Fine Dining

Part of Cornerstone Restaurant Group

Located side by side at the Mohegan Sun Resort & Casino, the newly renovated Michael Jordan's Steak House, and the iconic MJ23 Sports Bar and Grill offer two unique opportunities to eat like Mike.

We can promise our guests excellence, and only we can claim to be the Michael Jordan of Steak Houses. How do we rise to this level? It starts long before the steak hits the plate, before the doors open or the lights go on. It starts with a conviction, a way of doing things that elevates the king of meals to the Michael Jordan level. We have a unique word to tell the world what we stand for: A belief in the steak, not the sizzle. It’s in everything we do, and it’s only found at Michael Jordan's Steak House.

Chronicling the illustrious career of the greatest athlete to ever play the game, MJ23 Sports Bar and Grill is your headquarters for everything Michael Jordan. At MJ23, we’re dishing up greatness with every drink, meal and televised sporting event.
