Big selection of house made beers from easy drinking lagers and blonde ales to big stouts, porters, IPAís and red ales. In addition a big food many that might have too much selection but definitely something for everyone. In addition they have about 10 American craft beer taps of other breweries and bottles from American craft brewers as well as European & Belgian bottles as well. Great place to grab a bite & a beer for a good price and be satisfied.

Not much to offer here. Beer falls short and food is nothing special. Get the big baked cookie with ice cream and drink somewhere else.

BJís has a wide range of their own crafted beers along with frequently rotating seasonal beers that are often better than those on their regular lineup. Springtime means Maibock, and theirs is one of the better examples of this style. Many Belgian styles make their way onto the seasonal list, so thereís always something for everyone. So, for the area that counts most - beer, this place is among the best for chain brewpubs. The contemporary atmosphere here has high ceilings, spacious booths and tables, and a large bar area make for plenty of seating during the twice daily happy hour specials. The spacious structure also means the noise levels never get horrendous like at some local places that offer better beer selections, and the customers arenít the inebriated college fratboy types either. Service is simply exceptional. The corporate model is working for them - you almost feel serviced to death. My beer never goes below the halfway point before Iím asked if I would like another, the food comes out as it was ordered, on schedule, and if thereís even a minor problem the food item was "comped" from my check without having to ask. They make you feel as though theyíre delighted youíre there to visit them, rather than having the attitude of "youíre lucky we serve these beers to you". Food is a fusion of traditional Chicago Pizza favorites with thin crust items, calzones & sandwiches, pastas, and more. In some ways this place is an upscale version of something like Old Chicago. Price is reasonable, relative to other places of similar quality, but youíll pay more than a hole in the wall establishment.

Chain restaurant and brewpub. Very busy place the night I went. Service was a bit weak. The math became very complicated when we told them there were nine of us. They had 8 house beers on tap and 2 imports. Not sure how many bottles. Their house beers were decent. Food was better than the beer. One interesting thing to note is that they serve deep dish pizza, and although they call it Chicago style, it definitely is not.
