Sunday in Oxford, game day weekend so you can guess the town was packed but the restaurant was an oasis of serenity.

Absolutely HORRIBLE. My husband ordered duck gumbo, came out quickly and delicious as always. The three of us had ordered from the brunch menu, two burgers and chicken/waffles. We waited 30-40 minutes and still no food. Finally our waitress said there had been a mishap in the kitchen and lost our receipt. That she needed our order again and the kitchen would make “it on the fly”. While we have watched other being seated after this and served food. In fact, burgers and chicken/waffles. Waited another 30 minutes and they said that it would be out soon. Never showed up. Finally, we gave up and left. Definitely disappointing and not the service we expected. Manager never came by our table or noticed. We usually enjoy their brunch & had reservations for months to celebrate our daughter’s 21st birthday (her favorite place for chicken & waffles)

The food is always good and the timing, waiters,etc. above average. It is a little noisey when full of diners. The manager is excellant in solving problems and making the guests feel special and well taken care of. The reservation online service was a little difficult after I complete and ws accepted by the service I was offered 2 more reservations which made for uneasiness with the original reservatiion.

Food and service was excellent...only complaint was the portion size of the mussels entree...it was even paltry when compared to appetizer portions at other places. But great flavors and would go back again.

We have eaten here for years and years, due to the previously consistently great food and service. NO LONGER!!! We will not be returning. The menu has changed on several fronts, no longer offering the Caesar salad, prime rib, and other options The salmon was EXTREMELY MEDIOCRE. A total WASTE OF MONEY. Service was so-so. We are so sad that this establishment has gone so far downhill.

Definitely top five WORST meals of my entire life. Seriously inedible. Server made no mention of my friend and I both not eating and didn’t offer to accommodate or apologize. Pretty poor experience overall from start to finish and a waste of $120.

Seriously unsure how this place has the rating it does because I travel all over the world and would be hard pressed to match such a negative experience in recent years.

It was our first time at McEwens. The food was excellent. We order the fired oysters to share and loved them. I had the sea bass (it was perfectly cooked) my husband had the steak (he loved the chimichuri sauce) we were also impressed with the cocktail menu both variety and innovation. Definitely will return.

The food was wonderful as alway! We were seated ahead of our schedule which was wonderful but the seats were at the front window and it was very warm and sun was really bright and no shade to pull down. The waiter said he’d bring bread but did not till we asked for it after the entrees were already served. But I still love eating here!

Our server, Taylor was outstanding. The risotto was totally delicious, but unfortunately, our salmon was just on the top side of medium so it was not as good as it should have been. Ambience would have been outstanding if we had not been placed at the bottom of the steps on the lower level, so every server going and coming from the back of the house to the front and up and down the steps to the upper level went right past our table.
