Drink with Lucille

We went for lunch so Beale Street was quiet. We had one of the speacial drinks "Lucille". The atmosphere was nice and the food was good and not very expensive.

This place was awesome. Of course the music was amazing! We had a table upstairs, and could comfortably see everything. The food was absolutely delicious. Our table had catfish, brisket, ribs, and the shrimp. Every every dish that came out was better than the last. The crawdaddy poppers are so good! And even with a big crowd for the show,... More

We came here on a Blues Soul & Jazz mission, the evening after visiting the Stax Museum. We sat at a rail directly in front of the stage where the King Bees were performing and had dinner & cocktails. The King Bees are the house band and a very crowd pleasing ensemble they are too - a tight & professional... More

We went to this famous place at 11pm Saturday night. For a Saturday night, it wasn't all that busy. Unlike any of the venues on Broadway in Nashville which were packed on Wednesday night, this place had a $7 cover charge. No big deal, the house band was supposed to be good. We found a table which a waitress quickly... More

This place has a small patio on Beale street to sit, have a beer, eat and watch the action. The catfish bites were melt in your mouth. We could hear the band playing inside out on the patio, made for a nice dinner. If we had wanted to go in and watch the band there was a very reasonable $3... More

Worth a stop. We stopped in at BB King's for a few drinks and some music. Got lucky with 2 great balcony seats overlooking the band. Band was great. Beer & Hurricanes. First hurricane was so good I ordered a 2nd. 2nd not as good as the first (watered down/maybe a different bartender).
