We were there for lunch and one of us ordered the soup and salad from the lunch menu. It was a lettuce wedge with blue cheese dressing and bacon strips. The soup was a bowl of clam chowder. He said both were excellent. I ordered the super salad, which was also excellent. It contained kale, cucumbers, blueberries, grapes, jicama, corn... More

Service was good and friendly and the atmosphere is nice. We sat on the deck. Food was just "ok". For the price and menu items I expected more.

We often come here to eat, have a few beers, and watch the UF football games. Plenty of TV's, comfortable seating, and the food is very good. The staff are always friendly and the service is usually quick.

We have taken the family with 18 for dinner to celebrate a graduation at UF and just my wife and I - no matter the size they are Always Great. They have a full range of Apps, meat, fish, salads and a... More

I 'discovered' BJ's on a trip to Orlando, FL so when I saw this restaurant close to my hotel in Gainesville, I knew where to go eat. VERY lengthy menu with a multitude of food choices. The food was very good, and service was fast. I had the New Orleans Jambalaya and the Salted Caramel Pizookie for dessert. Both were... More

Plenty of options on the menu, almost overwhelming, but it captures all palates. Everyone in our group all agreed the food was really good. Our server was incredible, on point, friendly and above and beyond. Very large dining area that can accommodate larger groups and a good size bar area. Plenty of TVs throughout. There's also an outdoor patio. Of... More

Just left BJ's. Not one to leave negative reviews, but we sat for 25 minutes and had no service. A half dozen waiters walked by, but no one picked up that we hadn't been helped. Poor form, they just lost a customer.

When I first looked through the menu I was taken back by how expensive the food items were compared to other BJ locations. But once the food arrived, I was delighted by how large the portions were! My waiter was attentive and never left my drink glass empty. Left full and highly satisfied! The items pictured were appetizers!

Went here with my grandchildren who are adults. We had a really good time. It was a last minute decision but we were very pleased. The service was excellent and the food was very good. We have eaten here before and are never disappointed.
