“amazing food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Love the food here, typical american portions as well which is always a bonus!
very good service, although the restaurant was very busy we werent kept waiting for anything.
Good atmosphere
prices are pretty good and they also do a breakdown at the bottom of the bill of different amounts to tip in $ (ie 15%,18%,20%) for tourists which is a good idea as i always find the whole tip % thing a little confusing.
Would definitely go again!

“'Cross' over to the House of Blues”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

We chose here as many of the other restaurants at Downtown Disney were fully booked but we also like cajun style food.

We were really pleased. We pre-booked, turned up early and only had to wait about 10 mins. The Q overall was about 20 mins so not as bad as other places.

It's very interestingly decorated and perhaps not to everyone's taste but I loved the quirkiness. The waitress was great - very attentive and made suggestions. My husband had chicken wings which were very spicey and I had the tomato & basil flatbread - the tomatoes were yellow and very sweet which was yummy. Following on OH had Jambalaya which he rated highly and I had Aaron's Citrus Chicken - this was probably my fave meal of the holiday. So simple (chicken, garlic mash & seasonable veg) but so very tasty. We shared a piece of Key Lime Pie for dessert which was divine.

I'd like to go back to this restaurant when we have time to just relax and have a few drinks (we went the night before flying back to the UK so couldn't stay late), and listen to the music.

This was the most expensive meal (around 90 dollars all in) but well worth it.

“interesting place.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

We were planning to go planet Hollywood but the Que was massive and when we looked inside it was just packed and really noisy! So we went to the House of blues and it was a short wait and a great atmosphere! Really interestingly decorated and the menu had so interesting deep south dishes on it that u don't see in other places. It had a hard rock style gift shop that was cool as well but I did not see the night club but sometimes there is live music at the bar we noticed.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Our family of 4 ate in the restaurant & had a great experience. We loved the food & found the prices to be reasonable. We all really enjoyed our meals, even the kids. The restaurant has a great vibe & all staff were very friendly. We did not get to experience the night club, given we had the kids with us, but it appeared to be rockin' based on the number of people in line.

“Excellent meal, best burger in Orlando”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

I went here with my family (3 teenage kids) in September 2013. We had eaten here in the past, on a previous holiday to Orlando but this time the food was much improved. The waitress (Diane) was excellent, very knowledgeable and friendly. Three of the party ordered the 'Juicy Lucy' which is a cheese filled burger with extra cheese and jalepenos. Absolutely delicious and the best burger we ate whilst in Orlando. The corn bread was also absolutely yummy amd the Bourbon bread pudding fab. The waitress told us the menu was reformatted in 2011, and in my opinion, it is much improved. Only one thing missing is a few signature cocktails, or this would been a five star review!
