Love the menu options! I had the crab cake sandwich and it was melt in your mouth good. Ate there twice during our visit! A must if you are in New Bern!

MJ's offers seafood and other food for the ones who doesn't care for seafood. I haven't had a bad meal from there yet. A little pricey, but you're getting good food. Try the shrimp and grits, I think you'll like it.

Get the strawberry salad, it's fantastic! Service is good, SMALL but always have good food. Not cheap eats, but casual. Interior is loud and they do have a small bar. The strawberry salad is enough to get me there...and a bottle of wine.
