I never give bad reviews, but people need to know about this & I don't appreciate being treated like crap when I'm a paying customer. First time visiting here with my husband to watch the US play & the owner was incredibly rude to us. As we walked upstairs exploring the bar, we weren't fast enough for him & he... More

We really enjoyed this place! Had the Sheperd's pie (but it seemed to have hamburger meat instead of lamb). Nice atmosphere, just super loud music. Will come back!

Best part of the pub is by the door, get in early and get the table and chairs. Nice air conditioning temperature you don't need a jumper which is great when it is 40 degrees outside 😥 good service. Can't comment on the food, but kindly they let us order in when the chef didn't come to work.

I really dislike giving negative reviews so let me start off with what was positive. When we walked in the music was really loud and they offered to turn it down. Secondly, the food was pretty good. We had Reuben egg rolls, the BELT, Reuben sandwich, shepherds pie and the fish n chips. No complaints on the food and our... More

This was fun and low key. I was disappointed to find out that they had a limited menu. I had actually made a call a few days prior to find out when they would open and begin serving food, they told me the hours but forgot to tell me that the menu would be limited to 3 choices. It was... More

Having had our fill of BBQ for a bit, we stopped in to the Brass Door for dinner. Service was prompt and attentive, and the food quite good. It was very quiet for a Saturday night. Amongst us, we had the Irish stew, fish and chips and a grilled cheese sandwich. We were all quite satisfied.

We stopped by Brass Door on a rainy night for the Tuesday 2 for 1 fish n chips. We were promptly greeted by Kelly and shown to our table. She immediately took our drink orders, including a delicious Strongbow cider and a cold Stella, and told us about the special. All 4 of us were craving crispy fish n chips... More

This converted bank makes a good setting for an atypical gathering spot in Memphis. Patrons at the bar watch soccer, rugby and other sports, the burgers are hand patted, served with "chips". The upper level offered some separation for some diners.

This is one of my favorite places in the city. As a soccer fan, you can't find a better atmosphere for watching a game. The staff is very friendly and the food is great. If you're looking for a recommendation on a most eat in Memphis this is it (other than BBQ). Try their fish and chips with their house... More
