Wow!...the best barbecue ribs, great flavor and so meaty and tender...and the mac and cheese was really good too. The waiter took such good care of us, even though they were so busy. Great entertainment, Memphis Jones, fun band.

The Gumbo was excellent in taste, quality and quantity! A true and fitting ambiance for riding with the King. The Wednesday evening band was very entertaining and not too loud. A must go, when on Beale Street.

Classic Memphis Live Blues joint on Beale. It's old, crowded, lively, friendly.

Ribs were super super good. They ran out of brisket, had to change us to ribs. Collard greens were excellent. Definitely want reservations.

Food took forever to arrive (an hour for the appetizer, 45 min for the ribs), but we were there for a night out, so didn't care.

I will say, we saw two families with little kids. Please don't bring little kids. This is not the place for them.

Both bands we watched were amazing.

I booked this meal on Open Table but the restaurant greeter said that she didn’t have my reservation on her open book list! I was totally upset because the whole point is to be able to eat in a timely manner! We were in Memphis for my husband’s Fraternity conference! We had never been in Memphis before!

We had a reservation for late afternoon as all other times were booked. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and wonderful taste of the Southern food (yet reasonably priced), the friendly and efficient service and the great seating (view of the stage and live band). It was a special occasion and we certainly had a wonderful time. Live music was great, and the audience was very diverse and full of good spirits.

Probably the best ribs we've ever had. Of course we're from Minneapolis so we've never had Memphis style BBQ. The noise level was high I only because a band was playing and they were awesome so as expected we enjoyed it!

Very disappointed. When ordering drinks, we got an extra one we did not ask for. Thought the waitress said it was their mistake and we would not be charged but we were charged anyway. Also did not get the correct food that we ordered. Asked for pulled pork “dinner” but got pulled pork “sandwich” instead. Told waitress twice it was wrong, ended up giving up instead of arguing with her. Food was just so so.

Special destination blues club. Loved BB King and still love his music & this place was on my bucket list to enjoy at least once. Visited on the way back from Gulf Shores, AL and so happy my husband took me there. It was lively, fun, entertaining and a highlight of our trip.

Everything was great except our reserved table was right in the direct sun. They moved us, but the next table felt like we were in the way. Other than that, the food, music, and service was great.

I don't recommend making a reservation - they simply put you in line for a table regardless. The pros: the food is fantastic, and the music was great. The cons: the restaurant is filthy and the service is pretty awful.

There is an additional cover fee of 5 dollars per person for entry despite booking for dining. This is I assume to cover the ‘entertainment’.
The service was excellent and attentive. Food was good and hot on arrival. Overall costs with drinks was acceptable and the entertainment was very good though not the ‘blues’ we were expecting (a local school of rock plus their staff were playing varied musical genre). It was good to see the venue supporting local talent.
