Average to a little above in most departments. Service is one area where they are above average. The food is ok but nothing spectacular. Noise canbe a problem

BJ's was recommended by our guide at My Old Kentucky Home. Nice laid back comfortable atmosphere. Hubby had their signature bean soup with corn bread, excellent. I had the chicken walnut salad, also very good. Finished off our meal with the warm bourbon pecan pie which was TO DIE FOR! Prices VERY REASONABLE too. Highly recommend!

We went between lunch and dinner. Maranda our server was very good, made some fine recommendations. I ordered the rib eye and it was cooked perfectly medium rare, with the onion rings. Steak was melt in your mouth. Salad was fresh and crisp. Husband had chicken sandwich and salad with "green" ranch dressing that they make homemade. We will go... More

BJ's is a little out of the way to find, but I would say it is worth looking. We went on a Thursday evening, and there were few empty seats. The salad was served on a cold plate with homemade salad dressings. The steak and baked potato were very good, for a $15 meal. The only improvement I could recommend... More

This was our first visit to BJ's. It was clean and had some ambience. Best of all, the food was delicious and reasonably priced. Those of us having steak agreed they were tender and cooked perfectly to order. The fish fillet covered almost half the plate and very tasty. The shrimp were just great and were sizable. However there were... More

I had chicken the first night and steak the second night which was fork tender. It was the small sirloin, and it was cooked perfectly. The steakhouse now celebrates Christmas in July so it was decorated for Christmas when I was there. It was beautiful.

I'll start by saying there is nothing great or really bad about this place. The steak salad I had was good and worth the price. The drinks were readily available and decent prices. I did notice a large local presence and it was a constant flow of people. The most frustrating part was the service from the waitress. It truly... More

Nothing is the same. Servers seem unhappy. Food just so-so and I won't go back for a while. Closed on Sunday's and this was Bardstown premium restaurant.
