Meet the owner

When renowned Broadway star and all-round good-time girl Mamie Taylor asked a bartender in Rochester, New York, to concoct an original cocktail for her in the late 1800s, little did she know that it would lead to a restaurant bearing her name in Vancouver, British Columbia over a century later. "We wanted a name with two words,” explains Simon Kaulback, one of Mamie Taylor's two owners. "I found the name in a classic cocktail book and it just sort of stuck."

Simon and his long-time friend, Ron Oliver, opened the doors to Mamie Taylor’s in August 2013. Describing the menu as "comfort food, elevated," Simon says it can best be classified as modern American. "That leaves us lots of room to experiment and allows us to go basically where the mood takes us."

Really enjoyed everything. For a gastro pub, the steak was superb. Flavourful char, very tender underneath. Highly recommended. Chicken and waffles was tender and well flavoured. Mac and Cheese was good, I'm told Chinatown salad had nice dressing as well, but I didn't try it. Portion on the cornbread and biscuit could have been larger, molasses butter that came with it had wonderful flavour. Saw a few tables have drinks before dinner elsewhere, they don't know what they are missing. We will be back!

The team at Mamie Taylor's is absolutely the best in the world of hospitality! We go there often just as a couple, but I also hosted my company holiday party there on a Saturday night. We bought the place out for a very reasonable price for food/bev minimum spend given how much space you get, how awesome the drinks are and how delicious the food is! Ron and his team were super friendly, extremely accommodating, and managed the unforeseen, inevitable hiccups with grace and a smile. No matter the occasion, big or small, go here!

The bartender doubled as our server and was attentive but not overbearing. Food was uniformly yummy - ribs, burger, biscuits, and cornbread. Overall, it was a great "happy hour/early dinner" experience.

As always, Mamie Taylor’s was fabulous. We hosted our reception dinner in the back half of the restaurant and it went perfectly! The food was fantastic, the drinks were always full, and we felt very taken care of by Ron and his team.

Great for everything! Ambience was nice busy but not overly noisy- no having to shout across the table. Service was excellent! Chicken and waffles were delicious! Shrimp po’boy Was too! Fried pickles were also good! Tater grenades were ok a little light on flavour but still decent! Lots of drink options and good beer and wine selection!

Our server was very attentive, refilling our waters and coffees very regularly. One of our party informed the server that she is celiac and asked the server to check with the kitchen for what her options might be. The server and the kitchen were very good and really seemed to understand the seriousness of the request, steering my friend away from a number of items on the menu, but letting her know that she could create a breakfast out of a lot of the sides, or modify many of the main menu items. They were very accommodating. My chicken and waffles was really nice and had some nice flavours, though I wish the chicken had a bit more seasoning. I would definitely go back!

We booked the entire restaurant for our Holiday Party. It was by far the best party we had in the last 8 years. From impeccable service to amazing atmosphere, everything was on point! I would definitely book Mamie Taylor's again and recommend it to anyone looking for some delicious & well executed comfort food!

Located in the south end of Chinatown, Mamie Taylor has been a consistent place to experience good food, lively discussions and family style service. In the two years that I have been frequenting MT, I have never been disappointed.

Gaining a reputation for its menu and taxidermied permanent residents, Mamie Taylor’s offers a creative selection of house-invented cocktails, too. They also craft daily Boilermakers (beer cocktails!) so be sure to ask what’s on tap that day.

Date night restaurants in Vancouver’s Chinatown

Date night restaurants in Vancouver’s Chinatown

Open late throughout the week and into the early-morning hours on weekends, Mamie Taylor’s is an easygoing spot for a late-night dinner for two. With a focus on modern American cuisine, the kitchen turns out Southern comfort food dishes such as octopus jambalaya, Cajun dirty rice, and juicy fried chicken with sweet potato waffles. Stuffed animal heads adorn the exposed brick walls throughout the space, providing a great talking point when the conversation starts to lull. Keep the date-night banter flowing with a round of bourbon-based drinks and end the night with a slice of Mississippi mud pie to share.

Best of Vancouver’s southern cuisine

From its location in ever-changing Chinatown, to inventive meals and decor (including taxidermy ducks mounted on the exposed brick walls), Mamie Taylor’s offers a unique experience you’ll want to savour. Ideal for groups with sharing in mind, small plates include a surprisingly savoury brussel sprout salad and the trademark “Cajun dirty rice,” while the pork belly Cobb salad and cauliflower cannelloni are filling (and delicious) on their own. With modern, hand-made craft cocktails, intimate tables, and dark, moody lighting, Mamie Taylor’s is upscale southern dining done to perfection.
