  • "For such a small venue, the music is entirely too loud. We couldnt talk to each other & the waitress couldnt hear us nor could tge bartender, unless we screamed. Had a headache after 10 minutes. And its too tight in there, maybe they should eliminate some tables because you can barely walk in there."

  • "When booking ask for a balcony table as they have best view of the stage and bands. The food was good and the drinks kept coming. "

  • "What a great place to go for a meal, a drink, or both. Great music surrounds you whatever you go there for. Good atmosphere & service. If you do eat, remember there is no cover on a late return. Just make sure you get your hand stamped! We were made welcome, our table was ready & the food arrived real quick & was delicious!"

  • "The service was great and the music went beyond great with Will Tucker's band. We had perfect seats to watch the show and enjoyed a Sweet 16 game on TV at the same time. Half of our table watched the game while the other half watched Will and his band. The food was very good. It was pouring outside so a lot of people crowded in. But we had just the amount of room we needed to get up and watch the game or head to the restroom. Every employee from the ones at the front door to the wait staff were cordial and strived to please."

  • "The restaurant is really a live music venue the offers a large menu of bar food, southern fried foods and BBQ. The meals my wife and I had the two recent nights we were at BBK's to hear the phenomenal, Will Tucker, were bla in flavor and not at preferred serving temps. We did envoy the BBQ nachos with shredded pork. Could serve 3-4 as appetizer. As above, the blues bands are excellent and fun. It's on Beale Street and that's why you're there. Have fun!"

  • "A good dining experience in a lively setting. Quality of ribs first class. Music of excellent standard. Not all tables well positioned for good views of band, but as evening progresses you can move tables. A very good, lively night out!"

  • "We made reservation for a Sunday night, glad we did. The food was amazing. The serever was a little distracted. My dinner came out with a pile of french fries, which I didn't not order. When the server made her way back to our table she said they were out of both sides that I did order. I would think she would ask for a different choice, but no. The bands were good but a little loud for dinner time, not able to hold a conversation. Thats okay for after 9:00, but not at 6:00. Will reconsider dinner and just cocktails as an option."

  • "First time using open table and was very impressed with our seating arrangement. We had out of town guests and they were really impressed with the food, service, and the music."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "If you like R&B, bar food and lots of ambiance, B.B. King's Blues Club in Memphis is a good place to start. Service was friendly and competent, although we were under the impression that another server would have helped. Food was what to expect from a place like this, but it was well prepared, tasty and the portions were not overwhelmingly huge. The band was good and the music was not so loud that you couldn't have a conversation. The only thing we didn't really appreciate was someone walking around during the performance trying to sell CDs with the band's music. Should be done in a different manner. Prices were fair. Nothing extraordinary, but a good value."

  • "My wife and I decided to dine here on our date. The restaurant was packed! We were taken to our seats upon arrival on the upper level overlooking the stage , which was great. The only blip we encountered was when we sat down , we waited for 15 mins and no one had acknowledged us to take our order. I finally got up and went to find a waiter. After that we were served promptly considering how busy it was. Also it was pricey!! For two ppl we spent over 100 dollars before tip . 5 beers, 4 shots, appetizer, two entrees. Overall we had a good time and would consider dining here again."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Been here twice, food is ok, hit with a $5.00 cover charge just to get in to dine and listen to music. Crowded and load. Don't go if you expect to try to carry on a conversation. Tables tightly packed, drinks expensive. To me is over rated. Don't plan on going back again, others on Beale St over more."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We planned a night out to enjoy great music and food. We got it. BB King's always delivers. The BB King Allstars are amazing. We enjoyed a wonderful bowl of Gumbo and Shrimp and Grits. The service was a little slow but we were not in any hurry. Over all an enjoyable evening."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Music (albeit good) was too loud and the customers even louder, i.e. did not appreciate the artists although it's supposed to be a music club. Had reserved table requesting for good visibility and close to the stage (being a blues fan). However, got table in the far end of the club with poor visibility and mostly listening to neighboring table's party. Without table reservation we could have chosen much better (for visibility/listening) seating."

  • "This was my family and my first visit to Memphis. I'd heard about Memphis style ribs, BB's was the first place I wanted to try in Memphis and after having them for the first time at BB King's, they instantly became one of my top favorite foods! I'm from TX so I know BBQ and i was not disappointed with Memphis style BBQ at BB's. I would highly recommend this place to ANYONE and I will definitely be back for the Summer. The live music was amazing, the blues hit home, especially after rocking out a Stevie Ray Vaughn favorite, and the overall experience was extremely satisfying. The menu offers delicious choices of meats, burgers and fish with tasy and fresh sides that comliment the entree. The staff was also friendly, cheerful and welcoming."

  • "Crowded, noisy - don't even attempt conversation. But be there for the music - listening and/or dancing!"
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "Great southern food (from a Northern's perspective) with vibrant entertainment. We sat in the balcony and had a great view of the stage. Would recommend to friends and family if passing through Memphis where Biel street is a "Must See"."

  • "Disappointed that Will Tucker was not there as listed on your web site when I made the reservation. I really like him."

  • "By using Open Table I was given a table immediately, even though the testaurant was very busy. Everything was superb. I will use Open Table as much as possible, it is great. I wish more restaurants would sign up with Open Table. This concept would definitely enhance a restaurant's exposure and enhance a customer's experience with the restaurant. Thank You BB King's for the excellent experience and Thank You Open Table for making my experience happen."
