    Great location for a business lunch. Enough energy to keep the atmosphere vibrant, but quiet enough to have a conversation and not have to raise your voice. Delicious gumbo and salads, will return next week!

    Going to Owen’s is always a pleasant experience. A long -time Memphis dining tradition, Owen’s never fails to please. The service is always top-notch, the food is always excellent, and the menu is as creative as one would expect a Brennan’s product to be. One should plan a reservation if going for a weekday lunch!

    This was my husband's birthday dinner. When I made the reservation, I noted this. We arrived a few minutes before our time & were seated immediately. I did notice the table was in the middle of the room & would not have been my choice for a special occasion. The server arrived quickly, introduced herself & was polite. We ordered drinks & appetizers. The dirty martini & old fashioned were delicious! The fried crawfish was fine, nothing spectacular. My husband ordered a half dozen chargrilled oysters, they were small and there were only five. I jokingly said to our server that the kitchen can't seem to count, at first she misunderstood & said , "lucky you, enjoy" as if we had gotten one. She said she would bring another one. She never did. The food was like the crawfish, fine but nothing spectacular. I had the crab cake Benedict which was barely warm and my husband had the Catfish Boudreaux. I was very disappointed that my husband's birthday was not acknowledged. I thought at least the host and/ or server would mention that we were celebrating a special occasion. Overall, it wasn't awful and I'll probably come back for brunch. Seems like the bar was the only area that was on point this Wednesday night.

    We ate her last night. It was for our Valentine’s Day dinner. We were sat in a dark hallway to the side of the restaurant that was the traffic area for the restrooms and the kitchen. We couldn’t see any of the decor in the middle of the restaurant. Very disappointing! Our waiter was very good. Attentive and pleasant. The food was average. not up to the standard that I would’ve expected from this restaurant. We will probably not be going back. When we left the restaurant and went through the main diner area, there were nothing but men. Apparently they are those tables were saved for the businessman in town. What a joke. I can’t recommend this restaurant.

    I’ve heard great things about this place but mainly for brunch. Wasn’t impressed which says a lot bc I’m very easy to please lol. The oysters were good and the wedge salad but the shrimp and grits and sea bass where mediocre. The drinks weren’t strong at all. I’m willing to give brunch a try but won’t go back for dinner

    My sister and I had a wonderful dining experience. The food was absolutely delicious. The char-grilled oysters were so good I wanted to order more. Our entrees included shrimp & grits, gumbo and Catfish Boudreaux. Simply delicious. The staff was very attentive and met our every need. Will I eat there again? I most certainly will. Look forward to the next time. Thanks for a wonderful experience!

    We went to celebrate my mother’s birthday. It was her first time there and she really enjoyed it. Food was good per usual and out waitress, Barte, was great. One thing I would like to add is that people who were there for happy hour were hanging out and standing around the bar and did not want to move over when the hostess was trying to seat us but that is no fault of the restaurant. We will still be returning.

    We ordered chargrilled oysters but we could not taste any signs of oysters being chargrilled at all, they tasted baked and the cheese was hard… we were not given bread n butter upon arrival and had to request it. Another family came in after us and received their bread almost immediately, therefore, we requested bread and butter again and finally received it.

    The appetizers were good and the special sea bass entree was excellent. Bacon wrapped scallops were undercooked and watery and rested on a blob of awful risotto. Service was excellent but many other places here in Memphis provide much better food for the price.
