I really enjoyed the band and the atmosphere of pure fun....we danced the night away. I ordered catfish with fries and slaw...red beans and rice on the side...all awful...fish was not fresh nor properly seasoned...fries were greasy...beans and rice were from a can, no flavor at all...hubby had chicken philly sandwich...it was bad....hire a real cook. It's just wrong to serve hungry people lousy food...

Pros: wonderful music-good service-fun crowd

Cons: the food was awful

Just the name brings a smile to my face. We had so much fun trying all the different rums they had to offer. Great southern food. We ate and danced until they closed at 2:00. Would definitely go back!

We had several drinks on Beale St. They had the best drinks by far!!!! The music was great and the atmosphere was very relaxing.

Yes, another restaurant on Beale that serves Southern classics.

However, I prefer this place moreso over the others because it sits on the corner of 2nd and Beale Street, so it's easier for folks to find, plus it's in the middle of Beale.

Nice service and price, and the food is always Memphis good.

It's a good thing Rum Boogie has the best House Band and music on the street because the food it terrible. Service and friendliness is fine it's just that they can't even fix simple food good anymore. I have been coming to Rum Boogie since it opened (22yrs) and it's only been the last couple of years they forgot how to fix food. I guess they feel they don't have to try to hard on the food since it's mostly tourist traffic but for crying out loud at least have a burger tha is fresh and hot and change the oil in the fryer sometime. Go see James Govan and Don Chandler or any of the other bands but eat somewhere else first.

Pros: Great Music, nice atmosphere, friendly service

Cons: Food is horrible, even simple things.

My husband and I visited the Rum Boogie for lunch, and although the service was friendly the food was aweful. He ordered a burger and fries and I ordered a chicken sandwich, fries and green tomatoes. I really find it hard to believe that its hard to make bad food that was so simple, but they did it. The burger patty was a little bigger than a 50 cent piece and burnt black , the fries ewww... and for 9 bucks.. the chicken and tomatoes were no better. I really would not suggest this place for food. The bathroom was terrible!!!!!! Looked as though it hadn't been cleaned in a week(or more). After that it made me wonder just what the kitchen could look like.

I really like to go to the Rum Boogie to have a few drinks and hear some great live bands. Today I went there for lunch and while the service was as good as I expected, the food left a BAD taste in my mouth. It is pretty difficult to serve a bad chicken philly and even worse fries, but somehow they managed to do it. It was the worst food I have had at a restaurant in years, and the thing is I am very easy to please. Just to let you know the other two people I had lunch with ordered from the meat and three lunch menu and thought it was pretty good!

I love going in there, service is not to hot, but was very busy too. I have been in there alot and the food can range from average to above average. I don't go there to eat, I just go to have fun and drink. The band is always great.

Pros: good music, good fun, dance time

Cons: parking, service is slow, places to sit

Try to get there in time for the Blue Plate Special at lunch. Order the sausage plate to start, a tradition in Memphis. The servers are REALLY friendly & your food will start to come before you're done checking out the memorabilia (the precursor to the Hardrock). The catfish sandwich is great, too.

Took my wife to memphis for mothers days. I've been looking for some good ribs and I know I've found them at the Rum boogie Cafe. You can get your ribs wet or dry, so I picked dry. Thay gave me the sauce on the side. I cant believe I ate that whole slab so fast. Those ribs are some of the best ribs I have ever eaten. The live music and drinks are the icing on the cake too.

As is the case with the whole Beale st. music scene...most of the bars (with the exception of the New Daisy) feature the same "house" bands night after night. At one time, you could go to Beale and catch several national recording acts on any given night. But now? Pathetic. Locals who are in the know regard Beale with a certain loathing because we feel they have compromised the abundent talent touring. If you come to Memphis, your best bet is the Gibson Guitar, New Daisy, Cooper-Young Deli, Map Room, Blue Monkey or the Hi-Tone. Cheers.

Rum Boogie is without a doubt, the best club in Memphis. Some of the biggest names of the blues pass through there. Seeing Pine Top Perkins was quite a thrill for me. Their regular act, the Rum Boogie Band is no nonsense down home blues. The lead singer, now I don't know him, but he's got the look of "I've earned it, and I aim to keep it." Doesn't look the type to cause any trouble but I suspect if you start it, you'll wish you hadn't.
