A good place to go by yourself

I stop here for lunch when I shop at the Esplanade. They have a very good Chopped Thai Salad and the lettuce wraps are good as well. The service is very good too. For being so large, it still feels somewhat cozy to me. Maybe because of the booths which I try to get. There is a sports bar and... read more

Lively atmosphere with fantastic food and drink! A great place for family and friends to gather and enjoy a wide variety of American food. They have something for everyone....seafood, burgers, pizzas, steak.....an expansive menu. Brussels sprouts as an appetizer and Cherry Glazed Salmon were incredibly delicious. I wish I had one of these near my home! The wait staff was... More

Serious choice paralysis when looking at this menu. They have great salads, pizza, burgers, and more traditional dinner fare like chicken, steak, pasta, etc. Large drink menu with tasty selections from their brewery. There is something to please everyone here. Their prices are reasonable and the service is usually pretty good. After a military event my fiance and I had... More

We got a gift card and went for dinner. I had chicken and my wife had steak. Neither was cooked to perfection and we returned them both. My wife ordered a different steak and I got a hamburger. The burger was fine but no better than anywhere else. The next steak was worse. We asked for the check, left and... More

This place is amazing, not only is the food great but the service is outstanding. They have the best beers that are also award winning. They also have on line ordering and very family friendly. Their appetizers are out of this world and they have such a wide selection of food, from pizza to burgers to great pasta dinners. They... More

Really liked the varieties of food available. It was good too! Enjoyed good service. Lunch menu offered smaller portions for cheaper prices. It left me space for dessert.....all part of my master plan! Decent place to eat.....good atmosphere for hanging out with friends to enjoy food, beverages, and good company with good service!

We live near a BJ'S so while we were traveling we wanted to watch a baseball game & have dinner. We are familiar with the menu. I ordered balsamic chicken that was so hard & dry I couldn't cut it with a steal knife. My husband ordered a steak Med rare. His too was over cooked, dry, and tasteless. Not... More

Everyone already knows almost every BJs is noisy. Open concept, hard floors and big screen TVs - just the way it is. I'm not usually an appetizer person but they had potstickers so I gave in. Give me a break!!! Six Potstickers for over 9 dollars. They aren't super size or ultra gourmet - similar to the ones I buy... More

If you can not find anything on this menu that tickles your taste buds I have no idea where you will. From appetizers to desserts everything we had every time we have been there is delicious.

Staff was great and friendly even though very busy. We are rewards club members and wait staff clued us in to a special we were not aware of. Saved is $$$$$.. Also allowed us to use our rewards point for a $25 credit even with the special that we ordered.
