You will find there is something for everyone from our lip-smacking ribs to fresh grilled salmon, fried dill pickles to gumbo from the bayou, and finish it all off with a helping of warm banana bread pudding served with a southern comfort caramel glaze. It's good for the soul.

    I love the energetic atmosphere. The Band is always awesome!! Great musicians and singers. However the food needs a facelift. I had the chicken tender appetizer and steak. Neither had seasoning and was bland. my husband had crab cakes and salmon. The crabcakes were fair and the salmon was bland. I will go back for the band alone, but have dinner someplace else before I arrive.

    Went here for dinner and blues, had reservations for 7:45pm upon arriving was informed there was a $5 cover charge for the band after 7:30. Wish I would have known that. The food was mediocre and the band was ok. Will not be back.

    We have had a time share here for years and this was the first visit to BB Kings Blues Club. It was awesome and food was excellent. Service fast and friendly and staff knew menu and made great recommendations. The All Star Blues Band was really great and entertaining. All ages were there, from young families to seasoned citizens and the atmosphere was awesome. Used the valet to park the car. Worked great. Every time we come back to Orlando we are coming to this great food and entertainment spot.

    The Shaun Rounds and BBKing house band is the best live band I've heard in a long time. We have a family of six and I was craving some soul food. Sometimes with a big family with teens and a toddler, it's a challenge to find quality service. Everything was great. The food, the service, and the music was authentic.

    We have been here a few times. Food is very good, but a bit on the heavy side. Price is reasonable but the best time to go is in the evening when live blues are played on stage. Otherwise it's a good meal, but the live music makes the evening.

    ❤️❤️ Ok a guy who loves soul,blues and jazz this is an the best place!! The BB King all star band rocked the house down my wife and I had a blast and we will be back I'm Irish and she is Mexican so we can say its worth it the cover charge was $5 because it was before 10pm I did not mind it all. The band played till about 12 and they kept you going so if you are or not married and need a night away go its worth it!!!

    We needed to make dinner reservations for a group of 7 for a birthday dinner party to take place within 24 hours. We made arrangements long distance (on opentable.com) as we would be traveling that day and wanted dinner the next evening. Making the reservation only took a few minutes and went extremely smooth. I would definitely use this site again for any future reservations.

    This was my parents and sister's first time at BB Kings and once again it didn't disappoint. They got the ribs and chicken dinners and they all took home doggie bags as they portions were very large. The blues band was great and the overall vibe was great as usual. I would recommend BB Kings to anyone looking for good food and live music.

    We've been to Orlando thousands of times but, this is the first time we've ever launched out and tried something new. We're tired of the hype of advertising that always let us down but, this time it was well worth it. Valet parking in such a busy area was only $10 and that was just the beginning of what turned out to be a fabulous evening. The catfish nuggets was delicious; to start, I had shrimp and grits, husband had the catfish platter and son had their famous burger. The band really brought the evening to a blast! The atmosphere was conducive to those looking for a great time with a group of great people. If you have the chance to visit and you love the blues, good food and friendly people; stop on buy and tell them Monica sent you.

    Never in my years of dining out with reservation have I ever had to pay a coverage charge to eat at a restaurant until to my surprise BB Kings. The staff was miserable from the host staff to the food servers. I was very disappointed with my experience. They should let customers know up front that there is a cover charge. Food was OK at best My wife enjoyed her fried chicken and my ribs where to dry. Apps were good Fried pickles and loaded potatoes chip much like nachos. Desert was tasteless. Music great.
