“Veteran's Day Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Took a retired Vet to lunch. He wanted to go there. Turns out that Vets were not charged for their lunch on Veteran's Day. Overall, the food was good, service fine and everyone was very friendly.

“If you like a good beer....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

then drop by!

We went there four times, most of which was during the happy hour between 3-7 which includes half price on all appetisers and various discounts on beer, call drinks etc. There is a promotional offer on at the moment for half price bottles of wine which we took advantage of a few times but I think this is only for holiday season.

Bearing in mind, this restaurant has only been open for around two months so there is a lot to pick up considering the extensive menu and vast selection of drinks and beer. On a couple of occasions we were given different information by different staff so it would help if everyone was on the same page and consistent. In terms of the drinks themselves, there are countless beers/ales/lagers available and each person is entitled to four samples. I tried the lightswitch (light beer) and pumpkin ale which is delicious so make sure you have a try of that but it is a little sweet!

The food was extremely nice on the appetiser front especially the wings and mini burger sliders. We opted for the extra hot wings which were hot but like us, we tend to find that the hotter the better!

On one of the nights there was a mix up with our bill (going back to my previous comment around wrong information provided by a staff member), however, this was easily rectified by the manager who was very helpful and listened to our concerns.

This does not take away that this is a great place to visit and it's very good locality wise, next door to the Bahama Breeze and Golden Corrall at Lake Buena Vista. So if you fancy a beer after a long shopping trip at the premium outlets then definately worth a trip!!

“Never Again!”

Horrible food, service and dirty silverware. Been to this location several times and by far this was the worst lunch outing I have ever experienced. Will not go back.

Enjoyed a nice dinner with family. Service was very good and 3 out of 4 of us had good food. It was a Saturday evening and we did not have to wait too long for a table

“Difference between BJ's and corner pizzeria.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

This location is in Citrus Park, Tampa and is located in a mall. What is the difference between Villas Pizza (food court) and BJ's Restaurant & Brewery????

At Villas Pizza, at least you'll receive paper plates vs. No Plates at BJ's even after asking for it!!!! Pathetic.
