This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, and it proved to be very good. Shepherd's pie was well-executed, and the potato leek soup warming. The Irish soda bread that came with the soup was just the right touch.

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.

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.
