Good, friendly service, and a relief to find it open after we arrived at a motel that appeared not to be near anyplace to eat or drink. Drinks were fine, food was so-so, with the sliders badly overcooked tiny little pellets on what turned out to be too much bread give the size of the burger. Still, we were happy with the welcoming atmosphere.

We are traveling, never been to a BJ's before. It was SaThe food was good but the service was terrible. We sat for over 10 minutes after being seated to even have anyone come to the table. We ordered our drinks and food together, afraid to wait until after we got out drinks. 10 minutes alter we got Coffee and Ice Tea. He did not bring a spoon to stir the coffee or tea. Later he brought utensils. Food came and he did not come over for some time. Later we asked for Ketchup and Jelly and he brought Ketchup then disappeared. We did not get the jelly until we only had a couple bites of food left. No offer for more coffee or tea was made. We finally asked for more coffee and did not get it for another 10 minutes. First time we ever did not leave a tip. Too bad a poor server can give you such a poor opinion of an restaurant.

We needed a place to eat before taking the BART train to San Francisco to spend the evening/night. On our way to the station, we stopped at this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. We shared a deep dish pizza and the waitress was kind enough to tell us about a promotion they were having with included a salad and a desert for the same price (which would normally require a coupon). I would recommend this restaurant.

I met my son here for early Christmas get together and we come there for several get togethers over several years. We expected and received great service & food. We were only disappointed once when had run out of a particular type of coffee he likes.
Otherwise very pleased and will go back.

As a business traveler I hate to eat solo in restaurants. You are usually placed in a back table near the kitchen. So was the case on my visit. The server was terrible, did not get order correct and VERY slow at taking order, serving order and getting the bill. Food was very good but the service killed the visit. Will not go back to BJs again.
