Late lunch at BJ’s

So we’d been running around and ended up doing a late lunch at BJ’s Brewhouse which, according to Steev, is perpetually packed with long lines stretching all the way out of the building. We’d been turned away once before because the line was too long. We were lucky this time as the lunch crowd had left.

Lunch turned out to be quite a laugh all because we had a funny server who commented that we were “ordering A LOT” and thereafter repeatedly remarked that he “wouldn’t be surprised if we couldn’t finish everything” and that we were “eating too much”. It’s true we were letting our groaning tummies call the shots.

We started with Crispy Calamari which was a heap of breaded calamari fried crisp and served with spicy marinara and lemon garlic aioli. Yummy because we were hungry but otherwise, it’s nothing really special.

I’m so crazy about Clam Chowder that I ordered it every where we went. This was a huge bowl and totally scrumptious.

The Texas-style Chicken Fried Steak with mashed potatoes, gravy and steamed vegetables was interesting.

If I wasn’t a fan of angel hair before, this Scampi Pasta totally won me over. There’s a whole mix of textures here – succulent shrimps, delicate angel hair bursting with flavor and a rich sprinkling of Parmesan and parsley. Loved this.

Heard so much about Parmesan Crusted Chicken and now I can confirm this is really good. This was pan fried to perfection and went really well with the white cheddar mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. Loved this also.

And our server was right, we did order too much but pigs that we were, we practically cleaned up everything but still had leftovers.
