I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! – This place is great...It's the type of place that you can go in with shorts/t-shirt and flip flops or dressed to the nines and it doesn't matter..you fit in! The staff is friendly and on our first visit we were made to feel like regulars that had been going there for years..What more can you ask for? It's also nice (as a smoker) that there is an area to watch tv etc and smoke without feeling like you have to go out back and stand next to the dumpster. Also, if you're a fan of crawfish, they have some of the best crawfish I've ever had and plenty of seating for our group of 20+ to sit together! I very much recommend this place..it's got a little something for everyone! Thanks Big John's!
Too much smoke – Friendly bar, but too much smoke. In the cold days and nights, the barrier is open between the part with the garage doors and the inside bar and the garage doors are closed! However, everyone is nice and the bartenders are great!
Good old fashioned ice house – Friendly service, truly a casual burger and beer place. You aren't paying for decor. For a burger person, it's good old fashioned burger place.
Cold Beer and Good Eats – great esttablishment with a friendly fun and kicked back atmosphere. Service is great. Beer is always cold and food is tasty. If you are just looking to hang out and enjoy the day or night. This is the place.
My home away from home!!! – BJ's is full of wonderful, kind and generous people that I fondly refer to as my Big John's family. I've been a regular for over 10 years and am confident that they will hold my wake there when I die!!! Great people, cold beer, terrific food (thank's Hector) and a friendly atmosphere that can't be beat. Come see for yourself!!
How'd I miss it b4? – Good neighborhood spot. Friendly people. Nice range of ages. Very friendly staff (Happy B'day Tammy)!!
Do they serve food? I'll be back to find out! I should even be able to walk there from my place. It's a sports bar, so no it is not romantic nor trendy, duh! LOL
