We ate lunch here. Husband had shrimp and catfish. I had grilled catfish which wasn't on the menu but the GM was very accommodating. The food was excellent! Service was excellent! The greeter even remembered my husband from the day before.

Stopped by during Elvis week. No brisket that day. Ordered some fried seafood. Not memorable. Potato salad was the most notable dish

We arrived 15 minutes before they closed for a late dinner. They greeted us warmly despite the fact that we were they only thing keeping them from closing on time. I enjoyed my meal. I had a seafood platter with crawfish and shrimp.

After reading many of the reviews, we must have been here on an "off" night. We ordered and they were out of their best rib sauce. I got a sandwich with a different sauce, which was okay. My hubby ordered the gumbo and it just wasn't spicy like he thought it might be (it is supposed to be creole). Our... More

Went for late lunch on a weekday, Beale St itself was pretty much empty so Johnny G's wasn't very busy so can't really speak as to how it is when busy, however, we were both seated and served very quickly. Food was a little pricey for the portions but that's honesty to be expected on Beale St. Ordered a Ghost... More

We didn't eat a meal here. We just stopped in for dessert as we were walking along Beale Street. Someone had recommended the fried strawberries.They were delicious! Be sure and try them if you are in the area.

The best seafood meal I had while in Memphis. It is right on Beale Street. They have a walk up window if you just want to get it and go. Or a great interior for eating in. The staff/ service was THE BEST! Waiter was super nice and kept us happy. Fried pickles were AMAZING as well as the catfish... More

Crawfish poboy was really good. Crawfish étouffée had no crawfish. Fried strawberries were delicious. Service was a little slow but she was really nice and that made up for it. Atmosphere was all about Beale Street. I'm stuffed.
