Favorites Get a New Spin
BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse specializes in a Southern California twist on the traditional Chicago-style deep dish pizza. Located in front of the Melbourne Square Mall, the large establishment is approximately 7,300 square feet and seats over 200 guests. The restaurant offers an extensive menu, including its signature deep-dish pizza, award-winning handcrafted beer and famous Pizookie dessert.
The diverse menu includes burgers, soups and salads, pizza, pasta, steaks and ribs. The signature deep dish pizzas offer plenty of topping choices, including a gluten-free option.
If you’re in the mood for meat and potatoes, BJ’s USDA steaks are hand-cut, aged for 28 days and seasoned with Big Poppa’s Double Secret Steak Rub. The Baby Back Pork Ribs is another entrée worth more than just mentioning, rubbed with Big Poppa Smokers’ Sweet Money Championship Rub and served with BJ’s own Jeremiah Red Ale BBQ sauce. Pair any of these meaty entrees with two house made sides such as roasted asparagus, white cheddar mashed potatoes or roasted brussel sprouts.
The specialty salads offer cool and crisp flavors. Using only the freshest ingredients; each salad is prepared to order. Enjoy flavor combinations such as the bold Santa Fe Salad or Barbecue Chicken Chopped Salad or try innovative takes on the classics like Caesar Salad or BJ’s Cobb Salad.
There is plenty for the kids too. BJ’s also offers a great selection of kids’ meals including their famous pizza and favorites like chicken tenders and grilled cheese.
Don’t forget to save room for a little (or a lot of) dessert. BJ’s signature Pizookie, a freshly baked cookie served in the baking tin with ice cream and toppings, is not to be missed. The dessert is plentiful enough to share between two or four diners. A gluten-free version of the Pizookie is available as well.
Like the name implies, another emphasis at BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse is beer. BJ’s was recognized this year at the 2015 North American Craft Beer Awards where they received several medals. Ten regular beers are always on tap, plus several seasonal or specialty beers.
BJ’s unique, contemporary décor provides the right environment for many dining occasions. Flat screen TVs are perfect for any sports game and the friendly atmosphere is just right for families where you will enjoy the fun setting, delicious food and good service.
