House of Blues Restaurant & Bar - Dallas Ratings and Reviews
This was a fabulous start to a night on the town. The entire venue is wonderful and houses a concert hall which was also great. The food was a 5/5 and the staff and service were excellent! The only thing that I can say that wasn't great was that it was quite chilly in the restaurant and I was cold for the entire meal and had to keep my jacket on.
My friends and I ate at Crossroads before an event in the theater onsite. It was open mic night (Wed). Live music is one thing. Live music from people better off at karaoke is another. Disruptive with the kind of entertainment value the performers weren't going for. We'd hope to get in some good gossiping, but we could barely hear ourselves except in the blessed moments between sets. Even the waitress could barely hear our orders. Honestly, if the music has been superb, it was still too loud for the small dining area.
Having said all that, the food was great. We had the lobster mac & cheese, the chicken breast and the street tacos. Our waitress was attentive and swift. I recommend going, just check what the live music is to be before booking, and don't expect to do any catching up.
We were going to the House of Blues to watch a friend who was in the band that night. Made reservations for a large party at Crossroads to have dinner before the show. Table was ready when we arrived. The ambiance and service were very good but the food was very salty. I like salt and normally that would be the last thing I would complain about but it was too much for my taste. I had the shrimp and grits so I thought maybe they were trying to cover up less than fresh shrimp. But others ordered the bacon wrapped meatloaf and grilled chicken and had the same experience. The sandwiches and burgers were acceptable. Maybe they should stick to that kind of menu.
Went for a before-the-concert meal. Food was okay, but small portions & the service lacked. No drink refills for the kids, Brought my beer late, out of what I wanted & never asked if I needed another. The salad came with the meal instead of before, took a long time to get served. Tried to pull the food plates before we were finished, several times...Will only go again if it's convenient.
Crossroads is decent. The food is average, on par with any other American diner-themed restaurant (think Chilis, Bennigans, Applebys, TGIFridays). The food averages about $20 for entrees. I found the drinks to be unnecessarily expensive, I paid $15 for a Hurricane (but it did come with a keepsake House Of Blues glass; still too expensive, though, in my opinion). If a band happens to be playing, it is very LOUD, so conversation will only be possible when the band isnt on stage. Our waiter was very personable. I would defintely go again, great place for a group outing, whether or not you see a show in the main auditorium.
After reading all the bad reviews I was nervous about eating there but we were attending the Robert Earl Keen concert. We ate within an hour. The wait staff was attentive and helpful. The food was good, but a little pricey for a hamburger. All in all a good experience!
We arrived at our reservation time at 6:00 pm prior to a concert at 7:30. We did not get out food until 7:05. Had to "wolf it down" to get to AAC in time. The order was wrong, but no time to correct it. Not sure if it was a waiter or kitchen issue.
Won't eat there again.
Food was so so. Waiter was NOT attentive. Music was great. I had a burger which was food but my fries were soggy and only warm. My sister had lobster mac and cheese which she said was delicious. The waiter did not refill drinks promptly and when I didn't like my mystery woman margarita (way too sweet) and asked for a Angry Orchard Hard Apple Cider it came 15 minutes later and in the bottle. A bit disappointed.
good wait staff, but as you move to the show - if you are there for a show- the staff inside become hateful towards patrons. And as you try to leave, they herd you through the upstairs club so you can spend more $$$, then when you try to turn and take the stairs out, they force you back and say you MUST take the elevator.
There was nothing positive about our dining experience here. The food was unappetizing and served to the 5 diners at our table at different times. The temperature in the restaurant was very chilly with the front door allowing extremely cold air into the dining room. The waiter was inattentive and frequently absent from the dining room. An extremely disappointing experience.
Loved sharing the amateur night show with my family. Not very knowledgeable on wine however the establishment was gracious enough to let me taste before buying. We actually ordered two glasses of different wines recommended by bartender and sent one back with no charge. Thank you! Food was quite good and fun was had by all watching the show and joking around with our waitress.
The food we got was awesome...pasta bolognese is amazing, as is the bread pudding. My husband ordered the quesadillas as a starter and then the jambalaya and bread pudding...of those three items he only actually received the quesadillas. I had already finished my pasta and his jambalaya never arrived, so we asked the waiter and he said there was a mix-up in the kitchen. By that time, our concert was getting ready to start soon so we said just forget it, let's get dessert. We both ordered a bread pudding but the waiter only brought out one, which we shared because at that point we just wanted to get out of there and go see our concert (King Diamond). They were very busy that night but forgetting two items is kind of over the top.
I arrived on a quiet night so was one of the few people in the place. I enjoyed some great southern cooking. I highly recommend the buttermilk fried chicken. The service was great and the waiter was very jazz knowledgeable. We talked about the early days of jazz and the folk artwork on the walls. A good ending to my day!
The atmosphere was fun and attractive, however the dining experience was one that I would not recommend. First off, They sat us in a booth where the seats were so low that the table came up to my "upper chest" area.....try cutting a steak with your elbows swung up to your shoulders. My steak was very undercooked. Our server Armondo was concerned and agreed that the steak was not cooked to Meduim. 20 minutes later, new steak appeared on my table. This steak was so overdone, it was almost uneatable. They did however offer me a salad or soup, "on the house", while I waited. I generously declined and at the end of the dinner, they did knock off 15% for the steak disaster. Please purchase a coat rack. There was no place to hang my coat.
this is the second time that we've been here. The first time we had a fantastic experience waitress gave great service and we had great food came out just perfect. The second time around, the waiter was fantastic however you're back end kitchen Really needs to work on it because we pretty much had to hurry up and eat before we get into the concert. Because we basically had to scarf down our food, we didn't really get to enjoy it.
They lost our ticket and it took over an hour for us to get our food. Our waiter was very nice and came out to tell us our food got lost and had been sitting in the window and forgotten about. They didn't pick up our tab which they should have, they just gave us a free beer.
We went there before a show because we wanted to eat and didn't have time to go anywhere else. What a nice surprise! We were not expecting much but the food and service were very good. It was open mic night and there were some very talented singers as well so the overall experience was great. We will be sure to go there again the next time we are attending a show.
The food was average. Best was the banana bread pudding but it was served cold whereas most restaurants serve it heated. Sliders were ok, but buns were still cold (as though they had been refrigerated.)
The music was entertaining, but noise level made it hard to hear. Most people were not paying attention to it.
Although it was a bit loud, the food and service was very good. We went before a concert at the HOB Dallas, so it was very busy. Our service was quick and always available if we needed to something. The food was very good, as a chain kind of place I expected the food to be "so-so", but it was very good. Great selection for every taste. I am a vegetarian and my friend isn't, and we both found yummies to eat. We had a great time!
We chose Crossroads because we were going to go to a concert at HOB. I made reservations for 7pm. Concert started at 8:30. We were sat right away. But our server, Britney, was also sat 3 other tables at the same time. We placed a drink & appetizer order with her. Drinks came out right away. Our appetizer of spinach artichoke dip came out at 7:50. 45 minutes after ordering it. The table next to us (that was sat the same time as us) got their appetizers & entree in the time it took to get our dip. A table that was sat 5 minutes after us got their food before we got our appetizer. Our dining experience was not Britney's fault. Management/hostess quadruple sat her. We missed first band. We finished the meal & got check & out the door at 9:15
