I popped in for a quick lunch and found that the menu was limited and the prices were a bit steep for what was offered. The food was ok, a bit bland but the atmosphere was nice. The restaurant is located downtown within walking distance to Beale St. and other attractions.

They have a lot of interesting stuff on the walls and it seems to be a... More

The food is reasonably priced but tastes amazing! This a must if you go to Memphis. The employees are nice, and it is clean. The gumbo, red beans and rice, and the peel and eat shrimp are so good.

We landed in Memphis and checked in our hotel. This place was right across from our hotel. Pretty large menu with fried seafood and grilled seafood options. Great hushpuppies. I had the fried oysters and they were fantastic.

Walkup. Order. And Enjoy great seafood. Fried oysters, trout, tilapia, etc. with quick service and all the trimmings to savor every morsel. Originally found this true "find" in Little Rock. I'll be going back cuz just like their fish, I'm hooked.
