My husband enjoyed the gumbo and I had fried green tomatoes so just a light lunch. Empty at that time but looks like it could be a cool place later on in the day. The goats are cute!

The music wasn't brilliant the night we visited, but it was OK. The food was good and the service was OK. Not sure what makes this an Irish pub, other than it serves Guinness.

My wife and I recently visited this place. I would not return due to the poor attitude, and service, from our waitress. The food was OK, but there are other places to spend your money.

Pretty great restaurant in Memphis very hard to find vegetarian options along Beale street then found this place, which I was pleased. Very good food and great service. And a very quirky extra is the goats.
