From our 16oz. bone in Ribeye to our Shrimp and Grits and decadent desserts, Itta Bena has something for everyone. So come as you are – no jackets required, for great food in a relaxed atmosphere with unrivaled southern hospitality.

Completed our fantastic long weekend visit to Memphis with dinner at this hidden gem! Perfection overlooking Beale... from the best shrimp & grits ever to the blues beat from underneath. Impeccable service with just the right touch of southern hospitality made it the best meal of our visit.
