First review
 
BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse is a family style restaurant and brewery/bar. The menu features deep dish pizzas and the bar specializes in Belgian style beers brewed in-house. The atmosphere is casual. Prices are slightly higher than average. Aside from pizza, BJs also offers salads, burgers, pasta, chicken and steaks.

There are over 100 BJ’s locations, with most in California where the restaurant began in the 1970s. Not all locations have breweries. The Addison restaurant’s main dining room is large and open and with rows of tables and booths. A bar is located on the right and a large glass covered wing is on the left. BJ’s is often crowded and has high volume. It’s louder than average. While one can still have a conversation, you may need to raise your voice. Getting a booth in the back and away from overhead speakers helped a bit.

Even though BJs has an extensive beer selection, including both domestic and imports, this was a martini and wine night. The raspberry lemon drop martini was sweet and had a decent serving of alcohol. It worked well if you like a very sweet drink. The house red wine was nothing special as far as taste and overpriced relative to the serving. Appetizers included spinach and artichoke dip and spinach stuffed mushrooms. Neither was especially flavorful or memorable, and the mushrooms were oily. A vegetarian deep dish style pizza and a rib eye steak also failed to hit the mark. Both dishes were filling but bland. A clam chowder soup side dish though was hearty and appetizing, with a rich homemade taste and served piping hot. The pizookie dessert included chocolate chip, cookies and cream and red velvet warm cookie dough with ice-cream. The chocolate chip had a savory taste but all three servings were miniscule. Eating here was average at best. While people clearly like BJ's and this is often reflected in a full bar and dining room, any return visits will be directed to the brewery side of the business.

Everytime I go there I get a blondie and avacado egg roll. That's all I get everytime I go there.

This is always a safe place for a group of people because they have an extensive menu which generally will not disappoint once eaten. Extensive beer and drink menu. However, it is bright and loud so probably not the best place for a date.
