We Stopped in for Just Drinks

They had great martinis that were really cheap; we were there during happy hour and I think they were 4 dollars. They also had a good selection of nice local taps, and an awesome old school Stella Tap. The decor is beautiful in this place, the bar is gorgeous and they lay-out seemed chill. We... read more

Automatic Slim's is a great location for brunch. They also have a wonderful martini list when you wanna enjoy cocktails with friends. The artwork is beautiful and the staff is very helpful. I hosted a bridal shower upstairs and everything turned out wonderful!

The husband & I went to brunch at Automatic Slims. We were early, so we were seated & served immediately. The host seemed like he needed a hug and a new job. Our server was good; not super friendly and not rude, but efficient. Husband had scrambled eggs & the cinnamon roll waffle, which he loved. I had the chicken... More

Came in for lunch on a Friday. They were serving the brunch menu which was unexpected. Tried the salmon Benedict. Very good flavor but serving size was very small. I was hungry two hours later. Although happy with the flavor and presentation, not impressed with the portion size, or the service.

Very good breakfast and great service. Hostess said 30 minute wait but was maybe 10. Server was excellent. Great atmosphere in downtown Memphis.

Jan 1, 2015 stumbled upon Slims. We were essentially "forgotten " at the table for over 20 min, but Amanda, another server, stepped up and immediately got our meal going. SO glad we waited it out. Daughter had "chicken & waffles" and she pronounced it "best chicken ever". I had the "blackened salmon on spinach" & it was amazing. Husband... More

We had avoided this restaurant because of the name, but when our friends suggested us go we said we would try it. We are so glad we did. Some of the best food we have had in Memphis. Everything we had was super. The gumbo was awesome! the steak melted in my mouth and the chocolate peanut butter dessert was... More

Love this place. Belly up to the bar if you are solo especially for solo biz dining. You're safe here. Tables and bench seating fun as well. Redfish is excellent. I enjoy the artistic ambiance.

Although we normally have dinner at Automatic Slim's, we had occasion to be in downtown Memphis on a Sunday afternoon and saw the sign for brunch until 4:00 PM. It was quite crowded, but we were able to be seated after just a short wait. The grits were outstanding, as were the breakfast potatoes. Service was just so-so, but we... More
