We grabbed dinner before the St. Vincent show upstairs and had a great time. The shrimp & grits were pretty tasty (although way too small for the price), and our group really enjoyed the open mic night. One of our guests was in a wheelchair — the staff was super accommodating, and it was easy to get her around. Service was a bit slow, which made us a little late for the concert, but we still had a blast!

The food was not good. Service was great. The jumbolia was awful it was made with hotdogs or something that tasted the same.

Food was hot and beer was cold. They are a little on the expensive side for what you get but, portions are good and service is friendly. The kitchen miss made our appetizer but the server got it corrected quickly.

My first time at any House of Blues location and I loved it! Great restaurant service...the Shrimp Poor Boy and the Gumbo were awesome...just the fuel I needed to have a wonderful time at the Gin Blossoms concert afterwards! I will definitely be back!

Love going to House of Blues - Houston. My wife can't get enough of their Shrimp and Grits. Everything is always great.

The only thing I don't like is that sometimes the band is too loud and it makes table conversation a bit strained.

We made a reservation. Showed up on time and still had to wait 15 minutes in the cold even though the place was not full. Food was good but park in is deceptive. You can park in a garage across the street and not use valet. Cover band was awesome but we were told we could listen to Mardi Gras zydeco band and this wasn't the case. The shrimp and grits sauce was the best. Need more grits and the jambalaya. Everything else was average in taste.

I felt like the waiter was trying to rush us even though they had open tables. he brought my check without asking if we wanted another drink...which we did.

In Houston on business, went to visit Foundation Room hoping to hear some live music but no luck. Went next door to eat, sat down quickly, but took me getting up after 20 minutes to ask for a waiter. Manager was cool and comp'd an appetizer. Overall meal was good. Unfortunately, I missed out on any blues this evening.

I had the fried chicken, mashed potatoes and cold slaw. It was the best friend chicken I’d ever eaten. Themsrgsrits was mixed well and delicious. The service was great as well.

We were seated very quickly and the service was good. However, to get the appetizer happy hour specials we had to leave our table and order it from the bar. The queso dip was very thick and chunky. Not smooth and creamy like queso should be. No frozen margaritas. And the happy hour margarita on the rocks must have been made with very cheap tequila because it was not very good. The burger was decent but very few toppings. My wife had the brisket tacos and she was pleased with them. Will probably eat someplace else the next time we go to a show there.

Great food, atmosphere, entertainment, music, friendly and attentive waiters and waitresses! The building has eye catching art throughout which are great use for picture backdrops. The Kitchen area is also entertaining in that you can see the cooks prepare the food while you wait. We did not use the bar, however it is an eye catcher with a large verity of drinks to choose from! This was our first visit but it will not be our last! In the words of our waiter Richard...turn up!
Thank you,
