Great music!

This place to me was the star of Beale street. The decor was killer. The band was amazing and we had a great time.

BB Kings is a great place to Eat and also listen to music . At night it is live music but during the day it is on screen music but still good vibes. The ribs there were to die for and catfish was excellent as it was the first time eating catfish, a definite spot to visit and eat.

Stopped in Memphis overnight, had a terrific time visiting the sites and hanging out on Beale Street. We were never seated, only 2 in our party, while larger groups that came in after us with no reservation were seated, because the waitress stated she wanted a larger group (assuming to get a bigger tip). After about an hour, we requested... More

If you only heard of BB king through his music and then found out there was a club on Beale st, the blues capital of the world, what would you expect? Well it's not here lol. I expected blues music, there was none. I expected some blues history, there was none. I expected some BB King memorabilia , there was... More

Loved, loved, loved this place. We were in Memphis for one night on our way to Panama City Beach. We tried to get on a dinner cruise but they were booked. While there we asked a local where to go for dinner and they recommended BB Kings. So glad they did, food was excellent, music was great and staff was... More

This place was great, my husband and I loved the atmosphere. Live music, a small lunch and a couple of drinks. The servers were very friendly. Later we went back. The music was the best, the floor was crowded and people dancing the night away, loved it.

A must-stop spot on Beale for live music. The 10-piece band had the whole house rocking with pop hits and the hits of yester-year. Usually a $5 or $10 cover charge, but well worth the price of admission.

Went to have a drink after taking the Mojo tour. The band was great. I liked the fact it was non smoking They didn't let you smoke electric ones either. Atmosphere was great bathrooms were ok not the best but did have the essentials.

I just ordered drinks but other people's food looked and smelled awesome. I was there during the day and families were there and everything was appropriate for all ages. Great music - served drinks in plastic?????

We loved this club. The band that was playing was so good that we stayed a few extra hours just to enjoy the music. We wanted the whole Beale Street experience so we went a few other places and none of them measured up. The wait staff wasn't particularly attentive, so we went to the bar ourselves, but that didn't... More
