While on a business trip in Memphis, stopped at this restaurant on a whim, with a large group of folks. The seafood was very good as well as the salad. Seems like a nice local restaurant. Would certainly go back again.

I don't understand the negative reviews. I went with a group of 6 including two toddlers to celebrate my dad's birthday. The service was attentive, the prices were not bad (other than $29 filet mignon) and all the food was delicious. The calamari was tender...More
