Came here to celebrate Christmas with friends on a Friday night. Parking sucks so I ended up parking at Home Depot. The place is packed but the service is good. Ordered chipotle glazed salmon and I honestly enjoyed every bite of it. If you make reservations, they will only hold it for 15 minutes so make sure you arrive on... More

I think of BJs for pizza and beer. They are clearly expanding their offerings. We stopped for a quick lunch while on a road trip and had the soup and salad (my soup was the chili). At lunch, at least, refills are free. They were doing quite a business on a Friday for lunch.

So we got here at 5:30 ish for a 6 party of 12 or so. We tried to make a reservation, and were asked why we didn't. We waited a bit to be seated, grabbed a drink at the bar the bartenders were talking about it being slow. Fast forward to the seating. Great server named Greg. He was good!... More

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
