BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse
Topping the list of casual dining in the Summerlin area, chain restaurant BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse does a fine job if you can handle the line to get in. Nevertheless, the restaurant is large and the line moves quickly. A typical twenty-minute wait will get you a comfortable table or booth and an interesting, if not ambitious menu.
Our wait on a recent Friday evening around 6:00PM wasn’t so bad. We chose to wait at the bar with a couple of house-brewed beers. Before we needed to order another round, our table was ready.
The menu features a large selection of main course salads, new twists on deep-dish pizza, pasta, burgers and specialty entrees. It took us about the time it takes to down another round of the house brew to make it through the menu and narrow down our choices.
We killed two cravings with one item, and went with the very likable bacon cheeseburger deep dish pizza ($10.25) which, after another beer, left no room for one of their intriguing desserts (note to self…skip a beer next time, must try the baked beignet topped with strawberries-$5.95).
BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse is located on W. Charleston across from Red Rock Casino in Summerlin (a twenty minute drive from the Strip). It’s a great Plan B if you find all the restaurants at Red Rock Casino with a one hour-plus wait for a table with no reservations (as was our problem that evening).
