My sister and I saw a concert here in the Parish Room. It was a lively, fun place with a great New Orleans themed atmosphere. The concert was amazing!!! This venue is perfect for any occasion....bachelor/bachelorette party, weekend getaway, date night, you name it! The staff is very friendly. Just be sure if you're picking up tickets at will call...

The entertainment was incredible!! The singers and musicians were top drawer. Had everyone on their feet. I would highly recommend you take this in if in NOLA on a Sunday. The food was average at best. Enough said about that. It is the show that you go for.

If in town, check to see if the outdoor stage behind the building has entertainment. We went from 4:00 to 8:00PM and there was a great little band with no cover charge. You sit at outdoor tables with tent overhead, so it's rain or shine. It's small and intimate, so a great venue to watch a bluesy band. And there... More

Such a classic location for anyone that loves blues and rock music. We watched a blues singer (Dominic), had ribs, and a few drinks. Great tunes, fall off the bone ribs, and beverages helped quell the NOLA heat. Just a great day.

I probably would have given this gospel brunch 3 stars if I hadn't been to Myrtle beach last year. Food was great in Myrtle Beach and the music was awesome and, yes, it was actually Blues! We were so excited to take our son and his family to house of Blues. They were just moving to New Orleans where they... More

My family and I attended the Sunday Gospel Brunch in Orlando in early June and absolutely loved it. The food and music were perfect! We went to New Orleans last week and couldn't wait to take other family members to the show...big mistake! The New Orleans food was wonderful but the cast and song selection was horrible.

I went for the Gospel Brunch and it was very entertaining. The local talent/band really outdid themselves!!! On the other hand, the food was meh. There was a large selection, but the flavor was lacking. The chicken and waffles were disappointing. The waffles had a weird taste and the chicken had no taste. The carved brisket was very fatty and... More

Thank you for taking time to write a review about your visit to Gospel Brunch. The unlimited mimosas and live music are definitely a draw plus the bread pudding is a house favorite. I'm sorry not all of our options were to your liking. We aim to provide delicious food for all taste buds. More

I saw ToTo at The House of Blues... It is a nice venue. Not overly clean but it is NOLA so it is kind of expected in that area. The sound was great and not too loud (more a testament to ToTo than the venue). I would go to other shows there for sure.... The size makes it cool since... More
