You order at the counter, select your drink from the fridge (or go for the 6 beers in a bucket deal) and are provided with a square which flashes when your meal is ready for collection. I tried catfish for the first time which I...More

Just dropped in for a quick bite of lunch at this funky little spot across the street from the Peabody Hotel. Jambalaya was tasty, although it is not really traditional Jambalaya, much more like étouffée since it is sauce poured over rice instead of being...More

If you love seafood & you want an authentic old Memphis restaurant, this is the place, it's not swanky but it has bags of character & the food is good. You have to select your food on arrival & order before finding a table, you...More

This is right across from Peabody Hotel and it looked like an interesting place. This is the kind of place I expect to see on Diners Driveins & Dives. Very funky decor with three versions of flying fish all over walls. You order and sit...More
