About the restaurant
Time counts at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse. Since our humble beginnings back in 1978, we've continued to refine our brewhouse experience to make BJ's a place where you can make the most of any meal. We want BJ's to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail. Our guests come here for our award-winning handcrafted beer. They come here for the Southern California twist we've put on the Chicago-style deep dish pizza. And they come here for our Pizookies®, our world-renowned dessert. But above all we know people come here to make their good times better. So in many ways we haven't just crafted a brand, but a mindset. And our guests are the reason for this. And it's because of them we're continually striving to make sure every moment they choose to spend with us counts. Welcome to BJ's, a restaurant with a Brewhouse soul.

Great experience this evening with Adam. He was very attentive and did a great job taking care of us. There were quite a few people in there tonight, but we still felt important.

I took my parents for the Sunday Brunch on Father’s Day! It was a lovely experience with the live music playing. They were even kind enough to take song requests. We tried the Strawberry salad, avocado toast, beef empanadas, mango mimosa, and some dessert. Food was good but servings felt a little light. Definitely will go back and try again with the full menu. A fun new option. Also very handicap accessible!

About the restaurant
Constructed on our family-owned farm, Country Heritage Winery & Vineyard gives true meaning to its name. The farm has over 100 years of family heritage. We have generations of experience growing excellent crops, and it is our greatest pride to nurture our grapes from the day we plant the vines through the day you enjoy our wine.

We maintain over 70 acres of vineyards and several acres of blueberries. We work with highly regarded vineyards and farms to source the rest of our fruit. With meticulous care and attention to detail, we strive to nurture the best grapes for our wines. After all, if the fruit is great, the winemaking is easy.

About the restaurant
Our headquarters in beautiful Bloomington, Indiana is not just a restaurant & bar. It’s a throwback to pubs of old, where friends & neighbors gather to share old stories & create new ones. We’ve been brewing local beer here since 1998. And just like our beer, we’ve continued to innovate & reimagine over the years.

Pair your pint with a carefully crafted menu featuring locally sourced ingredients & plenty of creative options for vegetarians. Spring through Fall, cozy up on our patio where both human & dog children are welcome.

Exceptional service, fast and friendly. Very accommodating. The food was served timely without excessive wait time. The server remembered me, from over a month ago and remembered our party guests and exactly the table we sat. The restaurant offers a wide variety of food for every palate. Casual yet classy! Recommend Pier 48!

The restaurant is beautiful, our food was great and the service was amazing. Our waiter, Asia, was fabulous and very eager to help with recommendations on food or drink. We ate on the patio and it was quite noisy but that was our choice.

The staff was nice - professional, friendly and attentive. The beer and cocktail selection was awesome - both local and Irish beer was available - like the local brewery selection. The food, it was good but nothing to write home about - we have the fish & chips, stew, and the shepherds pie. I would come back, and we did, for the beer.
