My brother and I do monthly dinners and he's southern NJ and I'm northern NJ so we try to meet in the middle. I found this place through google. It is a chain so there's a few around. This one had decent bar food. We split mozzarella sticks (which were obviously from a box) and had a pizza. The pizza... More

MJ's has pretty good food with a nice view; try to get a table by the window to see the small waterfall in the back of the building. The "Granny Pie" is one of the best pizzas around while there "French Onion Soup" is really top notch. A reliable choice in Tinton Falls.

Great place for lunch or dinner with friends or family. We sat upstairs near the bar and enjoyed the food and the company. They offer a quick lunch and a full menu. I had a very good spicy chicken sandwich, one friend got a very good burger and the third got a personal pizza. Food was good and service was... More

My husband and I plus another couple went to MJ's Bar & Grill for New Year's Eve. It really was the only place open at 10:30 or so. We didn't want to go far after church, so we decided to go there. I had the crab cakes and they were absolutely delicious! My husband had the turkey club and it... More

My husband has been teaching a Saturday culinary class. I have been assisting him. The class runs from 10am to 2pm. By time we are finished we are famished. Last weekend we stopped at MJ's on the way home and were completely satisfied. On a cold, dreary snow/rain day MJ's was warm and toasty and their food hit the spot.... More

Seems as if we may have come on a bad night. Slow service, sub par food. Didn't seem to live up to the other MJ's in quality.

While MJ"s is really just your average sports bar/family restaurant, I am constantly pleased with the consistent quality of food and service I have received here. The staff have always been very friendly to my wife, young daughter and I, and we enjoy stopping in for cold beer (always something new on tap) and great burgers (including the turkey burgers!)....

Quick easy stop for a pizza and a beer. Picturesque waterfall needs a little caring to but the open air , high ceilings make up for a whimsical atmosphere,
