    So glad we choose BBKs to host our son's college graduation dinner. We were looking for a lively place to eat as a party of 12 with great food, atmosphere, and convenience on our travel route. Great service, food and surroundings... located in City Place in WPB. Family from out of town really enjoyed themselves. Definately recommend this place, servers also extremely friendly - even held our reserved tables beyond time limit as we were running late due to ceremony length. Wish we could have listened to live band that evening.

    the hostess was rude and totally unprofessional and put a damper on the whole evening. We had handicap women and she would not open the music room where we requested to be seated on the reservation. Told us we had to wait another hour till 7.00 pm when the music started..Until I ask for the manager she then brought us to the room Terrible I would not recommend this place ever. Horrible place.. We even brought our own birthday cake and when it came back to our table it was crushed ??( the hostess told me I needed to make sure I put in the rec for the cake that it was store bought.?? Then the waiter tried to over charge us by 26.00? This was to be a special evening but I would never go back for sure. Ruined..

    A friend and I made reservations to celebrate a special occassion. We arrived a little early, but were seated immediately. We had paid the cover charge to eat in their Music Room, which I would recommend to anyone that is a lover of jazz and blues music. There isn't a bad seat in the room and the band was fantastic. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. She made sure our drinks stayed filled and did not hurry us through our meal. She was very observant in our pace and put in the orders as we made our way through the appettizer, main course, and dessert. The food was excellent! We will definitely be coming back to sample more of it. :-)

    In West Palm for a concert. Thought we'd try BB Kings. It was Thursday night. Paid the $5 cover to sit in the band hall. We ordered Nachoes. The plate was so full we didn't order an entree. Food was very good. Waitress/Bartender kept drinks full and checked on us several times. The House Band had a great sound. They played two sets while we were there and started a third. We will go again whenever we're in a city with a BB King's

    I took my girl there to have nice dinner with a live band and they did hit a home run. The waitress was more than helpful, the manager assisted even though our waitress had us taken care of very well. The music was great and they left us to our romantic dinner but showed up as soon as we decided we needed something. It wasnt crowded on a Thursday night so I like that even better.

    We made a reservation for a large group but were surprised to still be asked for a $5 cover upon entering! There was no notification of a cover anywhere else, and those people who showed up minutes after 8pm ended up having to pay $10, to add insult to injury.

My food was not good however my husbands southern catfish was good. The waitress did not try to accommodate me. I left hungry and ordering from Cheesecake Factory across the street.

    I was surprised at how touristy this place was. It was as if we were at Disney World. Despite that, the food was decent. The reason we went was for the live music and it was really good. The place had a House of Blues feel to it. The staff was good.

    I have dined at BB King's in several states and have visited this location a couple times. I was extremely displeased with the service provided last Sunday evening. Once my family and I were seated by the hostess, no one acknowledged us or introduced themselves as being our waitress. I had to contact the manager to find out who was assigned to our table. Once I met the waitress, she was not very attentive, not friendly nor was she informative about the menu. I had to get up on several occasions to retrieve condiments and napkins because she did not check on her assigned table. The food, however, was delicious. The food is the reason I will return to BB King's. But I will probably not return to the West Palm beach location.

    We had a very nice evening, food was excellent, my husband is a music connoisseur and loved the house band, And then stopped in to listen to the piano bar for 45 minutes on our way out. I felt the house band was a little loud, but it looked like the people dancing were having a great time. Would definately put this establishment on our "place to return list" next time we go out!

    If you're looking for someplace to have dinner and a show go no further than BB King's. The whole staff were great and attentive, the food was great and the entertainment was outstanding. Professional service and entertainment. We showed up for dinner around 7 and were even impressed with the early band, but BB King's All Star's were outstanding. Can't say it enough. My new favorite place to go.

    We came for dinner and not for the music show. We were seated in the main show area but requested a change to the quieter dinning area. The music volume was so loud we could not talk. The food was great. We both had ribs and the were excellent. The service was very good and we were their early before the late night crowd. I would recommend the food and would come back for the ribs.

    The live bands were terrific! The music was soulful and energetic. But the food, the food was fair to mediocre at best. Such a shame. B.B. has a rockin' club, but I would not recommend eating dinner there. The spinach dip did not have any flavor. The red snapper portion was very small. I didn't particularly mind because it was overcooked and rubber-like. I seriously have my doubts that it was actually red snapper. The brownies that came along with the ice cream sundae tasted like they came from a box. Overall, very disappointing. B.B King must spend good money on the bands, because it is surely not on the food.
