This is an authentic Irish bar. The food, service and atmosphere are great. The food portions are large enough to share and reasonably priced.

Having been to Ireland, didn't need to try Irish dishes but had the goat cheese appetizer, crab soup and creme brûlée. All were excellent. Owner did a good job converting this from the tobacco store it was to a pub atmosphere. Service excellent. Would come back.

Irish New Yorkers are a tough audience to please but we were delighted with the ambiance, the service and the food of this local Irish pub. Our appetizers of goat cheese fritters were outstanding and could have been my dinner. I had the marinated chicken sandwich on sour dough bread with Guinness mayonnaise and OMG! Out of this world. Bill came to only $54 with 2 drinks each. Fabulous!! It's a little off the beaten path which makes it even more appealing. Looking forward to a return visit.

This was our second time to come for weekend brunch - You can't get better service. The irish breakfast is different, but worth trying. Excellent. The bloody mary was good, needed extra kick and the bartender was very gracious to kick it up a notch.

My wife and I are locals. The Brass Door is our neighborhood pub. The people are friendly, the food very good, the decor remarkable, and the feel to this place is as good as any Irish pub you will find in Chicago or New York. The owners have done a wonderful job in bringing to life the essense of what a friendly, local pub should be. So if you are just visiting Memphis for a short time, pop into The Brass Door. Say hello to the owner Seamus, and before you finish your first pint of Harp, you will be a local too.
