“Sweet Potato Pancakes - Awesome!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We loved the old decor and worn tables. It was obvious that the locals love it too. We went for breakfast on a recommendation to try the potato pancakes and they were great!

“One fine breakfast”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

While there was a long line for a table, we were able to grab a spot at the counter rather quickly. Breakfast was fat, awesome and reasonably priced. Service is outstanding.

“Cool looking place. Horrible food.”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

My husband and I went here for breakfast. He is from Memphis and I went to school here and we have strong ties here and much memphis pride. We both were so disappointed The biscuits were terrible; the pancakes were dry, Luke warm and uncooked; the country ham was not good; the hash browns were so burned u had to cut with a knife; and the eggs were okay. The gravy was packaged gravy but was the best part of the meal. When i asked for grits instead of hashbrowns the waitess brought them but never addressed how awful the food looked which was the most disappointing at all. The cook, the waitress, and a food runner all looked at our plates and could have cared less. No quality control at all. I have never weitten a bad review but between the horrible service, bad food, and $27.00 tab, I had to. Dennys downtown is much much better. Go here for coffee and experience but eat somewhere else.

“Turn back time”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

The Arcade restaurant, the oldest in Memphis started in 1919, but it is stuck in the remodel they did in the 50's; and thank you very much for that. we are talking diner style, with booths and tables offering classics such as burgers, and liver and onions but also featuring more modern treats. I had an artichoke, goat cheese, sun dried tomato and pepper sandwich. Hubby had the liver and onions which were 2 huge pieces of liver, smothered in onions and gravy, 2 sides and a small bread pudding. The staff are super friendly and really enjoy their job. Fun spot.
