Large table of very loud diners who were having a good time but thankfully there was a door that was closed that helped

The drinks were good. My steak was perfect and the short ribs were good as well. The calamari was bland and very naked. The service would have been horrible if it hadn't been for a fellow server aiding our server who seemed overwhelmed as all parties that came in after us left well before us. We've been here several times before. This was our least pleasurable experience.

The food was great- we had the salmon and the shrimp/grits! In the dining room we were in there was 1 picture hanging and a bunch of empty picture hangers. Ambiance was a bit lacking.

Really nice night at MJs. We had a reservation but it wasn’t terribly busy, probably a sign of CoVid. Service, food and everything were perfect. Goat cheese salad was magnificent. Cheese plate appetizer was spectacular. Only sad part was they were so much we had to split their Friday special of flinders, risotto and collards that was huge and fantastic. Well done. Hope we can get back to normal so they can get back to being busy and full.

The food here is always prepared correctly. The chef mixes up some daily specials with a solid everyday menu. Their drinks are made well and the wine list is well selected and not overwhelming. If you crave seafood in the triad this is the place to go. We try to eat here as often as we can, twice a month or so, and have never had a bad experience. If in season get the soft shell crab!

Had a great meal. We opted to eat outside in the patio. There are a couple of heat towers which made it bearable. It was a quiet night there and the service was great

MJ's is one of our local favorites and we love the option of outdoor seating. It was a beautiful fall evening and they had heaters to knock the chill off. My husband LOVES the Wagyu Burger and it did not disappoint. Highly recommend this restaurant.

MJ's was a much needed night out during the pandemic. Our first server was a little dry, but we didn't think much about it. He was knowledgeable and courteous. The food was amazing!

I’m growing increasingly thankful for this patio oasis! Always delicious food, friendly servers, and a safe place to gather outdoors in a private courtyard with friends. Thank you, MJ’s! (PS...the caramel cheesecake thrilled this girl who normally gravitates to chocolate.)

Excellent outdoor service on their lovely patio. Great drink, delicious fried oyster appetizer and longtime favorite entree, shrimp and grits. Excellent evening all around during a difficult time for restaurants. Support this place so it will be there for us when the pandemic is over!

Everything was fine until it started raining and no one from the restaurant had a plan for all the guests seated outdoors. A server brought us one umbrella when it started to drizzle, for half the table and then we never saw him again.

I work at a restaurant and the management team always have a plan for our outside guests when there is a forecast for rain.

Fabulous experience. The patio is gorgeous with a lovey ambiance. All the dishes we had were absolutely delicious. Whether you want seafood or steak, this place does both perfectly. From the apps to the desserts no one was disappointed. The wine list is top-notch too! Great for a special occasion too.

We had a lovely evening on the patio. The food was delicious. Our server, John went above and beyond to take care of us. When it started to drizzle he and another server brought three umbrellas to our table so we would not get wet. Since we did do not yet feel comfortable dining inside this allowed us to stay and enjoy our evening. Thank you John and MJ’S.

We had a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary with MJs outstanding cuisine. I had a delicious salmon filet and my husband had a superb filet mignon cooked to perfection. The asparagus and mashed potato sides were perfect accompaniments for each dish. Best restaurant in town hands down!

This was our first time out together on a Friday since the all that is going on and we decided to visit one our favorite places. All precautions were taken to the best of our ability. The restaurant all things in place as well. Food was delicious as always. We were in and out within 35 minutes or so.
