We visited in February and the service was superb - we met one of the owners who introduced himself and seemed genuinely interested in where we were from etc. Only live music on some days so pick your days to get the best out of this great place - lots of character and great blues memorabilia.

Fun place to visit. We had some good old Southern food, fried green tomatoes and catfish po-boys. Very casual place. If it's your first visit you can pick a spot on the wall and autograph it.

We popped in for lunch and were amazed at what a dive it is, but the staff are very friendly and the food is good. We had the BBQ nachos, which were enjoyable. I've never seen so much graffiti in one place. Definitely worth a look.

We were there for the Sunflower River Gospel and Blues festival this year. On the Saturday of the event we were enjoying the music and decided to walk over and try the place. Honestly we went because Morgan Freeman is the owner. The decor is just what one would expect for a blues joint. There was a band playing and it was hard to converse but what would you expect, it's a blues club. Tones of "atmosphere"! The waitress was just wonderful and funny. We both tried the catfish and were blown away. I have had catfish from all over and just like any "good ol' boy" am somewhat of an expert, or at least I think I am. They were busy as all get out due to the festival going on but nothing suffered. We both agreed that this was hands down the best catfish we have ever had. We plan to come back again. I don't know how everything else on the menu is and don't know if I will ever know because I can't see going there and not getting that fish. It was so good that we actually tipped the folks in the kitchen. Clarksdale is a great place with an amazing history and Ground Zero is a must if you are in the area.

Managed to make it to Ground Zero in Clarksdale over Christmas and have to say what an experience. Although we did get there too early to listen to any live music, the atmosphere, food and drink made up for that. When you arrive you find yourself looking at a seemingly rundown building with junk on the porch. Upon closer examination the couches and smokers are props and part of the ambience and charm of the place.

Walking in and looking around will take your breath away. Every square inch of the place is written on with well wishes from people all over. This was one stop on our foodie tour we only recharged with a couple of ice cold pints or beer and had the tamales which by the way were excellent.

Wished we could have stayed for some live music and the next time we find ourselves out that way we definitely will.
