My daughter came to visit. We decided to have an early lunch at The Brass Door for Saint Patrick's Day. The corned beef and cabbage was excellent. The hamburger was amazing. All in all we left the restaurant fat and sassy. We'll be back.

The gleaming brass door has graced the entrance to 152 Madison Avenue since 1905. Today, behind the Door you’ll find a meeting place, a haven and refuge for Memphians of all walks of life: Journalists and poets, Gooners, Outlaws, musicians, cab drivers, research scientists, law students, ball players and electricians. Ex-Pats searching for that little taste of home. And locals looking for that pub with a little something extra…a bit of extra heart. Behind the door…you’ll find a family pub. Where good food, friendly service, and a warm atmosphere create moments to remember...together. Behind the Door …you’ll find a fellowship of sportsmanship in a place where matches aren’t watched, they’re experienced. Behind the Door you’ll find…the best pint of Guinness in Memphis pulled by the best bar staff in Memphis. Period. Come see what’s behind the door….The Brass Door.
