“Let the music play”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

we were lucky to enjoy the King Bees during our meal. They are a great group, sang lots of classics. Our server big Jeff was a very cool guy. The food was pretty good. Great fried pickles, catfish bits and wings. the shrimp Louie was huge and there were 6 JUMBO shrimp--yum, yum. The place was full, the band was hot, the server was cool and the food was good-what more can 1 ask for?

“Loved Memphis Joe's band Thurs. 5-7:30.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

AS older tourists we found we couldn't handle the loudness of many groups later at night. We spent 4 nights on Beale St and were lucky to find music to our taste. The club is what I would want - old authentic but well maintained. A true blues club. We loved Joe's music, and his commentary and jokes. Wish we could have found him earlier in our trip.

“GREAT PLACE!”

This was an awesome place to enjoy lunch. The atmosphere and the very friendly staff made it that much better. Would have really enjoyed if a blues band had been playing. Will go back.
