    My wife and I reserved a table at the Crossroads the night we were going to see a concert at the House of Blues. It was recommended because we would get early entry. The place is really cool. Good music, and interesting ambiance. Our server was great. He was patient, knowledgeable, and even though we were a bit late, still got us in for early entry. The menu at Crossroads was VERY limited. I ordered a French Dip Sandwich, and my wife ordered a sun-dried tomato flat bread. The roast beef was very dry and bland. The dip seemed like basic out-of-the container beef broth with no seasoning. This would have been fine if it wasn't so expensive! I think it was close to $16 for a small sandwich. We likely wouldn't go back unless we decided to go to another concert there.

    My only complaint is that when we got to crossroads to eat , even with reservation they put us on list with all other customers coming in. After 3 other couples went back before us we mentioned what's the point of a reservation if we are put on list with in coming customers? At that point we were take. Back by the manager for seating. Otherwise, awesome experience.

    I felt like the menu was lacking variety. It was the typical DENNY'S choices but when the food came out it was obviously a higher quality. I also really enjoyed the ambiance of the place. The art was cool. I'd Def go there again.

    Going to a concert at the House of Blues? Grabbing dinner at Crossroads gets you in the pass-the-line line, without paying $20/ticket. Yes, you're still waiting (in a line) but you get in before the other line, which is a heck of a lot of people. We didn't know about the program, decided to grab dinner there and our server told us about it. Very cool. Will certainly do it again. Our food was fast. Sweet potato fries were a little cold but overall the dinner was good.

    We only went for lunch, so it was burgers and beer. This is probably our 10th visit to the House of Blues for a meal. Our waitress was very good. The burgers were generous and came with fries. The décor includes relief portraits of blues legends and black folk art. Music is always being played, which is just fine with us. The House of Blues is also a concert venue. Check their website for performances and tickets. Also, in the evenings, in their courtyard, you can enjoy some live local bands for free. You can purchase drinks at the outdoor bar and light fare (such as hot dogs) at the food kiosk in the patio.

    We went here to check out Downtown Disney renovation progress, and use a gift certificate I had. We really enjoyed the food, which I would say is comfort food. We shared the voodoo shrimp and cornbread appetizer. Hubby had a burger which was delish, although very hard to eat as a normal burger. The brioche bun is just too soft if you add any sauces! French dip was very good and so was meatloaf. Caesar said way too much dressing! Order it on the side. Overall good food, lively atmosphere. Not cheap, but not overpriced for Disney. Make reservations on open table. Usually little or no availability in Disney site.

    Even on Thursday night there was a line out the door. We were seated within 15 minutes of our reservation & were a little late so very reasonable. The service Was excellent--generous portions of tasty piping hot food. Priced a bit high for the menu $18 fried chicken) but would definitely go back if in the area. Dying to try gospel brunch!

    We have been trying to get reservations in Downtown Disney for several of our trips to Disney World. Thanks to MEI Travel & our agent, she was able to acquire the reservation for us. It was amazing! The voodoo shrimp was so good (wish I had the recipe for that one!). We both had the lobster mac & cheese & were not disappointed. Our server was very attentive, explaining different items & making sure we were aware of the spiciness of some of the choices. We happen to like spicy food. He also checked back with us often, checking to see if we needed anything. I would give this more than a 10 & hopefully we can go back again. Thank you for the great food & service.

    The food at House of Blues is fantastic and the ambiance is outstanding. Music and art memorabilia everywhere! No boredom here. We have not been during any live music so noise level was quite comfortable for conversation. This was our second visit and will be back. The Island Turkey Burger is a favourite!

    After having been to HOB for Gospel Brunch in the past, we decided to meet some vacationing friends there for dinner because we knew it would be SO GOOD! And we were right! Started with Spinach & Artichoke dip....the crackers they serve it with were original and fresh. Then we had Seafood Bisque - looser than I am used to but it didn't matter. They got the flavor spot on! Then we moved on to Shrimp & Grits which were a bit too spicy for me and Lobster Mac & Cheese which was perfection in an iron skillet! Dessert was just as good (Key Lime Pie, Triple Chocolate Cheesecake and Bourbon Bread Pudding). Portion sizes were good for the price, service was great and we were in and out in about 1.5 hours.

    I was looking for a place to take a lady friend that was fun, lively, clean, safe, and a good value. Crossroads was all of the above and more. The reservation was handled efficiently, we were seated immediately upon arrival. After dinner we went outside and had another drink and were entertained by a small two piece band and a full moon. parking was a small problem. Disney is building a new parking structure on the west side.

    It had been a long time since I had visited Crossroads at House of Blues. My husband and I used to enjoy sitting at the bar having drinks and eating Voodoo Shrimp, which in my opinion is the best that restaurant has to offer. We had the pork chops with a black-eyed pea/butternut squash medley which was very good. We also shared the garlic/rosemary mashed potatoes, which were very creamy, but a little bland. I don't know what bacon wrapped meatloaf was doing on the menu. I would have expected that at a Cracker Barrel. The service was good, the drinks were good and the entertainment, Ruth King was excellent.

    The meatloaf at House of Blues is outstanding. Members of my party also had sliders as an entree, which is a good thing, because for eaters with light appetites, two of those is plenty though there is an option on the menu for four. One of our party spent a lot of time in Mississippi & loved the jambalaya. Plenty of choices on the menu for all in a party, no matter what you're in the mood for. The key lime pie was also excellent. Overall, great food & great service!

    Had dinner at Crossroads at House of Blues on Saturday for the first time and it was phenomenal. Went to dinner before seeing concert at House of Blues and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. The manager Ruthie was an absolute delight. Our server, Summer was perfect Flatbread appetizer that was absolutely delicious, missed greens salad with a perfect balsamic vinaigrette to start. I had the lobster mac & cheese which was delicious, creamy and loaded with chunks of lobster. My husband had the NY Strip which was grilled to perfection and very tender. I cannot wait to go back. I highly recommend this restaurant whether you are going to see a show or just happen to be in the Downtown Disney area. Reservations suggested.

    Not what I expected at all. The menu online is not representative of the menu at the restaurant. If you are health conscientious there's not a lot to choose from. I ordered the salmon dry grilled- it wasn't, and salad without any dressing- it had it. Drinks were mediocre at best.
