For those of you who understand how grueling the preparation is for a colonoscopy AND how very empty your gut feels after the procedure, you can understand how important that first meal is post procedure. My sister brought me here for lunch after my latest procedure, and the burger and fries I ordered were impeccable. Hot, fresh, tasty, and served... More

I have eaten here several times. Always friendly and consistent. The food is good, the service quick and the beer is awesome. They brew many of their own beers and often had new varieties to try. They will always bring you a sample to taste. This visit, I decided to try the bison burger. It was excellent, very lean and... More

I wonder why quite a few reviewer complaining about not enough dressing until I try it. It was just barely enough for me because I don't use a lot of salad dressing. I ordered chicken and the portion was small. Service was just OK. The place was clean There is really nothing special about this place.

We've been to other BJ'S across the country and have always had good service and generous portions of tasty food. This time, we took our family of 8 to BJ'S and was pretty disappointed with the food portions, although tasty. We had to take our son-in-law (small 160 pound guy with an average appetite) to Sub-Way to get a sandwich... More

Service at a booth in the bar was outstanding with a pleasant, friendly female server who went above and beyond to provide our lunch. The food was very disappointing. I had the southern fried chicken, mashed potatoes were good, gravy had a great flavor but there was not enough of it and potatoes had to be eaten dry. The chicken... More

We've eaten here several times and when it's good, it's great. But this restaurant is very inconsistent. Service has always been good, but the food, not so much. A frequent complaint is no dressing or not enough dressing, on the salad. We've had kids burgers with barely any meat and cold. Fries are often cold.

Terrible, terrible food. Waste of money waste of time. Cheese burger overcooked and tasted like chemical. Avocado egg rolls (nice concept) ripe avocados would have better flavor. Really disappointed. Husband and I don't get out that often alone and were treating ourselves since we aren't getting each other Christmas presents. Things have been really tight since being diagnosed with stage...

This place offers a varied menu and some unusual items. You can get anything from burgers to pizza, a crusted chicken dinner, great appetizers, nice bar selections. Have been there several times and tried something new each time. Nice family place, something for everyone.

Service was terrible. Waited forever to get our food and I ordered a salad. No apology. Nothing. Will not be going back.
