A word from B.B. King's Blues Club - Orlando
BB King's Blues Club is located in beautiful Point Orlando (walking distance from the convention center). EAT Our Menu offers a variety of the South's most delicious comfort food influenced by flavors from New Orleans all the way to the Mississippi Delta, including authentic Memphis-style BBQ. You will find there is something for everyone from our lip-smacking ribs to fresh grilled salmon, fried dill pickles to gumbo from the bayou, and finish it all off with a helping of warm banana bread pudding served with a southern comfort caramel glaze. It's good for the soul.

DRINK Step up to any one of our four full-service bars for an assortment of beer, wine and mixed drinks. Sip any one of our top ten specialty drinks or shooters and take home a BB King's souvenir glass

    The most fun we had in Orlando! The music and atmosphere was fantastic. Food was average and wine list is very limited (compared to what we are used to in CA)but the energy and fun atmosphere makes up for it. Other patrons were fun, friendly and very welcoming to us "out-of towners". We will definitely visit BB King's again the next time we are in Orlando.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/8/2010
    This was my 3rd visit to BB Kings. We had a party of 25 people and end up leaving early because the sound volume of the All star band extremely too loud. We were unable to talk, laugh or enjoy the atmosphere unless we were screaming at the top of our lungs to say 1-2 words. Not to mention, there was only 1 server for our table which made the service very slow. We still had a good time but would have stayed til closing if we could talk, dance and enjoy each others company.

    The entire staff treated our party of 4 like we were lucky to be having a meal there. The waitress was horrible, constantly disappearing and needing to be chased down. She only had 2 tables and was more interested in chatting with the other staff in the gift shop. The Blues Band playing was okay, but the speakers need to be tuned because the high notes practically split your ears. On the good side, the ribs were tasty, and would have been better if she would have brought that 2nd beer I asked for to go with them!

If you wanted to relax and justcheck out the show, ok. if you wanted to dance and shake it up a bit well, ok. If you just wanted to go out on the patio and enjoy some conversation with a little background music, ok And of xourse you could just mix it up through the evening all with good food and beverage at you beck and call.

    Gumbo appetizer and Strawberry Shortcake dessert were excellent. Main entrees left much to be desired. Catfish seemed undercooked (not flaky) and Chicken Fried Chicken was not what I expected. Music was great, although we didn't expect to be charged a separate cover charge to hear a band we never heard of playing INSIDE the restaurant where we were already spending money for dinner. Great service!

    Overall, we enjoyed the music and the scenery, however, the food was extremely overpriced and the waiter was too busy serving the table with a party of ten. The band was awesome and the environment was friendly. It is a nice spot to relax and listen to good music and have a good time. With that being said, I would not recommend the restaurant for dining, but more so for relaxation and fun.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    The big problem I often see at B.B. Kings is that people will stand around on the dance floor or sit on the stage which gets in the way of people who are trying to dance. They also bring drinks on the dance floor and it spills which is an accident waiting or possible lawsuit. The waiters have been told but don't try to do anything to assist.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 3/26/2010
    SERVICE: Horrible. Our server was nice, but overworked. There were only 3 servers working a 100+ person section. One table of 20 kept our server busy just in drinks alone. We sat with bone-dry cups, waiting for refills, for 40 minutes! Every server in that place was unkempt an exhausted! NOISE: THE WORST ANYWHERE EVER! BB Kings has to do something. It's painfully, ridiculously loud. With no noise control, the band HAS to max out the volume to be heard. Then you have to scream and/or lip read to communicate. RESERVATIONS? That's funny. We stood in line for 20 minutes anyway. FOOD: edible AMBIANCE: Other than noise, we liked it. MUSIC: The best! We loved it! PARKING & GETTING IN: Bad! Valet or give yourself an extra 20 minutes.

    Great club! Food was good, if on the unhealthy side. But it was appropriate to the spirit of the place. I had 1/2 a rack of baby back ribs, I'm 58 years old with a pretty good appetite and I thought that it was enough. The deep fried dill pickles, a "specialty" were pretty unremarkable. My wire and son had chicken and ribs and they reported that their food was very good. We had a great waiter. There were a lot of energy in the place. I would recommend it to anyone visiting the Orlando area who likes the blues or blues-based soul music and wants a fun night out that is somewhere between very commercial and very authentic. If you are from out of town and it is is Friday or Saturday night - be warned: the traffic is a bear!

    Dined on 3/12/2010
    I am a resident of DC, and I WISH B.B. Kings would come up here. DC desperately needs a place of such rooted stature. A place where you can enjoy what we call "REAL" music. A vast majority of musicians nowadays are making cookie-cutter music that you hear once and forget, soon thereafter. I'm a mid-20 year old professional woman, and the primary reason why I stopped going out is because the "club scene" quickly gets old, and at a certain point you want to have a relaxed, sophisticated evening with sophisticated adults who want the same...not teeny boppers who are quick to pick a fight and ruin the evening. Did I already say: Please bring to DC!!

    We will be back again. It was my husbands birthday. It was very nice and the service was truly OFF THE CHAIN GOOD. We appreciated it. At first we had to wait at least 10 minutes for a server and I started to get upset and was tempted to leave but when we finally got a server I forgot all about that part of my night. We enjoyed the band, the wings were great, didn't care for the salmon dish but that's only one negative and it is a preference so it's no reflection on the restaurant. You have a great server in the young lady that waited on us. Thank you. We came from 2 hours away and it was worth it. See ya next time. God Bless.
