Great music and food.... We had a great time there and I danced my butt off...which says a lot because I never dance...we went back each night and the live music was always great...

Food was fantastic and the music was great! We had a large party (9) but got a table quickly and our server did a really good job .. best brisket I've ever had and others in our party thought the ribs were amazing as well!

We stopped in to grab a bite to eat while checking out Beale Street in Memphis. The food was good and the beer was cold but I have to say that after the excitement of live music in bar after bar on Broadway in Nashville (early on a Tuesday evening), we were disappointed to find no live music here at...

I have been here several times as a local to stop in for a drink and listen to music. It is a fun place. What I never knew is how good the food is here, especially the BBQ. Not sure how I missed it but do try the BBQ and you wont be disappointed. The upstairs seating is a great... More

We went here a couple of times as a last port of call during our mid-week trip Memphis. On both occasions they had great bands on playing some good stuff and getting the punters up dancing.
