I was VERY pleased with this restaurant. Unless you are looking for atmosphere to "impress" someone, there is no reason to look elsewhere. Excellent food, reasonably priced and above average service.

As mentioned elsewhere, It is an old converted house. Unique in some aspects, but not a "traditional restaurant setting". I was indifferent to the atmosphere. It was clean, had excellent food and my customer was happy.

I will return.

In Greensboro for a conference and 10 of us were looking for a place for dinner after 6:30pm. No one could take our group. After many phone calls someone found this place and they were able to take us. Surprised to find out it was an old house and our table was upstairs. The food and service was very good. We plan to return next year for our conference.

Other than the severe lack of parking (had to go across the street), our first dinner at MJ's was excellent. The scallops/risotto, French fries with cheese/gravy and coconut pie were excellent. The flounder special over mashed potatoes was somewhat heavy and I would not order it again.
Service was excellent.

MJ’s Steak and Seafood is a locally owned restaurant and catering company. It is located in Greensboro, North Carolina on 620 Dolley Madison Road. One of the first things you notice about MJ’s is that it isn’t in a typical restaurant building or space. The restaurant is in a renovated house which helps to define the space as well as providing the foundation for its unique character. The space was converted into a restaurant about 20 years ago. The concentration of the menu is seafood and steak prepared with French cooking techniques. Head Chef Ted states that the seared sea scallops and shrimp and grits are their top sellers. The theme and concept of the MJ’s is southern style, causal fine dining. The restaurant is named after the daughter and granddaughter, Madelyn and Julianna, of the owners Bill and Mindy Calvin. Family influence plays a major role in this restaurant. Their motto sums up the feeling and vibe you will get when sitting down to enjoy a meal at MJ’s Steak and Seafood, it reads “Inspired and influenced by family, friends, and great food.”

Located in a house that has been home to a couple of different restaurants, MJs is a winner. While the name says Steak and Seafood, the daily offerings make this a place to visit again and again. Many "Southern" offerings. Great small patio out back for summer evening dining. One of our regular choices for dinner.
