We have BJs in Indiana, but the food, service and atmosphere here in Gainesville is excellent. We love the wide variety of entrees offered, and the Roasted Brussel Sprouts are the BEST! Very nice and clean restaurant....don't pass it up!

Our family absolutely loves bjs but for some reason last 2 times service not so good, food under cooked. Today bjs resumes it's former glory in our eyes. Erich K was awesome in every way with superior service, food was perfectly prepared. All around a great night. Thanks Erich!

I do not normally review chain restaurants, but will for this excellent eatery. First it is stunningly beautiful. Second the hospitality is exceptional; all the staff seem to go out of their way to make you feel at home. The fare is diverse and offers something for almost everyone. The housemate brews are great. A comprehensive list of wines and... More

I had never eaten here before but had heard good things so we decided to try it for dinner. The food was great! My only complaint was the service was very slow. So in saying that, let me say our waitress was running all over the place so it was my opinion that it must be the kitchen itself that... More

BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse is a chain with about 170 locations nationwide. They feature an unremarkable selection of “craft brews” that can get boring very fast. The food is exactly what one would expect – shopping mall excitement delivered by overworked, undertrained servers. I’ve relied on BJ’s for those occasional business lunches or early casual dinners where I want to... More

We like this chain, since there's a good variety on the menu, even healthy, diet-friendly options. The service was fast and friendly.

We have been to BJ's in three different cities. The menu is creative and the food and drinks are always good. Unfortunately, the kitchen was apparently having an off day. We were past the prime lunch hour so they were not overwhelmed, but it was very, very s-l-o-w. Good thing we were not in a rush. Our server was pleasant,... More

They cater to male customers only. Try and ask to turn one TV in the whole restaurant to the news. Apparently female money is not welcome here.

This was a great place to hang out election night and enjoy time with friends. The food and service is so dependably good at this chain, regardless of location, that it is becoming my restaurant of choice. Roasted Brussel sprouts are a meal for me and a friend had the ahi salad --- nightly drink specials are a plus for... More
