Upon entering the hostess was so lovely. She had read my reservation request and was wanting to be accommodating to my girls birthday. We were sat down and the waitress took a long time to take our drink order and then seemingly forgot about us. We watched our drinks get warm at the bar and ultimately got up to get them ourselves. The food was subpar at best. The bbq was fatty, the cheese pizza tasted worse than what school pizza would be and the fries were cold. The manager who came around was not warm and not once were the empty dishes cleaned. They highlight was the desert brought out for my girls birthday. Which they scarfed down because they were hungry. Worst restaurant experience in awhile.

Been to the house of blues many times for concerts but this was our second time eating in the restaurant. Again..we were not disappointed! The food and drinks were amazing and it was my hubbys birthday weekend so we had dinner then went to see MAYDAY in The Parish. We will definitely be back and I would recommend this place. I ordered the bbq bacon burger and it was perfection! I cant wait to come back and try something different. Thanks House of Blues for making our night special!

Very much enjoyed our trip to House of Blues Anaheim. We went for lunch and sat on the patio (our choice). Quiet at lunchtime. Patio is nice, but not spectacular. Food made up for it though! Husband and I had Wedge Salads. Should have shared because they were BIG! Our waiter Daniel was fantastic! Awesome service. Extremely polite and very nice. Hubby loved the margaritas. Would love to go back when a band is playing.

I heard alot about this place from people so I decided to give it a try. The first outside impression and the greeting from the door was very nice. Our party were seated early even though we there early before our reservation time. The fact that we were accommodated with a nice size requested booth was good. The vibe inside from the crowd and the local jazz performers were a cool relaxing vibe. Even though many might say the decor didn't belong its tide all together with the vibe of jazz. The food on the other hand that was a different matter and disappointment all together. The amount that you have to fork out for the portion size that is given is ridiculous. Some plates came out plated very nice and well put together others came out like they just tossed it in the dish. The other thing is that there menu has more beverages then food to choose from. Besides a vegan disk size burger, grilled vegetables ,or salad the menu is not vegan friendly. That's the only downfall people that don't eat seafood or pork or vegan this place when it come to food will not be the place for you. Now drinks,music, and a relaxing vibe it's a go to.

Extremely disappointed I made reservations and was told I could not have happy hour prices in the restaurant
That was the only reason I came to the restaurant was to have a couple of cocktails and appetizers before the concert
And as far as the concert the main liner did not come out until 10pm witch was BS they open the doors at 7 pm and over sold the event you could not even move in there and to get to the bathrooms was a joke took 30 minutes
Extremely disappointed and unfortunately it costed me over 300.00
Will probably never go back

We were there for an event and decided to reserve a seat with open table prior to event however service was so bad we got up and left. Our drinks took 20 minutes to be delivered once we ordered and then The server left and it took her 20 more minutes for our server to come back to our table and take our order. Because we didn’t want be late to our event we left! It was the worse experience ever! And on op of the the server was rude!!!

1st time here since they moved from downtown Disney. Much bigger! We went to eat before a concert and had a good experience. We had a few appetizers and drinks. The briskets nachos are a must! Wings were good and the shrimp rocked! Our waitress was really friendly but I think she was spread too thin. They needed more help for a concert night. It took me 20 minutes to get a drink, the manager actually got it for me. Nice guy who was running around. On the way out I told him thanks and he gave us front of line passes to get into the venue. I highly recommend HOB Anaheim and will be back! Just get a few more people working on concert nights!

Food is becoming too simple for the price you pay. The cob salad used to be generous and outstanding, this is now just a simple salad. Ok it's a music restaurant but we haven't been able to talk to each other during the whole dinner (this is a nice place to go if you have social adversion). Avoid karaoke nights, some people believe they are good singers... my ears are still bleeding.

If it wasn't for a certificate, I wouldn't eat here. Over-priced and over salted. There are a lot more better options in the area. Service was good, but food needs work.

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!
