I'm originally from New Orleans and can honestly say that The Second Line's food is the most authentic I've ever eaten in Memphis. The red beans and rice come closer to my homemade version than any I've tasted in the city and the shrimp po' boy was scrumptious. Both were just like mama used to make when I was a kid!
Resist Agenda 21.
Great Venue!!! They bring in the best that Memphis has to offer. There is more culture there than in a pan of fried chicken! Great staff, menu, and ambiance!!!
I ordered a House Special pizza with no smoked sausage. Had the person over the phone to repeat the order. Usually, the smoked sausage is chuncky, this time it was diced. I couldn't see until I bit into a slice. I called the restaurant and they said to bring the pizza back. I lived too far to take back. I didn't like the manager attitude so I told him word of mouth goes a long way,then I hung up. I called back to say I'm sorry and he hung the phone in my face. I wasn't even nasty. In my book, so much for Broadway.
No this is a 5 star place. For some of the best live music in Memphis the Blues Hall it one of the top places!
One of the best in Memphis for live music!
I've never had an issue with portions (I'm now seeing indicators of why the south leads in obesity) the food is great, service is generally great I was super thrilled that the arcade games are now "out of order".
My only chief complaint is after years of having one of my favorite bloody marys in the city they have become dull and boring. I'm not sure if it is the new fella making them behind the bar during brunch or what but they used to give me a kick in the ass and send me out the door happy. Still one of my favorite places to each brunch though!
NOT recommended. Dirty and nasty. This place is aweful. The worst customer service I've ever had. The food is not even edible. We went because the menu advertised fish and Chips and Rueben sandwiches however, after the drive there, they informed us they had no fish. We settled on the corned beef and it was two slices of Walmart deli meat on two soggy prices of toast...no saurkraut. We couldnt eat it and left it in the plate. We ordered a couple of beers but they seemed to be out of our first two choices and when we finally did get our first beer 15 minutes later, they were marginally hot. Then the band came on, Rust in Heaven or something er other and played a bunch of golden oldie tunes that might have been great if we were 70 years old. That was 30 minutes after the keyboard player kept playing a god aweful sound repeatedly on his keyboard. If we hadn't have had to wait for over 30 minutes for our limpy soft sandwich we would have left immediately. About 30 minutes of hearing Jet Airliner over and over was all we could do, we left the sandwich and warm beer and bolted across the street to a marginally dirtier and smokier bar but at least they served cold beer and the music wasn't as bad because they at least made us feel 55 instead of 70. If you want cold beer, decent service, decent music, decent food....this place is definitely not it. Irish pub?? Forget it, not even a clue why it's called Hadley's.
Very good Indian food. I've tried India Palace and a few other local Indian restaurants but Bombay is the BEST!!!!!! My mom's first experience with Indian food was here. She LOVED it!
The nationally ranked women's basketball team is exciting to watch and the atmosphere in Mallory Gym is unforgettable.
No parking, long wait over 45 minutes for a pizza, crust tastes like cardboard , overall rating 5 maybe
The veggie burger is to die for!....I had the onion rings as a side, also killer. They have live bands on the weekends. Great new spot in a familiar area!!!!
My wife and I attended a retirement dinner here and the place was a zero or less actually. I will mention the very little good before the bad. The serving staff was courteous and prompt. The food was subpar. Salads were bagged and the added items... cucumber and tomato were limp and not fresh. The steak was pedestrian and tolerable at best. Very little seasoning and definitely not hand cut as you would expect for the price. But, to add insult to injury I ordered two bottles of wine. One for my wife and I and one for the honoree and her husband. I was charged a mandatory 18% gratuity even though it was only two bottles of wine and I was not the responsible party for the event check. The general manager advised me that was their policy and that's that. Perhaps, that's that is how you should regard this place. It is definitively off my list of any place that I would choose to dine, recommend or spend my hard earned money. It is on top of the list of places to AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!!!!!
I have been to at least a dozen events at this venue and loved them all very upscale for the price that they charge Love the Loft look and art
There food is great but they no longer offer 3 for 1 but a 2 for 1 special. I enjoy myself with the music but the food services is slow but staff is friendly and nice
Java Cabana, Cooper-Young's Coffeehouse, has the longest running Open Mic Nite in the city, going on 21 years. Open Mic Nite is every Thursday from 8-10pm. You can bring your songs, your poems, your stories. All they ask is to share original works.
I don't know what the above people were complaining about - it's a freaking bar! I'd say they had pretty decent food and bevs for being a bar. Our waitress was HOT! The service was a little slow only because they were probably understaffed on the floor. The meal/appetizers/bevs were REASONABLY priced! I would go again.
We stumbled upon this cute little restaurant tucked away in Cordova and were very happy we did! The restaurant is very cute and the staff very attentive. It was a little fancier than we thought it would be as we had our two boys with us, but the staff was very nice and treated us no different because we had two crazy little boys. The food was very good as well. I honestly cant remember what I had because I stole so much of my husbands eggs benedict that was what he said and I quote"Possibly the best eggs benedict he's every had." And trust me he's had a lot. Next time would like to go back without the boys, would be a cute date spot.
