Great Buffet!

Just a tad off the beaten path, B.J's has a great buffet, friendly staff, very reasonable prices! Will stop again next time through Gaylord.

Fresh food (fantastic white fish ) beautifully cooked to perfection and the small town friendliness that made me feel welcomed and my business appreciated. Great martinis.

This restaurant has a buffet that is pretty good...not outstanding, but good. Never ordered off the menu but I'm sure its equally good. If you like buffets, this is a good place to go.

On a weekend getaway we stopped in at BJ's for breakfast. We both enjoyed omelettes. The homemade strawberry jam was a tasty surprise. Nice decor. Friendly service and affordable. Would recommend and will return when back in the area.

Great selection of breakfast food. Fruit Bar. Baked goods. Plus a breakfast bar that would fill an elephant at a great price. Hand made omelets while you wait. An up north feel. Friendly people. Great stop. Enjoy.

If you go for the buffet it is some good home cooked styles. There is nothing that will jump out at you. It is just solid and consistent. The staff is great. We have never had any problems. They do have a all you can eat Crab Legs and that is something that is exceptional. You will pay extra for... More

BJ's is pretty good, I like their Salad Bar, Soup, Hot Bar and Ice Cream. The hot bar depends on the day of the week, I've enjoyed the Fish and Shrimp, chicken, beef. They keep it stocked with fresh food. Love the soups and the salads are fresh.

We went Saturday night for the Prime Rib buffet and was impressed with the selection Something for everyone. We went back Sunday morning before heading out of town for breakfast and that was fantastic! There was all the normal breakfast items in abundance, an omelet station, fruit choices, & sweets section. We left full and then only wanted a light... More

We ate here during a stop on a bus tour. The buffet didn't have a large variety of selections and many items ran low without being refilled. Our waitress was rushed, however she was not friendly and didn't keep up with the group. We had to find our own basket of rolls from the serving counter as they weren't offered... More
