At BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse, the game is always on, there’s plenty of beer and comfort food, and service comes with a smile.

Local beer geeks give the brews top marks and call them the real draw.

The extensive menu is just what you expect: beer, pizza, wings, and burgers, with nods to the upscale through ribs, steak, and pasta dishes. Regulars call it decent, if a bit pricey, and some expect portions to be larger. It’s huge inside, but it gets packed, so call ahead or expect a wait, especially on game days.

Happy Hour is after 10 p.m. Check BJ’s website for menus and a beer list. Online ordering, take-out, and gluten-free dining is available.
