Patrick’s News and Events

Mike Miller Honored as the 2014 Memphis Restaurant Association’s Restaurateur of the Year

Wednesday, April 15, 2015


Some say it takes a leap of faith to get into the restaurant industry. The two award recipients at the upcoming Memphis Restaurant Association Annual Banquet have not only jumped feet first into the risky industry, but both have also jumped off skyscrapers in support of local charity.

Patrick’s Neighborhood Bar & Patio owner, Mike Miller, and Gem Restaurant Supply owner, Hale Barclay, who have both participated in (Miller twice) the Special Olympics ‘Over the Edge’ event where participants rappel down White Station Tower to raise money for the charity, are this year’s Restaurateur and Associate Members of the Year respectively.

Miller, a Past MRA President, is a 30-year veteran of the Memphis restaurant scene. Today, in addition to running his popular East Memphis restaurant, Miller heads up the MRAPAC where he spearheads legislative initiatives for the local hospitality industry. He has served on the TnHTA Board since 2008, and sits on the Board of Serving Memphis. When not jumping off buildings or jumping in the freezing Mississippi River at the Annual Polar Bear plunge, Mike can be found helping to educate Memphis youth about the culinary arts through local non-profit Knowledge Quest.

Fellow daredevil, Barclay has loyally served the Memphis restaurant community through his supply business since 1980. He has been an ardent supporter of the MRA, as both a member since 1990 and representing his fellow vendors on the board since 2011. Barclay also extends his service to the hospitality industry to local charities such as the Mid-South Food Bank, Haiti Medical Missions of Memphis and Children’s Heart Foundation.

The Banquet on Sunday, March 29th was held for the first time at the Memphis Cook Convention Center where the Association welcomed newcomers and honored guests, Bass Pro, to the Memphis hospitality family.

‘Bass Pro adds a new, game changing element to the hospitality offerings in Memphis,’ says Banquet Chair Kate Pera. “Most people don’t realize the extent of their hospitality expertise. We’re very excited to welcome them into the Memphis restaurant and hotel community.”

The money generated from the banquet helps cover general operating expenses that allows the Association to continue their educational programming and governmental services for their membership and the Memphis restaurant community as a whole.

The Memphis Restaurant Association is the premier support organization dedicated to the success of the restaurant industry and community.

Crab Legs

People are getting splashed in the face with crab jus, crab meat, shells, and butter when we get a hold of a freshly boiled batch of crab. It’s a free for all, and there’s no stopping until we get our fill!!! Watch out Patrick’s–we’re coming!

Have you got crab legs? Betcha look funny walkin on ’em!

Crab legs are no longer available at Patrick’s!

My favorite thing about crab legs is that they taste like crab legs!!

All of the cracking, bending, digging, ripping and pulling that go into releasing that little bite of crabby goodness is so worth it because they ARE so good!! My group of crab-loving diners love it when they can get all you can eat. We can eat a bunch. We tie on the bib and go to town.

Christmas Parties at Patrick’s

Wouldn’t it be nice if your office Christmas Party could be at your neighborhood watering hole? Well, it can–just convince the boss to call up Patrick’s and they’ll take it from there. What better a place to have a holiday gathering? Delicious food: check. Cold beverages: check. Great atmosphere:check. Friendly and helpful staff: check. Top value: check.

If you can’t convince your boss to have the party at Patrick’s, maybe you can convince he/she to at least give the gift that everyone will love: Patrick’s Gift Certificates!!! Seriously, if someone gave me a Patrick’s gift certificate I would be sure that that person was a priority and that they would be on the Christmas list for good. a) they have good taste and b) they know what the deal is………Patrick’s doesn’t ever disappoint.
