Great service. Awesome live music. Food was a bit pricey, but it's downtown dinner, so what can you do. Food was pretty good.

Food was great, service was great, and you can hear, the only downside is it is expensive. Top notch. Not much in the way of vegetarian options.

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

Disappointed with my visit. Music for the brunch started an 1 hr later than the time posted. Brunch menu does not include items for vegans/veterinarians. Service was slow; not busy but it took a long time for food to come out. Discussed with manager who did compensate us.

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 friends and I went for our first time together and the atmosphere of the place was the BEST! We loved the live music, the drinks, and the servers! My moms family are from Louisiana and I ordered the Shrimp and Grits, just to see what it was all about. Oh I was shocked (in a good way of course) 😳😳😳😳 I dreamed about the Shrimp and Grits the NEXT DAY!!!! We are planning to go back again! ❤️

We enjoyed the restaurant. We ordered the pull pork nachos that were really delicious. The service was good. My wife ordered the impossible burger and her only complaint was that it was too thin. She was used to getting a thicker piece at other restaurants. Good spot. No complaints here.

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.

I was expecting the average, run-of-the-mill burger & chicken tenders menu but was pleasantly surprised with the variety of "foodie" choices available. We started with Hound Dog mules which were tasty and refreshing. We had a hard time deciding on food fare but when the food arrived it was pretty enough to post on FB (but I didn't because I rag on those that do 😄) and when we took our first bites, we just looked at each other in disbelief. I ordered the Voodoo Shrimp served over jalapeno cornbread and I'm pretty sure I sounded like Homer Simpson does when salivating over donuts. My sister ordered the Steak salad which is misleading because it's more of a deconstructed salad. The roasted veggies were farmers market quality and the chimichurri sauce on top of the steak was excellent. The only down side was we had to wait a while for our check but in the servers defense, he had to split the bill up of a table who had at least 7 couples.🙄🙄
Needless to say, we will definitely fine there again. 👍👍👍👍

Though our server was as attentive as could be considering he got slammed with a large party as well as our table of 3 we found the food to be just mediocre. Wedge salad was not even close , the burger was not even accompanied with any condiments and the steak salad had extremely unroasted roasted veggies. The appetizer was the best thing we ordered. The management did comp the salad
