Good Food. Very nice service. Super selection of Whisky. Good value for money. On Saturdays live music after 10:30pm. Soul, funk, rock.

Blues Kitchen had a busy, fun, friendly vibe. Our waiter was lovely and attentive. Food was tasty. The only down side was no separation between the dining area and the bar and the music being so loud that it was impossible to hear each other.

The menu is nice and small and the burgers were out-of-this-world tasty!
Our server was super friendly too.
Will return another time when we’re not in a rush and can enjoy the live music

Amazing service, fast and friendly! Nice ambience but it was a little too dark inside. Food was good and milkshake was wonderful! Would definitely recommend.

It’s a great place, nice food, decent cocktails but blimey do they pack them in on a Saturday night. The live music is brilliant but you can’t really dance as there’s no room.

The staff were fantastic - they were all really helpful, friendly and efficient. The food was good and the whiskey menu extensive. My only gripe would be the band only played one set.

On our to do list for sometime and finally our first time here. Exciting menu with some exemplary items. Of course we over ordered. Really hard not to but was a birthday meal so we did. Brisket burgers and Slabs of Brisket and chips were the order of the day. Huge portions and rather tasty food. Drinks too were quirky but good. Ox cheek starters were sublime. Planning our next visit but need a good excuse.

Really lovely evening with amazing food! Only criticism is that the waitress didn’t sing happy birthday to party member despite request made on booking and when confirming booking. This would’ve been the icing on cake.

Great atmosphere, great place to go with friends. Food and service was excellent. The only minor negative was the wine hadn't been chilled enough! Other than that, we loved it! Will visit again soon! :0)

Just love it here ...... have been to Shoreditch and Camden which are both good places, but Brixton is the best.
Good food, music always great, fantastic atmosphere, but the staff, hmmmm, what can I say, they are just 'The Best' so friendly and nothing is to much for them :)
If you've not been here, you are missing out, if you have been here, am sure you'll agree.

Visited here for the first time with 3 of friends. The food was amazing. Probably the best chicken I've had, my other half had ribs and they were so juicy, everything with the food was perfect. The oreo doughnuts were instanely good too. The staff and service was great and the staff have a great sense of humour there.

Really nice time with my sister here on a Friday evening. The atmosphere was welcoming and lively, but not too much. The food was delicious too. Especially the spinach dip!

Mel the manager and staff were amazing. We had an issue with our main course being delayed and Mel picked it up straight away.

I've been to the Shoreditch branch a few times before, but Brixton in my opinion ticks all the boxes and this will now be my branch of choice.

Well done Mel and staff

Had a great experience at Blues- the food really impressed me it was so much better than I anticipated, and the service was one of the best I've ever received in London! Cannot recommend this place enough.

Would recommend for a drink, blues or BBQ, not brunch. Out of 6 poached eggs on the table, 1 was runny, 5 were fully set and one was straight up cooked through like a hard boiled egg. Also, high tables are bizarrely designer, chairs are uncomfortable and a lot higher than the bench

Although the table wasn’t ready on time as it was super busy the staff were extremely kind and offered us drinks on the house without even asking! Would definitely come back. Great staff and great place and great food!

Had a great night for my boyfriends birthday. The restuarant was exceptionally busy however the staff were fantastic at managing expectations and keeping us informed if there were to be any delays. Big thanks to Josh what a fab guy!! Can't wait to return.

The food was delicious. Did not take too long to arrive and was hot. All members of staff were so nice and available. Would definitely come back for food!
The live music area was way too crowded, it was difficult to enjoy the music as literally no space, unknown bodies rubbing against yours all the time.

The most outstanding service. Wonderful food (although both that and the drinks are slightly overpriced) and great music and atmosphere. Worth going to for special occasions.

The service here is amazing ! Everyone starting with the door staff is welcoming and the waiting staff are exceptional. Josh was very attentive and made sure that we were well looked after during our sitting. Food was great, cocktails great !
Only disappointment was the limited dessert menu but hey-I didn’t have room for that anyway given the portion sizes of the starter and main !
Definitely recommend this restaurant !

Great venue with a real buzz. Had a meal before the music started upstairs which was Led Zeppelin 2 which was outstanding.
Meal and service was friendly and efficient. We both had the vegan burgers which were very tasty.

We had a really great evening at Blues Kitchen. The waiting staff were exceptionally friendly and the food was great. To cap off an excellent evening, we really enjoyed the band that were playing. A fantastic evening and very good value with £5 cocktails!

Love the place. The menu doesn't change much (some specials would be nice to change things up a bit) but what they do, they do really well. The staff are always so lovely there. They're energetic and friendly. there's not enough of them though. We waited a long time for drinks and food and for our order to be taken. Staff were great at trying to make up for waits and mistakes made but I think they need more feet on the floor! :)
