Used to be one of my favorites. Nowadays, it's just a mediocre place. Service is slow. Food is average. Wait time to be seated is longer. C+

I have been there for happy hours, ours a good deal to have some appetizers and try out their own brewed beers. Great service, great food, great environment. Their chicken wings are so juicy, it pairs well with a cold beer, the seared ahi tuna was one of the best I've ever tried. Ask for the beer samples (our come... More

Me and my family went here after being delayed on our flight to San Fran. It was in the middle of the night and they were still open and very friendly and we had great service! They had so many different options on everything! I totally recommend:)

Big place, lots of TVScreens to entertain you. Classic menu and lots of "crafty" beers. Service was friendly but very slow. Drins and food took a long time to be served. We had Nachos with our beers to munch, which were good.

What can I say: This is BJs and I absolutely LOVE BJs. I had never been to this one since we are from Southern Calif but this was a wonderful treat. The structure is bigger than ours back home; nice and roomy. The food of course was wonderful and delicious as always. I had pizza - a New "California" one... More

Good food and great service specifically at Bar area tables, during 12 noon to 3 pm. Happy hour specials both food and drinks are more than reasonable. The bar staff is consistently fast, efficient and professional, both male and female bartenders. Lots of parking, shopping right there as well. The wait staff in the bar area designated for dining are... More

Got seated right away. Waitress was friendly and took order quickly. Food took a bit to come out but was good. It took a bit to get my check. I would say overall service was average nothing remarkable

The food is perfectly fine, but I think it's over priced for the type of food they serve. Bar is good, but often can't find a bar seat. It's always crowded because it's in the mall. I've had to walk away because I was quoted an hour wait for a table for two and no seats at the bar. (It... More
