    We were given misinformation about how we could use our coupon. Our waitress was terrible. Our drinks were terrible. Our appetizersand dinners came out at the same time. We never were asked how our food was. It was a disaster. Also they played soul music not blues all night.

    We went to BB King's on Thanksgiving evening. My Husband had the filet mignon, our son had the grilled salmon and I had the traditional Thanksgiving turkey meal, complete with stuffing and cranberry sauce. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. The band kept us entertained while waiting for our food. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for great food and great entertainment!

    Had a great time the music was vibing. The food and specialty cocktails surprisingly on point. Enjoyed the fact that I was able to get a BB King Souvenir Glass with my specialty cocktail. Took in two Jazz sets one of which was the BB King House Band, the female vocalist could have stepped it up a notch. But other than that the scene was perfect.

    I usually don't give any establishment a bad review, however I have to say I was disappointed. We went there to hear the evening music and enjoy some food but there was no music The receptionist at the front told us there was music and we were seated near the stage. The band started to set up but never finished. Come to find out, after inquiring, the band had moved to the back area of the restaurant. They were playing away. It was too little too late since we were just about finished with our meal. Our food was good. So that's my tale of woe. I don't know if I would return.

    The live music here is great, but very loud. So if you want to talk to your table partner, request a table outside. The food was not very good, and the service was spotty at best. We will not return.

    Having experienced BB King's in Las Vegas my wife and I were excited to learn that we could eat there again in West Palm Beach. The Palm Beach restaurant was a major disappointment. Bad food, Bad sevice and an atmosphere that was nothing more than a weekend nightclub or should I say "meat-martket". No where near our experience in Vegas.

    We loved that BB kings had a dance floor, however the tables around it were so squished together that you couldn't move. and don't eat there after 9 o'clock because the kitchen gets so backed up that you wait 2 hours for your food to come out.and forget if your waiter has a large group to attend to because you'll never get service on refills on your drink. they also did not play a lot of blues music which we thought that was the reason for the Blues Club.

    Flew into west palm beach from california for a cruise. Read about your place in hotel magazine. Decided to try it and found it to be excellent in every way. We are in our 50s and raised up on bbking, so as a tribute to our parents, and since enjoyed it bought tshirts and will visit your spot in vegas next time were there.

    While the food was good, the service was at best, just acceptable. Dishes came out incorrect and items were missed off the plates. We had 2 orders of the Southern Fried Catfish and neither came with the remoulade and when we asked for some or some tarter sauce, they charged fifty cents. One of these plates came with a corn muffin, the other did not. Obviously, the kitchen staff or the server can't figure out if plates are correct before leaving the kitchen and when they aren't, bring them to the table incorrect. A salad was ordered and it was the wrong one, so that also had to be sent back.

    B.B. Kings is a great place to take the family for special night out to see quality live musicianship. There aren't any other places I know of in South Florida where I feel comfortable taking my kids (ages 11, 14, 16) to have a taste of Memphis BBQ (my favorite!) and hear a great band. Thank you to B.B. Kings for providing just such an atmosphere.

    We thought this was a good place to meet up with a group of friends who were in town. Their special dining offer of 2 4 $48.00 can't be beat ,the music throughout the night was fantastic and nice for dancing. Our server was really understanding about not rushing through the courses as we were there to catch up with one another as well as dine. Although, It was a bit loud when trying to carry out a conversation. The restaurant's location is ideal allowing you to walk around to shop, tons of other bars, or outdoor activities to enjoy other things to do.

    The food was very good and the band was terrific. However, we both found it to be very very loud. The white singer, whose name we never got, was equally as good as any black entertainer we have ever heard. He had all the right moves and a really good voice. However, once again, the music drowned him out on occasion. My boyfriend wears hearing aids and he turned them off,. LOL It was also very difficult to have a conversation at our table. Other than that, it was a good evening, good food and good music. we both enjoyed ourselves.
