Very nice ambience, high ceilings, cool colors, comfortable. Great service. Food is fresh and hot when it gets to you. You must try the flash fried Brussels sprouts. Pizza is also very good. Everything is a little overpriced but the quality is great.

I prefer local, non-chain spots, but when you are traveling and starving you take what you can get. After a 5hour trip to SeaWorld on a 100* day, mom and dad needed a drink and all the little one wanted was mac 'n cheese. This was the perfect spot. Great happy hour (strong drinks) and our server was awesome, I... More

Showed up with my 7 year old son at 6:30pm on a Saturday. Wait time was 30-40 mins so we found a seat the in the bar area (kids ok). Service was good and so was the locally brewed beer. If you're looking for organic or authentic, look elsewhere. This place is good in a "Cheesecake Factory" kind of way.... More

Waited about 15 min to be seated on a busy Sat night. I think that was quick considering it was very busy! We sat outside on the patio and the weather was perfect for it. The server was very attentive and super nice. Will def come again when in town.

We expected a long wait for a table, arriving on a Saturday evening, so 45 minutes was okay. During this wait we looked a menu and were ready to order as soon as we were seated, however it took forever for our food to arrive. Yes, this is a typical noisy, busy BJ's, but it seems the kitchen wasn't prepared... More

First of all this restaurant was FREEZING! My husband, who never gets cold, was freezing. I had a lightweight down jacket since we were traveling & I was still freezing. It was warm out so the air conditioning must have been on high. Hint, take a coat just in case! Food was just so-so. Fish & chips were somewhat watery.... More

If you are under 25 and like lots of noise and service doesn't mean to much. This was a family dinner (11 adults and 4 children). Every one was disappointed with the food and very slow service.

A fun restaurant/bar with multiple tv screens with sports galore. Football, golf, races, etc. The food never disappoints and their beers are delicious.
