We usually got to Sol Torro when we come to Mohegan Sun because we love their margaritas, unfortunately our reservation was cancelled for cleaning (assuming covid related). We were so bummed but noticed MJ23 Sports Bar and Grill had the Sol Torro margaritas so we decided to give it a shot, omg we were so pleased. The margaritas may have been better than Sol Torro's the food was great the filet skewers appetizer melted in you mouth and the order of Nachos with steak were also amazing! We will definitely be back!

MJ23 Sports Bar and Grill has delicious food and drinks! The waitstaff was extremely friendly and quick. Drinks came out 3 minutes after the order was placed and the managers came around to see how our experience was going. The food was great. Had the brisket grilled cheese, bacon pops, and chicken egg rolls. Highly recommend the grilled cheese and egg rolls. The bacon was a little thick and Smokey for my taste, but still great. We shared the sandwich, and still had 1/2 left after. The waiter noticed we were sharing and cut the sandwich onto separate plates, each with our own portion of fries. It was super nice.

Great sports bar but stick the sandwiches, burgers and apps — the steak and salmon surf and turf was barely mediocre at best — pay a little more for the steakhouse side of the restaurant for steak

Heard great things about the Big Mike burger. Mine was cooked perfectly, but the burger had no flavor and the sauce was lacking. The crispy chicken sandwich also had no flavor, and the fries seemed like cafeteria level. Have had many better meals at big chain sports bars and local pubs.

My Wife and I were there on a Thursday night. Our Server was excellent and has been with MJ's about eight years. My Wife had the fish & chips. Two pieces of fish swimming in a sea of fries, served with coleslaw. She said it was excellent. I had the beef tips. Six small tips of beef done just slightly more than mid-rare in a great teriyaki sauce with peppers & onions over a large amount of white rice. I expected a little more meat in this dish based on our experience at MJ's over the years. I did enjoy it. They were out of our first beer choices but ended up with acceptable alternatives. Overall a fine visit. We've had better experiences here but nobody hits a home run every time up!

We love the food there, especially the Salmon and lobster mashed potatoes. Yum! The service is always great, but with COVID restrictions I have had to make reservations (even though it was in the middle of the week) the last 2 times there since they are serving less people. The ambiance is pretty normal for a sports bar, and with less people the noise level is much lower. Of course it's much more fun to go there when there is a crowd at the bar, but in these times I am happy just to be out in public having a good meal. Great job in handling the new normal.
