I went to watch a show and have some food in a Saturday afternoon. I ordered shrimps as appetizers and ribs as the main meal. The shrimps were good but I was very disappointed with the ribs. Band was ok, but too small. There was one guy in the guitar and a lady singing in some of the songs. It's... More

Short walk from whydham. Staff was very warm and friendly. Music was great and I can't say enough about their shrimp appetizer with jalapeño corn bread! It was delicious! If you get a chance stop in you won't be sorry. Wish we had a HOB close to our hometown. I definitely will return.

What a great venue to have a night out and listen to some blues! We had a conference and one of the nights we went to the House of Blues. We had buffet style dinner, and took up the 3 levels of the club. The seating is great to hear and see the singers and the character of the building... More

I loved this place. It was lively, the food was great and there was good music. It made for a perfect evening. There was a crowd of all ages. There were actually a few families with young children there for dinner (about 6 pm on Friday).

This is a lively place with some very good music. We stopped in for drinks and sat at the bar. The music was good with a lot of crowd interaction. No cover if you get there before 9 p.m.

Music so loud the table shook. It wouldn't have been so bad had the music been decent. It was no more blues than Mozart. Server very good and quick - the place was not jumping as it usually is mainly because of the music I would think. Food OK. Very disappointing as we have been there often and usually had... More

My husband and I went to the House of Blues for dinner with another couple on a Saturday night in February. We had no problem getting a table right away. The atmosphere is causal and the server was very friendly, helpful and prompt. I had narrowed my meal selection down to 3 items and he recommended the Southwest Chicken sandwich.... More

If you're deeling in need of spiritual uplift with your breakfast, then head for the House of Blues Gospel Sunday Brunch. The choir and solo performers are energetic, talented and excellent. The brunch itself is also very good with lots of fresh salads, peel 'n eat shrimp, bacon, pork sausages, fried chicken, scrambled eggs and plentiful side dishes. You may... More

Went here as a group on their Marti Gras "bead night". Thought the music was alright, the place itself ok, but the waitress we had, terrible personality. Just seemed like someone who didn't enjoy their job, and had no plans of faking it. Might have been a different experience if we had a different sever, but this was not the... More
