Southern Comfort Food
Food was fabulous and service was stellar. Great for a quick bite before a concert and could be a hoot with the right group of friends. Parking is not fun, but easily overlooked by the great food! You must try the maple butter cornbread, it's melt-in-your-mouth good.

WOW, I never knew there was
WOW, I never knew there was such a gem within an hours drive of my residence. This was a FABULOUS date night. The food was good, the drinks were good. The band playing in the dining room was good. The ambiance was great. It is not a place to talk because the music is loud but that is what you are there for. The concert upstairs was awesome, a nice size but not too big.

Thanks for a great night!
My wife and I attended the Scott Weiland show, but not before eating at Crossroads. The service was excellent. Travis was very attentive and helpful in helping with our food choices. The food was very good and came out in a timely manner. And eating with live music playing was very enjoyable too. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a great night. Oh and by the way, thinking of applying for a job as a server or bartender. It just looks like a cool place to work as well. Thanks again!

I have been to HOB / Houston
I have been to HOB / Houston many times and have always been very pleased. I recently made reservations online as I usually do. Everything was great as usual with a few minor exceptions. My reservation was made for 6:15pm. We were seated right next to a loud group who stood beside their table and continually bumped into my guest and I. there were notably several vacant tables throughout the restaurant. I was also slightly disappointed with the wine selection. Was looking for a Shiraz but it was not available. Overall I was extremely satisfied with the food and service.

I went with a friend last
I went with a friend last Sat for dinner. Due to traffic/event going on downtown, I was late for my reservation. The restaurant was very accommodating. Our waiter, John, was very engaging, friendly and always smiling. We ordered the chicken wings, shrimp and grits and bread pudding. The food was good. We sat right in front of the big screen TV but it was not too loud. We were able to carry on conversation with no problem. The waiter came back to re-fill our drinks frequently. In addition, there was some confusion with my open table reservation. The manager, David, was very understanding and go out of his way to make sure that I got my points. He has a great attitude and evidently very experienced in handling customer concerns.

Good food. The band could have been a little bit quieter. It was hard to hear the server.

Good office lunch spot.
I brought a group of 10 for lunch on a Friday. We were greeted and seated promptly, served quickly and professionally and enjoyed the lunch. The salads and cornbread were very good. The waitress brought our check promptly and was very friendly. What more could you ask for? I'll be back. Good for work groups.

Our waitress Marilyn was outstanding. This is the best service I have ever received at a restaurant.

The atmosphere is really cool,
The atmosphere is really cool, much like any other House of Blues, with the folk art and entertainment. The food was good, but nothing to get excited about. If you are looking for a place to dine before a concert at House of Blues this is the perfect place.
4/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went to House of Blues restaurant because we had tickets to a concert upstairs. If you don't mind a loud restaurant the food was above average and the pricing was great. I've heard complaints that it is overpriced but not for the quality and the atmosphere. Food presentation was way above average - clearly done by an above average chef. Everything we had was really good. I would definitely recommend it to friends who like a loud vibrant atmosphere. The sound system for the live music was not great and the musicians were completely drowned out by the diners. But this was what I expected. Don't go for the music in the restaurant - go for the food. The concert venue upstairs was AWESOME! Didn't have to wait in line since we ate there.

I was very pleased with everything
I was very pleased with everything including the service, food and atmosphere. We were there celebrating a birthday so there were 7 of us at the table. The waitress took care of all of us and always was on top of things when glasses were low or felt we might need something. All in all it was a very enjoyable lunch and I am very appreciative.
5/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great place to go
We all loved our dinners and had a great time just being able to relax and talk. The waiter was great and attentive. Kind of glad we left before the band started to play because it gets a bit loud when you are trying to talk. I do not think there is a bad thing on the whole menu!

We always dine here before concerts at House of Blues. They never disappoint - great food and service. We will definitely be back.

Good gluten free salad
I have to eat gluten free (Celiac). There is no gluten free menu, but our waiter told me the gluten free options after conferring with the chef. I had a south-westerny steak salad (don't remember the name, sorry) and it was delicious and very filling. Loved the atmosphere, good service, good food, and they did NOT gluten me, so I'd love to go back.

New and Better
They have changed their menu recently and it is excellent. They went through a period where the menu items were not up to par. I must say that their food and their service has improved so much. Our latest group to eat there totalled about 30 people. The waiter was fantastic and was able to "keep up" with all of our attorneys.
6/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fun and delicious
If you love delicious food and music, you'll love this place. The portions are not gigantic, but perfect. The four of us all ordered different dishes, and they were all wonderful. Great funky decor. Fun place and live music.
6/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
I loved this place the scene enviorment was excellent. The menu was great but would love a gluten free menu. Overall great place.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
this was an excellent way to get downtown after work and dine before the show at the theater. service and food selection was excellent contrary to quick search reviews found on the internet. I am over fifty so not my first rodeo and this did not disappoint. I will return. Watch out for the heat of the Jamaican wings!

We were planning on going to a concert at the music hall at this location, and decided to grab a bite to eat & drinks before the show so we made an Open Table reservation. Well, travel plans got delayed, and we ended up a bit late, so I called & staff was happy to accommodate us a bit later. This location is a larger one than the HOB restaurants in Orlando & New Orleans that I've also visited. Perhaps the same number of tables, but the main room was spacious and open, which gave the place a different vibe. Food quality was consistent with other HOB, and we felt like the wait staff at this location was the best of all the ones we have visited. Very friendly and efficient! Thanks for a great pre-show experience.

Loved the food
Love House of Blues. The food was amazing per usual. We weren't happy with our server but when got help from others a few times they were very kind. We will be back. Also had a great time at the concert afterwards.

We went As a small group and our only complaint was the noise level the band was so loud wee had to point on the menu to show our waitresses what we wanted to eat, but the band was good just loud very loud after we finished eating stayed n listened to the band some more

Great place for dinner
We enjoy House of Blues and have never had a bad meal. I believe everything on the menu is good.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Most enjoyable, the Shrimp and Grits were outstanding, service very good.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife took me here for my birthday, and it did not disappoint. We had the Voodoo Shrimp for an appetizer- it was unreal. Blackened shrimp in a bourbon butter sauce over southern cornbread. It was delicious. Our entrees (meatloaf and French dip) were equally good, and the banana white chocolate bread pudding was incredible. I had hurricanes, and she drank a pain killer- they were great as well. Our service was top notch, and we sat in front of the stage and listened to a great blues singer/guitar player. It was wonderful, unique experience.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I wanted to hear a band that was playing at Crossroads, and was not expecting the food to be anything to write home about, thinking of it more as a club venue than a restaurant. I was happy to have been proved wrong. The food was anything but "fried bar food," and the service was very good considering the noise level and the number of people up moving around. I look forward to my next evening there.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was outstanding
Everything was outstanding and was the perfect place to celebrate my birthday and follow it up with a concert at the same place. Truly enjoyed by all 10 of the people with me.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have to admit I wasn't expecting much with a concert venue. We tried getting In at andaluccia. i was pleasantly surprised. I had a burger hubby had the fish tacos and they were really good. I would definitely go eat there again. Service was great too! Check in on yelp for 15% off too

Per concert hot spot
Food was good and a decent selection of beer. Wait staff was friendly and attentive but my only complaint was that he tried to rush us out before we wanted to go.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
great service and food as usual
Restaurant was packed before The Cult show, but food and service were excellent as usual. Bread pudding was yummy.

Best waitress ever!

The restaurant had great variety on the menu. I wanted to try everything on this menu but settled for the fried buttermilk chicken. It was great!
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
great birthday dinner
I took my BF there for a nice birthday dinner, we had never been but the food was amazing the service was great, in small talk we told our waitress it was his birthday and at the end of the meal she brought is a yummy rasberry and chocolate cheesecake it was the best!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
ADDS to the experience!
Makes any concert even better. And the appetizers were delicious. And check out the gift shoppe. We were given a 15% off coupon and we bought two killer coffee carriers that work excellent. THEN...the lady gave us a fast pass to get into the concert.

Once a year my friends and I attend the Int'l Houston Quilting Festival. The House of Blues has been a ritual for Friday nights each year. We were there the first year Blues opened and will be there as long as there is a quilt festival in Houston.
PS We had the same server the last two years and he was amazing, fun, quick and responsive.

Houston House of Blues
I went to celebrate my birthday. There was no special starring act. No celebrity guest. Just an awesome blues band that plays all over Houston. There is even a Blues Society. I had the best Quesadilla I've ever had in my life even though I had to scape the tortilla. I'm paleo. I've had better strip steaks but it wasn't bad. Just what I would consider decent. They brought me up to dance and asked me to.sing. (I can hold a note or two. But I'm no Mariah or Whitney, or even Beyonce). I had a blast. The waiter and service was perfect. From the moment we walked in. Very very nice. A bit dark inside but I am still making plans to go back.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had great food/entertainment/coc
We had great food/entertainment/cocktails/service on the Friday Night Blues Night at the Crossroads restaurant... even got up for a dance or two with other diners! I felt so comfortable there that I went back at the weekend myself for something to eat.
