    Local bands, that is! What fun to go enjoy surprisingly good food - GET THE VOODOO SHRIMP (And a side order of cornbread to sop up the extra sauce) - along with music by local bands and artists.

    I asked for a medium rare burguer and it took nearly 25 minutes to be served and it was raw. And by raw I mean RAW. They didnt charge me but I would expect something extra (complimentary drinks or something). They were very apologetic and the service itself (other than the long wait for the food) was great.

    Menu choices are typical bar types (burgers, chicken fish) in the $10-20 range. Beer and drinks are charged a premium which is ~ $2 more per drink than most places especially during 5-6 pm which is happy hour in most places. Food was what was expected but smaller in portion (3 shrimp with the fried grits), expected more for the cost. Servers were nice and cooperative.

    We got great service from the seating crew, from the floor manager, and especially the waiter (Armando). The food was great. We had Juicy Lucy and St. Louis Ribs. You can't go wrong. However, I was astonishingly disappointed with the sound system. This is the House of Blues! You would think that they would have good equipment! We were there for Wes Robbins and the music was great. The sound was frustratingly terrible. How can that happen? You would think that the management would stop everything and make it right. They didn't.

    After reading others' reviews, my expectations were pretty low, but we really wanted to see the performers that night so we took the chance. We had a great experience at both the restaurant and the concert. Our server, BJ, met us at the door and could not have been more attentive. The Voodoo Shrimp were excellent, as well as the "Jucy" Lucy burger and the Shrimp Po Boy. Our server got us a "jump the line" receipt when we were finished with dinner. Overall, an excellent experience.

    We were going to a concert at the House of Blues, so I thought it would be easier to eat at the same place. Park once, and spend the whole evening there. Food was good. We split the fried chicken. Cornbread was good, but it's very sweet. We didn't feel like dessert because the cornbread was so sweet. Service was great. It's a large, rather rough rustic dining room, with a stage at one end. That had someone playing loud music. Not too loud, barely. Tha waiter said that if it's too loud, tell him and they will tone it down.

    Overall, we had a nice evening, the groupon was an added bonus...only problem was when we arrived, our table was not ready, couldn't understand due to the fact that we made reservations. so the manager created us a table in the back outside of the restaurant, was very displeased with this gesture, asked to be moved, which he obliged along with a complimentary round of drinks for everyone. More than anything, we enjoyed the appetizers, the entree was so-so. However, no doubt we will visit HOB again.

    I was honestly not expecting much - having been to many of these "entertainment dining" establishments over the years. The House of Blues, however, had us planning on coming back - even if it's just for dinner. The VooDoo Shrimp was an incredible way to start the meal - and I highly recommend getting the side order of skillet cornbread - just to help with "sopping" up the extra voodoo sauce on those shrimp. Service was incredible - again, for a place like this, I didn't expect much. But our waiter along with all of the assistants kept our glasses full and made sure our entire meal and experience was fun and tasty!

    I was excited to be eating at the House of Blues being from out of town, but the food was too pricey for the quality that was presented. We did enjoy my daughters New York steak, which was very tasty. I would have rather eaten at whataburger. The service was poor, although the host was very kind.

    Although the atmosphere, service, and food were great, we really wanted to take friends who came in from out of town to dinner with live music playing. That was why we chose Crossroads, it showed a performer going on at 7 pm. We booked a table next to the stage for 6:45, and had a nice dinner, but the performer no showed. We ended up walking to a bar down the street for entertainment.

    Being the foodie I am, I would not choose Crossroads as I'm already familiar with their less than mediocre quality of food. We were rushed to get a bite to eat, though, before the concert we were seeing at House of Blues. From the host 'forgetting' that we were waiting to be seated and seating two of the same size parties as us who came in after us, to eating food that came out of the frozen food section at Sam's Warehouse, our $70 tab was insulting. The spinach artichoke dip is right of the box; just like we made in our poor college days! The dry thin strip of fish laying in the dry corn tortilla, also known as, fish tacos, had mounds of lettuce to give the appearance that the the sliver of fish was more than it was actually.

    Im not one to typically wrote bad reviews, but I'm gonna have to start. The strip steak I ordered was choked perfectly, however the potatoes I ordered were bland. The service was very slow and our waitress was preoccupied. I had called ahead to see if there was some kind of show that night and they said yes. Turns out it was a club night which I was not interested in. Overall, I wouldn't take a date there again.

    I have always been told to eat at the House of Blues for gooooood food. So I took up that opportunity when I went to the American Dream Tour in Dallas. There was a miscommunication in my reservation, but the manager was very helpful and seated us instantly! Our waiter was extremely nice and was always there when we needed a refill or anything extra. The food was very refreshing after being out in the hot sun all day and not too heavy to eat before rocking out at the concert. I recommend the burger bites, blueberry tea, and the ice cream of the day. I will DEFINITELY be coming back!

    We arrived prior to our reservation time to be told that a table would have to be cleared. After waiting several parties arrived and without any wait were seated immediately. The hostess clearly knew that she had overlooked us but by that time the better available tables had already been given to parties without reservations. There was also a lengthy delay in getting drinks from the bar all of which led to a discussion with the manager which led to the comping of a round of drinks. No attempt or offer was made to comp the entire meal. One would like to think that making reservations on Open Table would provide us with some preferential treatment in regard to length of wait and selection of seating but in this case it did not.

    Poor experience, problem with reservation & seating, poor service, had to wave down waiter on several occaisions to request items, food took forever to come out but the worst was the steak ordered by one member of our party was cooked wrong not once but twice, how you can confuse rare with well done is beyond me. Send the first one back and the next one was medium at best, no pink center at all. We had to make show so unable to send it back again. Will not be back. This was my first time to try prior to an event and was not impressed

    Bar and wait staff were very friendly, vibrant young people. Service was excellent! Voodoo shrimp appetizer was incredible, as was the lobster Mac and cheese and the fried chicken. The French dip sandwich was subpar....unusually sweet with soggy bread. But, overall, a nice dining experience prior to the Kenny Wayne Shepherd show.

    A wonderful location for a good pre-concert meal. Our server was very attentive and most helpful throughout our dining experience. The live music provided was a delightful backdrop. The mixed drink menu was a pleasant surprise. For our meal, we selected sandwiches, which were tasty but unfortunately, a little messy. Also, dessert options were somewhat limited.

    Pros - fun atmosphere, quick seating, great menu, convenient for concert attendees at HOB Dallas Cons - slow (possibly understaffed) service, incorrect order We were seated quickly, drink orders placed quickly, then service really slowed down. I think our waiter was servicing tables all over the restaurant, no organized "sections". Ordered food about 7:15, order came out incorrectly at 8:05. There was not enough time to reorder before our concert, but the burgers they served us were delicious, so we were not that disappointed. Even with the slow service and wrong food, I'll still give 4 stars and will be back. We've eaten there before and everything was impeccable.

    Fantastic service, food, and atmosphere. Our server was attentive, but not overbearing. Our drinks and food arrived in a very timely manner and all tasted amazing. We had the quesadilla app, the adobo pork chop over picadillo, the lobster mac and cheese for dinner, and the bourbon bread pudding for dessert. WE loved every last bite. You MUST try the bread pudding. It is fairly pricey in our books, but well worth it for the fun atmosphere. The bands were great - loud - but great! We had an absolute blast here - we will be back!

  • American affair
    ErikDallas
    Dined on 7/12/2014
    This American affair was a glorified music/theme park dinner with low quality service. Food was flung at the table with the entrees arriving before we had time to take a bite of our appetizers. Although the wait staff were very friendly and willing to chat they were not in any sense professional waiters. The food was fancy American affair, but was fancy only in the sense that putting lobster in the macaroni is fancy, but when it is done with otherwise undistinguished craft macaroni it is more a faux fancy than fine cuisine. The grilled shrimp appetizer and shrimp salad were probably the best dishes. Not clear what style of ribs was trying to be imitated with heavy application of grocery store BBQ sauce to the generous rack of ribs.

    Honestly, we had low expectations because of some nasty comments on another site - we couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised!!!! The food was VERY good...the service was exceptional - Allen was sooo attentive. We had to change tables because one of the people in our party was having back trouble and needed the booth. Even though the booths were on the other side of the room and out of his station area, Allen never missed a beat - very attentive, very helpful and made the evening enjoyable! And the band was awesome!!!

    We chose this restaurant because we were attending a concert at House of Blues. We were also pleased that we were able to make online reservations; however, I tried to call the restaurant to change the reservation as we were running a few minutes late, and was unable to reach a live person, only an answering machine. We did arrive 5 minutes past our reservation time and were seated immediately, so that was good. Our waiter was nice, but the service was so SLOW that we were late for the start of the concert! We arrived at 6:35 and the concert started at 8:15! And then he asked one of our party for a tip! Food was just ok, and both food and drinks WAY overpriced! Not recommended!
