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.

    Really slow service, brought out my son’s meal 15 min after the rest of the table with no apology, and no ketchup. Salad served with no utensils

    There were nine of us on a busy Saturday night. Lots of large parties. The food was overall good. They do impose an automatic 18% tip. I rated the service poor because the waits between ordering drinks and getting them, ordering food and getting it, asking for the check and receiving it, etc., were way too long. But I think they simply didn’t have enough staff. I felt sorry for our server. He and the others were busting their humps. So management, I hope you can add to your staff soon!

    Yes it was a busy Friday night. Reservations were at 630p. By 8p we still had no food. Very little interaction with staff. We were there for a birthday party. No one offered cake plates until we had already cut and ate the cake. Only good part of the evening was the food was good when it finally arrived

    Absolutely horrible experience. Service was terrible. We had to keep asking for assistance such as water refills, drink refills. Food was cold or meat uncooked. Had to send back three meals because they were not cooked. Some meals never came or were late arriving and cold when they did arrive. Was over charged meals that we did not order. Had to speak with two managers before we had our bill modified. Unbelievable. I hope this is a one time incident. From the looks of some reviews it is not. No we will not be back.

    The food took a long time to arrive, some of the food items were cold. Drinks came out fast. We didn’t get a kids menu until we placed our order (we didn’t even know they had any as we weren’t offered before). The clam chowder didn’t come with the bread bowl and we didn’t get an explanation (we very obviously ordered the clam chowder in a bread bowl). The waiters seemed to be doing their best but seemed very overwhelmed and possibly understaffed in the kitchen. Wouldn’t return or recommend.

    The La Mesa staff is always friendly and professional. The staff checks on you just enough to make sure your drink and food order is to your expectations. The food always arrives on time , is made as expected and our party of 4 adults enjoyed what they ordered on this visit.
