On each of the several occasions I have visited BJ Stars, the wait staff as well as the patrons were always pleasant and friendly. Drink prices are standard for the area, but the mixed drinks are made exceptionally strong, providing great value, albeit reason for caution if you're not used to pacing yourself! The kitchen is no longer in operation, so the only foods available are packaged snacks.

The ambiance is a bit unusual, with black lights casting an eerie glow about the place. Space can be a little tight when the bar is full. The layout wraps around the "stage" area for the karaoke singers, though some seating exists in this area as well.

Regarding entertainment, there is a single pool table and a few video games, and they could probably use a few more TVs for the sports fans. But the main draw for BJ Stars is the karaoke, which is held every night except Monday from about 8:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. The sound system is excellent, the video monitors are well-placed and the DJs are entertaining. The song selection is fair, with a particular emphasis on country music, but the rock 'n' roll songs always go over well with the crowd, too.

Overall, the bar may be short on amenities, but for anyone who likes a nice karaoke experience and prefers their mixed drinks packing a punch, BJ Stars offers a fun and pleasant night out.
