Vegan Options at BJ’s Brewhouse (Updated 2023)

BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse Vegan

BJ’s has a great selection of vegan-friendly menu items but be aware, they will be on the lighter more whole foods side. No bar food is what I’m getting at unless you are ok with the fried items sharing a fryer with animal menu items.

If so, you could order chips, guac and salsa or fries. 

We suggest their Brewhouse Bowl (with modifications, a salad (with modifications) or make a combo plate of their sides. 

Here is everything vegan at BJ’s Brewhouse!
