The starters were divine, the main course were two of the best steaks I have ever eaten (2 x 4 ounce fillets). The dessert was slightly too large - even for me to complete! All were prepared beautifully and served with swift and gracious service. Hard to find anything that could have been improved in any way.

I have given a middle score for value because I was being treated by colleagues so unsure of the costs.

We had ~15 people in a private room for a work dinner and it was a great set up. Food was terrific and service was excellent. Would definitely go here again with a large group in a private room.

By far one of the best steak houses Ive been to and thats coming from someone who lives in Ft Worth where great beef is everywhere. The atmosphere is welcoming, the staff attentive and the bone in filet is as good as it gets.

If you are looking for an old school local steakhouse, Folks is it! For decades this restaurant has been and East Memphis staple. Prime steaks and black tie service sums it up. Lovely piano bar with some of the coldest martinis in town! Humphreys Butcher Shop, right next door, will sell you any cut of meat that is on the menu So that you can take it home and grill it yourself. Fresh salmon is flown in by FedEx daily! Consider a private room for an intimate dinner or private business event.

Had dinner there sunday night for the first time in 15 years. Had the crab cakes and a wonderful salad. It was a birthday dinner, and they had balloons at the table. June the waitress was wonderful and attentive. I have to admit, that it was as good as always. Really better than Ruth's Chris steakhouse. Fresh cut meats, not pre packaged like Ruth's Chris has gone to.
