    My reservation was for 7:30pm. I was seated immediately. The waitress took my drink order. My drink arrived almost an hour later. The waitress took my food over around 8:20pm. OK. My food arrived around 9pm. The steak was a little salted. The waitress fail to inform me that the kitchen will be substitute the mash potatoes with Mac and cheese. The vegetables I was serviced...horrible. The whole experience was terrible. I wasn't the only table that had this issues. No sense of urgency. None. Yes I do understand it was a Sunday night. I have dine in other restauranst with more volume and complex menu and they did a phenomenal job

    I took my teenage daughters AND parents to House of Blues on our vacation to New Orleans. We all found something appealing to order and our food was delicious. Four of us had the Juicy Lucy burger, and we all agreed it was one of our top 5 burgers -- and we consider ourselves to be somewhat burger connoisseurs. :). We went at 5:00 so there was no wait. The service was good, too.

    We ate here as we had a concert to attend at the House of Blues, so it was very convenient. Our server, Sydney, was very attentive, helpful, and efficient. This is not a fancy restaurant, but they have great food and a great atmosphere. We had the voodoo shrimp appetizer, which was large grilled shrimp with a delicious sauce over cornbread, and a juicy lucy burger which had chipotle mayo and fried jalapenos on it. The beef was cooked just right at medium. I had a great glass of wine, however, their wine list is limited. The beer list was short, too. But, my husband asked if there was any beer not listed on the menu, and thankfully, they did have one of his favorite new local beers available.

    My wife and I ate at Crossroads at House of Blues last evening. I have not been to the House of Blues in over 15 years. It looks like it did when I last visited. The waiter was extremely inexperienced regarding drinks. We started off with an ordered the spinach and artichoke dip. It was awful. It looked like they took a box of frozen spinach, put it in a small cast iron skillet, placed a slice of cheese (unknown), and broiled it. It was dry and lacked a discernible flavor. We opted to end our meal and head to the TOTO concert. Unfortunately, the House of Blues remains one of the worst concert venues in New Orleans. Unless you are on the floor or at the edge of the balcony upstairs you cannot see the band.

    This was not what I expected. The place is pretty laid back but the prices certainly are not. The night we went there was a free comedy night and 5 out of the 6 comedians were pretty bad. One of them was so bad my husband and I actually fell asleep listening to them. At first our waiter was great and attentive but as soon as it got a little busy she never came by our table again which actually made her lose out because we had planned on ordering at least 2 more drinks and a dessert. She came back to our table at the end of the show and by then we were just so ready to leave we paid for the food and called it a night. The food itself was nice. I don't remember right now what I had but I remember my sweet potato fries were awesome!

    NO bread other than a pan of corn bread? I ordered a salad and pasta and the waiter told me there was NO bread available. But if you order a Caesar salad you get a slice of thick toast. But they couldn't give me a slice because they are for the Caesar salads only. WHAT????? Then we went into the concert area and ordered a dirty martini... not can't do that, we have no olives or olive juice. WHAT?????? Went to another bar location and asked again. This time the bartender told me she would have to order it from the kitchen. The word was that people were eating the olives so they took them away. Then keep them under the counter. Management need to consider they are serving their guests, and have standard items that restaurants/bars provide.

    I am sorry to say my visit to HOB for my birthday was a great disappointment. I thought because of it's reputation and the fact I was in a city known for it's great cuisine it would be a great experience. Unfortunately all of our food came out cold. Then when everything was made over, the food was still underwhelming. Many of the meals had very little season or flavor. Unfortunately I would have to say it was my least favorite meal during my entire vacation. The one good thing I can say is the manager Mary was very pleasant and accommodating to us, although our waiter was not the best. I wouldn't come back here for food but I would give the bar, outdoor concerts, and shows another chance.

    We got there at 630 expecting to be done in about 45 minutes. I booked this because we were going to a concert there with the doors opening at 7. We werent done until after 8. The waitress forgot our drinks, and our salads were mediocre. Overall we wouldnt eat there again because the food was over priced, and because it caused us to miss part of the show.

    I always find my way to a House of Blues when I am in an area where there is one available. I have been to this one before, and for some reason, the food and service did not compare to what is the norm at other House of Blues throughout the US. I was thoroughly disappointed and so were the two people with me which was their first time coming to a Crossroads restaurant at a House of Blues.

    I'm a fan of Aaron Sanchez and loved the house of blues in Las Vegas so I had to try his New Orleans restaurant. It wasn't as good, but it was still good. Our waitress, Mamma D, was exceptional, engaging, and her food recommendation was spot on. The place felt a little dusty and the blues brothers statues outside were in need a repair. However, the food was good and I would come back to try other menu items.

    The food was not great but not bad and I was not very happy with how long it took our food to come out. It took at least 45 minutes for the food to come out and when it did my food was not hot at all. My Po Boy was edible buts fries were cold and had to be sent back. Overall I was not pleased but to say I have been to The House of Blues is worth it.

    I ordered the shrimp poboy & was told they did not have any. So I ordered the flat bread that was burnt to a crisp on the bottom. My grandaughter had what was suppose to be a grilled cheese but it was not grilled & tasted horrible & was sent back. All of the fries were cold. My daughter-in-law had a very dry hamburger & could only eat part of it. My son enjoyed the ribs but had to send a drink back that was watered down. Our waitress was very attentive. We could see someone standing in the doorway of the ktchen blowing his nose. The only thing I liked were my drinks.

    We went here for lunch on a Tuesday. The place was dead, which was fine by me because we had attentive service and our waiter was super nice, but we didn't get the full "House of Blues" experience. I had the pulled pork sliders with a salad. The salad was good, but the pork was just okay. I've had a lot better, but it wasn't inedible. My husband had the fish tacos. They have a market fish of the day, so each day could be different. The fish that day was swordfish and he seemed to enjoy it very much. If you're looking for excellent food, you can find a lot better places in NOLA, but if you want an unique experience, this could be the place.

    While a "chain", the food was really good... the drinks were outstanding. We enjoyed all of our food (I LOVED the Juicy Lucy burger!) and my Jalapeno Tequila based drink was delicious! It doesn't hurt that this works great if you're going to enjoy some music there later. Service was a bit lack-luster, but the place was fairly empty and maybe they were just feeling a bit underwhelmed.

    I took my mom and friend here on mother's day. We arrived with a Restaurant.com gift certificate to which the hostest shut us down saying the voucher couldn't be used on holidays. The vocher didn't say that so we were allowed to use it. Julian, our server, was great!! He was soo attentative and very personable. He made great recomendations for the Voodoo shrimp as an app and the Shrimp and Grits as an entree. Both lived up to my expectations. We also had the Burbon Bread Pudding which was a great ending. Overall I was satisfied from the great service and food. At the end I paid with my credit card which says "Please see ID". No one ever asks but Julian did! Bounus points! Little things like that really make a difference.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 4/13/2014
    The "new" menu does not match with the menu posted at Open Table and on the HoB web site and the item I intended to order was not available on the "new" menu. Signature Cornbread - Stale "crispy" chicken wings - gooey - definitely not fried. Sandwiches - not at all special I'm not sure what the distraction was, because the place was not very busy when we arrived but, for all the attention the "manager" gave when seating us, the server was slow in getting to us and nearly invisible except for taking an delivering our order. It didn't help that had no place-setting for several minutes after my meal was delivered. It seemed like the folks in the back room were enjoying the band - Don't go for the food

    The food had some highlights including the gumbo and pasta bolognese which were both very good. I was very disapointed in my salad which was a limited portion of very wet spinach leaves that were over dressed and soggy. The shrimp po boy ok and the fried chicken was well cooked (moist on the inside and crispy outside) but lacked any flavor. Too bland for my taste. Price was just OK. The server was very friendly and generally responsive, except when my daughter knocked over my drink and our server did not offer to help us clean up. She did bring us more napkins but only a small amount of paper napkins so we had to use our "starched" table napkins. I thought that at least an "offer' to help with a wet rag would have been appropriate.
