People this is a dive bar. There's nothing healthy, gluten free or vegan here. The tile is ripped, the walls are missing plaster and the bathrooms aren't marked men or women. Don't come here if you expect a 5 star experience. That said, it's the...More

Visited here late on a Friday evening after cruising Beale St for a few hours. No band was playing but the juke box was "hot", the place was packed and the drinks were flowing. YOU MUST TRY A SOUL BURGER when visiting this joint. It...More

This is more about fun and atmosphere than coming for a meal, it is like no other bar you will experience. The soul burger is the only choice available and it is as good a burger as you'll ever get. There are so many stories...More

So not not what I expected, but the burgers are amazing and the people watching - off of the chain. Fun atmosphere.

OK, we didn't see any ghosts or apparitions or feel any cold spots (except under the Ghost River beer bottles) but I'm not sayin' it's beyond the realm of possibility. Certainly, besides a good burger and cold beer, this place has ATMOSPHERE and great stories!...More

If you like gritty, old dive bars, this is your place. It's poorly lit. Some of the floor-mounted bar stools are missing. The booths look like they could use a good bleaching and fumigation. It looks like the place is held together with spit and...More
