My wife and I chose McEwen's for our anniversary and were not disappointed. She had her favorite sweet potato encrusted catfish and I tried the New York strip for the first time. The steak went down in history as one of the top 3 steaks I have ever had. Our waiter suggested the strawberry cobbler for desert. It was a unique twist on an old favorite. I look forward to our next visit.

My son and I dined here before a Grizzlies game. Service was prompt and the food was outstanding as is the case every time I go to McEwen's. I had the goat cheese salad and the scallop entree. My son had a Caesar salad and the fish special which was fresh Gulf grouper with a tomatillo sauce. The food was excellently prepared and served hot. I highly recommend McEwen's on Madison in Memphis.

As someone born and raised in Memphis, for me to come bCk home for a business trip and reintroduce myself to McEwen's was special. This is a quaint place with character, perfect place for an intimate dinner or an important business engagement.
The food quality was exactly how I remember it, outstanding! Personnel know their menus and wine list and are friendly and helpful. Don't miss out on this wonderful place.

Had dinner here with my son. We had previously dined at their location in Oxford, MS. The food was outstanding. I had barrel fish with a crawfish sauce which was excellent and I am not a fish guy. We really enjoyed our dining experience.

we were in from Dallas for the weekend and really enjoyed our meal there - everything was solid from service to food and great desserts - nice wine list too (not too pricey) which I find the be both refreshing and much appreciated! Highly recommend it!

What a delightful meal! Service was attentive without being intrusive, and food was outstanding. Charming environment. My wife's dietary restrictions were accommodated easily without lessening the meal. The chef even came to the table to be sure her needs were addressed in the kitchen. A real highlight of our weekend in Memphis.

Disappointed, Took business clients hoping to impress. Salads were served incorrectly and removed when none had been ordered. Entrees also served incorrectly. Refills on beverages had to be requested. Ambience was loud, crowded and grungy. Pricing would suggest that the customer is a priority to the wait staff and would receive highest quality service and attention. Missed it!

We found the restaurant on TripAdvisor as we were driving into town. It's a good thing that we made a reservation because it was full when we arrived except for our table.
Food was fresh. Flavors were excellent. Dishes were innovative and portions were a perfect size. Highly recommend and would definitely go back next time we are in town.

Drive over 120 miles and always eat here. The food was tasty and a Malbec at $5.50 a glass (big pour) was a bargain. We got reseated quickly because we initially sat near a rowdy and rude table of patrons. Oh well. I would have given the 5-stars but the scallops were gritty and tough. Speaking of grits -- McEwen's has wonderful grits and small biscuits! Definitely will return and I recommend visitors to Memphis give this small and friendly place a try!

Really enjoyed mcewens. We have eaten there before, about 10 years ago. Food quality is exceptional! My wife loved her grouper, and I had aosso bucolic of pork with outstanding southern sides, like greens, potatoes, and it was delicious!

The food and service were sensational. I couldn't stop raving about the food when I went to work the next day. Our service were so professional and friendly. Great to finally find a quality restaurant in Memphis!!!
