As I'm sure I said last time, this place is awesome. It's such a relaxed place to sit hand have a drink, whilst listening to some pretty fantastic live artists. The staff are brilliant and very friendly.
I remember hearing some criticisms of a change in the menu, some time back, but don't let that stop you eating here, the food is still fantastic.
It seems busy between 1700 and 1900 hrs, so if you're eating at this time, you'll probably have to wait (no problem, get a drink and listen to the music(a theme is forming here)). After this time it quietens down a bit and you can usually get a walk in table straight away.
I would recommend this place to anyone, give it a try.

You have to admire the House of Blues. On the Sunday we went, they had already had two sittings for Gospel Brunch, several sittings for meals and after our visit, several other sittings and queues for the adjoining club around midnight. I can imagine people are occasionally victims of their success (we tried two days earlier and would have had to queue inside for 45 minutes). For this visit, they got it right. We were given a pager to allow us to stroll around the area during a 15 minute wait. The table in the back room had a splendid view of the lake and the erupting volcano at the Rainforest Cafe. The decor was interesting (even by local standards), a friendly and efficient waiter, decent food (by local standards) and at reasonable prices. The soup was good although not up to Panera Bread quality and meals such as beefburger (remember rare tends to mean well cooked in this part of the world) and Cobb salad didn't disappoint. They didn't set the world on fire but we had the volcano and that was enough.

The house of blues is a great place to enjoy an amazing burger with fries. I went here with a group of friends an we were seated in the very back of the restaurant. The walk to our table was fun because there are so many interesting things to see on the walls. Once seated our waitress was very quick in taking our orders. Most at the table opted for "build your own burger" and we were all very habby with that coice. The beef is top quality and they cook it to perfection as ordered. We had medium, medium-rare, and well-done at the table and all were perfect and well-worth the money.

Certainly a place I will visit again when in Orlando.

Wow, this place has amazing food. When we got there the waiter was so friendly and helpful with ordering using our dining plan. I had the ribs,coleslaw,sweet potatoe fries, my son had the fried chicken and he had 3 nice size pieces. It was so much that we were able to take it back to our hotel and eat that for lucnh. the ribs were falling of the bone, and the cornbread is the best I ever had. It had jalapena and cheese in it and was so moist but not hot. It could be a bit pricey without the dining plan. For 3 people our bill was 125.00.thank god for dining plan.

The food is consistently good. Salads were fresh, and there is a variety. The blackened salmon probably was a little owner cooked.

Service was very good. Our waiter was always checking up on us.
