It was a lot of fun but the restaurant is REALLY loud.
Wedding Anniversary. Server was excellent and the food was outstanding. Will be going back for sure.
Great stop before the Hamilton show. Warm & friendly staff, chilled & savory cocktails made for a very cool evening!
Nice environment. Waiter recommended the Mr Crispy which was very fatty and not enjoyable. Quiche with jalapeño was very good.
The food and cocktails are amazing, great atmosphere (even though I felt too old and not quite cool enough to be there) and wildly friendly and attentive staff. You would be doing yourself a great disservice by not ordering the “Safe Word” cocktail (or four of them, or whatever)
We were there before a show, and they got us in and out in a very timely manner. Our server was very attentive and he had gorgeous smile. But the place is VERY loud. We were screaming across the table. Okay so we ordered Mac n Chz, egg rolls, pimento chz, and hamburger. The skillet Mac n chz looked like hamburger helper if I can be frank. The presentation and the noodles floating in what looked like white queso with Cajun seasoning was a turn off immediately especially when you take in consideration the cost of it all. The hamburger was nice but it came out on a wood plank way too small for the size of the burger and fries. A mess was impossible to avoid. The egg rolls needed more slaw and less meat. It was good but it definitely could have been better. The pimento chz was on point, I could have eaten a lb. of it. Great concept poor execution. And the manager/host very loud when engaging with customers. When I spend that kind of money on a meal part of that cost is to support the ambiance. I didn’t feel that.
Great brunch for me and my granddaughter before heading over to the Orpheum. The table was ready with a "reserved" sign on it; the service was quick, friendly, and efficient. I had checked "special occasion" on the reservation request since it seemed the most accurate. They brought champagne for a toast and my granddaughter (who is only 16) politely declined. We all had a bit of a laugh and chatted for a bit. The "Mister Crispy" and "Crabcake Benedict" were both delightful; fresh and well prepared. We will be back.
Brad is the best bartender ever! Great place to bring great friends.
Excellent food and service!
Fun atmosphere, good food, and amazing drinks! Can’t wait to come back!
I was greeted by Cady (sp?) who was absolutely attentive and made me feel welcome. I got a great bourbon recommendation and tried an award winning drink!! When back in Memphis, this will be my first stop!!
We arrived on time for our reservation and the restaurant was closed.
Food was very good and reasonably priced. Good choice of cocktails that were great too.
Would have been nice to have some gluten free and dairy free items
We made a reservation but were told to seat ourselves. My husband had the steak and it was cold and a strange texture. I had the duck and it was cold as well. We were very disappointed because this was an anniversary dinner. We typically love the restaurants on south main. This is an exception. It is very overpriced for the limited menus and cold food.
Amazing, simple menu with great flavor. Attentive staff - they recommended we try their homemade tonic with Vodka that was amazing. Food was amazing and environment was perfect. Great vibe. Even better ownership. Will definitely make this place a regular date night location.
My favorite Memphis restaurant. Wait staff is so helpful and always makes great recommendations. We had Philly cheesesteak egg rolls and beef stroganoff that sounds pretty pedestrian but may have been one of the top three meals I’ve ever had. They have perfected taking everyday meals and elevating them. Highly recommend and make sure you enjoy a Bees Knees while you are there.
Server was very nice but not very informed on the menu.
Our reservation for a party of 9 was ready and waiting. Lovely atmosphere, great drinks, and creative food offerings. We had adults in our party of all generations who enjoyed the evening tremendously.
The food is terrible, we ordered severed several items that were sent of the kitchen cold, poorly seasoned or just had a bad taste. The restaurant is cute however I will not be back.
The drinks were top notch, and we had a very energetic, attentive server Travis. The food was just the right amount. Would recommend and will go back!
The food was delicious and the drinks.....guys it was the best old fashioned I've had in a long time! Also to try: the Bee's Knees.... outstanding cocktail, very fresh flavors with local honey. We had the Duck Confit bruschetta appetizer, entrees were MS Pot Roast and Chicken/Dumplings followed by Pecan Pie for dessert. All truth that could be my 'last meal' on death row and I would die happy😊 Outstanding options and our server was amazing. Entree options do change frequently, but the Pot Roast is a staple.
This is my new favorite restaurant. Great food, great service, great cocktails with low key atmosphere.
It was great. Sat on patio in front. Our waitress Katie was fabulous. Will definitely be back. Food excellent
Great Easter brunch spot!
Neat place with friendly staff, but the food was awful. We were really disappointed.
Great service by Taylor including menu selections and letting us know why the Bloody Marys were going to be a little delayed. Cool environment and unique menu options. We will be back!
Great menu options that are somewhat unique, like chicken spaghetti, especially to a non-franchise restaurant.
Service was pretty terrible. They were busy, not unexpected for a Friday night. Understaffed is an understatement. The cocktails were super delicious. Cheese plate was decent. Very cool vibe
This place was awesome!!! There was a private party that was running a little behind. The host of the party was very accommodating and the staff at the restaurant were stellar!! Food and ambiance were great!! Thanks Pontotoc!
My dinner companions enjoyed their meals, but my New York strip steak was very delayed and very chewy with fat and sinews. The restaurant filled with smoke from the kitchen presumably.
Food was wonderful especially scallops.
Cool ambiance and delicious food! Menu isn't large but each dish is delicious.
Great meal! Delicious Southern comfort food!
Horrible experience menu change and they don’t inform people waitress didn’t seem to care at all food was nasty
Jay Bell, Joanna, and Cady rule!
Party party party! brunch brunch brunch!
We had a wonderful dining experience. Taylor our server was absolutely the best! He explained the menu was very attentive! We will definitely go back. The food was amazing! We wanl
From the moment we arrived we were treated above and beyond, the server was on spot! The food was perfectly portioned and delicious! We left full but not stuffed! Drinks were great and we loved how the place was jumping, although it was a little loud it was fun and it fit the atmosphere. Highly recommend Cafe Pontotoc!
Great atmosphere, great vibe. Everything I ate and drank was delicious. The specials of the night were so good, but I have to come back and have the Pot Roast.
