This vibrant bar for nightlife has some of the best live blues music that Memphis is known for around. Great bar for dancing. There is an upstairs area as well with an arcade. The catfish and red beans and rice are the best items on the menu. If you visit, it is in the heart of Beale St., and on Fri. nights, you can purchase a wristband for access to all the clubs on Beale.

I really enjoyed the band and the atmosphere of pure fun....we danced the night away. I ordered catfish with fries and slaw...red beans and rice on the side...all awful...fish was not fresh nor properly seasoned...fries were greasy...beans and rice were from a can, no flavor at all...hubby had chicken philly sandwich...it was bad....hire a real cook. It's just wrong to serve hungry people lousy food...

It's a good thing Rum Boogie has the best House Band and music on the street because the food it terrible. Service and friendliness is fine it's just that they can't even fix simple food good anymore. I have been coming to Rum Boogie since it opened (22yrs) and it's only been the last couple of years they forgot how to fix food. I guess they feel they don't have to try to hard on the food since it's mostly tourist traffic but for crying out loud at least have a burger tha is fresh and hot and change the oil in the fryer sometime. Go see James Govan and Don Chandler or any of the other bands but eat somewhere else first.

I really like to go to the Rum Boogie to have a few drinks and hear some great live bands. Today I went there for lunch and while the service was as good as I expected, the food left a BAD taste in my mouth. It is pretty difficult to serve a bad chicken philly and even worse fries, but somehow they managed to do it. It was the worst food I have had at a restaurant in years, and the thing is I am very easy to please. Just to let you know the other two people I had lunch with ordered from the meat and three lunch menu and thought it was pretty good!

Try to get there in time for the Blue Plate Special at lunch. Order the sausage plate to start, a tradition in Memphis. The servers are REALLY friendly & your food will start to come before you're done checking out the memorabilia (the precursor to the Hardrock). The catfish sandwich is great, too.
