We started with suicide onion rings and fried pickles. Both were excellent!!!!! Two of us had cheeseburgers and fries. Two had french toast with peanut brittle butter and cranberry rum syrup. Everything was excellent. I also had a beer mimosa. Different but good. The service was also excellent. There were two young ladies. One was named Julianna. Unfortunately, we did... More

Initially I thought the Memphis Tap Room was somehow connected to Memphis, TN near where I live. Instead, it is named for the street it is on. In addition to beers (a nice selection), Memphis Tap Room has a great selection on pub food; appetizers, burgers and sandwiches, entrees, and desserts. The atmosphere is laid back and comfortable. A great... More

I live in the neighborhood and walk here often. They have a nice selection of local beer and a great menu. They also brew their own so that was fun too. There is an outdoor beirgarden in the lot next door where you can get beer cans and eat from a food truck and hand out at some picnic tables.... More

Not only was the food and beer great, the staff went above and beyond. We came to the restaurant due to Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives. We needed a restaurant that was handicapped accessable for a wheelchair. I called and asked. I was told that they due to the age of the building the were not accessable but they would... More

I love this bar/restaurant for many reasons, but the top reason is: vegan options. With an "s" as in plural. Not one, not two, but many. There are ALSO options my non-vegan hubby enjoys. Each time we are here, we both try something new. Food is served hot and tastes so good.

I found the Memphis Taproom here on TripAdvisor, and decided to try it after all the good reviews. It is a local place in a busy neighborhood with street parking. My daughter and I sat at a table in the bar and the bartender gave us awesome service. We asked him for beer recommendations and he suggested two based on... More

We went to the Memphis Taproom for Sunday brunch. The menu is somewhat limited, but the food was excellent and the service was outstanding.

We were heading to the Pterodactyl gallery to see this Kennedy exhibit and needed a place to grab a bite nearby, about 1.6 miles was this incredible little Resturant. Innovative and creative ideas on the menu, a few yummy grilled vegetarian ideas along with fried chicken and even a refreshing kale salad. The bartender was this wonderful women who introduced...

My husband saw this spot featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives on Food Network. We were looking for a place to have lunch with our teen sons to celebrate the end of school so we thought we would check it out. Don't be fooled by the exterior of this bar/restaurant. It is a place you might easily drive by unless... More
