Time counts at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse. Since our humble beginnings back in 1978, we've continued to refine our brewhouse experience to make BJ's a place where you can make the most of any meal. We want BJ's to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail. Our guests come here for our award-winning handcrafted beer. They come here for the Southern California twist we've put on the Chicago-style deep dish pizza. And they come here for our Pizookies®, our world-renowned dessert. But above all we know people come here to make their good times better. So in many ways we haven't just crafted a brand, but a mindset. And our guests are the reason for this. And it's because of them we're continually striving to make sure every moment they choose to spend with us counts. Welcome to BJ's, a restaurant with a Brewhouse soul.

Service was outstanding and food was delicious. Social distancing measures changed the normal atmosphere but were reasonable.

We went to BJ’s as our first dining out restaurant because we love this place. We had the best experience! The food and service were top notch! Everyone was on top of the job, very clean and quickly done. We will most definitely be returning. Thank you for a great experience!

We ordered Calamari and Tortilla Soup to share and both were outstanding. We then both ordered Ahi Tuna salads - The Tuna was high quality, the ingredients were plentiful and the salad dressing was great. The restaurant was close to our home and we had made 2pm reservations. We waited less than 5 minutes to be seated and the server was very prompt and personable.

I find I get a pretty consistent experience at each BJ's restaurants that I visit but the Temecula location as well as the Corona location (Corona Crossings) always seem a little better.

Staff, food and beer selections are always top notch and rotate through several changes for each season. Always got my favorite foods and beverages!

Thanks to having a reservation we were seated right away while
Others were waiting. Waiter was attentive. Appetizer came out immediately. Dinner was served quickly. As was dessert. New way of paying by scanning receipt was awesome, I can see this as being a benefit in the future too.
They are definitely abiding by social distancing although I have no concerns, feel bad they cannot serve more people.

Boneless wings were delicious, Mediterranean pita tacos delicious, and seating was actually nice with every other table available. Reservations actually made the whole experience nice under the circumstances, because I like the walk in method and get seated. Nice overall.

The service was absolutely horrible. Was there to celebrate my birthday and they never brought out any dessert for my birthday at the end when I specifically requested it. I had reservations and they didn't have a table ready. Once they finally sat us, they put us at a table to small for 7 people. There was no room to put everyone's food on the table. I don't recommend ever coming here for dinner. Huge disappointment.

Even with the pending holiday, service was great. Chose this restaurant because of the variety of food items and was not disappointed. Will use them whenever I have a group to feed. Never lets me down. Wish I could remember the gal that served us, even with several large groups, she did a super job.

Absolutely enjoyed our visit to Temecula's BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse. Kaitlin was our server and she took very excellent care of our party of six. Kaitlin and her colleagues were very helpful in providing and securing a booster seat for a very active 2-year old who also managed to spill water on the floor. The staff members immediately remedied the situation and still managed to leave with a smile on both their faces as well as ours. Additionally, the manager was aware that we needed a wheelchair friendly location and she even arranged for us to leave the restaurant with minimal maneuvers to navigate through a fast filling restaurant brimming with customers.

It is no wonder this BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse location is a favorite choice for dining.

Thank you and well done to all staff members that evening.

We were a party of 6, with a reservation for 5 pm, seated at the smallest circular booth just behind the hostess station. But to complicate things the table had no room and our waitress just piled things on top of things! She cleared very little quickly.
My daughter (seated across the table ) and I shared the bbq chopped salad and said it many times. With this tiny table she didn’t have the good sense to split it for us but I ended with all the onion garb and it was a mess and ruined the salad. Very unprofessional I thought. So service kills all your other high marks.
Our waitress was polite just not helpful.

I like BJ's. Its a step above most other chain restaurants and consistent from site to site. I like the wide variety of items that they offer on the extensive menu. They have a good selection of beer. It's a safe choice for me when I am traveling. When it's really busy, I can usually walk right in a get a seat at the bar.

Our dining experience was ruined by glaring sun coming from the revolving door. It was about 6 PM and we were sitting near the entry to the restrooms. For over 20 minutes the sun was blinding. I am sure there is some type of vinyl or coating that could be applied to the top half of the revolving glass doors. Even to just minimize the glare would be helpful. It was just miserable.

The server, only her first week, and the fourth shift working as a server, was OUTSTANDING! The food was great along with a great atmosphere. We will be back!

I have to drive a minimum of 60 miles from home to eat at one. It used to be my favorite hangout when I worked at Loma Linda University! I know of no one who have ever eaten there with me who has had a bad meal choice. LOVE it and wish you would open a chain in the Coachella Valley or Morongo Basin.

Server was great most of the meals were very good in our party of 6 . One person ordered a margarita she got a tall glass with something orange flavored in it . The server took it back and came back with the same thing and said that is what they call a margarita at BJs. Stick to the beers. 😀

My son and I enjoyed our meal and the appearance of the restaurant. Our problem was with the fact that we reserved our table online and when we arrived at the Restaurant, we were informed that their computers were down and they did not get our reservation. We had to wait until they called all the people in the lobby before we were given a table. This was unacceptable since we brought our confirmation receipt to the restaurant to show that we were confirmed. I hope that this can be remedied in the future. Thanks

The food, service and atmosphere was great. From the time we sat down to the time we were eating our meal was around 30 minutes and this was the first time we had been here so we needed extra time to look over the menu. We both were pleased with our meals and would recommend this location to anyone.

Although there were people waiting for tables, we were seated within 10 minutes. Our server was prompt and took meticulous care of our needs. My husband ordered a burger and said the meat was very dry, not the usual. My Tri-tip was tender and perfectly seasoned. Noise level was fairly intense but the restaurant was full. We always enjoy BJs Oasis! Recommend BJs for generous servings and a variety of menu offerings.

Our server, James, was excellent, friendly, and attentive. Our food came out quickly and was perfect. Our bill was very reasonable for a party of six.

There were three girls up at the hostess counter and they were preoccupied with their conversation and not as friendly as I expect hostesses to be.

Made the reservation on Open Table for a party of four. The reservation was confirmed by email. Upon arrival, we were told by the hostess that they only make reservations for parties of 7 or more although nothing was mentioned on Open Table or by the restaurant. The hostess wasn’t apologetic and simply stated that was their policy even as I showed her my confirmation.

We were seated soon after. Our waiter Travis was engaging, very knowledgeable and really made the evening enjoyable. The menu is vast with choices for everyone. Food is standard fare, good not great. Might consider returning if they resolve the reservation problems.
