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.

First off we went at lunch time on a Monday. My wife, my 2 year old son, and myself. We had to wait 30 minutes for a table which was fine, I understand. We ordered our food as soon as we sat down and then we waited for an hour and 15 minutes (very difficult to do with our 2 year old with us). The waiter only came by once in that time period of waiting. No refills or anything. The food was no were near what I expected. I got the Crab Cavallo with the Mediterranean potatoes. The crab was not cooked crisp enough and save the extra $1.69 and just get the regular potatoes (wasn't much difference). I would have rather gone to just about any other known breakfast place in Memphis, Tn. Save yourself the disappointment and go somewhere like Brother Junipers.
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 visit Denny's (at this location) at least twice a week, they just can't seem to get it together here, the hostess does not know when she seat someone, she needs to let the waitress know, I sat for 10 minutes before I had to call the telephone where she was standing to ask her to get me a waitress, then I placed my order and when she brought it the food was cold because they can't get the air conditioner fixed where it will cut off properly, I just sent the second bowl back , I don't know why they cannot get this location together properly, who is the owner of this location?
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.
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.
The 1st time I came service was good.I guess it depends on who your server is. The last time service was slow, my drink was slow to get to me and also refills, I kept running out of drinks. My son order the chicken and waffle, they came out cold and they forgot the dipping sauce. It took them over 5 mins to bring anything back. The only reason that I'm not giving them 1 star is they do have a couple of good servers .
