“Waiting for a Table isn't Too Bad”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

We had a 50 minute wait for a table, but they have a bar outside and live music to make the wait go by enjoyably. The trees offered shade and the atmosphere made you feel like you were in New Orleans. Once inside, the service was good and the food came out quickly. The best meal at the table seemed to be the Ribs. The cornbread appetizer was good too.

“Father's Day and Birthday Brunch”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

What a great time we had. Took my husband for Father's Day, My Mom, it was her 73rd B'Day on that Day, daughter-in-law, daughter, and son-in-law. Food was more than amazing, and could not sample everything. The show was great. We had seats in the pit area and it was great. My Mom really enjoyed herself and enjoyed the show. Great!

“Wow Great place”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Went to this place twice during our 2 week holiday in May 2013, the first time was a late evening on a Saturday, everywhere was full and decided to head here even if the walk was a long one. we were given a buzzer and said will be a 20 mins wait, we were fine with this, got a drink at the bar and sat down. The next thing the buzzer went off and only waited there for 10 mins. The place inside was wow and so cooling the food was excellent especially for me was the pork burgers with coleslaw. I have to have the second time we went there, that was our last day and it was a very hot day, think we stayed in there until we headed to the airport.
I will be back.....

“Not Just A Resteraunt”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

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.

“What a business”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

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.
