How can you charge extra to put shrimp in jambalaya?!? A core ingredient. Food was mediocre.

Awesome vibe and tasty food... family friendly... affordable prices for the food and beverages... reservation is highly recommended but not a big deal if you just pop in. Definitely check out the concert venue at the restaurant... awesome ambiance and acoustics in an intimate smoke free setting.

We were in Florida for 2 weeks. This was by far the best meal of our holiday. Was so good the first time, we booked and came back again. Staff were friendly and efficient. Atmosphere was great and food was delicious! Would recommend to anyone going to Orlando

Had pre show dinner here. I had a harvest salad and added shrimp. Literally 4 small shrimp for $10 extra. Prices are insane. Food mediocre. Server was great.

Honestly pretty disappointed in the quality and taste of the food and cocktails. Service was excellent and our waitress was extremely nice. But for over $150 one would think the food would be pretty worthwhile. Lacking in flavor and the cocktails were burnt and watery.

Went for our anniversary and indicated it was a special date in my reservation. They put us behind the wall that's behind the entertainer....couldn't see a thing...drove 2 his for this miserable experience. Oh and the ketchup bottle was empty...waited until my fries were cold until the waitress showed up.

Waiter said kitchen was having issues and not expecting the crowd. It was a busy Friday night with a concert. Can’t imagine how they wouldn’t expect it to be busy. It took her an hour to get our meals - nachos and hamburgers. Drinks took 20 minutes. Chose to eat here to get early access to concert. Took so long, we were at the back of the early entrance line. Disappointing.

Worst meal we have had in Florida. We waited 40 minutes for our first drink to arrive. Two of our table of 6 had no cutlery for our meal (one of which was freezing cold dry prawns served on dried out bread) and nobody arrived to ask how the food was or if we wanted anything else and when trying to flag someone down we were ignored.

We let our serving waiter know that we were not satisfied with our meal hence why we had returned almost full plates...this was met with the most rude attitude from the waiter who said we should have asked for cutlery if we wanted some......and his response to telling him the food was cold and bland was "oh well".

we have eaten in so many nice restaurants in Disney springs.... disappointed and will not return.

We ordered the brisket nachos. They were full of processed cheese and not fresh tasting. Also the shrimp tacos were full of frozen not fresh shrimp. I thought it would have been better than the usual food at Disney but it was not. We paid over thirty dollars for a very processed not fresh meal.

We’ve been going to House of Blues for years. Always a good time. The food is exceptional for this bar/club restaurant. The corn bread with maple butter is a must. The voodoo shrimp is the best and the barbecue platter is fantastic for 3 adult people (not 4) as stated on menu unless someone has a smaller appetite. Always check to see if there’s a concert going on because the reservations could get tight....Also as a HINT
Do not use the Disney dining reservation line if your staying at Disney they charge your credit card in advance . Go through OPEN TABLE for a cancelable reservation.

Place was very clean and nice. Noise level was pretty high and a bit too much. I would have liked to have been able to hear the music playing outside more rather than the patron noise on top of the music playing on top of the barely audible music from outside. The restaurant was also very chilly despite it being very comfortable outside they had ac running on full. Food was good, but also cooled down very quickly. Service was good, but nothing stand-out or special.

Great place to see a show! Three of us ate dinner before a show on a Monday night. The food was okay and my Moscow Mule was so terrible I couldn't finish it. Way overpriced for the quality of both food and beverage. Our server was great until it came to pay. He offered us a V.I.P pass to the front of line but did not give us the 20% off for showing him my ticket. We asked to split the bill in half and told us we would have to tip more or loose our V.I.P. pass. The opening band had already started and the line to get in way gone before we even got our drinks. We could see it through the window. We refused the offer he gave us and from then on it was all he could do to get us out of there. My advice; Go to shows at HOB. Maybe just enjoy a beer or glass of wine. At the bar and find your food elsewhere.

Food is overly priced. Very skimpy with the brisket on the nachos. I was disappointed that the live music in the restaurant was not the blues! I was very disappointed that I was told that the restaurant does not sing happy birthday to a customer nor even say happy birthday over the microphone! I made reservations specifically for my boy friend's birthday to enjoy bbq food and blues music, which did not happen!

What a fabulous brunch! We really enjoyed listening to the toe tapping gumbo boogie music! The service was excellent as they continually kept the drinks fresh and the table clear of plates as we helped ourselves to the delightful choices at brunch.- everything from carved roast beef and made-to-order omelettes, and cajun specialty dishes, as well as you peel em shrimp, salads and delectable desserts. Worth the trip!
