My friend and I arrived early and sat at the bar for happy hour there was no one at the front door to greet us and no one at the bar. We sat ourselves at the bar and waited about 10 to 15 minutes before someone came to the front desk and noticed that we were. The bartender was not warm and friendly initially I asked for a drink he mixed it and then put it at the end of the bar he forgot to give it to me. Once my party arrived we sat at a table in which the server was not very accommodating. We asked to sample the red wine and he acted as if it was a bother. The bus staff was a little rude and abrupt.

Had a great experience celebrating my daughter's birthday with friends, Cassandra gave excellent service with a smile, talked to the mgr Danny who was accommodating as well, will highly recommend this place and will be back soon. Also I recommend the French onion soup which is to die for as well the crab cakes, and the best cocktail is the billionaire blood which has 12 year old scotch in it, superb!!

Beautiful ambiance. I don’t know if Michael himself made the Big Mike burger, but it was legendary!! It must’ve been infused with some of his sweat from the 90s! I loved the appetizers and the main course. Garlic bread was excellent and the seafood hush puppies were amazing! 100 thumbs!

We went to celebrate our twin boys 5th birthday because they love Michael Jordan; the service was exceptional! Our waitress (I wish I could remember her name!) was phenomenal and made sure my boys enjoyed their birthday dinner. She took the time to talk to them - and let me tell you, my boys can talk! She wasn’t annoyed, or in a hurry she just listened to them and helped make this birthday special for them. Thank you!

We wanted to watch football in a place with good food.
We were able to easily view the Bears game with a great selection from the menu. The bar area was also empty so it was very quick. We would definitely return even without watching a game.

I visited Michael Jordan restaurant for my 65th Birthday. It was truly amazing . I ordered the filet with crab meat and asparagus. I like my steak well, but some restaurants over cooked them, however This steak was perfect. I learned a new way to order my steak;Medium Well Plus, it was perfect. Also I had the pear cocktail, which has MJ design floating on top of the drink, when I finished the drink the design was still on top, amazing concept. I will definitely visit again. I also received a birthday card signed by Michael Jordan.

The waitress Argelia was wonderful. She was very helpful to my son selecting the wine and the entree. My wife's birthday will be next week. She gave my wife a birthday card. She also gave us complimentary wine because of my wife's birthday next week. She came to our table in a timely manner to ask if we needed anything. The food was also very delicious. Also Argelia took a photo of us when we requested. She also gave us complimentary bread. Best waitress' service ever that i have ever experience.

We were celebrating and the wrong steak was made. Manager came out and ask if we wanted the wrong one instead so it didn’t go to waste. They needed up letting use keep the steak but no compensation was given after having to wait (while everyone else was done eating) for correct order.

Had a reservation but instead of waiting, decided to take a table by the bar. Had a relatively new waitress by the name of Dejah. Made a few errors but was willing to be super apologetic and let us know that she was 4 days out of training. I couldn't get mad for someone willing to own their own issues. She is going to be a great hostess in due timing. The food was good as always. Best wishes to Dejah as she continues her journey at MJ's.

We arrived early from the theatre and the hostess immediately indicated that she would do everything she could to get us seated early. We went and sat by the bar for a cocktail and the waiter immediately indicated that he was aware that we were awaiting a table in the dining room but would do everything possible in the mean time. Drinks were outstanding; strongly recommend the John Wayne! We were seated shortly thereafter, our waitress was superb; answer all of our questions and making recommendations when asked. Food was cooked perfectly and extremely tasty! I have a business dinner scheduled in the next few weeks and am looking forward to another outstanding experience. Well done.

Excellent food. Although the special that our server told us about, he then had to renege as it was sold out! We were there at 4:30! I understand you had been open all afternoon, but still....sold out @ 4:30!?
Bar service was a little slow considering there was no one at the bar and only a handful of tables seated when we were ordering.
That being said my party of 6 were all very happy with their meals. Everyone had a different selection, with the exception of one. Two of us had the white fish.
We don’t dine in this area very often, but we will be returning.

I had the pork chop sandwich and my guest had the salmon. Both had salads. Overall the food was good but let me help you. Your French fries need improving. This is a hotdog and fries kind of town. We know our fries. They have to be hot and glistening. Best served salty. Not just potatoes that were fried and sitting around under a heat lamp for 10 minutes. Don’t treat the french fry like a baked potato. Make them to order. Not in batches and dispensed like scoops of ice cream. If salt does not stick to the fries, they are too old to serve.

We were very disappointed in MJ. We had reservations for a special birthday, and hoped for a fun and interesting dining experience. But, sadly, we were crammed into a window booth, with headlights shining in our eyes. The booth was too low to accommodate even the tallest (6'4") in our party. Service was slow and sloppy. The room was too noisy to carry on a conversation. Tables were jammed together. Food was just okay. Prime rib was mostly gristle. Salmon was sub-par. We will certainly not return, and would not recommend to anyone we like.

Thoroughly pleased with our experience, from the apps to the entree’s everything was consistently good each dish took on its own flavor without one overstating the other. Our server was fantastic, properly attentive. It has more of a gastro pub feel than intimate dining but elegantly casual. Nice wine list and reasonably priced. I would recommend.
