You can get homemade food to go. The chicken and dressing is delicious. Also the grape salad and chicken spaghetti. I haven’t had anything here that wasn’t delicious!

Hands down the BEST lunch spot in Newport. Home cooked specials of the day, including all their wonderful sandwiches and sides. Grape Salad, Chicken Salad are my FAVES. Great desserts and ready made items in the cooler for a quick week night meal.

Best chicken salad ever! Great food and service! You must visit MJs for lunch. Great desserts and the unsweet tea is a southern treat!

Great place to eat. The soups are fabulous along with the cornbread. The take home meals are fabulous. Also don't leave before you get the grape salad.

I've eaten at MJ's many times over the years and have never been disappointed. The lunch menu is simple but delicious. (The best chicken salad and homemade desserts you'll find anywhere!!) MJ's catered a seated dinner for me and the beef tenderloin was outstanding as...More
