Never experienced a BJ's, but glad we did. Friends took us here and was pleasantly surprised. Menu was diverse. Atmosphere was well done, with high ceilings and open view with short walls to segment the different areas, yet still able to see over the walls where you did not feel "shut-in". Great food smells and menu choices. Staff appeared professional and upbeat. We were there for a late lunch and they allowed us to order from the lunch menu, even though "lunch hours" had passed by just a little bit. Food was good and had solid levels of flavor's to the dish. Sweet tea was VERY sweet. It was like Georgia/Alabama/Mississippi "southern sweet". I toned it way back with un-sweet tea to balance it. Not sure if the tea as just overly sweet that day, or if this is the norm. All in all, a good choice on the map of what to do and where to eat. You will enjoy.
