Diner Reviews
  • "We ate at Crossroads on 10-14 prior to the Eagles concert at Toyota Center. We have made a tradition of this since HOB is convenient to Toyota Center. Highly recommend making a reservation before events at Toyota Center. Food was excellent as usual."

  • "The H.O.B. Houston Crossroads has a specific Houston flavor that makes it a Houston Gem. The Friday evening bands at the crossroads gives it that unique blend of live music and fine dining that is a treasure. Expect me again."

  • "Fun drink combinations, nice happy hour specials and great ribs."

  • "We order food and it took about 55 minutes to get our food and other people got there they got there food faster then us. No one even let us know that they were behind."

  • "Went for dinner Friday before seeing a show upstairs, we had a great server, enjoyed the food and the band they had in the restaurant. We will definitely be heading back soon!"

  • "I live 1 1/2 hours away. Any excuse to come to Houston's HOB is always a good one. I love dining here before a concert (I'm a concert junkie). On this particular visit, the wait staff was verrrryyyy slow. Despite me noting to the Hostess (who called to confirm my dinner reservations earlier that day) that I was attending the concert at HOB - she took her time. HOB wasn't especially busy, as this was a Sunday evening. We had to ask for drinks, and our check. Even though I had this experience, I will come back. I love the atmosphere too much to let one mediocre waitress spoil my dining experience. I tipped her appropriately even thought she wasn't very attentive to our table."

  • "Our waiter was beyond awesome. We had such a great time. The food was the best ever!"
    Dined on 9/17/2014
  • "for me it was ideal because it is the House of Blues, so makes it fun or 'more fun' than just attending a concert."

  • "This is my third time to eat at Crossroads either before or after a scheduled concert, and the first time I made reservations. I would definitely recommend the reservation process. While the food sounds fit for foodies, the flavors and quality often fall short for the price - except for the Jalapeño Maple Corn Bread which is delicious and unique to Crossroads . That being said, for me and my friends, it is part of the overall concert experience and we would never choose to eat anywhere else before a show."

  • "My husband and I had a really fun date night at House of Blues. We got concert tickets and decided to book dinner there before the show. The spinach artichoke dip was good and both of us "made" our own burger - they were really good! The highlight of the meal for my husband were the pickled cucumbers that came with his burger (not your traditional burger pickles). They reminded him of the ones his mom makes. About halfway through dinner, a great 3-piece blues band began to play and really livened things up. After dinner, we headed up to the concert and had an amazing time! We loved it."

  • "Love coming here. The food is great,along with the service. From the waitstaff to management they treat you well and make you feel welcomed. We've gone with family as well as just the two of us and it's been enjoyable each time. We've also seen the same Blues Band each time and enjoy their set on Sun nights. It's a great place to go. Highly recommend the cornbread and bread pudding. Both are ridiculously good!"
    Dined on 8/31/2014
  • "We really enjoyed the band and even didn't mind that they were so loud we couldn't talk. Food was good. The only complaint we have is it took half an hour to get 3 drinks from the bar because the bar was "so backed up". In a place like this where many people are eating before catching a show at HOB, they should move a little more quickly. Other than the ridiculously slow bar service, we enjoyed dining there. We will give it another chance. Maybe it was an "off" night."
    Dined on 8/29/2014
  • "It's convenient to the HOB theater, so I would definitely go back. Nice varied drink menu for cocktails. But I would enjoy a few more craft beer choices (American IPAs from the west coast would be awesome - Lagunitas IPA, Stone, Green Flash, just for starters). generous portions of regional favorites, but just okay to good."
    Dined on 8/29/2014
  • "Really fun dinner and great beer selection...followed by a fantastic performance by Mark Ballas and then Jesse McCartney. Can't wait to go back next month! This will definitely be a regular girls night out spot for us!!"

  • "I was not please with my choice meal. My date was please with his choice. The fish tacos was fishy, small and not tasty. Thw waitress was GREAt we was allow to view the Foundation Room and had another experience. I was a member in New Orleans with my organization and wanted to become a personal member. I had a glass of Chad Kendall Jackson and a Miller lite, total ($20) I didnt know about that until my guess and I got home. Bad expereince witht the Foundation Room but enjoyed the music downstairs. We wanted to know how and what cost to become a member because I enjoyed being a member for years. I wanted to show my boyfriend a great place to hang out so that he will get us a memebership. Parking was $15 I think that was crude."

  • "Was at your House of Blues_Houston location this part Saturday night (the 16th). My 53rd birthday. We planned on dinner at Crossroads, and afterwards seeing a local band that was playing there that night; Generation Landslide! The meal was perfect. A little pricey. Service was great. The whole experience was very good EXCEPT...the coffee. Either wasn't fresh, or you guys are competing with Star Bucks with who serves the strongest tasting coffee. I would recommend toning it down some (you just Community Coffee...I'm guessing). A more milder roast...but not too weak. BESIDES that...all is well. Would do the whole experience again. Dinner and Generation Landslide! was wonderful. A fun time was had by my wife and myself. We'll be back !!"

  • "Happy hour was great. I was also able to use the "skip the line" feature for an entrance into the concert. Managed to get front row!!!! Yay!!!"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "We decided to try Crossroads out because we were going to a concert at House of Blues. We were seated promptly and there were plenty of tables available in the 6pm time frame. Also, they have a stage and a 2 person band was playing - too loud to really have a conversation at the table. The best item we had was the Voodoo Shrimp - just order it! Large shrimp in a delicious sauce on top of cornbread - really large enough for 1 person for a meal or 2-3 people to share as an appetizer. Food came quickly, however drinks did not. You can get in and out in an hour or so to make a concert."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Great music, and even better food. Service was great as well. Note, if you are taking a date here just know that this is a live music establishment, so it will be hard to hear your date. If you're coming for great food and live music though...this is the place to be."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We ordered an appetizer then drinks. After about 10 minute, we ordered dinner. Still waiting for drinks. After another 10 minutes we got our appetizer and food at the same time. Drinks came 5 minutes later!"

  • "Visited the restaurant as it was close to the location I would be staying in Downtown. Found the menu to be a bit pricey, but not exorbitant. The hostess was charming and attentive; My dish was the Steak Salad with balsamic vinegarette and i found it to be suitable for the time of evening for which I was dining."

  • "cancelled reservation at Mia Bella because of an email announcing new craft beer little did I know a 12 ounce can would cost $8.50 not even draft !really?? I had a 16 ounce draft in Austin for $5 same beer. food is good but I will not be having beer there again"

  • "I expected this place to be like any other bar and grill. I made reservation the day we went and knew that was different. We walked and right away the staff was so attentive and looked you in the eye and made you feel welcome. The menu had American cuisine as well as unique items such as bacon wrapped meatloaf. The meal was delicious, the ambiance was great, and our waitress was so nice and very professional that I am bummed I dont remember her name. I would recommend this for a group of friends or a couples night out or anything in between. The meal was very reasonably priced for families as well. We will be going back for on our next visit to the House of blues. Keep up the good work!"

  • "Two of us went to dinner on a Friday night. I ordered my usual baby back ribs which I love and my friend ordered the macaroni and cheese lobster dish. My baby back ribs were very tough. In the past they would just slide off the bone. When the waitress asked how our order was I said, these ribs aren't like I had them before where they just slid off the bone. She asked me how long it had been since I had ordered them and I said about 6 months. She said they had changed the menu some and that the ribs were made differently now and that everyone loved them. Well I guarantee you I will never order them again. My friends meal was very pricey for the amount of lobster she got. Enjoyed the music but don't think I will eat there again."

  • "Server messed up our drink order. Although the dining room was fairly empty, our food took 40 mins to come out. Had to ask another server to grab our food when we saw it in the window because our server was m.i.a. PLUS, server swiped the wrong amount on our cards and didn't even tell us!"

  • "Excellent for preconcert dining_ must make reservations though. Food to avoid _ chicken wings. Tasted fake grilled, not fried as stated. House salad was excellent. Packed, but not because of the food. Don' t expect gourmet food, but a great preconcert atmosphere."

  • "Excellent food,service and atmosphere at Crossroads in Houston. I recommend showing up early and hanging out in the bar for a bit. Make a reservation...especially if there is a show in one of the venues ir you won't get a table! A hot spot in downtown Houston!"

  • "Ate dinner here before a concert at HOB. All the servers were extremely nice and helpful and went out of their way to make sure we were tended to. Great service, menu could use more variety but food tasted fine for a chain."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "The food was good, but not great. Prices were a little high on the food and quite high for the drinks. I guess that is so they can afford to bring in the bands. But, although the website says the band is going to be there at 6:00, they did not start until after 6:30. We did enjoy the music played by Ransom Bandits. I would go again to hear that band, but would not go just to eat the food."

  • "We ordered the Voodoo shrimp. The cornbread was practically cold. The sauce was like a salty gravy. Shrimp were cooked well. My friend ordered the lobster mac&cheese. There were literally six bits of lobster in the dish. We felt totally cheated! The steak was very tasty. The mashed potatoes were almost soupy. I guess they'd been over beaten. I don't think I'll return to this location. Finally, our waiter was not attentive. He was MIA until he delivered the check."

  • "rubber fish and soggy beans. Live band had limited talent and their microphones were turned up way too high. Plenty of better options for a pre-concert meal."
