Fun Blues club. Food was not spiced enough, but you can ask for hot sauce which helped.

We were there to listen to Mr. Sipps. Fantastic! The price of the show was a great value for the Bay Area, but they make up for it in the overpriced meal with booze -- one beer, one house wine, one jambalaya and one chicken ceasar salad totaled $65!

I took a chance and selected this place for date night. Aside from dealing with typical city traffic, I couldn't have been happier.

The venue is pleasant and the food is good.....especially the biscuits. I look forward to returning

 (Vancouver)·Dined on November 3, 2017

I had read about Biscuits and Blues online and as a blues fan, thought I would check it out. The music was excellent and well worth the ticket price. I enjoyed it so much, I wish it had gone on for a bit longer. The food was fine- not gourmet but good food and the service was great. The only negative was the 3 people at the front talking over the music. For people who were loudly cheering the performers and buying them drinks, it seemed disrespectful to everyone in the room. I wish the management had stepped in and asked them to be quiet.
Despite that, I will definitely be back.

She lives in San Diego and I live in Compton. This was our first time at this club. Very nice, enjoyed everything. Would definitely come back when we are in San Francisco.
