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

    great band,below average food,the potential to be something special,but they appear to have settled for the bottom end of the market.we were a little annoyed when our entrees arrived midway through our appetisers,and instead of apologising the waitresses simply put them on the table next to us to become cold,until we were ready for them.i can't believe this is company policy,but it really should not happen,it wasn't as if it was particularly busy,just bad timing in the kitchen and bad attitude front of house!!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 7/2/2009
    I was disappointed to find out there wasa $5 a head cover charge to get in the door, even if you were purchasing dinner at 10-$25 an entree. A charge which is not mentioned anywhere on the website NOR when I called to find out about kids meals, etc. I found the fee a bit audacious. Also, the hostess was extremely rude. On the bright side, we were finally offered outside seating free of a cover charge since we couldnt hear the band. We accepted as the noise level was more of an after hours club then that of a restaurant with live music. The service was great. The food was good. On par for the price. All in all, I'm just glad I had the $25 gc or it would NOT have been worth it.

    My dining partner had to return her food twice and ultimately did not eat anything. However, the manager was accomodable to her and tried to please. Did not like the fact that we had to pay an extra $5 cover charge to hear the band. The parking was validated so that was a plus. I had heard great things, but I was somewhat disappointed.

The food was very good, and was served in a timely fashion. Music was loud, but that is the way it supposed to be. We will definitely dine here again :)

I had my first dance since I was diagnosed with cancer and most likely my last. Thank you so much for giving us such a wonderful evening.

    My husband and I really enjoyed visiting BB King Orlando during our recent visit from Memphis, TN. My husband had the full slab of ribs and I the ribs and chicken plate and they both were delicious and the service was great. The band was just as entertaining which helped to provide a tranquil atmosphere. We will gladly visit this establishment the next time we are in Orlando. We also frequent the BB King in Memphis and they, too, have great service and food. Visit the Memphis BB King restaurant on Beale Street for a pleasant experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 6/4/2009
    Unfortunatley, the economy has hit Pointe Orlando really hard. I used to live in Orlando and was shocked to see that about half of the stores were empty. It used to be a very vibrant scene which is now like a ghost town. Our experiecne at the restaurant was good, but the lack of people there was kind of uncomfortable. The hostess' were very dry and rather unfriendly, and we stood at the hostess stand for a couple minutes before someone approached us, and there were 3 girls there the whole time! Our server was very good and very friendly. The food reminded me of classic soul food, which was pretty good, I was just expecting more gourmet style. The fried snickers pie for desert was awesome!

I was a little afraid that the band and setting would be too touristy, but was mistaken. The restaurant was amazing, food was perfect, Band was Great, and we are planning our next trip over to hear one of your regular blues musicians!

    This was my Wife and my first time dining at BB King's. The music was great, the food (bbq ribs and chicken fried chicken) was actually really good. The service was slow, we had approximately 2 servers and didn't see anyone for 30 or 40 minutes once our food was brought to our table. We weren't in a rush so we drank water once we ran out of beer and were content on water for the rest of our evening. Enjoyed the BB King store, though it would be nice if they would get the guitar picks back in stock. My Wife and I will definitely go back for the food and live music.

    We originally received a very friendly server then were "passed on" to another and told that she was closing and hadn't had enough tables. She was very unenthusiatic and when we told her I had been given a Gift Certificate for my birthday she was very uninterested. Our original continued to wait on others, including the table right in front of us and we called her over three times because the new one was no where to be found. We were told that the wings were either BBQ or Medium and that they would not be "too spicy". When they came we each only ate one and it was too spicy. This was one of the times we called over the original server and she explained that she always told people that they were very spicy.

    The food was terrible. The salmon I ordered was overcooked and dry. The music for the 1st set was great blues. When the 2nd group, The BB King Blues band came on for the 2nd entertainment, they played 70's disco. I did not go there to hear disco. I went for Blues music. I will return on Sunday afternoons for the blues jam sessions only or to see headliners that I know are going to play Blues. I will not eat there again.

    Having had a terrific food, ambiance and blues music experience at BB's in Memphis, we went to the Orlando location with similar expectations. Surely the All-Star band and music selection would be similar - no - it wasn't. The famous ribs and pulled pork - not as good. Unfortunately, instead of blues, the band played Motown and disco covers (not Stax or Chess titles), the only blues we remember was "Tie me to the whipping post" sung so loud we really felt we were - so we headed for the exit (as many did). The band is capable enough, the song selection was inappropriate for a "blues" bar. The dance floor was packed for between sets recorded music - not so much during live performance. So not going back 'til we hear food and music fixed.
