Description: Jerry Lee Lewis’ Cafe & Honky Tonk is located on World Famous Beale Street in the heart of downtown Memphis. It's walking distance from the Fedex Forum, making it the prime location to stop and eat before the big game or concert. We open early and stay open late, catering to both party animals and night owls alike.

We stopped in for dinner because they had live music going and the music was fine. However, we had the chicken nachos and the smoked wings. The wings were extremely skinny (poor things) with very little meat on them. The nachos were gross. They were "globby" with a very thick gravy-type cajun sauce. We were sorry we ate here. The drinks aren't too bad, but over-priced.

What z fantastic venue.
Prices were below what I expected and the food was delicious. The band were amazing with a pianist who was terrific. Whilst I would expect nothing less than that at Jerry Lee Lewis's diner but he was also great on the guitar.
When visiting Beale Street again this is the place I would make a bee line for.

Popped in to the Jerry lee Lewis bar for a drink ! But after hearing the band and particularly the piano player and singer we decided to stay all night ! We had a great evening the food looked good although we didn’t eat , the drinks were reasonably priced ! A must go for rock and roll fans !!

We called in for a drink early on a Sunday evening, but didn't manage to catch any live music. There was a private function where the band was playing and the bar we went into was almost empty. The drinks were okay, but there was no atmosphere and service was slow

We wound up stopping here for a drink on a Wednesday night, looking for good music. The piano player was very good and WAY energetic. The band put on a good show, although a little loud. This was one of the Beale Street bars that actually had good drink prices.
