House of Blues Restaurant & Bar - Houston Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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!
The best thing about the resturant is that it's a short walk to the music venue. The resturant probably wouldn't survive in it's current form without that aid. Service, food, drinks are all OK, but uneven. Sat for a long time before seeing the waitress, after that she was quite attentive. Took a long time to get first round of drinks after order, second round came quickly. Mains came a couple of minutes after appetizer. Some of the food was very good, some mediocre. I guess that's how they roll.
We have attended several concerts in the last year and decided to reserve a table to grab a bite and drinks before show. We ordered drinks, two apps and two burgers for 6 people that took forever to get. And, the server knew we were there for a concert. I don’t anticipate eating here again, plus drinks are way over priced. I understand at a concert event, but not in the main dining area.
As for the concert, this is the second time we’ve seen Eli Young Band and the base over powered everything.
I drove in with my husband from Austin to see the Eli Young Band and brought my sister and her husband from Conroe. We ordered the family style bar-b-que which was really good. We are all trying to eat as Atkins as possible, no or few carbs and this was the ticket for sure. Aside from the brisket, pulled pork, smoked chicken and sausage the sides were cold slaw and baked beans. Fed 4 adults
We made dinner reservations because we had tickets to see a concert at HoB. While our experience with the restaurant was good, I kept asking each person I came in contact with to make sure they had ADA accommodations for my husband. I was assured the venue had accommodations. We finished our dinner, went to the concert, and the venue refused to accommodate my husband. I am very disappointed. We did not get to see The Toadies and our tickets went unused because HoB would not provide ADA accommodations. I purchased my tickets first hand through Live nation. $160 wasted.
We tried to order a Blue Moon on draft and we’re told they were out of it. We then tried to order a strawberry margarita and were told they were out of strawberry. Once we found drinks we could actually get, our experience was great!
Food was good and the staff were very attentive.
Omg I loved it. I'd never been before and was glad I made the reservation. The house was packed but we were seated right away even tho we were early (I heard others being told there was a 45 min wait if u didn't have a reservation). I went for a concert and enjoyed my entire experience. The food and drinks were really good not at all over priced. I'll definitely be back.
While attending a conference, we set our dinner reservation for 7pm yet arriving early, the hostess was able to seat us quickly. I ordered the house recommended brisket plate. The meat serving was generous and was served with BBQ beans, slaw, butter pickles and cornbread. The brisket was very tender but had an odd texture- a bit mushy. My husband had the pulled pork plate and seemed to enjoy it more than I did mine.
We came here for dinner at 6 pm before going to the concert upstairs. There were a lot of people since it was after the Astro parade but we were seated right away since we made reservation. We had to wait before getting our drink and food but it was acceptable since the restaurant was really busy. The waiter got one of our order wrong but they immediately offered the wrong dish fir free and the right one was brought up very quickly afterward. We ordered the tacos with brisket and it was delicious and seems healthier than many of the other choices of food on the menu! We also got to try the brisket hamburger with fries, which was the wrong dish that they offered for free, it was also very good. We also got the waffle fried chicken skewer and drinks for a happy hour price so the bill was pretty low too :) The noise level was acceptable despite the fact that the restaurant was packed and the service was exceptional. Definitely will come back and recommend to others!
