great lunch

We took advantage of the 2 for 1 drink special while eating our lunch. My margarita was very good as was my hamburger. It is hard to get restaurants to cook hamburgers to my liking of medium rare but it was cooked that way for me this time. Waiter was very friendly and took pictures for us.

The 'house' band was fantastic and we really enjoyed our evening. The food was fine, and better than at many other music stops in Nashville (where in most places, it's really not about the food). Our server was very attentive without hovering. Drinks were excellent, and we enjoyed the paintings on the walls. There were many large family groups, ranging... More

Had the "private room" reserved in the back for our party of 15+. Nothing private about it, was really dark and look like never used. Bacon burger was really good. Others in the group had ribs but no one seemed to like them. Can't hear the music from this area. Music was good. BB passed away a few days prior,... More

After a busy day of meetings my biz partner and I were downtown Nashville looking for a cold beer and some live music. We sat at the bar and tried a local beer (Chicken Wing) which was nasty. Don't try this stuff. But the barkeeper was nice so we hung around listening to a lounge trio. In Nashville, even an... More

We stopped at BB King's for a drink, appetizers and music in the middle of the day. We were not disappointed. We enjoyed the music and all the appetizers! It's a good location and a fun place to hang out for a few hours.

We stumbled upon this club on our first night there. We had a couple of drinks and supper. While the service could have been a little better, we still had relatively good service. The food we ordered was good as well. I highly recommend the loaded chips better than nachos! The band that was playing while we were there was... More

I had a group dinner for work while in Nashville. We made a reservation for 24. We showed up on time and the table was ready. I should have known we'd have a problem when only one waiter showed up to help us out. I'm all about being forgiving if someone is busting their tail to get things done and... More

While you can eat & drink here , the food is the last reason to visit BB King's . The primary reason is the Blue's bands they feature . The food is normal pub food and not bad . The service , it is very good . The $5.00 cover charge is well worth the price . An easy way... More

My boyfriend and I were recently in Nashville and looking for a fun and delicious place to eat and we found it here. We had reservations at 8, just as the band was coming on. I had the roasted chicken with garlic mashed potatoes and collard greens while he had a rack of ribs with baked beans, cole slaw and... More
