A word from B.B. King's Blues Club - Orlando
BB King's Blues Club is located in beautiful Point Orlando (walking distance from the convention center). EAT Our Menu offers a variety of the South's most delicious comfort food influenced by flavors from New Orleans all the way to the Mississippi Delta, including authentic Memphis-style BBQ. 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.

DRINK Step up to any one of our four full-service bars for an assortment of beer, wine and mixed drinks. Sip any one of our top ten specialty drinks or shooters and take home a BB King's souvenir glass

    This is a great venue where you can eat great food and enjoy live blues and R & B in a fun-filled friendly atmosphere. The live music is really top shelf. I recommend this to anyone in Orlando who wants to have a great time! Get there a little early as the parking garage can get a little crazy!!!!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 6/26/2010
    The food was good. The ribs were sweet with a little kick to them. The music wasn't too loud if you get a table towards the back and away from the speaker. The time before we were right next to the speaker and it was unbearable. The service was great. The only downfall of our experience was that the a/c was broken in our section of the restaurant and it was terribly hot. Everyone was fanning themselves. Other than that, a ton of fun with great live music and pretty good food too!

    Being that it was my first time in Orlando and my first time at B.B. King's Blues Club, my sister and I had a great time. It was very entertaining. I enjoyed the music and the meal. When I am in Orlando again, my family and I will make sure we stop in for a bite to eat and some down home music as well.

    I knew this was a Blues Club/Restaurant, but what I didn't realize was that you needed to pay a cover charge to eat. $10/person. We we seated right in front of a speaker, and it was VERY loud, particularly when the female singer was belting into the microphone. Wanted to stay longer, but just couldn't with the noise level where it was. Dance floor needs to be larger.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 6/1/2010
    B.B. King's Blues Club Orlando was a great experience. The house band was some of the most talented performers I've seen in a long time. I saw B.B. along with Buddy Guy a couple of years ago near Savannah, GA where we live. His restaurant atmosphere, food, drinks, house band and gift shop all deserve the name that hangs outside the door. I would love to open a restaurant here in Savannah for B.B. King.

    We loved the music! It was fantastic. To be fair about the food we didn't go there to eat thing we would normally have. We tried the fried pickles and collard greens, which were not to our liking. However, we had a free coupon for the pickles and the waiter was kind enough to take off the collard greens from our bill, which we left him a very nice tip for doing so. We did like the catfish, which was something we never tried as well. So, it was an interesting evening filled with excellent service and great music!

    The most fun we had in Orlando! The music and atmosphere was fantastic. Food was average and wine list is very limited (compared to what we are used to in CA)but the energy and fun atmosphere makes up for it. Other patrons were fun, friendly and very welcoming to us "out-of towners". We will definitely visit BB King's again the next time we are in Orlando.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/8/2010
    This was my 3rd visit to BB Kings. We had a party of 25 people and end up leaving early because the sound volume of the All star band extremely too loud. We were unable to talk, laugh or enjoy the atmosphere unless we were screaming at the top of our lungs to say 1-2 words. Not to mention, there was only 1 server for our table which made the service very slow. We still had a good time but would have stayed til closing if we could talk, dance and enjoy each others company.

    The entire staff treated our party of 4 like we were lucky to be having a meal there. The waitress was horrible, constantly disappearing and needing to be chased down. She only had 2 tables and was more interested in chatting with the other staff in the gift shop. The Blues Band playing was okay, but the speakers need to be tuned because the high notes practically split your ears. On the good side, the ribs were tasty, and would have been better if she would have brought that 2nd beer I asked for to go with them!

If you wanted to relax and justcheck out the show, ok. if you wanted to dance and shake it up a bit well, ok. If you just wanted to go out on the patio and enjoy some conversation with a little background music, ok And of xourse you could just mix it up through the evening all with good food and beverage at you beck and call.

    Gumbo appetizer and Strawberry Shortcake dessert were excellent. Main entrees left much to be desired. Catfish seemed undercooked (not flaky) and Chicken Fried Chicken was not what I expected. Music was great, although we didn't expect to be charged a separate cover charge to hear a band we never heard of playing INSIDE the restaurant where we were already spending money for dinner.

With that being said, I would not recommend the restaurant for dining, but more so for relaxation and fun.

    The big problem I often see at B.B. Kings is that people will stand around on the dance floor or sit on the stage which gets in the way of people who are trying to dance. They also bring drinks on the dance floor and it spills which is an accident waiting or possible lawsuit. The waiters have been told but don't try to do anything to assist.
