Great, professional and attentive service from the hosts to the servers to the young man who validates your ticket. Excellent food and drinks (I had a Shirley Temple). Good value. I'd highly recommend having dinner here before your show and validating before you leave the restaurant. Helps prevent you from standing in a huge line after the show to validate.

The ambiance was great. Singer with a plugged in acoustic, not too loud to still hear table convos, and fun background music. Jambalaya was fantastic, but service grade lower for how long it took for food to come out. Get your res to eat before a show and go early to give yourself time to enjoy the wall art!

Had a great time at the House of Blues Anaheim. Food and service were excellent. The atmosphere was also great and enjoyed listening to the singer/acoustic guitar. Only reason for 4 star overall, instead of 5, was drinks. All drinks were tasty, but had only trace amounts of alcohol. For the price, would have expected a better pour.

I did not feel we got value for our money. Three very basic entrees, two sodas and two beers for &100 . We ate there to get early entry into the show that night. sounded good in theory but didn’t work out so well.

For starters, my wife and I were sat right away. In less than a minute, our Server came to the table. Ashley answered all of our questions and made some great recommendations for food and drink. The food was out to our table in less than 10 minutes. We really enjoyed everything about The House of Blues!

It was mine and my two kids first time eating here and it was a pretty great experience. We ordered the Half Rack Baby Back Ribs, the Brisket Tacos and the Cajun Chicken Pasta with Shrimp. These were all very delicious. The Cajun pasta was a little spicy for my 10 year old daughter. I personally prefer my pasta creamy but I understand its not Italian pasta, its Cajun. My kids made themselves a little root beer float that turned out to be the cherry on the top. Overall we enjoyed the taste of Southern Comfort Food, the Southern Hospitality and the Live Entertainment and we look forward to going back another time.

Service was horrible! Slow and inconsistent . The food is always good. Our server was a nice kid for sure. But it didn’t make up for the bad service.

We went on Valentine’s Day and we were very impressed with the live music! Incredible band...Darden I think they were called. The pizza was amazing but the shrimp and grits was not filling and was very “soupy”. The service and cocktails were great. I’m definitely getting the beast of bourbon again.

Overall it was a great experience

We were 15 minutes late and the hostess told us she couldnt keep our reservation. She changed her tune when my husband snapped at her. Also, very expensive for what it is. Music wasnt great either. Wont be going back.

Service was great. The food was good and we were able to enjoy a great show after dinner. However it was disappointing to know HOB does not carry any good coffee. No cappuccino, lattes, espresso.etc. only plain coffee and it was not freshly made. It was not even hot. I had to ask for cream and sugar too, so by the time I could drink it it was cold.

It didn't get busy till about 6p.m. They do have amazing happy hour from 3-6 and then late night happy hour has well which was perfect since we had a concert there from 7 to 11. They have live music as well that started at about 7.

The service staff was very helpful and welcoming. We were originally seated outside, but when it got too cold for us, the staff helped us to move inside. The cozy lighting, art displayed on the walls, and live music all made for a very cozy ambiance. We were both delighted with our food. It was well made and came out fairly fast. Overall, we had a great experience at House of Blues and are glad we chose to dine there.

The bar was busy due to show but the bartenders were horrible! Surprising since they have shows all the time. Food service was much better. Food was good and spiced southern style nicely. Be prepared to yell at each other though because the place is loud. Music was good background atmosphere!

It's been a great experience, the live band was pretty good relatively speaking. Their music was amazing just the singer was about 7/10 but other than that service and food was pretty good. Would definitely go there again
