Best part of this establishment is the musicians and their love for their music. Loved the early evening band! Sat at the bar. The bar staff was friendly. I ordered a local draft beer and ribs. The ribs were better than average, but that is as good as I can put in my review. Came with beans and slaw, both... More

We visited B.B. King's on St. Patrick's Day. We walked in at about 11am when most drinks were 2 for 1......Yes please!! We had a group of 11 people, and the bartenders were quick and friendly. We hung out for about an hour before heading off to another place, but we came back to B.B. King's later that night for... More

As we came in the restaurant, we were told by Sarah, the hostess, that she didn’t have any tables for dinner but that we could pay $5 per person for the entertainment and that she would immediately seat us at a table where we could also order dinner. The whole idea of paying cover if you are ordering dinner didn’t... More

The house band is superb & the others were very good as well! There is some real talent in Nashville! The wait staff were very friendly & helpful with questions. Hubby tried the ribs & thought were excellent. The BBQ chicken, cole slaw, craw fish fritters, everything very, very good.

This is a chain-type place located just a few blocks off the main Honky Tonk stretch in Nashville. It is family friendly and has a large menu. Prices are a bit on the higher side but typical of a place such as this. Overall, the food was very good. Service was very slow. The live music was excellent!

Music was great though we were charged $4 for being 5 minutes late for our reservation. We were late because we had been duped in the parking lot by someone posing as a parking attendant who took off with our $. Same with the person parked next to me. Tip for visitors to 2nd street: parking is by pay station... More

So we were walking thru downtown, and we see the sign - BB King's - we look at each other, smile, and mozy on in for a drink. Live music, bar food and cold beer. It couldn't be better.

We ate here with family. The music and atmosphere was fun. The food was good, although a little pricey for the size of the meal. Service was poor. It took a long time to get seated even though there were not many people there. Our waiter would disappear for long periods of time and did not seem to be aware... More

My girlfriend and I stopped in for a catfish poboy and a couple of beers. Both of which were lovely, but the thing that made the visit stand out so much was our server; AJ (Andrew). He took us under his wing and worked with us to find out the kind of visit we were looking for in Nashville. He... More
