What is BJ's?

BJ's Restaurants serve quality food and fresh, handcrafted beers in a casual, high-energy atmosphere. Our restaurant team members exude a warm, friendly and energetic spirit that conveys a sense of honest value and a commitment to exceed the expectations of our guests. We have a lively bar with plenty of televisions throughout the restaurant, but we're not a "sports bar." We offer our unique handcrafted beer, but we're not a "brew pub." We're just a high-energy, casual dining restaurant that offers quality food and handcrafted beer at a good value to our guests. BJ's offer a high-quality, extensive (approximately 100 items) menu featuring BJ's signature deep dish pizza, complemented by generously portioned salads, sandwiches, soups, pasta, entrées, snacks and small bites, our own line of handcrafted microbrewed beers and of course our famous Pizookie® dessert. Quality, flavor, value, moderate prices and sincere service remain distinct attributes of the BJ's experience. BJ's is popular with all ages – kids, families, young adults, "baby boomers" and senior citizens – and all income levels. Our average check per guest is about the same (or less) than what you would pay for an average experience at one of the "mass market" casual dining restaurants. The difference is that at BJ's we believe you get much more for your money!

What is the difference between BJ's Pizza & Grill, BJ's Restaurant & Brewery and BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse?

In 1978 our first restaurant opened in Santa Ana, California and was called "BJ's Chicago Pizzeria." The unique deep dish pizza was an immediate hit and additional "Pizzeria" restaurants were opened in beach cities along Southern California's coastline from San Diego to Los Angeles.

As the years went by, significant changes were made to the BJ's menu and the name was consequently revised to “BJ's Pizza & Grill.” Then in 1996 the first large-format restaurant was opened in Brea, California. The introduction of fine handcrafted beers was welcomed by guests and the newly renamed "BJ's Restaurant & Brewery" concept was launched.

Most of our restaurants do not have on-site breweries. Instead they have energetic bars with dozens of craft beers on tap - both BJ's award winning handcrafted beers and the finest craft beers available. These large-format restaurants operate under the name "BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse."

New menu items and new beers have been added over the years as the BJ's brand has expanded throughout the United States.
