Right off of Broadway, B.B. King's Club is great to take a seat and enjoy some day drinking while walking around downtown. Went in around 2:30pm and they were having a drink special, 2 for 1! Bar tender was super nice, and band was great.

Food just ok. Nothing to brag about. The band was phenomenal!! However, the server was the worst ever in life. It took over an to get our food and the bought the wrong food. We were so hungry we ended up eating that. So I say, maybe try going when not so busy.

I had a great time with my colleagues listening to the live music. The food was ok. Not what I expected especially when compared to the original in Memphis. I ordered the catfish and I was very disappointed. It appeared to have the taste and texture of Swai, the Vietnamese catfish. True catfish lovers can tell the difference. Swai has... More

As you might expect, this place has a great ambiance with live music, dance floor, and blues memorabilia. The service was good, but the prices were pretty high, again not that surprising considering it is downtown Nashville, but for the price, the food was really only mediocre. I had a cup of gumbo (a cup NOT a bowl). It was... More

Being a Californian, my sister and I dared to try the fried pickles. They sounded weird but interesting. We were NOT prepared for such deliciousness. OMG! Heaven. Loved the atmosphere. Everything was fantastic. We both had pulled pork sandwiches. Don't miss BB Kings!

Okay, we actually happened upon this place by accident. We wanted to eat at Wild Horse Saloon but some Nebraska fans had bought the place out.... so we walked down a little farther and found this place. The inside is cool. We were told it use to be an old wagon depot. We had to wait a long time for... More

I wasn't impressed with the food - I thought the BBQ could have been much better. The prices are reasonable I just think I could have brought better BBQ at the grocery store. But go ahead and try it - you may love it. Band was great though -not really a cozy welcoming staff. I can check this one off... More
