We enjoyed our visit and really enjoyed the King Beez. The singing was phenomenal as was the guitar playing and all. The menu was reduced due to Covid, but everything was tasty.

BB Kings has been my favorite place for several years. Good food, good location and that kinda live music that makes you move in your seat. If you’re on the fence trying to decide, chose BB Kings.

Steel Fist Riderz MC of Baton Rouge, Louisiana enjoyed every essence of Memphis & Beale St. with dinner at B.B. King’s. There was no wait. We entered & sat in reserved seating. The legendary band played to our enjoyment. The food was excellent. Price wasn’t of concern, if anything, that atmosphere was worth it. We definitely will revisit there when we return.

Lively atmosphere the band will encourage you to participate. So if you don't want to be singled out sit away from the stage, LOL. The food was tasty and satisfying. The cocktails were strong. People wore fancy outfits and jeans and anything in between and everyone was happy. Beale street is like a miniature Bourbon street and is not for the faint at heart. Enjoy!!!!!

Great lunch time service. The food was delicious and the server, Brandon, was very helpful and attentive. The band was just setting up so there was no live music at the time but still a great time.

Great experience. Only problem was sitting at a table that had a lot of air contact from the ac and ceiling fans but they moved us with no problem.
