So great! Amazing service, delicious food. Felt very fancy and old-fashioned, (like Frank Sinatra might walk by) but food was anything but stodgy. Really a fantastic spot for a family -- we felt like it was an occasion, but food was accessible for our 13...More

Nice dining establishment downtown Memphis that plays a silent movie while you dine, however the large plant in the middle kind of blocks the view depending on where you are seated. The atmosphere, wait staff, and food were great.

Visited this place as reviews were good on trip advisor. Meal expensive just for steak and fries. As soon as the waitress knew we were English she seemed to shy away and give better service to others. Waters not topped up and not asked if...More

The place is very interesting and well done with old tv shows plying in the background on a large screen. The service was excellent - available but not always there. The food was good and priced moderately. Overall a great experience.

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
