I was very impressed with how well The House of Blues accommodated my special dietary requirements. Our server, Alex, was very helpful while making selections; he even had the chef, Omar, come to the table to listen to my needs and offer suggestions as well. Not long after, I was presented with a delicious meal...the best one I have had... More

Been a few times, always had good food, but food this time was poor, kids mac and cheese awful, my beef was well done even though asked for rare, and the salad very bland, certainly won't be returning.

Our first time here even though we had seen the restaurant many times, it was because of a Restaurant.com offer that tempted us to visit. Really glad we did. Great food, great atmosphere and Alex our waiter was excellent

Wait time for a Saturday night was an hour but the service and food were very good. A decent price for a family of 4.

My husband and I love the House of Blues Orlando. It's such a rare gem to find a place to see great bands. We've enjoyed Pat B, OAR, Tonic, Dishwalla, Vertical Horizon and many others here. It's the first schedule we look at when planning a date night!

This was consistently good and we ate there 4 times over our 2 week stay and made sure it was our last meal in Florida too. The Jambalaya is amazing - add the extra shrimp! Burgers, steak, chicken we tried it all and it was fantastic quality. Service was great EVERY time and the cocktails were good too. If you're... More

We where told there would be a wait which we explained we where more than happy to do and where met... More

I have wanted to attend the gospel brunch at House of Blues for YEARS! Let me just say I don't know why I waited for so long what an AMAZING experience! The hospitality of the ambassadors from the moment you walked into the door to the moment you left was top notch service! The brunch spread ranged anything from eggs... More

We visited the House of Blues on our recent stay in Orlando. First tip, book ahead! HoB is located in Downtown Disney which means thousands of people looking for a place to eat. Online booking is possible through the website / open table and is well worth doing as when we arrived, walk ups were being told that the wait... More
