Went in here as it looked appealing, and had a live musician. We were not disappointed. The food was plentiful, and reasonably priced, washed down with a good bottle of wine. Our waitress, Mallory, was cheerful, knowledgeable, and attentive without being pushy. Would recommend a...More

This is a warning for any British folks out there who may want to visit. The rigid enforcement of ID laws meant we were thrown out because we couldn’t prove we were over 24. We are in our 60s!! Flattering it was not! Humiliating definitely....More

Everything I had at Automatic Slims was good, but the fried pickles were incredible and different than your typical fried pickles. The martini selection is also fun and varied. It’s a short walk to Beale.

The deep fried pickles are amazing! We went there on a food tour and it was to bad it was the last place we went because we were so full by then we could barely finish them. A must eat in Memphis!

We got there for brunch without a reservation although we called to make one and they said they didn’t take them. When we got there, there were empty tables waiting for reservations (which we were told they didn’t take) to arrive. They said wait was...More

Waited about an hour to be seated-that’s not a big deal-Sunday morning brunch. Once we were seated it took about an hour to get our order. Two of the three meals came out and one had to be sent back. Second meal arrives and still...More
