Had lunch there on our first day and so glad, the food is fresh and the service was great. In fact we went back the next day for more clam chowder.

You can't go wrong with a big pile of hot crispy fries topped with cheese, bacon & scallions! Yum!! That being said....Service needs work. I will cut her some slack - it was a fairly busy Halloween afternoon. However, I'm used to being asked if I want another drink when I'm almost done with the first - not when the... More

Arrived late for a business trip. Starving! M.J.'s was close, servers were helpful, selection was broad and the food was cooked perfectly to order.

My wife and I found this place by accident on an organised trip with 'free' time in the evening. We were so impressed by the food and service we went on a second night, however the background noise is something to contend with, lots of younger business people shouting at each other. Impressed with food & service but background noise... More

Tried the fish and chips, which were pipping hot, but the batter was way too thick and goopy inside. Fries were great, though! What really tipped the scales down to a 3 on our ranking was the poor service. Waited way too long for things in a half empty restaurant on a Sunday night. Service would have been abysmal if... More
