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: “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: “Blind Bear Speakeasy

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

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: “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: “Huey's Cordova

Average at best.

Re: “Local

I've heard many folks raving about this hip little spot on Main, and so I'm hoping my first-time lunch experience was just a fluke. They were out of many key items (including all chicken and tuna) and so our dishes seemed to be lacking a bit of what was listed on the menu. I tried having a salmon rather than tuna tostada, and unfortunately it didn't quite work, but my friend thoroughly enjoyed the meatball sliders. Although I wasn't entirely impressed this first trip, I definitely will be back to try their dinner menu. It is a bit pricey, but the dark & chic atmosphere make it seem like an ideal date night place.

Re: “Boscos

I so want to give Bosco's a great review. The beer is great, and the appitizers are very good, try the fried artichoke. I have been to Bosco's three times over as many years, each time my food was either, burned, or raw. My companions food as been excellent. Each time they have corrected the problem with no issues. I want to like the place, but just have no luck when I order food there.
