    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.

    I had a party of 8 to satisfy which can be pretty hard sometimes but with a great menu selection it was pretty easy to do this. Not only was the food absolutely amazing they carried microbrews from locals in the area which was a very pleasant surprise to find inside disney. Overall a great experience with very friendly and accommodating staff can't wait to go back!!!

    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.

    We go to house of blues in vacation every year and the food has been amazing. But now seeing the new owner in Orlando changed the way the food is made as Gordon Ramsey states, It looks and tastes like a dogs dinner. Very poor quality in the food. Also even the signature dishes like the voodoo shrimp. It was way to spicy unable to eat also it was cold and gritty to the taste shame on the house of blues for changing the good quality of food you once had. I will never go back its a shame, but I work to hard for my money to waste it a something I would not feed to my dog.

    I have a special place in my heart for House of Blues it is a place were the romantic magic first took place about 14 years ago with the person who is now my wife in West Hollywood California. I specifically remembered the Voodoo Shrimp dish and a Smoked Planked Salmon dish that knocked our socks off back then. So we were really looking forward to recapture those memories here at the Blues in Orlando. We ordered the Voodoo Shrimp and it was entirely different and much to sweet on the night we were there, however the Juicy Juice Burger was delicious. This is our second visit to the House of Blues in Orlando and it seems to me the food is just not quite Dynamite as it used to be. Not sure if we would go there for anything more than drink.

    We recently stayed in Orlando for the weekend. The first night we went here and the food was delicious! Service was good and place all out 5 stars, we said we would go again!...Well we went back down town Disney the 2nd night, and after reviewing some of the other dinner menus and prices, we opted to go back for a 2nd night in a row! It was just as fabulous as the night before! We had a one year old with us and they set us in back room which was perfect! We got the Jalapeno Corn bread both nights! IT IS SOOO GOOD! Can't wait to go back to this place next year!

    I was hoping that there would be a musician or two strumming some Blues while we ate. Disappointed that the music at 5:00pm was old rock favorites and not actually Blues. Same goes for the later show in the theater. An 80's Rock band at the House of Blues? I don't get it.

    Took someone here for our first date. We ordered the spinach dip which didn't have any flavor at all really. We ordered Heinekens and we were dissapointed because the beer wasn't even cold. At 7 pm the beer should be ready to go. We ended up going to Bongos instead after the appetizer. We decided that we will not be returning to the House of Blues.

    Food was OK and pricey. Not really hot especially the fries. People were nice and informative especially the greeter @ front door. We had walked all the way from the bus drop-off and she let us know about the boat to take back to Marketplace. Might want to consider this in your advertising especially for people staying @Disney hotels and may be attending Cirque Sole. We had a 4PM reservation because we had tickets for the show @ 6PM and didn't arrive until 4:30 because of the "LONG WALK" They did seat us right away and we made the show with plenty of time to spare Again, $58 incld. tip for 1 burger,1 fish sandwich and 1 childs mac n cheese & 1 margarita(Happy hour price $3.85) was just a little over the top.

    we have dined there in the past ,food is usually ok however on this occasion my wife ordered a dish that ended up so spicey she couldn't eat it,the menu didn't specify this and our waiter was so unconcerned about it that he didn't offer another dish or a refund. We were very disappointed in the slow service and lack of concern from the staff in general that we won't be returning.

    Being a huge Food Network fan, I expected great things from an Aaron Sanchez's restaurant. I ordered the Shrimp & Grits and my husband chose the Spicy Chicken Pasta. Although mine was super spicy, it really liked in flavor, the shrimp were overcooked and the grit cake was just bad. And there was nothing spicy about the pasta. I know the House of Blues is a "tourist" spot, but the food game is definitely lacking. The service was awesome though!! Unless you just want to drink and have a good time, don't bother.

    We had booked a table over a week in advance for 6pm as we were attending a concet after dinner. Having arrived promptly it was disappointing to then have to wait for over 20 minutes for a table. When we eventually went in to the restaurant there were lots of empty tables so we couldn't understand why we could not have been taken at the time we had booked. Service was ok but once we ordered our meals the food was brought to the table so quickly it was obvious that the meals were simply sitting played up in the kitchen waiting to go to whoever ordered next rather than being freshly prepared. The standard of the meals, which was distinctly average, reflected this "production line" approach. Overall very average!

    Chose HOB because we were going to La Nouba right next door. Our 4:00 reservations gave us plenty of time for the 6:00 show. Didn't have very high expectations because this is a chain in a touristy location. The menu has a good variety and the food was pretty good, nice French Dip sandwich. Our server was a bit disinterested.

    Appetizers were very good, but everything went downhill from there. My wife and I ordered ribs, the toughest we ever had, difficult even to cut with a steak knife. My son ordered meatloaf, which wasn't very good. After the band started, the drunks hit the dance floor/serving area. My daughter was struck in the head by one of the drunks. The waitstaff were indifferent and occupied with maneuvering around the drunks. Management was apparently absent. Definitely a poor experience for our family.

    Booked a table for 7pm on opentable for my group and when we turned up we were advised there was a 20 min wait. This turned into a 40 minute wait for a table, but only after enquiring at 30 mins. Not sure of the value of booking on line if your reservation means turn up and wait for an available cover. The food was average and staff were observed not following posted hygiene notices.

    We visited 9 years ago on vacation & loved it. We were much anticipating another visit during this vacation. Made online reservations for Friday evening. Service was friendly & upbeat despite our server having several large parties & the 4 of us. The food was a great portion for the price & excellently prepared. Decor is fun with folk art theme. The burgers & barbecue are superb with unique offerings or design your own.

    As locals, we are usually hesitant to eat at a "theme" restaurant in one of our tourist areas. Our experience has generally been that the food is fairly pedestrian and the prices escalated. We were attending a concert at the House of Blues venue next door, however, and decided to go ahead and eat at Crossroads first. Other than a less than ideal reservation system (all a reservation gets you is priority seating after you stand in a long line to let them know that you are there for your reservation) we found the food to be very good and the service excellent. The price was certainly not out-of-line for the quality and service. We will go back again.

    Even though our reservation was for 8:00, we arrived about an hour earlier and were seated after a few minutes wait. That was nice. When we made the reservation on-line, the first available time for our group (5) was 8:00 so I was surprised there were empty tables when we were seated.
