The baby back ribs we ordered were tough. We sent them back to order poboys but was still charged for the ribs. We didn’t realize it until leaving the restaurant. Not happy

We had a great time, music was great , service was just ok, prices of food and drink could be better. If you ever have time to go to the Gospel Brunch and that's awesome we went to the one in Vegas. The atmosphere is awesome.

Horrible experience!!
Fried chicken was not seasoned in anything. Is was awful.
Ribs were so tough we couldn’t eat.
2 sides were “unavailable” = potatoes and baked beans...but we were not told that until the meal came.
Manager explained they ran out...but we were the first people in the door and served. He then said “due to shortages we can’t get certain sides”.
We had already parked and were attending a concert there so we chose just to hang around.
Only ate cornbread and Mac and Cheese. The table next to us sent their food back and chose not to re-order anything (we didn’t know them).
Very disappointed

First time back in a while obviously. Food was surprisingly good. We had salmon, salads and apps. Salmon was fresh, portions good for the slightly inflated prices, but still quite good.
Went to see a friend's band play, so we stayed a while. Drink prices high, but gotta pay for the entertainment! Lol.
Only minor issue was that spirit selection was quite low...not many options, but probably since bands are just coming back.

Thank you James for your review! We have had difficulty getting some products in, but we are doing our best to substitute with equal or better. Our inability to get in jumbo shrimp is your gain! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

My husband and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. Our waitress shared the information with the band, and they dedicated their entire set to us. The music was great, and the servers were helpful and friendly. It sure was glad to hear live music again.

We went to HOB for fun night out with live band. Restaurant empty and were seated right away. However, it took an hour to get one drink and a second hour to get the next. When we went to order from menus handed to is open arrival, we were told they were not serving dinner any longer. It was 830!! Awful service and we left to go eat somewhere else.

The House of Blues was a great venue. Missing 3 was an outstanding band. I was not impressed that the bar closed shortly after the first set because of too few people in the place. The band and I were not impressed with this call. They already paid for the band so why not keep them playing.

A great atmosphere for everyone! Good food, great music, and the customer service was over the top. We were there on opening night since closing for COVID, everything was perfect. Thank you to the hostess and the manager for making sure our daughter's bday celebration was a success! The bread pudding was so good! ;)

Made a reservation and arrived on time to see that there were only 4 other diners in the whole place.
There was a young man on stage singing cover songs with an acoustic guitar. He was okay, but I expected more from HOB on a Thursday evening.
Food was good but a little pricey. Staff was very attentive.
Overall, just an “ok” experience.

We booked a table at the House of Blues Restaurant prior to our concert. The staff was attentive, and the ambiance is fantastic. Live music on the restaurant stage started at about 6:30pm. The food was good, and we opted for a variety of menu options - apps and burgers/sandwiches. Our issue was with the mixed drinks. We went from a watered-down marg to a mojito with straight alcohol and finally, a disappointing hurricane. These are relatively standard cocktails, but they were awful. Despite the fun appearances of the restaurant's cocktails, I would stick with wine or beer.

Second time we have made reservations before a show and it didn’t get better with age. Food was mediocre at best, service was slow and “working a double”, drink was weak and a bottle of Michelob Ultra was $8.

Food was very good, but could have been better if our waitress would have got our request right. She was new I believe. The atmosphere was great. Priced a little high, I would go back.

We happened to be going to a concert there, and decided to grab dinner beforehand. Neat place, but the food was not anything we’d come back for. My salmon was a bit overcooked, and my husband didn’t care at all for the BBQ sandwich he ordered.
