Great atmosphere and place to go with friends for a drink. The food is also very good, especially the hummus or stoner pie. The back patio is smallish but very cozy nonetheless.
A close friend of mine was visiting me from Orlando, FL and I asked her to join me in dining here for the 1st time. We absolutely loved everything. It was a very different eating experience. It's great when you try new dishes and love them. I will definitely be dining here again. Everything was delicious!
The best fish chowder I have found in Shelby county. Reasonably priced.
Memphis Nites is an adult nite club. Catering to party-goers 21 & up. Open 7 nites a week, spotlighted by the friday & monday happy hours. On monday & friday admission is free 5-8, there are 2-4-1 drinks from 5-8 and a free soul food buffet! On sunday 3-4-1 happy hour from 6-9, ladies free 6-9 and karaoke starting at 9.
Freeworld is one of the best jam bands to come out of Memphis in the last 20 years! check them out on Sundays at 10:30PM on the top of Beale inside of Blues City Cafe.
The popcorn appetizer is so good. I haven't had anything there I didn't like. I'm pretty picky about my fish. The salmon salad is the best.
Absolutely the worst dining experience on beal street!! A very historic place to visit but not necessarily the best dining experience. Service was extremely horrible. Had to get several drinks myself from the bar. Host knew absolutely nothing about the menu and could care less about anything. Mainly she wanted to stand outside and chat with her friends. When the food finally arrived, an hour or so later, the bun on my club sandwitch was burned and the french fries were cold. My friend who ordered a simple burger, found that his burger was burned to a crisp. Then came the overpriced bill, over $30 for a burger and a club sandwich. Would not recommend ever eating there, just have a drink(if you can get one) and listen to the music if there is any.
Best food on Beale. Service isn't the best due to volume of customers. Eat there every time we go to Beale
Very good food and great service. My wife and I eat here at least 3 times a month. We eat out 2 times a week. Always updating menu.
The goats drink beer. The place is a good outdoor hangout. And it's as irish as your gonna get for Beale. Great bar. had a lot of good times there. As for the 4 dollar tipper above me.....For 4 people? Thats weak. Don't go out in public cheapo.
Thank you for allowing us smokers to smoke.
You and The Cove are the only places that allow us to smoke (inside).
That I know of.
Any other restaurants 21+ let me know.
I can see why Windjammer was voted Best of in 2007, 2008, and 2009. Great Karaoke, lots of girls, friendly crowd and staff. I will be back.
we went to silky osullivans when all the blues bands were on in january and we had a meal and few drinks and we had a good night then she came round with the bill and we left an 4 dollar tip from the 4 of us and she came back and told us the tip wasnt enough and the bar staff get payed from the tips so we had to leave between 10$ - 15$ tip, we were so shocked, ive never heard that in my life and we payed 10$ and we just never went back, definately taking the water out of us, we have told everyone since we came back and when we were there and they said they wouldnt go there ever
We moved to Michigan many years ago. I still come back here when I visit relatives each year. I am totally addicted to the wonderful catfish! Good portions, fresh and crispy. Service is always wonderful. It can be a busy place at times, but you always feel welcome in a comfortable, down-home sort of way. :-)
This club is ok on the most part. What I didn't like was the waitress hitting on my boyfriend the whole night. We weren't even at a table, WE WERE AT THE BAR. Very unprofessional, but what do you expect, right? How about a little descent RESPECT!!!!!
If you are into nursing home crowds then this is the place to go. I have been 3 times and the same crowd is there every week. Drinks not great and the food needs some TLC.
In my opinion, this is the gastropub concept done right. That is, create a great bar first. Check. Even without a menu, this would be one of the best bars in town. Solid wood, dim lighting, heavy on the liquor, plenty of chalkboard cocktail and beer specials, and bartenders who are more like pro drinkslingers than maître d's.
Then, create a simple bar menu that doesn't try to be too clever. One that, instead of laboring to impress me with its cute, creative, heavy-handed versions of traditional bar fare, takes traditional bar fare and knocks it out of the park. Don't get me wrong. I'm all for a fancy grilled cheese with pancetta and goat cheese and white truffle garlic pomme frittes. But sometimes I just want a *really freakin' great grilled cheese.*
Bardog seems way more concerned with delivering the latter, and less with putting their special little cheffy stamp on every dish. Example: their French fries. Potatoes. Oil. Salt. No fancy spices, no flavored drizzles, no pretense. And yet, best fries in Memphis. Try them and see if I'm nuts.
Way to go, Bardog.
ps. Minus one-star for the smokiness that sometimes makes the place semi-uninhabitable on weekend nights. But whatever. I'll get over it. It's a bar.
great music,. and best long island ice tea in town
If you got a good laugh out of Paul P. telling people to "red a good book" then come get more delicious irony at a Wiseguys show.
A fun bar with a restaurant quality menu. I have been pleasantly surprised by the menu items, much better than the typical pub grub one has come to expect when going to bars. Great atmosphere and tons of live music. Service is always great.
