Three old friends decided to catch up for dinner and started with a very impersonable first impression from the hostess, followed by even less personable from the waitress, and had to return the beer twice for being completely flat (from a brewhouse) I ordered the quinoa salmon bowl and it was very bland and dry without a distinct taste.

Very generous portions and I believe any of the appetizers would be sufficient as a main meal. Always great service and atmosphere. Only 1 critique - if you offer hot tea on the menu, serve it correctly in a tea pot & not cup of water!

Team dinner. This location missed the mark, short on staff, noisy, food was marginal. With a large area selection go elsewhere and await changes. Average at best.

Flat bread nachos were burnt, not crisp but burnt, didn't send back as to not delays other's in party with their meals. Added chicken and could barely find tiny diced pieces.

My daughter, her BF and I went to BJ's at her suggestion on a Monday night. She'd gone there previously with her cousins on a Monday, when they have a 50 percent off any large pizza deal. Despite hearty appetites and no appetizers, we barely ate half of a large deep-dish pizza and thin crust pizza. Good news as my... More

This place is close where we live and have been here few times. Went for lunch after a while and were disappointed. The service was bad. Server came and put drinks on the edge of the table with liquid spilling on the table and walked away. Food service was not the greatest. Food was very average as far as flavor... More
