Memphis wrestling legend Jerry "The King" Lawler now owns 159 Beale, and it's incredible. See "King" Jerry Lawler's Wrestling Hall of Fame Bar & Grill"

Our party hung out here during our trip. Love the atmosphere, food was very good. Music was great too. Comedian/singer taking requests was funny and entertaining!

I asked around - where can I go for some good Karaoke, and I was directed here. The place was a lot of fun. There were the usual mix of Karaokiers - the good & the bad, which is, of course, half the fun of it. Karaoke is like a box of chocolates. The bar was great, with good staff... More

We came in two nights in a row; the first night for the music, returned to enjoy a dinner with the music. (Wednesday and Thursday) First night they had a gentleman that played Eagle's tributes. Second night was all blues. Ended up ordering the smoked chicken salad (strawberries and pecans with their own strawberry BBQ sauce vinaigrette dressing), it was... More

We were looking for a quick place to grab lunch before heading out to the next town on our trip and a nice man out front showed us their appealing menu and sold our kids on the place. We were seated and it took over 10 minutes for the waitress to approach us. The couple next to us left after... More

We should have had an idea that this place wasn't the best when they had a gentleman prompting people to come in for dinner around 6:00 pm on a Friday night. The food was very bland and drink was weak. My son's hamburger was neither good nor bad. The smoked chicken wings were did not have a smokey taste, but... More

We were just walking by trying to decide where to eat. This place seemed really simple. Nothing fancy. But the food was so good!! I mean really good. The salad was HUGE. It had strawberries and Cajun spices. Yum. The ribs were fall-off-the-bone tender with a mild tasty sauce. There was a live singer. Very good. I attached a picture.... More

We stopped in for a late evening snack and had the barbecue sampler appetizer and it was just ok. Service was also average. They did have a guy playing the blues on his guitar and he was pretty good! Would go there for drinks and to listen to the music...and try someplace else for better food.
