Shrimp and grits are the best.

We drove 150 miles for the dinner and show at biscuits and blues. The tickets were for the second show and we arrived on time. We are very disappointed to find out that they did not have any biscuits and the person that was responsible for seating us refused to give us the best available table. He apparently had friends that he planned to sit at that table. They arrive quite late after the show had started.

Hey There, We are sorry to have run out of Biscuits, as it is in the name we try to prepare, bake, and have as many as possible on hand each & every night. On this night everyone wanted more and more biscuits, and unfortunately we did run out by the second show. As far as the table was concerned the manager had set that table aside to accommodate a Band/House guest, sorry it was not available to be sat at & was reserved: thus the reason it was empty and unavailable to you as a seating choice.

This was an amazing venue and the entertainment was stellar. I smiled and rocked in my chair the whole night. It’s quaint and intimate but definitely worth it!! I’d go over and over again.

I absolutely loved my experience at B and B. It is definitely a 5-star venue. However, my experience was flawed by having to enjoy an adult outing with children in the audience. Allowing children compromised the adult energy from the performers and the all adult audience. We were forced to behave and respect the youth in the room. In my opinion, NO CHILDREN should be allowed. If you don't have a babysitter stay home.

Hey Robin, Sorry to hear that you felt the experience was ruined by the presence of children. We are and always have been an establishment for all ages so everyone can experience the live Blues music. Our musicians are well aware that we are an all ages club and ensures that everyone in the audience including children have the best experience possible. We welcome people of all ages at all times for each and every show and we are proud of that fact!

We had a great experience at Biscuits and Blues. The show, itself, was $24 then you pay for food. Food options are pretty good, although expensive. Most entrees are $25+. That said, we all had fun. Definitely a place to bring out-of-town guests.

This was our second visit to B&B. The food was quite a bit better this time. The servers were attentive without interrupting the show. The music was fantastic, even better than expected. Our group of four had a great time. This is a nice intimate music venue.

We have never had a bad dinner in this place. And the music never disappoints. Harvey Mandel was perfect and his guests astounded us. Wish we could have stayed for the second set. This is a must stop when you go to San Francisco and you want to hear some great Blues and the bonuses you get a great dinner too

I was very disappointed because we are disabled and I found out there's no parking that we could get to for the show. We weren't able to see the show. When I called to cancell I was told I couldn't. So it cost me to never see your show. i'm bummed out...

Duane, Sorry to hear you weren't unable to make it down to the club. Unfortunately parking arrangements/accommodations is not a valid reason to break our policy of tickets being non-cancellable or non-refundable. There are plenty of handicapped parking options in garages withing the immediate area as well as a handicapped space around the corner from us. Please just give us a call in regards to parking & we will be more than happy to direct you to places that could accommodate your needs.

We saw Kevin Burt. He was great.

Here’s an annoyance. It was Thurs nite. We wanted to have dinner before we got there but once we booked our show reservations on Open Table for 7:30 that nite, open table refused to let us book dinner before, so, had to phone the restaurant direct.

But we love this venue and the show was really fun. Hope the performer comes to SF again SOON.

It was a good venue. The food and service were so so but the entertainment was good. Although we expected blues and got swing. I think they played 2 songs that were actually blues.
