  • A must do in Memphis. This place is pretty much always packed but they seem to always have a spot to squeeze you in. The music and atmosphere are worth it. The food excellent. The service is usually slow because they are so busy.... just deal with it because it is what it is. The help is very nice though.
  • We ate dinner here. Our meals were great. Ribs, Chicken, slaw and baked beans. Dessert of white choc. Bread pudding was out of this world. Food was delicious, servers were very attentive. Music was great BB King All Star Band . I highly recommend this place,
  • My family visited with kids ages 8,10,15,16 and we all loved the music and the food. There weren't a lot of families there. It was loud and at first the youngest wasn't too sure about the place. But they all got into the music and we had a blast. The kids were on the dance floor. My 15 year old loved the ribs and chicken. My husband and I split the Zazoo catfish (something like that) and it was spicy and delicious. It was a fantastic night for our music loving family.
  • The atmosphere here is awesome. Good music. Great food. Excellent service!! Chicken fried chicken really good. Fried pickles so yummy and the peach melody drink is so good.
  • Came here for dinner, We shared the loaded tater tots which was a good choice as they were a big portion! I got the pork with mash and veg and husband got the chicken and ribs combo again both portions huge! Food was amazing! Also got a cocktail (unsure of name) but it was one of their signature ones and it was really fruity and so nice! Live music is really good too singing songs from all eras Def recommend a visit if in beale street
