We have been there twice and have enjoyed the food both times. I now have a new favorite Italian restaurant. I'm glad they have come to Bartlett and are not part of a chain. I love supporting my local community. I can definitely say we will be back.
Awesome! You don't go to the Windjammer to eat - although the bar food is decent - you go for drinks, the fun crowd and the karaoke. We had a blast.
Gee, somebody's an a biggotted jerk. Anyway, I loved the place. Always have.
I wish I could've written this sooner, but alas, my work schedule is long hours on certain days. Less than a week ago I went to the TJMulligans on Houston Levee Rd in Cordova, TN to have a few drinks after work and unwind with that lovely pastime “Buzztime Trivia”. There was only one other player at the time, and after a few unsuccessful attempts to conversate across the 15 foot gap between us, he moved chairs to sit directly to my left, sharing the TV I was watching. I won't mention his name but it starts with an 'R' and rhymes with 'Peed'. At first we were having fun, talking trash, making jokes and explaining our (sometimes poor) trivia selections. It is at this time that I should say I'm a 29 year old normally attractive, married, tomboyish female who does not 'flirt' but enjoys normal people conversation. I have lived in 'Murica my whole life and have no problems having normal 'people sitting across the aisle on a bus' or 'people you see at the smoking section at work' or 'people who cashier your groceries' chit-chat conversation. I was a bartender and server for many years and have never had a problem treating all people equally and with respect- regardless of age, sex, orientation, race or any other bu||sh#t divisors. Under no invitation on my part, this guy decides to put his right hand on my (very) upper left thigh and give it a rolling squeeze. I was shocked. I know I'm probably a lucky member of the female persuasion in that I had never been groped in such a manner, but I have had drunk a$$hole$ swat at my waitressing behind as I'm walking by with a tray of food (to which they got a stern WTF reprisal). I gave this jerk the benefit of the doubt (I know) and said, “I did NOT give you permission to touch me, do it again and I will taze you.” Now I didn't have my taser on me, but somehow I thought the phrase made it more clear that his advances were not welcome. What does this lookalike for a certain fictional character baring the chest tattoo “I AM A RAPIST PIG” do? He takes his fat, sausage-like appendages and grabs my upper thigh again in a rolling squeeze- this time sliding his corpustular fingers into my inner thigh area and Strongly “massaging” my flesh between his nasty, shameful “I'll do what I want” digits. With a pervert's smirk no less. I yelped out “WTF, Man!?”, physically pushed his arm away to make him let go, and moved down to a different seat. This is where the story gets interesting. I immediately told the female bartender while in earshot of the Molesting Meat Pocket (MMP) and at least one barback. She said “I'll talk to him.” She DID NOT. The MMP proceeded to talk about how I'm drunk, I'm always drunk, yadda yadda, he didn't touch me, lies, lies etc. Now, being of Irish descent, I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that 2 drinks does not a drunk me make. But that's besides the point. Even if I were wearing gogo boots and a tube top instead of cargo pants and a tshirt, even if I had been on my tenth drink instead of my second, HE DOES NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO MOLEST ME! As I watched him being served another drink and his food order without ANYTHING being done about it, I again let the bar staff know that I had just been sexually molested in front of them. NOTHING WAS DONE. I happened to see the same female bartender in the ladies room just after that where I complained a third time and demonstrated (on myself, not on her) exactly what he had done. “I'll talk to him.” SHE DID NOT. Apparently the MMP is a 'regular' and can buy his way out of repercussions. All of a sudden it hit me. This is what those women in India go through with their 'Eve-Teasing'. They are molested, assaulted, and nothing is done about it when they report to the authorities. The assaults are bad enough, but the most infuriating part is that NO ONE DOES ANYTHING.
Would I recommend TJMulligans in Cordova? Only if you enjoy being felt up by disgusting, MMPs at the bar, in front of the morally devoid waitstaff, only to have your protests ignored in favor of slimy, under-the-table $5 tips that are 'earned' at your expense.
Eat shoguns for good food at great prices. Eat well is expensive dog food. Let the Memphis Asian war commence!
great place and great food, EXTREMELY crowded on saturdays and people can be rude in the cluster. other than that my family loves the place.
great location, great food, great tea !
A group of us went there for lunch a little while back & none of us were disappointed. As a matter of fact, everyone is the group said we needed to come back & try something different.
It's a chain restaurant, the food is average, but plenty of it.
I'd skip $5 Wednesday's, they cut the portions in half and really skim on sauce.
Best Egg Rolls around, and very good hot and sour soup.
Nothing fancy here, but the Chinese is above average for Memphis.
This is the best Mexican in town, since El Chico closed.
My friends and I went to Evergreen Grill for dinner after hearing rave reviews. The atmosphere is casually elegant and the service was superb. I was unsure what to order as everything on the menu looked appetizing. The server suggested the Evergreen Chicken which is the house specialty. I decided to go with that suggestion and was glad I did! The chicken was juicy and succulent, grilled to perfection and topped with olives, spinach and feta cheese with a cream sauce. Delicious!! My dinner companions ordered the Chicken Parmesan, Fish Tacos, Seafood Pasta and Steak. Everyone was equally impressed with their dishes and I was able to sample from their plates and everything was tasty! For dessert, we ordered three different cheesecakes to share with the table. We tried Key Lime Cheesecake, Red Velvet Cheesecake, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake. All the flavors were absolutely divine and portions were ample for sharing! I will definitely be returning to Evergreen Grill because there is so much more on the menu that I want to try!!!
Hard to completely mess up breakfast ... the place needs a good cleaning, it's filthy.
food is good, potions are on the small side
Excellent friendly service. Cool, small, European-feel to the restaurant. DELICIOUS food. Excellent quality dishes, and from all local products. Highly recommended.
They cater my church's Wednesday night dinner (Orthodox Christian, so we don't eat meat, fish, or dairy on Wednesday, Friday, or during a fasting period like lent) and it was very good. You won't mistake their burger for the real thing, but as veggie burgers go, it was probably the best I've had.
I went to Fino Villa last night in Collierville only to be told they are not honoring coupons from WREG as they never authorized them, even though they have been up several times over the past year. The manager there couldn't be bothered to even talk to us personally. We were told to contact WREG to get a refund.However, they don't do refunds only exchanges for things I wouldn't want. Now I am out $50 bucks and had my anniversary plans sidetracked. I will never do business with Fino Villa again.
Please tell me ownership of this place has changed - the one on Overton Park is absolutely terrible now - food horrible -it just does not feel right - I loved this place years ago - but with this type of service and food, it will not last much longer.
I don't know how he spells his name Kacey or Casey he is the Manager. I let him know that the food came out luke warm and we were on lunch and he didn't come out when I asked for the manager. I had to call him on the phone 20 mins later and ask him to come out. The waitress was doing her best her leg was in a cast. But we had been waiting for over 30 mins for food and it wasn't even busy. So I just knew it would be hot. But it wasn't. So when he did come to the table he was really rude and had a very nasty personality when it came to customers or black people. Either way he told us not to come back. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone as long as he is the manager there. I wish I had the owners name and number. I talked to the people that work there and they told me he talk to them very ugly also. The only thing I could say is Wow!!!! I have a business and I have come here a number of times and never had a complaint. But today I will never come again until they get rid of him!!! I hope the owner checks the reviews from time to time.
