Trip to New Bern

This restaurant was very crowded for a Monday evening but we were seated very quickly and service was excellent. I had the chicken wrap which was excellent and my husband had that angus burger which he enjoyed... Would definitely recommend and will go back next time.

Unlike so many other seafood restaurants in coastal Carolina, MJ's actually has more than fried seafood. The grilled and steamed menu is fantastic.

I like the small coziness of the restaurant! The crab legs are my personal favorite, my husband likes the platters! Definitely need to try this place for yummy sea food!

Items over priced in general. The slaw was odd tasting though the cat fish was cooked well. Sunday lunch is over crowded and one must get there early for reasonable service.

Probably no better place for seafood of any kind anywhere near New Bern. We are in a rut always ordering from the raw bar even though there are good choices of many other things. Save room for dessert.

Stopped in MJ's for a late lunch. New Bern is a cool town and this place makes it cooler. Great NE Clam Chowder, super fresh oysters, great casual atmosphere. Our waitress was terrific. Give MJ's s visit.

Live near New Bern and we frequently visit MJ's. Love the calamari! We have not had a dish we haven't liked. Definitely a must-stop if visiting New Bern.
