Since its' founding in 1995 Biscuits and Blues has made a home in the heart of San Francisco and has served hot biscuits and cool blues ever since. The venue is lucky to have some of the best Blues musicians in the world right here in the city, and has been honored time and time again as the Bay Area's #1 Blues club. For 20 years Biscuits and Blues has earned the respect of the Blues community and has been named America's #1 Blues nightclub by both the Blues Foundation and by the Bay Area Blues Society. Six nights a week Biscuits and Blues works to keep the blues alive with two shows a night. If it's Blues, they approve: Delta, Chicago, Texas, Boogie-woogie, Gospel, Old-time, Jazz, Brass and Soul. On any given night you'll find ribs on the grill, New Orleans-style Gumbo in the pot, and Creole Jambalaya hot off the pan. Biscuits and Blues also serves California wines, local microbrews and their signature selection of specialty cocktails from their full service bar.

Southern cooking so be prepared to get your fried chicken with yummy biscuits. The music acts are posted on their website, be sure to checkout the artists before you go. The venue is perfect for hearing some great acts in a more intimate setting

The band was very entertaining and the food was very flavorful, especially the shrimp and avocado ceviche. Highly recommended for a relaxing night out on the town!

Went there for a blues show and a late night snack. Saw a great bluesband and had the best chicken wings i have eaten. Too bad that there were few people and the staff was more eager to Go home than to serve more drinks.
