A pretty good reataurant, just an okay brewpub. I really like their food and they have great lunch specials. Pizza is fantastic. They have an above average beer selection for a commercial chain. They also have their own brews which I found to be just average, not bad but nothing to come back for. They have about 8 regulars in their lineup and a few rotating seasonals. Service is quick and friendly.Overall I like the restaurant and enjoy their food, but I normally go for lunch and don't even get a beer.

i came here just to see what the Dallas possibilities after a week in austin. wanted something new... or at least something i haven't had. the atmosphere was typical. a chain brew pub. the place looked really clean and tidy. i had a flight of the beer and it was a complete waste of time. with that said it was very typical beer culture. i think i may have been the only person that ordered a stout in the summer as it is 'dark beer'. it was so stale alcohol separated it was undrinkable. come here if you like american blonds or ameircan hefs... this is almost lagerville. not cared for... not beer culture but commercialism.

I stopped in while in Dallas on business. BJ's is a short walk from the Springhill by Marriott. I'd been to a couple of BJ's in the northwest and wasn't in a rush to get back but this was close to the hotel, so I gave it a shot. I was glad I did. This location is certainly nicer than the two I'd been to and the happy hour specials ($2 for BJ's beers and 1/2 price personal pizzas) made it great.
The atmosphere is pretty modern and commercial but it's nice. Their beer is just above average but they do offer quite a few craft beers such as SN Anniversary Ale and Stone Arrogant Bastard. They have two small brewing tanks on display and after some speculation, my friend and I decided to take a closer look to see what they brew on the premises. If you look through the door, they're labeled "Root Beer" and "Cream Soda" so I guess that answered that question.
BJ's is a great stop if you catch them during happy hour (M-F ?-7). But otherwise, I'd skip it and head to the Saucer.

I'm with briman and confused why this is listed as a Dallas location when it's clearly located in Addison on any US map. Regardless, this BJ's is conveniently located near Addison Circle Park (upscale location near the airport) on restaurant row with lots of bars, hotels, restaurants, & shopping nearby. I met Finnman there on a summer afternoon for a couple pints while doing a beer trade. We sat at the bar and I enjoyed the Pook's Pilsner & Bock, plus a sample of their house cider. I'd rate the Pils as above average (3.75) with the Bock being about average (3.2). The cider might be a good choice for any lady friends in attendence who don't appreciate beer, but it was rather fizzy & overly sweetened IMO. The service was friendly & timely with no complaints. A recommended visit for a business luncheon, family dinner, or a quick dinner for one at the bar.

First off, this is in Addison, not Dallas.
Pretty large seating area, as well as a big separate bar area. Lots of TV's, both of the widescreen variety behind the bar area, and basic 40in flat screens dotted around the dining section. Standard selection of their beers, nothing seasonal offered by our waiter.
Food was kind of hit or miss at this location. Of our selections at the table, the burgers, fries & rings got good reviews...while the blackened chicken was basically bland. Everything else...pot roast, salads, stuffed potatoes were average. They have a large and varied menu, so honestly I wouldn't expect them to excel at everything. I've had pizza and other items in the past at this location that were excellent.
Service was a little iffy during this visit. Three of our orders were basically wrong...one was the wrong entree....and on two others he took one person's instructions and applied them to someone else's order...and vice versa.
Beers were on par with past visits. Nutty Brewnette and the Red were as good as in the past. As I mentioned before, no seasonals offered this time....and now that I think of it, I'm not sure I've ever been offered a seasonal or off-menu brew at this location.
In any case, overall this location is worth a visit. Good atmosphere,
varied menu, and in-house brews. You could do a lot worse.

I was in Dallas (Addison, specifically) for a few days on business and wanted to get a taste of the local brew. Had I realized that BJ's was a chain, I might not have stopped in, but it wasn't that bad of an experience in the end.
Tried their Irish Red, Porter, and Brown Ale, and was pleased with each. If I recall correctly, the Brown Ale was my favorite of the bunch, as it was the perfect balance of drinkability and malty flavor. I stuck to their house brews, but they had a good selection including SN Bigfoot on top -- a welcome sight, since we never have anything of that nature up here in the Northeast.
The atmosphere was decent -- though I didn't really see much more than the bar area.
The service was excellent, as I had a great bartender who was willing to talk shop about beer and sports.
For dinner, I had a pot roast sandwich at the recommendation of one of the bartenders, and never regretted it for a second. It was an open-faced sandwich with a solid 3/4" thick slab of cut-it-with-a-fork roast on a big piece of texas toast, topped off with gravy, a scoop of mashed potatoes, and a generous side of vegetables.
The only downside to the entire experience was watching one of the bartenders pour a Guinness. Clearly untrained, they left the tap on until the beer overflowed the pint glass, ensuring minimal head. Devastating.
Overall, though: good times in Addison.

Chain. Brightly lit. They have a selection of their own beers that are either brewed on the premises or at a nearby BJ brewhouse. These beers are ok takes on standard styles, mainly sorted by color vs any flavor profile. They have a decent selection of Belgians, just like every other BJ's. This is the place where upper middle class women get together for black and blue salads and wine. Some upscale young couples that can't afford French food or one of the Pappas Brothers restaurants will come here. Everyone, but the folks I'm usually with, are dressed well and behave well. TVs located throughout to cater to the sports minded. High ceilings prevent any real smokiness problems, except around the bar. Decent chili, some ok ribs. If you are stuck somewhere without access to beerfly at least you know that BJs will offer their own "brand" of beers plus some fine Belgians (the Saison DuPont in the 375ml bottle is mighty fine). Great place for the expense account and folks willing to try some craft beer.
