MJ's Restaurant and Catering
The place was packed, but the food and service was stellar....as always. I tried the Fried NC Catfish and collards tonight, and it was incredible.
We thoroughly enjoyed spend our 23rd anniversary at MJ’s. James provides fantastic service and the food was excellent! We will be back soon.
Took my boyfriend to dinner and was my first time at this restaurant. It was fantastic! The service was amazing, the food wonderful, and the atmosphere was beyond compare. Will definitely go back again soon.
This was our first visit to MJ’s, a birthday celebration. Now that we have discovered this jewel, we’ll definitely make return visits!
Our server was delightful and the food was wonderful!
Great food, great service and great location. The absolute best food in the triad area!!!
I was very disappointed in the salmon. I always order salmon because it is healthy (and I like the taste) ~ the heavy gravy on this dish was a turn off for me. Was this a new recipe? Maybe I normally get the “glaze” on the side. ‘Not sure. But we came here specifically to get the salmon and I couldn’t eat it. Also, I ordered it “medium” and it was rare.
One of my favorites in Greensboro next door to another favorite Mark's. Both are chef owned. On our most recent visit to MJ's the food and service were outstanding. I had the Salmon and my wife had Scallops. Both dishes were cooked perfectly. The food was a little slow coming out but there was a large group upstairs which I am sure accounted for this. Tuesday is half priced wines by the glass so that helped keep the cost for the evening down.
Our Birthday Celebration for our special friend was perfect. The porch setting, wonderful service from Abby, and the food...everyone’s entree was outstanding. Two of us had the trout special, along with shrimp and grits and the scallops were amazing!! Best wine selection too!! This venue is a MUST for entertaining and dining out in Greensboro!!
My go to restaurant which always satisfies with excellent gourmet comfort food, comfortable caring service, a happy smile and genuinely nice people making great food at great prices. I have a customer from VA Beach who always requests going here when they come for the furniture market. A short focused menu for anyone... but more importantly special requests and customization for every need is no problem. Hint... ask for Mindy's desserts... they are homemade and delicious!
MJ’s provides consistent quality of both food and service. It is certainly one of our favorite restaurants in Greensboro.
Very lovely experience
Food, wine, service
Unhurried professional service
We love MJs! Everyone is friendly and food is great!
MJs always has superior food and excellent service. I highly recommend
Alway enjoy MJ’s! Had a delightful evening with my Lady on the back porch. Food was delicious and service outstanding. Music was good too! Can’t wait to return!
This place is truly a hidden gem in our city.. excellent date restaurant, great food from a great chef. I really like how it’s in an old house and still gives you a great interactional dining experience. The place you should go with another person or a small group to just enjoy good food good wine and overall awesome setting. Great outdoor section as well, Like eating in your own back yard.
Blown away. Lived in NYC for 13 years and had some amazing food. Chef Tad creates fantastic dishes which leave you feeling fulfilled and satisfied. The parking lot was completely full so we had to park across the street. The bartender made a delicious chai old fashioned and my wife had a blackberry mojito which was tasty and crisp. I ordered the fish of the day which was fresh NC trout w/ risotto and spinach topped with real crab meat. The crab meat was fresh and not fishy tasting. My god it was a lot of food and moderately priced. My wife had the salmon prepared like the fish of the day. Ally was extremely attentive and thoughtful throughout the entire meal. She was also genuine and not fake like some spots. Don't be in a hurry if you go to MJ's. Just relax, sit back and enjoy the ambiance. The patio is quaint, quiet and spacious. There's a water fountain with wonderful dimly lit lights which add to the atmosphere. Very romantic spot with great food. We will be returning. The menu is short & succinct yet filled with succulent meals that didn't disappoint. My wife had a fantastic birthday desert as well- the banana pudding. Good lord it was like my grandmother made it. Pretty sure I tasted vanilla bean inside. Thx MJ's for a great night filled with good times and thoughtfulness. Cheers.
We were there for 3 hours enjoying great food, conversation and a wonderful pot of coffee. Excellent service at one of my favorite restaurants.
What is not to like?? We are regulars. The 3 ladies sitting beside us had never been, and just tried it based on reviews. They ABSOLUTELY loved it! That is a testament as to what you can expect.
We had a party of 10 and everyone was pleased with their experience! Great food, perfect timing and friendly staff.
Excellent dinners, very pleasant wait staff and ambiance
Enjoyed our evening at MJ’s and plan to return in the future
Such a comfortable place for a truly nice dinner & the food was outstanding. I don't mind paying for such a wonderful anniversary dinner experience.
Lunch with friend.
We celebrated our 22nd Wedding Anniversary at MJ’s.
My wife had the Fried Catfish. The portion size was large and was very tasty - although it had celery salt in the coating and she has an aversion to celery.
I had the medallions of filet mignon which were perfectly done medium rare and delicious.
Service was also outstanding.
MJ’s is an intimate setting perfect for special occasions.
We had a lovely night to sit on the patio to enjoy our dinner. Our server was attentive and food was delicious. Someone in our party requested something not on the menu. The chef prepared a dish similar to his request.
As always, a great experience at MJ's. Great food, reasonably priced, good service in a relaxing atmosphere!
Delicious well thought out menu that has enough excellent dishes to fill your variety wants and tried and true favorite dishes. Excellent desserts... ask for the ones made by Mindy!
From the minute we arrived we were met with a smile and courtesy. The mixed drinks before dinner were spot on ! Once we were seated (upstairs) our waiter was very attentive, but not hurried. He was considerate and answered our questions regarding the menu. After we ordered, the food was brought to us in a timely manner and was warm, tasty and flavored correctly. A very enjoyable evening that we hope to enjoy again.
We always have a wonderful dining experience at MJ's! The Menu has a great variety and food is always fresh and prepared perfectly!
Enchanting evening with great food, exceptional service, and an ambiance reflective of serenity. We love to book when we can at MJ's and are never disappointed.
Food and service were outstanding as always
Amazing how consistently good this place is... it just feels comfortable to be there and the food is delicious with intelligent changes all the time. Short menu but I really like it as customization is never a problem... from lower salt to gluten free.. these people know how to take care of a customer...which makes me a regular here.
We've been going to MJ's for years, and are always glad we did! Tad's creativity shines through in the specials he prepares, and the base menu is excellent, and consistently prepared.
I found my experience to be consistent with what I would expect it to be for the prices.
Awesome as always. We regularly go to MJs. Great service and food.
Tempura haddock was the fish special and it was one modest piece of fish coated with a thick crunchy batter. It was not inexpensive and there was very little fish. It was good, but not great due to the overloading of the batter. Calamari was delicious as an appetizer. Have had better meals at MJ's over the years; this one just missed the mark and of the 4 of us ordered it!
Service I would add a seat coushion. After a while of sitting you will have to readjust yourself to stay comfortable, more than once. With older the clientele I observed this could be a nice comfort.
My husband had the mushroom risotto and it was fabulous. I always get the wood plank salmon and it never disappoints. My husband got steak and ate every bite. I wish it had some ahi tuna and broiled flounder on the menu.
This continues to be one of my favorites. The food is excellent time after time and it is just a lovely dining experience!
