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).

Great music - loud and proud. Saw two very entertaining performers. Cover charge is minimal. Ribs were very good and garlic mashed potatoes very tasty. Seating is typical for a blues club-- good viewing from most spots. Bar seating had best front view of stage. Upper balcony seating available. Tables and chairs were dirty, as was bathroom. But this is... More

Booked in advance via Open Table but great confusion when we arrived. Got take upstairs, then downstairs to the back of the room to the worst seating area. I explained for the umpteenth time we had booked then eventually got a table a bit closer to the stage. Service was ok, food reasonable and music was great. Managed to see... More

Fall off the bone ribs and good sized portion of fried pickles. Band Memphis Jones is good and give a lot of local music history between sings. Wanted good food and music and we found it here.

Pleasantly surprised! We were hungry and tired. Walking around with so many choices of places to eat, we were drawn by music and decided to stop here. Table wait was less than 5 minutes. Our table was tucked away, far enough for kids not to complain of loud noise and close enough for adults to enjoy view and music. Food... More
