House of Blues Restaurant & Bar - Dallas Ratings and Reviews
Hostess was amazing, cheerful, genuine. She asked if we had visited before and we added that it was our first time due to our wedding anniversary. She was sweet in saying she would pass it along to our server. Server was complete opposite of hostess, ALMOST brought down our cheer level but we were so into the live music it didn't happen. Order the Tot Mess as a shared app- this is not your kids tater tots! It was DELISH. Weird/disappointed that there is an extensive Moscow Mule menu but the drinks were served in glasses (?!). The decor and ambiance leave something to admire on every inch of the restaurant!
Food was great. But our waitress was never at our table. Took forever to get her to come back and take our order (see we were ready when she brought our drinks. It was our 1st time there and we were taking in all the ambiance.) Never got refills or her coming over to ask if we needed anything. I finally waved her down and I asked for a Togo box and had to ask her twice more after that once when she brought the check (no box) then again when she came to pick up the payment (still no box). Plus we sat at our table for another 20 mins after I asked her for the check.
To busy of a place for there only to be 3 waiters.
Went for dinner before the Los Lonely Boys concert. After reading several reviews, we thought it best to stick with the burgers, nothing fancy. The burgers were actually pretty good, although a bit small.
There was a local blues band playing throughout dinner so it was a bit loud, but they were good.
My wife was upset that the ladies bathrooms were in pretty bad shape... she wanted that noted in any review I wrote.
Dallas House of Blues has been a venue that my husband and I are willing to travel 2.5 hours to go to, the live music, great food and people are the best. We have been here to the Restaurant each time we have come to see one of our favorite artists perform DJ Shadow will always bring us to this place of Great Food and People. Thank you for an AMAZING weekend with my husband.
We were visiting Dallas from another state. The service and food were great! However, the main reason for us going was because it was Free Blues Night and we wanted to hear live music that allowed teenagers under 18. The music was supposed to start at 6:00 but nobody was there. We kept asking if there was going to be someone playing. We were there until 9:30 pm catching up with friends thank goodness because the musician/band scheduled to be there NEVER SHOWED! HUGE disappointment!
Visited Dallas and wanted to take wife to nice place and listen to live music, well the live music never showed up. Meal was fair wife enjoyed her salad saying it was one of the better she had ever had but my steak was not very good and over cooked. How can you over cook a steak in Dallas? Made a reservation for a restaurant that had 6 people in it. As a concert venue it is great ( so I am told by locals we know ) but I have had much better experiences at the Florida and Vegas locations.
The bartender who waited on me was phenomenal. I wish I remembered his name. I was dining alone that evening, and he went above & beyond to make me feel comfortable, making excellent recommendations & even brought me an extra piece of fish when my salmon salad came out with what he said was a smaller piece than normal. There was a live band playing that only added to the great vibes. Thanks for a great evening!
Two people in our party. We each had a coupon for a free appetizer. We asked the waitress if we could both use them. She said yes. She said she would put the order in on two separate receipts. When we asked for our check she came back and said she could only give us one free appetizer. I asked her if she took off the more expensive one and she returned with it still on the check. We ended up speaking to the manager because we did not think it was fair that we abided with the terms on the coupon. And also we did not appreciate the waitress telling us she could deduct the appetizer and in the end she charged us. Their most expensive appetizer is $14 and is supposed to be the house favorite. It only had 5 and a half pieces of shrimp. Definitely not $14 worth. The rest of our food did taste good and I would go back because I enjoyed the music also. The manager did end up removing both appetizers from our checks.
Service was extremely slow just to get a drink. Took forever. Food was cold and salmon not cooked all the way. It was mushy. They forgot yo put asparagus in our salads. So had yo wait again for that. Waiter didn't believe it came with it so double checked us. Drinks were incredibly expensive. Will for sure drink somewhere else before I come thete again for a show. Just wayyyyyyyyy tooooooooo expensive for everything and for what you get. Probably will never eat there again
Got free tix to Jimmy Vaughn otherwise would not have happened. First table was too dark. 1st waitperson, Audrey, eventually disappeared and handed us off to some guy. Felt dis'd. All worked out. Food was good. Again, really there for Jimmy Vaughn since we got free tix. Which we appreciate. Thanks.
Problems with the kitchen messed up my food. Came cold and then took over 25 minutes to replace it. Had a concert so we skipped dinner. Everyone who ordered burgers or flatbreads looked happy. Wish I had ordered that or been told it would take so long. Inattentive waiter didn't help as I had to keep calling him over for drink refills, but manager was nice. And the Miller Lite tap was out. If you go there, get a burger and stay away from fancy things like meatloaf....
Food was good. I had buffalo chicken salad, FB had a flatbread that was extra crispy crust which he likes. We were there for a concert, and the server was not well versed in the concert venue. Didn't seem interested in finding out the answers to my questions. Live Music in the dining area was good.
My server was great. She told me about the skip the line option at the end of our meal also. However, The guy who brought our food wasn't looking at the table when he set down our food and dropped half of my food in my lap. My burger was great and my daughter loved her food also. There was a local guy singing on stage after we got there too. Prices were cheap for Dallas standards. We will be back most definitely.
I was not too impressed with food quality. The meat loaf did not taste like meat loaf. The potatos tasted good. Too pricy for how it tastes. Beer prices are way too pricey. Also ordered a burbon cake pudding which actually tasted great, which was only thing I really enjoyed. The wings I ordered were tasty, but needed more sauce and also were small and pricey as well.
First visit Great and entertaining ... show was good.. seating was less to be desire,if standing, no bar tables to place drinks or food. Paying extra for a small chair was out of the question paying an extra 36.00 for chairs that look like folding was a NO!! .
I was not at all impressed by the food or music. My waitress attempted to help me choose the right item from the menu but everything I ordered was a fail. I was visiting Texas from Los Angeles, CA so I am accustomed to great food, unfortunately this place did not have it. The entertainment wasn't what I expected either.
