Awesome as always. Business visitors from out of town always request this favorite spot. I tried the filet on this visit and it was just as good as everything else I’ve tried before. We’ll be back!
Had trouble getting to put order in, was ignored when trying ask first bread even though the server said they were bringing some, and had to flag someone down to get the check. It was like we were invisible
Seating is arranged comfortably distant from other guests. Foods are priced reasonably practical. Service is very tentative and polite.
Good place to have a fun time with friends or relatives in this pandemic time.
I understand that COVID has changed the way we dine. The brunch at Owen Brennan’s used to be one of my favorites. While I knew the buffet would not be an option I did not expect that the overall quality of the food would be so poor. The waffles were so hard and rubbery that we couldn’t even eat them. The potatoes were flavorless. The seating on the patio would have been nice but there were so many flies. They should have lit the nearby citronella candles to repel the flies. I knew it wasn’t just me as another couple at a nearby table left most of their food uneaten. The prices are a la carte so this was an expensive mistake. Never again.
The calamari was excellent, as was the Blackberry BBQ pork chop. Always delicious!!!
Our server was one of the best we’ve had anywhere and our meal was superb !
First time coming. I didn’t particularly care for the ham and cheese omelet. I will definitely try something different next time.
Fantastic Sunday brunch and service! Highly recommend!
Overall experience was amazing! The food was delicious & the customer service was outstanding!
We had the cat fish with the craw fish cream sauce, fantastic!!
Delicious lunch. Wonderful server and lovely atmosphere.
Perfect restaurant patio setting for lunch on a beautiful day! Of course, the food & service was excellent as it always is whether eating in inside or outside!
A lovely quiet dinner on the patio with excellent service and spectacular food.
We had a lovely family dinner and chuck, our server was amazing! Friendly, polite and there when we needed him. Excellent demeanor! Love the food at OB’s!!
The food was amazing the service was friendly we would definitely eat here again
Everything was amazing, from the food to the service.
Eaten at OB many times. Always enjoy the food.
I haven’t been here in a while and was glad to know the food was delicious as usual. Memphis is lucky to have such a good Creole restaurant. I’d almost come here just to have some bread from Gambino’s.
Women’s restroom need attention - need purse hooks on bathroom doors, needs updating and cleaning.
Food and service was wonderful.
An amazing meal, one of our favorites in Memphis!
We really enjoyed our meal. All the food was excellent, and the restaurant was not as noisy as many are these days. We were able to carry on a quiet, personal conversation without having to raise our voices. Our waitress was very pleasant and attentive. Thanks for a great evening.
We made a reservation however we didn't need one. We were seated right away. The server was prompt and informative. We were in a hurry to get to a concert but wanted a nice meal. We never mentioned this and we didn't have any problem getting out in time. It clearly is based on what you want and the pace you want. Would have loved the banana's foster but just didn't have time.
Great service and excellent meal!!
The options for lunch are tremendous and you can tell they care about the quality and taste of their food. Ingredients were fresh and well prepared. Service was excellent and even greeted very kindly at the door on the way in and out.
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!
