We tried a lot of different foods. The appetizers are great, especially the fried pickles!! The smoked chicken was ok.....not as done as I would like but it was pretty good. My husband got the fried catfish and said it was good. The music was wonderful!! We could have stayed all night just listening to it. And you HAVE to... More

I always visit here for the great BBQ nachos, GREAT music, and drinks. One of the best adult nightlife places in the city.

Really good food and really goody sic but possibly the worse service I've ever gotten. Three of four dinners were delivered on time but one wasn't delivered until the other three had finished eating - and it wasn't correct. Hush puppies never delivered but charged for. Had to remind him to bring us put humus. Never once were we asked... More

We went here on Friday and Saturday night during our trip, putting it of until later after checking out a lot of other clubs. We saved money on the cover charge with coupons we got from the concierge at the Doubletree Hotel downtown. Saw the same band both nights and it was top-notch both times with a mix of blues,... More

Decent party / wedding band. But not a blues band. Was expecting some respect for blues music. I realize that it is not 1985 with a lot of blues airplay, but wish I had listened to other clubs on the block before selecting a blues outfit.

Probably the food comes secondary her as the bands on stage are great. We had a table on the balcony floor and had a great view of the stage. The food was OK and the service mixed. Not sure whether we were welcome! Maybe too old.

The food was great, the entertainment was first rate! This is a must see when in Memphis! The patrons were of a mid-30' + crowd...very, very nice!

How can anyone go to Memphis and not experience the food and music? Not this traveler that's for sure. We were there on a Thursday night and the place was hot with music, food and margaritas. I know margaritas are not what Memphis is known for but what the heck.

So disappointed. We visited quite a number of Blues Joints on Beale Street, and had been told that BB King's would be the 'jewel in the crown'. Not so. Service was nonexistent. the hostess seated us, then no one came. NO ONE. My husband tried to get a drink from the bar (we had given up on food by this... More
