We just visited BJ’s twice on our beach week trip. We come here every year with our family and always sit on the deck near sunset. The views and vibe are awesome. The kids love watching the ducks and my husband and I can relax with cold beers.
Most people are a little underwhelmed by the food. You need to know what to order and that you are also paying for the atmosphere and experience. I enjoyed my Shrimply Delish salad, which is pretty basic. Romain lettuce, some parmesan cheese, seasoned, grilled shrimp with a vinegrette. My husband enjoyed the pastrami sandwich, and the kids got fried shrimp.
I would suggest that you try this place. It’s been around for years, stays open year-round, and is enjoyed by locals. It’s worth the trip.
