“Best Dining Experience i've had in a long time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012

So my boyfriend and I are going to be moving to New Bern soon and this will be a regular place for us I have no doubt. We had the absolute BEST dining experience here! We stumbled upon it accidentally while we were exploring downtown. We didn't get a chance to eat til around 1:45 and this place was packed! which we thought was a good sign! We read the menu on display and found the fare to be extensive and the prices to be a pleasant surprise! Pretty much everything is under $10! But they do offer large platters and more of a dinner fare as well that is priced right for the quality and quantities. I had a Shrimp PoBoy and added buffalo sauce. We also got some of the breaded macaroni & cheese bites (called mac daddies) & wings as they were on 50 cent special. You can also get just one or two, there isn't a minimum amount on the special. The wings were crispy but not dry with lots of meat on them and the mac daddies were definitely worthy of being a guilty pleasure. My Po'Boy was DIVINE. It was perfect and I am not easily pleased when it comes to this as I've eaten them all the country. My boyfriend got the fish tacos and enjoyed those as well. They also have an online menu if you want to browse before you go try. This place is truly excellent!

“Great food in a great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

Mj's is in the heart of downtown New Bern. The food here is consistently good and reasonably priced. This is a great place for a business lunch or a night out.

“A great meal.”

Very pleasant service. The clams on the half-shell were excellent and very reasonable. The food was very good and the price was more than reasonable.

“Great place for seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Me and a few co-workers at here the last night in town. They have everything seafood from oysters, alligator, clams, crabs, etc. Everyone enjoyed what they got. The service was friendly and we didn't have any problems.

One of the co-workers had eaten there almost every night and kept going back he liked it so much.

“very good food at a good price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

We come here at least a couple of times each month for either one of the sandwiches or the fried seafood baskets. One of the few places we've come across that fry seafood (oysters, shrimp, fish) properly - nicely seasoned, not over-or under-cooked, and never greasy! Good selection of beer and we also enjoy the raw bar.
