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

Stopped here as our kids wanted pizza. Which by the way was really good, we also order fish tacos and they were overprices and not good. The service was bad, we had to ask many times for napkins, refills and other stuff. Server would be really busy taking new order and would forget already served tables. We saw lots of... More

Across the road from busy Laguna beach, the restaurant has a friendly relaxed atmosphere. The beer selection is extensive and locally brewed. There's a wide selection of food - the pizzas seemed to be the favourite. Service was efficient and the food great!

Although it is a chain BJ's is always good. The best salads and pizza! We live pretty close so go often. In the summer there is usually a wait to get in, so I would say to go in the off season!

Our server Shay T was incredible. He was very knowledgeable about the food in the beer selection . The food was cooked perfectly and Shay T was beyond accommodating. They even cut the fruit into kids sized bites. Try the bison burger!!

BJ's was exactly what our family needed!! I didn't know if we would find something that could feed my husband and I and our 2 year old in a reasonable time frame and give us choices that we would all enjoy- this was perfect!! The staff was great and welcoming to our toddler. They gave us a U shaped booth... More

Is it bad? Not really-- but if you're in Laguna where there is so much to offer, dining at BJ's would be the waste of a meal in my opinion. There are so many fantastic dining options in laguna that aren't chains, and I would suggest looking into those before coming here. Plus, if you are visiting in the high... More

This is a good choice for a reasonably priced family meal like pizza or pasta. The booths are fairly cramped and the noise level is considerable. That said, the food is good and the service level is excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to return.
