We came to BJ's for two main reasons. 1st they were open until 12am (midweek) so we didn't have to feel odd for dining at 11pm when other places were getting ready to close or were already closed. 2nd we had seen on other sites that they were gluten Intolerant friendly. They even had their own gluten-free menu. I will agree, the Brussels sprouts were very yummy. I hate every one of them! I would definitely order them and recommend them. I had the jambalaya. It had a "blackened" flavor more so than a spicy or Cajun flavor. It was different than I expected, but still very good. My partner, who has celiac disease, ordered the gluten-free pizza. (I was allowed a small bite) The cheese was good. Didn't taste like your typical pizza cheese. For being gluten-free it was tasty. The other couple dining with us had the jalapeño burger and shrimp pasta. Both said they enjoyed there meal. Our waitress was awesome. Never an empty glass. She never made us feel rushed, even though we were the last people in the restaurant. It was a good dining experience and would eat here again if in the area.
while on vacation last week in Daytona my husband and I went here twice! They know how to do the whole GF thing. However, I did get the same salad each time I went because it was huge and was so good. I am bummed that each time we went I was either A. so full or B. we didn't have time to get the skillet cookie thing they had. The menu was CLEARLY labeled GF and they even have a separate GF menu if you ask for it. I was happy and surprised to see that on the specials card that was sitting on the table talked about how they are trying to make more GF options and even had a special GF cocktail! I will 100% be going back here the next time I am in Daytona.
The gluten free pizza was awesome, and my husband, who is not gluten free loved it too! Always a plus.
I eat there all the time and never had a reaction. They will even wrap the burgers in lettuce and have a dedicated fryer for french fries.
Definitely gluten friendly, and the waitress was great. Gave three stars b/c the pizza wasn't very good, and kind of expensive for the quality. The gf pazooki was great though!
Fantastic! The gluten free menu had many choices. I had the broccoli cheese soup, the portobello mushroom and asparagus salad, and the GF chocolate Chip Kazookie, and everything was excellent! The staff was friendly and the restaurant was beautiful. The prices were good too.
Awesome place to eat. Great staff and wonderful atmosphere. A nice selections of gluten-free items including a dessert and a cider.
I have celiac disease. Everything that is made for me was made in a separate area with separate dishes and utensils. The server ,Ted was very knowledgeable . I had the pizza and pizookie. Everything was very good. I highly recommend this restaurant .
Consistently great food. I especially love the pizza! I eat there often and never have I had any issues and never sick! They know how to take care of gluten intolorance! Yeah!!!
Kayla was outstanding! Explaining how they keep everything separate in the kitchen to avoid cross contamination. Pizza was amazing & cookie pizookie was delicious! Even my husband who is not GF loved it! It a must eat place for is next time we are in the area!
Beer and pizza GF yum excellent meal. Will eat here more often
delicious food! my boyfriend (non-gf) and I shared the gf pizookie dessert at the end of our meals and he even thought it was amazing. definitely would go back if I'm in the area again.
Did not get sick! The kitchen mgr explained to me how they cleaned, prepped and sanitized they gf area. That they take it very seriously. I ordered the gf Santa Fe salad with chicken and shrimp. I had vinegar and olive oil as my dressing. My waiter even talked of avoiding cross contamination! I have celiac and am very sensitive.
I was in heaven. Having been so careful of maintaining a gluten free diet I was afraid to dine out...but I will be back at BJ's many times. THANK YOU!!!!
I was very disappointed, there were very few GF selections available. Their GF menu consisted of nothing more than a spreadsheet listing allergies and what items contained the allergen. Not many selections for children either. I had the pizza, The crust was good but I did not care for their tomato sauce, but then again, you'll have that. Beemer Bob
Best GF pizza I've ever had! The restaurant offers a whole menu that addresses multiple food allergies and the staff was highly knowledgeable. We were told that there is a separate cooking area for all the GF foods and that they are stored above any other types of foods that could be an issue for someone with allergies.
Need to work on the G-free pizza. Yuck. Chewy crust, not a good flavor.Won't get again.
They have a gluten free menu and I have eaten here a number of times without getting sick. Also they have ciders!!
Does have a separate gluten-free menu. Had the thin crust pizza. Was tasty but the crust was not crispy.
Nice people, but the worst gf pizza I have ever had! The crust - on all 4 pizzas - was hard and difficult to chew, the "extra" cheese was ignored, and there was not enough sauce to even cover the crust - even though we ordered double! We ate the toppings - scant as they were - and threw the crusts away. In fairness, the manager offered to replace them when I called, but we all decided to stick with PizzaRev from now on. UPDATE: I ended up returning on New Years Day and the pizza was much better this time. I learned that it is best to specify that you are ordering GF due to allergy so that a manager makes your food. Also, I let them know that I had a bad prior experience, which helped in getting my order right. Consequently I am revising my rating from 1 to 3 stars.
We always get the gluten free pizza. The crust is fantastic! The staff is pretty knowledgable about Celiac Disease and relaying the message to the kitchen that the meal is for someone with Celiac or a "gluten allergy". They assure that the staff changes gloves and the meal is cooked in a clean area. They also have a gluten free cookie desert that is super yummy! This is our kiddos favorite place!
Maybe this restaurant would be better in a town without other gf options, but we did not enjoy our experience at all. Being right down the street from Burton's with their endless choices, the small handful of options at BJ's left a lot to be desired. Their labeling system just complicated things. They handed us a brochure with every item marked as far as the top 8 allergens, and then their menu has a gf seal, as well. It took a lot of time switching back and forth between the two, especially being all out of order. We ended up with gf burgers, which are marked in the menu and come with fries. After my husband ate half of the fries, I noticed they were battered. WHY WOULD YOU SEND OUT GLUTEN FRIES WITH A GF BUN??? The manager came to assure me that they didn't bread the fries, only for our waitress to come to him with the cook's information that they are, indeed, breaded.
I have celiac and never had a problem here. Many GF Options.
GFree salads, pizza, cider, and full bar. They just added GF buns for their burgers. Server was very helpful and they have a comprehensive allergen menu. All of their specialty pizzas available GFree. Will dine here quite a bit after this first experience!
I celiac. This was my first time to eat at this location but I have eaten at several other locations of this chain and have never had any ill effects. I did not confirm preparation practices before ordering but I should have as this restaurant recently opened and they may not have things exactly as they should.They have a guide to help show what good have the top 8 allergens as well as gluten items marked.I have only eaten pizza and the Gf cookie.I feel like I had a little bit of a reaction but it could have been I ate too much or something else. Unsure if my reaction was cross contamination or not.They brought out a mini appetizer for my son and I was impressed by that.This used to be my favorite place for pizza but after discovering a freezer pizza by Fresecsa (spelling?) nothing is as good as it.This location pizza was not as good as I remember other locations being. I may have picked the wrong topping.I feel like as celiac I have to like stuff for what it is even if it's not as great as I would like.Just glad to have options!Please call ahead and ask questions if you need to be certain of their practices to make sure it is right for you.
I have celiac and am very sensitive. When I was less sensitive years ago I was okay, but now can't eat there, whether I get pizza or something else. I love their pizza and wish I could have it. Last time I was there the server was very nice, tried really hard, and had a relative with celiac so seemed to understand my concerns. Still got sick. I've gotten sick at multiple locations.
We actually ordered something different for once other than pizza and pizookie. We had the ribeye with mixed vegetables and asparagus. We had them cook it in a pan, not on the grill. It was excellent and they were very careful and we didn't get sick. It's nice that they accommodated us on a busy night and took the extra effort. We told our waitress (who was excellent by the way) that if they couldn't do it, we were fine with the pizza. Highly recommend and if you give them specific instructions, they are able to prepare something else besides GF pizza and pizookie!
Safe food ... GF pizza, pizookie and Strongbow bottled cider. All delicious! However, the service was very slow. We were there hours. Went twice over our recent trip to So. California.
Delicious GF DF pizza! Also, had GF DF pizookie (without ice cream - the pizookie itself is GF DF). Additionally, they have my favorite cider - Strongbow! Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and waitress and manager were very attentive and helpful and went out of our way to make sure we had a pleasant experience. They took the extra time to cut all pizza ingredients fresh to avoid cross-contamination when we explained the seriousness of our allergies. Also, they don't use latex gloves which is a huge plus for us. Highly recommend!
Delicious food!! I had the burger with red onion, bacon and brisket it was amazingggg
They gave amazing service ! The chef came out to make sure everything was okay and the waiters assured me that everything is safely prepared. They also said they are going to offer gluten free buns for their burgers now ! I highly recommend coming here if your celiac !
