We stopped at Silky's on a recommendation from our daughter and we were not disappointed. There is a great open area just off the Beale Street entrance where you can relax, listen to music, have some drinks, and eat dinner. We did all of that

Sat outside on the patio. Checked out the diving goats (gotta say, pretty cool to have goats!), service was friendly and helpful with local information. Tried "The Diver" and it's delish drink! When leaving, they had dueling pianos going on in the inside. Fun place...More

After waiting for 10 minutes for someone to even acknowledge our existence, let alone offer a menu, we got up and left. And I don't think anyone even noticed... Thank you, Silky O'Sullivan's, because we ended up having a really nice meal elsewhere, and spent...More
