We always get the catfish and always love it. The famous cake wasn’t super amazing but it was good. We always go back to Westy’s when we are around downtown. It’s like a hidden Memphis gem.

What a sweet sweet place ❤️. We stopped in on our way out of TN and were greeted by the sweetest staff. We ate around 4pm so there was no crowd. Our waitresses name was Jackie and she was so cute! She recommended her favorite...dishes and helped us decide what to order. She kept our table clean & drinks full. She recommended we try the fudge pie.. we said we were too full and she brought one out anyways. I’m so glad she did! It was delicious!!!! Don’t let the outside fool you... it’s definitely a hole in the wall type place but so worth the trip! Ask for Jackie!!!!More

which do you want first, the good or the bad? The good, my fries were hot and crispy and I liked the toasted buns. End of list. The bad: neither the fries or tots were salted, hamburgers were greasy (not guilty pleasure greasy, but nasty...squeeze our burgers in napkins greasy), gumbo basically just tasted like celery, waitress didn’t feel like she had to write our order down and got it wrong, then forgot to not charge us for the correct burger. They’re really stingy with the condiments. Stuffed burgers barely had anything in them and were flavorless. And their “world famous” hot fudge dessert? It’s a brownie. Never returningMore

We loved this place and ate there both nights we were in Memphis. It was only a 5 minute walk from Crowne Plaza hotel. Staff were great and lots of locals in which is always a good sign. The food was good and very reasonable...but if you are looking for somewhere 'posh' this place isn't for you.More

Really gone downhill. Health inspector might want to visit. When we first came here a year or two ago, we loved it and gave it 4-5 stars. Much has changed, though I don’t know why. Our last visit ten months ago - restaurant was crowded,...food was so-so at best, service was awful, and wait time was more than an hour for any food. We were told that it was because a cook stormed out and quit. Well, that might say something. Flash forward to this month, hoping last visit was an anomaly. Restaurant was nearly empty. Food took about an hour still and was extremely bland. Of course, it didn’t help that napkin wrapping one set of utensils had several spots of blood on it. Seriously! Should have just left then. Restroom is a pit. Server told us food was nearly ready but didn’t come out for another twenty minutes. Bacon was burnt. Rice was undercooked. Then, I check reviews and read about rats. We didn’t see any but at this point, I wasn’t trying to see any. Just give me my food so I can choke it down and leave, hoping I don’t get sick later. The place has a dive bar feel anyway but was a cool, trendy eatery too. Now, unless you are there for a beer and bring your own mug, go elsewhere. Nothing about this place remotely suggests they care about their patrons and the food, service, and sanitation would be enough for me to eat anywhere else. Be warned if you go.More

THEY HAVE RATS!! I had already ordered my food to go and paid but hadn’t left yet when a huge rat ran all the way from the back to the front of the restaurant! It went under the seat of a booth and someone was...sitting on the other side of the seating. We yelled for them to come over and they didn’t seem surprised at all. The lady explained they’re by the waterfront and the building is old so they get them all the time. — Like it was no big deal to have a huge a$$ rat in a restaurant! They didn’t even tell the couple sitting in the connected booth that they may want to move. I’m appalled and disgusted.More

My family ate at this restaurant several times during the 90's and we were so eager to revisit it with my sister-in-law. The location seems fine. I saw where others had commented on it, but it seemed perfectly safe. We visited on a Saturday afternoon....They were not busy. Food was just ok. Sister-in-law's chicken strips were undercooked. They didn't charge us for it. Service was very slow. Everyone else got the famous pie (I'm gluten intoletant.) and said it was ok. The entire wild rice section is gluten free, which is nice.More

We really enjoyed our evening at Westy's it proved to be a memorable night. The menu was excellent, great ribs and local cuisine on offer. The watress was a real character and offered us some good advice on our choices. The decor was rustic and...atmospheric and we noted that even though it was a mid week, the place was full. Loved the range from the bar as well, as we tried several of the local beers. Do not be put off by the location we felt totally safe.More

Great bar and restaurant that is hidden in a distressed section of down town. Extensive menu of fast food sides and entrees. Great burgers, gumbo and jambalaya. Large fresh salad with dinners. We were there on a Sunday night and it was busy but not...crowded from 6 to 8. Katy is a great bartender and kept her cool when power failedMore
