Good food and great service specifically at Bar area tables, during 12 noon to 3 pm. Happy hour specials both food and drinks are more than reasonable. The bar staff is consistently fast, efficient and professional, both male and female bartenders. Lots of parking, shopping right there as well. The wait staff in the bar area designated for dining are... More

Got seated right away. Waitress was friendly and took order quickly. Food took a bit to come out but was good. It took a bit to get my check. I would say overall service was average nothing remarkable

The food is perfectly fine, but I think it's over priced for the type of food they serve. Bar is good, but often can't find a bar seat. It's always crowded because it's in the mall. I've had to walk away because I was quoted an hour wait for a table for two and no seats at the bar. (It... More

I took my family here for dinner after shopping at the Spirit store. It was not too busy but it took a really long time for our food to arrive. When it did show up the French dies for my three kids dinner were warm at best and not cooked fresh. I have the ravioli and the inside of mine... More

Went there in August 2016 (party of four). Extensive menu of food items. Lot of beers and other drinks to choose from. My meal (penne pasta with shrimp and asparagus) was delicious. My wife liked her beef patty sliders with the thin cut fries (I thought the beef was a bit dry). Others in our party were happy with their... More

While vacationing in the San Fran area with my son and his friend (both 18), we stopped here for lunch and some shopping. The service was great and the food was amazing. While I was hesitant to eat at a chain restaurant, I was glad we did. I had the Mediterranean Chicken tacos (amazing!) and my son and his friend... More

Been frequenting BJ's restaurants for almost two years, now. Have the App, joined the Membership Club, and enjoying the perks that comes with that! The "bottomless root beers" (brewed actually on-site), the EXCEPTIONAL PORTER, and great mid-day specials keeps us coming back!

The standard BJ's fare but very busy. Part of a shopping complex and obviously popular before going to cinema. Make sure you book. Food was good and Ron, our waiter was very funny. Safe bet if by the airport and need to eat,
