    ❤️❤️ Ok a guy who loves soul,blues and jazz this is an the best place!! The BB King all star band rocked the house down my wife and I had a blast and we will be back I'm Irish and she is Mexican so we can say its worth it the cover charge was $5 because it was before 10pm I did not mind it all. The band played till about 12 and they kept you going so if you are or not married and need a night away go its worth it!!!

    We needed to make dinner reservations for a group of 7 for a birthday dinner party to take place within 24 hours. We made arrangements long distance (on opentable.com) as we would be traveling that day and wanted dinner the next evening. Making the reservation only took a few minutes and went extremely smooth. I would definitely use this site again for any future reservations.

    This was my parents and sister's first time at BB Kings and once again it didn't disappoint. They got the ribs and chicken dinners and they all took home doggie bags as they portions were very large. The blues band was great and the overall vibe was great as usual. I would recommend BB Kings to anyone looking for good food and live music.

    We've been to Orlando thousands of times but, this is the first time we've ever launched out and tried something new. We're tired of the hype of advertising that always let us down but, this time it was well worth it. Valet parking in such a busy area was only $10 and that was just the beginning of what turned out to be a fabulous evening. The catfish nuggets was delicious; to start, I had shrimp and grits, husband had the catfish platter and son had their famous burger. The band really brought the evening to a blast! The atmosphere was conducive to those looking for a great time with a group of great people. If you have the chance to visit and you love the blues, good food and friendly people; stop on buy and tell them Monica sent you.

    Never in my years of dining out with reservation have I ever had to pay a coverage charge to eat at a restaurant until to my surprise BB Kings. The staff was miserable from the host staff to the food servers. I was very disappointed with my experience. They should let customers know up front that there is a cover charge. Food was OK at best My wife enjoyed her fried chicken and my ribs where to dry. Apps were good Fried pickles and loaded potatoes chip much like nachos. Desert was tasteless. Music great. Will not return

    My boyfriend and I came here for date night. We had never been and were excited. The only complaint I have is at the initial entrance. The guy at the counter was quite demanding. I told him we had reservastions and he snapped at me with "you still have to pay a $5 cover per person" while yelling towards the next guest walking to the hostess ladies instead of stopping by him. I think if you are eating at a reserved table then, the cover should be waived. The food was good and our server was great. The 2 bands were wonderful. Just aggravated with the guy up at the front.

    My parents are visiting from the U.S. Virgin Islands and we took them to B.B. Kings for dinner. It was much better than I expected. My wife heard about B.B. Kings from a friend and suggested that we take my parents there. The food was excellent the mix drink was good and the price is very reasonable. The music was excellent. We really enjoyed the night at B. B. Kings.

    Go for a club experience not for dinner! We had an 8 pm Sunday reservation. There was a $5 cover charge which was a surprise! The lights were down low. My drink was mostly ice. The food was marginal. The brisket was dry and the poppers were tough and tasted like cornmeal-no real flavor. The band was fantastic and the dance floor was busy.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the good times that were had. The blues scene and feel was excellent. Glad we made reservations for an early meal (around 7pm). The place started to boom around 9pm. We were entertained by 2 bands 1 around 7pm and 1 around 9pm. The later band was the best of course. It was a birthday date for my husband and he truly enjoyed it. It was a great evening, in the company of adults who were enjoying themselves but not behaving childish or foolish. Refreshing!

    I enjoyed the experience at BB King's Blues Club. I really wanted to hear the BB King band, but they were not scheduled for the night I attended. The place was not crowded at all, but the host was going to seat us near the rear side stage. We passed several empty tables. Only when we questioned him about his choice did he agree to seat us somewhere else. Overall, I would say the experience was good. It was a relaxing atmosphere. I would probably return on a future visit to the area to hear the BB King band.
