One of my favorite local chain restaurants. Gluten free pizza, gluten-free dessert and ciders. Staff is very careful, pizza is a great value and you can place your order before you even get there either for takeaway or so that it’s ready when you are seated.

Staff was very helpful, however it didn’t matter how many questions were asked. Things are marked on the menu as GF but we’re not (Derby Cobb comes with blue cheese). Blue cheese dressing was also marked as GF in the allergy menu, doubt it actually is. We were assured that the pizza had it’s own tray, and the kitchen was notified of the allergy, but it still resulted in early morning vomiting and weeks of illness. Fryer is shared with fried chicken and other wheat products. Supposedly a gluten free burger would come with fries if we didn’t ask. Second star is definitely only because of our waiter.

I have Celiac disease but was able to eat here with no problems. They have a gluten free menu you need to ask for.

Ok GF options, but it's just mass produced, Cisco frozen food and tastes like it. Most servers not well versed in anything GF. Ok place to go with others who aren't healthy eaters

Limited GF options. Been a couple of times in a pinch but wouldn't go out of my way to find here.

I had one of the steaks (new york steak i think) and the cheddar mashed potatoes. It was sooo good. I've been back to have it again too. I just take care to say "i'm really allergic to gluten, can you please tell the chef." Mmm...

I think it's great BJ's has a gf menu. Last night, we drove South of SF to watch to the sunset and get some gf takeout from BJ's. I ordered the BBQ Chicken Salad. BJ's was packed. By the time our order was ready I forgot to open it and check everything. When I got home and opened the salad, it was covered in battered fried onions! After removing them, which really wasn't too difficult or damaging to the salad, I was super excited to dive into my gf yumminess! Never happened. The salad tasted so bland, I could bought one from a bad at Traders. While I very much appreciate BJ'S menu efforts, I believe I paid $16 for less than half a grilled chicken breast and a watery combo of lettuce, jicama, corn and mushy tomatoes. Definitely try some other gf menu items and let us know how they taste! :)

The gluten free items on the menu are clearly marked, though they aren’t many choices. Also, they have gluten free alcoholic drinks on tap. I ordered a gluten free cheese pizza. I was told there is a dedicated room in the kitchen where the gluten free pizzas are made. The pizza was amazing, and I didn’t get sick. They also have a gluten free item on the dessert menu, a chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream.

This is one of the only 2 restaurants nearby that we go to since we have a celiac child. We have had good experience here. They have a separate area for gluten allergies but you do need to talk to the waiter to let them know of the seriousness of celiac. They are usually careful

I'm always happy going to BJ's Brewhouse. I get a pizza with pepperoni and extra cheese, and then the pizookie of course! It's a great place to go with friends because they have so many options even if people don't want pizza. I'm always careful to remind the server that I'm gluten free for a medical reason, but I've never had an issue.
