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?

We have several friends that have eaten here and recommended going. This was our first time to go to The Beauty Shop! I got seated at Priscilla's (Presley) hair dryer which still works so that was pretty cool!! Our waitress was very nice and attentive. It was super busy as it was Mother's Day but everything went smoothly and everyone was very nice. We look forward to going again soon.

One of my very favorite restaurants in Memphis with excellent Bloody Marys!! Their brunch is amazing and always packed so make a reservation in advance. I prefer the brunch and dinner menus over the lunch selections. Their fish selections are excellent, salads are unique and very fresh, pasta dish specials are always tasty!! It's a fun and funky vibe with nice roomy booths for good conversation, the table seating would be more for people watching and seeing everyone in the restaurant. Their milkshakes and crepes are unique and delish!! A definite gem in the Memphis midtown scene!

The poached eggs were hard boiled and the server never came by to check on the order. We had to go find her and while they offered to recook we decided to change to French toast, just because we did not have confidence that the eggs would be cooked properly. French toast was no longer available so we settled for banana pancakes, which were good.

The server did her best to make it right but I doubt that we will be back.

They really try hard here, mostly. The Beauty Shop hands down is the best Sunday brunch you'll find in Mid-town and perhaps all of the Memphis area. I've been coming here a lot. It is very popular so make reservations in advance.

Was so excited to try this spot and although the ambiance was adorable, the food was only ok. The pastrami reuban was boring and not great. The thai salad had very little duck and not exciting. The server never came out to check on us...would not run here with all of memphis' other dining options.

Overall it was a pleasant experience! There was a wait when we arrived but we got right in thanks to the reservations we made through Open Table. This was our first time at the Beauty Shop. The ambiance was nice complete with hair dryers! The food was really good! Both the chicken & waffles and shrimp & grits were excellent! I look forward to going back. There were other things on the menu is like to try!

Great atmosphere, food choices unique, interesting, and absolutely delicious! I had the warm farm salad and I could have eaten about five of those and rolled out the door utterly happy. I would drive back to Memphis just for that. Love this place!

For the purposes of this meal it was on point. Menu options are great. Service is excellent. Ambiance is just right. Not too loud or quiet. Got a nice retro feel yet modernized. I would come back again. Big sweets guy. So the desert options are important to me. The gelato options are really different, makes you want to try multiple options. So order the 3 scoops.

I was so excited to come here after seeing the reviews. It was good, but not stellar. And for the prices I would like stellar. The guac is really tasty, the scallops and shrimp are good, but again, it didn't blow me away. If it had cost $15, I would have been thrilled. My friend got the honey crisp apple salad and the calamari, both of which just needed something else to put them over the edge. The beautini martini had no taste of pineapple, but instead tasted like sucking on a vanilla bean. The strawberry cake was really, really good. Figures, as it was not made IN the restaurant. Service is beyond slow, so don't go if you're in a hurry.

Service was fantastic! Seems there were new waitresses but they were paired with experienced ones. Everyone welcoming! Food....ahhhh! We all tried something different...only complaint was we all wanted to try each others meals and no one wanted to share! I had the chicken and waffles....I had always been reluctant to try a piece of fried chicken and a waffle...now my question is why? They are perfect together!

Hidden gem, people should be lining up to dine here. Branzino was crispy outside and moist and tender inside. Drinks were great and the red velvet cake was to die for. If you make a trip to Memphis this needs to be a stop for dinner.

Absolutely loved this historic experience. The shampoo stations, mirrors, lighting , not to mention the eclectic menu, full of southern favs. I loved my biscuits and gravy and the chicken and waffles were excellent. The highlight was the broiled grapefruit! I would go back tomorrow if I could.

This restaurant is probably good for a ladies lunch, but I brought my kids and it wasn’t that kid friendly. My son got the pasta and it was hard, but he enjoyed the sauce. I had to order an adult burger for my 4 year old. The waitress left us waiting for our check for some time. I left with the kids and my husband waited for the check and they only remembered us was when a lady came to bus the table.
