We enjoyed our meals and service was great. They also acknowledged our Anniversary. They make a great Martini, too.

I travel with my job! And everything all the way around was great! John answered when I made my reservation, very pleasant on the phone. Service was excellent. This was my second visit. Salmon was fantastic. My new addiction is the banana cream pie. I didn't get there to late and didn't want to run anyone behind, they were so... More

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
