Plenty of options on the menu, almost overwhelming, but it captures all palates. Everyone in our group all agreed the food was really good. Our server was incredible, on point, friendly and above and beyond. Very large dining area that can accommodate larger groups and a good size bar area. Plenty of TVs throughout. There's also an outdoor patio. Of... More

Just left BJ's. Not one to leave negative reviews, but we sat for 25 minutes and had no service. A half dozen waiters walked by, but no one picked up that we hadn't been helped. Poor form, they just lost a customer.

When I first looked through the menu I was taken back by how expensive the food items were compared to other BJ locations. But once the food arrived, I was delighted by how large the portions were! My waiter was attentive and never left my drink glass empty. Left full and highly satisfied! The items pictured were appetizers!

Went here with my grandchildren who are adults. We had a really good time. It was a last minute decision but we were very pleased. The service was excellent and the food was very good. We have eaten here before and are never disappointed.

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
