This place is so much fun and has great food. The live music is great and there's even some room for dancing. The prices are pretty reasonable too. Highly recommended!

We arrived a little before 5:00 on a Monday evening so we were not really expecting much .. just needed to eat. But boy were we happy with our decision. First, the atmosphere is great. It is a restaurant so bringing underage children is no problem (at least while we were there). You get the feel of the 50s blues... More

The drinks were well worth the price. We had appetizers, so can't really comment on the food to much, they were good for apps. The KingBees rocked (or blues'd) out. Smoke free was a blessing!

Chicken wings in a sticky barbecue sauce are great. My wife didn't like such a thing until she tried these. We bought six bottles to take home. And the music was too cool. A trio including Blind Mississippi Norris, wow, real blues with a jazzy guitar and bass. We went only for appetizers, we also got the corn jalapeño fritters.... More

Food was fantastic and the music was great! We had a large party (9) but got a table quickly and our server did a really good job .. best brisket I've ever had and others in our party thought the ribs were amazing as well!

We stopped in to grab a bite to eat while checking out Beale Street in Memphis. The food was good and the beer was cold but I have to say that after the excitement of live music in bar after bar on Broadway in Nashville (early on a Tuesday evening), we were disappointed to find no live music here at...
