Finally got to MJ on our fifth trip!! Excellent is all I can say. From the appetizers to the mains and the souffle dessert it was fabulous. The portions are probably larger than they need to be and can be shared for a $7 charge....More

All the hype about this place, and it did not deliver. I felt the food lacked flavor and freshness. To be by the water, I would expect fresher seafood than what they served. They even ruined the oreos fritters, which were soft and just tasted...More
