Our server, Selena, was excellent! Very attentive and always smiling and friendly. The food was good but the duck did have more fat than normal.

The service was slow to began. Way too long for the drinks. Food was good, but way overpriced.

Came here for an early Valentine’s Day dinner. Started with the lobster roll appetizer, super tasty and they did not skimp on the amount of lobster at all. We both ordered the pork chop special which was different, but also very delicious. I would highly recommend the brownie and creme brûlée for dessert!

McEwen's is my favorite restaurant in Oxford, but I had the Cobb salad with chicken tenders yesterday, and the tenders were just small pieces of crust with little or no meat. It was as though they had these bits left over and ran them in the microwave. The rest of the salad was nice, but that aspect -- the chicken tenders -- was definitely bad.

Had not heard of it before, but we found it through Open Table when arriving in Oxford to visit our Ole Miss son. Very nice menu with good variety, but I had the lamb special. My family members ordered off the menu (pasta, fish, shrimp). It was all excellent. The portions were large, leaving no room for dessert. Pleasant wait staff. It looked like a well stocked bar, although we did not partake. Big screen TV playing the NBA game (volume in silent, thankfully). Parking is always in short supply in downtown, but the walk was not far. Overall, an excellent find. We’ll be back.

Recall the food being better. I heard the there is a new chef here. Service was chaotic. Waiters confused our orders twice with that of other patrons.

The fried oysters and gumbo were exceptional. The shrimp and crawfish etouffee over grits was delicious. Friendly service and a nice hand crafted cocktail menu topped off the evening.

It was our first time to eat dinner at McEwens. The food and service were excellent. We even left something on the table and by the time we got home our phone was ringing tell us the item would be waiting in the restaurant office. We'll definitely be back.

Ran out of buns for the two burgers we ordered.

Ran out of beignets.

Burger was too rare to eat (ordered medium).

Very poor day for a usually excellent restaurant.
