If you're ever in Oxford Mississippi you won't regret stopping by this restaurant. I do company seminars two days a week somewhere all over Mississippi and Alabama. They have everything from steaks, seafood, and fried catfish. I've tried it all and all of it is excellent. I definitely recommend this restaurant!

Food was excellent. The biscuits are some of the best I have ever had. Victoria, our server, was awesome.

Long overdue review - we visited Oxford back in January for an ole miss visit with my daughter and our dear friend - We ate dinner at McEwen's on the square and felt like we were in NYC! Unbelievable food , atmosphere and wait staff. Very nice wine list. The food was top notch. We can't wait to visit again!!

Great value for the dollar, classic cafe on the Square. Provides that old South flavor to the meal. Reasonable. Super location to meet friends. Highly recommend this dining experience.

Rave reviews all around from our table of seven! The steaks were perfectly cooked and the presentation was enticing, to say the least. From salads and gumbo before dinner to our dessert trio of banana cream pie (covered in chocolate sauce), cheesecake and creme brulee - yes, we tasted all of these - everything was well prepared. Service was excellent... More

Tried McEwens for the first time last week and we had a great dining experience. The duck gumbo was outstanding. We also had fried oysters as one of our apps and they rate as good as any I have tasted -seasoned to perfection -very tasty. Call for reservations in advance but cost is very reasonable.

The folks at McEwen's never disappoint me. The service is always friendly and timely, the specials are always special, and the menu items that I go back for are always as good as I remembered (best oysters anywhere). Consistently one of the very best in town.
