food was really good, in particular the General Tsao's Cauliflower is a must. The steak and mac was also big hit.

We enjoy this small restaurant before attending the afternoon show at the Orpheum. It’s within walking distance and the food and service are always good. Better get reservations it is very small and has limited seating and no one is in a hurry. So check it out and enjoy the experience

Excellent spot in the heart of downtown. Happy hour prices before 6pm were great. Service was great and food came out quickly. We’ll definitely be back and will bring friends that visit from out of town.

We got there early, so we beat the crowd that started coming in before we finished eating. Our server was great. Our food was excellent. The popcorn they bring you while waiting for your order is to die for!!! Would definitely recommend!

Good food and great atmosphere. Need to make reservation to make sure you have a table to enjoy this amazing local art district pub in the south Beale art district of Memphis.

South of Beale is always one of my first choices when dining out in downtown Memphis. The food is superb and the cocktails are unique. Can't go wrong with the Shrimp and Grits or the Salmon with Maple Glazed Brussels Sprouts.

The food was amazing, and I love that everything that is GF and vegan is labeled as such.

The four of us got the steak and mac. My husband's steak was a little overdone. Mine was perfect. We all enjoyed our meal. We will go back. Loved the looks of the shrimp and grits at the table next to me!

We ate a wide variety of menu items as a party of four and everything was perfect—pork bao, duck fried rice, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, peach salad with salmon, steak with Gouda Mac, burger, etc. Great happy hour too. SOB never disappoints!

South of Beale had very good food! Unfortunately, a very aloof waitress serving us. We would recommend the food especially the TSO cauliflower, peach salad and Zaka bowl. We checked in on yelp to get the 10% off and they took 5% off. We ordered a wine and a cocktail and the wine was delivered but not the cocktail. We had to ask for a plates to go with the appetizers.

The duck fried rice is delicious and a large portion! Disappointed the lamb kabobs were sold out as we were there at 7pm. Awfully early to be out of a dish !

Dinner was outstanding as usual!! The General Tso’s Cauliflower is one of our favs and it was delish! Also had the Burrata & Heirloom Tomato that was out of this world and we shared the always yummy Cheeseburger & Fries! I did miss the Chicken & Waffles that has been on the menu forever. If it ever comes back please let us know and we will be making a trip back to Memphis!!

The food is excellent - quite fresh and prepared to order. I love the salmon with maple glazed brussels sprouts. The atmosphere is usually vibrant, but this particular Saturday at 6pm, it was dead there. Our server was attentive and friendly.
