Description: This is the original B.B. King's Blues Club located in Memphis, Tennessee, the home of American blues music, legendary musicians, famous barbecue, historic landmarks and great basketball. With live entertainment every night of the week - from authentic blues to classic soul and rock and roll - and a menu full of Southern favorites, the club is a popular destination spot on Memphis' historic Beale Street. The club offers a full menu comprised of a variety of the South's most delicious comfort foods influenced by flavors from New Orleans all the way to the Mississippi Delta, including authentic Memphis-style barbecue. You MUST stop in for our award winning ribs that are some of the best in town - which says a lot for a town known for the world class barbecue! Open daily for lunch, dinner and late night meals, the intimate restaurant and live music venue has some of the finest local entertainment in town live on stage nightly as well as national touring performers.

Just had drinks and snacks. The real draw is the music, which that night featured the BB King All-Stars. Jam packed on a Thursday night. Lots of fun.

Stopped in for a few drinks and to listen to local blues singer. We saw Blind MIssissippi Morgan, who was really good! Waiter was not overly friendly and at first was hard to engage but in the end, we got what we needed shortly after needing it. Had awesome seats.

We booked our reservations to the BB King Blues Club weeks ahead and they were confirmed by email to us. When we arrived on March 26, we found out that the restaurant had given away our table to another party of four - despite the fact that the table had a reservation sign on it with our name clearly written on it. Initially, there was limited response and there was no doubt that the staff were hoping we would just go away. We did not want to have the four guests in our place moved as they had already started their dinner and after some back and forth and some shuffling around, they found us another table. Our server Dusty was excellent and the catfish, caesar salad and fried dill pickles were great and it was really Dusty who turned around our poor opinion of this place. Dusty is five star. Reservations doesn't get a star and please limit your expectations when making reservations for the club.
