Awesome in Oxford- this was a send off dinner for my son to attend Ole Miss. We were pleasantly surprised by the overall experience of this restaurant. The food, service, and ambiance all exceeded our expectations. The duck gumbo was a definite hit appetizer. My wife raved about the sea bass and i enjoyed beef special with blue cheese crumbles.

We ate there on a Tuesday night. We were in town to drop off our freshman at Ole Miss. The menu is varied and the price point is very reasonable. The atmosphere is great. We had the tartare duo for our appetizer and the beef tenderloin filet for our entrees. The wine list is very good and provides many options. It is not a John Currance establishment, but it is a very nice option while in Oxford. We will return.

The bar area next to the seating area was extremely noisy. We had to wait 25 minutes to get our own beverages. Our waiter was more interested in selling a bottle of wine to the next table than waiting on us. The food was excellent--shrimp and grits and beef tenderloin. However, there was not enough lighting to see the food.

We had a group of 8 adults plus 4 toddlers/infants and McEwens was totally accommodating. We had a room in the back so that the adults wouldn't have to fret about our youngsters disrupting other customers- plus the space was roomy for the young children to stir about while the adults truly enjoyed cocktails and delicious brunch offerings. The wait staff were ON THE BALL. It was a perfect birthday celebration brunch - thanks to the McEwen staff and their superb food and drink!

My husband and I first enjoyed lunch there for my birthday. Since that, we have been to Sunday brunch several times. Most recently, we celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary at McEwen's Oxford, MS. Every time was wonderful! Great decor, service and food! Plan to eat there again very soon! Go... If you haven't been.

We were at McEwen's for my husband's birthday dinner. It was a great meal and service. The food was excellent. I highly recommend the wild mushroom warm salad. Everyone loved their choices! McEwens's has a great ambience and works well for couples as well as groups. We will be back the next time we are in Oxford.

Food was fantastic. We were seated in the front window and it was FABULOUS except for the fact that it was very warm. Of course it was 95 degrees outside too! Any other time that would have been perfect!! Wait staff is great!

I had one of the best meals that I have had in recent times on Friday night July 22. From the excellent cosmo to start the night, to delicately fried oysters as my app, to an outstanding warm mushroom salad, to the delicious special redfish dish, it was a most memorable meal. And let us not forget the indescribably delicious dessert, a coconut creme pie. The service was very attentive. The only downside was that the a/c was having a bit of a problem that night, but they had fans blowing to try to help.

One of the things that I love in a restaurant - besides great food, great service, a diverse wine list - is to be seated exactly at the time of the reservation. We checked in at the desk on time - and the host said, "Welcome, please follow me." That starts my dining experience off well - and all the other features were equally outstanding. It was a most pleasant experience.
Our only concerns on past visits was the ...
Our only concerns on past visits was the lack of "low end" wine choices. The wine-by-the-glass menu has been expanded and several lower cost bottles have been added to the list. Now, there are selections for everyone.
Great meal in a very competitive restaurant environment.

I had been to McEwans twice before this and found it very good. This time we had a very poor experience, including food which was heavily salted, and service which was at best adequate. I am not sure what changed in the past year, but it has certainly gone downhill.

McEwen's has been one of my favorite places over the past four years that I have attended Ole Miss. As I graduated this past weekend, they were very helpful with being seated at my favorite table at the window to watch all the people pass by. They have so many great items that it would take me forever to list my favorites, but my absolute favorite is the goat cheese salad. It's something so unique that is definitely not found many places. If you are even considering it, I would absolutely go with McEwens over any other restaurant in Oxford.
Mother's Day Brunch
McEwen's was perfect to celebrate Mother's Day. Even with a packed restaurant, the service was attentive and the timing for appetizers, drinks, entree was spot on -- they were prepared. The hostess staff greeted us immediately and were very pleasant.

Everything i have had here, so fsr has always been terrific. Usually go to lunch because it is more affordable and the portions are perfect. (Enough to be comfortably) just dinner for the first time. Everything was great.
Tuna & Steak Tartar was the BOMB!
Where do I begin?? Food was outstanding! Love the atmosphere and the lighting. It was a bit noisy but the food was the best. Great place to celebrate our youngest's 19th birthday. Our waiter was ok - could have been more attentive. We will definitely be back.
