We choose from only the finest USDA-Certified Aged Steaks available. Always at it's prime is not just our brand, it's how we try to live our lives as restaurateurs. We have built a concept in which high standards permeate all aspects of our restaurant. We are passionate about great tasting food and the pleasure of sharing it with others. Our menu items are prepared with organically grown produce from our very own Cherry Blend Farms in Holly Springs, Mississippi.

“Tasteful steaks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014

Having just arrived in Memphis we asked the receptionist for a nice steakhouse. Mesquite was in walking distance from our hotel.
Nice atmosphere, friendly staff.
We each had a steak, which was well cooked.monly, it was too large for me to eat.
The air condition was too cold. The waiter turned it up, as I told him, i was cold.

“Hockey Puck”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

if your looking for a filet that resembles size and taste of a hockey puck look no further!

The restaurant is in prime location in downtown memphis but the meat was anything but. What used to be a fun bar with good bar food is now a very overpriced "steak house", insult to real steak houses.

do yourself a favor and pass on this place and get a better steak at a Mexican restaurant.

“Worst tip I have left in 30 years!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014

Service was horrible; however the waiter was pleasant, just incompetent. So much to share. Oil and vinegar top removed before bread was delivered. Out one my first two wine selections of a limited list. Silverware was not there when steaks arrived and waiter was oblivious. The ribeye was definitely not a ribeye - sirloin likely. The expensive sides ($7 to 9) were not appealing. 3 of the 4 of us ordered the creme brûlée only to be told there was only 1. Then ordered carrot cake and said there was none. A couple of amateur musicians were playing poorly and loudly in the background making conversation difficult. It is hard to provide food or service to me that is so poor that I leave less than 15% and will normally leave over 20%. I left $20 on a $363 bill - yes it was this much for a party of 4. I am told this is normally a very nice establishment but at 7 pm this past Thursday it was anything but that.
