All-star band with BB's drummer always makes for a great night. Food is good. Great place to go for a party or birthday celebration, business entertainment, etc. Always a good time.

I have gone to Tennesse 6 times now for business. No matter what restaraunt or club/bar we try, we always want to go to BB king's by the end of our trip. The house band is one of the best I have seen. Simply put, they are Great! Food is surprisingly good. I usually do not eat at clubs because... More

This place has great music & yes it can be loud however in my experience all of downtown Nashville becomes loud when the sun goes down! It's what I love about this town. Music is everywhere and this place is no exception. Some of the best! Food is decent but I go here for the sound.

Carl Stewart. He's the lead music group appearing at BB King's. He's the only real reason to go here. While the food is okay and the service is okay - the music performance by Carl Stewart is outstanding. Carl Stewart. Service is competent but they don't show up very often - order the larger beer so you have a beverage.... More

The BBQ Salmon is excellent. I also had 4 bones of ribs added. I am glad I didn't have the ribs as the main course. They are not as delicious as I expected. Service was good, entertainment and atmosphere was excellent.

This was our first dinner in Nashville and it was a nice experience. The musicians were very good. The crab cake appetizer was quite good I thought but the brisket I had for the main was only ok. It was quite expensive for the food but take it with the music and the value is there.

We have been both times we have been to Nashville in the last couple years. The service wasn't phenomenal but it is a big clubby busy place. Our servers are always polite. The food is quite good. I had meatloaf this time and I like it, and I am admittedly a bit of a meatloaf snob. It had some nice... More

was here during bowl game time, menu looked good, went in for lunch. Server greeted us very politely and timely, after that it went downhill rapidly. Although not her fault, restaurant was totally understaffed seeing there were 60,000 people in town for the game. Server was running around taking care of to many tables, a manager came to our table... More

The food was terrible. The french fries were very spicy and that was not mentioned on the menu. Even when my plate when untouched, the server never asked if there was a problem. The sliders had stale bread. I would not go back..
