I went to the Woodlands location, and frankly wasn't really impressed. There was a bit of a wait but being that its The Woodlands that's too be expected anyways.
Our server was knowledgeable and good with kids but fairly inattentive. The food selection was great but very hard to decide on, some of which was dictated by price alone. Not a normal family eatery. They do however make their own soda in house, and that's always a treat for kids.
BJ's also has their own brews. Which i tasted their Irish Red i believe, it wasn't bad but not impressive. I know for a fact that at least of some their beer is made for them by a local brewery, dont know if I can state which one so i wont.
It was pricey, loud, the food was good but left a little more to be desired. Its so busy that the servers cant seem to keep up that well. The food alone would have me coming back, if there is such a thing as a slower time to go.

I've been to this location and nothing really stands out that would make this a favorite hang out. They have several big screens by the bar to watch sports, but there is nothing unique about the restaurant or bar.
I've found the food and beer selection to be quite average. The house brews are decent, but i have yet to sample anything that was really outstanding.
Also, the selection other than the house beers is pretty small and the waitstaff didn't seem very knowledgeable about beer. There are better places in town to visit.

This is a very good place to have a beer. It has a chain like atmosphere, but still fun with good service. The food was just average, I have only been there a couple of times, so maybe there are better things to eat. I had a very average burger and ribs the two times I eat there.
Anyway, on to the beer. BJ's selection runs from a kolsh to stout. Without getting into in-depth reviews, I was not disapointed with any style. Though they are all safe and standard. A nice Irish red and stout. The pale ale was more of an ipa, all hops and not much balance with the malt. The porter was a little watery, but good. The kolsh and wheat were typical of the style. All and all, a fun place that I would recommend. Though a bit standard.

I usually get here about five times/year-always for a Friday happy hour.
Firstly, it is just east of SH 249 on the south side of FM 1960. It is in "front' of the Willowbrook Mall-if you're heading east off of SH 249 make sure you stay in the far right lane or you'll fly right past it. It is much more than 1 mile east of US 290. And it is FM 1960 West-the "west" addresses start at US 59 near Humble.
As shown above the beers are contract brewed by St. Arnold-that is a good thing. The recipes are BJ's though. I usually start out with a hefeweizen-a well done beer I wish St. Arnold would brew instead of their filtered wheat. The red, stout, and porter are all also very good. You do have to ask for a room temp glass though or your lips will stick to the glass..
They have a good happy hour selection for food-personal pizzas are nice and are half price while the beers are $1 off.
Service is usually good though is can lapse at times even while sitting in the bar area. Really our only choice in north Houston for a brewpub type ambience and local beer. This area needs a good brewpub that brews on premises. Now non-smoking!!!
