Fun place - but the food and service were below average.
The food quality was poor. The menu was limited and the service was inconsistent.
Poor service. Made us wait 30 minutes to order food. Would not return.
We went as a family for NYE and wife’s birthday.
It is a nice place. I’d say it is just average for food and drinks. Overall, it’s not a bad place to grab a bite and sit/listen to music. Like a lot of places right now - service was slow and underwhelming. As they got busier, it got slower. If you are looking for a casual bite and aren’t in a hurry - it’s ok. If you want better food, service and a great night out - this didn’t cut it.
Great meal with live music - one of the few places we could get into without a reservation, and we had no regrets. I highly recommend trying the Hurricane here.
Perfectly cooked salmon. Great service- our server Jeremy was very attentive and thoughtful.
Excellent place, great service, good food and huge portions. Nice ambiance, highly recommended.
the food was not good and the service was not great either.
We loved the ambiance and vibes! Good food and good energy. Definitely will return on our next trip.
Food was great and service was friendly and fast, I’d definitely Go again
it was great! will definitely be back! also please do another taylor swift night too! that was amazing!
We were the only diners at 8:15. The menu was limited - just a step above bar food. We shared nachos with pulled pork. The toppings were just that - “toppings”. The chips below the top layers were good but minus any of the toppings. The pulled pork was sweet - likely barbecue sauce. We had separate appetizers, the wings were good (according to hubby) and I had gumbo. The gumbo was edible but not with much seasoning.
I think folks come to The House for music!
It was an awesome night. Great atmosphere, staff is very friendly, food was great, concert was awesome.
The food, drinks and service were exceptional. We were too early for the music.
Awesome service and awesome place. Look forward to going back.
Great po-boy and nice music. Excellent waitress.
Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed our Po'boy! Please come back soon.
Got served pretty quickly and the food was really good.
Thanks! Please come back soon!
The service and food fell well below my expectations. Despite the restaurant not being busy at all, it took 20 mins for the waitress to even to approach the table after we were seated. Parts of the order were also delivered incorrectly.
Food wise - other than the voodoo prawns which were acceptable, the overall quality of food was quite lacking especially for the price.
Fried chicken was great.Service could have been better.
Thanks! So glad you liked our fried chicken!
Enjoyed live entertainment of local musician
Due to getting lost, we were running about an hour late for our reservation. It was no problem for them, we were sat immediately. Not very many full tables for a Saturday night. At first, our server was fine, but after our first round of drinks and food arrived, she was MIA. We needed extra condiments and asked at least 4 people who passed our table, still no condiments. We ordered a second round of drinks and it was brought to is with the check. We still hadn’t seen our server nor received our condiments. We asked 2 different people for a manager, no manager showed up. We had a concert that was about to start, so we tipped $1 and went to the music area.
I hope this was just a bad night and not regular service.
Food was good and plentiful. Will most definitely be back!
Thanks Tyra! Please come back soon!
Excellent server .... had an amazing time!!! Delicious food! Highly recommend. Will come again. We t to the Prince Experience show. Upgraded to VIP foundation room, Comp glass of champagne, and Leadbelly section. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Best time ever!!
Thanks for the positive feedback! Hope to see you again real soon!
I have found myself stopping at House of Blues for several years now when in New Orleans, to enjoy their honey-Fried Chicken...it is delicious! The slaw is good, the cornbread average, but I don't come for the sides. Service excellent, quite a hopping place!
Thanks for the 5 star review! Please come back soon.
Amazing time with family
The food was delicious. The local band made dinner even better.
Thanks Casey! We appreciate the positive feedback!
Great service as well as food. Alexis our waitress gave us great ideas for food choices and was super all evening. Management came by also to greet us and make sure our food and service was to our liking.
Thanks Mitzi! We will share your comments with Alexis. Please come back soon.
Service was more than awful. We received our drinks after asking 3 times, they finally came when we got our dinner
I was beyond satisfied. I’m bringing my daughter back this weekend!!! Thanks for the wonderful experience.
Thanks for the 5 star review Melissa! See you soon!
To be honest we did not get a chance to enjoy the food but the app made me rate that section, However the place is a nice spot and it has a nice vibe we were given tickets to a burlesque show however the tickets were very misleading we did not have seats in an order to actually sit down we had to pay an additional $35 for the seats so we just stood in the crowd the show was decent and the drinks were somewhat week for $18 a drink.
Love the House of Blues!
Grear food and the personnel was really helpful when we needed something
Thanks Christopher! See you soon!
Quick service and friendly staff. Will be back!
Thanks! See you soon!
I found out through much investigation and time spent on the phone with opentable tonight that this restaurant made a mistake by altering my reservation, and therefore I was unable to use my $100 opentable rewards gift card once the check came (since apparently altering a reservation messes with the associated rewards card). Even though I did everything I was supposed to, and even confirmed my reservation the day of when the restaurant called, someone at the restaurant mistakenly marked us as “no-shows” at first- then later on went back and marked down that we had actually come in...! I am now out over $100 as I was unable to use the rewards card and had to pay the full bill out of pocket. It’s very unfortunate because my mom, aunt, and I rearranged a lot of plans this week just to make this night happen and use my dining rewards at this restaurant. We are only visiting New Orleans for 3 days. The waitstaff and manager just kept coming back to the table saying the rewards card was declined. I have never had a problem using my dining rewards at any other restaurant in the past 5 years. After speaking with the folks at opentable on the phone and finding out it was a mistake the restaurant staff made with altering my reservation, I find the situation even more upsetting. Opentable is unable to issue me a refund (they just reinstated my points) and I am shocked at how unprofessional and unpleasant my experience was at the House of Blues Restaurant. It ruined 3 peoples’ nights. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. Very upsetting experience.
Great music by Cary Hudson. Good service from server John. Good food. Fair price.
Great food and service. We’ll be back
Thanks for the positive feedback!
Best pulled pork sandwich we ever had. No music playing because of the super bowl.
Thanks Merlin! So glad you love our pulled pork sandwich! Please come back soon.
We had great service. Our server, Aspen, was so informative and made great recommendations. She was super polite and really upbeat. Loved her! We ordered the flatbread pizzas and they were delicious. Our margaritas tasted great as well. I'll definitely go again.
Thanks Tracy! We will share your comments with Aspen and we hope to see you soon!
It was not clear that with dinner you could or see a show. But we were able to hear the music. The staff was most attentive.
Thanks for the feedback. Please come back soon!
We made reservations here to celebrate my wife’s 40th birthday. Service was slow, but we don’t blame the waitress, she had a big section and was really nice. The lack of stars is because of the food. Definitely the worst meal we had during our trip. It’s tough to find a bad meal in New Orleans, but we found it here. Food wasn’t terrible, just really mediocre. We expected more from House of Blues and were bummed that my wife’s birthday dinner was less than great.
