    7/19/14 was our second time going to Cross Roads. I make reservations so it's never a problem getting a table. For how busy the restaurant is, the service is really prompt and you never have to ask for anything because staff is on it. If you are in town for a concert at the House of Blues, I would recommend having dinner before concert starts. If you spend $20 at the restaurant you get a pass the line pass. That works out really well to get into the venue among the first. Your chances of getting a good spot to watch the concert is guaranteed.

    This restaurant is wonderful. Good prices, great food, friendly atmosphere and a band playing outside where you can sit afterward and listen to music. Staff is courteous, and friendly. Wonderful place to eat, and I would suggest using open table to make your reservations. No matter what time your reservation is, you can go in earlier if you like and they will accommodate that. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    I had a party of 9 that was put onto four tables pushed together Two people sat across from each other with one seated on the end. This meant that space on the table was at a premium. The meal came out immediately following the appetizers That left everyone eating their appetizers and main meal together at the same time The lack of space on the table because of all the plates was an issue There was no obvious mention in the entree descriptions that the food would be spicy. (Notably the meatloaf) It was spicy, and for some people who were not expecting it to be, the experience was not a happy one.

    Once we were seated the night went downhill fast. Our waitress was slow and uninterested in providing any type of service except to plop our over priced and ridiculously spicy food on our table only to reappear to give us our check. We were really disappointed in the house of blues.

    I thought the quality of the food was above average. I had jambalaya and it was perfection; not too dry nor too moist and properly spiced. My wife had the broiled fish and it also was properly prepared. Although the restaurant is a little pricey, I can see us going again.

    The atmosphere and service were good. The food was not. My kids had the French Dip, and the meat was dry and without seasoning. I had the salmon, and once I added salt and pepper, it was better. Hubby had the pork chops which had no seasoning whatsoever! We will not be returning when we come back to Orlando.

    Visited Crossroads at House of Blues Orlando on a Monday evening after making reservations on Opentable.com. (Which was very convenient.) Service from Danielle was fantastic. We were a party of 4 with 2 children. Our glasses were always filled and she seemed to know whenever we needed something before we asked. The menu selection was great and prices were what we were expecting. If you are coming with children, I would suggest reservations, as it is a popular spot.

    We didn't know what to expect since we hadn't been there before but the service was excellent and the food was very good! Our waitress was very helpful and patient as we had trouble with our restaurant.com certificate on our mobile app. We were seated in the back section that overlooked the lake and it was much more quiet than out front which suited us just fine and we were able to view the fire coming out of the volcano at the Rainforest Cafe across the lake. Overall it was a very enjoyable dining experience and would definitely recommend it.

    My family and I have eaten here numerous times. Each visit has been enjoyable because of the staff, excellent food selections and the atmosphere. We have always had a relaxed experience and never feel rushed. Notably, because of the location to La Nuba we eat here prior to each show.

    A group of friends went after a conference and loved it. Ordered Voodoo shrimp, lobster mac and cheese, mushroom sliders and shrimp and grits. The flavors were bursting and the ambiance was just right. I have had lobster mac and cheese before, and I can honestly it was the best that I ever had.

    We were looking for something good that can satisfy all the dietary restrictions in the group. someone recommended this place. We really did not expect much of it since it's in the centre of a tourist trap. But we were happily surprised. My husband and i shared the Pulled Pork Sliders, the fish tacos and the roasted tomato flat bread. All were amazing. We took left over flatbread home and i had it for breakfast. It was still so good. I would highly recommend this place for groups and families.. Other food people had at our table and loved.... the fried chicken, the burger, the greek salad ..... The server was so nice and accommodating and patient taking all the orders with the gluten free or fat free or spice free restrictions.

    Family of 7 (5 kids age ranging from 10 to 18)...2 adults...on a family vacation. Chose this restaurant and booked a reservation because we knew we were visiting downtown Disney. We were not happy with the food. 2 out of the 7 of our family actually enjoyed their dinner. The total bill was $161 so we could have gone to another restaurant and received really tasty food and probably two different trips there. Very dissatisfied. The food that came out was cold - even the appetizers (corn bread) and entrees. Won't go back again!! Waiter didn't check on our drink refills either. HORRIBLE!!

    My wife and I went for dinner and got there at 4:30. Happy hour is between 3-5PM and they have several 1/2 price beers (Corona included). Our server was great and had some good suggestions. The Voodoo Shrimp is incredible (although a little pricey at $15.99). The Cornbread is amazing (comes with the Voodoo Shrimp or can be ordered by itself). I had the Striploin which was pretty good - cooked perfectly Med rare, but was a little tough for a $26 steak. My wife had a Shrimp dish with a Grits cake that she said was amazing. Good restaurant overall, live music everyday (started a little later than we were there), fun atmosphere.

    We made a reservation for 6 but needed to bump it to six and did so with no additional wait;although the hostess was a little rude about it. The bathroom was not clean, and the restaurant was very cold, but they did turn down the fans for us. The food took a long time and we all expected it to be luke warm, but it wasn't (; it was very tasty, I recommend the voodoo shrimp. For Orlando, it was reasonably priced.
