Complimentary tastings are always available.

I would like to highly recommend MJ's restaurant for any of your upcoming events that you may be planning. We were recently married and held our reception here and were very impressed.Sent on 09/24/2013
We, as most couples do, searched and met with multiple caterers and reception halls only to become discouraged by their lack of professionalism and all but warm welcome. When we finally found MJ's, we knew from the very first meeting with Mindy(owner) that this would be our place. Their attention to detail and willingness to meet with us within OUR schedule was unparalleled. The ambiance of the restaurant coupled with the amazing food and it's presentation were all that we could have hoped for.
Again, if you are looking for a high-end, reasonably priced venue for an event, this is the place..!! Thank you for everything Mindy.!

If you have ever eaten at MJ's Steak and Seafood, you know how awesome their food is. The chef and catering coordinator worked with us to design just the menu we wanted and provided an awesome evening of tasting. From the passed hors d'oeuvres to the roast duck and shrimp and grits, everything was great. Their service left nothing undone and were easy to work with.Sent on 01/06/2013
