Contemporary American
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?

Food was wonderful. Everyone enjoyed it and we could actually talk. We had a party of 8 and it's usually difficult to carry on a conversation, but we had a quiet table in the back. Hostess and server were very nice.

We came here for one of our honeymoon dinners - it was amazing! Stevan made awesome recommendations and Kristin could not have been a better server. They both made our special occasion an experience to remember. The food was epic; high quality, amazing pairings, great portions and we would have paid double without a second thought.... I want to bathe in that succotash!!!

Thank you for a great evening! We will be back!!!!

I forget the servers name but I wish I had asked her again because she was so nice and friendly. The host was not so much and we almost left because they told us “someone at your table is still there” although there were 6 open tables she could have switched us to and then was told it was because we only had 4 people yet the table we sat at was for 4 so that made literally no sense. but the server was great and so was the food.

The food and drinks were AMAZING. Service was great, too. My only complaint was the bathroom. They have all the tissue rolls out in the open where people can touch any of them and not covered and locked into a container like most public restrooms. Also, there were no automatic soap dispensers, just regular home soap that can be easily opened and tampered with. Otherwise, I'd definitely come back for the food and maybe avoid the bathroom next time.

The food was excellent and we loved the decor. The service was good but a little rushed at the end, but I suspect that it was due to the fact that they were closing for lunch and preparing for dinner.

Only one entree of six was slightly off (ribeye was a bit tough) everything was excellent with the wings & watermelon starter being outstanding. Kudos to our server who was professional, knowledgeable and attentive at all times even during the prime dinner rush (we spent 3 hours there). Would go back again and again and again.

Went for brunch on a Sunday, while the food was delicious, it was very small portions. I feel for the price the amount of food you are given isn’t enough. The atmosphere is cool and service was great.

It was the cutest place but the food was minimal. We had a fruit and cheese plate with 3 apple slices and a few olives. My salad was big but then my entree had only a few bites of duck on it. It was very good but I was still pretty hungry even after I had an appetizer, salad, entree and dessert.

I have a ton of food allergies and they were truly excellent at handling them. I included the list in my reservation and when I got to the restaurant the chef and our waitress had already gone through the menu and written down what I could eat and what they could augment to give me more options. I’ve never had a restaurant do that. We had a great time and the restaurant was so cute and charming. The food was really good. So glad we went there!

We were wrapping up dinner and we had not stayed late. I’ve never had a restaurant basically ask us to wrap it up and leave bc they had people waiting for our table. That I didn’t appreciate as we were visiting with friends and would have ordered more drinks etc

Beauty Shop is cute for a get-to-together with friends. Definitely insta worthy as far as the aesthetics. Convenient location and good service. The drinks weren't very strong and the food was kind of bland, but it was fresh and the portions were decent for the price.

It had been some time since we had been to The Beauty Shop, but we were reminded of why it continues to be a local favorite. Pretty safe to say they have the best brunch in Memphis. I thoroughly enjoyed my crispy duck benedict, and my wife loved the house cured salmon special (a take on eggs benedict & lox).
