Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Tried to visit this legendary establishment on a Saturday evening but the queue to gain entry were enormous so we gave and and tried again on Monday evening. This time only half a dozen people a head of us. Initially sat at the bar and...had a couple of cocktails, the Lucille and a Hurricane. Both very sweet and £11 each before taxes and a tip. Given the chance of a table, we tried to pay off the bar tab but our server was quite tardy that evening. Once we moved to a table, ordered food : BB’s chopped Salad and Catfish bites. The food offerings in this area seem to be the same in almost every establishment and this was pretty average. What makes this place special is the band and guest artist. They were staggeringly good.More

We got here later in the evening about 8:00 pm. The hostess sat us at a big table. We were right up front from the live music. Had a great time. The music was great. Got catfish bites and they were good. The place was...clean and comfortable. Had a great experience here!More

Our first visit to Memphis and BB King's was our first restaurant. BB Kings provided us with everything we were expecting. Good food, good drinks and good music. While the bbq rib portions were ample, depending on what part of the rib you received determined...the amount of meat you were served. Suggestion, ask for the mid-rib section for the best selection and you will not be disappointed.More

We really never got in. I have been there a few years back and truly enjoyed myself. However, was surprised that the 4 of us would have needed to pay $40.00 to get in before we could even decide what to eat. So we felt...like to pay almost 1/2 of A$100 to get in. This was not the place for us. And it was good we did not go in. Some friends told us the music was sad and there were people in the rest room begging for more money. I hated to hear that because I always enjoyed the food there. Very disappointed, but I am sure they don't care. It is a money thing now everywhere, NOT service.More

Good meatloaf and great music. Considering how crowed it was the service was pretty good. There is a ground floor and a mezzanine.

Atmosphere 5 Star - Great music, Beale Street and Catfish dinner. It just doesn’t get any better than this! The band was fantastic and wait staff super friendly. The menu had everything and it was hard to choose but we came for the ribs and...fish! It did not disappoint!More

We ate at BB King's on Wed. 10 April. The BBQ Chicken was exceptionally scrumptious and juicy with a great smoky grilled flavor. The garlic potatoes and mixed vegetables were great. The Shrimp & Grits were delicious and very flavorful. We suffered the $10/person cover...charge and the restroom valet looking for tips. The wait staff were great and the band was reasonablely good. The music volume at the back corner table was tolerable. Check for food, beers, tax & tip came to $73 for 2 people + $20 for cover charge.More

We went for the music and were so disappointed by a band that you would expect to see on a cheap cruise. This was double the entry fee of other venues on Beale Street and by far the worst we visited. The band wasn’t helped...by a poor layout. They hustled hard for tips. The place had broken furniture and toilets which needed a good clean. We won’t be back!More

The band (Divercity) didn’t respect the audience and made a number of sarcastic comments. Played requests all night, so didn’t really show off their instrumental skills. They played a 40 minute set and took a 35 minute break. One server was rude - when I...requested a table change, he said “That would be a no”, and was not polite at all. Another server we had was great, although both the drink and the food were missing things listed in the menu. The food was all right. Overall, they seem to be quite jaded.More

Good music bar - Would have been a five out of five if they did not have someone in the toilets asking for money after you use them, no class at all.

BB King’s is definitely the best venue on Beale Street, as it just has a really great feeling when you walk in, eat your food, and watch the band that’s up playing. The staff is very nice, the food is excellent, and the bands are...comprised of some of the best musicians of Memphis. I got to meet a bassist from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Larry Hodges Jr, and BB King’s Granddaughter, Krystal King. This experience, along with my fantastic server, Joe, was worth 5 starsMore

Nice place with good music. The ribs were good and the service was good as well. Just be aware that there is a $10 cover charge even if you are eating here. So spend some time enjoying the music. Unfortunately the band seemed to take...a lot of breaks and the sets were short.More

Situated on the legendary Beales Street, said to be the home of Blues this was a brilliant place for good food and brilliant live music. Do note there is a small cover charge for visiting but worth it

I come here every time I visit Memphis from Oklahoma. Last time, it was my birthday (all girls)… this time, I bought my college student! I ordered the chicken sliders & he got the gumbo… WE LOVED IT! I had the loaded nachos last time...& it was BOMB TOO! We absolutely loved Emily, our waitress. She was not only cool, but very professional, polite & respectful.More

If you are on Beale Street, this is a must do experience, and best to reserve in advance. Food and drink are not over priced, and the music is exceptional, we watched two sets on a Sunday evening, We sat down just before 6pm, and...occupied our table until we left well after 10pm, without any pressure to vacate.More
