Bouncer Get a Life! – First time there with the family..Had a great time...It was a Thursday..the food was excellent...fried pickles and sweet potato puffs were to die for...the only thing that left a bad taste in my mouth was the bouncer..He rushed out out the door around midnight n had a smart comment to say as he passed our table...mind you the club doesnt close til 1:00am on Thursdays...I say to the bouncer do your job...quit whining...If you hate ur job then find something else...because your making the club look bad...other than that...It's a must Go!

BB KINGS???? THE VERY BEST!!!!, ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!! – HOWDY!!!

BBKings? The very best that nashville has to offer!!!

If you wanna treat yourself like a king then thats the place to be!!!

Its really a great gift from heaven and a true blessing to be there on a friday night!!!

The band is fantastic!!!, The food is delicious!!!, The place is majestic!!! And the girls wild and hot!!! What else can a man ask for???

I would recomend a long island tea and the 12 oz. USDA BOURBON GLAZED RIBEYE 28

Hand cut to our specifications, this is the juiciest and most flavorful of all steaks. Fire-grilled with brown sugar bourbon

glaze and well marbled for peak flavor. Served with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans

Don't go for food/sevice. Good house band. – Don't go for the food or service. Food and alcohol are way overpriced. $8 for a warm draft beer. Steak was ordered medium rare but came out well done, which was sent back and this was after an hour and a half wait after we ordered. Salmon ($19) was ok, nothing special. Rice was over cooked and they must have scraped the bottom because it was hard. Paid $5 a piece to get in at 6:50. Server was nice but very slow to get drink orders and never refilled our waters. The manager did take the steak off our bill but after $10 to get in and a $62 bill (that's without the steak) I would expect more for $72. House band was very good...the only good thing from the night.

BEWARE!UNSAFE!!! worst club EVER – BE WARY! We went to have a good time. All we encountered 100% unsafe environment. I had items stolen directly off my body. When we asked employees and managers for help (as we knew who had done it), we were confronted with rudeness and 100% lack of helpfulness. I would NEVER go to this club again. Well, maybe if I had items I wanted to get rid of but didn't have the time to drop off at goodwill. I cannot warn you enough about this place. I also know someone who was drugged at this club (which I only found out about after my experience).

BB would be ashamed. – I would like to inform you of the behavior, attitude, and lack of courtesy and concern we received from your Bar Manager, Susan Zoesch, during an atrocious experience we had at BB King's Nashville during the BB King concert on Dec. 9th.

I realize that the fifty dollar per person standing room ticket does not entitle anyone to VIP treatment, but I believe it entitles the purchaser to at the very least have the PA speakers for the standing room section to be turned on. The service we received for our meal and drinks for the 2 hours prior to the sound debacle was courteous attentive and professional. When sound did not improve by the third song of BB's set (not to mention the completely inaudible opening act), I felt I was not getting my money's worth and asked to see a manager. The bartender (he was a young man with tatoos and was working the back bar) was very courteous and agreed that sound was a problem, and immediately went to get the manager. He informed me that he was already speaking to my wife and directed me to the lower bar cash register were Susan and my wife were. Susan stated (her words) "There are plenty of people up there with your same problem. There is a problem with sound." When we asked for a refund for our tickets and to leave, Susan turned to enter my credit card information and used a curse word meaning cow manure. We were well within earshot. We were absolutely mortified. There was no apology or any attempt to rectify any part of the situation. I am a lifelong fan of BB King. I was heartbroken.

Shame on you for being representatives of one the greatest ambassadors of American Culture and Class, to treat B.B.'s fans, in B.B.'s club, in B.B's presence, so shabbily. I pray that the giant of a man that BB King is, never hears of how his fans, (and patrons of his namesake establishment,) received so little consideration, or courtesy. For Shame.

Fun, and great live bands.... – This is a great place to go with a group of friends for dancing and music. Admittedly I couldn't tell you what the food tastes like, but the bar makes a mean Washington Apple and the band is always good, the music is mainly geared toward a more mature blues, 70's loving, R&B kind of crowd. But that's what keeps us coming back.

Very Nice – I am from California and I came to Nashville to visit a friend. We made a few stops and this was one of them. This is a very nice place. Maybe a more mature crowd. Friendly staff, good music. A great place to have a drink, listen to music, and just enjoy. Not a wild or crazy place if that's what you are looking for. I would definitely go again!

B.B. King's Caliente Night is the best salsa nights in town if you don't like crowded places – I went to BB Kings on Saturday for the salsa nights downstairs, Caliente Nights and I was very pleased with the friendly atmosphere. The bartenders and the band member were very nice. I liked that is was not very crowded and the dancing floor was very open. This is the only place that has a live latin band in town. I love that. Check it out!
