My husband and I tried Flight for the first time 6/28/10. First of all, being downtown, parking can be horrific in downtown Memphis. I was incredibly impressed that Flight has COMPLIMENTARY valet parking...star #1. The staff is awesome...star 2. The menu and variety...star 3. The FOOD...last 2 stars! I had the lobster, scallops and shimp. The presentation was definitely first class and of my goodness...there are no words for the TASTE...magnificent to say the least. They also offer a "flight", which is a sort of medley of EVERYTHING they offer. You simply must try this restaurant. You will NOT be disappointed. Oh, by the way, the prices are JUST A LITTLE higher than say, Red Lobster, and the food is a million times better. ENJOY.
Definitely the best burger in town, and the best clam chowder, fried shrimp (either dinner or po' boy), and fish sandwich (not breaded!). And their steak is both reasonably priced and absolutely delicious; the steak sandwich is big enough for two! The ambience is just what you'd expect in a neighborhood eatery...checked tablecloths and eclectic furnishings. There are always a couple of big screen TVs tuned to a sports channel (sound off, titles on) and background music playing. You can eat at the bar or at a table, and attire is pretty much come-as-you-are (within the bounds of decency and Health Dept. regs). And you never know who you might run into...
Out in Raleigh searching for a tire. Decided to stop at Shoney's for lunch. Haven't been to this one in quite a while. Buffet had cabbage vegetable and white bean soups, fried and baked chicken, breaded and baked pork chops (the OTHER white meat), turkey pot pie and baked fish, plus assorted veggies. Fish was STRONGLY fishy tasting, otherwise rest of meats were good. Potato salad was made with DILL relish - NOT a good taste. Three bean salad was going bad. Mashed potatoes were very good, and you had a choice of white or brown gravy. All in all, a so-so meal. I know it was after the lunch hour, but I was surprised at how few customers there were.
We ate there 2/13--Friday, the 13th! Specifically requested pecan encrusted SALMON and explained that this is a special request we do quite often and the result was pecan encrusted catfish! Half way through after realizing this isn't salmon, told waiter and he was apologetic and admitted he didn't listen. but no offer to exchange food. We did not "fuss."Upon leaving, a manager asked if we were given a red envelope for future specials and we said NO--obviously, the waiter FORGOT! Will we go back? YES, but will be 100% sure we have what we requested next time. We have been patronizing Jim's since 1990!
I was in Memphis for 50th Anniversary March on Washington celebration (Couldn't get to D.C, but I digress) Passed by restaurant around noon and it was packed. Came back after my visit to Civil Rights museum around 3pm and I was one of only 5 patrons. Got the chargrilled oysters as appetizers. Normally I don't suck on my food in public, but they were that good. Got the shrimp and grits as an entrée. It was great! The only way it would have been better: BIGGER shrimp instead of teeny tiny shrimp. It's worth the visit and its affordable.
The ice is so fine that it's like eating snow. There are so many flavors to choose from. They also have one of the best hamburgers I've ever had. I've seen cars from all over the tri-state area fill the parking lot and line the street. I've been there on 95 degree days and waited in a line a block long but it's worth it to get a snow cone (actually in a 16 oz cup) like you can't get anywhere.
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.
The steakhouse was off last night.Steaks were tough and the servers handed our food across the table and the plates were very hot. Strange for such a high end restaurant. The sides were just average and the desserts were so much like a Costco's cakes. We were a party of 5 so yes it was a very expensive evening for their type of food. Everyone was so disappointed.
I love there New Orleans seafood dinner but every time I call the Winchester store (901-755-6570) to place a order I get a disconnect recording or they want answer the phone.Today I got a recording saying the number I call is unavailable.Someone need to talk to the Manager in the corporate office.
The closest cooking to grandma's soul food kitchen in Memphis, Tn. This is the place for the mature to come and strike up some great discussions and share a part of history. I am the Mayor here by way of foursquare. I invite you here for a wonderful eating experience.
