Tourists trap, can't see performers from most of the tables. Food is average at best

Good food but they got our order wrong , so one of us ate while the other waited.
Seated us at a table where we were bumped into by staff and patrons. There was a pillar which prevented the poor staff from getting to tables. We had to ask to be moved, after we were splashed by someone’s drink.

Our server, Kris, was awesome. It was our 10th anniversary and our first trip to New Orleans and House of Blues. Kris recommended dishes to us and they were awesome. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you!!

Had dinner before a show at HOB, and really enjoyed it. Made reservations for supper so we could be finished before the show. Two hours was perfect timing, because it gave us time to relax before the show. The food was awesome!!

Pleasantly impressed! Wasn’t sure if a chain restaurant would be great compared to original New Orleans restaurants, but The House of a blues New Orleans was fantastic. Great food and great service.

The menu on their website looks good- it was also recommended for entertainment so, we thought we would try it.
Upon arriving it took forever to be seated - then the hostess called me ( on my cell) after she seated us and reported that we did not show for our reservation. They had a special menu because it was the first night before Mardi Gras (which was not posted on their site) so, there was really nothing on the menu I could eat.
I was with 2 other people and between the 3 of us we ordered the Mardi gras fries, the vegetable muffaleta, a salad and jumbalaja.
The food was terrible - I did not eat any of the vegetable muffaleta - it was pretty much just a few pieces of vegetables between two inches of bread and more mayo then I have ever seen. The server didn't once ask if anything was good or when she walked by and saw my whole meal still sitting there ask if it was okay or if there was something wrong.
The couple I was with ate a little bit of their meals to try them and within about 15 minutes of getting my food - we paid the bill and went to another restaurant to eat dinner and missed all the entertainment.
