Owen Brennan's Restaurant
Service was uncharacteristically slow - despite a light crowd of guests. Don't know why.
Food was excellent and waitress was exceptional.
I've been here a number of times and usually its very good. Tonight I had the special and it was disappointing. Other than that, all was ok. The cheese and sausage platter was good even if they ran out of pickles.
One of our favorite places. Great Food, great service and always feel like our business is appreciated. We both had large appetizers so being able to split the Blackened Red Fish was just perfect as it left room for dessert.
OBs is a great choice for lunch or dinner. The menu is extensive and food is consistently delicious.
We sat outside on the patio so noise at lunchtime was not an issue. We had great service and the food was great. A neighborhood hangout for us.
Service was terrible. Waiter lied to my wife about martini vodka. Said they didn’t have house vodka and sold her on the most expensive vodka. I asked the bartender when leaving and he confirmed they had multiple vodkas at much lower prices. Never again.
We lived in Memphis from 1988 to 2003 and I was at Owen Brennan's many times. We moved back to Memphis summer of 2018 and our first time back at Owen Brennan's was on July 18th of this year. Not disappointed, same quality of food and service I remembered.
This was definitely not our first trip to Owen Brennan's and it won't be our last, but I was disappointed in the entrée. We had the special for the night- Bacon-wrapped scallops with garden risotto. The scallops were cooked perfectly. The risotto was SALTY. I mean SALTY. The Romanesco lacked flavor.
Chuck is an amazing server! He gave us suggestions and made sure our glasses were never empty.
Dining experience is so consistant. Food is always delicious. Executive express lunch items are great value but very well done. Owen Brennan's is always a good choice!
Great food and service!
Beignets were better than New Orleans! Shrimp and Grits were amazing. Highly recommend!
I had high hopes for this place. My experience was extremely disappointing. The food was all wrong and lacked in flavoring. The bread was rock hard and inedible. The crawfish etouffee was subpar. The calamari was soggy. The only thing I truly enjoyed here was my martini. I won't be returning.
Showed early for reservation and was not even sat within 15 minutes after 130 reservation.
The meal from the kitchen was a little slow but the food was fantastic and our server was great. We’ve been here several times and the slow deliver is NOT typical. Definitely recommend coming here.
Loves the experience. The service was just a little slow.
I took my wife for a birthday brunch during the week. We arrived at the 11 am opening. The meal was really good as usual, except the our Eggs Hussarde and Eggs Sardou were boiled hard and not really poached. The lack of liquid yolk mixing with the sauces defeats the intention of the Benedict variations. A basic flub like this out if sync at a restaurant of the quality of a Brennans.
Great service, nice people , great food
Sea bass was not fresh! They dumped a lot of salt on the potatoes to hide the taste!!!
45$ for that for very disappointing!
It was a very enjoyable lunch on a Saturday afternoon
Food was delicious! Service was great! Music was jazzy!! Nice evening!
Outstanding as usual. My go to place when I want to feel good inside. The sea bass is to die for.
We’ve been to Owen Brennan’s twice in the last month. The food, service, and atmosphere was amazing!! This is now one of my favorite restaurants!! Love being able to make reservations since I HATE to wait!!! We will be back very soon!!!
We were dining prior to an evening downtown at the Orpheum, we explained that to our server and he exceeded expectations with our food. The two ladies shared an entree and salad and the kitchen staff split it in the kitchen which is something I love! The food was delicious and everything came out perfectly timed! Could not have gone smoother.
Thought we were back in New Orleans. Barbecue Shrimp was outstanding. Our server was Chuck and he was a big help in ordering cocktails and was very knowledgeable when we had questions. Don't leave without trying the Bananas Foster. Wished we lived closer or had more reasons to go Memphis as this would be a MUST stop.
Took a long time for food to arrive. However, manager stopped by, apologized and offered free dessert. All good. Will definitely return. Food is very good!
Good value with average service. Too dark to read the menu but the food was outstanding. Brunch is always a good experience but dinner services are lacking.
While I enjoyed the evening and the food, I thought the waiter service was below what I expected. We didn't get bread with the meal and our order for second drinks was lost in the shuffle and I had to go to the bar and ask about it. I think the idea of having 3 or 4 different people wait on the same table might create some confusion. I also have some ideas on how to improve the ambiance.
Owen Brennans is now our go to place for great food and amazing service. The Saturday brunch menu is a little weak but I was definitely able to find something delicious to order.
The live music was a good twist! Enjoyed it thoroughly
The food here is excellent. Creative and fun. Stands out from all orhers in town.
Great food! If you enjoy eating in NOLA, but you are stuck in Memphis, this is the closest you can get! You will think you are in NOLA, until you leave.
Hostess was excellent! Very welcoming and helpful. Food was good! But service was extremely slow. It took over an hour to get our food served. It was just not what I was expecting for my first visit.
Food was incredible! Our server was horrible. Our food took over 45 min. Think he forgot to submit the order. No apology. Had to get food to go as had to leave.
Most enjoyable lunch on Valentines Day - bringing to mind many happy memories of dining in New Orleans.
We were greeted warmly by the hostess but could hardly hear what she was saying due to the loud keyboard at the entrance, they apparently only had seating in the middle of the room as tables on each wall were already occupied. They did turn down the volume of the speakers in our area after about 10 minutes but it wasnt the atmosphere we had hoped for.
Great for lunch! So many options!
