We went here on a Friday night for the dinner buffet. The price was very reasonable and the buffet area was immaculate and well looked after by staff. There was a wide variety of food. I tried the baked fish and found it to be free of bones, flaky and tasty. The mashed potatoes were yummy and so were the... More

My husband and I were proud to hold my daughter's wedding reception at BJ's Restaurant Sunday, 9-04-2016. I had talked to Susan a few months before the reception and a couple of times before the actual event. Susan was extremely dependable and accommodating as we planned this special day. I honestly couldn't ask for a more helpful planner than she... More

We came her for Mother's Day and enjoyed the breakfast buffet. The food was good, a nice spread of things to choose from, and our waitress was very nice.

Great customer service. The buffet was excellent. The happy hour specials are delicious. The nacho plate was truly a great plate. It had refried beans, three types of nacho chips and all the great stuff you expect on nachos. Salso and sour cream was also good. Our waitress was very accommodating. Would recommend highly.

While recently visiting the area, went to BJ's for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. All four of us got the buffet and was pleasantly surprised by the variety of options, particularly meats. There were multiple ways that chicken, fish, shrimp and pork was available...plus roast beef. Plus a full salad bar with a selection of homemade salads. There was so... More

We always stop into BJs for breakfast and it's always great. They allow my wife and I to order from the menu and they allow the kids to get the buffet - and it's all great. Really to me it's the servers that set this place apart...they're all awesome.

My family ate at BJs after the alpenfest. They were very busy so we decided to have their buffet. My wife asked how much the buffet was for the 2 youngest kids ages 7 and 8 she said 4.99. My wife and older daughter wanted the buffet with the crab legs $29,99. The 2 younger kids wanted them also so... More
