“Zero Service in empty bar area seating.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

We just tried to patronize BJ's for the first time. We walked in just as another couple was bring seated by the host. The host invited us to sit in the bar and pointed to the booths. So, into the bar area booths we went....where we ignored by the wait and bar staff. There was a group of white coat staff in the corner laughing and joking and ignoring us. We thought the bartender might acknowledge us and come out from behind the bar after he served another patron....but were very wrong. We can't speak to the quality of food... We just know the service is AWFUL!

“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

Toppings on pizzas were OK. Crust somewhat underdone. Proprietary beer is good. Like the Reno BJ's quality better.

“Spicy beef tacos very tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Enjoyed shredded beef tapa size tacos with black beans. On lunch menu but asked for and served for dinner. Very nice portion (not so big and massive) at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend and great with a brown beer. Food very good but atmosphere a bit too loud. Nice wait staff but seem spread a bit too thin.

“Good food, great happy hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is a nice place, and decent for going for dinner with friends, but the real draw is the happy hour. You can get a half priced mini pizza, appetizer discounts and numerous alcoholic drink discounts. Make sure you sit in the bar area for the happy hour though.

“Above average food for a big chain restaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

I would have given it an excellent rating but the noise level on a busy night makes it a bad place to try to have a conversation. First date?... don't even think about it.
