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.

Wanted to celebrate my Mother-In-Law's birthday with our family. I have Celiac's disease (severe Gluten Allergy), so finding a place that everyone will enjoy AND be safe for me to eat is always a problem. Places that offer both standard meals and gluten sensitive options (they can't say "gluten free" because of possible cross-contamination) are always a crap shoot. My ability to eat out safely is truly in the hands of those that prepare and handle my meal. Everyone knows that BJ's food and brews are delicious...plus the PIZOOKIES!! but what always sets one location from another is their customer service and this BJ's is the absolute best!!! Ryan T and his manager (I'm sorry I don't remember his name) truly went above and beyond! From the moment I told Ryan that I had a gluten allergy he was so careful. They made every accommodation they could and when I had a question about something (like sauces) Ryan was quick to find out the answer. When he didn't know the answer, he checked with the manager. There was even a moment where the manager took the time to visit our table just to make certain my meal was safe to eat. Really above and beyond! I always feel like a burden to the server/restaurant when going out to eat. Not many places/people understand that "gluten free" isn't always a choice... it's a necessity. PLUS, it's the entire restaurant that is involved! Everyone that handles the food, plate, glasses, silverware is involved to help make sure cross-contamination doesn't ruin the gluten free experience. Even a spatula or a glove that has handled bread/gluten can ruin my time out with my family for the ENTIRE DAY. Ryan, his manager, and the entire food prep team gave us the best customer service and for that they deserve a standing ovation! Truly, I thank you all for helping my family celebrate my MIL birthday and I look forward to visiting again :)

We were on vacation in HB and stopped in for dinner. My celiac son had a gf pizza. He liked it and didn’t have any issues after. BJ’s is one of our go-to restaurants at home. This location was exactly what we expected from the chain.

This used to be a favorite place to go when visiting Orlando, but the last 2 trips the service was poor, the restaurant is dirty and bathrooms were overflowing with trash. It’s the little things that give you clues to how attentive the staff will be with your food!

Called and spoke to the manager before coming down and he reassured me they take every precaution for Celiacs. Ordered the chicken Cesar salad because that is easy and sure enough the salad came with croutons! On top of waiting over an hour to sit and another hour to get our food. Never again

We eat gf pizza here all the time! Monday nights are half off pizza night for both dine in and carry out. It’s become our pizza carry out option since it’s safe for the whole family. I’ve gotten the gf pazookie when dining in with the family, and we really enjoyed that as well!

I only eat a few select items from here, but have never gotten sick. The only certified gluten free item is the GF personal pizza. It's a decent pizza for a chain, and I appreciate having the option. There are other items on menu that can be made GF, but make sure to talk to the staff about needing it to be celiac safe.

Wonderful staff, fully aware of the difficulties with Celiacs. They had several GF options one of which was pizza. Server even went so far as to tell me how they prepare it in a seperate area and walk it out seperate. Manager was attentive to be sure procedures are followed. Even have a gf dessert. Made my son very very happy.

Our waiter was very knowledgeable about gf items and preparation. At a different location, I had tried the gf pizookie multiple times- it was always undercooked and waitstaff would be confused as to why my "cookie" was dripping off my spoon. Here, our waiter simply said they have to bake it twice. First time I was able to enjoy their pizookie! My meal was also great.

Gluten free pizza was bomb! Staff were nice and aware of celiac. There was a separate Gluten free menu. Staff assured me that the food for gluten is prepared in a separate area. A lot of options are available. Will eat here again.

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.
