    I went to hear the artist Martell Lacey performing live music. The show was amazing and the restaurant was energetic! We ordered some shrimp dish that was in a grave served with cornbread. It was mediocre. The Brussel sprouts were cooked perfectly but almost to sweet for me and the Mac and cheese had to be Kraft and it was cold when it was served. Our server however was not attentive AT ALL! We continued to have to ask for small things such as silverware, salt and pepper and water. After eating, the dirty dishes and utensils were left on our table for the remainder of the show about 2 hours. We had to ask other servers for things as well because we couldn’t find her for extensive periods of time! Overall I’ll go back and try some other menu items. The prices were def reasonable as well!

    We really enjoyed our dinner at House of Blues. Our server, (Shirelle - not sure of spelling), was very helpful, gracious and professional. The food was good and came out quickly. The band that was playing a live event in the dining area that night was excellent (The Sundogs). The restaurant was not overly crowded and we were seated quickly. We are from out of town and overall we had a great dining experience.

    The steak with brussels sprouts was excellent. The DJ set a great mood and wasn't too loud for conversation. This is a good place for pre-concert dinner.

    TL;DR Stick to the basics like burgers and salads. The salad with grilled salmon was delicious. Perfect amount of dressing and it was a good piece of fish. The ribeye was tough and chewy. The jambalaya roux was tomato based which made it taste like tomato rice. The gumbo was too watery. Our server was excellent and attentive and we never waited to order or get another round. The band was good and played a wide variety.

    Going to a concert at HoB so decided to eat dinner here pre-show. It was all great but have to point out the Shrimp and Grits are to die for. The only issue was Pepsi. Hate Pepsi.

    We went to the House Of Blues restaurant for a pre-concert meal before the show. Ford was great, location was convenient, and they had a high school orchestra performing on the stage of the restaurant. Enjoyed the evening. Valet parking was fast and easy.

    Went to hear a band play at the restaurant. Food and drinks were great! Service was a little slow and the waitress never asked us if we wanted drink refills. I think she was annoyed that we stayed to listen to the music and didn’t leave as soon as our check was paid. Overall this is a great venue and I would go back again.

    Your establishment was nothing short of spectacular. Brandy and Ashley were incredible to deal with and really made our stay the first night so comfortable. To prove it we came back two more times. The variety of the blues and R&B was also great. We hail from Canada and have absolutely no problem recommending your night club to anyone who would be going to Houston. Hopefully we will get the opportunity to visit again. Keep up the good work. Also, the atmosphere was far out! Cheers Paul and Cindy

    We had bought tickets to a show, paid for a VIP package, and had dinner reservations. The hostess didn't know anything about the VIP package that said to meet in the main lobby. The electronic tickets did not work, and while we had started at the box office, we were sent back to the box office to have tickets printed. The show was not in the main dining room. The food was expensive and subpar; ribs were tough and very little sauce.
