It's good for the soul.

    We enjoyed ourselves immensely. The service was good and timely. The food was excellent. My husband and I both had the ribs. They were perfectly cooked and the flavor was right on. We settled back after eating and enjoyed the band that was playing there that night, Mpire, who were excellent. The sound system was awesome. Clear, no distortion, not overpowering, perfect. Which considering the place is named BB Kings, was fitting, they should get the sound system and the music right, and they did. We will go back again next time we are in Orlando.

    I was upset I had to pay a cover charge to have dinner. I was never told if you arrived after 7:30 their would be a cover charge. Monday it was raining I got there at 7:15 and told them My guest was delay cause of the heavy rain and no umbrella. When my guest came they had to pay a cover charge. If it wasn't for the rain we would have left. We paid over $130 plus cover charge. I spoke to superior and was told he couldn't do anything cause it to cover the music. I have been to several restaurants and never have to pay extra to have dinner and music. I willn't be going back again. The food was so-so. the sweet potato fries was dry and full on sugar.

    The groups that played were awesome! The opener was a young band with talents of a much more experienced band. Wow, could he play! The house band was good with two lead singers with such range! Great energy and danceable music. Would have like a little more blues but selection was jumpin. Food was delicious and plentiful. Shooters were yummy. Good seating all around the stage and dance floor with balcony views too. Very nice. We will go again. Glad we made reservations.

    A group of us "boomers" had a fantastic night out that quickly took us back to the time when music was at it's best! The live band was incredible! The food was delicious and filling. We could not have had a better time anywhere else. Oh yeah....we were celebrating a couple of birthdays and we were having so much fun we forgot why we were there! :) We will return.

    This trip to the club was fantastic. It was a Saturday night and the club was packed as usual. Service was great and the food came out perfect. Of course, the main event is the music. The first band was new to me and they were OK. I've heard better but this 3 piece band was very good with a good singer. And again, as usual, the B.B. King All Star Bank brought the house down. One of the best bands I have ever heard and I've listened to many. They keep me coming back over and over again. Recommended to all that blues and soulful sounds of the 50's, 60's and 70's.

    This trip to B.B. King's was as expected. Great music, great energy and a wonderful night. Unfortunately, this trip was marred by the quality of the food. Usually a big hit with me, it didn't live up to that "wonderful" meal. My wife and I both had our favorite sampler plate for apps, which was "wonderful" and burgers for our main meal. The bread seemed stale and sandwiches seemed unusually sloppy. Hopefully this was a one time event. We will be again for the fantastic atmosphere and incredible music.

    Waitress was not friendly at all. When we told the manager that she was not friendly and the overall goal is to provide excellent customer service, he wasn't that friendly either. We were there to celebrate anniversary and birthdays, we were excited about the 8 hour drive to dine with BB king in orlando, but it was a total let down for my party of 8.

    I live in Boston, Massachusetts and came across your restaurant online. Each time I come I always bring the family for a night of dinner and live music. The environment is so friendly and welcoming. The kids love it and sing along with the band. FYI, most Bostonians pronounce the "r" sound. Those who done are in the minority. Sorry to break the stereotype. LOL. Thanks again!

    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.

    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.
