We have driven by BJ's hundreds of times, but never stopped. We recently decided to give it a try on a special nite out, and were disappointed. The noise level was ridiculous - had to shout to be heard across the table. We are seniors,...More

Good place to eat, food was very good. When we got there there were not many people yet so noise level was good. I assume when full it would get quite noisy.

My family and I came to have a late lunch on December 31 2017. As I proceeded to the hostess station, I guess I interrupted a conversation because I had nothing but attitude from that point on. She rudely asked me how many, so I...More

Darn they said we would have a 45 minute wait so we sat in the bar ....good choice. Not only was the food perfect but we had the best waiter we could image. Perfect evening out for our little 3 generation family.

This place looks like it would be a good time but..... The servers are a bit neglectful, the food is just a shade above mediocre, the servers are neglectful (yes, I said it twice), and the noise level in the restaurant is excruciating. There's noise...More

I will start with a stipulation - the food is outstanding - always is. The one star is for the horrific service. We went for lunch today at 11:30 to beat the crowd. Most seats and booths were empty but we waited 10 minutes to...More
