  • There's a goat here. Seriously. Go see the goat.
  • Diver!
  • Beware of the curly hair bartender!!! Mean little thing!
  • Besides the goat, the bar really doesn't have much to offer but rude bartenders, generic atmosphere, and a 5 dollar cover. If you are from outta town, stop by and have a diver, but otherwise avoid it.
  • A blues band and 2 goats; what else does a Memphis joint need?
  • Ask for Cliff. Best server.
  • Go see the goat. A random dude told me the first ones liver exploded. :-o
  • Don't be fooled. Cheese fries=nacho cheese fries
  • Strawberry Daiquiri is good but do not even try the pia colada! Yuck! All 4 girls agreed, waste of money! Stick with Daiquiri! :-) or beer! Great live music! Great patio :-)
  • Now if like a historical rustic powerhouse club it is SS
  • Meet Silky and kiss his ring!!!
  • Grab a friend (or ten) and try a Diver Bucket - it's a gallon of mystery booze.
  • Sit on the patio and check out the goats!
  • You can drink a Diver with just 2! My husband and I did it! YUMMO!
  • Try Silky's Irish Ale. Not the cheapest beer on tap, but brewed locally by Ghost River and delicious!
  • Share the diver with lots of friends!
  • The Diver Bucket is the best deal on Beale Street.
  • Best outdoor spot on Beale. By "best" I mean "the only."
  • They don't feed liquor to the goats anymore. :-(
  • Someone keeps farting. Stop. Seriously.
