Have been with bus groups several times here and they have taken good care of us each time. Great variety of buffer items, well stocked and hot. Plenty of room to accommodate a group and not interfere with the regular clientele. Friendly staff keep your beverages filled answer questions willingly and knowledgeably.

The buffet bar has VERY FEW items that are actually made in house. The only thing on the entire buffet was was fairly good was the ranch salad dressing. If you ask the wait staff they will bring you warm bread. I have nothing good to say and will never eat here again.

My husband and I were proud to hold my daughter's wedding reception at BJ's Restaurant Sunday, 9-04-2016. I had talked to Susan a few months before the reception and a couple of times before the actual event. Susan was extremely dependable and accommodating as we planned this special day. I honestly couldn't ask for a more helpful planner than she... More

We came her for Mother's Day and enjoyed the breakfast buffet. The food was good, a nice spread of things to choose from, and our waitress was very nice.

Great customer service. The buffet was excellent. The happy hour specials are delicious. The nacho plate was truly a great plate. It had refried beans, three types of nacho chips and all the great stuff you expect on nachos. Salso and sour cream was also good. Our waitress was very accommodating. Would recommend highly.
