Gotta say, the food and service here is average , ok place to dine with family, but the acoustics are way to loud to enjoy. They need some sound damping material up in the ceilings to help with all the talking and calm the room down so you can hear your parties conversation. Otherwise nice place.

One of my favorite places to visit in Oxnard.  I am always greeted when I enter, the waiters have always been friendly and attentive, and the food is excellent.  The waiters often check up on me during my meal to make sure everything is okay, and that includes on busy Friday or Saturday nights. For this visit I had the... More

Went with friends to celebrate one's birthday and had super time. BJ's has the absolute best burgers ever! Cooked to perfection, not a dried tasteless patty, but a good-sized burger cooked the way you want. Very friendly service, even with the crowd. In a shopping center, so there's a lot of parking. Big variety of dishes to suit everyone's taste.... More

Came here to celebrate Christmas with friends on a Friday night. Parking sucks so I ended up parking at Home Depot. The place is packed but the service is good. Ordered chipotle glazed salmon and I honestly enjoyed every bite of it. If you make reservations, they will only hold it for 15 minutes so make sure you arrive on... More

I think of BJs for pizza and beer. They are clearly expanding their offerings. We stopped for a quick lunch while on a road trip and had the soup and salad (my soup was the chili). At lunch, at least, refills are free. They were doing quite a business on a Friday for lunch.

So we got here at 5:30 ish for a 6 party of 12 or so. We tried to make a reservation, and were asked why we didn't. We waited a bit to be seated, grabbed a drink at the bar the bartenders were talking about it being slow. Fast forward to the seating. Great server named Greg. He was good!... More

I have only been to two BJs in California but they were both terrific. Great place to watch a game or have a meal with family and or friends. Great atmosphere. Pretty pricey but the food is delicious. Busy sports nights you may want to call ahead for a reservation but I have never really waited over 20 minutes.

The hostess and waitress were very friendly and the service was excellent. The menu is very extensive. A good variety of different types of food to choose from. I had the Mediterranean Chicken Tacos and my husband had a pizza. Both were really good. The restaurant as well as the bathrooms were very clean. We are definitely coming back!

Have eaten here a few times when visiting Oxnard and the restaurant is consistently good and the staff very friendly. We visited last Monday for a late lunch and opted for the soup and half a sandwich. Both the tomato and the lentil soup was really tasty but could have been a little warmer. The sandwiches as usual were very... More
