Worst service on Beale Street. Server couldn’t keep five drinks straight, took forever to bring them, and overcharged us. To top it off, they added an unauthorized charge to our card and refused to fix the issue. Awful. Plain awful. With so many excellent establishments...More

Piano player was doing his best to imitate Jerry Lee. He did a good job and visited with the crowd during breaks. Fun place to have a few cocktails. Didn't try the food.

Jerry Lee Lewis’s Cafe & Honky Tonk is, of course, a main attraction for Beale Street Tourists. The Live Music Room is Rockin’ & Rollin’ with bands that have a lead piano player who knocks it out of the park! Fred Norman is sensational! &...More

Jerry Lee Lewis’ Cafe & Honky Tonk is located on World Famous Beale Street in the heart of downtown Memphis. It's walking distance from the Fedex Forum, making it the prime location to stop and eat before the big game or concert. We open early and stay open late, catering to both party animals and night owls alike.
