Really enjoyed the music we listened to here. Great sound system, easy viewing from many seats, and a band that got the place up and dancing. As with many of these clubs, it's hit or miss depending on who is performing but we had a great night. Didn't eat here just had a drink and thought service was fine.

We heard two bands there on a Saturday afternoon. They were both terrific. Great service too despite the crowd. We were so happy to find seats!

The band playing this late afternoon was very good. A lot of original music which was much appreciated. The food however was mediocre. We had catfish po boy, chicken cordon bleu, pasta primavera, BBQ burger and regular burger. They weren't bad, but they were nothing to write home about.

The food was overrated. But the atmosphere was really nice. The band was great! I would bring my 5 year old for the music. Very kid friendly!

Great venue for live blues. The quality of the music is great and the service never leaves you with an empty beer. I would recommend if you are looking for some live music.

On a tour of the Deep South and went along Beale Street & into BB King's. What can I say, except Outstanding! Admittedly we didn't eat, but the drinks & bar service was excellent and friendly and the place had a great vibe too...helped by the exceptionally talented Memphis Jones who was playing live. We had toured Sun Studio earlier... More

You cannot go to Beale Street without visiting this iconic music venue. The house band was superb and entertained from start to finish. There are bar snacks available and the drinks are reasonably priced.

Group of friends had a great night at BB King's. The band was excellent and the ribs were delicious. It is loud, just put tissue in your ears! We danced the night away. Very popular with locals and tourists alike. Highly recommended.

Have been so many times; always my first port of call in Memphis but it seems now more like a franchise operation, working to a formula. Booked for dinner so I could enjoy the night but no-one came near me - service is atrocious. The music is far more authentic and enjoyable when you visit juke joints in Mississippi towns... More
