Biscuits and Blues Ratings and Reviews
So we were interested in having a nice comfort food dinner. Well here you also have to purchase concert tickets so that added $60 onto our bill even though we had no interest in the show. Fine. Then we had to wait outside in a line to get into the restaurant. Seating was awkward. Service was good. We both ordered the fried chicken. The outside was delicious and crispy. The inside of the chicken was bland but juicy. The rest of the meal as average at best. Drinks were okay. The show was okay but not great. In the end, counting the cost of the tickets, it was about $200 for the two of us. It wasn’t worth what we paid. I won’t be going back.
It was my birthday and myself loving Blues I booked for Sundays show and built my hope up for a great time. Show started at 9pm and the band was the show, they started pulling people from the audience to take the stage because Featured Artist was not there (terrible). The Feature artist got there at 10:05pm took the stage and sang 3 songs and said good night. I paid my money to be entertained by the audience. I was so disappointed coming all the way from LA for this let down. Birthday ruined, 2/11 was my birthday
It’s nice being in an establishment when everyone is there for the good food and music. There is not much diversity, but that’s ok because the kindness and decency of the crowd far surpasses which races are represented. Biscuits & Blues is a great hang out place & ticket prices are so reasonable.
Friday night blues! My niece from philly was in town and I wanted to show her the Bay Area music scene. It was one of the best shows - great food and the staff at biscuit and blues are prompt and professional. I always order the catfish small bites, shrimp balls, étouffée and of course the biscuit.
You have tor try the “blues ice tea”- it’s potent!
It’s a must for blues & jazz lovers in the Bay Area
Five of us were in San Francisco for the weekend, we all like the Blues and Cajun food. We had been here last year, as well, and couldn’t wait to go back. Very quaint and intimate venue. Outstanding Cajun food, and wide variety of drinks. Will definitely be back!
This longstanding blues club is still as wonderful as always. We went for the show (Coco Montoya is superb!) but also enjoyed the food. Southern Fried Chicken was good- moist, crispy skin, nicely seasoned (and well-priced). The mashed potatoes and the slaw were also good; the gravy was so-so. I didn't think much of the biscuits (4 and some good honey butter), even though they are a customer favorite. The service was really good considering they were taking orders, serving, tending and clearing all during the show. The servers were not too obtrusive during the performance. The wine-by-the-glass list wasn't that interesting, but they had some traditional cocktails, and wines by the bottle were reasonably priced. The place is old, loud and funky and perfect for blues! (BTW, if the second show isn't sold out, you can stick around outside and try to get seats for the second performance at no extra cost.)
The food used to be great there, but it's gone to mediocre. Unfortunately, at the same time, the prices have gone through the roof. You used to be able to go there and have dinner, and watch a good show. But now I recommend eating somewhere else, and then going to the show. It's just too damn expensive for food that just isn't that great. The ceviche is good. But everything else was really bland. And no salt & pepper to be found!
We snuck up to see Christone Kingfish Ingram and had a 6pm reservation. We got there at 520 because traffic from the South Bay was light. We were grateful they sat us right away, and we were able to get our meal started before the crowds arrived around 645. The show started at 7.
I wish I could give Ambiance more than 5 stars. It's the coolest place from the lighting to the seating. We were in the second row and it felt like Christone was playing just to us.
The food was very very good and we enjoyed our apps, drinks, and entrees very much. Our server (Jenna!) took very good care of us. She didn't stop by to check on us after the music started, but she'd look at us occasionally as she helped others. We could have waived her over had we wanted something. And the guy who refilled water glasses was right there to keep the glasses full. It was a more expensive evening than we usually have so it will be a special treat the next time we come up. And we definitely want to come back.
Terrible service from one staff member. I came all the way from Canada just to be ignored. Music is way too loud which distorts it. Food is priced way too high for the tiny portions. Alcohol is over priced as well. It has potential if management made some adjustments. I read many negative reviews online around service, prices, etc....
I went to see Christone 'Kingfish' Ingram. The young man was a phenomenal talent. I don't think I've ever heard such guitar virtuosity live, and never from someone so young. I'm very happy I got a chance to experience his talent. That said, it is unfortunate that the dining experience didn't match the musical experience. The fried green tomatoes were okay. The
macaroni & cheese croquettes were tasteless, and the shrimp & grits had lumps. To finish, the bread pudding was lackluster & had been microwaved. The venue required us to order dinner, which is an unfortunate policy. If possible I would recommend that future patrons fulfill their food requirement with drinks only, although that also looked like it might disappoint. Thirteen dollars for a glass of Korbel? I realize B&B is located in an area frequented by tourists, & therefore expected a bit of 'tourist-quality'. The food isn't better because it doesn't have to be. The place is in a great location, full of foot traffic, and features great music. But as a local it is hard to accept this without surprise & disappointment, especially in a city so full of great good & drink. I frequently & gladly pay good money for SF dining. The table service at B&B was very good; our server was attentive & answered all our questions.
It’s always a treat to see the live acts at Biscuits and Blues and seeing Kingfish play was no exception. As an avid blues fan and a lover of live music, the venue is a great way to enjoy a lively evening in San Francisco. Our food was fine and our server was attentive. I try to book a ticket every time I’m in SF, even if I’m travelling alone. If you love music, and enjoy watching new talent, I highly recommend this place!
