Service was not friendly, but it was fast. The brisket with truffle mac and cheese ($16) was really delicious, even though I couldn't find the truffle. The iceberg wedge salad ($10) was also pretty good. Desert menu offers only 2 options and they were out of one. Ambience was nice and cool, good music on the radio.

Great atmosphere- hipster, for sure. Personally, the mimosa was my favorite flavor of the day. My friends enjoyed their meals for the most part. I had the gourmet patty melt, but it just wasn't my taste. I loved their home-cooked, melt-in-your-mouth potato chips. Everyone else got breakfast foods- like Oreo waffles. The portions are were just right. Tip: The mimosa... More

Went in for drinks and ended up eating here too, having looked at the menu and liked the sound of things. It proved to be a good choice, with tasty meals. Drinks included a big martini menu, and a good selection of local beers.

We popped into this place to get a beer and an appetizer during a day of walking around downtown Memphis. There was one server and a good amount of customers for just one server. We sat at the bar and would have gotten something from the drink menu (it had some great concoctions), but opted for our original beer intentions... More

The weekend brunch is delicious! The mimosas and bloody mary's are quite tasty and not skimpy with the adult beverage component. The brunch entree options are unique and can appease any tastes. We had the three little pigs omelette and Elvis pancakes, which were off the chart. I'd definitely recommend making your way over for brunch.

Arrived on a Thursday evening - the restaurant was freezing cold. We were seated by someone who seemed to be the manager - but served by a young woman. We're visiting from the UK, and I'm under 21, so this being a "cocktail" bar I asked if they did any non-alcoholic drinks, I was told "No." Not - no, but... More

My visit to the restaurant was pretty uneventful. As some reviewers quoted plenty of drama. I could see why because the crowd is pretty young overall adding the liquor things could become rowdy . The mimosas and Bloody Marys are $2.50 & you can't beat that. My husband had the chicken and waffles. I will order them next time. I... More

That was the reception we received after we showed the bartender our IDs. Apparently because we were from NJ and she from NY she isn't supposed to like us. I was surprised. And she responded that everyone in NY hates NJ. Oh. If she was being funny and laughing I may have brushed it off but she was rude. We... More
