    They gave a couple GF options but they are terrible. Staff is not friendly and knew anything about gluten. Why have a gluten free bun if the burgers themselves have gluten in them? Ridiculous

    Very good pizza crust, and their pizookie can be made gluten free. SO good. Didnt get sick here, but the service has been slow the past couple of times.

    We have been to a BJs before in CA and really liked it so my celiac daughter was excited when we saw this one was near our hotel. Their gf options were very limited here.When I questioned why their online menu had more gf I items she said it must be because of their suppliers that they have less choices at this site. I also asked the waitress to check to make sure the pizza crust and the cookie didn't contain oats because my daughter gets sick with even gf oats. The waitress said no one knew in the kitchen. So I asked for the manager and she actually went into the freezer and got the ingredient list. We also had to wait 30 minutes for the gf cookie. My husband finally went and got the manager to check on it. The manager is the only reason I gave this place more stars. They literally only had about 5 gf items: one salad, one soup, 1 chicken entree, 1 pizza, and 1 dessert. Very different from their online menu.

    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 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.

    My waitress was very a knowledgeable. She warned me that the grill and fryers can both be cross contaminated so I couldn't get burgers or steaks but their gluten free pizza and cookie dessert is phenomenal. She told me they cook the pizza in a separate pan in the oven. All toppings except meatballs are GF. Best pizza ever. Will go back.

    They will give you a gluten free menu if you ask, 2 to 3 pages, then the rest tells of what is in everything for allergy reasons. I have been diagnosed with celiac disease and I am going through chemotherapy. I ate a gluten free chicken dish, and a gluten free salad that tasted good. I had a rash and a stomach ache the next day but that could be from chemotherapy, so I am rating this unsure for know. Disappointing the half price pizza Monday does not include their gluten free pizzas which are 10 inches and cost $17.50 for chicken and mushroom.

    I eat the gf cheese and/or pepperoni pizza ALL the time- & it is my favorite tasting gf pizza. Note your “allergy” for the server to add to your order, to alert the kitchen to use extra caution and change gloves. They are aware. They use separate pans and extra precaution paper for the gf pizza. And the gf pizookie always comes out in a dark pan (not a silver one-like all others)! Order with a peachberry iced tea and you’re in for a treat!(:

    I've eaten at this location a couple of times, and haven't gotten sick, I did however get sick at this last visit and honestly it's my own fault for not reading the gluten free menu very carefully. I ordered the Fresh Atlantic Salmon with mashed potatoes instead of rice pilaf- which if you read the GF menu it says to remove the rice pilaf and also remove the lemon Chardonnay butter sauce... I forgot to mention this so it had the sauce- good God was it delicious- and exactly on schedule - blam. I didn't figure it out until I got home and re-read the GF menu. Always mention those caveats to the waitstaff- never assume. Other than that, every meal I've had at BJ's has been fabulous.

    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.
