McEwens - Oxford Ratings and Reviews
This was one fantastic experience! Everything was just perfect. About the best 5 star I could ever rate the appitizers were great. Especially the oysters. And the salad was local home grown tomatoes caprise. I had the fish special ... two others had the steaks. And the catfish entree was unbeatable. Drinks were good too. Since this was a birthday celebration. The deserts were on the house. Very nice touch! This is a no brainer for fine dining in Oxford
Menu has changed some. Unfortunately lamb dish no longer offered. Had been my favorite and one of the reason I chose restaurant to entertain 6 friends . Too bad really liked it.
We had six in our party. I would say 3 of the six meals looked good and enjoyed very much so. Two of them were the filets. One was the sea bass. The duck gumbo was good. The toast and steak appetizer was not good. It had been changed since last time there with friends. Meat tough, some I couldn't swallow. Wedge salad was just ok. The other two meals the people who had them, one a trout special (looked like salmon), the other salmon. People who had them as entrees said they were good, but I noticed they did not eat them all, one just kinda pushed the food around. The appetizers, buttermilk fried oysters and ahi tuna, steak tartare, were not great.......ok at best. Total meal and drinks came to $374 which included tip. I will try somewhere else next time. Young man who was our waiter was very good and his service was excellent. Hostess, etc. were fine.
The food selections were fantastic. We all enjoyed every bite from the salad to the entrée and one of the most luscious desserts we had ever tasted. We will definitely keep McEwens in mind for future special occasions when we want entrée options that are way above the average local offerings.
Has become my favorite restaurant in Oxford. Great selection of food and everything so delicious. I have eaten weekly lunch, Sunday Brunch, and evening. On this occasion, I had the special - Red Snapper. Could not have been better. Our out-of-town friend had Duck and enjoyed it also. Great atmosphere. Good ambiance for conversation.
We celebrated our son's graduation from Ole Miss and really enjoyed our meal. The Staff was accommodating and hospitable as we were running late for our reservation due to a fender bender. They took care of us and we still made it to the baseball game. Shrimp & grits, steak, catfish all amazing dishes.
I was there for a business dinner and the food was great. Our waitress was courteous and caring. However, I did not appreciate that despite the early reservation we were seated right in front of the main entrance. We really did not get to enjoy any of the good, dark ambience that others further inside enjoyed. It was too bright and busy. Since I was hosting dinner for a job candidate for the university, I wanted a quieter, more ambient environment and asked if we could get another table but were told that all was booked and we would have to be done within an hour. Also, the price is a bit high but this is common for the area.
What a great find in Oxford. Although a bit pricey, it was worth every penny. Our waitress was great, the ambiance was great, Love the decor,the food was super great. It was so nice to sit in a restaurant and not strain to hear our conversation. My husband and I both ordered the Sea Bass and it was done to perfection! Really delicious! Our son and his date had the Shrimp & Grits. They both agreed it was the best they have had in Oxford. Packed w/ flavor (a bit spicy).
Don't miss out on this wonderful restaurant. Our son had 3 more years and Ole Miss......We will be returning to McEwens!
Starting with prompt seating for our reservation, on a Friday night, and being greeted by our friendly and attentive server, that immediately served the bottle of wine we had pre ordered! Excellent service and attention through out the dinner by our waitress.
Chef is incredible artesian; as all of the starters and main courses were amazingly delectable and done with a flair. Highly recommended! Looking forward to our next visit to McEwens!!
