We pulled in just for an after dinner drink and it was a hopping place. The food coming out looked fabulous!

We enjoyed our experience here but had mixed reviews about our food. The goat cheese salad, scallops and sweet crab tostadas were good but just average. Service was fair, but location and atmosphere were both very good. But the trout, lamb, bar selections and banana cream pie were all excellent.

We enjoyed this restaurant. The purple hull pea hummus and shrimp and grits appetizers were terrific. I had the catfish with mac & cheese and collard greens for my entree. Although I was pretty full from the appetizers, the entree was also very good. Service was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was lively and casual. I would dine here again... More

After days of barbeque, it was a treat to have dinner at McEwens. We were greeted warmly when we entered and taken to our table, we chose from 6 different small plates and left FULL. The 6 plates and 4 glasses of wine all for less then $80.00. A great value and really fresh food. Favorites were the butternut squash... More

We stayed at the Residence Inn next door to McEwens, so between the Trip Adviser reviews and the convenient location, it was an easy dinner choice. This is a comfortable neighbor hood restaurant with extraordinary food. The purple pea humans and flat iron steak/tater tots are two of the best starters that we have had..ever. The Oso Bucco was amazing... More

Just returned from McEwens and have to say the food was outstanding. My partner has the salmon starter with the lobster risotto to follow, and I started with the brased cabbage salad and then the grouper with pasta and green beans. We were delighted with the complexity of taste. The staff were attentive despite the restaurant clearly very busy. All... More

We had a reservation at 6:15 on a Friday night. We were seated promptly. Service was friendly and consistent throughout our meal. We had two small plate items as appetizers (lobster saffron risotto and crab tostada). Both were quite good, but the crab tostada was exceptional. Our entrees (duck and lamb) were cooked well, seasoned well, and served hot. The... More

Pro's: great friendly service; lots of enticing items on the menu; food was outstanding! Con's: a bit pricey; rather simplistic looking venue without much style; Overall: would return again and the quality of food was definitely worth the price we paid

I enjoyed the one of the appetizer specials and the sweet potato crusted catfish. Our entire party of 4 all enjoyed their meals as well. Solid service and a nice place to entertain guests or just to have a good time in a relaxed, fine dining atmosphere without being stuffy. The location is convenient to popular areas of Memphis.

The restaurant has a great lively atmosphere. The staff was efficient and well trained. Every person at my table raved about what they ordered. The bar menu had plenty of unusual and creative cocktails too.
