Got there later in the evening and caught a great band. The guitar player was using a wireless system and he came off the stage and gave us the entire guitar solo at our table. Then we went across the street for ribs. Fabulous night out!

Definitely a blues margaritaville which is fine and all bc that is what you do on Beale....drink and listen to music. We didn't eat the food. It's a $5 cover and we bounced in and out all day and night so it worked for us. Juke Joint was more fun though.

Solid but unsurprising house band, over priced drinks, boring overall. I got a Long Island that was basically a tall sour mix on the rocks, among a few other crappy drinks that were not noteworthy. There are better places on Beale.

We read that their food was really good. There is a $5 cover where a lot of other places on Beale have no cover charge. But we wanted to eat and listen to the music. We had the gumbo- delicious and spicy! It was great

We really enjoyed our experience. The food was good. The service was slow,as a large group ordered ahead of us, but that worked in our favor as we were able to sit and relax and enjoy the traditional jazz music as long as we wanted!

Great place to escape the heat, eat and listen to music! Before you leave the club make sure you get your arm stamped (near the exit door) for free re-entry. Going back tonight!

Had a really nice salad at BBs today. While the music was good, it was very loud, making conversation nearly impossible, and we were on second floor. Went to restroom and the floor just seemed nasty along the way.

We could hear the music a block away, do we made our way to the doors. The staff greeted us immediately. We sat at the bar facing the stage with the intent of staying for a couple of minutes to listen... since we had dinner reservations else where...we never made our dinner!
