Excellent food and service. Ate outdoors with plenty of spacing between tables and waiters all had masks, so felt reasonably safe.

In our dates of distancing, this was the perfect place. We were outdoors separated from other guests. And, of course, the food was gourmet.

We sat upstairs & it was so nice & quiet. We could converse without shouting, although we could hear some of the noise from downstairs. It was a pretty cold day & it was a bit chilly upstairs, but the waiter was able to turn the heat up a bit. The crab cakes were delicious & the waiter was attentive without being annoying. I will definitely return.

It was special occasion, my wife’s birthday. The oyster tacos, the fried quail my wife had, and the rudder fish I had were fantastic. The complimentary apple pie ala mode was also top notch. We enjoy the food, service and atmosphere every time we eat here.

Food has not been as good of late. Crab cakes entree was so so. They were flat like a hamburger and not as good as other places I’ve been to. The other items were also so so. I hope that this s not the trend. I will return with hopes that things will improve. The calamari was excellent.

We went on the recommendations from some friends and we were not disappointed. The place is so quaint and everyone from the hostess to the waiter to the manager was so hospitable. We had an undercooked steak at our table and they remedied it very quickly. I highly recommend the food and service at MJ's!

We had salads and soup for lunch. The coffee was fresh pressed. No bread was offered. The chicken tasted off. The house is old and has character, but is starting to lean to seedy. The wait staff was very attentive and refilled our water often. It was ok but not worth the prices.

MJ's Restaurant delivers so well in so many different areas. The ambiance is intimate with several rooms for dining each containing a few tables. The service is superb, professional and unpretentious. The menu is full of delicious options with daily specials to make it even more difficult to choose!

We have previously really liked MJ's but the prices have gone higher and the value just is not there. Hate that. We need a nice place to dine, but $42 for an entree is just too much as you then add the salad ($12), glass of wine ($12) and you are getting really expensive for what you get.

I have been to MJ's several times and the food has always been outstanding. I took my boyfriend there on Saturday for his birthday and we both ordered the Chilean Sea Bass special. He is allergic to dairy so they offered him coconut curried rice and vegetables. I ordered the mushroom risotto and asparagus. Our server wasn't even the person to deliver our food and he brought two of the same dish, and the vegetables were mushrooms. Not exactly what we were expecting. When our server came to check on us, I told her my dinner was wrong and she promptly apologized and offered to change it but we had already been sitting a while and I said it was fine. When we each bit into the fish, it had an extremely fishy taste, which Chilean Sea Bass is NOT supposed to have and it was very salty. Needless to say, we did not eat the meals prepared for us and no manager even bothered to come speak with us. I was highly disappointed because my boyfriend had never been there and now he will never go back.
