Our food was served lukewarm and not hot very disappointing server and service was good although he tried to push too often extra money options drinks from the bar also came slowly but it was our first time to Houston’s house of blues we plan on giving it a second shot they always say don’t judge a book by its cover so we will return for one more effort I hope it turns out

This was a birthday celebration for dinner and the concert following. The waiter was Charming and made sure I got my $12 drink he suggested . . . then I didn't see him until I flagged him down to request the check. My food was brought to me by a non-waiter and arrived cold; from the opposite direction of the kitchen. I believe another table probably refused it ( I should have). The tray looked like little food was dabbed across it. I ordered the big barbecue plate and the plate was big all right. The plate consisted of a separate ceramic dish containing half a cup of COLD thick BBQ pork and beans, a pile of brisket (about a quarter pound), a square of cornbread and a separate ceramic dish containing half a cup of coleslaw. Needless to say, I was disappointed in the service and the food and I will not choose the House of Blues restaurant to eat again.

This was beautiful inside. The local at work on the walls is fabulous. The menu was sticky. My drink was terrible. My partner liked his. We left bc the food coming out around us didn't like special. The wait staff was great. Raquel was super sweet. She apologies and gave me a free appetizer for my next visit. I told her it wasn't her fault I thought the restaurant would have been better.

Staff started with trying to sit us by kitchen area. (That's a NO)
Wait staff started great. But got less visible as night progressed.
Food came out cold after seeing it sit under heat lamp for 15 mins.
Manager came and did make amends , which is very good. He seemed genuinely displeased for the poor service. Kudos to him.
Would still go back and try again !

Perfect place to spend time before the show.
You’ll be there on time, have the chance to eat and have some drinks before you get in to the concert, all in the same place.
Wait team at the restaurant is great and food enjoyable.
Good experience overall.

Went for dinner/drinks before the Steel Panther concert. Service was excellent from Kirk. However the quality of the drinks for the price was disappointing. Even after speaking to manager who validated their quality by stating that they were made to “spec” the drinks here continue to have a reputation of being too pricey for what you get. Otherwise we had a great time and enjoyed the atmosphere and live music. Food was ok but the atmosphere is more of what you go to HOB restaurant for.

Was running late and called to tell them if it was okay and they said that it was fine. Got there and sat down quickly but after that waited 15 mins for the waiter to come see us to give drink orders, and looking around restaurant, wasn’t that crowded. I ended up getting up and going to hostess table to ask for our waiter and he eventually came. After that things got better, he was attentive and the food was good, was expecting more options on food choices but for what I decided to get, was pretty good. Just a simple burger. The manager of the restaurant was walking around and came to our table to see how everything was going and I appreciated that! Me and my dad were eating here before attending the show that night and overall experience was pretty good!

First time dining here, my Husband and I LOVED IT! We made reservations prior, walked in and decided to dine at the bar. The bartender suggested the Hurricane. And my goodness...it was de-lic-ious! My Husband ordered the Nashville Wings...undeterred by the batenders "warning" of level of spice. And I ordered the cajun pasta subbing the chicken for shrimp. At first bite of the wings my Husband's response was "oh yeah these are spicy." By the 5th wing that was an understatement! He absolutely could not finish the wings, but kept saying the flavor was so good! My pasta was lacking flavor, so I squeezed a few lemons over the top. That gave it a little zing and I cleaned my bowl. When I hear "cajun" anything I automatically think fool of flavor and spices. This pasta didn't meet those standards. However, it was prepared to perfection. The fetuccine noodles were cooked aldenté and the shrimp was perfection. So, i had no problem squeezing my lemons and finishing my dish. Two hurricanes a piece later...we were stuffed! Needless to say we will be back to try more.

Thanks for a fun evening of great music, from the La Raza Connection band, delicious food, and dessert. I have been to shows and dining upstairs, however taking in the band, bar and restaurant on the street level is a first. It was awesome! Everyone in my party, and the restaurant, really enjoyed themselves! The food and music are crucial to having a great time, and this experience did not disappoint. I can’t wait to come back!

From the hostess, to the Jazz band, our server, and manager — the service was excellent at House of Blues. The food was also good and I really appreciated the bottomless mimosas. It was a chill and good vibe spot. Bring the same band back they were friendly and played really well!

The decoration and people where great. However, there really is no variety on the menu and the good was not worth the price. The steak was good. The mashed potatoe portion was small cold lumpyand lacked inn any real flavor. There so called salad was a small portion of leaves with thick slices of smelly cheese. The key like pie wss very sweet the cookie skillet the teenagers loved.

This was our first dining experience as well as tickets to Beth Hart. The food and service was excellent and “Babs” our waitress was spot on! The manager also stopped by a couple of times to ensure that the food and service was good. Everyone was great! We throughly enjoyed our date night! Beth Hart was good too!
