No question. Best food in Memphis. Without doubt. Four people, one fish, two meat, one vegetarian meal, all agreed. Fabulous meal.

Great food and close proximity to hotel. I try to eat here at least once during my stay when I am in town for work.

Shoutout to @McEwens in Memphis. May be the best meal I had over a long weekend in Memphis. The staff were phenomenal, the collard greens unreal, and the old-fashioned with W.L. Weller was the best I've ever had. I highly recommend for anyone in Memphis.

Everything we ordered here was delicious from apps to desserts! Highly recommend this place when in town. We stayed at the Peabody hotel which was a short 4 min walk.

We joined another couple for birthday celebrations at McEwen's last night. Perfect service and excellent food. The filet with grilled asparagus and potatoes was perfection. And the coconut cake is not to be missed. Highly recommend.

The dinner and service was nearly perfect. Even though they have a good wine list, we started off with a neat Stoli Martini and The Seelbach cocktail, both of which were excellent. We split the warm mushroom salad which had a little too much Walnut...More
