Wonderful little Gastropub in Downtown Memphis. Had the Sweet Potato Catfish with Collard greens. Both cooked absolutely perfectly, seasoned just right, and fresh. Was talked into the Banana Cream Pie by server and was amazed. Wonderful and homemade! Top notch bourbon selection as well. A must visit when in Memphis!

Food was wonderful. Redfish with remoulade sauce was excellent. Beef tenderloin was so tender you could have cut it with a fork. We sat in the bar since we didn't have a reservation. It was fine. Dessert was SCRUMPTIOUS - banana cream pie. YUM.

At first I thought we wet just eating in a bar (because we were eating IN the bar), but the moment I saw the menu, all notions had been blown. I really loved the food here - The selection made it difficult (as I liked a lot of their offerings) . . . but otherwise - outstanding food. The service... More

After walking up and down Beale St., we realized we wouldn't find anything but bar food there and looked around the area for something better. We found McEwen's and ended up having an extremely good meal. Service was excellent, the room was nice and the bar comfortable, with and excellent selection of interesting spirits. My wife had a goat cheese... More

Had a business dinner and reserved the downstairs wine room for our meal. Excellent food and great wine. Wonderful place for a group and the downstairs room was a perfect place to enjoy the evening. Love the fact they have a tremendous selection of small plates which were savory and spectacular. The Apothic Red blend was a fabulous wine.

Date night in the bar side of this delightful establishment. Always friendly engaging staff that are attentive but not overly so. The food came out with perfect timing and the flavours were fresh, presentation thoughtful. We look forward to our next visit, there were so many tasty choices.

have to go with the team. Excellent menu and a light tapas style menu as well, if you please. Was expect at fern bar kind of evening. But the food was excellent, the service to par, and the atmosphere was not expected. Had the salad wedge which was great, thought would recommend getting dressing on the side. Needed to have...
