The food and selection at BJ's in the Tanforan Mall is outstanding. Went there for dinner and had to wait. There were a lot of locals both young and old waiting for a table. Which is a good sign. If the restaurant were bad it would have been empty. There is a sports bar where you can catch the sports... More

We had dinner here one evening while in San Mateo on business. They've got one of the biggest menus that I've ever seen! I ended up getting the fish and chips and it was delicious! The staff was friendly and efficient too. Everyone in our party was happy with their meal. I would definitely dine here again!

Went here a couple of times for dinner and it's a nice place with a good atmosphere. I like their lower alcohol home brew beer - tastes great. Had the spicy peanut chicken with soba noddles which were excellent. Also tried the house special pizza which wasn't bad. It gets busy so you may have to wait for a table... More

Invited our CIO's assistant for a working lunch after one long year of hard work. The service was quick. With a very short wait, we had our calamari ready. Crispy and tasty. I was looking for some healthy salad but quickly abandoned the idea when I saw Bjs Bacon Cheeseburger($9.95). I can't skip this: grilled bun with applewood smoked bacon,... More

Handcrafted beer, lots of TV's and a crowded bar - sometimes hard to get a seat, service is spotty. That being said, food is good too - Flat bread Pizza was great! If what you want is a 'sports bar' kind of environment but with better food, this is the place.

If you would like a rowdy place to eat and enjoy Mediterranean-style meal - be it salad or pizza - this is the place for you. It's a fast-paced sports bar with delicious food to munch on and cheer on your favorite team. Come enjoy the fun and the good eats!

Almost every time I come here there is about a 10 to 30 minute wait. The food is consistent and for a "chain" restaurant it is above average. It is a bit noisy for s meeting but great for friends and family.

We usually go to BJ's for happy in the middle of the week. The price is good and they have a good selection of food on the happy hour menue. The food is fine and the service is somewhat good. It is mainly for the younger crowd.
