Soul Fish Cafe opens its fourth Memphis Area location by the Wolfchase mall at 5:00 pm on July 31, 2019. It is located in a newly constructed building at 8413 US 64. The Soul Fish Cafe has become a recognized name in the Memphis area, with locations in Germantown, East Memphis, and Cooper Young where they have been serving up catfish and po'boy sandwiches since 2006.
With its classic outdoor dining experience, the Soul Fish is bound to attract customers from all around the Bartlett area. In an article with the Memphis Business Journal, Tiger Bryant, co-owner of Soul Fish Cafe, was quoted on why this location was ideal, saying "We're going to be pulling from Bartlett, Arlington, Oakland, Cordova and it's just a big cross section of people coming from the Mid-South that come to the Area."
In the same MBJ article, the new construction was estimated to cost more than $1 MM.
