    Others like Flying Saucer have a larger beer selection, but this place has crafts and an atmosphere - due to locals, service industry peeps, & musicians tipping pints daily! The craic is good here! ☺
  • Zach H.
    Damn...don't miss this place! Local dive, but one of the best I've ever been to! Outstanding Italian bar food, incredible drinks and some of the best service you'll find. Colin at the bar is the best!

    Go downstairs for a smoke free restaurant & bar. Terrific bar food, really. Amazing club. Chicken nuggets. Salads. Aldo is Awesome - the man with a plan in Memphis.

    One if the best bars in the city. Very chill bartenders and the food is amazingly good (not typical bar food). Check it out on a week day if you really want a good, local experience.

    Try the chicken cutlet sandwich or the meatballs. Don't leave without getting a fireball shot. The breakfast sliders with bacon & cheese are great too! If you leave a good tip, they'll ring the bell!

    If I lived in Memphis this place would be my hangout. Great menu. Ahi Tuna Wonton to die for. And an excellent old school jukebox filled with 80's classics.

    The food is great and 99% of the staff is super friendly, but I was rudely informed by one waitress that I "should think about the fact it's happy hour" when I ordered food to go. She glared as well.

    Very good food, Island club, meatballs and spaghetti are just some of my favorites. Good service and just an overall good bar/restaurant in the downtown area.

    All the food is delicious. Sliders are best in town & fries have sugar on them! Try the grilled cheese dipped in the tomato soup. Or for something fancier... Never had mussels at a bar? Try them here!

    This is definitely a "bar" but the food is better than any bar food. Order the tomato soup... Best I've ever had. Sliders are good and the special pastas have always rocked!

    Egg sliders are great. Chicken cutlet is great. Veggie barrio is great. Fries have crack on them I think because I'm addicted.

    If the poblano chicken chowder is soup of the day, get it and add some Jimmy's Crazy Good red chili hot sauce

    Great hangout. Great food. Only complaints were that the vodka and cran was tasteless and they allow smoking in that tiny area.
