We try to eat at MJ23 whenever we are at Mohegan Sun. We love the fried calamari because of the fried banana peppers that come in it. This time we had a mix of jalapeño peppers and cherry peppers. We were only a little dissatisfied but still devoured our plate. Both of us got burgers and unfortunately they were very undercooked. We ordered medium but they were really red. It took a long time to get our food and refills on drinks so we just ate them as they were to avoid waiting a long time for replacement burgers. Over all it was a good experience we will still eat here every trip to the casino

Burger was excellent, but I thought the grilled cheese sandwich could have been better. It was very dry. Service was excellent.

Had a reservation for 2, but my wife was ill. Showed up alone and in line. A woman came to me and asked if I had a reservation and seated me immediately at a 4 top-only table open. I was treated royally by my server who I expected to be upset that I was taking up a good table in her busy station. Took a meal back to the hotel. Great experience-thanks.

The food was good,service very good.However this sports bar fails and disappoints being branded as a Jordan name sake.
Multiple tvs had same game next to each other, very bland decor doesnt do Mr.Jordan any justice ,cant imagine he would be happy with this sports bar.
We had prime rib and for 140.00 bill the experience isnt worth it. A local pub with sports is much better value at third of the price. Peoe will be drawn to mj23 because of Mr.Jordan and him being the greatest, this sports bar lets his legacy down. Sorry I cant reccomend.

The skewer appetizer and the egg rolls were really good! The Caesar salad had way too much garlic in the dressing. The Wedge salad was in the form of a ball, and not a "wedge--quartered" but was really good and the presentation was nice! Just wish they didn't keep changing the channels on some of the TVs constantly when you are watching a particular team. Also, there was only one TV on with the NY Giants as this is a home team after the Patriots.

On site to attend a show. Made a last minute reservation on a very busy night and our table was ready and waiting . There were no open tables and the line was forming.
Our server had a great handle on the menu including specials. Drinks were brought quickly and glasses were kept filled during our meal.
We never felt rushed even with how crowded it was .
We went with the chicken nachos (huge portion full of hand pulled spiced chicken) and the crispy chicken with bacon (again a huge portion/patty served on an oversized roll.
We had no room for desert but looked at their desert menu which looked great.
Great start to the evening , thanks

Went before an afternoon of college basketball at the arena. Fun watching the wrap around tv’s - upscale sports bar atmosphere. We had limited time before the games and waiter was great about getting us our drinks and food quickly. Food was good - stuck to nachos and burgers - but we were happy with our choices.
