This location appears to be a restaurant and beer bar, not a brewpub with beers brewed on premises, based on BJ's naming convention.

This place is one of the few places in the AV that actually has good beer and great food. There are only a couple of places where you can go and get craft beer up here and as of right now this is probably the best spot.

Apart from their own craft beer they have a decent selection of Belgian's and a few other bottles but quite honestly I dont need anymore choices. The food is always fantastic that is the main reason to go here so I usually stop in about once a week.

The service is good for a busy restaurant and this place is usually packed because like I said there are not too many places to go in the AV

Overall I love BJ's for everything they have to offer the beer is always fresh and taste great the food is always tasty and filling and the atmosphere is always wonderful and there is always eye candy walking around this place.

The one and only brew pub in the Antelope Valley. The bar area is very loud & crowded, especially at happy hour when you get $1 off the house beers and some half price food. Some nice big screen TVs at the bar are great when there are sports on. Beers are decent, nothing special. They have a gold, pale ale, red, hefe, brown, stout, porter and a seasonal. I've had the Nit Wit seasonal, which was a pretty good witbeer. Their red is decent has a nice hop to it. Food is a little over priced, but is usually pretty good.

This BJ's location is in Palmdale in the Antelope Valley Mall block off Rancho Vista and 15th. It is not too far off the 138/14 freeway. Parking is abundant all around.

The interior is similar to other BJ's brew houses. The space is very open with high ceilings. The bar is on the right and features several TVs. The rest of the establishment is table seating, with a garage door-segregated patio. Lots of mirrors and glass everywhere.

The beer selection consists of around 8 BJ's brews that includes a seasonal or two. The bottled selection is of the Sierra Nevada and Chimay persuasion. As with other locales, this locations offers a sampler of their beers. The beers are average for the most part, with a couple being above average.

Service was pretty good on a weekday evening. The server was familiar with the house beers and what seasonals were available.

BJ's has a pretty wide menu. I had a salad for dinner on this visit and it was pretty good.

Overall there are pros and cons to any chain brewpub. Knowing what you are going to get going in can either be good or bad. Despite the shortcomings though, BJ's is always a decent stop.
