We ended up at Alfred's both nights we were in town. The first night featured a tribute singer for Johnny Cash. The 2nd was a band that sang a variety that included Aretha Franklin, Prince and others. They have a kitchy little drink called the Funky Monkey - very good and banana like, try one! It was a great music... More

We sat upstairs on the outdoor patio overlooking Beale Street. I ordered a cheeseburger. It came with what appeared to be home-made potato chips. They were delicious but the burger was nothing special, overcooked a bit. Our waitress disappeared after she served us our meal. Eventually she came back but we sat there and waited for quite a while.

Horrible service at the bar!!!!! First time here, won't be back. Sat in corner by the stage, took 20 min to get a drink, when the bartender finally acknowledged us, seemed as if we were an inconvenience!!! Live music was great.....

We went into Alfred's and opted to have a drink up on the Patio. It's a great place to sit and soak in all of what Beale St. has to offer as well as getting in some people watching from above. They didn't seem to have a large selection of drinks, but we weren't looking for a fancy cocktail hour.... More

The waitresses were very nice. The ribs and bbq chicken were excellent. We were there early 11:30am and they weren't very busy, but they started getting busier while we were there

This is right at the bottom of Beale Street. We were only here on a Wednesday afternoon so it was quite and we did not get to see any live music. It was friendly enough and the burger was excellent.

Walked right in on a Thursday night. No cover. Food was decent. Drinks were as well. Service was ok. The Johnny Cash review was good. This was one of the only places with live music at 7 PM.

Absolutely terrible service from barmaid downstairs wasn't interested in serving us at all. Gave it a chance and went upstairs where service was also appalling

6 of us stopped in on a Saturday night for dinner and drinks. Service was terrible, waitress screwed up our orders. One of the girls finally got her meal about 10 minutes after several of us were done with ours. I ordered Bowl of Gumbo and side of Texas toast. Gumbo had good flavor but wasn't hot (temp.) and the... More

Great music venue that serves food.We loved the band that played the evening that we stayed.We picked on a pulled pork appetizer that was fine,but during the time we were here not too many people were eating,it was more about the liquor and music.Everyone one that served us was very nice and had an enjoyable evening.
