Ordered from a set menu. Had the fillet which tasted very good, as well as the sides. Service was friendly.

A week into a tour of the Southern states and we were desperate to have something different to fried chicken, chips and burgers. Found this place by chance and booked a table for four for the evening. We were't disapponted. We agreed we had eaten the best steaks ever - not too big with a good selection of vegetables on...

I have eaten here several times for lunch. Love the salads and flatbreads! This was the first time I have had dinner here. It was great. I had a filet and it was cooked perfectly. I had sautéed spinach for my side and it was good also. I would definitely recommend for both lunch and dinner. Great atmosphere and service... More

We had dinner at this restaurant after consulting trip advisor along with suggestions for the locals. What a wonderful meal. My wife had a filet with mash potatoes while I enjoyed the grilled salmon. The starter salads were also excellent. This restaurant was a short walk from our hotel so we could burn off some calories while we were at... More

First off, I need the brag on Donovan our waiter. So friendly and knew the menu very well. Good service is so important and they never fail to please. The food was very good. I had the vegetable plate which I highly recommend. My friends had the Mahi Mahi which I tried and it was wonderful. One friend had the... More

Cool atmosphere in a former theater. Lots of space, so you don't feel as if you have to be quiet (especially with young children). It's a fun place! Flatbreads were delicious! Desserts were delicious! Great staff!! Considerate and sociable to the boys!! Reasonably priced!

This busy central restaurant offered a wide ranging menu along with a quirky setting (its an old cinema which stills projects b/w films onto the back wall) and reasonable service. Seated in one of there booths our waiter was efficient and dealt with a minor complaint reasonably well. The steaks were very good along with a couple of great starters.... More

We went to Majestic Grille to celebrate our 26th anniversary, and I'm so glad we did! We had 6:30 reservations. When we got there, it was a gorgeous evening, and there were tables outside, so we almost sat out there, but we decided to go inside, and that was a really good choice, because the inside is beautiful. There is... More

We walked into the Majestic Grill in downtown Memphis a bit late on a Sunday night but were seated in a quiet table in the front of the restaurant. A converted movie theatre, the Majestic is a large space which probably gets very busy on Fridays and Saturdays, but we had it pretty much to ourselves. The service was efficient... More

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
