The entire place needed a good scrubbing although the... More

Went here recently for breakfast/lunch. Ordered the standard breakfast - which was good. It was busy, so the wait was longer but the server/chef was apologetic and nice. Clean and charming, food was good and so was the price.

While waiting for ice cream, the server picked an onion ring off the floor and put it back on the serving tray. What goes on behind the scenes? Won't be back.

Food was great, service was very nice and bathrooms were clean. It was a tad pricey for pancakes and grilled cheese but everyone was happy. We enjoyed sitting on the porch watching all the traffic go by.

We were going in for a quick lunch, ordered a burger and chicken sandwich. Burger tasted awful and chicken was fried with oil that tasted like fish and the fries tasted like fish, obviously they had not changed the oil in some time.

Stopped in for a quick bite before the SWS show in Bala. Burgers are very good, especially the Bala burger (cheese, bacon, mushrooms and onions marinated in red wine). Fries are very tasty too!

I have memories of going to this place for the past 20 years. It's a Bala staple. Now it seems that quality control has slipped and this place needs a reboot. Bee Jays has gotten slow and overpriced. The guy in cash didn't answer questions he just pointed at signs: Q-"Hey what's on the Bala Burger"? A- "all our burgers... More

During our recent vacation at a cottage on six mile lake, we decided to go to this charming looking restaurant. My husband and I both had hamburgers which were very tasty! We sat on the porch at a comfy bright red picnic table. Would recommend this restaurant.

Went to BJ's last week with some friends, One cheeseburger, order of onion rings and a shake were $19.00. It's a good thing the food was good, even if it was overpriced. The young girls working there were friendly. The older woman however was not. I noticed that the bun I was served had some mold on it. I explained... More
