Enjoyed a quiet meal on the Square while the students were still out of town! Locals will know what I'm talking about. McEwen's has a really nice atmosphere, very cozy. We ate a light meal featuring a couple of their salads and some tapas plates. All were delicious, very well prepared and fresh. Service was very attentive. Overall a wonderful... More

We were in Oxford early January to visit our daughter. Wonderful meal with great service.Try the Mesa Catfish! This is our favorite place in Oxford now. We can't wait to visit again.

Consistently good seasonal southern cuisine! Best restaurant duck gumbo in Oxford, no question about it. Pan seared Chilean sea bass was delicious! Excellent wines and cocktails. Great service!

Our last night in Oxford before I cooked for New Year's eve and left the next day, was spent at McEwen's. If it is your last supper in Oxford for awhile go here. I had the Buttermilk Oysters to start and Duck Gumbo. They were outstanding and I let the dark roux of the gumbo guide me the next morning... More

Three of us dined at McEwen's in November while in Oxford for the Ole Miss-Georgia Southern football game. The staff was great, our waitress was top notch. However, the food was not what we were hoping for. It was ok but the price was entirely too high for the quality.

Nice meal but not great. My wife had a salad that had squash and other vegetables that were undercooked (maybe on purpose). I ordered some type of country fried steak over mashed potatoes that was okay but not great. For the price we were a little disappointed. Not a lot for us to say except average in a town with...

I eat at the McEwens in Downtown Memphis at least once a month and i had heard about this in Oxford. I wanted to give it a try and i like what i experienced. The menus are a little different but similar. This location favors the MS delta a little more with more seafood selections. It is located on the... More

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
