They were closed due to the bombing on the street several months ago. Why didn’t OpenTable know this? Why does OpenTable continue to accept reservations for the Nashville BB King’s??

The restaurant was closed! Open Table really messed up by telling us we had a reservation at a closed restaurant. We couldn’t even get close to it because of construction so it’s probably closed for a while.

Is it turned out the restaurant was destroyed in the Nashville bombing. It was quite awkward when e we showed up and the building was destroyed. You should remove the listing from open table a this restaurant in Nashville longer exists 🥲

The restaurant is temporarily closed. But I had no idea of knowing that until I arrived in Tennessee.. Don't understand why I was able to reserve a table through open table when the restaurant is closed

Was celebrating my wife’s Birthday weekend and drove in from Louisville, KY only to find out that club was closed. I had to scramble for last minute reservations elsewhere to accommodate not only us but our friends that had drove in from Memphis to celebrate with us.

I understand COVID-19 but open table should not accept reservations ( even had me verify) if the establishment is not open.

I honestly don’t know if this is restaurant issue or open table but either way it was very disappointing.

My group all absolutely loved the music and interaction that they had with their audience!! The food was good with more variety for “bar food”. The drinks were a little watered down but our server was outstanding. The mood and setting of entertainment space worked well. Overall, it was our best night in Nashville!

I know when you come to Nashville, you think Broadway and Country music but you need to give Blues and B.B. Kings a try. This is truly a hidden gem.

We showed up way earlier than our reservation but the front accommodated us, just giving us a heads up it may be a few as they were wrapping up preshift. Mike Hayes Band were rocking away and another waitress checked in on us while we waited for our main one.

Joanna P took the best care of us accommodating an extremely picky 7 year old, a dad with FOMO (fear of missing out) and a mom who was undecisive.

Food was absolutely delicious, seasoned just right and mouth watering. Drinks quite tasty and music was moving while feeling the soul as Mike Hayes Band sang away.

As we left Dorothea and Goodwill gave us the friendliest send off and made our trip truly unforgettable. Thank you to the B.B. Kings crew, We will be back and hope others see what you offer as it is truly one of a kind!

It’s bar food and some...BBQ Nachos reminiscent of Memphis. Very good. Ribs disappointing and definitely NOT Memphis. Good bar and drink selection. Noise level high from the live music. But, hey, this is Nashville. Great talent that night. Had a great time.

DONE WITH COVID.

Had the best time, in a world where folks are saying the thrill is gone, we were thrilled beyond words, thanks for a great night, and let it be said, the BB All Stars are phenomenal, they could perform anywhere, but the blues was on our side last Friday night🎶

Come together, right now....

My Wife and I had a late lunch at BB Kings Blues Club in Downtown Nashville on Sunday 11/15. We arrived a bit before our reservation but were seated immediately. Our attentive Server was with us quickly and our drinks arrived quickly as well. While we ordered our food a band was setting up and by the time our food arrived the and started playing. The band was a excellent blues band.
The food was excellent my Wife had a pulled pork platter with Cole slaw and baked beans and a slab of corn bread. She enjoyed her meal very much. I had a 8 bone slab of ribs with the same sides as my Wife. The ribs were tender and very tasty with just enough tug rather than falling apart, that showed me their postmaster knew what he was doing. The beans & slaw were both very tasty. The corn bread was delicious and I only wish I could have it daily.
I highly recommend you give try this place out when you’re in Nashville

We were there to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. The service was great from the moment we arrived! Mike Hayes was absolutely amazing!!! We loved his performance. I think he made BB King proud! The All Star band was lacking except for the band. The female singer also was dry. She had very little feeling in her performance. This was BB King for goodness sake. The food was a Big OMG! It was delicious and the drinks super fabulous. The female singer lacked the enthusiasm when she announced the birthday too! Jazz it up!!!

I had to admit that this is a beautiful location. Unfortunately, we waited for our waitress/waiter for 20 minutes. The place was empty, it was before noon.
A lot of room for improvement.

No COVID regulations were followed. Our waitress either didn’t wear a mask or had it pulled down. I saw maybe one waitress wearing a mask properly. The place was packed! No tables spaced out and the bar was packed.
Food was ok. Drinks tasted watered down. Because It took an hour to get our food, the waitress said the manager would give us a military discount. WE ARE ALREADY MILITARY, so basically we didn’t get a discount.
The best part of the night was the entertainment. Al the entertainers were awesome!
