It's really out of my price
It's really out of my price range, but...having said that, if you want a place where you can actually say that the food, the service, and the overall experience can be worth the money, this is it. (And as an ex-cook, the food really is top notch; you'd have to pay much, much more to get better, and even then, it would be a contest.)

Upscale Atmosphere & Fantastic Food
Oxford has many, many wonderful restaurants, but this one is FANTASTIC! If you are looking for a romantic date night, an elegant setting for delicious dinner and conversation that you can actually hear, this is the perfect place to go!
And the food!! Our table had the scallops, crabcakes, beef tenderloin, and Chilean sea bass and every bite was wonderful!

This is not the most fancy
This is not the most fancy or well known resturant in Oxford. It is however, a very giood eating establishment. It provides very good food for a moderate price. If you are buying dinner for several college kids, this is a better option than Oxford's more pricy establishments

Favorite: book a reservation
This was our second visit to McEwens and it is quickly becoming our favorite restaurant in Oxford. Our waitress Meg was wonderful. We had the oyster app, mushroom salad, steak, lamp chops, sea bass and scallops. Everything was perfectly cooked. The vanilla cheesecake was the best I've had and our family has NY roots. I would highly recommend McEwens. They were extremely accommodating with all our reservation juggling as well. Thank you

Great Food, Too Loud
Everything was great, my only complaint is that the restaurant was far too loud -- My girlfriend and I struggled to hear each other across the table at times

Also, thanks for not blasting
Also, thanks for not blasting the AC like many Oxford businesses.

Could have been in NYC
McEwens is a beautiful restaurant in downtown Oxford that has the decorative and culinary feel of New York. The lighting is perfect and the booths are both chic and comfortable. Our server was cute and charming and the food was fantastic. A must-have on the menu is the crab mac and cheese. Fabulous!!! We were all fighting over it. We will make a point of eating at McEwens each time we visit our son in Oxford.

One of my Favorites!
McEwen's has been and continues to be one of my first choices when dining with a group. I have most often had a pleasant dining experience and the food is not the run-of-the-mill and offers a unique variety.

Favorite New Oxford Restaurant
The menu is varied, interesting and there is definitely something on the menu that will please everyone at your table. This is not a short and tee shirt restaurant, but, you can dress stylish casual or be dressed up and feel comfortable here. The tables are spaced appropriately for quiet conversation with your dining companion. I highly recommend this restaurant because it offers its' guests a wonderful dining experience.

No Doubt about it...It's excellent
There could not be a better place to eat; it is impossible. Everything we have eaten at McEwens has been the best it could be. Everything on the menu is great... We've about tried them all, at this point. If you're hungry for a steak, their filet can't be beaten. Their salmon is the best anywhere, according to my husband. Their jumbo crab is a full-on complete meal in itself. If you don't know if you like 'Goat Cheese Salad' or not, you'll most likely find that you do at McEwens. Every staff person and/or waiter is friendly and takes care of you (Thanks, Avery, for tonight). Just go there and you'll see what I mean.

Made reservations ahead of time due to college move in and lots of parents in town. We ate early on Friday night ( 8-22-13) & were very tired after moving in granddaughter at Ole Miss, along with her patents. The restaurant was very clean, modern decor, and quiet. We could actually carry on conversation, unlike the night before in another well known Oxford restaurant- where the noise level was so loud- we couldn't hear each other. Our waiter was very professional and the food was very good. Prices were about the same as other fine dining restaurants in Oxford. We enjoyed our meal, along with drinks and wine and desert!

I could not ask for my dinner to have been any better but the entrée serving was about half of what I thought it should have been. For a $30 entrée I expect to leave full.

Dinner for four
Womderful experience. The staff was on point and the food was excellent. New favorite for us four
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything we ordered was really good...red snapper and salmon were superb. The fried oyster salad is one of my favorites. The oysters were the perfect size, but just a bit over cooked. Our waiter was a delightful young man. Fun experience!

We ate dinner at McEwens on a rare, quiet night in Oxford. The restaurant is lovely, done in natural woods and sensuous fabrics. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable, and offered nice suggestions about the menu. Definitely a top restaurant in Oxford.

My wife and I enjoyed our meal at McEwen's. The wait staff were friendly and professional, and the food was very good. I had the filet and it was excellent. My wife had salmon and said it was also delicious.

When my parents came into town for their 31st Anniversary I wanted to take them somewhere special. Having been to McEwens the previous April for my sister and I's birthday I knew they had incredible food and great service. They lived up to my expectations the second time as well.

Oxford Square Fine Dining
Our first time dining at McEwen's was very special. The restaurant is beautiful and the menu and wine list were incredible. Our table had Sea Bass, beef tenderloin topped with lump crabmeat and salmon. All three dishes were outstanding. The price point is high $20's to low $30's but well worth it. Ambiance was very nice and the noise level was low. We will be back!

Best In Oxford
Absolutely a wonderful restaurant with friendly outstanding service. Burton,Pastry Chef/ server, was outstanding. Dessert special sampler was terrific.
Our party of four was served in 1:15 minutes never feeling rushed.
A great experience!

We had a party of 5 for lunch. The waiter was very knowledgable and attentive. One in our party had a issue with the meat being more rare than preferred. The waiter was very quick to accomodate her by having the chef cook the meat more to her taste. The food was absolutely wonderful! We will be dining there again and highly recommend it to anyone. Don't be in a hurry, this is not fast food and well worth the wait!

McEwens has quickly become one of Oxford's best restaurants. It is located right off the square. The food is always delicious and the service is always good. The atmosphere is very upscale. We eat here over and over and are never disappointed.
