Let's face it--every time those with celiac eat a meal away from home, there is a risk of getting contaminated. I have never had a problem after eating here, but that doesn't mean you won't ever. I think their pizza is better than most GF pizza, and there are some delicious options on the GF menu.
I have celiac and never had a problem here. Many GF Options.
Delicious food!! I had the burger with red onion, bacon and brisket it was amazingggg
great pizookie (ice cream cookie), and the broccoli cheddar soup was tasty. But my salmon was old, dry, and fishy tasting. The vegetables raw. I came in when I was starving and the host was awesome at getting us seated quickly, the hostess amazing at helping me curb my hunger by going to get me a soda and some cherries from the bar. And I ordered my cookie in advance so that I could eat quickly. Thursday night was amazing.
All they had was pizza! Lame .....
Burt the manager was very helpful. My food was good and I even got the gf cookie. They told me all gf items are prepared with dedicated equipment so it seems like it's pretty safe. I can see how if wait staff is not careful one could get glutened so I think one must not be afraid to ask questions. I wish their menu was a little broader but I will try BJs again!
Usually good. However won't eat pizza anymore due to cross contamination. Haven't had problems with other dishes though.
management is basically worthless... on their cell phone Facebooking at the bar while guests are sitting there with the wrong food. I've been here 4 times and contaminated twice. Wrong cookie for desert by the waitress... how do you do that? Service is hit or miss Brenna and Greg in the bar are good. That's the only reason for 2 stars instead of zero.
Good pizza and good dessert. Nothing much else for gf options.
Super limited menu! I don't even think it's worth going. When I go to eat with someone and this is what they choose, I eat ahead of time. Like others say, very slow service.
Ashamed to admit that we kind of went just for the dessert! Gluten free dessert in a restaurant is a rare treat. My daughter and I both had gluten free salads (Santa Fe) which were really good and the pizookie was to die for. Neither of us had any issues afterward. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that service really is pretty slow there. It took a long time to get our food.
Good menu and very good about contamination. The only reason I don't give them a 5 is that you can't get outta there in less then 2 hrs. They have service problems and I have always have to send back my food at least once, not because of gluten issues, just badly cooked or wrong food. Very safe place to eat for celiacs.
Great food and homemade hard cider!!!
We have been to Bj's several times. The gf pizza and capresse salad are wonderful. Most of our visits the manager came to our table to explain how they prepare gf and their efforts to avoid cross contamination. Only once did we encounter an idiot server but we just asked to speak with the manager and everything was fine. My biggest complaint is that I am also wheelchair-bound and it is a real hassle to get to the restrooms. You either have to enter through the take out door or traverse carefully through the crowded bar area.
FYI...we were at BJ's Restaurant & Brewery in Colorado Springs, CO today with my family. My kids are NOT gluten-free, but I am due to Celiac disease and my husband is to support me. We went there because we were told they were great supporters of GF patrons. When the waitress came I asked her a ? about an item on the menu and she didn't know..she took the gluten-free menu from me and proceeded to search..then she looks at me and says how about a potato because I really don't know about anything else...I said sure. Then when my husband ordered, off of the GF menu, she interrupted him and said is this an allergy or a preference? Not sure WHY she would ask that but I can say it made us VERY nervous about why she would ask that...is the food that is a "preference" going to be cross contaminated?? I ordered the sirloin...it was bland, no seasoning at all..it was supposed to have onions sauteed on top (per the menu), it didn't...I asked if they had any sauce, that was gluten-free...the man who brought out the food said he would check...he didn't. They promised my sons ketchup...we never received it and we had to ask for silverware. Overall, I was NOT impressed with the restaurant...the gluten free food was BLAND...and over all a poor experience was had by all. Just wanted to let you know...I know they claim support and endorsements by the GiG...but from my experience there are definitely BETTER GF restaurants out there!
Great gluten free pizza and great homemade soda
Great gluten free pizza, what a treat!
Wonderful to g-free customers!!! They offer g-free beer, cider, pizza, & dessert!!! The g-free menu has the entire menu on the back, in a grid, to list all ingredients from wheat to dairy to MSG!!!! The staff does a wonderful job taking care of you and I will certainly be back!
Great service, gluten free menu including gluten free pizza! Mgr came over personally to confirm that our order was gluten free. And the food was fantastic !
They had a number of GF options. I had a quinua, rice, shrimp thing that was very good. A little bland. I wish I had gotten the pizza. There was no GF beer. The had some crazy sweet cider thing, but I don't count that as beer. I was excited because this listing said it had GF beer.
Regular menu clearly lists GF items. One page GF menu available on request. I had "fire roasted barbacoa chicken" entree. Great! Have GF bun for burgers. Have GF pizza. Had 2 GF beers available. Service was excellent!
Had an excellent experience. They had a separate gluten free menu with some good options including an excellent gluten free pizza and dessert options. Had the pizza and the kale and Brussel sprouts salad, both of which were yummy. The waiter was helpful and knowledge about the food and assisted in my questions regarding gluten free alcohol options. Did not get sick. High scores!
This was hands down the best pizza I've eaten since dx'd with Celiac Disease. The server was knowledgeable of the importance of cc when I told her I had CD, and she let me know that she visited with the chef as well and they would be taking extra steps to ensure my meal was safe. I even had the cookie/ice cream for desert which was also wonderful. Love BJ's Brewhouse!!!
GF menu items are labeled. However, we ordered the GF dessert and they brought out the wrong one, but corrected it when we asked to verify if it was indeed GF. The mistake could have resulted in a bad ending and the waiter was very apologetic. Went back on a different night and manager personally came out to verify if a dish was GF. She was very concerned and interested to make sure that the dish was safe (pork chop).
In general the chain is pretty consistent. You have to ask for their GF/Allergen list menu. If you are more Paleo a great option is the quinoa bowl BUT they have added rice to it recently BUT you can request quinoa only and they will oblige. Just emphasize no rice. Some servers are clueless now as to what gluten, dairy and grains are. So be explicit. I wonder if they are no longer training per the requirements of the Gluten Intolerance Group.
My daughter and I both have Celiac, we were able To eat there and not get sick. One of the best gluten free pizzas we've had. Also had the Barbossa Chicken which was good. Separate area and clean utensils for pizza to avoid cross contamination. Service was a little slow.
We never got to our main dish. Ordered a gluten free Cesar salad without croutons. It came with croutons. The manager came out to deliver the second salad and when my son mixed it, he noticed a piece of corn in the salad. At that point, we didn't feel comfortable staying for our meal so we asked for the manager and told him the issues and left. He apologized and said he understood. This was our first visit to this restaurant. I called and spoke to the manager ahead of time and, based on the conversation, I felt confident that they understood gluten free and took the necessary precautions. Obviously, I was wrong.
Worse than not offering anything, their GF menu contradicted their kitchen practices and ingredients at the location in Westwood. Plus, the more inquiries made, the more confused the staff got. I opted for meat and lettuce on a plate and it was delicious, but seriously. Take everything in the chain's menu with a grain of gluten unless you find a manager who's really on top of it.
The Gluten- Free menu was quite expansive! The sirloin steak I got was wonderfully cooked. They also have a cookie-like dessert that's good for Celiacs. Overall wonderful restaurant, very careful with Gluten free food, they make it in separate pans and everything!
The food was really good and they seemed very knowledgeable about how to handle gluten free. The gf free food came out first and separate from everything else. Loved the gf pizookie! It was nice that they had such a great dessert offering. We gave it four stars only because the gf menu was so limited.
GF pizza, hamburger & pazookie! No reaction!
Good food - good service - the food took a long time for us today on a big busy day - but our server was friendly and helpful
Great place. I was on the road today traveling. I ordered the GF Chop salad (forgot their name for it) and had no problem. Further, it was a nice big portion. I had no reaction. It was happy hour, and the Tito and Tonic were very generous pours and excellent service.
