“Its not bad”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

The food is pretty good. The service is a bit on the slow side. There was three of us there for dinner. We were seated in a booth and it smelled like someone had thrown up in it. We moved ourselves and informed our food server. We ordered some adult beverages and and an appetizer. We got the appetizer before we got our drinks. We ordered french dips. They were tasty, but we have had better. Lots of bread, not too much meat or cheese. The aus juice was very good. We were in San Mateo for the annual Progressive International Motorcycle Show. We will not be going to that event again, so we will probably not be going to this restaurant again.

“Good choice for late-night drinks and apps in Foster City area”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is probably the only place around Foster City where you can get a drink after 10pm. At that hour, the bar area has some empty seats and maybe some tables. During weekdays, they also have late happy hours making the trip worthwhile.

“Pizza, drinks and sports”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Visit this place while they are still offering the 2 for 20 deal. You get an appetizer, medium pizza and a pizukki to share. My wife and I have done this multiple times and have never been disappointed. Their beers are awesome and the wife loves their mixed drinks. The wait is not too bad, despite a friday or saturday night. The service is very good, despite rush hour dinner time.

“Good food and prices”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Went on a Friday evening and was a very busy place. Food was pretty good although not a lot of chicken on the chicken salad I ordered. Friend had a burger that was supposedly good although did not have what she wanted on it. If I was in the area again I would go as long as the wait wasn't too long.

“Wow, I Love This Place!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

This was my first trip to a BJ's, and it will not be my last. The food is absolutely outstanding -- huge variety, flavorful dishes, all beautifully presented. BJ's is a great example of a chain restaurant where the offerings have been invented by a hugely talented team of modern day chefs. The menu includes several truly delicious low calorie entries. And, the specialty beers are very interesting and great fun to try.
