Very good; nice selection of beer

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.

A seriously fabulous selection of truly unique beers, ciders, and even gluten-free. I've never been disappointed any any location, and this one is just as impressive!

On our recent visit to Memphis, we came across this bar close to the Beale Street attractions and ended up using it on both nights. It had an excellent range of beers, great atmosphere and we felt most welcome by the friendly staff. Strangely, it proved to the exact opposite of their dreadful Nashville outlet.

The place has a great vibe and open seating. It was close enough to Beale Street but far enough away that we were not overwhelmed with the loudness of Beale Street. We sat at the open window bar and people watched. Our Saucer pizzas were delicious but the server was very slow. I think she forgot to put my pizza... More

Lots of great craft beers on tap. I enjoy trying local brews when traveling and TN beers are quite tasty. I don't recall names - we weren't taking notes, we were having a good time. Just a block off the Beale St commotion, it was lively with a moderate crowd, but found a spot with no waiting - twice on... More
