When we were here, they happened to be auditioning for the Voice! It was great to sit back and watch the audition process.

I had booked a table for dinner here before we arrived in Memphis - probably quite a good idea if you want to get in without a wait. Nevertheless, we did manage to get a table the next night as well, although we didn't have a booking. The service was great and the food was perfectly adequate, but it was... More

Was not sure to go in or not as it is very dark and dirty, the service was great and the gumbo was the best we have ever had. Band plays from 6 pm and is different each night. Not to expensive you up stairs and down to choose from to sit.

Our visit was on a cold winter evening and after braving the cold to walk from our hotel it was wonderful to bunker down at BB King's. We were seated upstairs and could overlook the live band who were excellent. We experienced good ole southern food - fried chicken and brisket - at a reasonable cost (around $15 each) and... More

They perform there every Monday for sure and other... More

On our first night in Memphis we hit BB King's. I made a reservation and our table was waiting. They do charge a small cover charge but check out your hotel brochure rack for a coupon. We heard 2 different bands, 1 during dinner and another when we returned after visiting many other bars on Beale. We decided the quality... More

I have lived in Memphis all my 63 years and had never been to BB Kings. Thanks to my co-workers, we all went for lunch and the food was perfect and the plates were huge. You definitely got your money's worth here. I want to brag on our waitress Angie who was just marvelous. She had only been there 2... More

We went to the club for the music (only) and we were not disappointed. The house band was incredible and performed two great sets whilst we were there. Well worth the small cover charge of $6 a head.
