Re: “Alfred's

Glad we came for the 40th anniversary and attended the MM Reunion in some ways. I was very disappointed in the event though,(nothing to do with Alfred's). George Klein was not who I remember him to be. He was confused, irritated and didn't let the majority of the panelists even speak. Linda Thompson shows up and instead of introducing her, George continues to ask Jerry Schilling to retell a story he just got done telling. Linda just got up and left. Then George verbally attacks a young man who asked a question for the group, claiming he was an actor from the Sun Records movie which George thought was crap. I'm sure Elvis wouldn't have been pleased with how nasty George was to fans who'd come from around the world to attend the event. Very few got to ask their questions and some were even flat out ignored by George Klein who would then turn to the other side of the room and say, "Anyone else have a question?" It was an embarrassing and disappointing event on many levels.

Re: “Malco Majestic Cinema

This theater is in need of much repair. There's outside panels damage. Yes, this theater is old...but I regularly see movies there and I know they make money. So, put some of that money back into the building.

Food and Entertainment was a 4 and the service was a 2.5. The waitresses needed better skills and they kind of messed up on our ticket. They sure know how to keep a person entertained though.

Re: “The Dixon Gallery & Gardens

I'm not a fan of modern art, but the gardens are awesome.

Onyx is okay. The food was good and the drinks were good but the service is a bit lacking. A few times I needed to step outside to answer phone calls for business but each time I stepped out the server assumed I was walking out on my tab. Maybe they are used to people walking out, or maybe African Americans but I was really offended by this and will not ever be back. Maybe it is just me but I have never had anyone assume I walked out on a tab; I even let her know I was stepping out and in five minutes she came looking for me. Will not be back. EVER.

Re: “Alfred's

Salmon & veggies were not good at all, Live band was great, customer services was not good from bar tender taking order and servicing us dining at the bar. However from the door the men at the door were nice when entering being carded and paying for entry. When a new male bar tender came and started his shift the service was nice. My date & I started to enjoy ourselves. I wouldn't go there unless u just wanted to hear a good band and u weren't hungry or didn't want drinks. Oh and silverware was dirty.

Re: “The Spaghetti Warehouse

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.

Re: “Blind Bear Speakeasy

Overall a great place but to damn smokey. Memphis needs to get on board and ban all indoor smoking.

Re: “Molly's La Casita

+1 to Brasher. These other reviews must be from friends of the owners or something.

Food is OK but really could use a shakeup. Service is all over the place. Sometimes OK, sometimes terrible.

Margaretas are really good and they have an OK selection of tequila.

It's the margaretas that keep my wife making me go but I always feel stupid as I wait 45 minutes for one of their crappy 2-top tables.

Re: “Boscos

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.

Re: “Celtic Crossing

Something tells me some of these reviews are planted. The place is OK but not even close to 5 stars.

The food is mostly good; the fish and chips are great. Several items are middling but I've never had a bad meal. I'd love to see a few more beer options but what they have will do.

The patio is a lot of fun and a great place to people-watch.

Re: “Stone Soup Cafe

I tried this again and the service was much, much better but I'm still not sure how it would be during a lunch rush. The food was still great although it's apparent they use some frozen ingredients. A little tweak to the ingredients they use and this place hits 4 stars. Knock out the service problem once and for all and it hits 5 stars.

Re: “Jack Magoo's

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.

Re: “Loose Goose Bar & Grill

I give it a solid 3/5. I'm not exactly sure why the other reviewers had such negative experiences but as a Loose Goose regular I'll venture my best guess. Yes, this is a small bar catering to a small (mostly white) group of people but I have seen people of color there and nobody has hated the jews since 1950. It looses a star for having an extremely limited selection of beer (compared to Flying Saucer across the street - Loose Goose only has domestic light beers). Another star is lost because on certain nights, depending on the staffs inebriation, the Loose Goose can be very unfriendly towards outsiders - people outside of the group who usually frequents the bar. My biggest complaint is the lack of full sized pool tables. If you have quarter tables get a change machine!

Re: “Saigon Le

It's been awhile since I visited this restaurant, but am only going to put in my two cents based on my earlier visits. I don't understand why people are always rating this restaurant so high. The food is decent, yes, but the dining experience has always been less than fulfilling. The main problem is the service and attitude of the people in charge. The three times I visited Saigon Le, it was always the same story. I have since heard the same complaint from others who have been there. There are so many Vietnamese restaurants in town now that are every bit as good, if not much better, than Saigon Le, that I don't understand why people still hold this place in such high regard???? Have they even tried any of the others? They should! Based on the service and the "not-so-much-better" food, I choose to go to other Vietnamese restaurants

Re: “Bari Ristorante Enoteca

3 stars is being kind, but 2.5 stars was not available. My wife and I went there for our anniversary. Unlike the previous reviewer our OpenTable reservation was in the system and we were seated right away.
My main problem with this place is that you are required to order you entire dinner upon starting - meaning you order your appetizer, salad, entree, pasta all at the same time under he pretense that this enable a good flow of your meal. In practice this did work as we waited 20 minutes after our pasta course for our entrees and were no longer hungry.
Some items are priced accordingly, like their pastas which are very good and a good deal for the money, but their salads and veggie sides were pathetic for the price.
My wife ordered the whole Bronzino (fish)and immediately asked the waiter to fillet it for her. He immediately left and didn't return for another 10 minutes so the fish was already cold when he started. He then proceeded to mangles the filet job and left more bones than he took out.
At the end of the meal we mentioned all that we were not satisfied with, but the waiter just kind of nodded, and that was all the response we got from anyone. No manager to address our concerns, no apology from the server, NOTHING.
I would never go back to a place like this where the whims of the chef come before the pleasure for the diner.

Re: “The Grove Grill

Very enjoyable and decent prices. Small plates a plus

Posted by jalexsr on 07/20/2011 at 2:10 PM

Not so fast....but fresh...piping hot and the shakes are extra thick. What I'm not excited about is the fact that you can't taste the meat because of all the "secret shake". Way too over powering for this burger. The fries are amazing. Had the Buffalo fries and tasted the garlic fries. Both well done and still cripsy even though they are drenched in all the sauce/butter.
