My kids, teens, love blues and jazz. Unfortunately "that" music has be relegated to bars and clubs that don't let anyone under the age of 21 in. Biscuits and Blues was an exception. The early show is all ages. The act, Eddie Neon, that played, while not nationally known, was good. The cover was $15 per person which was on... More

The woman at the reception obviously wishes she were elsewhere and is very unfriendly, sometimes rude. Food is greasy and nothing special. They do have good musicians from time to time but the low ceiling means acoustics are poor. I do not recommend this palace.

It's a great place for live music. It's small and intimate. I was worried it would be too loud but they control the volume for such a tight space. If you're going expecting great food you might be disappointed. Stick to the basics, like fried chicken, and you will be happy. I must say, however, that the Caesar Salad I... More

The food is decent. i wouldn't call it outstanding but matched with the entertainment, you are guaranteed to have an enjoyable evening. The atmosphere is casual and jeans are not a problem.

We decided to spend our last night in San Francisco here, we went in, venue was nice, low ceiling, intimate. We were put on a wonky table. We eventually got water and then eventually (20mins) later were asked what else we'd like to drink, we ordered our food, starters and mains at the same time and were asked if we'd... More

Other reviewers would have you expect a food apocalypse here, that was not our experience. The food was actually much better than I expected, as was the service. Catfish fingers were warm and crispy with a nice breading and decent dipping sauce. gumbo was also acceptable. We saw Sista Monica here, the show was very enjoyable although not very long,... More

Attended a fundraiser for musician Harvey Mandel - the personnel were attentive, caring, respectful and accomodating. Harvey's all star guests looked and sounded tremendous here in this cozy venue. Efficient service, pleasant bar, wonderful sound system - and excellent sightlines from everywhere! Drinks wonderful; also had fried calamari - both plentiful and tasty. The venue was flexible and helpful in... More

We enjoyed the Pat Travers Band for a live performance. The venue is fun .. although rather stuffy and hot .. they should have the air conditioning available even on cool nights with the bodies packed so tightly in the small room. Loved though, that it was a small room and the sound filled it to the brim! We were... More

Biscuits and Blues is a great small venue to hear live music. The food is wonderful with a nice variety of selections. The waitstaff were attentive and friendly. The band, Jason King Live, was outstanding! Great evening with friends!

NOTE: There is a cover charge just to eat dinner. If someone is performing, you're paying cover. Now we know. We left and went to another restaurant.
