BJ's is a good average restaurant for sandwiches, ribs and custom beers. It is located in a shopping mall but on the outer fringe so you don't have to into the mall to use the facility. Being a sports bar, it is quite noisy so if you want a lunch or dinner with polite conversation this is not your place. There are a huge number of TV"s show various sports events. The ribs and sandwiches are good and they have a wide selection of custom beers. The decor is typical sports bar.

Okay for families and sports lovers, lots of big screen TV to watch your favotrite sport. It's a restaurant with a formula..all the servers are required to up sell apps and the pizookie dessert. Food is mediocre, tasting premade or canned. Cocktails are syrupy. Kids will like the mix and match menu.

I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of selections to choose from. I was expecting a menu far more limited because of the sports bar motif. But, there was so much to choose from: Chinese to Low Carb to barbeque. The food was well prepared, and served quickly. The service was also top-notch!

BJ's is a good place to go for a decent meal at a good price. My husband and I have been there several times both for lunch and dinner. My husband's favorite selection is a small plate that is off menu - seared ahi tuna bites with a small salad. You have to ask for it.
We have enjoyed several items on the menu, tortilla soup, clam chowder, chicken quesadilla, roast chicken and more.
BJ's touts its many types of beer, some of which they make. While I am not a beer drinker my husband loves their 4 oz. glasses of porter beer
The young people who are the servers are very friendly and efficient.
The restaurant also has a bar and several large televisions usually tuned to various sports events. Fortunately the TV sound is muted.
BJ's also has takeout with designated parking spaces for those who have come to pick up their food.
We will certainly return to BJs.
