BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse Restaurant Review

: This casual pub is located in the heart of Laguna Beach’s scenic and lively downtown, directly across from the city's main beach. The place specializes in deep-dish pizza and a rotation of regularly featured and seasonal microbrews that range from light lagers and hoppy IPAs to fruity ciders and heavy stouts. Other menu items include bar food, soups, sides, huge entrée salads, burgers, pastas, fish, and gluten-free and hand-tossed pizzas. Don't miss the "pizookie" dessert --- four varieties of cookies baked fresh in mini-pizza pans, then topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. A handful of alcohol-free "mocktails" are available. Children are most welcome; the restaurant boasts a pretty extensive kids’ menu and staff does a good job accommodating and entertaining their youngest of guests. Other locations.
