Stopped for dinner and a few beers after work. Surprisingly good selection of beers. Really enjoyed their own IPA. Decent priced and HUGE servings. Went all in for a set menu and had to yield both on the food and the pizooke (never happens).... and not because of taste :-0 Recommended.

When we arrived we noticed it was a smaller Bj's restaurant than normal. When asked to be seated, they asked inside or outside that outside was heated. So we said outside. The heaters weren't on, it was very cold. Bout 20 mins outside they put the heaters on. My son had a chocolate milk and said it tasted funny so... More

It's hard to find a place to eat for a family when one of your family members has celiac and needs a GF menu. BJ's is great for everyone, and even has a GF Pazooki desert!!!

Stopped here for a late dinner. As far as such places go, it was good enough. The pizza is good, but average - nothing special. I had my heart set on a cocktail, only to find out they have no bar - only wine and beer. I ordered a sampler of four of their craft beers, which were OK, but... More

Order a double burger with fries, quantity was good and very tasty. The order arrived in a reasonable time (around 7 min) while I was having a beer. However it came cold!!!

Surprised this place isn't ranked higher and surprised it's never really busy when I'm there (multiple locations). The pizza is superb. Deep dish and flavorful but not greasy at all. Highly recommend!

Overall its not something... More

The in-house deluxe pizza was very good. They ran out of the kids ribs, which was disappointing. The kids grilled cheese was loaded with stretchy cheese. The kale and brussel sprouts salad was refreshing, and big enough to share as a starter or eat as a meal.

One of my very favourite places to have a real Chicago style deep-dish pizza! I have been coming here since my college days in the early 80s and no other pizza restaurant has come close to this one! I highly recommend BJs NOT only for their pizza, but for their great menu choices! My husband also ADORES BJs pizza, too!... More

What a luscious 'mahi-mahi' dish for the palate I had at this good restaurant. Friendly, helpful and polite server who lessened the volume of the loud music upon request. Indeed another place to have a gratifying 'chow time.'
