We were traveling on business and stopped in for a quick lunch. The menu is large and the prices are reasonable. The service was good and it was a nice atmosphere. The restaurant was crowded but we were still able to have lunch for three people and were out of there within 45 minutes. Two of us had pizza flatbread and one of us had a salad. All of the food was very good. It's in a good location and I would certainly visit again.

Food is not bad either. They need to do something about the fruit flies in the bar but otherwise, it's a common stop when in town.

Visited BJ's on two occassions, both times eating at the bar. The restaurant is always busy, but the food is good and the service is good.

Food and beer are good, the service was very bad. Our waiter was not attentive to our table and had no original thoughts for menu selections. It was our first time at this location, have visited other stores all over and have never had this type of service, will have to think twice about returning.

We have come here a few times and we enjoy the food and beer. I am a big fan of Big Poppa Smokers and heard recently that BJ's was using some of BPS recipes for there Blue Ribbon BBQ. Big Poppa won the Royal Oak last year, so good BBQ was to be expected.

We decided to try the Blue Ribbon BBQ combo plate for 2. The Baby Back Ribs and 1/2 chicken with the SWEET MONEY CHAMPIONSHIP rub were awesome. The ribs were a bit dry, but the chicken was super moist and flavorful. That rub really is Money. Had anohter helping of the Fries with Jallelujah Seasoned Jalapeno Salt, WOW! The cole slaw also looked like it was hand chopped. Nice touch.

We will be back!
