Excellent food & service.

Great place to eat before the show. Plus you can get in the side and not have to wait outside. Make sure you make reservations though!

Food and atmosphere were good and what we’d expect. Service was “weird” in that the young lady serving us spoke very quietly and fast so we needed to ask her to repeat herself and number of times. Downtown Cleveland impressed us with its cleanliness and variety of night life. Will go back.

Went for a pre-concert dinner and was very pleased with our meal, our portion and the speed of service.

The food we got was great, but we did wish that there were more options on the menu. I came during this past summer and they had some great specials, would love to see them on the menu again!

We decided to have dinner here because we were attending a concert at the venue. I waited 45 minutes for my first drink from the bar and we waited 45 minutes for our food after ordering. Then we had to wait 20 more minutes to cash out and settle our check. The server was new so she was misinformed about the menu and rather than say she didn't know she kept answering questions incorrectly about food on the menu and there was a couple dining with us that is gluten-free due to allergies so we had to send back things because of this she should have just said she didn't know rather than give us a line about how certain dishes were prepared. Honestly I wouldn't go back here the food is too expensive for the portion and flavor, and the bartender actually put olives in a peach martini which is hilarious but I had to send that back once I got it and wait for another drink to be made correctly. All in all it wasn't a very good meal start to finish.

Great experience never had a bad dinner or poor service here. I feel like I'm in Memphis or NOLA when I come here. Efficient wait staff.

Very friendly, nice and accommodating, particularly to have dinner before a concert. The food was okay but several items that we ordered did not come as requested and put our wait behind 15 -20 minutes more.

Kinda disappointed when our TALL BEERS came out in a plastic glass. Kinda hard to hold that!! I think for this type of restaurant using plastic glasses is very cheap!!!!

Meal was good and service was good but when we wanted to enter rear door of concert hall, which is usually what we do after we eat and go to a show, a man insisted on each of us have a restaurant receipt to enter that door. Well that was the first we heard of this. Only one person from our 6 person table kept their receipt. So 5 people had to go get a receipt to enter the door. The servers should ask if you are going to the show and tell you to hold onto your receipt. This instruction was not given by the server. To top is all off the guy at the door was a rude and he told us to move 4 times to stand somewhere else. Annoying man and very upsetting to be treated like that.

The concert was excellent. We go every year to see Fayrewether. We usually alway eat at HOB restaurant shows but maybe not anymore.

Overall food was good. The veggies on my steak salad were a little dry. They were grilled. Probably needed more oil when they were roasted.

I had a Cobb salad there when my food came out the chicken was rubbery and slimy. I was asked my a floor manager how my food was and he told me because the chicken is smoked it’s a hit or miss!! I explained that my husband owns a smoker and that was not the issues. I enjoy smoked meats but I don’t enjoy slimy rubbery meat that barely looks like chicken. I would never recommend the food again and the manager did nothing to make it better he stated he was glad the other food was good and left. I will attach a photo that I took of my horrid food.

We had an amazing time eating at the HOB before the Mod Sun show. Our appetizer, the Carolina Mess, was a creative take on Poutine. I got the fantastic Juicy Lucy burger, and the hubby got the Bacon Cheeseburger. Both were flavorful, cooked perfectly, and presented nicely. Also, the sweet potato fries were heavenly...They were crisp on the outside, yet melted in our mouths. Perfect meal before an outstanding show!
