I've eaten here a number of times and always had a good experience. This place is convenient if you're in Old Town and the decor is interesting.

This wasn't my first and probably won't be my last visit to King Street Blues. The biggest advantages to dining here are there's something for everybody on the menu, the reasonable cost of dining and I've never been served anything other than an ice cold beer. The downstairs is a tight fit; pretty much a small bar and a few... More

Loved this place...the artwork alone is worth stopping in for, but the food was great too. Grilled tilapia sandwich was my pick. Try the hushpuppy appetizers with remoulade sauce. Yum!

Recently went to King Street Blues for dinner with our two kids for the very first time. Fabulous meals all around and very friendly and helpful service. Our waiter, Derek, was on point when it came to knowing the menu and offering his input on options. My husband had the jambalaya penne which was suggested by Derek and there were... More

King Street Blues has a menu with some variety to satisfy a variety of people. Casual atmosphere with interesting decor add to the experience. The food and service were both good and the prices were reasonable.
