Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We checked out many places and their menu options. We've noticed we don't tend to eat as much as we used to when we were younger, so this had some good options for "sharing" a meal. There were 2 different bands performing when we were there. Both were good. A couple years ago I had been here with a friend and we didn't have to pay a cover charge. This time, we each had to pay a $10 cover charge over and above the cost of food and drinks. The second band spent more time promoting their name and introducing members as well as informing us that for $20 they will play any song you want. Give me a break. We literally sat there for over an hour and they may have played a total of 20 minutes worth of music. If I had known they were going to charge a cover charge, we probably would have skipped it. The food was ok as well as the drinks. If you read the menu's and signs - almost every place on Beale Street has the best BBQ! LOL

$5 cover most nights. Live music is usually pretty solid. You get what you expect here - similar to Nashville bars...... live music and drinks/food. We saw Memphis Jack and enjoyed their music. A staple you need to visit if on Beale Street

I can’t say enough great things about the BB King All-Star Band. It was so great to experience live music again even socially distanced in masks. This is great place to get a taste of Beale Street with kids and teenagers. You get great southern food (we all opted for the pulled pork plates and NOT disappointed) and it’s a clean safe place to enjoy the vibes of Beale Street. We’ve been here before and will definitely visit again.

I love BB KING! After visiting I can say the thrill is gone. Very slow service. After we sat down we waited a half hour. Finally went to the bar and ordered drinks and food. A 10 dollar cover charge each is fine but the band kept asking for a 20 dollar bill with your request on it. Actually saying come on don't be so cheap! Finally the bartender waved and I went to get my food. I've never felt like I was welcome or wanted,other than my money. The ribs were good,but not worth the insults

We went here for dinner after visiting Graceland during the day. There was a live band on which were brilliant, food was also excellent. Beale Street was pedestrianised on an evening with live bands which was very busy but really good.

Stopped in for a bite to eat and to hear some live Blues. We had the best time!

The BBQ ribs were the best we tried in Memphis. Including Central BBQ and Neely's. The shrimp and grits were also good.

Of course the music was outstanding but to top it off, Tony "TC" Coleman made an appearance and played a couple songs. GREAT NIGHT!

Excellent service, food was hot, fast and freshly made. Generous portions and extremely good. Especially the BBQ and BB King sauce.
Not necessarily handicapped accessible so make sure if needed you tell them in advance.

It was such a pity as the music was fabulous and we met great people but staff ruined the night. We were seated upstairs by a waitress and had just sat down when another "highly strung and emotional" waitress came over to us and said we must move. The two staff then had argument and we were directed downstairs. We complained about the treatment but settled then into new table and really enjoyed the night, music and meeting people and having fun. But then, our waitress was continuously not available and when we tried to pay the bill at the door...she then arrived all upset and RUDE!! We complained to the manageress who seemed completely overwhelmed and it did seem very weak management and that the staff did what they wanted!! Other locals also told us that they don't go to this venue because of similar issues. Needles to say, despite great music...we will never return

stopped by for lunch plus to see the club setting. We got a great table with booth seating. Prices were reasonable. Live music was nice but it was high school kids so...not what we expected at all.

Our greeters were very polite; from the door to our seats. All four of us ordered a different meal: shrimp Po Boy, Shrimp & Grits with house salad, ribs and grilled shrimp, Texas toast with garlic mash potatoes...drinks and more drinks. Every drops was delicious. The Band is awesome and came around to greet the patrons. We’re having a wonderful time and the service is very fast...most definitely 5-Stars. Thank you BB King for being one of our highlights in Memphis.
