MJ's Restaurant and Catering Ratings and Reviews
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.
Had a dinner for 6 to celebrate my best friend’s 60th BD—actual dinner was Friday November 10th. I/we have been regulars typically at MJ’s 1-2x every 2-3 week’s. Had the worst service for an 845p weekend reservation. Waiter was new to me/us, seemed very put off and unenthusiastic about serving us. Maybe he didn’t like the late reservation. I had called earlier to notify the restaurant that my friend’s wife would be bringing a birthday cake and the $1 per plate serving fee would be just fine. They/the waiter was completely unprepared and again seemed put off at the additional plating. As for the food...it unfortunately was below average that night with the lamb osso bucco too fatty and the filets average. Typically the service at MJs has been stellar and polite. We were pretty insulted that night. Probably will hold off going there again for awhile, may not ever return. Fortunately there are plenty of other fine dining restaurants in our area.
My wife and I had dinner at MJ's for our 2nd anniversary. We have dined here quite a few other times and love to sit on the patio depending on the weather. I noticed when we were seated that there is a lot of weeds that have grown up on the patio and overall it has just gotten very dirty over the years. The menu has also gotten smaller with less options but still plenty of great things on the menu. I had the shrimp and grits and my wife at the filet medallions. We both loved loved the food. Overal still a good experience but it would be nice if the menu at the restaurant matched their menu on their website and if they could just spend a little time making the patio nicer.
Heard about this place from a friend who claimed it was his favorite place in Greensboro. I have to say it is now mine as well. My girlfriend and I split a bottle of wine and the wild boar flatbread. I ordered the salmon (buttery smooth) and she ordered the shrimp and grits (perfection). MJ's is definitely pricey but it was 100% worth it.
What a gem of a place! Super nice people, service was attentive and fabulous. Food was amazing! Fried Green tomatoes and Pimiento cheese to start. Great breading and taste. Tomatoes were firm and not mushy. Shrimp and grits with Chorizo. Not too spicy but with a great little kick. Scottish Salmon with risotto. Licked the plate clean. I can't say enough. We could have eaten here every night this past weekend. Can't wait to come back.
MJ's is that perfect discovery that you need to share with friends. Chef Tad seldom disappoints and his food is unbelievable. Becca and Hannah are servers/ hostesses who are impeccable in their taste and recommendations. This is, by far, my favorite place to bring friends!
This restaurant is a delightful surprise, and once discovered you find yourself wanting to go back again and again. Chef Tad is remarkable. All the guests I have taken have enjoyed every morsel of their food! This is, indeed, my favorite place to dine. The staff is unbelievably charming and knowledgeable.!!
Had an excellent meal celebrating my wife's birthday. Food was prepared well, presented esthetically pleasing, and served professionally. I had the Texas Pete Catfish which was delicious. My wife had the crab cakes which likewise was excellent, but required a doggy bag due to the ample portion. Recommend for a special occasion or if you want to make an occasion special.
Always a crowd pleaser. A handful of appetizers, salads, main entries, and dessert options that make it easy to choose, and all well done. They have no problem customizing any dish to be perfect for you. Traveling for a living I am fortunate enough to eat at some of the finest places in this country. This beauty takes a second seat to none of them, and an incredible value. Don't miss their well thought out, and priced, wine list. They make it so you never want to cook at home. Kudos!
Great place. We've been here maybe 6 times in the last year. Food always excellent as is the service. Not stuffy at all. The place can get warm sometimes and we'd like to see the a/c kicked up a little. It can also get noisy when the room is full which detracts a bit from the overall experience. However, it is definitely a place we will be back to often.
