Not what a Juke Joint would be. It felt like a commercial sports bar minus the large screen TVs and in their place a band, which to be honest wasn't the best and didn't help the atmosphere . Only stayed for the one drink. Not overly welcoming, for such a friendly part of the USA.

Came to Ground Zero BLUES Club for dinner and to hear live BLUES music, after all, it's in the name. Had catfish which was pretty good, but, the favorite parts of the meal were the black eyed peas and fried green tomatoes. The band, The Lizzard Kings weren't without talent, (and were VERY proud that theirs is all original music),... More

Spent a night in Clarksdale so I had to go to Ground Zero. Food was very good and service was great. Lots of character in this place.

We have been here several times and it has yet to disappoint. The food, of course, is typical bar food. Burgers are fantastic. Fried green tomatoes are a must!!! Beer is cold and service is friendly and efficient. And then there's the music... different musicians every night - pros and amateurs. We come back every time we are in town...

Fact: If you're in Clarksdale and you 're hungry or want a drink you come here. The fried chicken and the catfish are the highlights for us and we also enjoy the sandwiches. But, it's really the music and the atmosphere that make this place a must visit while in Clarksdale.

The plate lunch specials are delicious, home-style, real Southern food -- worth a visit for lunch during the week for salisbury steak, mashed potatoes, gravy, and turnip greens! Yummmmm!! Ground Zero Blues Club has great music every week and all year long. There's an open-mic on Thursday nights, always entertaining. This is one of the "must visit" places for a... More

Great spot to have lunch when walking about in downtown Clarksdale. Friendly staff and lots of great blues memorabilia. The Clarksdale Burger and fries was almost too much to eat! You can sign your name anywhere while you wait for your order. This was my 2nd time to visit this cool place. On another visit, I had the pleasure of... More
