The food was great, whatever you do please try the bacon pops, they were amazing. It was the second time I ate there in 2 days. The nachos, the wings and the fried chicken Cobb salad to name a few things on the menu. It was three of us and we shared the appetizers.

Great food, great service! My only complaint was that we made our reservation weeks in advance and for the second time the same young lady hostess told us that the booths were reserved for larger parties then the two of us only to watch her seat other parties of two in the both.

Although dining out always has a lot to do with the food, the experience is also very important. Leah, our server, and Dave the manager made our meal very enjoyable. Leah, although steady with her other tables, found the time to talk with us which always makes the dining more comfortable and friendly. Dave checked in on us a few times to see how we were doing and also took the time to talk with us and make us feel special. That kind of service from both Leah and Dave makes you want to go back and dine again. The food is always to our liking but the above and beyond service is what means a lot to us and is why we look forward to our next visit there.

Food presentation is lower than my expectations and the restaurant setting is way lower than most sports bar. It appears like a small food court only using MJ’s name to sell.

This is the 3rd visit in a month and a half . The kitchen staff is always on point . The food is fresh . Chicken wings are off the hook . The service is excellent. Everyone could not be more courteous. The manager Dave was great . I ask if he could put on a Barrett Jackson auction and he was able to do so.

Felt uncomfortable because they were shutting down the restaurant due to someone having Covid or in contact with someone. It made us feel uneasy not knowing who was sick. Would love to eat there with not having to worry about getting sick. Hopefully things will be better soon. It coast me $65 and didn’t get a chance to enjoy it!

My parents and I always make sure to visit MJ's 23 when we're in town. As often as possible!! We especially love the garlic bread tower with bleu cheese fondue. It is so good! And there is a very well rounded menu with so much to choose from that everybody can find something they'll love! Everyone is so friendly and accommodating. Definitely a great place to go!
