The place was packed but server was friendly and helpful. Food was excellent as were the mimosas and Bloody Mary.

After the Memphis traditional ribs and chicken joints this was a welcome change. More of our taste with understated sophistication in a nice atmosphere. The steaks were flavorful and cooked perfectly. Highly recommend sautéed spinach and dessert glasses. We did lemon and tiramisu both did not disappoint. Service was excellent. Would recommend you go to break from the casual fare.

Had a great Sunday Brunch with my family on my birthday. We were seated near the bar first and I thought it was a little drafty and busy so I asked to move upstairs. We were graciously accommodated as they weren't yet that busy. Our server was remarkable. Everyone enjoyed their meals. And the $4 Bloody Mary special was so... More

When trying to find a suitable restaurant for a group of 28 people, I was happy that The Majestic Grille could accommodate us. They had one table for 20 and one table for eight. I sat at the table with 20 people and wondered if we were in for a LONG evening of waiting for our food orders. Not to... More

We stopped in without a reservation and chose to sit at the bar instead of wait on a table. The food was wonderful! Two people in our party had a burger and really enjoyed them. I had the grilled cheese bars on recommendations I saw in reviews, and it didn't disappoint. The service was ok and not great - the... More

Located in downtown Memphis in an old movie theater. Interesting and fun atmosphere. Food was average..not bad but could certainly improve. Service was the same. Artichoke flatbread was served cold and was unimpressive.

Everything is superb! Ambiance - beautiful lighting, great seating, old movies playing on big screen. (Historical building where silent movies were played in the 20's). Service - Byram is awesome! Love this guy. Food - delicious pork loin, perfect mashed potatoes with maple-glazed carrots topped with tobacco onion rings. Rack of ribs are done to perfection with delicious crispy parmesan...

Firstly, our waiter Joe was the nicest, most friendly waiter ever. On top of that, every single thing we ate was fabulous. I had a salad & salmon which was better than ever--and I eat those two things almost everywhere I go. Everyone had something different and each thing from appetizers to deserts was phenomenal!

My family dined with TMG three weeks ago and EVERYTHING was superb; the food, the service AND atmosphere were simply WONDERFUL! It was so good that we wanted to experience it again. So we decided to dine with you on tonight 12/17/16. What a letdown!! While enjoying our meal, a group of young adults was seated two tables down from... More

Description
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
