The service was excellent. Price was about what I expected for Disney. Shrimp and grits was good but not the best I've had. Presentation was very nice.

The restaurant is always great. Food is always good. Menu kind of got smaller and the Beer selection, especially Specialty beers seemed kind of thin. A larger local/ regional selection would be great. Menu also seems to be getting pricer and portions smaller. The HOB Live Venue now offers more of what me and my fellow concert goers are looking for in a quick bite so we may start eating there in the future if the trend continues.

The restaurant was busy on a Saturday evening and we had a reservation! We were seated with in 5 minutes and had our dinner on the table within 20. Waiter was the best, so fast and friendly. We explained that we were going to a show and he made it go quick. Food was great. Everything was perfect!

I’m very disappointed in the menu change. No turkey burger and not even a side salad. It’s ok to add things to a menu but it stinks when you take them away. I had the shrimp po boy and didn’t like the bread. It was thicker than traditional po boy bread and had no flavor. I wouldn’t have it again.

This was my family’s second visit to this location. We made reservations but was 10 minutes late. The hostess was gracious and told us no worries. We only waited 5 minutes to be seated. The food was amazing and our server, Calvin was the best. He was wonderful and very funny. He took very good care of us. We most definitely will be back.

Had a great waiter

We had a black male server Friday night. He was exceptional - great server, fun, and the type of waiter u want before you go into a concert-

Did not get his name but we were seated in front of the stage in a group of 6 guys. Between the bar and the stage on the floor-

Service was outstanding. Our waiter Matt was great. He made spot on predictions for both the appetizer and meals. The food was excellent as well. All seven in my party enjoyed their meals. We would go back whenever given the opportunity again.

food needs a little love...some things were good others were soso...the one thing that really bothered me was the price for some things....one was the price for a beer... to high.. also how could you not invest getting in draft beer? the other is what you charge for a kids hotdog...that is a bit of a joke...

I booked the House of Blues to celebrate my birthday with my parents, and we had a wonderful visit. Our server Jean-Paul was excellent! I ordered the salmon entree, and it was fabulous! We enjoyed the live music performed outside, and also the atmosphere inside. Thanks also for the free birthday ice cream. :)

We were there for a HOB concert and wanted to take advantage of "Pass the Line" allowing us early entry into the show. We were short on time and our waitress went out of her way to make sure we got our food and check to make the early entry time. Food was very good. Outstanding experience!

What can I say, it was meh. The waitress and staff was great, it was the rest that kinda fell flat. Seated next to 2 birthday parties, one was a group of 10-12 year old girls with their cell phones out, a headache right out of the box. The food was like an overpriced Chili's. My order was rubbery and my wife's dinner was bland. Been there before, now things have changed, afraid not for the better. Maybe we ordered wrong, but for $30 for a dish, you expect something "good." The experience is more for tourists it seems like. So, what we took from this is, the staff is great, super nice and friendly, it's the atmosphere and menu that needs tweaking.
