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.

Great food and drinks, nice OUTSIDE seating complete with a propane firepit!!

They did turn the music down when we asked so that we could have a conversation. Would I go back again??? I already have!

Parmesan crusted chicken is the best!

Food took 45-50 minutes to come out and it was just appetizers. The place was about 1/3 full.

For a Monday night -- when it wasn't all that busy -- our food was served lukewarm. Not sure why, but we all were a bit disappointed.

Usually, there are no problems with BJs but they were a bit off their game.

Basic pub food but the beer was fantastic! The Oktoberfest on tap was so good my husband thought it was even better than Sam Adams brand.

Waiter, Connor, did not do a good job at all. He assumed we were finished without checking and prematurely brought our check. When he brought it the first time and we questioned it, he said "It's just so you can see where you are" and he circled the tip section... rude. He barely checked on us, we had to call him over when we needed something. When we finally were ready to go he took forever and a day to come to the table and collect payment. We had cash and a card on the table (and he walked by the table about 3 times) and he yelled from behind the bar "Do you need me to swipe?"
There were instances where he did not face our table when we asked for something. I asked for something that he NEVER brought and although he took it off the price of the order, he never checked in with me to see if I still wanted it. Connor was very standoffish and rude, whether he realized it or not.
My friends and I have been to BJ's 3 or 4 times and had great experience, but this experience honestly makes me not want to come back... at all.

the waitress was obviously very new. Had to help her find beers on her tablet, didn’t ask how I want my steak. I got my steak and it was EXTREMELY raw. Still bleeding and I do not eat my meat that way also my mashed potatos were cold. I didn’t complain because I felt uncomfortable. The bartender did lovely though.

I think I made a poor choice for dinner. I had the Chicken Parmesan and it was two very thin pieces of chicken over cooked. It actually was almost difficult to cut.
I’ve had the fish and chips which is wonderful and their burgers are great.

Plenty of delicious options on the menu for different preferences and diets. The enlightened power bowls are a great low-calorie choice and can be prepared with meat, fish or vegetarian. There are many beer/cocktail options as well and the restaurant makes its own sodas. The waiters are always friendly and service is generally quick. The music is played at a reasonable level so you don’t have to shout across the table for your party to hear you, and the decor is modern. I like that the building has very high ceilings, I think it helps with the noise levels. I would definitely recommend BJ’s and we will be back to eat there again.

There was 1 issue with the appetizer that the server took and made it right. A server is the last quality control in the product delivered. The issue was not evident on the surface but internal. The server took ownership of the problem and made it right.

The server was given the full tip just because they took ownership of the issue. While the appetizer was removed from the check I added the appetizer back for the tip. Mainly the way it was handled by the server.

I will ask for this server on my next visit.

The soup and salad were disgusting. Old wilted lettuce and the ribs of the lettuce were left in, croutons were soggy and the shredded parmesan cheese was on the bottom of the bowl and the soup tasted like wallpaper paste. Waitress never came by to check how the meal was then when she did I pointed out the terrible meal. Manager came by to apologize but with all that is going on in the world, you would think the meals would be exceptional as they need the business to come back. They offered a free dessert....big deal. Not the best service or food.
