    Great food, great music, with our reservation we waited less than five minutes to be seated. I had the chicken fried chicken with white cheddar mac & cheese and it was spot on all the way to the cornbread. The band as always was killer. The lead guitarist who we had heard seen before sat silent tonight. The band, "the rhythm section" was awesome and the drummer was the lead singer, so impressive. Good mix of blues, Motown, older and more recent rock. Even the wait staff was dancing great time!

    I booked a table for 12 at 7PM through Open Table a few weeks in advance. We arrived on time and waited ten minutes for the staff to set up a high top, we asked to be moved to a set of low tables that had been vacated when we arrived. The hostesses informed me they didn't actually hold tables or take reservations and what I had effectively done was a 'call ahead' and there wasn't a low table they could seat us at. They eventually saw the low tables we were referring to and relocated us. A very confusing and lackluster experience when you're making reservations and from out of town. The Friday night music was a series of two awesome blues bands. The food was affordable, but nothing to write home about. I'd say go for the atmosphere!

    The overall experience of BB Kings was very good, the food was qute fresh and in large portion. Reservations NEEDED to be made over 4 days in advance which was a bit of a struggle when much of the trip to nashville was based upon gonog where the music sounded good.

    We were coming to BB Kings to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. The staff was outstanding, from the hostess, to our waiter. We were seated quickly and the music and entertainment was the best we experienced in Nashville. our dinners were amazing. My ribs were the best I tasted while visiting the southern states. We were both delighted, and would recommend to friends. Definitely will return when we are in the Nashville area.

    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.

    We were in town for our 5th wedding anniversary. Having never been to Nashville we were relying on others to give us dinner ideas. Glad we reserved the table for 6pm. About 6:30-7:00 the place was PACKED! Can totally see why. The food was fantastic and the music was great. We will recommend to anyone we talk to!!! Side note, if you've never been to Nashville...GO! I'm from close to New York City and while NYC will always have my heart, Nashville touches the soul!

    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.

    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.

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!!!

    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.

    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.
