My son and I came down for the Waterparks concert and enjoyed a nice dinner together! The staff at both the concert and our waitress at the restaurant were excellent!!

Great option if seeing a concert after dinner. They give you backstage access before anyone else comes in.

Everything was fine just not outstanding in any way. Have visited other HOB locations that were better.

The ribs were dry and tough. Burger was also dry and cake with cold fries. Our server was impolite.

I asked for my juicy Lucy to be cooked medium rare, it came out medium well if not well. I also had the Cesar salad with 100 day old croutons. I could have possibly chipped a tooth. Way over priced for the poor quality of food that was served. My girlfriend had gotten the Cajun chicken pasta, and for a 17$ pasta dish I feel like there should have been more white meat in the dish, rather than the chewy hard bits.

This place is A1. Everything about my night was awesome including my food. High drink prices are to be expected due to low ticket cost. I would go to the House of blues Cleveland every single night if I could. Thanks for an awesome memory!

Live music would have helped but the band called in sick on a Saturday night. Music playing in restaurant could barely be heard. We picked this place because we thought we'd hear Blues music but wasn't the case. A little pricey too for what you get. Wouldn't tell people not to go but I wouldn't go back.

Four of us ordered appetizers and the large family meat plate. Appetizers were good. Meat platter came out with cole slaw in middle all mixed up with meats making too hard to share and eat. We didnt get side plates or sauces or enough napkins. We had to ask for these.
Cole slaw should have come out in a separate bowl and meat portions set up for 4 to share better. Platter was advertised to have sauces. Sauces should have come out with the platter along with extra napkins or ask if we wanted. No bread was served. Should be some bread with a meal like this.
Waitress never asked if we needed anything or how is the food. We had to wait to get her attention.
A restuarant like yours should have a master waiter, or manager watching over the waiters to make sure they are doing thier job and make sure all the customers are being attended to in a timely and proper manner.

Our waitress was amazing. She was attentive, not pushy at all. We were able to eat and drink without having a mouthful of food. My only complaint is that I made a reservation and when we arrived, the hostess said, "we will have to see if anything is open because we had a lot of walk ins. What!!!! What was the point of a reservation then. They seated us in the side room, which was more than half empty.

The only issue I had is for some reason I was sent a link to reserve a table for the day before the concert I was attending. So when I showed up I had no table, but the staff there really looked out for my wife and I and we still had a great night! I would definitely recommend Cleveland HoB!

14 of us drove from Erie PA to gather for a friends birthday and see Todrick Hall the same night. I used Open Table for the reservation, which could not have been easier! We had 2 fabulous servers!! Efficient and attentive! I was very surprised when we didn’t have an automatic 18% gratuity added on to our bills with such a large group. Definitely a wonderful evening was had by all! I would definitely recommend your restaurant and venue to others. Thank you for adding to the enjoyment and mirth of our evening!

I loved that we got ushered to our musical event and did not have to wait outside in the rain. Every single staff member was super nice. Can’t wait to visit again. I did forget my mason jar. Thank you

The nacho appetizer was very good and so were the drinks. I also recommend the pulled pork or the chicken sandwich. The food has gotten much better here since the last time I visited

Went and saw the Hardy concert. Thought we’d get dinner before. We got to eat outside. Waitress was very nice and knowledgeable. Made great suggestions. Voodoo shrimp is awesome! Had shrimp and grits for an entree. Another great suggestion. Very pleasant experience, we’ll be back.

Food taste and quality was better than expected, but I was looking forward to the New Orleans Muffeletta that I found on an online menu for the restaurant only to find it was not offered on their in-house menu. My party had a 15% reduction on our bill because our food took a bit longer to be served than expected. This was satisfactory to all of us, and I would go there again.

Service was slow supposedly because of a big party in another room. Should have more staff if that is the case. Also listed a birthday on reservation and server never inquired.

Nice atmosphere- There were a total of 7 diners having both dinner and cocktails. Drinks were splendid, however, 2 of the guests did not care for their entrees- The chicken wings were way too salty and the brisket nacho's had a very sweet sauce on the brisket

We would have gone to a different restaurant if we had more time to research the surrounding area. The menu was very limited and making changes to the items on the menu took a manager.
