We were pleasantly surprised with how beautiful the outdoor seating was. James was our server and he was very polite and attentive. Seating was comfortable with beautiful views. Food was very delicious. We will come here again and most likely stay at the hotel.

My husband and I met some friends from out of town for brunch on Sunday. I had been there several times before and know it's popular, so we made reservations through Open Table for right when they opened at 10:00am. We were seated promptly and received attentive service throughout our meal. Three of us had the make your own omelet and all three of us were extremely happy! The fourth wanted lunch and ordered the pastrami sandwich which made us all drool when it arrived. Needless to say the food was delicious! Two of us ordered bottomless mimosas and those glasses were never empty. The place filled up quickly (I was glad I didn't reserve a later time) but it was never too loud, and we never felt rushed. Highly recommend Finch for breakfast or lunch!

Time counts at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse. Since our humble beginnings back in 1978, we've continued to refine our brewhouse experience to make BJ's a place where you can make the most of any meal. We want BJ's to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail. Our guests come here for our award-winning handcrafted beer. They come here for the Southern California twist we've put on the Chicago-style deep dish pizza. And they come here for our Pizookies®, our world-renowned dessert. But above all we know people come here to make their good times better. So in many ways we haven't just crafted a brand, but a mindset. And our guests are the reason for this. And it's because of them we're continually striving to make sure every moment they choose to spend with us counts. Welcome to BJ's, a restaurant with a Brewhouse soul.

Loved that we could book a reservation. We were seated right away. Food was excellent and so was the service. It was very loud though. We weren’t in the main dining area. Next time we will ask to be seated in main dining area.
