We arrived here early for a mid week early evening performance and while the band was good there wasn't much atmosphere. The food and drink were satisfactory but it wasn't the lively night we were hoping for. Our waitress was attentive and the restaurant was ok, but we chose to move on once the entertainment ended.

My wife and I loved the balcony. It is by far the best view of Beale Street. For people watchers like us it was absolutly perfect looking down on the street below. We couldn't believe they weren't promoting it. They should focus on this part of their venue. The BBQ was good and my wife says the BBQ nachos were... More

We went to Alfred's because our host recommended going there for the music. This was a Sunday night and a regular on Sunday night is the Memphis Jazz Orchestra. Great music in jazz and swing style. Big band with lots of brass (trumpets, saxophone, trombones), good singer, too. The service at Alfred's was good and the drinks not overpriced. Also... More

Everything was terrible. Service sucked. Service was slow. They don't listen too well. They were scattered everywhere. Did not have anything organized. Everything was dirty and rusty.The sound system sucked and live band sound was too boxed in. The food was horrible. Tasted frozen and too much of fat than meat. My husband had a beer, it was good.

Fun crowd! Great music! Lots of dancing, chilling, drinking, and laughing going on here. Fun night. Went with a 21st birthday party. The crowd of the bar was mostly 20s-30s. Music was cover songs played live.

Alfred's had a large banner on their upstairs patio welcoming WVU fans who had come for the Liberty Bowl. It was a nice place, but it was just overrun with people. Had a couple beers there and decided to go somewhere less crowded.

The food was great, and the drinks even better! However, I gave Alfred's one star because of the RIDICULOUSLY RUDE door man, Bob. My friend and I had stepped outside, and upon going back in the door man started yelling at my friend and being very disrespectful because my friend didn't have his I.D. which the waitress had previously TAKEN....
