We were staying near by before going to Legoland the next day. Found this place on trip advisor and thought we would give it a shot. The service was great, the food portions are very big. In hindsight we should've ordered 2 mains for a family of four (instead of 2 mains and 2 kids meals). The food was good,... More

We dropped by here for dinner while we were visiting the LEGOLAND/San Diego area. The service and food were good and they were accommodating in switching the rice for fettucine on the jambalaya. They also gave crayons to the kids which was nice.

I usually avoid chains, but I love BJ's. Everything from appetizers, to salads, to burgers. Main dishes and especially their signature pazookie dessert is delish. You often have to wait, but I'd say it's worth it! Great place to take kids, too, as the atmosphere is loud and friendly.

This location is across from the Outlet mall and Carlsbad Strawberry fields, close to Legoland, so it gets HUGE numbers of 'One-Time' diners, you know, the tourists who will only be in the area to eat there one time in their lives, add to that the fact it has a huge bar and it is a Brewhouse, so it gets...
