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 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.

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.

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.

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.

MJ’s is a perennial favorite, and this visit was fully up to expectations. It was unusually quiet on Friday night - maybe everyone was at the beach or the mountains trying to get away from the heat. Very nice server, as well.

Must have needed additional wait staff Saturday night. Had 7:00 pm reservations; did not leave restaurant until 10:30. Very long time between courses. Appetizers and drinks were wonderful but all of our main entrees were lacking. Service was excellent.

We really enjoyed our night at MJ’s. The service was terrific - very friendly and timed our food perfectly. Unfortunately my scallops were over-cooked which was disappointing. The poke was great and my wife said her crab cakes were wonderful.

Delightful find, comfortable & welcoming. First time here but won’t be my last. I recently relocated from coastal Connecticut and the scallops here exceeded any I had back in New England! Sweet, tender, fresh, I will run out of superlatives and still not capture how good they were. My wife went turf and had a perfectly prepared filet mignon. The waiter and all the staff were helpful, friendly and never intrusive. Just a terrific find!
