Very slow service
So it is loud when the band is playing. Hard to have a conversation. Most of the food is spicy, beware. Oh, the ceiling MOVES violently when there is a crowd upstairs in the main theater. It is very unsettling. I’m not sure we will ever be back. So many better places to experience the blues in Chicago and better food.
Great place for blues and Cajun!
Food was not great, service okay. Was not busy seems like we should have had better service. Food really was just low end.
We went there for the music and it was great! We weren't in any rush and enjoyed the 3 hours we were there. However, the server was probably the worst one we ever had. Her other tables around us were obviously frustrated as well. I would not count one employee against the restaurant though. We are looking forward to going back!
Great meal in a unique environment. Food was true to it’s roots
The food was great but the menu did not mention red pepper flakes would be used generously on one item we ordered. The atmosphere was good but not nearly as fun as I had imagined. It was fun to go once but probably not again.
House of Blues Chicago was one of the only restaurants willing to take a reservation for our large group of 18. The staff was extremely helpful, particularly the hostess who worked hard to set up a table to meet our needs, including a high chair and being seated together at one table. Our waitress was patient and friendly. It took a little while for our food to come out, but given our size this was expected and we had drinks and live music to keep us happy. HOB is a very cool spot with unique decor. It was easy to get to and we had a very positive experience.
Food, decor, and live music were better than expected. Our waitress was polite and nice but was spread thin. This meant that we struggled to let her know when we wanted a drink refill, dessert, or our check. We also asked for a receipt after paying cash (work reimbursement) and left without one after waiting 20 minutes of waiting. Love the atmosphere, worth the patience, but I don't advise going there if you are in a time crunch.
Food was ok. Moreso diner food. Not really high grade. Lotta fried greasiness. Hot wings full of grease, but meat undercooked and over seasoned. Will not return.
