Good food and music all together. The Gator Gumbo and Red Beans & Rice were a hit. The burgers were great and the steak salad was huge. Service was excellent. All together a great experience on Beale Street

Of all the clubs and bars on Beale Street, Rum Boogie Cafe is the one not to miss. If their superfine rum selection and beer aren't enough to entice you, the Cajun and barbecue menu should-ribs, fried catfish, gumbo and red beans and rice served by fast and friendly servers. Live Music 7 days a week 365 days a year!
