Family really is at the center of BJ’s Pizza and Subs, for this is the only restaurant on St. George Island that’s still owned by the original founders. A family-owned restaurant that’s been around for three decades, the owners really know how to take care of all generations. You’ll find good food, reasonable prices and a relaxed atmosphere — which is a winning combination for any family meal.

Pizza is the mainstay at BJ’s Pizza and Subs, and they certainly know how to do pizza well. The crusts are handmade, and the sauce is rich. A total of 16 different toppings create almost endless possibilities depending on how adventurous your group’s tastes are, and there’s always the go-to specialties if you’re unsure of what to get. From the classic Pepperoni Pizza to the local favorite Shrimp Pesto Pizza, there are options for everyone who enjoys a good pie.

Accompanying the pizza are all of the standard sides that you’d expect, including Jumbo Buffalo Wings (in five flavors), Breadsticks and Cheese Bread. Calzones are also on the menu if you prefer a pie that’s folded over and has some ricotta in it.

For something a little healthier, choose from various salads, sandwiches, wraps, and hot and cold subs. Some of these are common pizza joint offerings, such as the BJ’s Hot Italian Sub and Meatball Sub. Others are more unique choices, like the Crab Bites, Southwest Wrap and Philly Roast Beef Sub. With such variety, you’re bound to find something on the menu that sounds good even if you don’t want a traditional pizza.

To help quench thirst, a variety of non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks are available. Iced tea, soft drinks, bottled water, juice boxes beer and wine are all offered.

All of this is served in a place where you’ll feel comfortable dining in a beach coverup, shorts and sandals, or something similarly relaxed. With regard to prices, pizzas range from $8.49 to $24.99 depending on size and number of toppings. Most other menu items are under $10.

Pizza is a regular go-to meal, and few places do it as well as BJ’s Pizza and Subs. For a classic crowd-pleaser right on the island, stop in here and get your favorite pie.

A few of our menu favorites at BJ’s Pizza and Subs include:

BJ’s Special
Don’t know what toppings to get on your pizza? Go with BJ’s Special and get everything. The only toppings left off are anchovies, jalapenos, broccoli and pineapple, all of which you’re welcome to request.

Pepperoni Pizza
A popular classic, Pepperoni Pizza is always a good choice. The pepperoni offers a little something extra for those who don’t want plain cheese, and the meat can always be pulled off if someone in the group would prefer no pepperoni.

Jumbo Buffalo Wings
Choose from mild, hot, BBQ, spicy BBQ and sweet, and get some wings to share. They’re served the way wings should be, with bleu cheese or ranch on the side at no additional cost.

Chicken Cesar Wrap
The Chicken Cesar wrap is a healthier alternative, and it’s perfect for eating on a hot summer day. There are enough protein, starch and vegetables to keep you going, but the wrap won’t feel too heavy in your stomach.

Crab Bites
One of the few kinds of seafood on the menu, the Crab Bites aren’t to be overlooked. Served with tartar sauce as an appetizer, they’re the perfect island accompaniment to your pizza.

Insider Tip:
– The family-friendly atmosphere here isn’t limited to only bipeds. If you have a four-legged canine in your group, dogs are welcome on the outdoor porch. Ask for some water for your pooch, and Fido would probably appreciate a slice of pizza too.
