Major disappointment. Food was great but service was abysmal. At the door we were told it was free entry but by the time we got inside we were told there was an entry charge as the management had 'changed its mind'. Inside the waitress had as much charm as an ironmongers vest and even refused to serve my 52 year... More

Outstanding Ribs- Worth the visit. Recommended and the food was really good. The ribs fall off the bone. The service (Melvin) was a true memphis local with that southern charm. We went early before the big crowds. You get better individual attention. Even better without the live band music. Seats too close to stage if music was playing(for me). Regardless... More

Very fun, intimate experience with some great blues musicians. The all-star band plays some great blues, mixed with some Motown and R&B. Great fun to dance on a weekend night. The Will Tucker band and Lisa G & Flic's pic bands offer top notch musical entertainment affording the opportunity to get up and boogie in the afternoon or early evening.... More

We had such a terrific time here!! Good ribs, and other menu items, not expensive, and you get this incredible live music! We enjoyed the King Beez - very talented musicians and singers, and loved what they sang. A bit loud, but still. Our waitress was bery good too.

We had my 17 year old son with us on this trip and he was able to go into BB King's for dinner and to listen to the music. Really good ribs, collard greens, and more. We had a great table for dinner and even better to watch the entertainment (both the band and the people on the dance floor).... More

Band was playing some great blues and having fun with the crowd. Waiter was very attentive. Food was above most bar fare. Drinks were good and cold.

Some of the reviews made me nervous about going here, but it is a good option for families with children. We had an early dinner and stayed to listen to the Will Turner Band, it was a great evening for us and our kids love blues so it was nice for them to experience live music. We had the catfish,...

Excellent choice for families on Beale street. Friendly environment with good food and great music. Especially true if you get a chance to see Memphis Jones...put on a fantastic show!
