We arrived and were seated right away at a table to the side of the bandstand and a view of Beale Street. Our waitress took our drink orders and told her to bring us the catfish bets with comeback sauce right away. If you haven't had these I highly recommend!!! Our waitress was extremely helpful and gave us all the info we needed to make our orders. My wife had the shrimp and cheesy grits which she just loved and I had a rack of ribs and Oh My, the sauce was out of this world. The sides were also wonderful and didn't leave much. Our waitress kept our drinks filled and was there for anything we needed. We got to the restaurant about 45 minutes before the band (King Beez) started playing and we were not rushed out the door after we finished eating but instead, welcomed to stay as long as we wanted to enjoy this great music and perfect atmosphere. This place is a must when staying in Memphis and will want to come back during your next stay.

We specifically drove to Memphis from Chicago to have ribs at BBKings Blues Club and hear great music performed by the All Star Band. The ambience was energetic and fun. I didn't expect too many people there since it's February (the streets were empty during the day) but BBKings was packed, most likely because of the entertainment! The food was good, and the blues music was excellent.....All in all, an enjoyable evening.

I have used OpenTable numerous times to make a reservation and loved it. This time was different. When getting in line I told the bouncer that we had a reservation, and he looked at me like I was crazy. He said that they don't do reservations there but we could go inside. Once inside I told the front desk staff that we had a reservation for 4:45 pm. He said that we should just wait over there and they would seat us. We waited, and waited, and waited. I eventually asked the host if we should have received a paging device so that we could be seated. Had the nerve to roll her eyes and tell me that she gave it to my husband. She didn't give anything to my husband. So I requested one, and again told her that I had made a reservation through OpenTable for 4:45 pm. I eventually got a paging device and stood there for 45 minutes waiting to get seated. About every 15 minutes I would ask the host where we were at on the list because I HAD MADE a reservation at OpenTable. Each time an eye roll and was told I was next. The server then went over to the bar where my husband was standing and chose to rub her backside on his hand that was resting on the top of one of the bar stools. OKAY. Husband thought that was stupid, so did I. Eventually we got seated almost an hour after the scheduled time. Other than the front staff, the vibe was great, food was awesome and service from the waitress were on point. Front door staff could use a little more training on customer service.

Ribs were sticky and delicious as expected. The chicken strips and mac and cheese were crazy good. My kids are already asking when we can go again.
