    Come here for the blues, not the food. Bring cash for the beer bucket guy if it's crowded, you may never make it back from the bar!

    The food was excellent. I had the jumbo crab cake entree and my fiancé had Steak with mashed potatoes & spinach, BOTH plates went back clean. Definitely will be back.

    Excellent Prix Fix menu for $22.95 til 7pm & signature "The BB" which is a beer and burger special for $9.95 with each additional beer being 2 dollars. You can sub the beer for a soft drink. Must go.

    Concert venue inside BB King's (with an awesome Beatle's brunch every Saturday!). For something more low-key, try Lucille's Grill (the lounge next door), which has free live jazz every night.

    I went there during reggae night. I had a great time. The line was long however, it was moving smoothly. Some of the bartenders aren't as fast as other in terms of serving people drinks.

    The best view is from either a booth or right up front. If you grab a booth, be sure to have the 38oz sharing steak. – Pete from One eskimO

    Try to stay away from the expensive, subpar food if you can. Ordered a burger, (unseasoned) chicken and waffles and 2 drinks and dropped over 80 dollars. The show was amazing though.

    BB Kings Ale is made by Magic Hat and tastes just like their #9 beer just a bit hoppier. The hot wings are expensive but very good.

    The music venue equivalent of a U.S. airline. They cram you in like sardines and give you mediocre food served by indifferent staff. Unless there is someone you absolutely love playing here, avoid.
