“Great atmosphere, reasonable prices”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

My family and I were on the way back from Sea World to L.A. on Saturday and came across this restaurant by accident. Situated just off I-5 and close to stores, it is a large but welcoming eatery. We had about a 20-minute wait, but a waitress came around and gave us samples of their pizza to keep the wolf from the door. There is a great deal of variety on the menu, and of course you can have one of their in-house beers. I had a sample shot of the cider, which was delicious. Our bill came to about $16 a head including tip, though it would be more if we had had alcohol.

“Whole Family Loved It!”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

We ate dinner here both nights we stayed & went to Lego Land. They have a large menu with so many yummy selections its hard to pick one - which is why we went there twice. The food was delicious. The service was great. Atmosphere was great. The dessert - a fresh baked cookie with ice cream on top was to die for! There was a little bit of a wait to get a table but not as bad as we're used to in Boise. My kids are still asking if we can eat at BJ's (we can't, they don't have any where we live, but they still ask about once a month).
Please BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse, build one in Boise, Idaho.

“Just OK”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

This restaurant is, like I said in the title, Just OK. We have had hits and misses on the food and service. Of course their signature dessert, the Pazookie, is delicious. But we don't go back often.

“First timer”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Loved the ambiance, waiters were so friendly, and gluten free items on the menu!
All of us loved what we ordered, and the price was reasonable.
