This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and BJ’s Restaurants, but all my opinions are my own. #DineInOrderAhead #pmedia  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Oh how I do love me some food. Eating out is a love of mine that tops the list of things I truly love. I know, I know-shocker. Time out with the girls after a long day of shopping- is just something that is on the top of the top. Something about the ambiance out at a restaurant- the drinks, the food, the atmosphere is simply just phenomenal. If you cruise by my Instagram feed you will notice a few things: beauty-of course; family, friends and of course food and beverages. This picture was posted last week when I out and about on an after work dinner- #muchneeded. Drinks, appetizers, salad- yum, yum, yum. Time for me to introduce you all to A Mobile App Like No Other- BJ’s Style

I am a avid BJ’s Restaurant lover. When I think of BJ’s  I think of the brews on tap, the amazing walls of great tv’s showcasing sports games from all various area of the world, and of course the pizookie-yeah the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Pizooki straight ROCKS! Well now being ahead of the restaurant game BJ’s decided to come out with something like no other in the form of – drum roll….a mobile app. The app is available for both iPhone and Android, so all the bases are covered- making it easy to get a table within minutes, easy to order your meal ahead-all at the courtesy of your smartphone without a hassle. Can you say love, love, love!

Lets talk about how easy this mobile app seriously makes life- download the app, check your location, confirm your party size, and hit the menu. Select your choices from drinks, appetizers, salads, entrees and dessert. Hit confirm and head to your location of choice, greet the hostess and give them your name. Within minutes your order is put in, and your easy and I mean super easy evening is ready to begin!

Seated at the table, our waiter came over, confirmed our order choices, congratulated us on utilizing the app and chatted with us about the ease of the features. After bringing us our beverages  our appetizers arrived within minutes. Let me just say the fried artichokes and mac & cheese are simply AMAZING. Literally- AH-MAZING!

Followed by a paced out meal, some refills on drinks equaling a seriously amazing evening.  Here is the best part of it all, you can even pay your bill via your smartphone as well. Yep- I sure did say- YOU CAN PAY YOUR BILL ON YOUR PHONE. How seriously genius is that? NO waiting for the waiter to come back, no waiting for change- nada. Just log back into the app, hit “mobile pay“, enter your credit card information, tip amount, and use the easy sign square to sign your signature before pressing confirm. 1,2,3- Voila! The bill is paid and your ready to go.

    How awesome is this? I need a BJs in my neck of the woods!

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      I agree you totally need a BJ’s out there. I am surprised they arent on the Mid-West- full East Coast yet. :( They totally should expand that way.

  • Anastasia

    Wow, this is so convenient! They need something like that for all of my favorite restaurants :)

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      I totally agree. I wish all restaurants had apps. Dining would be wayyyyy easier for sure.

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    Very cool app! I am mystified, however, because the only BJs in this backwater of suburban Boston is BJs Warehouse Club. Is it the same BJs??

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      Hmmmm… I am wondering. I think the BJ’s Warehouse Club is like a Costco, but totally not sure. That would be awesome if it was the same thing though.

      • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

        Yes, it’s exactly like Costco, and I believe it’s based in MA. I have never heard of BJs restaurant, but it sounds very innovative !

    Last time we were there, they had a $5 coupon for using mobile pay. It was a hassle for all the parties at our table. Hopefully, it’ll get smoother as time goes on. Great idea, though!

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      Oh what a bummer. I think that they are totally gonna work on the kinks in the app. I can totally see how it would be weird and a hassle cause if the app only registers one phone, etc… I hope the next time you go, it is way less of a hassle. :)

  • http://www.cosmeticsaficionado.com/ Cosmetics Aficionado

    You know, I have gone by their restaurant many times without stopping in. Guess I should!

  • http://www.painted-ladies.com/ Sheila Arkee

    I am totally going to try this!

  • http://www.clumpsofmascara.com Brittany

    I LOVE BJ’s! I was recently there with some of my Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida sisters and we loved the app. But yeah, like Nidia said…using coupons isn’t so hot but hopefully they’ll work out the kinks because it is a very nice looking app.

    I’m all over this. I loooove the pizookies :)

    I love going there, I just went there this weekend actually!

  • http://libbyspinkvanity.blogspot.com Kimberly

    It’s official: I’m old-fashioned. I love holding a real menu and flipping it back and forth. LOL

  • http://www.manifestdestany.com/ Destany

    Never heard of this restaurant… but it sounds nice.

  • Cindy Ingalls

    I’m old, I prefer a “real’ menu

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      You are so NOT old. One of my best friends is the same way, loves to hold the actual menu and read everything. Not a picture on a phone with a small description. lol

    Ray and Dave and I love BJs. They always enjoy their beer selection.

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      Agreed. They have some great beers and yum ciders too. Berry burst is one of my faves. lol…

  • Alison Freisz-Steward

    We don’t have a BJ’s, but an app like this for a restaurant in our area would be awesome!

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      I wish all restaurants would have apps. It would make a ton of things easier. lol

  • Norah Salazar

    Next time I am in LA I’d love to go there! We don’t have this here on the northeast.

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      I am so shocked they dont have them out there yet. But for sure when you are in LA, it is pizookie time. lol…

  • http://www.mynewestaddiction.com/ Laura

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE BJ’s. I have gone there like 10 times in the last few months

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      ha ha ha,.,.. me too. Addicted to a White Chocolate Macadamia Nut pizookie and the Chopped salad. :)

  • http://www.beautybymissl.com/ beautybymissl

    This kind of app is something for me!

    • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

      Totally agreed. I wish all restaurants would have a app. lol

  • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

    100% agreed. I now wish all my fave restaurants would have a app. lol… Quick in and out when you want to be in a hurry but eat good food. Perfect for people with kids too.

  • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

    I dont think you guys do yet either. :( Too bad Cheeseburger in Paradise doesnt have one. They are always crowded..

  • http://www.makeuplifelove.com/ jamie @makeuplifelove

    You should totally try it. I will say though, once you do- you wish all restaurants had an app. lol..

  • http://www.honeygirlsworld.com/ Honeygirlk

    I love apps that offer foodie options for restaurants, take out, etc. This is great.

  • Pink Sith

    If I lived near a place like this I would try this app. :-)

  • http://www.blushingnoir.com/ Brooke @ Blushing Noir

    I’ve never heard of this place, but I want it.

  • http://theplasticdiaries.com Kimmi @ The Plastic Diaries

    I’m hungry now. And I’ve already eaten dinner. GREAT! Haha

  • Amanda

    Brilliant idea!
