“Not "cast" personality, but reasonable dinner option”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2011

First strike against us was a large group, so we broke into two groups of 6. Didn't help speed up service at all. Our waiter had a one track mind, meaning he brought us things one at a time, at first kinda funny, by the end of the meal more like "Really?" Food was good, can't complain about the taste. The price was right too. Reasonable concidering we were at Downtown Disney, and this is the main reason we decided to eat here. One tip, if you want the souvinour glass with cocktail, ask for it or you just get a $10 drink in a plain glass.

“Good value in Downtown Disney”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

Reservations can be make through the Disney reservations even though it's not a Disney property. Was able to use a Restaurant.com coupon to make the bill very reasonable. Food was very good.

“Great Food, Great Atmosphere, Handles the Crowd!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2011

House Of Blues has great food, I was suprised when we were able to get in when all of the other "theme" restuarants still had lines (but we know the little one's love the Rain Forest / T Rex joints). We were able to walk right in and had an awesome meal! The staff was very friendly, the food was exceptional. I'll go back in a heart beat. Catfish fingers over sweet potato fries, AWESOME. Bluecrab & Artichoke dip, Excellent!! Not a single complaint. If you do have to wait, the outside bar has live music, how can you go wrong!?

“Average Pricey Family Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011

This was one of our destination restaurants for our family visit to Disney World. It was a mixed experience. The atmosphere was pleasant, but the food was disappointing for some, and we were surprised to find they had piped in pop music. Also, the meal seemed a bit pricey.
