My husband and I ate lunch here while attending the Main Street NC conference in New Bern. It is an attractive place, with seasonal outside seating. The menu is extensive, with some good choices. Service is prompt and cheerful. My husband had the oyster po boy and sweet potato fries, both of which were excellent. My crabcake sandwich was disappointing,... More

Sailing ships and other boating decor sets the scene for a wooden booths with a mini sports bar in the back. It's not just the atmoshpere, but the cheerfully served tasty food and the clientele (local business folks and visitors, like a pastor getting the low down before stepping in front of a congregation). A range of entrees are served... More

We dine weekly at MJ's - mainly for lunch - and occasionally for dinner. This is a very casual spot with rotating artwork decorating the walls and a lively bar scene in the back.
