We went to BJ's when it opened and was astonished as to how many dishes had 1000's of calories, that was 3 years ago. After a movie the other night we decided to try again, because it was close. The menu had added many items with fewer calories. Food was good and wine excellent. If you have stopped going there,... More

We've been to BJs fairly often and like it for casual dining fare. Our favorites are the jalapeno burger and the spare ribs. Fair pricing and decent service are worth the visit. Nothing fancy yet always tasty. The Jeremiah Red beer is consistently good.

Two of us had dinner on November 7, on a Monday night. My Son had the sirloin steak with baked potato. I had the ribs, mashed potato and wedge salad. His steak was under cooked but quickly corrected. Baked potato was perfect. Being from Texas, I thought the ribs had a tasty sauce but average. Not bad but not mesquite... More

We stopped for lunch on our way to Northern California. We had a Santa Fe salad and fish tacos. The food was fresh and well prepared. Fish tacos were especially good.

We had drinks here last weekend and dinner last night. The restaurant is large and has a nice interior. The first time we came we sat in the bar and had a drink and a couple of plates of fried calamari. They have multiple big screen TVs and you can see just about any live sporting event on mainstream media.... More

We have eaten at numerous BJ's in many states as there is always something good to eat (vegetarian and carnivore). This was our 2nd visit to this particular location and we were disappointed on both occasions by the service. On both occasions there was a protracted delay after we were seated before we had a server take our drink orders.... More

Stopped here during a road trip. Very consistent with other BJ's we've been to. It was clean, menu offers a great variety to choose from. I like that the calorie counts were listed on the menu. We were not charged for an order of fries that took a long time to get. I appreciated that. The waiter was very good.

We were looking for someplace to eat and happened upon this place. We ordered pizza and beer. We were shocked that they were very delicious. We ate at this place three times that week. It is an upscale modernly decorated venue with a large bar. They have many of their own brews on tap (of which BJ's Hefeweizen wheat beer... More
