MJ’s Raw Bar & Grille

After staring at New Bern’s river views at Union Point, you may begin to crave some seafood or perhaps a burger in nearby downtown.  New Bern Bear Blog headed over to MJ’s Raw Bar & Grille to check out what looks like the perfect cure for that hankering…

MJ’s is not just a seafood restaurant, we offer, by far, the BEST burger in town, great steaks, sandwiches and salads and wonderful fresh desserts everyday. And if you’re in the mood for some oysters, clams, crawfish, steamed shrimp or dungeness crabs we’ve got them, steamed or raw…. whatever your lookin for!


Affectionately known by locals as just “MJ’s,” the restaurant is owned by Mike Lentz. Lentz celebrates his Maryland heritage through MJ’s signature crab cakes, made with his grandmother’s recipe.  

MJ’s has daily specials, a wide selection of domestic and craft beers, and burgers that really are worth bragging about! Come see why many from near and far have enjoyed MJ’s for nearly a decade.
