I recently dined at Crossroads
I recently dined at Crossroads at the House of Blues before a concert. I have dined here before, years ago, and I must say that there has been a GREAT change from my first experience. I mean this in the most positive manner. From the moment you are greeted by the host to the end of your meal you receive EXCEPTIONAL customer service. The staff is incredibly friendly and attentive. They constantly picked up remnants of trash from our table (sugar packets, straw wrappers, etc) leaving it spotless. The food was absolutely delicious! Every single item we had was perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned, perfectly UNIQUE. I highly recommend Crossroads and I can't wait to go back!

Great Food. Little Noisy.
Dinner was great and the food and service were excellent. We went on open mic night which was a ton of fun but due to the small venue it was quite loud. Excellent place to go but I wish it was a bit smaller.

Perfect Pre-Concert Hangout
Variety of food on the menu, and everything was extremely tasty! The waitress was helpful and very knowledgeable. The only downside was the live band that was performing kept us from much conversation. Will definitely make Crossroads at House of Blues our pre-concert ritual from now on!

We ate at Crossroads because
We ate at Crossroads because we were attending the Ben Rector Concert later. If you spend $20 each, you don't have to wait in the line outside and you get in ahead of the outside line. The food was good but not having to wait in the cold was even better. I'll eat in the restaurant every time I go to a concert. Great service-there were 10 of us. Great food-no one complained and everything was eaten or put in a to-go box. Had a live musician singing on the stage while we were eating, adding fun to an already fun night.

We had an amazing time! It was my father and I's first time going to the House of Blues. our waitress (her name started with a T) was AWESOME! She was extremely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the concert with Deadeye as well. Would definatley recommend the place and will come back if we are ever in Dallas again.

The bar and the valet service
The bar and the valet service the night of a concert is WAY too slow.

We will be back!
Made reservation to enjoy the food and the ability to 'pass the line' for Big Head Todd and the Monsters show (AWESOME)
Service was fantastic, Food - Pulled pork sandwich and the shrimp and grits were both great.
There's a lot going on in the building, place your food order, grab your beverage and go walk around and check it out - your server will make sure your table will be there when you get back.

Great food and live music
Great food and live music make it a fun night out.

This is a great deal when
This is a great deal when you are attending a concert at HoB - spend $25 & get into the concert venue first! I ordered the street tacos - they were REALLY good but only came with 3 small tacos. A side of beans would have been perfect. I was still hungry so I helped others polish off their bacon wrapped meatloaf that was out of this world! It is always a GREAT time when we get to go to HoB!

Very enjoyable experience...
I was having dinner alone that night waiting for a concert to begin. My waiter took VERY good care of me (thank you Marcus!) and kept the experience very enjoyable. The food was delicious, margaritas perfect, and ambiance uplifting. I will definitely return to Crossroads and will recommend it to friends.

My daughter and I ate there before a show, we really enjoyed it. Good service, great food.

I took my boyfriend here for a surprise little date night. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the food and what we may like. He recommended the Voodoo Shrimp as an appetizer which we loved. We did have a problem with our entrees. Our food came out at the same time but my boyfriend’s rigatoni was missing the chicken. I finished my whole meal before he got his chicken which I thought was unacceptable. We ordered a drink it took so long to get it we had to get it in a plastic cup so we can make it to the concert that was being held at the House of Blues. Although we had a few problems the food was really good and the wait staff was very nice.

As soon as my grand children and I walked in we were graciously greeted and seated.
Food order was taken right away. The corn bread was out of this world, so was the macaroni and cheese. The service was busy. The entertainment was spectacular. You should get her again. I will come again; marisela, I think. Everything good

Our reason for the trip to the HOB in Dallas was for a concert. I purchased the meal pass along with our show tickets and couldn't of been happier with the dining experience. The staff made sure we were taken care of at all times and were very friendly. We will definitely be returning for the amazing food and service!
5/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service was awesome, from the host who seated us to our waitress who was a big help, to all the other staff that helped us. I will definitely go there again.

Don't go for the food...
Don't go if you are hungry.... samples from around our table.... burger bun crumbly like stale... meat appeared to have been cooked ahead and sat in a pan... bottom warm... top cool.... lobster mac which I ordered... like a bad tuna casserole, that was just warm... watery and fishy smell

Went to see Acoustic Blues 5/25
We saw the band scheduled to play was billed as Acoustic Blues. We loved the band, and the food was good. The server was inattentive. We had the quesadillas and they were awesome. We had the Build Your Own Burger and it was delicious. The music is loud, but since that is why we chose to go, it was acceptable!
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good eclectic menu
There's some great Cajun food on the menu - I had the shrimp & grits! They were great! Good beer menu & plenty of choices for those who don't enjoy Cajun (but who would that be?)
5/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our server, Alan, was GREAT! He knew a lot about the food, answered specific questions - AND was efficient and friendly. We came from OKC to see Darren Criss as a HS grad gift for my daughter and I was pleased by everyone from the valet parking through dinner and the concert. Alan made it easy for my daughter to get a quick bite and leave to wait in line while I finished dinner. I had questions about the food preparation - he answered them well. Food was VERY GOOD - had the voodoo shrimp and turkey burger. Thanks to Alan, I had a good idea about our dinner before it arrived . VERY pleased. Would love a bucket of the shrimp! Great pickles, too! Thanks, everyone, for a wonderful evening and making our graduation gift trip so special.

Delicious, but Pricey
This was the first time in years, probably, that I visited Crossroads. Everything was delicious and I love the menu expansion. But, I was so surprised how expensive everything was! Our pulled pork sliders appetizer was $10, and only came with two sliders. Even my silly glass of iced tea was $3.25! I really like this place, but I can't see myself venturing out here other than to have dinner before a concert. At this point, it's once a year. I guess you pretty much pay for convenience.
6/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service was good. The burgers were great. The blues mobile was really great.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Do it again
First time there. The food was AMAZING!! Chef Aaron Sanchez did an amazing job on the choices. I would definitely recommend it and come back

Covienent and tasty
Went early for Cindi Lauper show . Went for the convienence but the food was better than expected. We had the shrimp w grits and grilled mahi mahi. Key lime pie was the only disappointment . Place was not busy so service was good. Forgot to use15% coupon that was on my ticket.

Burger Promotion brought us to HOB
House of Blues celebrated their anniversary with a "buy one get one" burger deal, and that brought us back to Crossroads for dinner. The burgers were cooked the way we liked the first time (we often have to send burgers back because we don't like pink). The fries were excellent and we added salads to our order. I had to remind the server that I needed a side that I ordered, but it was still a good experience.
We love HOB, but be ready to pay the price for the food menu. It is worth it when the band is a good one.

My wife and I ate at Crossroads before The Tedeschi-Trucks concert and it just made a great concert even better with the wonderful dinner that we had before going into the concert.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
More than I expected
The food was scrumptous! I had the fried chicken which was nice and crispy on the outside while being juicy on the inside.
Potatoes were the perfect match and even the cole slaw (not my favorite) was very good. Had the bread pudding for dessert...yum, yum, need I say more?!
Thanks so much for a great meal.

Not your typical bar food.
Restaurant was very impressive. Their new menu will appeal to all appetites.

Breaking Down Walls
When we first arrived, and late... Sadly, our table was in an awful corner, with a panel blocking the stage and the restaurant. It was almost like we made reservations for the bar and not the dining hall. Well, my mother is a feisty one, and got our table moved although it meant diffusing to the restaurant staff. But they did it with a smile, and our service was great. They were two meal plates, and tastes just as delicious after the microwave the following day. The desserts were divine as well.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time to eat and see a show at House of Blues. I was surprised how good the food was. We had the cornbread, shrimp and grits, fried chicken and street tacos. Everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the shrimp and grits, very good! Cornbread is amazing....the chicken was plentiful and my son said worth the 20 minute wait to prepare it. The tacos seemed a little scarce, but were enjoyed as well.

Great Food and Fun
This was my first time visiting Crossroads. We decided to eat there before our concert and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Although our waitress was new, she did her best to answer our questions. She told us a little history about the restaurant and the art on the walls. We had a great time!
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
close to perfect
Had a get together for date night. The table next to me was very loud and roudy. I thouht a band was going to be playing but there was none at the time. The waiter was excellent. The food was fantastic. The dessert was good.

Open Mic Delight
I booked our reservation on Open Table and was granted my seating request to be front and center. Our waitress was efficient, friendly and attentive. The open mic acts consisted of a variety of music genres, ages and skill. The variation of acts was nice and a couple just made you laugh and dance in your seat. Everyone liked their food and had a great time. The only complaint was that it was quite cold in the restaraunt. Overall, I'd recommend this venue for a good time, good food and open mic.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the Blues
Business trip to Dallas brought us to the House of Blues. The waiter new his stuff, I don't like spicy & he pointed out all the spicy foods to me. I had the shrimp Po boy & it was excellent! The atmosphere was awesome. I would recommend to anyone visiting the Dallas area.

The Band Eclipse
We were there for the CD release party for Eclipse and the were awesome!!!

Dinner and Cult
It was very nice to Dirve up and from jump street, wanted to take my walet out and start spending money. Valets rocked before the SHow afterwards were swamped and did a good job of clearing the lot. Waitstaff rocked, the tall dude " sorry brother forgot your name." with a smaller round hat was worth every penny. Downstairs was great except the 3 pole dancers that had to stand in front of me... Would have been fine except Billy Duffy in rear form....................Still all in all............I'll be back with my friends.

Great first time experience
Great food, great service, very nice staff, the live music was cool but one of the bands was horrible. I made reservations and it was pretty full when we go there, my only compliant was that our table was right by the door and so we kept on getting the gust of heat but it really wasn't a big deal. We had a great time! The lobster Mac and cheese was delicious!!!
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great evening watching the open mic night before the Luke Bryan Show!!
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good eats, easy feel
Food was great, overall service was acceptable yet our server did not have good knowledge of the menu items, which could be helpful to newbies, also failed to make any recommendations, price was fair, but drinks are overpriced.

Great before an event at AAC
Although it was Friday night of Texas-OU weekend before a sellout Eagles concert at the AAC, the House of Blues was ready for the challenge. Seating was prompt, service was fast but we didn't feel rushed, and the food was really good. The location is perfect for AAC events and it's only a short walk between. Obviously, the HOB has a live stage, so it's harder to have a conversation after the music starts.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time visiting. We had heard so many things about the place and decided that if we were ever on vacation near The House of Blues then we would make sure to come by. So glad we did. Staff was very professional and friendly. They even Invited us to stay to hear music after we ate, told us about Sunday brunch, and even suggested some places to visit while we were there. My wife and I truly enjoyed ourselves.

Good food but pricey
The food and service is good, but you pay more than its worth.

Excellent Convenient Venue Dining
First visit to House of Blues in Dallas. Did not want to fight traffic and be rushed so thought we would try the whole experience and eat AT the House of Blues. We were very pleasantly surprised! Crossroads exceeded our expectations. Was very convenient, reservations equated to no wait, service was excellent, and the food was GREAT! Once we finished eating, had plenty of time to relax and check out the House of Blues. Overall an AWESOME experience and one that we will for sure do again soon!
