We went there the first time to hear some blues and found the acoustics pretty good for a restaurant/bar/ with live music and no cover! What we found was awesome music and great fair priced food and drinks. Went there 3 times in one week because if it ain't broke don't fix it! Never were disappointed all the music was different but excellent
The ribs were very tender, but not smokey like I like them. My husband had the shrimp and they were very good. It's a fun atmosphere right on Biehl Street in Memphis.
We reserved for 6 but more showed. No problem, more chairs. Very friendly service and food was great.
This place was hopping but then again there were 25,000 ISU fans in town for the liberty bowl. We were seated promptly, had great service and excellent food.
In town for St Jude marathon. From the moment we walked in, I knew we had made a great choice. Best ribs that I’ve ever had, wonderful catfish fillet, and honestly the best baked beans I have ever had! Our waiter, Matt, was awesome. All around, a great experience.
Great food. Great service. Great entertainment. The Brad Birkedahl Band was amazing!!
The "special" was a strip steak. The steak I received was not a strip, was pre sliced, had a lot of gristle...just poor quality . The appetizer was initially overlooked, but was good when it did arrive. The dessert service was very late (I15+min.) after the main was cleared. The staff did their best but were undermanned. There is no excuse for offering the inferior steak that was served. This place was once known for their steaks. I would have appreciated it more if I'd been told that the meat served would be a substitute, so I could decide to try it or not. This may satisfy our tourists, but I have too many better places to go and will do so.
The music was great. The food was just ok. But serving the wine in cheap plastic water glasses like you see in motel 6 is totally unacceptable. That was a deal breaker and we won't be back. It was so embarrassing to have brought a friend and business associate with us. Very disappointing!
Surprised no music in a Beale Street joint. Great BBQ
The place is the best to listen the real american music. Good food and drinks, the best Memphis players. I'll be back, for sure !
Terrible treatment. I had a reservation in the saloon with live music, and they said I couldn't´t be accommodated because they had a group of 40. Not my problem. Then, why did I make a reservation? It´s nonsense. Never more!!!
Food was Amazing!!!! Loved everything and we'll definitely visit again!
Food is fantastic. Live music in the secondary room. We were there for Elvis Week and sat under the pink Cadillac w Elvis pix everywhere.
It was great. I had ribs and a cup of seafood gumbo based on user reviews and was not disappointed. My wife had chicken tenders and they, well were chicken tenders but nothing special which is why I gave 4 stars on food. That in no way should take away from their specialties. The place had a great diverse ethnicity mix does not allow smoking and kids can go. The nightly music was Earl the Pearl who played and sang the blues. It was a great all round experience.
This was a great place. Truly enjoyed the band. The food was awesome. Our waitress London was the best. A fabulous evening in Memphis!
The. Best. Ribs in Memphis: hands down! Get the special that has ribs, catfish, cole slaw...the works. We now try to go every year just for the food and we live in Kentucky! The band that played was awesome too.
Met out-of-town friends for a "Memphis Meal" before a Redbirds game...their first exposure to Memphis ribs. Was a good meal and perfect location for a pre-game bite. Portions were huge, food was hot and tasty, beer was cold and service was great!
We loved Blues city cafe! We were there 3xs in 3 nights. We actually left our reservation across the street our last night after appetizers so that we could catch our gumbo and pecan pie and music again. We found our happy place!!!
Great food, great music, great local beers!! What more could you want? Favorite place to eat when we are in Memphis.
Great place to eat on Beale, then just walk through the inside passage to teh room with all the blues music...great!
