I visited the renowned BB King Blues Club on December 26th. I visited the popular location to celebrate me getting married earlier that morning. The club had only been opened for a couple of hours. After placing our order, the waiter returned to inform us that nearly everything on the menu was not available to order. Everyone at my table had to settle for fried fish. We were visiting the city traveling nearly three hours away. I made the reservations days in advance. If I had of known that the items on the menu were not available, I would have chosen another location.
great food. they do bbq best.
loved the visit. though it was Covid time , there vibe was great and they were getting ready for live music at 1:30 pm on saturday 25th dec.
eill love to return post the pandemic to enjoy the whole experience.
They seat us in the worst spot of the place, The waitress didn't understand that when you go to a place like that is not for the food, the food is not the main event, you go for the music, the environment, that's why you pay at the entrance. I know we are in covid times and the tables can not be near of each other but she literally seat us in the worst spot when were others tables available.
After I told the waitress to move us from that horrible spot to another with better view of the band, she did nothing instead she sat another couple in a better place with a reservation half and hour later than mine.
The most funny is that after the band finished the waitress tell me to move to another spot.
My recommendation to other tourists is to avoid this place and walk down one block and you will see another local with live music were the service is incredible, it name is Rum Boogie Cafe
PS: thanks for the worst service.
After we got through the rude girl at the front everything else was great! Food, Atmosphere, MUSIC WAS AMAZING!!!!
I will be back! This was an amazing experience. The food, atmosphere and energy was AMAZING!!!! Glad to have been able to experience this.
I had an amazing experience at BB Kings! We enjoyed the seating, the music was amazing and the food was the best! Thank you for making our birthday trip experience perfect. We look forward to coming back for great music and the ribs, shrimp and Mac n Cheese!
The place was nice. There is a service charge for the live music but it was a decent price and the music was good. My God was good, only thing was my ribs didn't come out to hot they were a lukewarm temperature but still good.
It was my mother Birthday...so we drove all the way from Atlanta to hear so live music and which we enjoyed.we can’t wait to go back.
I love this place. I have been twice, I am from New Orleans.
Best ambience and music in town! Love this place!
We had a great time here! Food was good, music was great and we had great service
Great food and amazing band last night!
It was my first time to Memphis and this place came highly recommended. The bartender was amazing and recommended everything we ate from the beer, to our appetizer, and entrees! It was a great experience! 10/10!!!
Had a blast! Music was off the chain. Can't wait til next time.
Loved our dinner and the several times we came to BB Kings. Every one was very welcoming!!
The food and service were great! I think their barbecue ribs are the best in Memphis.
Everyone in our party were impressed with the food.
We ate at BB’s twice on our stay ... had ribs the first visit and shrimp and grits the second visit. Loved both dishes.
Absolutely one of the best environments I have been around.
It was very good and our server was amazing
Was hesitant to enter this place for lunch knowing that it’s primarily a blues-live-band place at night. Usually bar food/live band place menu consist of the usual bar menu of chicken wings, nacho, tacos etc. Well I was pleasantly surprised to see a wide variety of southern food selection here. Tables are spaced out and there are hand sanitizers all over the place.
I made the best decision to order Chicken Fried Chicken ($17.99): buttermilk chicken fingers on a bed of really creamy, cheesy, gooey yummy Mac and cheese with a side of sautéed veggies. Omg my 2 favorite things in one dish: chicken and Mac and cheese!!!
My husband also enjoyed his baby back ribs ($19.99). He raved so much about the fall-off-the-bone, tender, moist, flavorful meat. The sides beans and slaw complemented the BBQ and satisfied his craving!
Nikki was our very friendly and efficient server on a rainy day in Memphis. The music and vibe even at lunch was really fun. We enjoyed our lunch very much!
Always love BB King’s. Music is always excellent.
Lacey was Amazing!!!
We went on a weekday at lunchtime with our 1.5 year old. We were the only ones in the restaurant at them time so I can’t speak to when they are busy, however our waiter took care of us and made sure Kerrigan (our kiddo) has everything she needed for lunch. Drinks were great, and the grande nachos the wife and I share were gigantic and filled us up. We approve and recommend. One day we will visit when we have a babysitter and a live concert is going on!
Everything was great. The food was great,fun was had by all. The house band was very talented.the staff from the door man to the bathroom attendant were all really nice
What is the use of OpenTable? I'm asking because once my party arrived at BB KIngs they claimed they did not havve a reservation for us and in order to be seated we had to pay $7pp That was unforeseen added expense Next we were placed in a secluded area upstairs that was not well lit at all If I'm not mistaken there were only 2-3 tiny lights which caused us to use the flashlight on our phone in order to see the menu. The server was nice. Everyone ordered their food at the same time however mine never came out. I told the server to just cancel my order but she claimed it was prepared and failed to be brought out The wait time on my order (only wings) was long again so I assume they either cooked some more because the first ones were cold or they had never prepared them By the time my order was brought out we were ready to go so I just threw my wings in a to-go box The house band and Jerome Chism was very entertaining I hope this occurrence isn't often as I work in downtown hospitality and refer a lot of my guests to check out BB Kings but due to this experience I am a little hesitant For this to be the only place my daughter wanted to spend her 21st birthday we were very disappointed
First time visiting..was great. Food was delicious..customer service excellent..band sounded great..love they stamp your hand to walk Beale street and come back after cover charge.. must visit when going to Memphis
There is not a word I can use to describe the food there. I’ll definitely be going back!! The manager West has the best customer service
It was my husbands 40th birthday and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The band and singer was amazing and the food was good. We returned the next night to hear the band and it was just as good. We will be returning!!
This was my first time in Memphis and was just walking around asking where to go. This place was highly recommended! I would come here every evening if I could! I absolutely loved it and the band was OUTSTANDING!
Great drinks, food and entertainment!! We truly enjoyed it!
The musicsl sets are short. The bands plsy the blues 10% of the time!
We was in Memphis just visiting and BB Kings place was a must go to And it was amazing the stuff the food and the music ALL was GREAT!!!
B. B King is a MUST on Beale Street! We had the ribs with Mac n cheese. The catfish bites were delicious as well! We arrived just in time for the live music!
We had great food and great blues! A wonderful evening. We hope to be back to Memphis
The band was great! Very talented. Ribs were good but sides where nothing special.
Great food. Entertainment was outstanding and the service was better.
We made reservations ahead of time, expected a good table..... first offered seat by door, then on side of band, and then offered a table with view of band. I do feel if you are eating there the entertainment should have been included but paid $14 extra...I also know that with covid times are different. Food was great! Our waiter who was also tending bar was very good.
First time in Memphis loved the food atmosphere everything was great
