We could not believe that we were the ONLY two people sitting in the courtyard. Another couple did come in, but they got tired of waiting, and left. Turns out, we were there right at the change of shift. After we were seated, we were given menus and napkins. I guess the server didn't wanna start an order, so just... More

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
