I met sammy haggar there in the 1975
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.
It wasnt what I thought. Place was super packed and super hot! Small dance floor. It was definitely not for me. Plus THEY are a full bar and BYOB. BYOB admission was a total of $30. $3 for a can of coke. The owner is making a killing and obviously not investing it back into his business! #IWouldNotRecommend
Overall a great place but to damn smokey. Memphis needs to get on board and ban all indoor smoking.
Total shithole. My friends and I come back from college and partied here. It is still a mystery to me why people would choose this inbred oldhome. To hear that this place is called restaurant, is a joke. This place is gross.I feel genuinely sorry for anyone who eats food from here. Every single staff is above the age of 50, except this tubby Asain, avoid him at all costs, huge asshole. I always feel the need to shower upon leaving this place. Maybe it's because every single surface of this rundown bar is sticky icky. Service is nice and slow, every time. Gotta love that musky cig/local drunk sweat aroma they got going though. GO TIGERS!
It is soooooo fun! The bouncer and the staff are so sweet! I love it so much!
I MUST SAY THAT THIS PLACE ROCKS...1ST ANNUAL LADIES NIGHT W/FAMILY ..SO WE DECIDED TO DO KAROAKE ...SO ANYWAYS WENT TO THE WIND JAMMER AND BABY WE HAD A BLAST....THE BURKS FAMILY...MUST DO IT AGAIN SOON..........LOTS AND LOTS OF FUN
The food is bar fare but it's a bar so what do you want? Actually, the food is much better than other similar places.
The beer selection is what draws me. It really gives Flying Saucer a run for its money. That alone would rate it 4-5 stars.
Factor is the food and it rates 3.5 but I'll round up in this case.
Food is OK but nothing really knocks me out.
The deck is fun and great for people watching.
The beer... oh the beer! It's a brewpub and they should be hitting this one out of the park. Sadly, I just don't love it. I drink lot's of craft brews and I homebrew so I like to think I have a palette. That said, Bosco's simply doesn't win me over.
I'd give 2.5 stars if I could but I'll just round up.
It's just a typical sports bar with typical bar food. All the gushers are a little suspect. For the same area of town, Bayou is much better. MUCH better food, better location, and easy for walking to and from other places. There is also the Blue Monkey, the Irish pub across the street (Dublin House?), Local Gastro Pub, and Louie's will be opening in Overton Square, so you will have five great places to watch sports with good food and within a block of each other....and about 10 other places for dinner, movies, sports, theatre, etc. All and all, Broadway is a one stop destination, unless it's for some one day festival or outdoor art show....and again, OS will be locking that down soon too. Best of luck, but this place is far from the over the top reviews here. I pity the tourists who read this paper to get ideas from the locals.
Average at best.
Please still be open... Have a vivid memory of this place. Visited once in maybe 2002- I've been there in my dreams and want to return in person. Will be in Memphis in November and will drive around in an attempt to find it. A drunk man at Hernando's predicted that I would marry the man I was with in 2002 and he is, in fact, now my husband. Unfortunately, I still can't dance.
This is a really fun place. I don't sing karaoke, but it is entertaining to watch, listen and dance. Some ppl are REALLY good, some REALLY bad, but they get up end do it and it's entertaining! Very good servers. People come in from all over. Excellent system for singing. Best time to get there is about 9pm!
Drink prices are about average.
Love this place! The Bacon-wrapped shrimp is GREAT! The staff is wonderful. Mike the bartender rocks and Jaqi Lloyd the waitress is really good at keeping my drinks filled.
Fun, really good entertainment! Chicken Nachos are the bomb!
Excellent entertainment! Overall a great place to eat, listen to the band and have a few drinks.
Love these cheese balls! Drinks are great too!
