We listened to Dave Spectre and had a very good time. Nice selection of beers. The food is not that good, but you are here for the music.

Buddy was present along with Ronnie Baker Brooks it is a fun venue and they have it carefully roped off so you can easily move around even if standing room only. The food was good, the staff was wonderful and it was a great experience

Went to Buddy Guys as part of a long weekend. The band Rusty Wright was pretty good. Buddy showed up and did a few songs. Food was pretty good. Service was very good. Great venue and a must see if you're a visiting blues fan.

The music is good (live every night) and the food is not bad either. The emphasis is on southern food which means Cajun, but that was fine with me. I enjoyed gumbo and cornbread and a nice blue cheese burger. A good (but relatively small)...More

What a great atmosphere. It’s an intimate setting where you eat and drink while fantastic blues artists jam on stage, with vintage blues / rock memorabilia all over the place. Couldn’t ask for more. Loved it.

Not sure, but if i’ll be you I would expect not to pay the extra $10. Ask them to clarify when get there. The truth is, if you’re a fan the extra $10 won’t make a difference :)
