MJ's Restaurant and Catering
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!
Regular customers. Really love the food and ambience and great service.
Love this place! Chef Tad is very talented and makes delicious meal that he can somewhat customize, the staff is so friendly and accommodating, and the environment is so warm and welcoming.
Due to it's small size, it can be a little cramped. The food and wait staff where very good.
Great dinner with friends.
Never disappointed! Food is of the highest quality and service was extremely friendly. Always enjoy dining 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.
This was the best meal I have had in a LONG time! The food was outstanding and the service was just as good! I wish I would eaten here a lot sooner! I will tell everyone to visit this restaurant!!!
Loved our family meal here & catching up with our NYC son. Delicious food for all & feel as though eating in Grandmother’s back porch. Everyone so friendly but best of all a place for family to come together & enjoy catching up over a good meal. Delicious catfish & vegetables!
Love the porch and patio. Entree was delicious! Thanks for supporting our schools. Used a coupon!
This restaurant is always excellent time after time. The grilled salmon is easily one of the most delicious I have ever eaten! This is a perfect place to take friends and family for a festive lunch or dinner.
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.
Best restaurant in town!
Wonderful dinner. Great service, terrific food and reasonable pricing. Don’t know why we don’t come back again and again. Well done in every way. Thank you MJ’s!
As usual the food was very good but we did request a table upstairs through email and open table both and received confirmation this would happen however we were seated on the first floor. Other than that I would have given five stars.
Celebrated a birthday with a friend. We’re looking forward to our next visit.
We went for our anniversary last night. As usual the food was amazing, service was excellent. We really like MJs!!
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
So great very small dining room.... food is very good and inventive....we sat at the bar... only seats available .. service was good.... always is at bar seating..... would like to go back and have table service.... haven’t been able to score a reso........ we live out of town so we really don’t know when we will b in the louis.......I highly suggest this place ... but brook out early for a table ..... or thro the dice for a bar seat.....
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.
