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.

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.

I was dining here last Sat. night. One couple ahead of me waiting to pay commented on the spoiled - foul tasting prime rib they were served. Then an employee (I'm assuming the cook) came to the front booth where people pay and started screaming and yelling at the manager. The manager very calmly kept talking to the crazy cook... More
