I visited BB Kings in Nashville on Friday, April 14. Originally we tried to get reservations on line but couldn't, so we just went anyway. Got a table! Cover charge was just $5.00. We ordered the pork sliders for appetizer. Delicious barbecue. I ordered Shrimp and Grits, good but probably wouldn't get again. Stick with barbecue! Banana nut bread pudding... More

My 16 year old son loved this club. The food was amazing. The music was excellent. There is a dance floor. We spend 4 hours just eating and listening to the music.

We stopped for a drink and to listen to the music. Jackie Wilson and her band were terrific. The music was great and their performance exceptional. We enjoyed listening. While listening we watched the diners and the meals served looked pretty average. The service was OK and not particularly friendly.

Stopped in on a busy Saturday. Paid a cover charge-though I saw many people-probably locals just walk right in. Sat down, the band finished a song and took a "little" almost 40 min. break, came back and played really nice music for exactly 30 mins. Then took another break. We didn't wait around for the next 'set'. I guess if... More

The service was poor, the food mediocre, the bathrooms dirty, but the music was great. An overall underwhelming experience.

BB Kings is a great place to hear Blues straight from its southern roots. Sadly, I enjoyed the band on this night with about 20 other people. The bar is enormous, but that section of town on this evening was deader than a door nail. If you come, bring your friends. It needs people.
