Description: BB King's Blues Club is located in beautiful Point Orlando (walking distance from the convention center). EAT Our Menu offers a variety of the South's most delicious comfort food influenced by flavors from New Orleans all the way to the Mississippi Delta, including authentic Memphis-style BBQ. You will find there is something for everyone from our lip-smacking ribs to fresh grilled salmon, fried dill pickles to gumbo from the bayou, and finish it all off with a helping of warm banana bread pudding served with a southern comfort caramel glaze. It's good for the soul. DRINK Step up to any one of our four full-service bars for an assortment of beer, wine and mixed drinks. Sip any one of our top ten specialty drinks or shooters and take home a BB King's souvenir glass

“Great venue, amazing ribs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Myself and my girlfriend popped in to check the place out and get a small bite. It was early in the day so not many in the venue. The lay out of the venue is brilliant, and I'd love to return there for a gig. Instead of stuffing the stage down the back of the main area it's right in the middle, with the tables arranged infront and around the stage with a small 'dance floor' in front. Great idea, meaning nobody can hide down the back and instead you get an intimate feel in quite a spacey venue.

Anyway, we didn't see any gigs here, so I can only really comment on the food and service, which was excellent. I got the half portion of ribs, and we shared a portion of the Over the Top chips.

The ribs were meltingly delicious, very meaty and literally fell apart, the sauce was especially sweet and packed full of flavor. The beans that came with the ribs were also delicious, proper home made baked beans with a smokey flavour, worked amazing with the sweet BBQ ribs.

The Over the Top chips were amazing. My girlfriend ordered these but I ended up scoffing most of them. Home made warm chips (crisps as we call them in Ireland!), covered in blue cheese, balsamic reducion and truffle oil. Truely delicious and very moreish with the tang of melted blue cheese and the warmth of the truffle oil and some sticky sweet balsamic reduction to round it off.

My girlfriend got the sliders, and they were deliciously sweet and juicy.

Service was excellent too, not too pushy like you might find in most American restaurants.

“BEST HIDDEN SECRET”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

My hubby and I absolutely loves this place. We went there in November 2012 and we so enjoyed it, we did not want to leave. The BB Kings All Star band is the BEST. They kept us moving and grooving the entire net. The food was delicious as well. I had the soul sampler for dinner but I was enjoying the music so much that I did not really eat anything. Their drinks are awesome as well. What I really like is the fact that is an family place, you can bring your kids. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND BB KINGS ORLANDO. If you go before 9:00 p.m. the entrance fee is $5.00, after 9:00 it is $10.00..FYI

“Great Food & Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Arrived at the restaurant not expecting to pay a small 'cover charge' but was well worth it. The atmosphere (band and dancing) was great. The food was even better. Although this is a chain type establishment, we could tell the food we received was made with love. Well worth the trip and I hope to visit the place again next time I'm in Orlando.

Great music, good food, great atmosphere, child friendly !!
Had a fantastic time. Bands were truly excellent !! Would definitely come back, but next time, we'll book in advance to have the best view of the live bands ie in the top floor.
Overall a nice evening complete with good food and fabulous live music.

“B.B.'s gives me the BLUES”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We went there because we had a restaurant.com certificate to use. They were having some kind of concert -and- by the way, a $5.00 cover charge to get in. I asked if the restaurant.com certificate would cover the admission fee on our bill. The dude says " we don't take those tonight"! I got the BLUES and we ROLLED! Won't be back brother!
