    We had a nice meal. We arrived 30 minutes early and were seated at that time. Attractive set up. We were upstairs and could see all the action and still be able to enjoy our conversation. The food was tasty but not memorable. The service was wonderful. I would go back if visiting Memphis again.

    Set up in what looks like an old theatre with along bar down one side the tables inalcoves on two levels down the other side. There is also an upstairs area with a balcony. The lighting was calm and sophisticated. Service was efficient, we only waited a few minutes for our meal which was excellent. We much enjoyed the experience.

    Great staff, amazing service, loved the feel of the building, easy parking with good location and the food was spot on and priced well. Great location downtown! My only negitive thing I could say was I asked prior to be seated in a quiet place in the restaurant since we were celebrating our anniversary and was seated near the bar. But other than that we loved it and will be back!

    My wife and I gladly drive the 30 minute drive, once or twice a month, downtown from Germantown to eat at The Majestic Grille. There are plenty of great restaurants between Germantown and Downtown Memphis...just hard to beet the combination of ambiance, consistency of food/service & price.

    The Majestic is an outstanding place to dine with your friend or friends. I have been several times and consistency is at it's upmost. The noise level is at moderate and the jazz music is pleasing. We have always had good friendly service and an energetic atmosphere. Would not go anywhere else,though we have tried many, for my downtown brunch experience.

    We learned, for all the grand descriptions, that you have to be seated upstairs to see anything, otherwise you get a view of the football games on big screen in the bar. The food was good -- nothing stood out about it to me -- I had a cheeseburger because there wasn't anything on the menu that screamed "I'm something you've never tried before" - and I asked for bacon on it - so lost out on the cheese (I guess it's either/or there).

    The Majestic Grille is my kind of place. Consistently, very good food, nicely presented. Staff is friendly and inspired to deliver a good experience. I love the fact that there's a vibe, but not too much noise. You can have a nice lunch, talk some business and enjoy the time . . . have some fun.

    Once again, we went to the Majestic before an Orpheum show. The food, ambiance and service were all great. From the Smoked Salmon appetizer to the Mahi Mahi and the Plum Tomato Flatbread to the drinks to the service, it was all good - as we've come to expect. What a gem the Majestic Grille is!

    This is a rather upscale restaurant for Memphis. Great atmosphere. Located block away from the Orpheum at the beginning of the walking mall so seems relatively safe. One of the best steaks I've ever had. The pre-theatre menu a very good but. Fast and efficient service. Emily was our waitress for the evening and she was excellent. Will definitely eat there again.

    This was our first time using open table & the Magestic Grille was a fabulous. The service was spot on, the food was delicious & the old theater atmosphere was fun. My husband loved the sugared carrots & his pork tenderloin was perfectly cooked. My mushroom pesto tortellini was wonderful...so much so that my 7 year old wanted to share too. Great Memphis experience close to the Peabody & close to Beale Street. Thank you to the other reviewers who helped us make a great choice.

    I made a reservation for two prior to us attending Phantom Of The Opera. The table we were shown to was so small and wedged up against a wall that we decided to sit outside. Unfortunately, it was very windy that night, and we had to hang on to our napkins, silverware and glasses to keep them from blowing off the table. We sat down at 6pm and immeditately ordered. We did not get our food until 6:50pm. The waitress appeared to be very stressed and unorganized. Very disappointing experience. Majestic Grille has always been my go to place when I am going to the Orpheum. Not sure I will come back after this last experience.

    Looked for a dinner spot away from Beale Street, this was a great find! Great service and atmosphere in a converted historic theater. Had Cornmeal Crusted Calamari for an appetizer, very tasty breading, tender and absolutely no grease, the basil aioli perfectly complemented the calamari. The Chop House Salad was simple, the romaine was fresh, and crisp, must have been harvested the same day, and the 1000 island dressing was light, more like a vinaigrette, and brought everything together in the most unique taste in a salad. The BBQ ribs were served with just a little sauce, but the rub was so good and the meat so tender (it did literally fall off the bone), that additional sauce would have masked the delicious flavor of the ribs. A repeater!

    We had a great waiter who was training someone. She still had quite a bit to learn. Did not bring salads for us together and did not realize that there was a seperate wine list. We were seated at a table for two but it was a long table and did not feel it was very intimate. Food from Theater menu was ok. Food from regular menu was better.

    The salmon appetizer was amazing!!! The ribeye my husband had was okay (per him), and the chicken carbonara, although the cream was good, the meal itself lacked the wow factor. Also, I tried their renowned honeysuckle cocktail. It was more of a lemon cocktail.

    I booked at the Majestic precisely because it is close to the Orpheum Theater and because the varied menu had offerings for a wide range of tastes and choices for children as well. It seemed the perfect choice. Prior to my reservation date I was contacted by the restaurant to confirm my reservation which I thought was a nice touch, and when we arrived we were seated immediately. Our waiter brought our drinks immediately & while it took a long time to get our order placed, our food was very good once delivered. I would go back for the food & hope to have better experience with the wait staff.

    We went to the majestic grill for our anniversary. The sausage and cheese platter was pretty good, although I could have done without the handful of dried cranberries and the stale crackers. The mushroom tortelli was bland and greasy. The fillet was well cooked. The dessert shots were nice, just the right size for finishing off a small meal.

    It was nice to check out a new experience in the city. My husband and I did enjoy our time, but were not overly impressed by the food. Another thing that stood out to us were the plastic cups used for drinking. You can find the same type of pastil cups in college cafeterias. Not sure if we would recommend it for a special occasion, more of a simple, different place to eat.

    Our waiter was incredibly kind and attentive, going out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our experience, including my four year old. The food was delicious, though my only hiccup was that the biscuits and gravy came out lukewarm. Our waiter immediately took them back to the kitchen and a few minutes later I was given a fresh serving. The mimosa was the largest I've ever had at a restaurant brunch, yet still retained its quality. I am definitely returning to Majestic and will be recommending it to friends.

    Thank you Majestic Grille for another fabulous dinner. The wine was delicious, the service was superb and our meal was delicious. With our reservations we were seated almost immediately and made comfortable with pre-dinner wine. We were allowed to take our time with menu selections and never made to feel rushed through our meal. It was the perfect setting for a quiet dinner with friends and family. Always a favorite, we were not disappointed and will look forward to our next experience at The Majestic!
