We were strolling down Beale street and decided to hop in for some dinner and were not disappointed. The atmosphere and music were really nice, the staff were pretty friendly and the food was pretty good too.

We enjoyed our experience at Silky's. We were entertained on the outside patio by wonderful guitarist that was out there that day. The food was great...the weather was awesome. The bar needs more staff but all in all a great experience.

We enjoy going here day or night for food and drinks. They most always have live music inside and out. BBQ nachos, oysters, and drinks are great! Ladies- I recommend the Beale Street Cupcake mixed drink.

Stopped in for a drink and to listen to some music. Has an interesting front to the building - as if there was a fire and they left the front wall up. Waitress was courteous. Didn't have anything to eat although some of the dishes...More
