The Kitchen is an American bistro with locally sourced food and striking lakeside views in the new eco-friendly Event Center, open seven days a week.

The menu will offer simple, seasonal dishes that feature fresh ingredients sourced from the community of farmers, ranchers and purveyors located in and around the Memphis area. We believe that gathering around the table and sharing good food and drink is what connects us as family, friends and a community.

Legitimately the best scallops we’ve ever had, and the service was exemplary. Can’t recommend strongly enough.

The Kirchen is closing 12/30/18. Lease is up and somebody decided not to renew it. I’m planning to go 3 or 4 more times. This is a great restaurant. Great food, great atmosphere, great value, great service. Very unfortunate that it will close. We’re planning on going three or four more times before the end of the year

I hate that The Kitchen is closing in Shelby Farms. The service and food was always exceptional, and the view added to the entire experience. I sure hope a hamburger or barbecue joint isn't going to be the replacement! This venue screams something special.

It was a surprise 19 year anniversary for my wife. I was allowed to bring flowers and wine in early to set up the table for the night. When my wife arrived she was greeted by the warm staff with congrats and a personal card they had for our occasion. Our kind servers we can't say much more then professional and hope to have them again. Thanks for helping make our 19th a memorable one.

This is the 4th time we have had family in town and eaten there. Outstanding - the only problem is this is the second time one of us did not get something we ordered until we pointed the omission out to the waitress. 2 out of 4 is not good.

We were left waiting at the hostess station for 10 minutes, then when seated, the waitress didn't know we were there and we waited another 20 minutes till I went and found her.

My salad was not as described, and over-dressed. The mussels were big, juicy and tender, but the broth had too much cream (hey, any cream is too much in mussels). My husband's steak was tough and over-spice-rubbed.

We had patio reservations and even though there was rain that evening the view was quite nice even without the sunset I had anticipated when establishing our plans online. I took advantage of reviewing the menu on the website to have an idea of what I would want to order beforehand and wasn't disappointed at all. The staff was tremendously enthusiastic and knowledgeable. This was my first visit and I was pleased.
