The hosts and servers are always smiling and friendly and the food is always great! We love the variety of unique menu items BJ's has to offer. The Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms and Crispy Fried Artichokes are delicious! The Lemon Thyme Chicken on the "EnLIGHTened" menu is now one of my favorites!

Food is consistently good but the service is usually average. BJ's also has a good selection of different menu items. The Pizookie is a must try!

We ordered a bus on burger and chicken tacos. The business burger was ordered medium and came out rare. They were more than happy to recook the burger and the second time out it... More

Visiting from out-of-state, stopped in for beverages and food. Had their stout beer, very good! Happy hour half-off on some food dishes. Very good flatbread and calamari. Will come again!!
