BJ’s Brewhouse Review

I’ve sent two their corporate headquarters asking which of their vegetarian items are vegan.  I have still not received a reply, but I did some googling and found out that a lot of their menu is indeed vegan-friendly, and since they’ve clearly worked hard to offer food to people with special diets and food allergies of all types (they have a comprehensive PDF for food sensitivities on their website), I wanted to give them a good review.  

In addition to a huge list of craft beer, the vegetarian/vegan items they offer are:

Mediterranean Vegetable Pasta–Rotini noodles tossed with roasted vegetables, sun-dried tomatoes, capers and Kalamata olives mixed with a light vegetable broth and topped with pine nuts, fresh basil, Parmesan cheese and parsley.

(No cheese.)

Garden Medley Salad— Crisp romaine lettuce, artichoke hearts, fire-roasted red peppers, tomatoes, red onions, feta cheese and our balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Available with grilled chicken, cajun shrimp, flame-broiled or blackened salmon.

(No cheese, no meat.)

Spaghetti with Marinara Sauce–Basil tomato sauce, slowly simmered with garlic, onions and herbs.

(No butter on pasta, no cheese.)

Angel Hair Toscana–Our delicate angel hair pasta tossed with olive oil, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, fire-roasted red peppers, fresh basil, feta cheese, pine nuts, Roma tomatoes topped with fresh Parmesan cheese and parsley.

(No butter, no cheese.)

House Salad–Your choice of a crisp romaine and iceberg lettuce salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots and freshly baked seasoned croutons.

(No croutons.)

Veggie Burger–Vegetarian patty served with pickles, tomatoes, red onions and shredded lettuce.

(They have additional toppings you can add.)
Vegetarian Pizza–Sliced mushrooms, green peppers, black olives, white onions and seasoned tomatoes.

(No cheese.  Crust is vegan!  Tons of toppings and build-your-own options.)

Roasted Vegetable And Goat Cheese Pizza–Roasted vegetables, goat cheese crumbles, mozzarella, red onions, seasoned tomatoes and a drizzle of basil pesto sauce.

(No cheese, no pesto.)

Portobello Mushroom Pizza— Caramelized onions, balsamic vinegar, oven-roasted mushrooms, and fresh herbs.

(No cheese.)

Half Flatbread Pizza & Salad– A half-size portion of any of our flatbread pizzas served with mixed baby greens tossed in our balsamic vinaigrette and topped with shredded carrots, red onions, cucumbers and tomatoes. Flatbread choices: Margherita Fresca, California Club, Fresh Basil with Italian Sausage, Grilled Chicken Pesto.

(Vegetarian option without cheese.  All crusts are supposedly vegan.)
