Gluten-free pizza was good if you like thin crust. The broccoli cheddar soup was excellent though!

I love coming here for dinner. The pork chops are delicious! It’s such a treat to be able to get dessert at a restaurant and it’s delicious!

Overall not impressed. The reviews were really good, but I was underwhelmed. The wait was long, the soda machine had no carbonation, and I got the wrong kind of bowl. Would not go back unless there was nothing else.

Staff seemed knowledgeable and server said chef was aware of celiac disease and the need for no cross contamination but I was very sick within the hour of eating here.

Dedicated GF menu. Had the Cheeseburger with a side of white cheddar mashed potatoes. They don’t have a dedicated frier so French fries aren’t an option but they had several other sides to choose from. I enjoyed my meal here! (Had a pizza at a different location earlier in the week - great meal and experience then too!)

They have a dedicated GF menu with lots of options. Manager indicated pizza was the safest option so I went that route, picking the Chicken Bacon Ranch pizza. It was excellent! Ate the entire pizza and no issues. Waitress indicated they had a GF cider but I passed on that. (Ate at a different location later in the week. Had the Cheeseburger with cheese mashed potato this time - it was great and no issues)

The GF pizza is some of the best I’ve had, and the GF pizookie was fantastic! I felt great afterwards. I will definitely return.

We loved BJs before I was diagnosed and found a variety of options after. The servers seemed knowledgeable and the food was great. My wife even found the GF Pizzookie very similar to their 'regular' dessert.

Had an excellent gluten free pizza here. They have an extensive gluten free menu and staff was knowledgeable. They even confirmed for me that the pizza was gf when it was brought to the table. I wait to post reviews to see if I react...very happy to say no reaction!

Our bartender (Megan) was great. Any questions I had about the money she answered. If she didn’t have an answer, she went to the kitchen and got it. Food was great and service was solid. I would absolutely recommend.

I had high hopes for this location as I have had great experiences at another Bj’s out of state. Unfortunately, we did not have a great experience as my daughter’s burger came out with a gluten bun, which made her cry and feel unsafe eating the burger the remade her with the GF bun she requested the first time. Also, I ordered a GF pizza with no cheese due to dairy allergy and my pizza came out with cheese on it. The waitress even read our large order back to me before giving it to the kitchen and told them they would put the allergy alert on everything. After the issues occurred she kept saying the kitchen staff gets really nervous with allergy orders and have had a lot of problems with them. She also said, “I knew that bun looked too good to be true gluten free.” Well then why would she still serve it? This did not help anything and made me wonder what else may include gluten or be cross contaminated. I would give this location zero stars if I could, and needless to say I do not recommend and will not be returning.

This is the first place I have ate at since I went gf. The waitress was very kind and helped me pick out a side. I got the shroom and swiss burger with a gf bun. The bun wasnt bad, it was a biscuit texture. I got a baked potato as my side.

Gluten free hamburger was served with gluten french fries even after speaking at length with server about celiac disease. The hamburger was remade and served with bacon on the side. After eating the bacon, a greasy gluten fry was sitting on the plate. Definitely not celiac safe.

Ate here after seeing all of the glowing reviews. . . and boy am I paying for it. Started having symptoms almost immediately after eating. Do not eat here if you have Celiac Disease.

I have eaten here several times. I have Celiac disease and am extremely sensitive to cross contamination. They have a 2-page gluten free menu offering pizzas, salad, burgers and a few other things as well as their signature dessert, a giant gooey chocolate chip cookie with ice cream. I always stress to them how severe my gluten "allergy" is and request they change their gloves and I have never gotten sick. Be aware their fries are NOT gluten free.

This BJ’s is great! I had the spinach/artichoke dip (comes with veggies instead of chips), burger with GF bun, baked potato, and pizookie (no ice cream) and it was all delicious. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about all the GF options and made me feel very safe. And best of all, I didn’t get sick!

I've tried this location a few times. The first was right after they opened and they tried to serve me a regular deep dish pizza when I had ordered the gf pizza. The server insisted it was gf and, thankfully, having eaten at other BJ's locations I knew it was not. More recently, I ordered a gf pizza and it tested positive for gluten with my Nima. I love the pizookie and it seems safe since it's made in its own dish, but be cautious about what you eat here.

Daughter had GF pizza, & broccoli cheese soup surprisingly also GF & a GF pazookie. Everything was great. Asked about the steak not being marked GF, it's the seasoning. She decided not to risk it even without the seasoning. Waitress was super helpful with any questions we had

Stopped in for a light meal and drink. Very friendly, efficient. The gluten-free version of the Great White pizza was very yummy! Everything was served at the right temperature and the wait for our food was minimal. They have a separate gf menu that has a nice selection.

The staff ensured that they understood the gluten cross contamination, etc but my pizza did come and NIMA tested (very quickly) with gluten found. I don’t think a place with this amount of volume is going to treat Celiac needs seriously. They took it off my bill with no further questions after I explained NIMA test. A lot of places don’t make it that easy to have it taken off the bill so I do appreciate that.

I eat here often. Never been sick. I usually order safer things, like broccoli cheese soup and salad, cobb salad, quinoa bowl with salmon. I am celiac so I make a big deal out of it and they always treat me well.
