When we arrived, all the chairs were on top of the tables. closed! Never had this happen before. Other places on the street said they've been closed sporadically over the past couple weeks.
Went to 20 Brix and had a fantastic dinner.

Restaurant appears to be out of business. Doors were locked, no lights on, and no one was there.

This was the second time in a month I had made a reservationat MJs. The first time there was a sign that they had a gas issue in the kitchen and were closed. On Saturday we arrived and the y were completey closed, as in gone. Please remove them to keep someone else from having this experience!

Open Table, please check to see if the restaurant is open before allowing booking.
We are frequent customers of MJs and were most surprised to discover it was closed after booking a take online.

I would be most interested to discover why it was closed and is still closed. There are no notifications or explanation on the door or anywhere else ?

The service was slow. One friend's meal got "dropped" and took them another 30 minutes to remake, and came out incorrect, so had to be made again. The food was nothing spectacular. They advertise live music at 8. We left around 8:45 and no sign of any music. Overall, we were not impressed!

The food was very good. It took us quite a while to get our appetizer, though. The bathroom - there's only one - was somewhat dirty. The toilet and sink both needed to be cleaned. Overall it was a good experience and we will probably go there again.

We loved our food. I had the lump crab cakes and my husband had the Jambalaya. For an appetizer we had the fried pickles. All very good. I did order the blueberry martini before hand. Good but did not knock my socks off. Short but decent wine list. The only reason I am giving this restaurant 2 stars instead of 5 was due to service. Our waitress was so very sweet and friendly. However the way they have this restaurant set up the service was slow. She had to walk up and down the stairs to the kitchen which makes everything take longer. She did not have busser help which meant my water did not get refilled the whole meal. We wanted to order dessert but didn't feel like waiting longer so we decided to head out and get a dessert elsewhere. To give her credit though I understand they were just closed for a week and came back to a new menu. I'm sure she was just doing her best to keep things seamless. I will come back to this restaurant for sure as the food was tasty. We will likely wait a few months though as they work out kinks.

What a great surprise!! The only problem with the menu was trying to make a choice!! Really good variety so we are already planning to go back to sample other things on the menu. Our server was informative and available but not hovering. The room filled up since we went early but never felt crowded.
We'll be back with friends!!

MJs never fails to impress. The service is always great there and we've never had to wait long to get a table. The food is extremely good and you can tell it is made creatively and freshly. I highly recommend this amazing restaurant in old Milford.

First time at MJ's. Enjoyed the historic nature of the restaurant. Would have appreciate better signage in order to park in back, but then would have missed the beautiful staircase. Menu is varied and artistic presentation of my Fish and Chips was amazing. All dinners were excellent. Our heroic waitress climbed that staircase with food and drinks. Not some place I would work, but I sure would eat their again.

Very energetic bar downstairs. The upstairs dining room opens onto the bar so it can be very noisy. Good food. We had veggie burger, bison burger, sweet potato fries. Half price bottles of wine on Wednesdays. The waitress seemed inexperienced even though she was training someone else!

The bartender was very attentive and helpful. We just got drinks but they were delicious! Small, but nice.

The eatery was located on Main Street and easy to find. Walking into it kinda through me off because we walked into the bar area. We were directed to upstairs to be seated and to check in. Our waitress was Jodi and she made us feel welcome and comfortable. I had the pork chop dinner my wife had fish and chips. It was certainly a good night on the twin for Valentines 2017.

MJ's is always our "go to" place for out-of-towners. Love the food and atmosphere. Not an expected "find" for Milford Oh!! Expect it in larger metro areas, but not there!! A pleasant surprise my wife and I discovered 6 years ago when we moved to the area from NY. Will continue to go back!

Not what I expected. I was looking for a quiet, romantic place to enjoy a date night. This place was loud, crowded and dark. I didn't like how it was in an old house. It just wasn't what I expected

The decor/ambience are industrial grunge, hence the acoustics suffer. Not the place for a quiet meal. Server was friendly and efficient without hovering. The food was just OK. When asked, my wife gave it an overall 3.5,which was exactly the rating I had in mind. I would recommend it more as a "beer and a bite" place than a real dinner venue.
