"BRIAN". Yes BRIAN! Was the worst server I've ever encountered. I went to MJs in a ecstatic mood. Happy as always. Almost floated from life itself. And Brian grounded me. He not only served the wrong beverage to me and my fiancé and the wrong food (both of which we did not bring to his attention or complain). But he... More

I have been here several times and the food was great. Great selection. Went there tonight and the menu is very limited. They are trying to be a pub now. There is a dining room. If you have a dining room you cant just offer a bar menu. I decided on the chicken and broccoli over angel hair. Awful. If... More

We had the opportunity to dine with family at MJ's a few days ago. There were 8 of us, but the dining room was fairly open on that evening. There is a large sports oriented bar as you enter and a small, fairly hidden room where fresh sushi is served. The dining room looks out over the lake and there... More

Met friends here for lunch on a Saturday. Plenty of room and tables available. Nice atmosphere. Food and drinks were good. Had lunch/ dinner special which was a great buy. Really enjoyed it!

Was a little disappointed in the brunch. The food was lukewarm and apparently they ran out of some of the food that was originally served when they started brunch. The reason I know this, the sign in front of the chafing dish was for another dish entirely. When I asked about it, they told me sorry we ran out of... More

I reviewed this place back in 2014, updating it as I have been there several times for both business & family since then at both the restaurant & bar sections. Atmosphere for both bar and restaurant sections is still nice. They have kept up maintenance and the place is always clean, staff are always nice. They had added a sushi... More

Recently stopped for what I'd hoped would be a quick bite but turned into an hour and a half "self serve nightmare". The bar area dining was grossly under staffed and we waited 15 minutes for a server to come to the table. We ordered nachos (appetizer), California shrimp wrap and a burger. The nachos were served just minutes before... More

Poor service at my party limited food 9inch dish of bagels for 70 people . I told manager about not appropriate amount of staff he said thanks for the feedback. One person was cooking omelets making refills servicing crazy . The other was running out of room constantly . I would never have a party there again.

Thank Dee T
