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

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 3/21/2009
    BB Kings was good, alive with lots of people, and the band was great. The food was good but the odd fried pickles were odd at best. Not a good variety for a sampler platter, that is one item that should be substituted if requested. The ribs were off the chain tender, and the gumbo was flavorful and good. All in all minus the overcrowded area we ended up in was good. The people next to us apparently didn't have a reservation and they accommodated them by squeezing in another table which was very uncomfortable to us to the point we left early because of it.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 3/12/2009
    The food was plenty and fair in comparison to other establishment in the area. I have to say that the price range was not fit for the overall quality. Our waitress took more than 20 minutes after we were seated to take our drink order. Once we ordered our food it all came out at once(appetizers, salad and entree). At the end of our meal we waited for the check and were pretty much ready to leave but our waitress never returned. Finally after 20 minutes I went to the front cashier/hostesses stand to pay my check. Would not return or recommend.

The fried dill pickles are especially unique and the specialty drinks are as diverse and colorful as the blues and RnB music the BB King Band plays. Overall a great ni

    The food here is good comfort food and the entertainment fun. The service is terrible, they don't actually reserve a table for you when you make a reservation. You can eat for about 10-20, but they have a $5 cover regardless. We got there and they actuallly moved us after we were seated. The team of 6 hostesses were unwelcoming, cold and rude. Too bad, great concept fot the Orlando area, just not quite there.

    Live Blues with dinner was great fun. Music wasn't too loud so dinner, music and conversation were enjoyable. Food was good and portions sizeable. I don't know how late the menu is served but this would be a great place to hang and take in the Blues sounds for an evening.

    Unfortunatley VERY Poor. The server kept explaining that this was the first time they had done a Brunch to offer as an excuse to why everything was so slow. I have been in the F&B business for over 25 years and this was a terrible experience.Not the typical Brunch menu as I had expected, not a buffet but the choice of two courses. . You either had to choose a couple of different breakfast items or luncheon item. I chose the Waffle and Chicken and was disappointed, a waffle and Fried Chicken, no sides or even gravy. Very Weak at $40.00, I understand the menu and includes the Entertainment...but charge more and offer a Buffet. 2 kids and my wife took over 1 hour to get food, had to leave before we ate because kids got cranky

Since it was a birthday dinner,I pd. As we entered a very empty restaurant, the Host sat us at a very tiny table more so for having drinks &not for dinner,we asked to be moved to a slightly bigger table,there were plenty of tables available.The host made it seem we were being unreasonable & told us that itwas impossible to move us b/c the restaurant would need to accomodate larger parties,which made us feel as if our money did not count. The food was mediocre and their signature Gumbo dish was undercooked which we sent back
