Visited 3/17/17. First stop after getting off the airplane from Southern IL/Western KY. Wasn't really hungry, decided to have an appetizer and a beer. They don't sell Miller Lite so tried a Big Wave draft beer and a flat bread appetizer. I didn't look through the menu too much. Was tired from flying. Will try this place again if I'm... More

Appetizers are REALLY good! To share with a house beer! Perfect place to hang out after work! Wide variety of beers and appetizers.

I gotta say, this place was jumpin' on a Wednesday nigh! We waited less tha 15 minutes for a table and didn't have to wait long for the sever to attend to us. As this is a chain restaurant, the menu is pretty consistent from area to area, but be warned...the selection is enormous! As usual, food and drink were... More

For cheap chain food, this was ok but not great. The stout was yummy. The service was terrible - and, at my hotel, everyone who worked there said "omg, the service there is so bad" - ideally someone will fix this, because it is fixable. Veggies overcooked, entree - unclear it was actually what I ordered, other than yes it... More

I have been patronizing BJ's since the late 90's on SoCal and in Oregon. First time at this location. They execute very well with a good food program and an OUTSTANDING Beer program (thanks Alex P, if you are still around). There for a business lunch this time and the service was great. It amazes me how consistent this chain... More

Calamari was very salty..menu has changed since the last time we were there. Not a very good selection for dinner. This place is always busy though and sometimes wait can be really long. Our server was great but the front desk person wasn't very friendly. They don't really have to be but this person did not even smile or look... More

Arrived in time to have seats in bar area. It was apparent that there was a shortage of help, so we were patient. Food & service was excellent. When we left, the line was out the door.
