BJ's takes top honors in two categories that are important to my family: beverages and dessert.

First, because it's so unusual let's tackle beverages. Who today makes their own rootbeer? BJ's does and, according to my teenage boys who are rootbeer connoisseurs, it is FANTASTIC. (I loved the terrific beer selection with plenty of craft and premium beers.)

Second, dessert. Love chocolate, cookies and ice cream? If so BJ's has the ultimate dessert called the 'Triple Chocolate Pizookie'. Like the rootbeer it's all made on the site, uses Ghiradhelli chocolate and, unlike too many desserts, it lives up to the hype. We also loved our appetizers and main courses which also had great flavor and ample portions. Service was prompt and friendly.

We were in town for a weekend tournament and the first meal was so great we went back for lunch the next day loved the food and drinks just as much as the first time. It was at that point we decided BJ's really did have the best ever dessert and rootbeer. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I liked the fact that as soon as we sat down our server immediately greeted us. We never had to wait for our order to be taken, drinks re-filled and food came out hot! Everything was prepared perfect.

Visited BJs for lunch with co-workers. Our server may have been having a bad day? Honestly some of the poorest and slowest service I've ever experienced. We arrived well before noon and before the rush so it wasn't as though the restaurant was busy.
No refills on any of our drinks and did not check to see if any of us needed refills. She would disappear into the back / kitchen for 5+ minutes at a time so it was very difficult to flag her down for assistance.
After ordering and waiting 30 minutes, another server brought one salad and one soup but nothing to the rest of the group.
After 40 minutes, we had to ask the hostess if they could check on our order or find our server.
The server came out of the back 5 minutes later and said she was lining up our order and it should be out soon.
An hour after we arrived, our food was brought to us, semi-warm and honestly just OK. Our group tried the fish tacos, shrimp tacos, chicken strips, caesar salad - and unfortunately everyone was under-whelming.
When restaurants are busy and you can see the servers are running and working hard, waiting for good food can be acceptable to me. To not have checked in on us and / or acknowledge our long wait was poor. To have a server disappear and then see others standing around staring into the distance is unacceptable. Seems that a good front end manager is needed. BJ's is not worth a return visit to see if they have improved.

We went to BJ's restaurant at the Westfield Southcenter mall. Big restaurant with lots of seating. The menu was amazing! It was the size of a book!!! They had so much to choose from.
