We enjoyed a BBQ platter, beer, and duo with guitars playing blues and rock & roll. We were sitting outside in a covered patio and enjoyed the fresh air and music.

Whilst wandering around Memphis in 75F heat we were looking for a bar/restaurant with out door seating and came across Silky's. The service was quick and friendly and there was live music from around 2pm. Food options are pretty basic American fare but reasonable priced. Only concern was the fact that smoking was allowed and spoilt the experience and most... More

Totally understand this is a tourist spot, but drinks were very watered down and food was average. The service was fine. We stopped in for a late lunch. Not great, not awful. But pricey for a "blah" experience. Least memorable spot on Beale Street.

We ate an early dinner there - with some appetizers as well - prices are very reasonable. The fried pickles were great. The outdoor patio features 'diving goats' and were fun to watch! Inside areas later at night - a dueling piano bar that will sing anything that you pay $5 for

A great place that is large but service was great and you feel welcome. They have an excellent pour. Music was great. A great place to hang out and locals go there as well before and after the Grizzlies game. Fun place!!

I'd eat here every night if I could. The BBQ Pulled Pork was amazing, and the sauce was so yummy. The blues music that plays is a special ambiance that I wish I had more opportunities to enjoy. I highly recommend this place, and I will be back as soon as I'm back to Memphis.

In the courtyard seating area, listening to a solo artist who was doing some great songs, the food was average and not the hottest, the service was slow so ended up going to the bar myself
