Could not visit Beal Street without popping into B.B. King's place! It was crowded, but we made our way to the dance floor in front of a great cover band.

Eat someplace else. Overpriced food. Music is just alright. Substandard service. Cover charge. Better places nearby noted on TripAdvisor.

Keep hoping it will be better, return each year but the acts are very ordinary and there is nothing of the "real" music I get from visiting smaller Delta towns and juke joints in Mississippi.

We didn’t need reservations. We just walked in. But I bet we were there around that time on a Saturday. Check the website, see if there is any info. DON’T GIVE UP YOUR SEAT
