Book a table as can get busy. Good service with a good selection on the menu. Not for vegetarians by any stretch. Delicious BBQ food at a decent price. Would definitely recommend.

Great food, huge portions and awesome bbq meat. The platter was awesome. We were a party of 6 adults and ordered the Elvis platter which was more than enough for all of us. Highly recommended for meat lovers out there. Great choice of pulled pork, ribs, sausages, corn bread, wings, etc.

Had the brisket and rib combo. Both were good, especially the tender brisket. Would definitely return. The ice cold lemonade or sweet tea would be good on a hot day (cold and rainy today).

Thank you so much Melody L! We so appreciate your great feedback. The Combo plate is a great way to try different things - so glad you had the brisket - that's an item you should never miss.

We've visited this cool restaurant downtown several times. Great place to eat then walk the boardwalk along the lake. The food portions are huge. Delicious. If you're into BBQ this is the place for you. Outdoor patio tables are wonderful on a summer evening.

I went to Memphis Blues in the peak of the summer. My friend and sat outside, eat our food and had a bunch of drinks. Great selection of bbq. I had the calamari sandwich/burger. It was amazing, I added some hot sauce and devoured it within minutes. The location of the restaurant is a minute walk away from the waterfront... More

...and is absolutely nothing like good southern BBQ. I lived in the Tennessee area and lived on BBQ. Food was luke warm and the meat had that reheated taste. Good fries but nothing to bring us back. Service, meh...nothing praise worthy .

I love the ambiance its funky. My friend and I were so lucky because the restaurant was not busy so we enjoyed much of our privacy while sipping our wine. The food was good especially the ribs. Servers were attentive.

The service was as I remember but the food was so/so. The fries were excellent but maybe I should have stuck with what I always used to order... Food wasn't bad but I make way better at home for a 1/5th of the price. Maybe my standards are too high but it wasn't as good as I remember. One bright... More
