    For the price, the food was extremely poor. I was expecting something special, and it was really more like pub food. Also, it is appropriate for people who are Disneyland with their kids and want to go get an $11 beer while their kid eats french fries. The service was great.

    Let me begin by saying our family is a big fan of all things House of Blues. The food was exceptional and the service was great. The young lady (Sweet was her name tag) was amazingly helpful and professional. However, the concert was a let down. When we purchased the tickets it allowed us to pick seats but upon arrival we were told it was standing room with the exception of some seats. You can imagine how disappointed we were since nothing indicated that our seat numbers were not actually seats??? Love to see better communication in advance regarding this for future purchase of tickets.

    Very disappointed. Made a reservation as we are from Canada and wanted to experience a place with atmosphere and music. They did not reserve a table for us and when they did seat us they put us in their cafeteria style eating area. No style or bluesy look to the pace and no atmosphere or charm at all. I don't care if Chef Aaron Sanchez is an atraction there this shows poorly on him and the establishment. Did not look or feel like a House of Blues and did not look like what is on their website. We ended up leaving before being attended to as the staff was poorly organized and I didn't plan on eating in a cafeteria. I cannot recommend this place to anyone.

    If you are going to Disneyland or California Adventure Park, dining at House of Blues in Downtown Disney is a great option because it's so close and you don't have to leave the park at all (major time saver). I would definitely recommend making a reservation prior to dining. The restaurant is quite loud, as there is a bar here. The food is pretty good. I ordered a sandwich and another person ordered a burger which were both on brioche buns. We thought the sandwich and burger were a bit on the small side for the price, but still reasonable. Our server was very nice and even offered to split our bill for us.

    The only issue is that the entree arrived just a moment after the appetizers were served. We had to send it back so we could enjoy our appetizers and not feel rushed. The dessert menu is very meager.

    The service was great. The appetizers where really good. Then we got to the main dishes. Not good at all. My wife ordered the blacken shrimp salad and it was soaked in oil the shrimp was good she could even eat the salad part except the top. I ordered the spicy pasta and it had no flavor the chicken was plain and the sauce was missing seasoning the only thing you could taste is a little hot sauce.

    We dined at Crossroads before a show at House of Blues. Our waitress was fantastic. We were impressed with the local beers. We enjoyed our food and it was nice that they were really flexible with adding our friends who showed up. They do have a kids menu, though the food is a little more towards trying to make the kids meals something like adults would like rather than as plain as picky eaters might like. I place the blame on my picky eater for that ;-)

    My husband and I were there for our anniversary. We have an almost 2 year old and this was only our 2nd night out since she's been born. After researching we decided to go to HOB for dinner and "Friday night live". We scheduled our reservations for 8:30 because I figured we'd have perfect time to eat and drink before the music started. I had talked to the very nice waitress and she accommodated us perfectly. However, the band went on an hour late. Usually would have been no biggie but having to sit there so long after dinner without music was kind of a bummer! By the time they finally started and played a few songs we were ready to leave. Disappointed in the ambiance and not what I expected but the food was good and the servers were great.

    Ate here for dinner. Even though we had reservations, in order to dine inside there was a 15 minute wait. Took an outdoor table bc we had plans after dinner and couldn't wait. Our server was very friendly-- we were lucky to get her bc no one else smiled there. Still, she was busy, and so our meal was really drawn out longer than it needed to be. Kids pasta was pretty tasteless and dry, BBQ pulled pork filling and grilled chicken were filling and hot-- just what we needed, but altogether the flavor wasn't anything noteworthy. Table outside ended up being nice bc we could be part of the vibrant downtown Disney scene, and enjoy outdoor music. I'd go back, but just for drinks & apps, with plans to sit and stay a while .

    Dinner and drinks before a show at the House of Blues. A perfect, but pricey, evening out. Drinks were a bit pricey: $15 for a cocktail and $8 for a draft beer. In the concert venue it was even pricer: $9 for a PBR, which is a very cheap quality beer. The food was very tasty with quality ingredients, but $15 for a burger and fries is still high.

    We ate before a House of Blues show. Service was friendly and fast. Food was good. The real benefit of eating here is you can "pass the line" to get into a show -- basically a Fast Pass. This is a really nice perk. Beware!! Parking at Downtown Disney is horrible. We arrived 25 minutes early and we still missed our reservation because we could not find a place to park.

    Worst finger in my life along with the worst service. Was suppose to be dinner and a shiw as stated when I made my reservations that were useless also. Waited 45 mins to be seated then the worst service and good was cold. They did and had nothing that I paid for as stated. Ruined my friends birthday dinner and evening. For 4 people our bill was over $250.00 for4 dinners and one drink a piece. Overall rating I would give would be a minus -0. Wouldn't recommend it my dog.

    This is the second time we have gone since the new menu has been rolled out, and it doesn't give much choice?? We spent a good 20 minutes trying to decide on what might be good? Being our second visit with 2 different couples, who had the same problem, I don't think we will go again. It used to be a good place to have dinner before our concerts, but unfortunately we will have to eat somewhere else next time.

    We had tickets for a show at the House of Blues and decided to eat dinner there as a matter of convenience. Even though we had reservations we did not get a table for 20 minutes. The food was decent and the service was very good but the place was LOUD!! Packed and energetic on a Friday night but way too noisy to really enjoy a meal. Next time we'll choose one of the other options in Downtown Disney.

    The food was very slow coming to the table. But the waitress was friendly. She hooked us up with pass the line tickets for our show. We where very happy with that. Over all it was an ok dining experience except for the booth behind us had little kids with their parents. And they where the parents who don't care if the kids scream and holler. I think there should be no kids allowed into a bar even with food. Kinda ruined the experience of being there.

    My family, including a 15 year old, really enjoyed our meal and experience at House of Blues, Anaheim.The food was exceptional, more than your average restaurant fare. I had the shrimp and grits with a garlic chipolte creme sauce. Delicious! My husband enjoyed the Jambalaya with blackened shrimp. He loved it. My daughter said her club sandwich was the best meal of the trip. The ambience is casual, laidback and welcoming. The bar looked inviting and probably really gets crowded into the evening. House of Blues is fine for families but you should probably eat dinner a little earlier to avoid the bar scene. Excellent dining experience and highly recommended.

    Fries tasted like rewarmed frozen. Burger was the turkey part Jamaican, too salty. BBQ pork sliders were cold and the blackened chicken street tacos were tough and seed rewarded not juicy like at the Florida crossroads. This one in Anaheim needs to have some better quality food put out to the customer. The waiter was fine, no complaints.

    This restaurant is in Downtown Disney, which is a part of the Disneyland Resort, IMHO...and my party of 7 was seated separately on a Saturday evening (even after a table opened up right next to mine!!) We were seated at 2 separate tables far from each other that seated 4 people... Hmm, it didn't seem like any employee was too concerned about our positive experience. My steak salad was good, my friend's macaroni and cheese was cold. Another friend's bill said her suggested tip was $10.67 for her meal that was $10.74!!! We all got a good laugh at that one... Jordan saved the evening, though, and ended up seating my 4 friends at a table next to mine.

    This location is in Downtown Disney so the atmosphere is very loud and busy. The food is good and they are making an attempt to elevate their menu. Dessert, specifically, the chocolate mousse, was not done well. It had good flavor but a grainy texture that was wrong for a mousse. The service was very good and although we didn't ask, our server had the manager come speak to us about the dessert. They also took the charge for the mousse off of our bill, again without us asking. Overall, if you don't mind a boisterous environment, this is a good choice for a meal in Downtown Disney. Make a reservation if you don't want to wait!

    Dined at Crossroads Anaheim in Downtown Disney on 3/8/14 in order to Pass the Line for the bight's HIM show. Reservations for 4:00 but our taxi was late picking us up due to that weekend's convention. I was very easily able to bump up to 4:45. We arrived at 4:32 and were sat immediately. Our drink orders were taken promptly as well as our dinner orders. Our waiter was polite, helpful and answered all our questions. He checked in on us frequently but not so much that he was a nuisance. Our party ordered the half rack of ribs, a grilled chicken Caesar salad and the Classic Club Sandwich and everything was delicious! Great way to grab dinner before a show and get in the venue before the ridiculous crowds. The venue is tight so this is a must!

    We had reserved ahead of time and requested a booth. Once we got there we were told they were waiting to bus the table and for me to have a seat at the bar, as I waited I watch the table empty of people but full of dirty dishes for over a half hour? Why? I talk to the hostess "Amy" and she said she was just waiting for it to open. FInally after a long wait it was open, we order waters at first, when my water came for some messed up reason there was a ton of salt poured into the glass, my husband tasted it and confirmed and we told the waiter who took it away but never offered another. We got our food we order which was ok but my daughters was the wrong sides we asked for.

    Service was slow and forgetful. Started with artichoke spinach dip. It was the best part of meal. I had the Shrimp Po Boy. Although the shrimp seemed hand battered, the roll was too big, and dry. Jambalaya, was dry and flavorless. Overall, a real letdown. We had skip the line vouchers, so we had a $20.00 credit each, could never imagine paying $80.00 for that dinner, including 3 glasses of wine. We will go elsewhere next time.
