“Is this a club or restaurant????”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

BB Kings has a live band in back which you must pay a $10.00 fee to enjoy. I went there and was SHOCKED to see a wedding reception going on. Okay I get it a cheap alternative, but kids were everywhere. To top it off during the bands breaks the wedding party used the microphone to complete the wedding toast, announce cutting the cake and the first dance. I will NEVER go there again its a club according to the name but management states its a restaurant . My question why must I pay to go in a restaurant with a live band that's set up like a club and allows kids in. No morals B B King in West Paln.

“Do not go!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

BB King's is clearly a drinking place. It's a place for people to sit and drink at the bars. I went there with my family before a movie. We got there and there were 5 waitresses just standing around chatting amongst themselves when we walked in. The place was nearly empty an dthere were plenty of empty tables. They sat us directly next to the crying baby. We asked to move our table and they moved us. We sat down and instantly realized the staff did not care about anything whatsoever. We waited 20 minutes and nobody said anything to us. They would walk right past us and look at us. They never once stopped. We got up and left. Terrible service! Don't go.

“A happy camper”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

If you have not been there or have not been there recently you need to go there. The food is delicious, appetizers are tasty, the drinks are thirst quenching, the ever changing music is great. From the tribute bands to the BB King Allstars with Roscoe Martinez you will sing and dance the night away while you enjoy the friendly atmosphere.

This place is great to see some of the finest musicians around! Great dance floor... Good drink selection.. only draw back is the $20.00 per person cover charge

“The waiters are the worst people you will ever meet.(Cameron)”

I would never recommend this place to anyone. This franchise brings grace to the artist its named after. Food quality is horrible and waiters are mean.
