nice outdoor long table, and all got water and menus, but after that things went south. Appetizers arrived after entrees,... More

We were in the area on a business trip. Since BJ's is open late we ate her 4 of 6 nights we were in town. We enjoy the variety on the menu. You can get pretty much what you want they have so many choices. We had great service especially from Tess the first night we were there. We had... More

This was my second visit to BJ's in the last 6 months. The brew's here are very good, ranging for lagers, IPA's and stouts. The food is average, pretty much what one would expect from a chain. The service was slow, for a Monday afternoon. The servers and wait staff seem a little confused, bringing the wrong order to the... More
