Stopped in on Dec 23, 2016. Food was great. Had the corned beef sandwich it was awesome. Bartenders were great, also they was live entertainment.

Good place to have a beer and appetizers. Check out the goats, they have a castle and they're pretty fat. Nice bar

Stopped in for a nosh mid-day after walking Beale and visiting shops/museums. We were going to sit in the garden but after a few minutes we decided the bar was far more our style. Great ribs, nice cold beer and great bartenders who gave some super recommendations for things to do and see.

We walked in randomly purely because we thought the beer garden looked cool. We were expecting a tourist trap, but the drink were actually really good and very well priced. The service was great. We had a really nice couple of hours here.

My bride decided to give them a try with my brother in law. I'm glad she did. The fresh oysters and very fresh pork rinds are a must for appetizers. They were both fantastic. We spilt a BBQ sampler for dinner so everyone got a little taste and we weren't disappointed. My bride had the Hurricane as she said fruity,... More

Good place for the flavor of a dirty old bar with good ribs and outdoor seating. I wouldnt eat anything what wasn't cooked. After walking Beale, I realized they are all dirty old bars. Make sure you have your travel vaccines. Part of the history of Beale is much like Bourbon street. The original filth is still here.

I was with a group here on an outing in November. I actually had a good time as the food was good and prices fair. However, I believe the waitress skimmed my business credit card. I'm very protective of my cc as I've had a couple skimmed in the past. I try to never let it get out of my... More

Went in to eat some Brisket, which was so tender I cut it with a fork. It's definitely more of bar with food. There was some live blues music which I enjoyed. Then at 9 pm the piano duo got up and played songs by request ($5). That was my favorite part of the night. I'd recommend going for a... More

We ended up here in the afternoon and spent it listening to a great blues band in the garden....next to the goats! It was so great we ended back for dinner. The oysters were delicious and the Hurricane is a must have here!
