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.

    I have a mixed review of tonight's food. The new $13 meals are great and a good value. We order a cheeseburger from this menu and the French fries were hot, a little crunch and great taste. They were able to prepare without salt, for a heart healthy alternative. Unfortunately, this evening the tri-tip portion was smaller than usual and was served with a very small portion of asparagus, that even the server had commented how small the portion was. The server brought out a small dish with a few more spears of asparagus. The food tasted great all around.

    The meal was delicious and I loved the food. I’m always pleased to eat at a BJ’s and am so impressed by how fresh and delicious the food is especially for such a large chain.

    Unfortunately, we ordered 2 burger meals, both ordered med. 1 came raw, one came burnt. Onion rings with burnt burger were lukewarm French fries with raw burger were cold. This was really a disappointment as we consider BJ’s a go to restaurant. Hope love you it was just a bad night for the chefs.

    Reservation noted our party had a person with autism. Despite reservation and being on time we’re told the wait is 15-20 minutes. Our family couldn’t wait the 17 minutes it took to be seated past our 6pm reservation. We left and went elsewhere to the adjacent Surfer Crab.

    Awful experience. My 6yr old daughter and I were looking forward to a fun dinner. We were put at a booth quickly (we had reservation), and the waitress was pleasant. That’s about the best part of dinner. We ordered 1 pizza and kids chicken tenders, 1 adult drink and 1 kids lemonade. The drinks came out after a few minutes, but the food took a looooong time, and both meals were barely warm once they arrived. We said nothing and decided to just eat the food. I also ordered another beverage when the food arrived. We ate for about 10-15 minutes, I ate half the pizza and my daughter at some fries and a single chicken tender. We were still eating and my daughter needed to use the restroom. I walked her to the bathroom where she spent a few minutes, and we returned to the table. The restaurant cleared our table!!! Everything was gone. The pizza, her fries and chicken, everything. “Daddy, they took our food!” We were literally away from the table for maybe 4 minutes. I had not seen our server for quite a while, so I flagged another and requested our server and the manager. I respectfully but firmly explained to the manager what happened; from the cold food, to the clearing of our table, and to the drink I ordered that still hadn’t arrived. He was apologetic, and had new food made and brought to us, along with some dessert. They also took care of the bill. It was a kind gesture, but still a terrible experience.

    Chips and Salsa- salsa has to be canned, tasted like ketchup with pepper.Most of the chips were broken. Did get another bowl with *mostly* intact chips. Service was good considering the crowd. Flatbread missing cheese and toppings at ends of bread. Disappointing. Thank you for the Father’s Day glasses.

    The selection is broad (something for everyone), the food is excellent, the portions are huge (assume you will have two meals from one entree), and in that context the prices are fair. Great staff doing their best to take care of all guests on a VERY busy Father's Day. We come here regularly.
