My wife and I made reservations here about 10 days ahead, and we were sure glad we had done so. Their menu is pretty inclusive and we enjoyed everything we tried. A little pricey, but we were splurging. Don't overlook appetisers like crab cakes, and egg rolls.

I was one of a party of 15 at The Majestic to celebrate 2 High School graduations recently. When the ceremony ended and we were finished taking pictures we made last minute reservations and they were able and willing to accommodate this large group. The restaurant is located in a very nice section of downtown, on a street with no... More

This is a great place to dine outside in front of the restaurant. In the evening you will see the horse drawn carriages go by. Of course the interior of the Majestic is lovely as well. The menu is varied. You can choose from salads, burgers, steak, etc. This time we had burgers, and our daughter had the hangar steak.... More

In several visits, we have never been overwhelmed with food quality, but our visit this weekend is probably our last. We ordered a salad with salmon added, with the simple request that the salmon be well done. Others may like sushi style salmon, but we do not. When we finally received the salads, the salmon on both was cool, and... More

We were able to get a table outside as we arrived 10 minutes before they opened on Sunday. Great setting, friendly service, and food was great. I would recommend one of their benedicts.

Would have reviewed this as Good not very good, but better than average. Such a great location and atmosphere, had the spinach an artichoke dip to share which was ok followed by one of their signature flat breads, which was tasty – very filling couldn’t eat it all, shouldn’t have had the starter.

First time in Memphis and we happened upon the Majestic Grill for our lunch spot. We dined on the outdoor patio and, although it was hot out, our spot in the shade was very comfortable. We both had salads which were delectable and priced very well. Our waitress was very accommodating and friendly. We truly enjoyed our experience.

On line reservation system said call for reservations. They were open but didn't answer phoneI called 3 times over a 30 minute period. So we walked over. Slightly snarky about not having reservations. Duh. Hosts should know better. Got the same reaction from outside host and inside. Details, details..... Anyway ended up at Flight and it was fantastic.

A great place to go before a show at the Orpheum but not for the best food. Service was good but food was just ok. It's like a majestic Chili's without the drink specials.

While dining at The Majestic Grille you might expect to see Myrna Loy & William Powell sitting at the bar, zinging witty one-liners at each other over ice-cold martinis. Originally built in 1913 as the Majestic No. 1, a silent picture house that entertained Memphians for three decades, the restaurant gives diners a glimpse of the heady Hollywood days of ol'. From the beautifully restored Beaux Arts décor to expertly prepared classic cocktails to warm, gracious service to Chef/Owner Patrick Reilly's award wining, yet remarkably comfortable food, you find yourself feeling transported to another time. Add to that the largest private movie screen in the city showing silent films & classic movies and you're center stage in an atmosphere that reclaims the cinematic glory of the dawn of the silver screen. Named Best Restaurant, Best Brunch and Best Chef, The Majestic Grille has won accolades in regional and national press. As a community gathering spot for the Arts, The Majestic Grille offers up a dining experience that delights all the senses! Whether sipping a mimosa at our 'Ultimate' Sunday Brunch, hosting a business dinner in a private room, or watching the trolley roll by on our beautiful patio, we invite you to join us for a special dining experience in our historic downtown location. We look forward to seeing you soon, Deni & Patrick Reilly
