McEwan's is one of my favorite restaurants in Memphis. I never have a bad experience there. The food is better, in my opinion, than more expensive restaurants in town, and it's usually pretty quiet and relaxed. I'm not into the bar scene and like to be able to hear the people I'm at dinner with. A great place to visit for both lunch and dinner! My personal menu favorites are the shrimp & grits and the habanero ribeye.

They seem to be a bit full of themselves and their cocktails. The atmosphere is nothing special, the food is presentable and it is a bit overpriced.

very good food consistently served.....
that's the path to success in the restaurant world....
this fine establishment has been around for years (over 15) and labled a premiere downtown eating spot.
I have never had a disappointing meal and several of their dishes are excellent...
solid performance, consistent and very well done....

Visited this nice traditional mid west restaurant with colleagues during a business trip. Good atmospher and a short menu with a good selection of seafood, vegetarian and steaks. I tried the saffron risotto as a starter and it was delicious. The New York strip as a main course was just as juicy as you wish - with a nice spice to it. An Elk Pinot Noire was a good match to the meat. The waiter was partly interested in our table, but the headwaiter was good. A good place for dinner with colleagues, friends and families!

We went to the restaurant without reservations and got a table without delay. There is an extensive menu. One member ordered something that was not what she expected it would be. Nothing was wrong with the food--just not to her taste. Upon notifying the waiter, she ordered something else, which was expedited in the kitchen. Fantastic service, food and atmosphere.
