Owner description: Since its' founding in 1995 Biscuits and Blues has made a home in the heart of San Francisco and has served hot biscuits and cool blues ever since. The venue is lucky to have some of the best Blues musicians in the world right here in the city, and has been honored time and time again as the Bay Area's #1 Blues club. For 20 years Biscuits and Blues has earned the respect of the Blues community and has been named America's #1 Blues nightclub by both the Blues Foundation and by the Bay Area Blues Society. Six nights a week Biscuits and Blues works to keep the blues alive with two shows a night. If it's Blues, they approve: Delta, Chicago, Texas, Boogie-woogie, Gospel, Old-time, Jazz, Brass and Soul. On any given night you'll find ribs on the grill, New Orleans-style Gumbo in the pot, and Creole Jambalaya hot off the pan. Biscuits and Blues also serves California wines, local microbrews and their signature selection of specialty cocktails from their full service bar.

Small, basement club. Musicians were brilliant and very experienced. Definitely worth going to. Good drinks (must order $15 worth) and good service, price about average for this type of thing.
Can feel a little less involving when it isn't quite as full, and there was an hour between sets, which is reasonably long.

We went to the early show and came early to have dinner first. It was a weekday and the place was not crowded. We had superior service, good food ( maybe not great but good), very nice wine and superb entertainment! They have a surprisingly good wine list, but hey, it's San Francisco.

We spent two nights recently at Biscuits and Blues viewing the Tommy Odetto Band and Earl Thomas and the Blues ambassador. Both of these blues bands were just awesome. The venue was great as it was very intimate and most any seat in the house was close to the stage and gave great viewing. The staff attending the crowd were also great taking great care of us. Thank you Sheamus. If you like " Great" blues and great service in a great venue. Go to this club as they will knock your socks off. The also have a great web site so that you can view and reserve upcoming artists. Thank you all those folks for providing us such a fabulous evening(s) of entertainment.

First time in San Francisco and had a great time there, listening to some awsome blues.
With such great music, who is capable of sitting down at the table completely apathetic? Well, the americans customers. I couldn't understand such a thing. Me and my friend began dancing and claping and we seemed like ETs there. These people must learn how to enjoy life.

If you love the blues, this is your club! Funky downstairs venue with a very good southern inspired menu. Ticket prices vary with the act. Dinner and the show mandatory on weekends can get pricey, but so much fun! Table for 2 a bit too small to sit and enjoy food.
