We went for dessert and cocktails. The desserts were generous and tasty. The cocktails overall were good (the Manhattan was a bit disappointing). The "Frisky Whisky" was excellent.

Just wanted to say we have eaten at this location several times before shows, and this last visit was incredible! Destinie provided the best service we’ve ever had (and ever other server was great, but she was a stand out!). She was attentive, asked questions to understand our tastes and even made great suggestions for sauces to try with our meal. We will be back for sure, and might just request Destinie as our server.

We were on our way to see a concert at the House of Blues that evening. It felt like a good time to have a proper date night by having dinner at the restaurant. We have never ate in the House of Blues restaurant. We were not disappointed in the restaurant, the service nor the food. We had a great time before we had to leave to go to the concert. I ordered Jambalaya, which was good (but not as good as I have had elsewhere, including New Orleans). I would order it again, tho. I also ordered gumbo soup, which was also very good. My wife had the Brisket tacos. She loved the tacos and the brisket. She would suggest going light on the sauce on the tacos. Overall, the price of the meal was reasonable, the food was very good and the service was great and very attentive

While I enjoyed the evening, others in my group had trouble hearing each other over the noise. We had requested outdoor seating because of this, but our reservation request online and phone call confirmation I made was not met due to a private event in that section,

Good food and ambiance, live music was good on an otherwise quiet Sunday night. Food was good but portions are large so maybe share or split mains and starters if you want a dessert!

Absolutely HORRIBLE experience! We used to frequent the Anaheim House of Blues when they were still located in Downtown Disney, but this was our first time at the new location. Everything has changed for the worst and we will not be back. Prices are outrageous for portion sizes. I ordered an entree size salad with champagne vinegarette dressing that arrived with about 1 cup of lettuce and bright yellow "mustard" tasting dressing. Supposedly this is their version of champagne. The only other dressings available were all cream style so I sent it back. We also ordered a flat bread pizza which cost $14 and was the size of $6 personal size pizza served anywhere else. We typically bring in our own wine to restaurants and had called ahead of time to inquire on what they charge for corkage. They never answer their phone. We did leave a message, however 2 days later..still no return call. When we arrived there were only 3 other couples in the restaurant, so definitely not too busy to answer the phone. We brought in our own wine and were questioned about what was in the bag as if it were a bomb. The real shock was that they charge $40 for corkage!! The level of greed is disgusting. After sending the salad bag, the manager came over to our table to inquire about whether there was a problem. He was completely cold in personality and did nothing to rectify the situation. The only positive thing about this whole experience was our waiter, Daniel, who was extremely polite and joyful. Actually, he is way too good for this place!

I love everything about this space! Food was outstanding- you can’t go wrong with anything you choose!! But what made our night memorable was the impeccable service from Danny!! He made the night so fun and his positive energy can’t help but rub off on you and make you have the best night!! Entertainment was awesome (Papa J & Richard), it was an all around great experience!!

Great concert venue, however service on restaurant needs work. I asked for my salad 1st got it second and no bread with pasta dish not really cool. Service was okay, but server was catering to table with more people not cool even though I was alone I tip like I'm not.

This was my 1st trip to the House, so I wanted the full experience: dinner, drinks, a great show.
I was early so was able to be seated 1 hr. early which was perfect. All staff seemed genuinely happy to be there and the service was excellent.
Food was SO good (Carolina Mess) and the server was very helpful throughout.
The restauran/bar portion of the evening definitely deserves 5⭐

The service was ok but slow in first getting drinks. Friendly waitress. The ribs were a real effort getting the meat off the bones. Flavor was good but left 1/2 of them behind because of the toughness in eating them. Salad, beans, coleslaw, corn and cornbread were good. The entertainment was good local talent.
