My family really enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant, especially eating outside under the heaters on a cool evening. Food was good enough. The pizzookies were great.

Most pleasant experience. BJ's Brewery/Restaurant large, very clean and a great staff. The service is excellent and the menu quite large and varied.

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant on a whim on a business trip to La Jolla. The deep dish pizza and chicken pot stickers were amazing. The service was attentive and our glasses were never empty. I highly recommend a visit.

My husband and I had occasion to visit The Shops at La Jolla and what to our surprise did we find --- a renovated and updated B J Brewery. The new facility is great --- private booths that are both private and open; tv's pleasantly placed (not overwhelming); large menu with calorie count and most of alll GOOD FOOD and... More

Stopped for dinner and a few beers after work. Surprisingly good selection of beers. Really enjoyed their own IPA. Decent priced and HUGE servings. Went all in for a set menu and had to yield both on the food and the pizooke (never happens).... and not because of taste :-0 Recommended.

When we arrived we noticed it was a smaller Bj's restaurant than normal. When asked to be seated, they asked inside or outside that outside was heated. So we said outside. The heaters weren't on, it was very cold. Bout 20 mins outside they put the heaters on. My son had a chocolate milk and said it tasted funny so... More

It's hard to find a place to eat for a family when one of your family members has celiac and needs a GF menu. BJ's is great for everyone, and even has a GF Pazooki desert!!!

Stopped here for a late dinner. As far as such places go, it was good enough. The pizza is good, but average - nothing special. I had my heart set on a cocktail, only to find out they have no bar - only wine and beer. I ordered a sampler of four of their craft beers, which were OK, but... More

Order a double burger with fries, quantity was good and very tasty. The order arrived in a reasonable time (around 7 min) while I was having a beer. However it came cold!!!
