“Never a fan of Salmon until trying McEwens! Now I crave theirs.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

I had the opportunity to photograph several dishes for a local magazine and afterwards we tried them. We had the Crab Napolean, Salmon and Tuna. I wasn't going to try the Salmon because I have never like it before. But it sitting there beautifully paired with Capers, tomato spinach ragout and balsamic glaze, I couldn't not try it. It was the best thing I've ever eaten. The outside of the salmon has a seared crispness paired with the salty, sweet and acid of the other flavors. I now crave this dish and McEwen's is our go to "nice" restaurant. A lot of the vegetables and herbs are grown locally and you won't meet a nicer staff anywhere.

I tried salmon several ways by chefs at the National Restaurant Show and was disappointed by each bite I took, only to reaffirm that the best and only Salmon that I liked was here at McEwens.

“Gem of a restaurant”

This restaurant just steps off the square is worth the drive to Oxford if you don't live there. Talented chef has a variety of dishes; something for everyone. Love the atmosphere. I have never had a bad meal here.

“Great Sunday Brunch Find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

For some reason, there aren't many choices for Sunday brunch in Oxford, MS. McEwen's proved to be a great find. The sausage casserole is really good. They have a pretty cool Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar. If you want to be near the square on a Sunday morning, this is a great choice
