Michael John's Restaurant (MJ's)
The server Lizzy did a fantastic job, the food was great and the atmosphere was fantastic
Every aspect was outstanding. Drinks and service by Maddy in the bar was a great way to start the evening. All four people in our party thought their meals were delicious.
Great food. Great service. Everybody enjoyed the night.
Food was spectacular. Drink choices disappointing. No bloody Mary's. Bartender even said it is often requested. So why not offer it? Thanks.
Michael Johns has become our most favorite place to eat. We visit here at least 2-3 times per month and we have NEVER had a bad meal or poor service. The staff is always friendly, personable and professional. The food is tasty and consistent. The seating is quiet and cozy but bigger communal tables are also available. I highly recommend MJ's for any event...business, date-night or just a quick soup and salad!
Outstanding food in a pleasing atmosphere. House salad and beef tips were great.
Excellent service and great food. Didn’t care for sitting next to the front door.
It was our first time there. We loved it!
The service was wonderful with very attentive servers and fun to be with them! The Food was outstanding my husband had the steak special and I had the Veal Piccata!
Great place, been here several times. It nerdy disappoints. Upscale restaurant in Bradenton.
Not our first time at MJ’s. Always enjoy the food and service. Scallops piccata was outstanding! As was my wife’s crab stuffed flounder. Crab cake appetizer started things off on a good note. Optional creamed spinach was excellent as well. We’ll be back!
4 of 5 meals were great. Just avoid the Ribeye. Server was nice very pleasant but stretched too thin. There are several rooms and we would not see her for long periods of time so we assumed she was waiting on tables in the other room. Definitely worth a try perhaps not on an in season weekend.
Smiles from the moment we walked in Spectacular service from Jennifer and Christine. We most definitely will return
This is great place for a special night out as the food has never disappointed us. Nice atmosphere.
Love Michael Johns the wait staff is always very attentive and the food is delicious as I friend said it’s a hidden gem
Never had a bad meal. The food is fantastic and cooked just perfectly. Must have the dirty Caesar salad, just to die for. Good value for everyday meal or celebrating a special occasion. The steaks are fantastic and so is everything on the menu
Excellent food! A bit expensive but worth it! Love the location since we live less than a couple miles away..
Everything was great!! Always enjoy going there! At least you can talk without a lot of noise around you!
Great food! Never a bad meal here!
Yes, the food was very good; and while the server was friendly, it felt like maybe you must have been short staffed by a couple of people.
I heard so much about MJ’s
To begin, I ordered a wedge salad which I assumed would be the traditional wedge with blue cheese and bacon bits. What I got were two bars of lettuce, tough on both ends and covered in an unrecognizable dressing. For entrees, my wife and I ordered different fish selections. One was cod with a piccata sauce. It appeared to be deep fried and covered with something resembling piccata. Not sure what but not good. The other was flounder stuffed with crab. It was better than the cod but not such that we wanted finish either or take them home. While the wine, bread and dessert (pineapple upside down cake with ice cream) were excellent, the entrees and one salad were very disappointing and certainly did not justify the overall expense of the meals.
Our party of eight had a lovely evening at MJ's. Food was great, ambiance was very nice, but more importantly, our waitress, Maddie, could not have been more accommodating and lovely. Thank you for a very nice dinner out with friends.... :)
My palate is still smiling though it has been two days since we had dinner there. Highly recommended.
What an amazing cuisine! We were greeted warmly and felt welcomed throughout stay. Food amazing and wait staff on mark. Most certainly will return.
Always a pleasure to eat here! Fabulous food! Wonderful staff
Great meal, fair service. Staff could work on being a little more pleasant. A little pricey, deserves more courteous servers.
This was our 36th wedding anniversary and could think of no place better to enjoy our night! Service was impeccable, food was outstanding as always. Thank to all the staff for making it a great night.
It was my first time here and I brought my Mom. It’s very close to where I live and has great reviews. What a disappointment. The amuse-bouche was fantastic, and what I hoped to be a precursor to the rest of the meal. The French onion soup was way too sweet. The steaks were not seasoned at all. Nor were the mashed potatoes. I’ve never paid so much to leave so hungry and disappointed. I hope it was just an off night but don’t really want to chance it by going back.
The entire experience was a success!!
Michael John's is our absolute favorite place to dine. The food is outstanding and the staff is very professional and courteous.
Never disappoints! Every chance we get we take friends that have not been to this hidden gem.
Fantastic food and Wien!
Excellent food and service. We love this place....and it's so close!
Michael John's Restaurant is a fine dining experience. From the moment you enter and are greeted, to the moment you walk out the door, Michael John's is without a doubt, a superb dining event.
Great food & service. Love this restaurant. Highly recommend.
Best food south of Tampa
The food was very good. When I made my reservation I stated that it was our anniversary. Although the restaurant wasn't busy, they seated us at a table in the bar; the least desirable place to eat especially on your anniversary.
