I was surprised to read the negative reviews. We were very pleased and glad we didn't read the reviews before we went in. Next time we... read more

Went to Alfred's on a very busy weekend for downtown Memphis and especially Beale so when my husband and I walked in with another couple we expected to wait and we didn't have a problem with this. We asked to sit on the rooftop, which was full so we were sat in a corner in the back with maybe 6... More

Our dinner at this popular eatery was included as part of an escorted tour. Apart from the food falling short of my expectations, I was appalled by truly horrific service. Info about my wife’s food allergy was relayed to the restaurant in advance, but unfortunately this got overlooked. When she asked a server to substitute a different salad dressing, he... More

Of all the places to eat on Beale Street, we chose the wrong one by going to Alfred's. It was extremely quiet & we were served straight away. The server was really nice but the food certainly wasn't. I had the salmon which was very bland and dry and my husband had the ribs which were just ok. I told... More

Excellent ribs, music and service. A real taste of Memphis. We were there on a Sunday night and enjoyed a 10 pc. jazz band. Couples dancing, perfect.

When we walked in and the place was pretty much empty (maybe 10 people) I should have known it wasn't going to be good. There was a lot of trash laying around. The service was questionable at best. We walked in and it took a bit for anyone to come to our table. When she did finally come it took... More

Typical bar type food. Food was ok. Deck seating is the best. Band downstairs so music could be heard from the deck.

Nice spot if you've got kids under 21. Life music played nightly and outdoor seating make this a prime spot for people watching and some decent food. My wife and I dined here with another couple, our a 15 year old and their 7 year old and there was something for everyone. Kids are allowed in the bar area with... More

right on beale street, the food was decent and the location was great. would have been better on a livelier night, no entertainment this night and not much of a crowd on a weeknight. i'm sure it would be better on a weekend or with a live act.
