Buddy Guy's Legends Reviews & Ratings
The ambience was great, and we sat at a table with 2 very friendly tourists like us. The food was good. But the service from the staff was way too sloppy. Mistakes, not listening, practically throwing plates at us, seriously. I would have said 3 stars...but on the way out I learned that Mr. Buddy Guy himself is typically right there mingling with the customers whenever he can....now that is cool. Maybe next time I will see him.
The most amazing place which is historical in its own right. I was fortunate enough to enjoy a couple of songs performed by the man himself. Buddy Guy is a legend and I can't recommend enough a trip to his place. You will need to check if he is there if you want to meet him as he is often there in the evening. I heard that he does not perform much and we got very lucky! Food and service was outstanding.
5 stars for the hospitality and live music. The food was priced right for avg food fare..you probably won't remember the food as much as the music. The server was polite and patient with our group of 9. I wish there was a way of chipping in on musicians tip on my food bill. I rarely carry cash, so couldn't toss some Bill's in the bucket.
Buddy Guy's is an institution. Visited 3 other jazz venues in the city and this was by far my favorite. Huge space and we'll priced drinks. We didn't eat anything though many people were enjoying food. Had an awesome time and will most definitely be going back.
Without a doubt, Buddy Guy's Legends in Chicago is the premier Blues Club in the world. A heavy boast, but where else will you see the man himself hopping onstage with the evening's band, belt out a few numbers and share a few fascinating stories of his storied career ??? The club features a who's who of LIVE MUSIC talent seven days a week including a dinner set where patrons can enjoy some of the finest Louisiana cuisine to be found in the Windy City. Coupled with a family friendly atmosphere and walls lined with Blues History and treasures, a visit to Buddy Guy's Legends should be a number one priority when visiting Chicago !!!!
