My wife ordered chicken, eggs, and waffle. the eggs were overcooked and the waffle tasted like leather. The chicken was basically a little better than a "mcnugget". Not much for $16. I had a "duck", which was a small leg (tasted good), and piece of...More

Very cute restaurant. The menu wasn't up to date so I couldn't get either of my first two choices but the beet salad is spectacular.

The concept was cute and the beauty sinks in the bar and the old type hair dryer chairs were a nice touch. But the food lacked terribly. The menu is extremely limited, the portions skimpy, and you can leave not feeling like you had a...More

Brunch here was simply amazing. I would suggest that you arrive early for brunch because the restaurant fills up pretty quickly. The food was served hot and fresh. Our waitress was attentive. I couldn't ask for better food or service.

Wife's hamsteak was tough, overcooked and leathery, they tried to fix by bringing gravy, that would not have helped. They did take half off her overpriced meal. She had bread with an off flavor, hard to describe, the strawberry butter had little strawberry taste. I...More

There is a lot to enjoy at the beauty shop. Communal table seating, trendy crowd, decor, and interesting vegetables. The food was good, especially the grilled romaine salad. Some of the dishes were less than stellar, but everything was good.

Established in 2002. "Look Good. Eat Good." are the words emblazoned on the front windows at the Beauty Shop. This hip and trendy restaurant in the Cooper-Young district of midtown Memphis does both, as it conjures up images of a '50s-style beauty shop, formerly Priscilla Presley's curl-and-dye spot. It's a camp wonderland where the façade is Jetsons-era Vitrolite, and choice seating is offered beneath hooded Belvedere hair dryers. Nostalgia is served with a sense of humor here. The beauty shop flashback comes complete with original mint green wash basins filling in as sinks behind the hand built bar, made of tiger maple wood. The terrazzo floor is original. Glass brick stalls serve as intimate booths. Mixed with the retro renderings are modern touches such as hand-blown art-glass lights, and glamorous copper and silver-leaf walls. At this offbeat restaurant, the décor pays homage to the space's beauty parlor past, while the food offers flavors from around the globe.
