Awesome place, our waiter (Joseph) was super cool, helpful, and really attentive, gave really good honest suggestions to their foods, and it was a really good experience, I would really recommend this place to anyone.

Food was at least what you'd expect, but when it comes to actually being served the food you ordered please be prepared to wait and wait and wait. You may just have to tell a bus boy to get your waiter after 15 to 20 minutes which is totally not acceptable. If you like to wait, hey BJ's is your place. But if you enjoy and appreciate good and prompt service don't waste your time here, try another Bj's or there is Lazy Dogs right in the same parking lot and their awesome.

they have a good beer selection and the pizza is good. It is so noisy though.

Some companies get it and others don't. Some things are convenient and others not so much. As many of you know BJ's can be hit or miss in terms of wait/service. Case in point. I've literally come during a rush and been told 30 minute wait, driven to another BJ's 30 miles away and been seated and eating before my friends who I left there was. That's the kind of massive discrepancies you'll find at some BJ's. It's very area and time dependent. As an early adopter I'm all over online ordering, mobile apps and of course rewards programs. Chipotle gets it, easy, fast, quick to navigate, accurate, convenient. BJ's online ordering is the exact opposite. Their large menu is not intuitive, it's not fast, it's accurate, but when you pull up into curb side and call in, maybe they pick up, maybe they don't. Maybe the ticket on your foot says 21 minutes before pick up and maybe your food comes out 14 minutes late. Maybe you eventually come inside and see the dining room pretty empty. Who knows. I haven't and certainly don't have the time to track and document the rushes here, but I can tell you if you want to get back to work in a reasonable hour and think that curbside or ordering ahead will work. It will not. As with most BJ's the food is solid. You can't really complain as their menu selection is good and they have solid items and great beer pairings. It's not a sports bar despite their full bar and TV's and dark wood. It's not the cheesecake factory with their way too big a menu and lack of more salt of the earth items. My go to items are the avocado egg rolls and santa fe spring rolls, balance, bold and I like the avo cream sauce for both, when fresh are excellent appetizers, seared ahi tuna salad and a cocktail or craft beer. Don't expect too much local, but I'm a fan of their Tatonka stout. They have a very middle eastern seaboard brewing style across their in house offerings. Love the craft root beer, but too bad it's not free refills. Nothing is overly hopped (except Hopstorm), seasoned, roasted or IBU'd so it's a basic, but full offering. Service is ok, it's pretty good when you come here late or early, but in between, forget about it. Staff is very polite and usually apologetic so I generally sit at the bar for faster more attentive service. Classic dark wood, wall window ambiance. I dig the gluten free menu options and the small bites offerings. Spinach stuffed mushrooms have tons of flavor packed in single bite sized eats. Baked, not fried. Fried artichoke hearts with just lemon are just fine, no need for aioli aka mayonnaise. Don't get the mac and cheese, it's a kinds of failure. Something about the mixture of meats and cheese for a deep dish really separates the supreme pepperoni from the veggie options. The classic is ideal for the sausage. It's maybe kinda close to the style they do in Chicago, but very corporatized. Burgers are ok, tons of fries, but it ain't no red robin, they need work. Higher heat, better meat mixture, the burgers are well put together. I prefer the pork chops over the steaks because honestly if it aint prime steak it's not worthy. The pork chops are almost never dry and it's a hearty meal. Spaghetti and meat sauce are pretty solid a backup when carb loading. Appetizers are pretty large in general and shareable which is why the small bites are so good for those who eat alone. Pizookie is excellent, even to go. A must try is the salted caramel with the extra caramel sauce. Literally this 1 item is the saving grace to an otherwise mediocre restaurant. I'll keep coming back for that alone, love the 3 pack, but a variety sampler of all would be great, sure you can do it on your own, but ordering is a pain online like this. They are open late so your ideal is for people who get out of work late or those looking to wind down with a nightcap, but more often than not the experience will keep them mediocre.

Do not go here if you have a large party (more than 6). I've been to several BJ's before across the country and they never give large parties the attention and service they give smaller parties. We waited almost 30 minutes to order and over an hour after that to even receive our food. The food is not anything to brag about, just typical chain restaurant food. Overpriced and not worth the 3 hours we sat there. Plus the "adult beverages" are ridiculously expensive and useless. The beer is good, but you can get good beer at other places and not wait 3 hours.

BJs Tustin Marketplace is my go to spot for lunch or dinner. Great food, great value, and awesome service. And don't forget to sample their craft beers. Just tried their new seasonal Oktoberfest amber lager -- very good. I also recommend the Light Switch for the light beer drinkers or their Hopstorm IPA if you're in the mood for a really good pale ale. Great place for a business lunch, date night, or just a casual night out with friends. I highly recommend this place!

I like it here! It is a fun place to go get a bite to eat. Price is kinda high but it's not bad. I went to another location and liked it a lot better. Service was not the best here, took long and the lady was a little rude. It was a busy night so that could be why. Not sure if I will take another chance to find out though! I like BJ's but I will stick to another location.
