The food is awful

The one good thing about this place is that they serve dinner late. My husband and I needed a late night dinner and this is one of the only options in Maryland in December. That's about the only good thing. The food is so terrible I can't even give it justice. The lobster was rubbery and NO... read more

BJ's has been around for many, many years so I must say they are doing something right. The service is very good and the view is outstanding. The food is okay. The burgers are average. The Gobbler is okay but very difficult to eat in its open-face form. The seafood skins which many feel are the signature dish are okay.... More

BJ's is reliable, but I have to say when you first walk in there is a bad smell. That smell has been there for years and because they are so reliable with their product it's ignored. I wish they would rip up the carpet and check for other possible causes. Love the seafood salad made with scallops, crab legs, and... More

I've been going here for 30 years and watched all the updates and smiled and enjoyed along with the rest of Ocean City locals. Everyone is made to feel a local by Frank, Jeremy and the rest of the crew with no cover charges and excellent bands playing all the time. The owners Billy and Maddie are hands on and... More

Took a group of 15 on our church staff retreat. The service was outstanding. Our waiter was friendly, fun and very attentive. Food was awesome especially the hot and blue shrimp appetizer. You won't be disappointed in this place.

This was not our first time at BJ's and my husband and I always think it will be better than it actually is. The location is really good, right in the middle of town and on the bay but that's the best part. We were here in the summer and disappointed with our dinners and the high prices then so... More

My husband and I have been going to OC, MD for many years and we go both in and out of season. We most recently were there for a few days between Christmas and New Years. We were trying to find a restaurant and were encountering such long wait times that we almost gave up and ordered a pizza.... fortunately... More

Average food and lacking in drink specials. I don't really have a desire to return. Nearby there are a few other options that I would rather frequent, so if you find yourself in the area take a look around for a different locale.
