A good way to Complete a day trip is with BB Kings. Great food , ( BBQ). Very friendly service and full bar with great music. This place is very huge inside and can handle large groups. A MUST see on your trip around town.

This resturant was recommended by the hotel we were staying. Upon arrival we were immediately seated. I ordered the buttermilk chicken that came with mac and cheese. My husband ordered the catfish dinner. The food wasn't that great, I asked did any bread come with the meal, and our waitress said that she could get some for me, I didn't... More

Stopped in for dinner. Live music was great. Service was great. I had the Carolina BBQ Salmon. One of the best salmon dishes I have ever had! My husband had the Chicken Fried Chicken. He was impressed with how moist and tasty it was. I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant.

Went for Dinner and before you can even get a Table you have to pay a 7.00 dollar cover charge for Band. Ok then Band plays 2 songs then take a Break. Think we heard 4 songs during dinner will not eat here again even though food was good.

Our last day in Nashville was the absolute hottest, most humid day all week. We decided to do some sightseeing via the Hop on/Hop off Greyline trolley. After finishing we were starving and sweating bullets. We went to BB Kings because there was no line and the a/c was pumping. I am so glad we ate here. I had the... More

Went here with a friend's wedding party for dinner and dancing. Food is OK nothing that special. Good range of beers available and excellent service. The house band were superb and got us all dancing away. Very fun night and well worth a visit. Nice to hear some black music in Nashville !

We had just taken the trolley ride around town and had smelled barbeque everywhere. We were hot and hungry when we stepped through the door. We walked in and were charmed by the art work and the ambience. Our waitress was quickly taking care of our need for cool beverages and much time to select our meal. While we waited... More

Wow, what a real surprise. Probably one of the best Lunches ever. Amazing Burgers and a crazy large menu to choose from. Extremely casual atmosphere, lots of folks enjoying lunch and unbelievable Blues from local talent. Great mid day break from the heat.

After walking around Broadway looking for live music and dinner (unsuccessfully) we walked up 2nd Ave. and WOW, what a nice surprise. We expected geat music but were surprised how delicious the dinner was. Fantastic! Our server in the bar area could not have been better.

To start this review, I would like to say that this restaurant and Hard Rock Cafe are pretty the only restaurants in Downtown Nashville (that's what I know) that accept people under 21 years old from 6 pm until 12 o'clock. Every day a new band is singing live on the stage. At the entrance of the restaurant you also... More
