You cannot find better fish or specials on the SQUARE! AND TRY SPECIALTY COCKTAILS.... like the famous BLIND JIM!! (Ask for the story and person behind that name!). There is not one error on that menu! I have never (at least twice a month visits) had one bad meal or one bad experience. Excellent staff top to bottom and superb... More

The fried oyster appetizer is delicious. The plum sauce and mignonette are perfect compliments. The duck confit enchiladas and steak and egg starters shouldn't be missed. The duck and andouille is excellent. You can have a great meal at McEwen's and only have appetizers. But, the sea bass and filet are too good not to have. The banana cream pie... More

Flawless dining experience. Table was ready when we arrived. Service was prompt and food delicious. Enjoyed the Oyster appetizer and an off-the-menu Redfish entree along with the Duck Gumbo. The person who recommends McEwen's to you has done you a special favor.

Loved trying McEwen's for the first time and was instantly captivated by the lovely decor and incredible food and wine selection. We loved everything about our meal and the portions were more than we could eat!

Have been many many times to this restaurant. Went on a Friday night on a game day weekend. Sat in bar table around 530. Drinks were good. Oyster appetizer good as usual. Salads good as usual. Tried the special pasta which was described as angel hair but came out as fettuccine. It was literally the worst entree I've ever tried... More

We go here on occasion and went last night with friends. This place never ceases to amaze me and seems to get better every time. I had the scallops, my fellow diners had a filet, Chilean sea bass and Salmon and everyone said it was some of the best food they had ever had. Way better food and value then... More

Best high end restuarant in Oxford. The service combined with the excellent menu will compete with any restuarant anywhere.

They just incorporated a NY sirloin to their offerings and it is tops! Morton's, Del Frisco ... take note ! The service is fantastic; it's nice to see college students so dedicated to their patrons. We have been here before and will return on our next visit to Oxford. Highly recommended.
