I had the scallops and they were amazing. They were cooked perfect and my fiance had the salmon which was also amazing. Everyone at the table cleaned their plate and I couldn't have enjoyed a meal anymore than this one.

My husband and I truly loved the food, it was our first time to dine at MJ’s! The ambience needs a little something, maybe dim the lights and add some music would be nice. We could here the conversation of the neighboring table.

What an awesome find for a college parent weekend! Our first time meeting daughter's boyfriend AND having dinner at MJ's turned into a wonderful experience (yes, he's pretty amazing, too!). We definitely have this on our list for warm weather to try out the patio.
Seating was cozy and in the upstairs part. The scallops were amazing (my favorite) but all agreed that their dishes were excellent, from the steak to the fish special for the evening. Can't wait to get back there!

Lovely restaurant in an old house, close but was actually quiet. Large menu with many choices. Food excellent. Wait staff friendly. We were meeting riemds we hadn’t seen in awhile and was great place to chat eat and enjoy. Bar looked nice as well.

We have been going to MJ's since it opened. In our opinion it's the best restaurant in Greensboro. Entrees very well-balanced with seasonal offerings.

Trust is the word that comes to mind about MJ’s. For lunch, dinner, or a drink, you can trust that the environment will be cozy, comfortable and welcoming. The food and drink will be just right. But their standards for just right are others’ definition of perfection. And their folks on the floor will feel like friends when they greet and serve you. MJ’s is right for everyday lunch or special dinners. Trust me!

A wonderful lunch experience. My friend had oyster tacos and was going to take one home to husband but was so delicious she ate teem both. I ate the best chicken salad sandwich I have ever eaten in my entire life. Best lunch we have enjoyed together for a long time. Our waiter was informative and friendly and always smiling. I loved every single moment.

Good food, great service, but very loud. Low ceilings and small rooms make for poor noise control. There is a definite need for something soft on the walls to absorb some sound.

Tried to find a cozy location with good food for our anniversary, and I came across this restaurant. Food was simplistic yet excellent, but service was just so, so.. for this type of restaurant. This is a great cozy little restaurant with properly trained Chef at the helm.
