I have only been to two BJs in California but they were both terrific. Great place to watch a game or have a meal with family and or friends. Great atmosphere. Pretty pricey but the food is delicious. Busy sports nights you may want to call ahead for a reservation but I have never really waited over 20 minutes.

The hostess and waitress were very friendly and the service was excellent. The menu is very extensive. A good variety of different types of food to choose from. I had the Mediterranean Chicken Tacos and my husband had a pizza. Both were really good. The restaurant as well as the bathrooms were very clean. We are definitely coming back!

Have eaten here a few times when visiting Oxnard and the restaurant is consistently good and the staff very friendly. We visited last Monday for a late lunch and opted for the soup and half a sandwich. Both the tomato and the lentil soup was really tasty but could have been a little warmer. The sandwiches as usual were very... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants! It is always busy but that is because the food is so good. My husband always orders the clam chowder and half of the turkey club sandwich. The clam chowder is soooooooooo good! and the sandwich is also great. I usually get a chicken casear salad. The dressing they put on the salad... More

Have been by this place many times and always opted to eat elsewhere. Glad we finally tried it. We were seated immediately on a Saturday night. The initial service was slow, waiter went on break, took too long to get drinks and appetizers but once we did get them and the new waitress; all was good. Food was all very... More

Lovers of craft beer would love this place! The Sierra Otra Vez and Light Switch Lager we ordered was great, and just as they went down the food arrived. My associate enjoyed the Brewhouse BBQ with steak fries and that turned out to be a hefty meal! I went with the lettuce wedge and the turkey burger, both of which... More

The dinnig room is very big, it was crowed but we could get a table in few minutes. They have sample beers, so I could enjoy 8 beers. Food is great and generous.

Came to celebrate my Daughters graduation. It was fairly late, after 8, so we figured we could get in and out fairly efficiently - WRONG. Waiter took our drink order then brought drinks then took food order - an appetizer and 4 entrees including my steak. A while later we get our calamarie appetizer, what a disappointment! Not much there... More

Server was overwhelmed, had a large party and three tables in addition to the large party. We got our drinks quickly but then the waiting started. 25 min wait before we ordered, 20 min to get salads, then 35 more min to get our food. Who knows how long it took them to get the pazuki out because we left... More

We take our son and his family here when we go to Ventura.Good food and beer and nice kid's menu. Don't go here if you are in a hurry as it takes a while to get your order.
