Saw Sarah McCoy at HOB during French Quarter Fest. We walked past the venue hundreds of times during previous visits without entering. I'm glad we finally did. The venue is intimate, the staff are fantastic and the location is perfect. House of Blues has just been added to our "must see" list for future visits. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

My friend and I had a blast! We are not church-y people but we wanted to experience some soulful music at the House of Blues and we needed somewhere to go for Easter brunch, so this was a perfect combination! The quality of the music was fantastic and the buffet brunch was equally impressive. The unlimited mimosas didn't hurt! The... More

We enjoyed a full buffet with breakfast (eggs, sausage, bacon, grits, chicken & waffles, orange and cranberry juice), lunch(sliced brisket, baked chicken, pasta salad, jumbo shrimp), and cheeses and fruit. Then the performance began with a live band singing gospel and inspirational music. The music and singers were great and they were very interactive with the crowd. This was a... More

My husband and I got a few drinks at the bar next door and brought them in to see Bustout Burlesque. The show was amazing and hilarious-- we laughed so hard, gasped, cheered, and sang aloud along with the crowd and performer. The show itself was one of our favorite things about New Orleans-- I recommend it to everyone. The... More

To be honest...I wasn't expecting a great meal! I thought it would be like any chain restaurant where the food was just okay. I was totally wrong. To start we had the "Voodoo Shrimp" which was my very favourite dish during my visit to New Orleans. It was amazing! I followed that with a burger and a side of gumbo.... More

Fantastic buffet with lots of choice from scrambled eggs to jambalay, well cooked and well presented. Tea, coffee, orange juice, Mimosa cocktail etc were readily available and refilled as often as you wanted. The Gospel singing was amazing and very uplifting, everybody joined in and a good time was had by all. We are going again next Sunday.
