We recently stopped in to dine at HOB. There was a wait but the hostess took our cell phone number and they text you when the table is ready. There were tables outside to wait with live music playing. We decided just to head in and check out the bar and there were plenty of seats there so we decided... More

My friend chose this place - it was nice but not very special. Their ribs were not fall off the bone but still tasty, good fries, interesting beers, my lobster pasta was okay. There was a lot of claw meat in it and breadcrumbs, but thankfully no bacon. The decor was interesting - lots of art - and plaster busts... More

I've been to this venue two times to see Fall Out Boy in June 2013 and Manchester Orchestra in April 2014. It has a decent layout but I wouldn't return to see another big name like FOB again, because it's just too small.

Downtown Disney is a bit of an odd precinct collection of restaurants and bars within the Disney megacity of resorts but a welcome one for adults who just need a break from all things Disney and instead enjoy some great music and some fabaulous lip smacking ribs and cold brews. Bit on the expensive side but I guess it's more... More

I was thinking just another National\Florida chain but the House of Blues was a pleasant surprise. The ribs were very good and the live music was as good as the food. Overall a bit pricey but my wife and I split the rack of ribs and it was plenty of food. We sat inside at the bar (no waiting) then... More

Nice place in Downtown Disney to listen to live music and soak in the house of blues mystique. This location has a concert hall and club located beside the restaurant. Our server was attentive but the food was very slow in arriving. The spicy chicken pasta was kind of bland but others in my group raved about the salmon, shrimp,... More

More of an immersive experience than a restaurant but given the location this is exactly what most would expect? Live music, interesting and diverse menu, well stocked cellar, erasable choice of bourbons and good choice of beers including local craft brews. Staff are suburb - attentive, polite and knowledgeable. One of my favourite haunts event if it's just to sit... More

This place is in the Downtown Disney area. Lively buzz. Two guys playing guitars and singing on porch by bar. We ate inside, good food and excellent service from our waiter Kendall. Then enjoyed a drink on the porch bar and listened to the guys. the two Daves, playing. They were truly excellent.
