Music worth the bleh food. Go, just don't go with high expectations. Fried chicken, brisket, shrimp and corn fritters okay. Worst catfish I've ever eaten. Good mixologist behind the bar and service was great.

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.

Entertainment brought the house down. Food was absolutely delicious. The only down fall we had was our waitress. We still tipped her very well, but she was not friendly. You could tell she was not having a good day.

My sister and I went for the Rick Estrin and the nightcats show , loved it. We had the gumbo, shrimp and corn fritters delicious. Bourbon, ginger beer, and ginger ale drink was great. 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.

Since I live in Capitola, I only come here to see specific bands. I saw Tony MacAlpine, and most recently Travis Larson Band with Beer for Dolphins. If I lived in San Francisco, I would come here more often. The brisket was great. The ginger beer was phenomenal. It was a little pricey, (I think it was 6 or 7 dollars), but the price of the show was inexpensive ($25). So I didn't mind. It's nice to have non-alcoholic options other than soft drinks.
It is a bit strange to have two short shows instead of one long one, but I was able to purchase tickets for the second show without any issues and still keep my seat. Parking was very convenient.
