We came her for Mother's Day and enjoyed the breakfast buffet. The food was good, a nice spread of things to choose from, and our waitress was very nice.

Great customer service. The buffet was excellent. The happy hour specials are delicious. The nacho plate was truly a great plate. It had refried beans, three types of nacho chips and all the great stuff you expect on nachos. Salso and sour cream was also good. Our waitress was very accommodating. Would recommend highly.

While recently visiting the area, went to BJ's for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. All four of us got the buffet and was pleasantly surprised by the variety of options, particularly meats. There were multiple ways that chicken, fish, shrimp and pork was available...plus roast beef. Plus a full salad bar with a selection of homemade salads. There was so... More

We always stop into BJs for breakfast and it's always great. They allow my wife and I to order from the menu and they allow the kids to get the buffet - and it's all great. Really to me it's the servers that set this place apart...they're all awesome.

My family ate at BJs after the alpenfest. They were very busy so we decided to have their buffet. My wife asked how much the buffet was for the 2 youngest kids ages 7 and 8 she said 4.99. My wife and older daughter wanted the buffet with the crab legs $29,99. The 2 younger kids wanted them also so... More

Generous buffet and all home-cooking. Omelette station on breakfast buffets. Homemade desserts, potato pancakes and cinnamon French toast. It's ALL good! Quick and friendly service. Reasonably priced.

BJ's buffet is outstanding! Good, hot, and a variety of everything you could want for an excellent price. If you go away hungry, it's your own fault!

The seafood buffet food was tasteless, overcooked and dried out. The salad's were all dried out. Look as if they had been sitting out since lunch. The fish was greasy and overcooked. The shrimp was so overcooked it cut the roof of my mouth. The only plus about the shrimp, was that they were butterflied and without tails. The frog... More

My lovely wife and I shared one of their wet burritos and it is huge. We got the beef with the condiments on the side. You can have it with chicken. It was more salty than usual, but still pretty good. It is more then one person should eat.
