Got complimentary tickets for a music show. Had fun, but standing room only was not worth the free ticket. I liked the brisket nachos, but the gumbo was just "ok". Will try something different next visit. Liked the band playing on the stage in the main restaurant area when arrived. Would recommend extending Happy Hour to at least 7p.

It had been a while since we went to the House of Blues so I suggested we revisit it again. I remembered they had these awesome pulled pork sliders on the menu previously so I opted for their pulled pork sandwich which was mediocre; the pork had no flavor and they really should consider going with a Hawaiian sweet roll instead of a boring white roll. My husband had the jambalaya, he said it was very good. Our server that evening was terrible. If it wasn't for the manager who oversaw the entire floor, we would never have had our drinks or food brought to us. The entertainment was also mediocre-at-best. This is merely a guess but I think they're Under New Management. With all the dining available to us in Houston it's really sad that I will not return to this restaurant.

2nd time to House of Blues, not such a great experience around. Leaking a/c vent, received a few drops, did mention to waiter. The whole time did not get offer another glass of tea, waiter was not very attended to us even though there may had been another 3/4 tables that arrived after we were there. No tartar sauce available. Maybe being a Monday, the delivery truck had not arrive yet. 6 of us in the group. Thank you

I was a little disappointed in this visit. We had brunch on Saturday morning. We were in town for our 27th anniversary and the reason we chose the HoB for brunch was to enjoy the live music. We arrived at 11am and left at 1pm and the band hadn’t started playing yet. That was definitely a drag as well as the californicated straws.

My moms family are from Louisiana and I ordered the Shrimp and Grits, just to see what it was all about.

I was a bit surprised that with a reservation made days in advance and plenty of open tables, we (2 people) were seated right next to the open kitchen. So it was busy (staff) and noisy around us.

That said, our food was excellent and our waiter did a good job and was personable. I would recommend this restaurant.
