Diner Reviews
  • "I had read several reviews that raved about the food, particularly, the bbq. I ordered the ribs, after people said how great they are. For $13.00 you get 4 ribs with hardly any meat on them, and two small sides (about 3 tablespoons of each). I only weigh 107 pounds so if I tell you the portions were small, trust me. The dinner was ok, nothing more than that. The live music was good and made the experience there fun. ALSO, beware that although we thought we had a firm reservation through Open Table, when we got there, they said that the reservations are never really firm, they just put you higher up on the waiting list. Open Table should look into this."

  • "Carl Stewart and his band were superb! The ribs and the grilled salmon were excellent, the service attentive but not intrusive. And how many places can you go where there is so much diversity and so much good will? White, black, brown; young, middle-aged, old; singles, couples, families with kids, parties, celebrations--everybody loves the blues! Smiles all around. We had a memorable evening, and will definitely be back."

  • "The shrimp and grits were awesome and don't skip dessert - the peach cobbler in the cast iron skillet was so good! The music was also very good. An all around great experience for our 5th anniversary."

  • "I have been here several times without making reservations. I was taking family out to celebrate birthday so to ensure that we would have a good table for dinner & show, I tried doing this on line. It was terrible seating and there was better seating available. After asking about three different people we were allowed to move, while those without reservations were given good tables (I asked them). I don't think that I will be using this service again."

  • " B.B. King's Blues Club was everything I was hoping for. This was my first trip to Nashville,so naturally I chose Open Table to find a great place to dine and see a show. I was not disappointed. The food was outstanding,the service was great and the live music was the best."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We chose to eat here because we wanted a good seat for the blues band. Probably wouldn't do that again. We were seated at a table right in front of the stage only to be told it was reserved and we had to move. Then we were shuffled around a bit more before being led back to the "reserved" table. The food was ok. Overall 4 stars because of our awesome server and the very talented blues band."

  • "Went in for dinner and a show by Bekka Bramlett. The food was great. The drinks were right on. The staff was so friendly. We had an amazing time. I would go 7 nights a week if I could handle it! If you're looking to have a good time, nothing will hold you back here. If you're looking for a decent meal in a nice place, they can do that too. This place is great!!!"

  • "I WANTED TO GIVE MY AUNT AND UNCLE A SPECIAL NIGHT (ANNIVERSARY), SOMETHING THAT THEY CAN REMEMBER AND BRAG TO THEIR FRIENDS IN CALIFORNIA, AND IT WORKED! THE BAND WAS ON POINT, AND GRANTED OUR REQUEST FOR THE ANNIVERSARY COUPLE. THEY ENJOYED THE NIGHT OUT AND ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT IT! THE FOOD WAS GOOD AND THE SERVER WAS VERY POLITE AND CHECKED ON US CONTINOUSLY, WHICH IS RARE TO FIND, MOST OF THE SERVERS YOU WON'T SEE UNTIL THEY HAND YOU THE BILL. THANK YOU FOR A NIGHT WE ALL WILL REMEMBER AND REVISIT!"

  • "Tourists from Canada, great experience, great food, catfish was cooked perfect. Well air conditioned, service very prompt considering the place was packed. Found it a little loud at times, but, it's a blues restaurant and everyone is involved."

  • "B.B. King's Blues Club in Nashville was on my 'must try' list. I knew it was a tourist stop but heck, I was a tourist. Making the reservation was easy and recommended. We were seated quickly. The band was just about to get started when we ordered our drinks. It was a pretty fun spot so far. My wife ordered a steak and I wanted to try the ribs. It took a while to get our beers but it was fairly busy. The music was good, the drinks were good, BUT THE FOOD WAS NOT. The only thing good that we ordered were the hush puppies. So I recommend this place for a few beers, good music, and some appetizers to start off your night to hit other spots around town."

  • "As one might expect from a restaurant with this name, the live music was fabulous. The place is loud! The food is quite good and the servicewas both friendly and helpful"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "I rarely drink & this drink had so little alcohol in it that I couldn't taste it much less even get a slight buzz. At $10.99 this was very overpriced. I thought I was getting a $5.00 special. There was no option if I didn't want the souvenir glass. I didn't even make it out the door with the glass. Food was great, but noise was too loud & this drink was a rip off."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "The band was outstanding and food okay. Fried pickles were fried too hard, however the meal was not bad. Overall we had a good time."

    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "While the food is very good with interesting choices on the menu, the art work is unique with paintings of famous musicians throughout and the service is warm and friendly the most memorable thing about BB King's in Nashville is the music. But then that is what Nashville is all about. We had a great time at BB Kings."

  • "If you like volume and great food, this is the location. It was difficult to order, but the music was worth the annoyance."

  • "The restaurant has sporadic lighting. Our table was so dark that we could barely read the menu. Also we ordered a salad to share. Most good restaurants split the salad on two plates. They served the salad on one plate plus a second plate."

  • "First class evening at B.B. King's Nashville. The music was awesome(which was why we went there!). The sound, early during dinner time, was perfectly subdued and later was appropriately much louder. Food was very good and service was excellent. We'll definitely go again on our next Nashville trip. Couldn't have enjoyed it more!"

  • "Decided to check it out on a recent business trip to Nashville. Went for an early dinner and the had very good entertainment. The band did not perform blues at that time, but Pop and some classics. Was very good. Food was very good. Mostly Barbeque fare. Would definitely come back. "

    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "I am not a fan of BB King Blues but love the Blues and Blue Grass and Country. The crowd was rather scrufty, grubby and bored. The loudness hides the lack of musical talent. No one was talking at their tables because it was too loud. Half full of people, most were groups of men, couples maybe 40%. Call it a loud dive. BB King always played too loud so I feared this would be the case. Went because a friend who must be deaf said you gotta go there. Beer better than their music. Ribs get a B, good service. Went on a Sunday night."

  • "Visited on a Friday Night at 5:15. Had a family gathering who were meeting for the first time so we wanted to sit where we could converse. Requested to sit in the back room, but apparently all the rooms were reserved and we couldn't be accommodated even though the rooms were all empty. Had to leave to find a quieter restaurant. "
