Eh. I frequent BJ’s but mostlty for conveniance. It’s one or two steps above your local TGIFridays or Applebees. It would get more praise from me but it’s so hit or miss. Very inconsistant which is typical of modern francheesy joints. I was there a week ago and handed a beer list of which the back half was there advertisement for their Oatmeal Stout, a seasonal which will be on tap for Feb and Mar. O.K. sold. I order one and am told that they don’t have it yet. This was two weeks into Feb. I come back the next week to try it again and was dissapointed. Nothing more than a watery Guinness. I order their Tatonka Stout for my second and was blown away. Rich, Dark, Sweet, just a wonderful brew. Apart from that they have a decent draft and bottle selection with notables: Westmalle, Saison Dupont, Chimay, and Rochefort. Their Cajun Jambalaya is amazing for the spicy inclined and a total knockout with their Pirahna Pale Ale. You’ll get one thing and love it, get the next and hate. They’re trying to do so much that they don’t know what they’re doing right.

August 2006: Visited during a typical, scorchingly hot Vegas afternoon. I was pleasantly surprised. BJs-Vegas offered the standard 7 BJs beers on tap, plus two local seasonals. But they also had a pretty good lineup of 5 guest taps and decent array of good bottles, too, including Saison Dupont, Chimay, La Fin du Monde, etc. Once the bartender finally saw me (which took a while), she was attentive enough, if maybe a little pushy with the food. And after disappointing returns to my old haunts at Chicago and Tenaya Creek, I’d have to put BJs near the top of Vegas’ beer stops. For visitors, this is in suburban Vegas, no where near the strip, so unless you have a car, you’re screwed. But it’s pretty close to the approach to the awesome Red Rocks park area, which is really one of the finest spots in the Vegas Valley anyway, so make a day of it!

Nicely lit (not too bright/not too dark), non-smoking environment. Decor was beer-related, with a mix of historical and house-brew posters and artwork. The service was excellent. My server, Sheila, was attentive without being intrusive and was knowledgeable in the beer arena. The draught selection featured seven house brews--a Kolsch, a Hefe-Weizen, an American Pale Ale, an American Brown Ale, an Irish Red (won an award as a Strong Ale, at 7.3% abv), a Porter, and an Imperial Stout. There were also two "special" brews--a "Scottish" ale and a Dubbel-style ale called "Abbey Normal." I had a pint of each of the specials, and they were both excellent. The restaurant also featured six guest taps, which included Lindeman’s Framboise and Chimay White when I was there. The food was great, and reasonably priced. The Chicago-style deep dish pizza is particularly worth a try. The only down-side is it is a LONG way from the Strip, and Vegas traffic sucks, so plan accordingly. This is well worth a stop, and I’ll visit again the next time I’m in town.
