What a pleasant surprise my visit to this restaurant was. I had some trepidation, having read a review from the commercial appeal which talked about delicious Italian pasta at a very reasonable price. Having eaten there twice I can only say what a wonderful restaurant experience it was. The preparation is impeccable, the food is delicious, and generously served.
I wish these two gentlemen a great success, they have brought something new and different to our restaurant community.
Ray'z has the best bar-b-que on the planet. His sauce is delicious enough to drink. Ray'z is a must if you want the real deal!
Great place, dance, socialize, patio, pool tourneys, bands and karaoke!
Steaks good, everything else came from Costco. Nothing done fresh and rolls were 3 days old. The Calamari right out of frozen foods section. Not worth the 200 dollars for 3 6 oz filets and a Calamari app. Sad they can be so pretentious to charge like Ruth Chris and be so Mcdonalds. No Table cloth btw. Very insulting.
Wonderful sandwiches and desserts. The owners are from the old world and do things the old fashioned way. Absolutely the best Tiramisu I've ever tasted.
Not terrible food but it's hard to say a chef made it. Pretty sure it's just frozen stuff from Sysco being heated up. Seems like this place draws the more redneck portion of downtown visitors. Staff is not very friendly. I'd put it on par with Coyote Ugly.
Queen Ann and the Memphis Blues Masters are the best Blues band I have heard in quite some time. They are amazing!! The Blue Note Br & Grill is a fabulous place with an awesome atmosphere, if you like Memphis Blues. I will be there again and again, now that I live in Memphis.
Pretty good food and very good lunch deals. No draft beer - in Memphis in 2015! Service can range from super to almost nonexistent. Very unfriendly building for those with disabilities. And I have never heard cursing in a service establishment like that when one of the managers goes on a rant.
What is hilarious is the female part owner of this business was very rude to me for no apparent reason and she pretty much through me out of he establishment but nefore she did i told her the business would fail and whatdo you know it is.... i never wenr back ... guess she wanted more of a white crowd that's cool but ddon't be rude because you are not comfortable with yourself ......only god cwn judge.
One of the top places in town to get the freshest REAL food! thanks for being here in Midtown.
So, last night my mother and I went to Half Shell on Winchester to grab a bite to eat. After the hostess sat us down we began to view the menu. As we are looking at the menu, a waiter walks up and asked what we wanted to drink. I hesitated because he just walked up out of no where and didn't even introduce himself. So, anyway, I ordered a VIP and my mother ordered sweet tea. He returned back with the drinks. He asked if we were ready to order and my mom replied, "no not yet" because she was still trying to make her decision. He left the table and returned maybe 10 minutes later. So, when he finally returned we began ordering our meals. My mother said, "I would like to order the Half Shell PoBoy." His response was "Um… well…. Half Shell has a lot of PoBoys" with a kind of snappy attitude. My mom and I looked at each other and she informed him that she would like blackened shrimp after skimming the menu fir her options. Anyway, we order our meals and we eat. As we are dining, two other couples came in one sat behind us and the other couple sat in front of us. Both couples were not African American. So, I immediately noticed that he was the waiter for both tables. I could hear him walk up to the tables, 1) introduce himself, 2) inform them of the specials, and even made suggestions. This pissed me off because their are still people out here that are extremely prejudice. His attitude and tone was completely different.
Anyone who knows me knows that I tip really well. I normally start at $5 and let you determine if it goes up or down. My mother suggested a $1 tip but knowledge is more powerful so I left him a tip. "You should not make a difference between white & black customers." His name was David (found that out from the receipt) and if you go in there I would not recommend him.
great fish sandwich.... love the potato skins as a side.
the fried shrimp is yummy as is the hamburger.... Steak sandwich special on Monday night... love Belmont!
SO, so good. Everyone, including some folks more accustomed to standard American fare, were blown out of the water. The snapper comes whole, which was also a fun conversation piece. I loved even just the simple, undressed charred tofu kebab and tomato salad spiced with jalapeno and some other spice one can't seem to put their finger on; incredibly refreshing!

Great little Bar. I'll be there tonight with my band jamming from 9 until.
Great beer selection, hot bartenders. Very cool place!
great food and staff!
Had a great experience here! Miss Shawna helped me so much and was sweet as could be. Will be here again.
I LOVE this shop! They are one of the only places in town that carry Lola jeans - which are my absolute favorite. The staff is always nice and I could spend all day playing with the make up and body products. Definitely one of my favorite places in Midtown.
