I took my 5 kids out to dinner early on a Wednesday night. We arrived early, 5:45pm. Food was not bad. Service was awful. I don't think I'll be going back. I don't know if they were understaffed or what, but we didn't get our food until a full hour plus after arriving. Our waiter was nice, but was clearly overwhelmed. We sat there a long time before we were waited on. When we were finally waited on, our waiter didn't write down our orders. When the food FINALLY arrived...ages later...two of our six orders were wrong and the food was cold. We had to ask TWICE for silverware and catsup. Our silverware was brought out a full five minutes later than our food and the catsup bottle was empty. The server acted annoyed when we asked for another. One of my kids just accepted the wrong order. The other couldn't. We were told by the server that delivered the food that he would "let our server know." Ten minutes later our server came by. He said he would correct it, but it took another 15 minutes for her food to arrive. By then, we were all done. Our waiter never brought the requested drink refills. We sat there again forever waiting on our check. As soon as the waiter came with it...I was ready with my credit card. After nearly two hours, my four year old was getting extremely restless. I handed him my credit card and gave him the check back immediately. Rather than process it and finish us off, he dumped it at the register and went on to take the orders of a large party of 20+ people. By this point my four year old was going berserk. So I had to send the rest of my family to the car, while I sat there another 10-15 minutes waiting to sign my check and get my credit card back. Needless to say, we won't be going back!!!

HORRIBLE! I don't even have enough room to write all that was wrong! Food was awesome. Service was terrible. Management was nice but didn't get the job done. Server, let's call her "Gabby" for short, was rude! Never refilled our drinks. We had to wait for ice to melt before we had something to drink. When the tickets were adjusted she sat the check on the table and spun on her heels... No apologies, nothing... Again, not enough time or space for all my complaints. Perhaps getting food to go would work?!

Food is really great, the atmosphere is befitting for a restaurant with a well stocked bar and great beers. The handcrafted root beer is a surprise for me because, I've been used to other root beer that isn't made on the fly but at first sip it feels foreign. Not that it's a bad thing but after a few sips the taste is great. I would have given it five stars but the issue would be the customer service. A few days ago during the Super Bowl I was with friends and had two different waiters, who, messed up my orders and at one point, one of the servers accused me and my party of yelling when in fact she was trying avoid us even as we were asking for help. It got to the point where my party addressed this issue not once, but twice, with the manager. We try to make it easier for the waiters with their jobs but apparently my party's kindness didn't help. I would be coming back but only for a specific server because of my first experience several months ago. If it wasn't for 'her' I wouldn't bother coming back despite the great food, ale, and atmosphere.

Good food but not worth the wait time.

Old bottle of Belgian beer which was cloudy and was not supposed to be and then Stella Artois on draft served in dirty glass. Need someone to find a sharp knife in kitchen to prep tomatoes for salads. Also, the balsamic vinegar hiding under the lettuce leaf would have been a nice flavor enhancer with rest of salad above it. Greasy deep fried onions on pulled pork sandwich and a bun had been saturated with some type of oil to help in browning on griddle had a old rancid taste. Pulled pork was just cut up pieces of dubious pedigree, since there was a lack of smoke taste, pink ring, etc. Raw sweet onion rings and pickles would be a better choice as opposed to the greasey onions. Looking at the pizza's my impression was this restaurant chain needs some help in the food prep, and have some real Italian help with the Corporate Menu for the restaurant chain.

One of the best places to eat in Corpus. Granted the options are limited here IMO but the menu has a lot of variety and healthy options in addition to the standard bar food. Also, BJ's beer selection while only so-so in the DFW area is probably the best in Corpus. However, I wish there was a greater selection of Texas craft beers - a complaint I have of all BJ's restaurants. I've been eating here sometimes every week since it opened while I have been working in Corpus Christi. There have been a few times where the service was lacking. But most of the time service has been excellent. Having been here so long though I know who to ask for. :)

Great food in a beautiful restaurant. We've been there a few times and have always been impressed by the food and service. The restaurant itself is one of the best looking places in town.

I went today and the food was awesome - I had the mushroom appetizer and a large salad next with mango and chicken - it was just out of this world. I would go again - I also love the atmosphere ...
