Thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and the music. Can hardly wait to go back. I loved the vibe more than New Orleans.

We were there on a packed Saturday night but managed to score a table near the stage. Food was good, music was awesome! Fun to watch folks get up and dance. Loved it!

I am in Memphis on business, and I ate at B.B. King's Blues Club last night. The food and music were both great, and the prices were very reasonable. I ordered fried pickles as an appetizer. They brought me a tray full of fried pickles, and they were delicious. For dinner, I had the barbecued brisket with garlic mashed potatoes... More

This place is lots of fun if your into live music and great atmosphere. The sound in this place is amazing. Bb king took no short cuts in his design. They even have a Leslie behind the band. I didn't try the food. Just drinks and dancing.

We jumped in here to get out of the rain and spent about 3 hours listening to the live jazz/blues band play their hearts out on a Saturday afternoon. Great view of the stage from up stairs.

We stopped by here for a quick drink one snowy afternoon in January. Exceptional reception from woman at gift shop, so we stopped for a snack and a cocktail. Both were excellent. Watched the BB King video in the background, on the stage where BB King and so many others played. Fantastic energy in this place.

I love this place - if you love the blues along with good food you got to visit. There was a young boy dancing off of every song that the live band was playing and singing - just wonderful - we had the ribs - they were awesome falling off the bone - and if you get the strong ice... More
