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

This is a traditional American self-service diner with gingham tables and fish décor on the walls, bright lights, and a 1950s feel. The catfish is great, done whichever way you like it. I loved my grilled catfish - the first time I'd ever eaten this...More

Was excited to have a chance to eat crawfish. Unfortunately it wasn’t a good lunch. No flavor in the crawfish at all. Waste of $60.

Strolling through downtown Memphis & ran into this place. Stood in line for a late lunch, ordering at the counter, while deciding from a large menu that hung on wall above. Decided on the Shrimp Po Boy, and waited about 10 minutes before number called....More

We tried the mudbugs, shrimp, tacos and lobster soup. Everything was great. Right across the street from The Peabody.
