“Good beer selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

I just drank here so no food review. BJ’s has a large selection of draft beers including Guinness. I was about to do a Guinness but tried their dark beer (forget the name of it) and went with a pint of the home-brewed dark. It was quite good. I happened to be there in the late afternoon and got the happy hour pricing of $4.00 for a pint. Great deal!

“Food is good; service is spotty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014

I've been here several times, and generally the food is good. The service can be hit and miss. Sometimes, the service is excellent, other times, it can leave a lot to be desired. Had one bad experience with food being cold, but it may be attributed to the horrible service we had at that one particular time. Just went there couple of days ago, and the food was very good, but the server was very morose; he mumbled through our order and generally acted as if his dog had just died. Then all of a sudden, towards the end of the meal, he perked up, and was crackin' jokes. Kinda weird. But the food is generally consistently good. It's pretty much always busy, especially during a big game or something, as they have TVs all over the place. Just about any seat is a good seat to watch your favorite Bay Area sports team. It's a great place to watch a game. The longest wait time I've ever had was about 45 minutes, usually it's no more than 15 or 20 minutes. All in all, a good place to eat. Just gotta know it's probably going to be busy, service is hit or miss, food is good, and a great place to watch a game.

“Birthday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

The food menu is superb. Many selections to choose from. I chose the hamburger with
Potatoes and it was excellent
Others in our group had different selections and they all raved about what they ate . No regrets .
The beer selection is fantastic. Especially the their dark beer on tap.

“Good food but loud”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

BJ's offers a vast menu with something for everyone, but the music they played if always too loud, and makes conversations hard.
