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.

I wasn't very impressed with this restaurant. We tried to order oysters off the menu, and they were out on a Saturday during lunch. We did enjoy a beer, but left soon after. The bar was going through a renovation, so they didn't have many choices. They were understaffed and our waitress seemed pissed off. There are many other places... More

Recommended by a friend. Atmosphere was ok, everything else was great. Food was awesome. Fresh oysters, fried shrimp, catfish and especially loved voodoo nachos. You should try this place. Best food on Beale Street.

Nice but very casual Cajun joint on Beale st. We had raw oysters, fried pickles and various. Brisket po boy was different and very good. Waitress did double duty and shucked oysters!!!
