Automatic Slims is a cool bar with fantastic food and drinks! We couldn't get into the Peabody for brunch when we needed, so we walked across the street to Automatic Slims. So glad we did! The food was not only great, but the freshly squeezed Mmosas were a treat too. You can easily eat here on a budget. Not too... More

The server asked for our ID and so I produced my husbands passport and my photo UK driving licence.Unfortunately, I was informed that... More

My daughter and I were here October 4 2014 for dinner before a evening out at the Orpheum Theater to see Phantom of the Opera. This place was wonderful! Everything was perfect from the food down to our waiter who had asked us if we were in town to see the play, little did we know we were getting a... More

Retro colorful decor, 3$ Martinis on Monday night with a giant martini menu, and great food and service. Try the crabcakes, and the grouper, and the beet salad. Skip the s'more. Our server was a lovely local gal with lots of suggestions about the menu and things to do around town. It's located a few blocks from Beale street, far... More

I ate here on a Sunday night when the restaurant was pretty empty. The menu has a lot of options. The chicken piccata was outstanding! It was serve with mashed potatoes (equally as delicious). The waitress was friendly. Service wasn't exactly rapid but I never felt like I needed to speak to a manager about it. The dessert I got... More

Only one other table occupied in the restaurant and still service was terrible, had to ask for a glass of wine and 3 waitresses in the corner gossiping and on their phones. I ordered pork chops, small pork chop that was dry, about a third of a potato... More

We walked past this place a couple of times and decided to pop in for brunch. AMAZING food. The atmosphere is really cool. Lots of different textures; metal, wood, light and great artwork. Our server was not as friendly as we'd like, but she was still very polite and on top of things.
