The Jambalaya is one of my favorite dishes here. You will never go wrong with that. You have to try the jalapeño cornbread. My picture is also you should try...the Carolina slaw - fries with pulled pork, jalapeños, cheese, and Carolina BBQ sauce.

Tried to order salmon rare and was told by the waiter that the kitchen would not do it and would only serve well done. Perplexing that a kitchen would refuse to cook something like that to order. Anything on a Disney property seems to have its own special definition of customer service (they are oddly authoritarian). On the plus side, the jambalaya and brisket were good, as was the House hurricane, and our waiter was a gent who meant well.

Our waiter was fantastic. The food came out promptly and was delicious! We were pleasantly surprised, because sometimes theme park style dining can be rushed, crowded, slow, and sub par. We will be back.

Not sure what has happened to HOB, but the menu was completely different from what we were used to. Favorite selections were missing (one in particular that my husband, whose 75th b'day was the reason we chose HOB, was the meatloaf and mashed potatoes), and selections available were just not that good. We left feeling as if we would probably not come back, and wishing we had gone with another choice we had which was Paradisio.

Our experience was excellent. In the excitement for Brent Smith and Zach Myers I did not get my server's name but she was great and informative about the venue which we were seeing that night. I plan to come back many more times in the future.

I had the brisket tacos which were delicious. Our server, Heather was the best. She had a great personality and was great at her job. She gave us a lot of helpful information as we were going to the Smith and Myers show that night. I would def eat here again.

 (Tampa)·Dined on December 2, 2017

Four of us had a late lunch prior to a concert later that night. The food was good and reasonable. I had the pulled pork platter that come with slaw, beans, pickles and corn bread. Everything was delicious except the corn bread was a little dry but tasty. The juicy Lucy burger was a hit with 2 of our group. And our son liked his brisket platter. There is a choice of 3-4 bbq sauces on each table. TJ was our server and he was great. Very accommodating and pleasant. Drinks were good and compared to other restaurants in the area the prices were great. Would definitely go back.

We ate here after our Alter Bridge meet and greet at the HOB. The meet and greet made us run an hour late for our reservation but we were able to be seated within 10 minutes. Our food arrived quickly and was very good. I had the Mahi mahi sandwich and my husband had pulled pork. We had plenty of time after eating to go to our car and arrive back at the HOB for the first opening band .

Previously went there and enjoyed the food. Went back and the menu had changed. There are not a lot of vegetarian options. The flat bread was burnt. Even the pesto was crispy. I can't believe the waitress even served it.
Never again.

Calvin, our waiter, was outstanding. He was attentive with being annoying and when I ordered a dish I was not able to eat because it was too spicy, he quickly took care of it got me a dish I was able to eat. I will be asking for him when I go there again next month.
The food was very good and options were huge. Definitely a great experience and will be dining there again.

The restaurant was just ok. Definitely would not go again with my 11 yr old son. A good place for Adults. I called in advance to find out if the 90's show was kid friendly and I was told yes. I paid $30.00 for 2 tickets. IT WAS A BAR!!!! It was not kid friendly at all. There were not kids there. No seats. We left. Total disappointment. I would not recommend going to any show there unless you plan on standing the whole time in a bar atmosphere.

Amazing food with amazing atmosphere. So many conversation starters. Great music also. Be advised when planning, music is outside but with a minimal menu. Amazing menu is inside but again the music is outside. You have to sacrifice one for the other. Otherwise, amazing!
