Need help with family reunion in Memphis

retrobolted | Nov 5, 2007 03:25 PM

I'm hoping some Memphis folks can help me find a good restaurant for a family reunion in Memphis. Actually, it's not exactly a family reunion -- I'm getting married in Memphis in the spring and am looking for a restaurant to host a party of sorts for my family and my bride-to-be's family (who are from Memphis). I call it a 'family reunion' because we don't want a stuffy wedding type situation.

To give a better picture of the kind of place we are looking forward, let me say: We had thought that Rendevous would be a perfect place, as it's a fun, informal atmosphere and we could introduce my family (from the far north) to some Memphis tradition. But when I talked to the people at Rendevous they sounded, to be a frank, a bit rude, and while they could give us a semi-private space it wouldn't really be cut off from the main crowd and would likely be quite loud. So....

Can anyone suggest a BBQ restaurant, or something similar, that has decent food, a good atmosophere, and would be appropriate for an informal gathering of 40-50 people? It could have a private room, or we could perhaps book the entire place if it is small enough.

I'll be very grateful for suggestions. Similarly, if you think of a place that deviates from this but might fit the general bill, please let me know as well.

many thanks.
