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.

We really enjoy BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse. The menu has great variety and the food is great. My husband loves the prime rib meal and I love the prime rib sandwich. We all enjoyed our meal and celebrating our birthdays there.

It took an extremely long time for the food to be served. While waiting, Chris (our server) kept coming back to check on us. He was a great server! The food was excellent when it was finally served.

The food was good but not great. Hamburger was completely over- cooked. Chips and guac were fine but the guac was not overly flavorful (needed lime juice and red onion). Kale and brussel salad was jus ok- vegan diner asked for no cheese so the salad lacked taste - it would be nice to have had a non-dairy cheese option and additional herbs for a fuller taste profile. Will probably try at least one more time.

Nice quiet lunch with my grandson. He thoroughly enjoyed his sandwich & sweet potato fries. I had soup & flatbread pizza. Soup was ok. Could have been warmer. Flatbread pizza was rubbery, not crisp. Server was friendly & nice & attentive to our table.

I set up a reservation time and was told by the hostess that we had to wait in our car because the table wasnt ready and they would text me. 30 minutes later I still did not have a text so we went to another restaurant. After dinner I checked my phone and still did not have a message from BJs that our table was ready. Wont be going back any time soon.

Good to very good overall. Sometimes the sides are just room temp to warm. Often do not cancel out reservation on file which leads to open table chastising for not keeping reservation. Has happened to me on more than one occasion.

The host was rude When I asked if we could be seated earlier she asked “did you get a text” and asked her again to get sane rude response. Then when she seated us, she asked if we knew how to read and use the digital menu. The worst experience. So disappointed

we love this spot. even their “limited” covid menu has something for everyone. plus it’s $3 pizookies on tuesday’s. we love the tri tip and the pork chop, though everything we’ve tried has been super tasty there.

We ate here on Veterans Day to take advantage of their special with a reservation. We were seated early which was good. Ordered a Martini and it came out with ice chunks and no garnish (olives). Sent back to bar for a redue. It then came back warm without vermouth, straight gin. Not consumable in that condition. Instead of sending back again just asked for a glass of seltzer water with ice and lime and made my own beverage at the table. Enough alcohol for 3 drinks. The food order took 1 hour to receive but was good. This is the only reasons I was generous with rating, the food being good and their generosity with their Veteran Day offer. However, we will not patron this establishment again.

Mostly good food. Not gourmet though... it’s a chain. Pizza is thick crust not deep dish. Some appetizers are great. Decent drinks. Good social place.

The service is very sloww. It is a brewhouse so perhaps slow service and slow food is on purpose in order to encourage diners to purchase more drinks. Drink menu was 4 times the size of the food menu.

This was our first dine in meal in months. They did an excellent job of making us feel safe. Food was oustanding. I dont ever order pork chops out and glad I did. They were superb . Juicy and flavorful. We all had a great meal. Tables were well spaced. Menus were online. It was a great experience. Well done to the staff.

Sriracha brussel sprouts were pretty flavorless (no discernable sriracha) and tri top steak was a little overdone. Everything else was good.
