We were here last year about the same time and we had to go back to share our experience with our friends. It didn’t disappoint! Food and service was great and Mike Hayes was phenomenal! To top it off we were there long enough to hear some of the Carl Stewart Band’s first set. We’ll definitely be back there one more time before we leave Nashville!

My husband and I wanted a vacation not to far from home. Nashville was a great spot. We visited the B.B. King establishment. I must say I did not want to leave and the only reason we left was we didn’t want others to miss the experience. Great variety live band music. Nice atmosphere and spacious area. I would go again and again. This is where my family will be taken when they come in town.

Grits,okra, ham and shrimp. Delicious but it may take several hours to digest if you are not used to eat like this!
Good vibes, great music. I bet later at night (3pm dinner!) it is a wild place.
Lots of history! A must in Nashville!

We ate there twice and food was excellent both times. Ended up with the same band playing, wish I remembered the name, but they were great. Played some jazz, motown and even a Prince song.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on October 23, 2017

Decided to come here while visiting Nashville and wanted to see live music that wasn't country. I read that this restaurant plays live jazz and thought it looked fun for my family to go to. The band was amazing and we had so much fun listening to the music while eating. The food was pretty standard but we were all satisfied. Definitely recommended for a fun, vibrant dinner or night out!

After being seated no one approached us for over 20 minutes. We were starving after a 7am flight and it was 4 pm first meal - asked bartender for a beer. Finished first beer still no waitress. - not busy at the time either. Asked bartender if he knew who our server might be and he did not but, but cane right o we and served us the rest of the evening. Good was excellent and sorry the wait ! Bartender Adam, thank you!
