Chef/ Restaurateur- Karen B. Carrier famed for -The Mollie Fontaine Lounge, Do Sushi, Another Roadside Attraction Catering opened Beauty Shop Restaurant in what was once said to be Priscilla Presley's curl-and-dye spot. It's a camp wonderland where the facade is Jetsons-era Vitrolite, a bar replaces the wash sinks, and choice seating is offered beneath hooded Belvedere hair dryers. Carrier is a mad genius of sorts. The restaurant's motto is "Look Good, Eat Good," and while the place makes you want to look good, you will eat good at The Beauty Shop. The menu is widely varied ~ a down -home American stance with world-beat tints and edges. The Beauty Shop is about the coolest, hippest restaurant around. It screams "Memphis", yet does so with ingenuity and originality; it plays a wacky theme to the limit but doesn't stream beyond the pale- It makes you feel good to be there,part of the fun; part of the animated crowd and leaves you well-fed to boot. What could be cooler that that?

Unfortunately it is going downhill. Used to serve the best truffle fries in town but now a soggy shadow of their former glory.. the duck was good but overcooked and for some reason all the food was glued to the plate with an unappetizing paste. Prices up quality down. I doubt I'll return. Sad

Slightly disappointed in the food quality. I expected better. My vegetables tasted canned. My daughter’s chicken was burn and the crust was missing. The waffle was over cooked and her gravy was cold. But the atmosphere was very cool. The waitress was looking around the room instead of making eye contact when we were speaking.

Took my department to lunch there for a Big Thank You. For that purpose it was great. Unique and fun but our food was just OK. I got a starter Cheese, Fruit & Nut plate for the table. It just looked sad and dinky. It might have been presentation more than quantity. The grill cheese with bacon and tomoto had such small pieces of both that you could see them from the outside of the sandwich. Not what I was expecting.

The Beauty Shop continues to disappoint. The waitress never smiled nor did she welcome questions. The ambiance was fine and the booth comfortable. The food was less than tasty. The gala lax was salty, the breakfast nachos were, as my husband said, tasted like egg pored over nachos with out spice or taste. The coffee was bland and they had stevia (awful tasting) and sugar. No equal, Splenda or sweet and low. Take it or leave it was the attitude about everything.

Great food with various interesting options. The brunch bloody Mary was delicious. The major disappointment was with the reservations. We were seated a little late which wasn't a big deal, but I was very surprised that we were sat outside on a bearable but cool morning despite making reservations. We weren't asked about preferences or told that was the only option before we came. I felt we should have at least been asked given the temperature of the morning. I would've kept my reservation, but planned ahead to wear warmer clothes. That was just disappointing to sit through the meal cold given that we had made reservations.

The staff was friendly and attentive, however, seating for two was quite uncomfortable. So, I was seated at one of the hair dryer chairs with arm rests, my guest in a plain wooden chair. I was very uncomfortable and the seat was not level with the small table. Oh, I’m 5’9, 32 waist, 170 lbs btw. Food was great, service was terrific, but seating comfort level feel short. I asked for booth seating & was informed parties of two were assigned to the hair dryers and parties of 3+ were eligible for booth seating. It didn’t matter because everything was booked.

The food was awesome!! My seat was sunken (under the dryer)- I sat on my coat waddled up;) The hostess was not the friendliest- maybe just for that night.
Overall, we enjoyed our evening and will recommend this restaurant to anyone. Compliments to the chefs !

Always a fun place with good food. For the first time ever my Thai Cobb Salad was not good. Heavy on the
Jerky with tough, grisly duck and 2 hard pieces of mango. Water glass was not clean & had to be replaced.
Pleasant, attentive waitress.

Did not get a table. Even with a reservation, waited 30 mins and gave up. The restaurant is great. They should not take reservations because they can't honor them. Hate to slam a great restaurant but they need to start thinking and managing the business.

I got the pork loin tortilla for $10, don’t do it
Dry and boring, could use a fruit salsa or something
Looked like something you get from the grocery store freezer when sitting on my plate
After I left I checked the online menu and realized the kitchen did not put on the queso fresco cheese and server did not notice that when bringing the meal
Disappointing and thoughtless

The Beauty Shop was a high energy dining experience with fun, kitschy decor. The menu was interesting with good variety and there was a good cocktail list. Not sure if it was due to Sunday brunch business, but my food was over cooked and another of my party got cold food. It was cheerfully replaced with hot food. The wait staff was friendly.
