BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse (Pembroke Pines)

Posted on September 24th, 2012 · American Pembroke Pines


***** BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, 12100 Pines Boulevard, Pembroke Pines, Florida 33026, (954) 430-3545.

BJ’ Restaurant & Brewhouse “American Style” chain…for right now, BJ’s has 125 restaurants in 14 states…61 of the joints are in California, 27 in Texas—for our purposes there are 9 Florida locations- 1 in Pembroke Pines, 1 in Citrus Park, 1 in Clearwater, 1 in Daytona Beach, 1 in Gainesville, 1 in Jacksonville, 1 in Kissimmee, 1 in Orlando, 1 in Pinellas Park.

Best way to describe BJ’s decor..looks like J. Alexander’s, looks like Houston’s, looks like (you insert the name) your favorite dark wood sports bar.

You can check BJ’s menu/prices/locations at The joint’s menu is loaded with appetizers, salads, burgers, sandwiches, meat/seafood/chicken entrees, beers/full bar.

Jeff Eats recently had dinner at BJ’s in Pembroke Pines…babyback ribs, bacon cheeseburger, grilled pork chops, bbq pulled pork sandwich, chicken fried steak…

Let me make this one short and simple, the food was okay, but not one item really stood out. Really-nice looking joint. Pleasant enough service. Fair enough prices.

BJ’s is OK…but that’s about it.

The joint looks better than its food tastes, so you are setup for a huge disappointment when the food arrives.

BJ’s is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-midnight and Friday-Saturday 11am-1am.

    Jeff, Ive eaten in one in Orlando and I thought the same thing. Nice looking restauarnt but the food was just fair.

    My two kids go to school at the University of Arizona in Tucson. earlier this year we were out there to visit them and tries BJ’s. As you mentioned, BJ’s is a very nice looking restaurant. The food was alright but nobody in our party was really impressed with the whole outing. Something is definitely missing in the food side of the business. That said, with 125 locations there must be loads of people who like the food. I guess that’s why there are always two sides to every story.

    Been to pembroke store. Nice looking restaurant. Food is no better than your average sports bar. Not in the same league as J Alexanders, Cheesecake, or Houston’s.

    A new one is getting built as we speak in the Falls Mall in East Kendall. I too have visited one in Orlando, FL. I sat at the bar and do not remember the food too much. I did leave me the impression of “glorified” sports bar food. The beer was good. We have so few options down here, heck we’ll take it. This place will be in direct competition with the Ale House across the street. That food isn’t all that either. Maybe this place will be a tad better, but certainly not expecting Cheesecake/Houstons quality.
