This is touted to be in the group of the "better and pricier" restaurants in Oxford. It is both of those and provides the town with some variety, though each play on a local style of Southern Gourmet cooking. Figure $40-$50 a plate with drinks. If you are not too hungry try a couple of appetizers.We had the oysters, a... More

This is my second review for this restaurant. The staff has gotten better, food is great, but is about time they make a few changes to their menu, particularly their appetizers section, which needs more variety and selections. We were a party of eight people and we all had a hard time liking/picking anything from the appetizers section. Great atmosphere!

We walked into this place after the Ole Miss v. Auburn game. Every other place in town turned us away, but the staff here said they could work us in. We had about an hour wait and the place was packed! Note to self: next time make reservations! That said, we waiting our time and were seated. Good cocktails and... More

They were out of salmon. We had filets and med well came out med rare. They ran out of bread. Out of 6 people 4 had their... More

This is a great football weekend choice. The menu offers a great variety and all of my guests were pleased. I typically seek out fresh fish and i was not disappointed. Not as good as a gulf coast seafood restaurant, but good for an "inland" establishment. Even with a large crowd the service was spot on. The wine list is... More

My family and I were in Oxford for an Ole Miss game. City Grocery was booked solid and its other restaurants had a long waits. At the advice of a friend we booked through Open Table McEwens as our back up. After making the rounds we decide eat there. Beautiful restaurant with nice decor, mix of old and new. We... More

My husband had McEwen's shrimp and grits for lunch on our last visit. It is his new lunch favorite in Oxford. I had the miso pecan glazed salmon with grilled asparagus which was perfectly prepared. The noise level was enough to provide a great pregame atmosphere, but at a level where we could carry on a conversation.

Was invited to lunch on the square and forgot it was a Friday before a home game. Parking was an issue (but when is it not on a Friday before a home game?) I arrived and expected a full house, but was pleasantly surprised that it was not over-crowded. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was comfortable. It was... More

The food was okay but not great. My wife ordered the same items as another guest with us but they did not get the same dish. I thought it was quite pricey for what we got. A salad and a sandwich for $33 (tax and tip included) seems pricey to me.
