The service was slow. It took over 15 minutes just for our server to greet us. I understand he may have been overwhelmed. We weren't upset. And again it could have just not been the best day for him. He seemed exhausted. On the other hand, the food was delicious. We went for brunch. The atmosphere was really nice and spaced out. I felt safe and not on top of people. The menu was very appealing as were the beverages. There was also a live musician there. She was pretty good.

Great food and music. The staff seemed to be quite a bit overwhelmed, maybe they were short staffed that day (it was my first time there, so I don't know if that is typical). But if not, they definitely need to add additional staff because it did affect the service a bit.

We always enjoy coming to House of Blues. A little disappointed that the live music is outside, but I totally understand why that's necessary right now. You can still sit outside and listen to it and order food & drinks. Had to get an extra bowl of gumbo to go because it's so good! We're never disappointed coming to House of Blues. You won't be either.

Outdoor seating with patio heaters and live music. Our waitress Jamie was absolutely outstanding! We had a great night even if some of the food was just okay. The ambiance, happy hour drink specials, and fantastic service made up for it.

I cannot lie, this was my first trip to the HoB to eat, and I really expected it to be just like the food at the Hard Rock. I was completely wrong about that assumption. This was some of the best food we had on our trip to Disney World and Universal Studios. The environment was fantastic for a date night with my wife, and we could look out on the water from the rear dining area and see the town glowing in the night.

I ordered their Bar B Que platter with two different meats, the ribs and the brisket. We are from Texas and are quite acquainted with both of these items regularly. I normally do not even both trying them at other restaurants because they often arrive tough and tasteless.

The Bar B Que at HoB was both delicious and moist. The brisket was tender and cooked to perfection and the ribs were seasoned just right. I was massively surprised and my wife and I had not even been out bar hopping yet. Our server was very personable and quick with requests.

Overall, this was one of the better dining experiences that I had while I was in Orlando, and I will 100% return to any HoB after this as well!

HOB is always a good time. Food was good. Think the server may have been a little overwhelmed with many tables. She was amazingly courteous but absent a good portion of the dinner and it seemed she forgot some of our order. Nonetheless, positive experience overall.

Food was barely only adequate. Monitor drink was good.
Was expecting a much better vibe however between XMas eve and Covid, it was really quiet. Not what you would expect for a Blues bar /restaurant.

Brisket tacos were amazing but brisket nachos Barely got any brisket and I would’ve expected things besides just pickled onions add the cheese. Have had loaded pork Nachos at other restaurants were amazing you need to improve on these.

Celebrating birthday, anniversary and graduation. Never been here. Loved the ambiance. Loved the bbq brisket nachos. Our entree weren’t as spectacular as others have mentioned. Jalapeño Cornbread was dry and crumbly, I had shrimp po boy it’s was ok, my son had ribs & it’s wasn’t falling off the bone as mentioned. My fiancé had andouille with baked beans it’s was ok snd burger my daughter had was ok.
I think maybe do not go during a holiday day as we went Christmas Eve maybe it’s wasn’t the regular chef cooking.

We were served by Mark and also Mike. The service was outstanding, Mark was beyond attentive and I tell you what bottomless means bottomless mimosas. The glass was never empty. I ended up getting some bad news while I was here and I felt like I was around friends. Mark and Mike went over and above with the customer service. I am writing this as I sit in house of blues again today, how could we not come back after yesterday. Please let these two gentleman know how exceptional they are and make sure they get the gratification they deserve. Kindest regards Mark, Evita and Sebastian.
