Neither my husband or I are beer drinkers but even at that it was hard not to find the emporium a site for an enjoyable lunch. In fact had our hotel been closer we would have returned for dinner. We had wine and I enjoyed a really fabulous salad and my husband a great sandwich. The waitress was... read more

Chill environment with great seats to people watch. The food was nothing to write home about, not great cuisine/but not horrid either. It is a fun place to go and sit on the couch and drink beer (if you're into that sort of thing) or just to hang out.

Great selection of beers. Good food. Big place. Right off of Beale St. by the hard rock. Can't go wrong if you are a beer lover.

Good selection of a variety of beer. Fun atmosphere. Service was good; the waitress spent a great deal of time making sure we enjoyed what we ordered. We also had dinner and the food was very good and reasonably priced.

Truly outstanding beer place, with an excellent selection of draught beer on tap. Service was efficient and pleasant. Plenty of space, and can open up front area to get some air in when hot.

Stopped here after walking around downtown Memphis/Beale street around 6pm. Even though there was a Grizzlies game, this place wasn't crowded which should have told us something. We took a seat at the window to people watch. Horrible idea - so windy and dusty from the street Food was absolutely average. The pretzel with cheese and bratwurst was not good... More

If you're a beer drinker and you like to try new things, definitely check out the UFO Club. After a few visits on nights where they normally charge cover, it pays for itself. I love the ever-rotating beer menu and the pint night deals are great. Service is generally poor, but you might get lucky and sit at a table... More

Visited here several times on a recent trip to Memphis. Very convenient location near Beale Street and the Peabody. Nice atmosphere, good food, great beer selection and excellent staff. All of the bartenders I encountered were extremely attentive and friendly, especially Brandy, Ashley, and Mary. Highly recommended.

We stopped in for beer and food, and both were good. The pretzels were great - huge and tasty. The tator tots were good - but a small serving. The Mac and cheese was good, but a small serving. We would go back.
