Not noisy ... just a nice cozy place to enjoy dinner. Blackened redfish served with risotto topped with crabmeat was great! My husband really enjoyed the Chicken Picatta with mashed potatoes. Best meal we've had out in a couple months of traveling!

Came here for a drink not long after arriving at Memphis. We sat in the window and had a few beers/gins. The bartender was super friendly and really attentive. He gave us some local knowledge and was very chatty-a really nice guy.

We enjoyed Sunday breakfast in this funky restaurant. The music playing was great and the food was delicious. We tried chicken and waffles and BBQ poached eggs. Everything was great. Service with a smile and comfortable seating.

We weren’t sure what the place would be like, but were pleasantly surprised! Very good omelets, and just a cross the street from the Peabody where we stayed.
