We wanted a quieter, finer dining experience one night and chose this based on reviews. There are three (I think) dining spaces. It feels like an old house - comfortable and homey. We had sweet potato crusted catfish and flank steak with mashed potato pancake with Caesar salads. All was excellent - meat done perfectly, light Caesar dressing. Peach cobbler with homemade ice cream for dessert was very good. The wine list is very extensive but very expensive. We opted for a craft cocktail followed by a glass of wine with dinner. Service was friendly and appropriately timed. Pricing was as we would expect for that kind of restaurant.

Everything we ordered here was delicious from apps to desserts! Highly recommend this place when in town. We stayed at the Peabody hotel which was a short 4 min walk.

Have been frequenting Memphis for business for the last 10 years and never miss eating here when in town. The menu is consistent, but that’s because everything is phenomenal. However, the specials always make my ordering decisions difficult. Love the whole staff here and hope they keep going for years to come...

Excellent small plates with a good wine list. Service was fabulous - great suggestions and fabulous sense of humor which added to a great experience. Don’t miss the shrimp and grits!

We joined another couple for birthday celebrations at McEwen's last night. Perfect service and excellent food. The filet with grilled asparagus and potatoes was perfection. And the coconut cake is not to be missed. Highly recommend.
