    Dined on 8/14/2014
    First of all I had a party of 7. I made reservations so that we didn't have to wait but we still had to wait... In the rain. Then we were shoved into a little table with no room. The waitress was very overwhelmed and it took a long time to get anything that we asked for. The music was way too loud for the gathering that u had which was my birthday. We were all the way in the back and had to scream across the table. Also we were seated right across from the door which was left open and we were all sweating. The food was good and the drinks were also. However it wasn't enough to make me go back.

    So my mother always wanted to go to BB Kings, since it was her 60th birthday we decided to celebrate there. I made reservations online, called to check the evening of. The hostess told me "sorry we don't take reservations on a Saturday. Fine, we will get there early to get tables. My family arrives at 7:45 to get a table. The hostess didn't know where to seat us and then placed us in the back. We found a new table on our own, without anyone complaining about us switching. The food was good, my mom loved the bands. However; the service was slow and our waitress was very scatter brained and it felt as if we had to constantly chase her.

    My girlfriend and I chose this place for our date night last weekend. It was our first time eating there. We had a 7:15 reservation that they honored when we arrived at 7. We got a nice table near the back of the dining room. It was nice because we wouldn't be completely overwhelmed by the noise level. Food was fantastic. We especially loved the Crawfish Poppers. The musical acts were fantastic. My girlfriend recognized one of the acts as previously being on "The Voice". She was happy about that. Overall great time. I would definitely try BB Kings again. Maybe I'll try Orlando's restaurant next.

    Our waiter though helpful with menu items, was very slow in bring our drinks and they were not as ordered. The band was playing in the restaurant and though the music was good, we were there with our daughter and her grandparents for a "goodbye for the summer" dinner. The music therefore made it difficult to hear our conversations. Finally, the restaurant forgot to register our Open table reservation. You have corrected this. Thank you.

    I was really pleased with the All Star Band. They really delivered a great show! I loved the funky music and the arrangements were tight! I loved when the band sang Happy Birthday to my husband. It was really neat! My husband and I really enjoy the vibe of the whole place.

    I booked this reservation nearly a month ago for a party of 10 to celebrate my 40th bday. I had guests fly in from NYC and others drive up from coconut grove. 2 hours before my party was set to begin I received a call from someone claiming to be the general manager informing me that the club had been bought out for a private party and they'd forgotten to turn off reservations. While they offered to book me at another restaurant in the area none offered live blues or the type of food I wanted. With only 2 hours before my start time on a Thursday night, I was forced to cancel my party and leave friends and family disappointed. I cannot believe that they couldn't have at least notified me earlier. Disappointed!

  • Disappointment after Orlando...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 3/21/2014
    I visited the W. Palm Beach location after visiting the Orlando location a few months ago - which was my first visit to B.B. King's. The food in Orlando was excellent! So, naturally, I was excited about going to the W. Palm location. I ordered the Cajun Carbonara. It was spicy, but not flavorful. In Orlando, I had ordered the roasted chicken meal. It was so good then, that my parents ordered it in W. Palm. The chicken was not seasoned at all. They substituted the mashed potatoes for mac & cheese. It had no flavor, and was not very cheesy. The collard greens were good, but the portion was too small. Overall, I was extremely disappointed in the food at the West Palm Beach location. It paled in comparison to the Orlando location's.

    Arrived there at 6:30 with 10 friends to celebrate my birthday and from the very beginning the experience was terrible. It took over an hour for our food to come, the waitress was never around to keep our drinks coming and at the end it took nearly 40 minutes for us to get our bill. We had to ask other waiters to find our waitress and even the manager was no help. What should have been a fun birthday turned out to be a terrible dining experience. When our bill Finally arrived, we all left and went to Mojito's where we salvaged my birthday night. No one us will ever go back.

    Dined on 2/14/2014
    We made reservations for Valentine dinner. We made sure to bring an extra dose of patience because of VDay. We arrived 5 minutes after our reservation time to find that another couple had been seated at the table reserved for us. The hostess left us standing in the middle of the floor while they sorted this out. She returned after we moved out of the way of other patrons and seated us at another table. It took our server 15 minutes to come and introduce herself and take our drink orders. This is pretty much how the whole night went. We always had to track our server and get her attention when we needed something, even though she had been tending to table behind us. The service really needs to improve.

    Went with friends for an evening of good food and music. Staff was extremely courteous and helpful. Everyone was very cheerful and helpful. Our service was excellent. Food is fancy but very good and reasonably priced considering the live entertainment which was excellent. I would recommend this place to anyone. Family friendly for older children who like music, especially music. Especially the Blues genre. Go for dinner, go for a drink, go with friends and enjoy the entertainment!

Our server was horrible which negated the festive occasion. We were neglected for most of our dining experience and the entertainment was non existent. The evening that I planned turned sour.

    We waited 10 minutes before someone came to our table. Sat inside...very poor lighting with the speakers blasting songs from a singer in another room. The fried green tomato appetizer was good but a small portion for two people to share. The BB King Pork dinner was excellent except for the cold mashed potatoes. The shrimp and grits were tasty, but not enough shrimp. The "frozen" drink that was ordered was barely "frozen". Waited 15 minutes for the peach cobbler dessert which consisted of a hot peach mixture with crumbs sprinkled on top with the smallest scoop of vanilla ice cream. Place not worth the money!

    B.B. King's Blues Club was ... fine. That's not bad, but it's not great, either. The briscuit was pretty good, the macaroni and cheese was very good, the cornbread was disappointing. My wife liked her salmon, but didn't love it. The spinach dip appetizer was just OK. The fact that I was charged for an extra side of BBQ sauce was annoying, but the service (Kelly was our waitress) was very good. Of course, one of the big draws of the restaurant is the live music, and there was little to complain about there. The band we saw had a great sound, with an exceptional cover of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together." I would have liked to have heard more from them, but we had to leave early. Would we go back? Yes, but more for the music than the food.
