Visited this past Sunday for lunch with a group of 10. The service was outstanding. Let me also say that this was one of the best selections of veggies I've ever seen and I live in the south. On my daughters recommendation we ordered a child's plate of catfish nuggets. The only disappointment were the nuggets were atop some old... More

Sold out of oyster po'boys, a house special. Settled for the shrimp po'boy which fit the bill nicely. Mostly fried selections and a small, but good selection of local draft beers. Split hot wings as an appetizer, which were pleasantly spicy. Only non fish selection was a satisfying Chicken Caesar salad. Friendly professional service in a clean, but somewhat noisy... More

Recommended to my daughter by someone on the plane to Memphis, we decided to give it a go. Took us a bit to find the place but not a bad drive at all. The building it casual and quaint. We were greeted promptly and served quickly and kindly. I had the catfish dinner with slaw, black eyed peas, hush puppies.... More

Food was good and moderately priced. We went here based on a recommendation of a long-term local we were meeting for lunch. Location was convenient and in a good neighborhood (sort of a hipster neighborhood, but the place was sincere). We found street parking very close, though there is also a small lot. It was a bit loud, but you... More

I have eaten at this specific location of Memphis Soul Fish three times. Each of the last two times, I have told myself, "I'll order something new this time." However, I have not yet done that! The Blackened Catfish Tacos are may absolute favorite dish there. You must choose a side to eat with your tacos. I really enjoy the... More

Just got back from eating at this place after taking in a movie. We visited the location in the shops of Forrest Hill Irene. Our service was excellent, the catfish was lightly breaded , crunchy and delicious. The sides, mac and cheese, collard greens and hush puppies were just wonderful. I think the decor fits the spirit of the place.... More

Great fish and small selection of other soul food items like greens, fried okra, hush puppies etc. Very eclectic beer selection. Small but cozy, and within walking distance of the cooper-young district. Friendly staff and decent prices,

The food was very good. This is a very small non formal restaurant where you go for the food not the decor. I had the salmon cesar salad and it was amazing. I paired with a draft beer, I was in heaven. Great price as well, I would return.
