Last night we has dinner at Interim..we eat there frequently. They have a great little bar, and usually their food is VERY good. Their mac and cheese is excellant as an appietizer. Their burger, even though it is more of an upscale restaurant...is awesome. My wife and I had the baked chicken and rice last night. We were with another... More

Interim has been around a long time and is always great for entertaining business clients or for small dinners with family and friends. The establishment has an open kitchen concept and it's fun to watch your meal being prepared by the staff. Great variety on the menu from fancy food to great burgers, all presented in style. Staff is always... More

A very nice variety of unique (but not overly crazy) Sunday brunch options. The restaurant utilizes local fare in their selections and the open kitchen adds to the ambiance without being a distraction. Our server, Nicolas, was extremely attentive and professional. We've been before when visiting Memphis and we will be back. Interrim has never disaapointed.

If you are looking for a nice, quiet dinner, this is not the place. If you are looking for a lively place with delicious food, then you've found it. You cannot go wrong with the mac & cheese---trust me, try it!

There is nothing worse than going to what looks like a really great restaurant but then let let down by a few off-putting details. My business dinner guest was presented with a glass with lipstick on it. True, the server whisked it away and brought another one - but no apology was offered. I also thought the service was a...

In the last two weeks I have had two wonderful meals at Interim. The first dinner was beautiful treatment of fresh summer vegetables. The next dinner was the seared scallops with mussels and risotto. The dessert was Le Bourbon, an amazing confection with delicious honey and strawberries. See attached picture.

My wife and I went to Interim over the weekend. This is a fine dining restaurant, and the majority of the food dishes I saw looked amazing! We went, however, to experience the fantastic burger that we've heard so much about. It was delicious. Both of us had a regular salad, and it was also delish. Sprinkled with chunks of... More

What an amazing evening. Our server, Hal, was a delight, and provided wonderful service. We were very pleased when Executive Chef David Krog offered to hand-make chicken tenders for my daughter. Wow - they rivaled any I've ever tried anywhere. My duck was Exceptional - with a perfect crisp and seasoning on the skin, and tenderly cooked. My wife enjoyed... More

We had a business dinner with colleagues. The restaurant is nice and friendly. Wines are good. Food is on average upper level but too expensive for me. Anyway it was a nice evening.
