“Come for the music not the rubbish food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

Overpriced food and drink even when factoring in paying for great music. It's definitely the feel of rhe the "we dont care anymore, penny pinch" attitude. Great music but then, the music doesn't come off the menu.

“Great music and great food/drinks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We came as a big group, reserved a table right by the band. Music was great, a little loud since we were right beside them, but we still enjoyed it. The drinks were great!! Our server, can't rem. his name, was awesome. He picked out my cocktail, beer and dinner and I had no complaints! :) Would def. go back!

“Pretty Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

My husband and I went here, and were really looking forward to visiting and eating at BB Kings. It was just okay. We were told online that we would do better getting seated with a reservation, so we reserved at the only open time (according to the) at 4:15 which is way too early for us to eat, but we really wanted to go here. We got there, there were maybe 5 other people there. The food was just ok...they played a lot of music you wouldn't expect to hear at BB Kings, no blues, I did hear Led Zeppelin, which was kind of odd...

“Music was rocking.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

When the country is too much stop by here for some great blues. I hate paying a cover but well worth it. Plus the bartender gave us a voucher for no cover charge for our next visit. Stopped here 2 days out of our 4 in Nashville.

“Must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Popped in on a Friday lunchtime for a couple of pints. Got some great advice from Matt the bartender.
Returned later on and were lucky enough to get a table right in front of the stage for the house band, who were fantastic although perhaps a little more blues rarher than soul would have been appreciated.
Even though it was busy, service was faultless, and the quality and selection of local beers was commendable.
