It was a little too warm in the place. We asked about cutting up the air and the waitress just said I wish they could.

We love BB Kings in Memphis. We decided to try out Nashville. Food was good. However we came for the music. We changed our reservation so we could see Mike Hayes. After finishing our meal, he finally went on for 15 min then took a break. We waited another 30 min and left. It was disappointing that he barely played bc he seemed very talented.

It seemed to not have people spread out as some other places that we had gone on vacation. Sanitizing tables consisted of wiping down with a rag that was used over and over. We loved the food but it did not seem as safe as others.

We couldn’t speak to one another because the music was so loud. The waitress couldn’t even hear us order. Service was so slow and multiple drinks we ordered were forgotten about and took 30+ minutes to come out. Water was never refilled. The waitress was speedy about taking away our food from the table and took a plate from a friend who had to step away having only taken 2 bites (no exaggeration). It should be courtesy to ask the rest of the table if that person would like a box or to wait before taking food away. It was hard having them pay for food the didn’t even get to eat. It was also incredibly dark. All aspects were disappointing.

I am giving them 3 instead of 5 because we were so disappointed about the music. This was a special celebration for my husbands 70th birthday, I booked lodging months in advance, brought friends etc. He loves the place we spend a few days in Nashville a few years ago, we discovered BB Kings the first night and went there every night we were there. The music was great, we love blues and love to dance. This time though the blues were only played for a couple of songs and then they completely changed the music, it was not blues, became rowdy, was disappointing. The food was great, the service was great, we love the atmosphere, it was just sad to look forward to something for so long and to leave so disappointed. It is called the BB King BLUES club.

We went to this club because last month we visited the one in Memphis and had a wonderful time. We were also scouting it out as possible venue for a night out with my dad who will be visiting later this month. He will be 93 this year and loves B.B. King's music.

With the exception of the charming young man who greeted us, the evening was a bust. Terrible service even though they were not very busy. The woman who took us to our table didn't say one work to us as she walked us to it and put the menus on the table. A rude bartender who challenged me ordering a drink since I was sitting at a table. I told her I'd waited 10 minutes to get it from our server. She reluctantly relented. Also of note that she walked by me three times, once to chat at the end of the bar with some other waitresses. I had the ribs. They were just ok. Not as good as the ribs we had in Memphis. Hubby has something he said was good. I don't remember what it was.

Once we received our food, the waiter never came to check on us or offer to refill our drinks. Again, it was not busy in the club. The band performing was very good in particular the female lead singer. We were prepared to stay and have more drinks and enjoy the music, but it was so horrible, we just left.

On the way out, I told the young man who greeted us that he was the best part of our visit. There was someone who appeared to be a manager who was listening to me rant. He never said a word.

There are so many choices on Broadway. Don't make this one of yours.

Food was great. Music was great, not too loud so that you could have a conversation without having to shout.

Asking for your I.D. of a clearly senior person is flattering but stupid when you are denied service as a result of leaving you I.D. at your hotel.

Don’t be in a hurry when you go. Took some time to get waited on after we where seated. The band was great.

Enjoyed the variety of music and great atmosphere, our server was just a bit slow. However we plan to go back in the near future.
I do recommend making a reservation prior to going! Waited only 5 minutes in line. Compared to 2.5 hour wait. 👊

Our server tried very hard, but the bartender wasn’t/couldn’t do her job. Took 45 min to get first drinks and they were wrong. Ended up only ever getting one drink. Food was very good and band was great. Felt very bad for our server as he tried very hard.

The band was excellent, large stage. Don't go for the food, go for drinks and the band. Host people at front not very helpful and dismissive when we were there to ask about a table during busy times. Food was terrible. My husband had the ribs and they were cold, not they waited to long to bring the food out and it got cold, cold it was refrigerated and not reheated enough cold in the center ribs. Husband ate in anyway and was sick to his stomache that night. Very dissappointed.
