We were killing time and decided to stop in for a drink at the bar. Looked over the menu and saw a GREAT selection of apps (and entrees)... we tried the alligator bites, excellent. Not over fried nor chewy. Dipping sauce, a little kick.. Also had the MD crab chowder, a little over watery in the broth, but the veggies... More

This is a great place for casual dining. You can even bring your dog along at the outside dining area where the wait staff makes sure he/she has a fresh water bowl. The atmosphere is very casual which makes for a great place to eat if you just want to go,as you are after a busy day of sight seeing.... More

Highly recommend stopping in for fresh made to order local seafood. Stopped here on my last night in the area. Had the best shrimp & grits! The right size portion and perfect seasonings. Also had a great apple crunch cake for dessert. Yum!

It is always subjective to use the "best of" title, but when we want seafood in New Bern, MJ's is our choice 99% of the time. If the day is pleasant, snag one of the outdoor tables. If not, we usually sit at the small bar, snack on the endless peanuts, sip a craft beer and wait for our food.... More

We were seated quickly even though it was a Saturday night. We ordered steamed oysters and also an oyster po boy. Both were delicious and fresh. The French bread of the sandwich was perfectly soft inside and crispy-flaky outside.

Over several trips to the city of my nativity, I have been continually disappointed by the food. In fact, I complained about a seafood restaurant in Havelock which we visited three or so weeks ago. Today, the culinary reputation of the region was redeemed by our lunch at this restaurant. My flounder sandwich was actually FRESH flounder. For a mere... More

We ate a MJ's twice while on vacation in New Bern. Both times all 4 of us were very satisfied with our meals. The first night we tried the hot crab dig & the mini crab cakes for appetizers - both were excellent with an abundance of crab. I had the shrimp & fry basket (listed as an appetizer, but... More
