This place was quite busy, cars waiting and looking for parking places. However, there was plenty of mall parking outside this locale since it is located in a mall area. Very nice atmosphere though quite busy inside. A nice variety of seating options such as, bar, little round tables with tall barstools, enclosed private booths, regular tables and regular booths. Lots of eye candy, waitresses were attactive. If you come at lunch or dinner, youíll be waiting in line unless you make reservations. Once seated, our waitress was very polite and knowledgable about beers. We had a couple of large samplers. Beers were on style and they even had a cider on tap! The food was rather expensive so we held off on the grub and got some at another locale. Like matta said below, this is not truly a brewpub but they got lots of brewpub beers brewed at another location and brought in by the keg

Bjís gets busy, food is pretty good and usually piled high. The BJ brews are okay, but they usually have some better stuff from Belgium and the USA. Have been a few times for dinner with friends and always have a pleasant experience!!

The ambiance is that of a really new semi-upscale chain restaurant. (somewhere between Bennigans and Cheesecake Factory) I know a lot of people donít like this and I understand the reasoning but itís nice none the less. The service was fantastic. My server Todd not only knew a lot about the menu but he was a true beer lover. He even brought me 4 extra drinks (2 ciders, a root beer, and a bock) that were not part of the sampler I ordered. He was great to talk to and gave outstanding service. The selection is better than average for these Restaurant brewpubs. Most of the styles you could predict since they are out to sell beer to the general public but 8 different styles of beer and 2 ciders on tap that night was more than enough. The food was really good. Itís American style stuff that you could guess wold be on the menu at a place like this but both my sandwich and desert tasted really good. Overall itís one heck of a place to enjoy.

Very nice ambiance, much like a chain restaurant with a bit of taste. Dark with lots of hardwood and TVs. Beers were ok, better than Iíve had at other brewhouses, but not going to beat what I keep in bottles at home. The food was worth it though. I enjoyed my chicken-fried steak, and I got a chance to sample the other selections my family ordered. I would return for the food and have one of their brews if I felt like it.

Apparently myself and Matta were at this place the same night as desurfer. It was a training night and you only payed for drinks. Food was comped and a donation envelope was handed out. On to the place: Stunning. Extremely upscale and well decorated with lots of visually appealing wall art and masculine wood accents. Itís one of the nicest looking brewpub/restaurants I have ever been in. The food was fairly good and the beer was solidly decent...actually leaning toward pretty tasty if a bit narrow in range. Iíll definitely be back.

Liked the pale ale and from previous experience really like the stout. Food menu is a good selection but the chicken pasta I had was too pre-fab. Service was very good as waiter never let me get EGS (empty glass syndrome).

A very good-looking build out and the beers are rather well made to bootÖ But donít be fooled by the words ďBrewhouseĒÖ there is NO beer brewed on premiseÖ itís all brewed in TX at St. Arnolds and shipped in State. The food was pretty good, but I was there during the training nights, So, Iíll have to revisit the menu and give a final critique later.

The most interesting thing I learned during my visit was that they plan to rotate through some of their seasonal brews. Right now they have their Bock and Pook Pilsner. The Bock was nice. The food I tried was very tasty. I really enjoyed sitting at the bar and watching sports on the array of tvs. This place looks a little nicer than the one Iíve been to in Le Mesa, CA. The staff I met was friendly and fun to talk to. Hopefully the Citrus Park location will provide a similar experience. Nice selection of Belgium bottled beers for a FL restaurant.

Visited here in early August í10. Nice corporate brewpub atmosphere - high ceilings, big TVs, lots of brass and mirrors. Standard offerings of BJs brews on tap - same as at other locations and some guest taps - this one had Swamphead Big Nose IPA. Food is excellent - huge servings and very attentive waitstaff. Donít come expecting an awesome brewpub experience with some experimental local brewed offerings but rather a nice evening out in pleasant surroundings with some decent beers that are not from the macro kings.
