They are great at customer service but when packed for music venues they do need more servers. Overall though they do great and the food is also good. Acoustics are great and they have diff rooms for mtgs and such for diff size groups.

We went as a group, looking for a casual and fun evening. That's what we had. The service was very good and the staff both helpful and friendly, notwithstanding the crowd. The food was good, but not great. The same can be said of the music. The prices are reasonable for the overall experience.

The shows are good but it would recommend that you try and get seats the floor is overbooked. If not stay near to the bar but be prepared to put up with to many people.

I would recommend the seats if you are going to a concert here. I have been on the floor before, but it is just too many people. All the seats have a great view and you can get up and get a beer or drink with out waiting in long lines. The restrooms are better and no line. So, if... More

This place is great. Super cool/interesting wall art, not to mention a nice large space. Although I didn't have any alcoholic beverages I saw some folks at another table enjoying some very nice looking matinis! There is ample street parking as well as a lot nearby, but the lot was full. They have a nice little shop in the back... More

HOB offers a nice spot in the middle of Houston for the avid concert goer. While you may pay a little more for a ticket opposed to a larger venue, HOB hits it on the head with getting you right in the action. Expect some long lines (jumbled standing) for drinks but if you're there to see one of your... More

The House of Blues was a venue for a concert and they were very organized, had cocktail personnel on the floor to take care of guests. Their security people handled a situation quietly without interrupting the band. Very professional and we'll set up.

The Houston House of Blues is a good venue, with good acoustics and good sight lines in the balcony. Unfortunately, we picked Todd Rundgren for our initial trip there, and his concert was a huge disappointment. The elevator operator told us not to expect him to do any of his hits. What do these aging rockers think made them quasi-famous... More

This venue is small, but man you cannot beat it. I love this place, you can see the stage from anywhere in the place, but it is so convienant to walk a few steps to the bathroom The drinks are high, yes but most music venues are, plus you can get great pics of your concert!
