I had the New York Strip, which was perfect. It came with 2 sides, a potato and andouille sausage combination and asparagus. The creme brulee was good. Extensive wine list. Nice atmosphere.

Pleasant dining room and wait staff. Waitress attended to orders and got check promptly. Ordered 2 specials and one other, took about 20 minutes to get food. Beverages refilled regularly. Food good quality. No complaints

We had a wonderful dining experience at McEwens. Brian is a fantastic server and really knows his food and drinks. You can't beat the service and welcoming atmosphere. We ate dinner one night and returned for dessert the next night after a bad experience at the Capriccio Grill.

My husband and I were heading to see The Bodyguard musical at the nearby Orpheum Theater, and we decided to have dinner here because it was close to the venue and the menu looked great. It did not disappoint. There is a wide variety of food choices so it's great for large groups as well because there is something for... More

When I need a nice, comfortable, delicious and just interesting enough dinner spot in Memphis, McEwen's is almost always one of the top three on the list. More often than not I end up eating at the bar by myself or with just one friend and that is perfect. It is comfortable, the music is good and not too loud,... More

Took a chance going here on New Year's eve without a reservation. We had been here passing through back in October and wanted to come again. We got seated ( not the best table ) but we were grateful nonetheless. That night they had a 4 course prix fix menu. There was a nice variety, my duck, bisque and fish... More

We had a reservation here the other night. It was good. Pros: Lobster Risotto we had was good. The shrimp and grits was good but the appetizer portion would barely feed one. The atmosphere was relaxed and nice. Great liquor and wine selection. Cons: Cocktails were not that good. Too strong and lacked good flavor. Service was decent. Our waiter... More

After reading the reviews, our expectations of the restaurant were very high. The atmosphere was inviting (love the artwork), good lunch crowd, and the food came out piping hot. That was the good part. Service was just so-so.

I have been here several times and it keeps getting better and better. The atmosphere is wonderful and the service is very good and knowledgable. The bar menu is tremendous, if you are a bourbon drinker this is a cant miss. Every bourbon you can imagine is on the menu. I had the pan seared ribeye and it was done... More

We called with short notice on reservations, but Julie, said that yes they could get us in in 30 minutes if we did not mind sitting in the wine cellar. That was fine with us, was out of the way, quiet, great atmosphere. The food was very good, service was great. Yes I would go back and tell my friends... More
