So glad we came all the way to Greensboro from High Point to your charming restaurant even though we found out the following morning that a tornado had hit east Greensboro.
Your food was delicious -best tomato bisque! - and our waiter was genuine, attentive and friendly. In fact, all the staff we encountered were personable and lovely.
We'll be back at the next High Point furniture show!

Local restaurant , small, excellent food. Best risotto I’ve ever had. Scallops were cooked perfectly, which most places over cook. Romantic, excellent service, upscale casual. I was pleasantly surprised. It was great

Enjoyed the meal (food/services was great), however with the noise level upstairs it was difficult to carry a conversation. Now in fairness, this was due to the low ceilings and a birthday celebration with a large group going on upstairs as well. Once it warms up, we will opt for outside dining!

Had the sea scallops and OMG! They are delicious and come with Garlic Shrimp Mashed potatoes...what is that? DELICIOUSNESS! Treated myself to a couple of Signature Cocktails, they were pallet satisfying and generously portioned.

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!

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!
