The Yacoubians are some of the most caring people I know in business. On my first visit, they welcomed me with a smile and a friendly greeting. I did not feel like a customer when I was in their store. They made me feel totally at ease in every transaction and have each time I have returned. They have been in business for a very long time and seem to know what they are doing. Daniel appears to be a no nonsense kinda guy, but I have found him to be incredibly honest and straight-forward. They will not sell you junk. They will take the time to explain why something is more valuable than something else. They will give you fair value for gold exchange and show you how to tell what is gold and what is not. They are diamond experts plus incredibly talented at creating beautiful custom jewelry. I have never known them to be anything but friendly and welcoming to me and other customers while I was in the store. I would choose Daniel Yacoubian Jewelers over any other jewelry store in Memphis for their integrity, if nothing else!
The food is good. Reasonable priced and good portions. There is room for improvement:1. We've ordered food at the drive thru both visits and we had to constantly repeat the order. Our first visit an item that we paid for was not in the order. We had made it home and chalked it up as a 3.00 loss. The second visit we again we had to constantly repeat the order. The worker kept interrupting me while I tried to correct where she had errors in it. The was to have 1 cheeseburger w/no lettuce and tomato, she also left off the onion. It was supposed to have been included. So there should be some work on the customer service skills: not having the customer to have to repeat the order and get the order right. 2. The menu marquee needs some work. There are many spelling errors on there, customers have to decipher what they are trying to order. I'm chalking it as mistakes that can be easily corrected, small things like this reflects bad on the business. Sharks serve good food and as in everything there is always room for improvement.
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.
I've been to Perignons a few times during special events and the crowd is very grown and laid back. The food is wonderful, it's comes out hot and fast. I attended a family member's baby shower in October of 2015 and it was a perfect success. I will recommend it to any and everyone who is looking to have a wedding reception , anniversary , babyshower or even birthday party ,to book this building. The way they transform the building for certain events is amazing. The owner is very friendly and the staff is very helpful and polite.
Ill admit ive lived in Memphis my whole life & had never been to Uncle Lou's until last year. I saw it on tv time after time & knew I had to try it. I had extremely high expectations & was preparing myself to be disappointed.....I was not!! The hot sweet spicy love is amazing, the chicken is perfectly cooked & juicy, the skin not too crispy. The honey butter biscuits are to DIE for! Fried okra on the side? Yes please! Fried cream corn? YUM! You have not LIVED until youve eaten Uncle Lou's. I will be back as a regular customer.
This place is beautiful and the staff are very professional and kind. The food was amazing and the service was just as good. The drinks were perfect and the atmosphere was live and entertaining. The music was great and it accommodated each guest by providing music for all generations to enjoy. If you ever go to Memphis or live in Memphis this is truly a place that you must go too. You will not be disappointed and you will definitely tell more people about it and you will have a great time.
