Valentine's Day Perfection!

Dashed off to Memphis for a Valentine's celebration and couldn't have found a better place to have dinner than The Brass Door! Much more than we would have ever expected on first glance. Seamus was tending bar and engaged us in conversation adding to the ambiance. The chef had prepared a couple of... read more

We arrived in town late on Valentine's day and were looking for a chill place to get some dinner. The Brass Door was perfect! I had the burger with some tasty carrot-ginger soup, husband had fish & chips. House wine was good, particularly for $5 a glass. Nice atmosphere, and the bartender (who was also acting as the waitress) took... More

Stopped in for lunch on a saturday in feb. Got a warm welcome. Bar reminds me of the pubs back in the UK! Ordered Guiness & a cuppa then some food. Hubs fish & chips was great! My Shepheards Pie was better than my Nana made! Portions huge & British football on the big screen was a bonus!

I was so excited to find an Irish Pub close to my apartment, as an Aussie I have experienced many an Irish Pub back home. I'll preface this with the fact that I like how bright the place is, there's lots of windows (we were there for lunch). I was disappointed though with the food selection, it was not what... More

We went on a Saturday specifically to get the Irish Breakfast. It is located in an old bank and there is free parking around there on Saturday and Sunday. They don't do brunch specials on Saturday. They did not have any champagne, so we drank Guinness and Whiskey (when in Ireland, or just trying to pretend you are...). There was... More

We stopped in The Brass Door to watch some World Cup football and ended up spending the entire afternoon. Our waitress and the bartender were super friendly and super fun. They have Magner's cider on draft, so we drank Snakebites and Black Velvets. They also have a great whiskey selection. And the food was excellent. This is a wonderful American... More

Went here to watch a World Cup game on the giant projector TV. We were seated right away in some excellent seats. It was early, so the place was a bit empty. Didn't stay that way long...this is obviously a popular place for the people who work downtown to have lunch. It got full quick, including the upstairs seating area.... More

If you are in Memphis and you don't visit here then you have wasted your trip there! An amazing pub, great food and very reasonably priced drinks. Seamus is a model landlord, making everyone feel so very welcome. As well as great food and drink, it is also the home of the Memphis Arsenal Supporters (the Memphis Gooners). The welcome... More

Memphis early evening in winter can seem pretty odd, (a few menacing drunks about threatening knives on people) but we walked past this place, peered through the windows and went in on the basis that they looked normal enough!!!!!!!!!! Host Seamus made us feel totally welcome and the atmosphere was brilliant. Good bad food and we even got a lift... More

Totally new menu - not at all like normal bar food ! A must try ! Upstairs for a private intimate dinner or downstairs for a more open time! In the basement for social, business etc..
