We made a reservation the day before, but unfortunately when we arrived the computers were down so we could not order food. We ate at a different restaurant but went back afterwards. We were seated right away and had a great seat. We ordered drinks and after I told our server that we were unable to order food earlier that evening he didn’t charge us for our pop. The entertainment was AWESOME!!!! We would of love to eat there but we’re happy we decided to go back!

We had reservations for 5:30. We got to the restaurant a little before 5:30. We had tickets to a show at 7:30 so we figured we had plenty of time. Our table was ready and we were seated right away. But...our server NEVER CAME! We asked about it and still NOTHING! We ended up leaving at 5:50 and had to scramble to find a place we could eat and still make our show. Luckily The Flying Saucer had seating and our waitress was awesome and fast and the food there was wonderful!

The house band was great and the staff was very nice. Now on the food. The main course was good but all the sides were cold and bland. As for the whole experience I really enjoyed it!

We had a great time of enjoying Memphis at its best—good food, great atmosphere, great people-watching! Noisy, but that’s to be expected! When I posted that I was eating there, a friend requested some dry rub to bring home! Fun evening!

Great place to visit. Good food and great blues. Noise level is only rated high because of the live music.

The Texas toast wasn't what was expected. The Mac and cheese could use a new recipe and is not worth $3.00! Other than that I enjoyed myself to the fullest!

I made reservations but didn’t need them as we were early. The staff was very accommodating & friendly. My party & I are from Michigan to experience Memphis music & food! We requested if BB King does anything for my wife’s birthday & the waitress said yes! Next thing we know Memphis Jones, the band leader, gives my wife a birthday shout out & has the whole place singing “happy birthday” to my wife! Then my wife goes down to the lower level to say Thanks to Memphis Jones, who then wants to meet all of us!! Thanks for a wonderful Memphis dining experience!!

Well, we only went because it's "THE blues place" in Memphis. The music and noise levels were hard to take. The place is filthy and needs a good spray down of Clorox. Live music was good. The food was so-so. We wouldn't go back. Tourist trap. We could only get a reservation for 4 pm, but when we got there a street hawker was at the entrance, hustling anyone and everyone to go in. $5 p/p cover charge.

We had a great night at BB King's in Memphis. The music was fantastic and the service was great. Highly recommended for blues & music lovers in general. Even a few local characters thrown in the mix to keep it fun and interesting.

Food and music was good. We were right at the stage so it was a little loud. When making reservations I suggest asking for a table a little back from stage if noise is a problem.
