We usually make it to BJ's Brewhouse several times a month... The food is great and service is usually awesome (at least at the bar). Tatonka has become my go to beer 🍻!!!

My family and I came in for lunch this weekend and were very impressed. The staff was very nice and efficient. The food was just as good, maybe better. We ordered the sample platter, which was perfect for all 5 of us. I also must mention the bloody mary's are delicious! I think it is Sunday's that they are $4,... More

2 hour wait after being told 1hour. 10 more minutes, 10 more minutes, over and over. Slow service due to not enough staff. 4 of 13 of us liked their food. GREASY burgers, tasteless pasta. How do you wreck the taste of pizza? Overpriced, mediocre food. Not going there again.

We really enjoy BJ's. The food is really good and so is the service. We've tried quite a variety of dining options from their menu. We even went to the beer pairing dinner. It was very good. They gave a lot of information and were very helpful. They will also go out of their way to help patrons with their... More

Took our grandkids here for lunch yesterday, and was somewhat disappointed. Got seated quickly, and our server was prompt and pleasant. Too bad the food didn't measure up to what we consider BJ's normal standards (at least in San Diego and Vacaville). Appetizers were good. I had the barbacoa chicken, which was, overall, pretty dry and tasteless; granddaughter had the... More

Good food with very large selection and big portions. Great beer selection with lots of variety. Nice ambience, classy casual. The only con was the mediocre service we recieved. Our waiter was nice but wasn't really available, and the place wasn't busy at all. Even with the poor service it's a must visit place when in Modesto.

Visited for lunch on a Wednesday 11.15 AM, no waiting seated expeditiously, great service, extensive menu, reasonably priced, good sized portions, T. V.'s throughout showing sports. Try the grilled cheese, w/Havarti cheese, tomato, avocado on grilled sourdough and fries. A real treat, in pleasant surroundings.

There are very few restaurants that can successfully seat a group of more than 8. Usually it is terrible service and one check with 20% added for tip. Many times I have walked in with a group of 16 or more, eaten hot food, and had pretty great service. The menu is huge and there are things in all price... More

Our server was really great. The food was good. I had a berry cider beer and it was quite good! The server said it was sweet, but it was perfect. Apple ciders are too sweet, and this beer was perfect. My steak was good, the potatoes were pretty good, the asparagus was ok. The woody ends weren't cut off and... More

faced with another decision which involved driving somewhere else, hungry and cranky, we "girls" from the Motherlode, left Chico's and "settled" for BJ's. I had never eaten there and was prepared for another glorified coffee shop/hamburger joint, but one friend in particular said she had never had a bad meal at BJ's. Well, the place is so pretty and CLEAN.... More
