Unfortunately no. We had a great waiter but were less than impressed with the drinks and food. Next time we attend an event there we will probably eat somewhere else before the show.

Maybe the fact that Friday nights are very busy caused our service to rather slow. We waited 20 minutes before our bar drinks came. Because we made reservations, we were seated rather quickly. Food was good.

House of Blues is not a gourmet restaurant, but the food is consistently extremely good. Always fresh and hot. All staff are always extremely friendly and while they always seem understaffed, somehow drink refills come constantly which blows my mind. Biggest area of improvement needed is they get overloaded on show nights about 90 minutes prior to a show. While the kitchen can cook well, they fall behind from the high number of orders. Just leave a little extra time and enjoy the experience. It is a positive one.

It began as soon as we walked through the door, the three people in front didn't seem to know what was going on. Then we were seated right next to someone eating alone. Those tables were super close and yet there were a lot of other available tables. We constantly had to chase down our waiter to ask him for anything. He seemed to always skip us. The food was ok and quite expensive for the quality. Also they were out of several beers and yet the waiter would take a very long time to let use know. Then we spoke to the manager and all she did was make excuses and really didn't make up for the experience we had. One of orst experiences I've had at any restaurant.

The service was extremely poor. We had to continually ask for utensils, condiments, sides that were requested to be with our food order. Once we received our meals, our server never came back to ask how everything was or refill our drinks. Overall, the experience was not the best after dining at HOB more than a few times. I feel like there is no sense of urgency and a lack of caring for the customer from the servers.

We were seated waited 30 minutes and had to track down a waiter to wait on us. Then after placing our order took a long time for the food to come.When the food came I got a New York strip it was overpriced,steak was full of fat and overcooked. Then when we showed our coupon for 15% off at checkout we did not receive it. Will definitely go back to the house of blues for a concert but never to the restaurant again

Yes! We went on a Thursday night before the show. The shrimp and grits were the best I've had. They cook the grits then let them cool and cut them in a "cake" then griddle it. Super good not soupy at all. My friend got their Mardi Gras chicken sandwich special with fries. They fries were awesome. They stacked them like a little log cabin!

We typically go to HOB restaraunt before going upstairs to the concert that evening. I had gotten two $50 dinner vouchers with pass the line early entry, so we had at least $100.00 to spend on dinner. That's easy to do if you have a few drinks too. I had the Voodoo sprimp appetizer, then shrimp and grits for an entree. Both were great. My wife had a wedge salad then the NewYork Stip steak for an entree. She was disappointed in the steak. She said it was full of gristle. I think over all HOB is great. Our server was excellent and very attentive. Although the steak was sub par this go around, we will continue to go here.

I usually enjoy my visit to House of Blues but this past Monday service was horrible and it wasn’t the bar tenders fought! There were no service personnel in sight and the two hostesses basically ignored us. It took almost 50 minute for food to come and me person in our party changed his order to go because we only had an hour for lunch but had been there an hour and twenty minutes.

Had dinner prior to a show. Juicy Lucy with no bun. Awesome. It came with fries I didn’t touch. Forgot to ask for a Keto substitute. Had a guy playing great classic rock on an acoustic. He had a great voice and made for great entertainment. We had a couple of good bourbon drinks. Got to the show and upstairs they had only one bourbon choice. I’ll Have plenty of drinks at the restaurant next time and just dance during the show.
