“Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

Great atmosphere, really good food and friendly staff. Order the cornbread! Unfortunately there was no entertainment when I was there but it is probably a fun place on the weekends.

“Southern inspired food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

I went to House of Blues on a whim during a recent trip to Cleveland. The restaurant has dimmed lighting, good music, and friendly staff. The food was excellent, many twists on traditional Southern dishes. I honestly loved everything I ordered (adobo shrimp over sweet jalapeno cornbread and the fish of the day- salmon- with roasted vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes), and my waitress stated they recently changed up their menu. I'm not sure what it was like previously, but I was quite impressed with the current list of items. The food was quality, with each dish clearly being made from scratch, and the flavors complimented each other perfectly. It was a bit pricey, but the quality of the food was worth the cost. I would definitely go to House of Blues again the next time I'm in Cleveland.

“Touch of the south”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

I go to the House of Blues in just about every town I visit, and they are always great. This one was different because if the Aaron Sanchez menu. Delish southern food but avoid the corn bread, tastes more like yellow cake or Jiffy Mix. Really Aaron?!

“Great Rock and Roll bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

Came down from Canada for a concert that was hosting at the house of blues. Didn't get a chance to eat ,but definitely had a few beers. Bud Light was going for 9 bucks a pop, which is very steep, considering. But i guess you're paying for the location. The bartenders were very friendly, and the security also. I really loved the layout of the house of blues, and wouldn't mind returning for another concert.

“Always a Fun Stop in Cleveland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

The House of Blues is a great stop when visiting Cleveland, Ohio. The House of Blues is located on Euclid Avenue in downtown Cleveland within a vibrant entertainment district. Concerts are held here daily, but to focused on the restaurant. The restaurant serves gourmet bar food and it's delicious, even though you pay a bit more. Happy Hour is actually a good time to visit, as they have pub fare and drink specials. The atmosphere is typical of a House of Blues with painted murals and old wood accents. The staff and bartenders are great too, as they have a good time interacting with their patrons. Overall, the House of Blues is always one of my favorite stops in Cleveland for a nice meal and beverage.
