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!!!

This is just a great place, have been going here for years and still excellent. Best items for me on current menu are lamb steak and osso bucco. But I've had many types of fish here as well, never disappointed. Its a nice older building, service typically prompt and excellent as well.

We went there with a group of 9 during a vacation stay. We had made reservations under two names but when we got to the restaurant they placed us at a large table in the bar area so we could all sit together. The server was friendly, knowledgeable and patient. The food was excellent. I had the SeaBass for the main course which was cooked to perfection with a delicious sear. It was served with a Risotto and spinach that individually were plain and maybe even under seasoned, but when mixed was wonderful. Everyone in our group loved there meals, I don't think there was a complaint from anyone. Even the 11 year old picky eater liked her meal and the home made biscuits.

Delicious food and great service. Ambience was relaxing. Nice wine list and an easy walk from the trolleystop . only criticism was the table was so tiny,it was a challenge to handle your place settings. Overall, though, a great dining experience!

I forgot take a picture of my meal. I had the Braised Pork Buco & it was delicious. It was a large piece of meat& the spicey greens were very very tasty. I will definitely be going back. All of my friends loved their meal. Service was great & server very attentive

The food was good, there were 3 of us and we shared the cheese plate and had three entrees for $97. It was a business dinner. I will return. I ordered the sweet potato crusted catfish that was okay. It was not cooked done enough for me, but I like my fish well done. The overall rating was very good. Service was great!

Food was excellent. I was taking some out of town guests out for a business dinner. The guests were into wine and they enjoyed the bottle of Itallian wine that we got.
Been coming to McKewens since 2002 - love it!
