Diner Reviews
  • "The food and music were great. Unfortunately our server was extremely slow and inattentive. I worked as a server for many years, so I understand how things work. We were return customers, but must say our last experience was better. We still had a good time...just took a long time to get food and drinks."

  • "In all I enjoyed my experience here but I thought the atmosphere was a little canned. I expected a little more closeness and coziness. The entire club is open and expansive...not a lot of musical memorabilia around. The stage area is very sterile. Food was good but not great. Felt a little rushed by the staff, not in an offensive way but I got the impression they wanted us to eat and go so they could seat another waiting party. Prices were good though and less than I expected."

  • "Was looking for a place to listen to live blues music while in Nashville for my birthday and my fiancé said she heard there was a B.B. King's restaurant in Nashville so we made a reservation online. We didn't have to wait at all when we walked in and we were instantly surrounded by amazing blues music. The food was ok but it was the performance that kept us there for hours until they were done. Definitely the place for blues lovers!!!"

  • "The ribs are fall off the bone delicious and hands down the best I've had in the Nashville area. The ambiance is great for dancing after dinner with loved ones."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Impressed with the food selections. Corn bread was awesome. House band rocked with mostly blues, but did mix in some pop covers / Motown selections which makes sense considering the locale and audience. We would have preferred a straight up Blues, but live music from a talented band is always good whatever genre they're playing. There is a lot of table turnover as is common on Music Row...we camped out since we're blues fans. Next time we're in Nashville we'll be hanging out at BB's again."

  • "This restaurant has great ambiance. A entertaining band. Service is a little slow but entertainment makes up for this flaw. The food is good and the audience is friendly. You can't help but to have a good time. You will leave singing and feelin good..."

  • "The food is good. The service was Ok. But worth going. Tthe stage is located so everyone has a great view. The music is not so loud that you have to yell at each other"

  • "This place had some GREAT music! The jazz was a great break from all of the other country music in Nashville. Only downside is that this place does not actually take reservations. This is a "preferred seating" list not a reservation. That was disappointing since I had a large party but otherwise the place was great! The waiter was a little slow but the good was very good!! Definitely will go back next time i'm in Nashville!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "The menu has some interesting options (fried pickles) and the food and service were both good. However, the true goal at this place is to enjoy the music and it definitely did not disappoint. Please be sure this is on your to-do list while in Nashville."

  • "We went to BB Kings to watch a friend perform. We were actually one week early, but, decided to stay and dine anyway. We were pleasantly surprised by the food and service. They have a big menu and will make the adjustments you need for a healthier and/or happier experience. This is not to imply their menu is unhealthy. They have numerous choices for everyone. The service was outstanding and, unlike many of the music venues in town, we could carry on a conversation and still enjoy the music. We returned one week later to see our friend perform and our experience was just as good as the first one. We will return and I plan on moving the restaurant into my lunch rotation."

  • ". Very noisy but it is on Beale so to be expected. Wet, not dry BBQ. So I'd you like dry not for you. Expect mess and not great service because busy. Cover charge if you just want a drink at night"

  • "This place was amazing. Took mom and mother in law there and they partied like it was 1995, lol. Although it was way pass there bed time they didn't want to leave. The band's was the boom. Love love love them."

  • "Your food is awesome. I always get the Salmon w/the creamed corn. Best dish I have ate anywhere. We are a every 3 month visitor and make a special point of always eating at BB Kings....VBS"

  • "The band was great. Our food was fantastic. Server was very friendly without being intrusive. Price was reasonable. Can't wait to go back. Make reservations with open table and walk right on in without waiting."

  • "While the food at BB King's was great, the portions reasonably sized, the waitstaff the best we've ever had... You go to BB's for the music. And we weren't disappointed. There's not a bad table in the house, we were at most 20 feet from the stage, the band performed with energy and a huge amount of talent. Not only WILL I recommend BB's to friends, I already have! And am planning a return visit myself whenever I go back to Nashville!"

  • "About the third time I have been to this location. Food was mixed but, pretty darn good. The pork bbq is the stuff! The entertainment is always top notch. I will BB back!!!"
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "We hoped to have dinner and talk before the band started. I called and they said there was only a keyboard player until the band, and implied that it would be low enough to talk. It was not. BUT- great attitude from the staff, great food, especially the friend catfish. We will continue to return, but only when we can book the back room if we need to talk."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "We enjoyed our experience. The food was great, but we had to pay a cover charge for the band, even though we just wanted to eat and leave."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "Was really looking forward to our first night in Nashville and this looked like a promising restaurant for a fun family night out. Service awful - she actually brought our starters after putting our main course on the table! Felt completely rushed - which I don't know why seeing as they weren't overly busy, there was no-one waiting for a table (although there were many available anyway) and the music was still playing so they weren't about to close. Never experienced such bad service before. Our waitress didn't have a clue how to space the timing and by the end she was driving us crazy coming over every minute when we were trying to listen to the music and relax. Very disappointing!"
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "I have always enjoyed my visits to BB King! However, I was a tad bit upset after driving 2 1/2 hours for dinner just to be told that I don't have a reservation, on a packed night! I even showed my email confirmation & all I got was "well we'll see what we can do". Well your only option that night was ...to find us seating! That was my boyfriends first time there & it was a surprise gone wrong!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Food was good, band was excellent. Disappointed that there was not a dance floor. Server was obviously overworked (someone must've called in or quit that night) but he did a good job juggling all the tables. My wife said she loved it and that's really all that matters."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Always a consistent good time! All-Star Band always gives an energetic performance. Service was excellent on this night."

  • "My date and I went to BB's on recommendation of a co-worker. We were not disappointed. Our waitress, Katy, was very attentive and accommodating. Have already advised some out of town guest that while they are here visiting, this will be one of the places to go."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "One does not go to BB Kings for the food but for the experience. The BBQ is just average, nothing special but the joint is fun and Nashville atmospheric. Also you had better like a noisy room and blues/rock music or skip the whole bit."
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "The Hostess staff were welcoming and helpful. They helped us to our reserved table where the location was pleasantly near the band. The food was amazingly prepared and the service was great, although she forgot our salads. We just smiled and ate our delicious meal. We danced, we ate, drank good wine, we listened to top notch music. It was a night to remember!!!"
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "I had specifically requested that we wanted to be centrally located between the bar and the dance floor with the stage in full view and that is exactly where we were seated."

    Dined on 1/14/2014
  • "I loved the live music but the food and the service on the other hand I didn't like. The food was over priced and didn't get a large amount of food for the price. I paid $30 for a meal and a cocktail and the cocktail was full of ice and when I told the waitress she didn't respond or anything. I had catfish and it was like catfish nuggest and a small when I say small I mean small cup of mash potatoes on the side. I would go back only for the music and the music only."

  • "We visited your location while in Nashville on Dec 30th - I had the opportunity of going to Buddy Guys Legends Blues club in Chicago and told my wife how great it was - I assumed BB Kings would be the same but we were totally surprised when we showed up and there was mostly Mo-Town music and No Blues - What a Shame - We went to BB Kings to Enjoy some Blues Music and all we got was a Mo-Town Show - Living close to Detroit we have Mo-Town music available to us anytime any day - It would have been nice to show my wife how cool it is to hear the Blues Live - Its unfortunate :( Service = We waited over an hour for Burgers and they weren't even cooked as we wanted them - But after an hour we needed to eat something. Again a really shame"

  • "Great southern food (from a Northern's perspective) with vibrant entertainment. One of the big perks is we have teen age children who are old enough to appreciate good music, but not old enough to enter a bar. The downtown Honkytonks are a "must see" in Nashville, BB Kings offers a forum where we could experience great music, my wife and I enjoyed a drink and teens were welcome."
