While dining at The Majestic Grille you might expect to see Myrna Loy & William Powell sitting at the bar, zinging witty one-liners at each other over ice-cold martinis. Originally built in 1913 as the Majestic No. 1, a silent picture house that entertained Memphians for three decades, the restaurant gives diners a glimpse of the heady Hollywood days of ol'. From the beautifully restored Beaux Arts décor to expertly prepared classic cocktails to warm, gracious service to Chef/Owner Patrick Reilly's award wining, yet remarkably comfortable food, you find yourself feeling transported to another time. Add to that the largest private movie screen in the city showing silent films & classic movies and you're center stage in an atmosphere that reclaims the cinematic glory of the dawn of the silver screen. Named Best Restaurant, Best Brunch and Best Chef, The Majestic Grille has won accolades in regional and national press. As a community gathering spot for the Arts, The Majestic Grille offers up a dining experience that delights all the senses! Whether sipping a mimosa at our 'Ultimate' Sunday Brunch, hosting a business dinner in a private room, or watching the trolley roll by on our beautiful patio, we invite you to join us for a special dining experience in our historic downtown location. We look forward to seeing you soon, Deni & Patrick Reilly

Visited here for dinner on recommendation of our accommodation ( Talbot Heirs Guesthouse ) which was just around the corner . It was a cold Monday night in the middle of a tourist downturn due to winter storms up north. But it was still busy - in fact the only place in the street with any... read more

We were lucky to sneak in on a Sat night when a reservation cancelled. Cool location. My filet came out overcooked but the staff was great about quickly getting me a new one. The correct one was very tasty ($32 with one side... a bit steep but was tasty). They gave us a free dessert sampler as a make good... More

Had a business lunch here and everyone loved it. The waiter recommended the grill cheese and he was spot on. Very good special for them. The waiter was good but kept bringing out new drinks, even though we weren't even half done with the ones in front of us. Bread also arrived right before meals. Not really time to enjoy... More

Majestic Grill serves great food in a wonderful atmosphere. We particularly liked having booth. The pasta I had was excellent. The Majestic is just a couple of blocks from Beale Street. Would definitely eat here again.

This place used to be a cinema and retains the shape of the original building. We arrived without a reservation and had a wonderful meal. The waiter couldn't have been more helpful and the meals were not the usual enormous American-sized ones which you cannot finish. We did manage to finish this and enjoyed every last mouthful of our pasta... More

This a very attractive space in downtown Memphis. It's energetic without being overpowering. The food is American with a great selection of salads, flatbreads sandwiches and burgers. We enjoyed our lunch and plan to return soon for dinner.
