I visited BJs wanting just a Caesar salad and pizza. The Caesar was a tag dry w/o bacon and too much Parmesan. I had a small pan pizza which was just ok. What made my visit less palatable - 7 people standing around doing nothing and no one checked on me, picked up my finished plates, brought the check ...... More

Found this place whilst walking down the seafront. The menu outside enticed us in and the staff found us a table immediately even though we had a toddler with us. Our waiter was friendly and welcoming and we ordered drinks straight off. The food we ordered was huge. So much so most of the party couldn't finish it all. Great... More

The pizza here was very good. My family ordered the BBQ chicken pizza, which smelled wonderful. I ordered a gluten-free pepperoni pizza, which tasted good and had a very thin crust. My husband enjoyed the beer sampler he ordered. We finished the meal with a gluten-free chocolate chip baked dessert, which blew me away since most places make gluten-free dessert... More

Stopped in for lunch this on this rainy Monday afternoon. Mark your calenders for STORMWATCH 2016! BJs is always a reliable place for a good quick casual bite to eat. Grilled cheese sandwich and a bowl of tomato bisque soup. Comfort food. Delicious. Service was friendly, prompt, and professional. Views from the front of the restaurant allow for scenic views...

Great location just across the road from the sea, good pizza as always and had the Pizookie desert again staff friendly but the venue is tired and not the best BJ's we've visited unfortunately

This is a restaurant in downtown Laguna...In my opinion, the food is so-so as I like thin crust pizza...The place is always packed and there is always a line....

This has a fabulous location right across the street from the main beach. You can dine and then take your children across the street to the playground. The restaurant has a varied menu from pizza, sandwiches, salads, to main entrees. It has a s good lunch menu that lets you dine more economically. N the children's menu is also good.

We only went here as a last resort because there were very long waits at all other dining places in Laguna. I went to use the gross single bathroom in the back and saw a chef drop rice off of a plate because it was too hot. He picked it up with his bare hands and threw it back on... More
