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.

Always heard about this locations, never actually been to one. If nothing else, go and sit at the bar and enjoy the music, which is what we did.

I was charged a cover and it was a dead night, My drink was average price but I didn't eat. In all for 2 drinks and cover charge I spent $40. The service was good, but not worth $20 a drink average. I felt like I was paying for an atmosphere that was absent.

Server Ke Airre did a very good job. Food is good as are the drinks. The music is LOUD. Almost made my ears ring. Hard to identify the music genre. Good but definitely wasn't blues.

Food is good. Prices are reasonable. They will cahrge you a cover charge even if you are there just to eat. The more crowded the restaurant, the more the cover charge goes up. I started in line and the cover was $5.00 but by the time I got to the hostess, the cover was 7.00. Bands take very long breaks.... More

Great crowd on an off night (Wed), or is there an off night in Nashville these days? Band was stellar, singer "on" and people actually listened. The kitchen was churning out some righteous looking entrees all evening long! Staff was on the ball and seemed to like what they were doing...it's contagious!
