Once a venue for the Memphis music that visitors anticipate, Wet Willie's now sells high-test, multicolored frozen drinks to whomever has arrived to Beale with less than $10 in their pocket. Late night, while canned music plays, it becomes necessary to funnel the unruly crowd past the counter via cattle barricades.

Though we did not have a frozen drink, our Nachos were great! We were immediately welcomed and all the staff, very friendly. We found this to be one of the quieter eating establishments on Beale Street and that is why we chose it. But our nachos and cold beer could not have been better! Good choice, good price, good food... More

The staff was very friendly. I was planning on ordering a mango drink but they talked me into a mixed drink. Amazing choice! It was so colorful and flavorful.

Then you will be in heaven in the place on Beale Street. This is part of a chain and just like all the others--a long bar with about 25 spinning slushy machines churning out some seriously good frozen, alcoholic drinks. Lots of flavors and lots of combinations. Reasonable prices given it's a bar. Loud pulsating music so it's not exactly... More

With many different flavors of daiquiris, and that you can mix flavors as well, Wet Willie's offers something different from other bars on Beale Street. The drinks are not too strong and not too weak, and the prices are a good value for the sizes of drinks offered.

Great stop if you love frozen drinks. Long bar with about 30 pre-made frozen drinks rotating in tubs behind. All but one have alcohol. Serve pub food as well. our favorite stop on a hot day.

We had the attitude adjustment - shared a large. I recommend sharing unless that's all your having for the night. Great place to stop in and sit, especially when it's in the 90s outside.

I entered to a slow restaurant -- maybe 10 or so patrons inside. 2 waitresses -- I stood by the door as I did not know where they wanted me to sit. I waited and finally flagged the waitress and asked if I was supposed to seat myself... she just said yes and walked away. So I sat down -... More

Stopped in after lunch to cool off and add to our collection of Wet Willie's cups. This place never disappoints, regardless of city. The bartender was super sweet and knew exactly what we wanted ever though we couldn't remember the names of the drinks.
