My boyfriend and I were visiting Memphis for one (very cold) evening, and made a reservation here. We ordered a salad and fried oysters to start and both had fish entrees (miso sea bass and sweet potato crusted cod) - all of which was great. The warm biscuits (in lieu of bread) are awesome too, and were refilled when we quickly polished off the first basket. The staff was very nice and accomodated our request to move away from the door given the chilly weather and also quickly corrected a small error on our tab and thanked us for pointing it out. The owner came over to greet us when we arrived and checked on us during the meal.
Really deserves 4.5 stars.

I read about McEwan's on the Fodor's site. I checked out the menu and called for a reservation. The man who answered was warm and kind and told me he would be able to find us a table even though it was Friday night. When I arrived the bartender said hello and immediately came from behind the bar to seat us. We were greeted and told the specials immediately. The ambience was warm and refined without being uppity.
Our appetizer of fried oysters with a mustard plum sauce came out almost instantly. The breading was light and well seasoned and the sauce was amazing. We shared the blue snapper special and the scallops and cheese grits.
The fish was so yummy with peruvian mashed potatoes and the best green beans I've ever had in a restaurant.
The scallops were perfectly cooked and the grits, while rich, did not overpower the delicate scallop flavor. The piccata sauce on which the scallops were placed was amazing with the other flavors.
I had the banana pudding for dessert. I don't even have words for how good that was.
The owner asked us how everything was and from his questions I could tell that his heart was really in it. He seems to really value the dining experience of his guests.
I can't wait to go back to Memphis just to go back to this friendly place with such amazing dishes. I would highly recommend McEwan's on Monroe.

On a recent visit to Memphis I had occassion to dine at McEwen's. Would very much recommend it. Ambience was excellent, and if you are staying downtown very convenient. Food was terrific, with a very creative menu. And a wine list that rivals many places in New York. Can't miss.

Between the wood and granite bar, the fusion food, and Mac the owner, this restaurant offers everything wonderful. Be sure to try the soup, the filet, and the coconut cake, and don't forget to check out the artwork for sale.

I traveled to Memphis for a long weekend and was taken to McEwens. I was immediately drawn to the warm atmosphere. Exposed brick, high ceilings and warm lighting. There is a separate bar and restaurant section so you can pop in for a drink or full meal. The setting is slightly formal and would be a great place for a nice dinner date. The food was good and I understand the menu changes regularly. The owner stops by the tables just to make sure everything is perfect. And it was.

Pros: Atmosphere, Service, Wine Selection

Cons: Can be Crowded

While the wine was divine, the house special seafood pasta was much closer to something you might find on a Grocer's shelf in a jar! In addition, the meal took over an hour to get on the table making us late for the threatre.

Thank goodness for their extensive wine list.

McEwen's has been a stalwart in drink, food, & ambiance during frequent visits from New York & CA for many years. Whether dining alone, in small groups, or with large parties -- at lunch, dinner, and for late evening refreshments -- the service and cuisine are unmatched elsewhere in Memphis and are on a par with world class restaurants in my traveling experience. Combine these ingredients with the clientele representing people you know and would like to know . . . the warmth and openness of staff and customers . . . and the eclectic, intimate, breezy environment, it quickly will become your home away from home, as well!

Traveled all over the world and still like to come home to McEwen's. Casual, comfortable, bistro-like setting is home to excellent food, well-prepared and presented, and a superior, fairly priced wine cellar. Owners and staff are friendly and efficient. Regulars receive special treatment, and visitors are treated like regulars!

McEwens is more than just a casual dining spot in the center of downtown. It's great food matched with quality wine or beer. A staff that professional in the front of the house as well as in the kitchen. Worth a vist for you people who don't go downtown.
