Love this place!! I went and enjoyed the food, service and music. One reviewer called it a tourist trap, well if that's so it is a fine representation of what Memphis has to offer (I'm from Dallas) and I recommend all tourists go there for great Memphis flavor!!!!
The people writing these reviews must be employees of the resturant. I have been to Isac Hayes three times (either due to company party, or I had a buy one get one free coupon) Every time the portions have been small, cold, and the food just eh... Add in the slow service and the prices... There a dozens of better resturants with in a block of this one.
Over the past weekend, one of my best college girlfriends invited me and another classmate to visit her in Memphis. She took us to Isaac Hayes Restaurant for lunch. The Turkey Meatlof and Mango Ice Tea was great! While we were there, we saw the owner.
The first time I went to the restaurant it was for a comedy show later that night. And we waited 15-20 minutes for a table. The waiting area is inside of the restaurant and we could see that there were only 4 tables were people were seated and plenty of wait staff. It took a long time for the food to come out. I ordered a shot and they put ice in the shot. Then when they came back with a new shot for me and a shot for my friend. They brought me a new shot and they brought him the shot they had given me first but without the ice. The glass had condensation on it and it tasted watered down. And the food is normal food, nothing special. I went to the bar another night and the bar staff was very helpful and kept us laughing and enjoying ourselves.
