"The buffet and endless drinks were amazing! Loved the do it yourself bloody mary bar. Only complaint is that there were too many young loud people and the staff did not ask them to quiet down. Won't stop me from going back though!"

"I love coming to Ironside for brunch. Once you order your bottomless mimosas, you're pretty much all set. Unfortunately my sister & I had an afternoon spa appointment to get to, and with only one waitress upstairs, it took much longer than we would have preferred to get our bill taken care of.
Will definitely be back for the food & ambiance, but be forewarned to not be in a time crunch. The staff is helpful & friendly, but as usual with most self-service buffets, it may take a bit of time to pay & go."

"The food was excellent and was always fresh as it was a buffet. The atmosphere was great as well. The bottomless mimosa is such a great deal and they kept Em flowing.
Our server was attentive and kept our glasses full all morning. I would definitely come back a second time. Everything was great."

"After walking by this place many times on the weekend, I finally decided to have my bday brunch here with 5 of my friends. An endless brunch was offered! I really wanted to like this place but was somewhat disappointed. The bottomless coffee was watery. The grits was rubbery. The sausage was much too hard, overcooked. The food was more cold/cooled down than warm or hot. Not sure if I would come back anytime soon for the endless brunch(Sat, Sun) but may try coming a different day. Service was great and location perfect for free parking Sundays."

"We ended up with an odd drink because it wasn't clear on the menu that they didn't have a liquor license. They were nice about it though and did not charge us for the drink. Service was good, food was tasty, good location near AT&T park. We were there early and it was relatively empty, but would probably be louder later in the evening."

"First time there, it was a treat. The brisket was excellent and tasted divine. The Cubano has the perfect aioli sauce that is not over the top spicy, but quiches the thirst for spice. Watch out for the pickled pepper slaw ... it has a bite and just as delicious."

"$18 brunch buffet was worth the price! Although I wish there were more dish options, the chipotle-garlic potatoes and garlic greens were delicious! The fried sweet plantains were too sweet for me and the bread pudding was soft and just the right touch of sweetness. The service overall was wonderful--my waiter never let our carafes go empty and the peach and guava mimosas were delicious. It tasted like 95% champagne and 5% juice so $12 bottomless was well worth it! There is a 90min limit during their peak hours, so I would advise going in with a plan so you can eat and drink as much as you can--and leave full and happy."

"The food here is a creative, California spin on traditional BBQ. More fresh veggies and artisanal preparations than you'd see at a drive-in in Memphis. I found a couple of the dishes to be over-salted, and the collard greens, while tasty, were bright green and al dente, which will offend soul food purists. The cowboy beans were a bit too sweet for my taste. But the chicken was surprisingly moist and flavorful, even the breast meat. And the XXX sauce is truly incendiary, laced with habanero. Service was casual to the point of sloppy. Good selection of beers on tap, in bottles and cans. Even a couple of craft ciders. Overall, a good casual spot for tasty, creative and filling platters of smoked meats."

"Went to the ALL YOU CAN EAT brunch on Sunday. Inexpensive at $18 but remember the unlimited Mimosa or Bloody Mary bar is an additional $12. Some of their advertising makes it look like its included - it isn't. Also the coffee is not included - $4.50 for unlimited coffee. So your $18 brunch ends up about $35 actually with the mimosa and coffee. The waiter- Brandon - was great. Friendly, helpful, fun. Brunch food was great and unlimited. They could have used more fruit though. Vanilla Oatmeal was great. Use the bigger bowls that are after the oatmeal instead of the smaller bowls that are before the oatmeal- they are for the ceviche. Pancakes and eggs could have been warmer."
