This was our first OBX trip, ending the day in an unexpected New Bern visit and overnight stay. After checking into our hotel at 8pm and a front desk inquiry, we discovered half of the 20 restaurants were closed for the night. The top recommendation:...More

We had dinner at MJs. We went at 5 because we were warned that there would be a line at 6 or later. This turned out to be true. At 5 we got a table right away. We had the tribake and the fishermans catch....More

A must stop every time I'm in town. Crabcake sandwich is always great; everything I've had is great. Staff is so friendly. Great local feel.

We had raw oysters and Maine lobsters. The food was outstanding. The local craft beer was great. MJ's was within walking distance from our B&B (Hanna House). MJ's is located on a street in historic downtown.

I've had better crab cakes and tastier French fries, but today's were perfectly satisfactory. The highlights for me were the dozen fresh oysters on the half shell, large, cold, just right salty. They went down too fast. MJ's strawberry salad is excellent, too. In fact,...More

Food was delicious! Between the four of us, we ordered the crab cake, shrimp and grits, seared ahi tuna and lobster poboy. Husband ordered a Bloody Mary that came with all the toppers including a soft shell crab (which I ate). Everyone was happy.

We walked to MJ's Raw Bar & Grille from the Aerie B&B a few blocks away. The town is sleepy after 7 PM and the shops close, I doubt you'd have a problem parking on the street. I don't think they take reservations and we...More
