Five of us converged on the restaurant from different directions for dinner before going to a concert at the attached venue. There was great live music in the bar area to enjoy. We shared the family style fried chicken dinner along with some brisket nachos. Plenty of food, good tasting, drinks were good too. Servers were friendly and attentive. All in all an excellent choice!
Hey Steven! Thank you for the great detailed review! We're so glad you enjoyed the live music and food in our restaurant before the show in our Music Hall! Next time ask about our pass the line incentive that we offer on a show to show basis. We hope to see you soon! Thank you, Alyssa Herek | Restaurant Supervisor
Everything was very nice. The new waitress from Boston was very friendly and efficient! Food was very good! Will definitely come back!
Hey Mark! Thank you for the awesome review. Very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the service and the food. We look forward to seeing you soon! Thank you, Alyssa Herek | Restaurant Supervisor
This my and my fiancé’s first time visiting the HoB and we specifically came for the country brunch. We had a wonderful time listening to the live music and the food was delicious. We had a great server, Ashley, who took great care of us while we were there. We will definitely be coming back for the country brunch and will be brining our friends with us.

Had impossible burgers, definitely on the overcooked side but flavorful AF
Hey there! We're glad you enjoyed the flavor of the impossible burger but apologize that they were a little overcooked. An impossible burger is definitely more enjoyable when it is cooked right. We hope you give us another shot as we continue to learn from guest's experiences. Thank you, Alyssa Herek | Restaurant Supervisor
Talent and service were spectacular. Highly recommend this joint. Almost as good as Dubh Linn Comedy club in Duluth Minnesota.
Hi Mike! Thanks for the great review. We hope to see you back here soon!
Better than my last experience in the same restaurant. Ruby was a great server. Food was good but not outstanding. Totally bummed that I forgot to mention that I had 25% off my meal since I purchased concert tickets :-(
Hi Mike, thank you for your feedback. We are so glad you had a better experience with us. We will continue to improve for the future!
Good service. Reservation ready when we arrived which was great
Hey Tina, thanks for leaving a review! Great to hear that you had good service and that we were able to seat you right away. We hope to see you soon! Brisa Heth | Restaurant Supervisor
Best bread pudding ever!
Our server “CC” was awesome.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review! We're glad had a great experience with CC, she is awesome! The bread pudding is definitely a hit, we actually have a delicious brunch menu item made with it, called Bourbon French Toast. It has some added goodies on top including white chocolate, blazed banana, and salted caramel. Come check it out at Country Brunch Live on Saturday and Sunday from 10am-2pm. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Key Lime pie.
Hey John! Thanks for the review. We are so glad you enjoyed our signature Key Lime Pie! Next time you should try it with a scoop of ice cream. Can't wait too see you again! Cheers! Alyssa Herek | Restaurant Superviso
Wonderful food. Outstanding service. Keeps us coming back!
Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback, we are so happy you enjoyed our food and the service. We hope to serve you again soon! Brisa Heth | Restaurant Supervisor
Had a great girls Sunday brunch there will be back again
Thank you so much for the awesome review! We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed our Country Brunch Live. We hope to see you at one of our upcoming brunches or events here soon! Thank you, Alyssa Herek | Restaurant Supervisor
We had a mixed experience that was overall positive. We showed up at 7pm and immediately told the waitress that we needed to be finished by 8 so that we could see the show right there at the House of Blues. She told us which entrees were quick and which took longer to prepare. We ordered two dinner salads and two mahi burgers. After 30 minutes, the mahi burgers were still not ready. They came at 7:50. We had a couple of bites and left. The waitress was super nice and apologetic. The manager came over and comped the late mahi burgers, which we greatly appreciated. The salads and mahi burgers were high quality and very tasty. The take home message is that we recommend eating at House of Blues, San Diego, but leave yourself more than an hour if you need to make a show there.
Hello, We apologize again about the lateness of the Mahi burgers. It is not our usual practice for food to take so long. We're glad the manager stopped by and helped as much as they could. We hope to see you again soon, and next time, the food will come out much faster. Glad you enjoyed your experience overall though!
Enjoyed country breakfast with live music. Food was greasy and steeped in Southern cooking elements . Maybe a few more basic food options would make this great. Music terrific
Hey Terri, Thank you for joining us for Country Brunch Live! I'm glad you enjoyed the music and we hope you come back and try something else on the menu. We are a made-from-scratch kitchen and offer an a la carte menu so be sure to ask your server about those. Thanks again for your feedback! Alyssa Herek | Restaurant Supervisor
The bread pudding is to die for !!!!
The shrimp appetizer amazing but the gumbo need help !!
We enjoyed it overall
Hey CJ, Thank you for leaving us a positive review! Our Voodoo Shrimp is definitely a House of Blues favorite so we are very glad you enjoyed it. If you liked our bread pudding, check out our new brunch menu which includes Bourbon French Toast, our famous bread pudding served French toast style. We hope to see you again soon! Thank you, Alyssa Herek | Restaurant Supervisor
We went to a concert there so decided to grab dinner there at the same location
Hey! Thank you so much for dining in our restaurant before the concert and leaving us a review! Be sure to check out our web page for more exciting events happening in the future in our restaurant & bar. We hope to see you again soon! Thank you, Alyssa Herek | Restaurant Supervisor
We enjoyed listening to the band while having brunch, we were disappointed that the menu options were so small. Service was slow to start even though several employees were lingering around. Our waitress seemed to be the one working non stop, we couldn't find her for a long period of time. She was a great waitress but said she was alone, though it wasn’t busy. Food tasted great, had steak (allergic to onions so had to go with fries with steak instead of pre-prepared potatoes 🥴) and friend had shrimp n grits, we enjoyed it and SixString Outlaws playing. Suggestion would be to have more options for food items, employees need to help others out when they are alone, not just stand around and watch them be busy. We’ll be back, hope it’s a little better experience next time.
For being the first weekend of the Country brunch it was pretty good. The band was great and the menu was good. I think that with a little feedback and a some practice it will get to be quite good (kitchen wise). The band (sickstrings?) was very good. We enjoyed them a lot.
Happy hour ends at 6pm
Check the live performers board out before going in...was hoping for blues and got 50s swing dancing instead.
Hello, We're sorry we didn't have blues on the night you came! We try to offer a variety of live music to attract and keep different genres of music lovers. But yes please! Next time you come, we have a calendar of all of our events on our website! Hope to see you soon!
Our waitress Ruby was exceptional. High marks to Ruby. I ordered a Cobb salad as a dinner entree. It was only slightly larger than a dinner salad and pricey for the amount of food included. The burgers and the pulled pork sandwich looked good. They were decent portions for the price.
Hi Gerald, thanks for stopping in to dine with us! So happy to hear how great Ruby is, we agree! We're excited to see you next time so you can enjoy some more food and music. Brisa Heth | Restaurant Supervisor
Our family of four went to HoB for a late night dinner, so the place was very slow in terms of the number of diners. The food was good, although not memorable. Unfortunately, they struggled get one of the orders right. The pulled pork came out with no sauce, no slaw and they gave her fries instead of the corn she ordered. After they brought out the bbq sauces and slaw, we were still waiting on the corn for several minutes.
Our waitress was amazing. Great food and drinks.
Hey Jazz! Thank you so much for stopping in for dinner and drinks with us! Glad you enjoyed the service. We look forward to seeing you again soon! Thank you, Alyssa Herek | Restaurant Supervisor
If we had found this place earlier in the week we would have eaten there every night! Good food and a lot of it and good music.
Heidi- Thank you so much for the review! We wish you could have eaten here every night too. Hope to see you again soon. Thanks, Victoria Paccione | Restaurant Supervisor

Damian, Thanks for your review! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us! Our Pass the Line incentive, that allows guests in the restaurant to enjoy early access to certain shows is an amazing bonus. We hope to see you again soon. Thanks, Victoria Paccione | Restaurant Supervisor
Half the group arrived early and they were sat immediately. Of waiter was awesome. Food and drinks were great. I’ve been there a few times before. Always a great time!
Thanks for the amazing review! We hope to see you again soon. Thanks, Victoria Paccione | Restaurant Supervisor
Candace was our server and provided one of the most personable and excellent dining experiences ever. She asked about dining preferences, then after some considerations offered suggestions for each course of the meal - appetizer, entree and dessert. All of which were great choices. Definitely recommend the Voodoo Shrimp. It was very tasty and portion size is great for sharing, although you might be tempted to order one for yourself.
We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your dining experience with us! Candace is a wonderful server and a great asset to our team. Please come back soon and visit us for Happy Hour in our restaurant Tuesday-Sunday from 4PM to 6PM! Thanks, Victoria Paccione Restaurant Supervisor
I was amazed at the portion size. The bread pudding was awesome, but could easily be shared with 1 or 2 others. We went a little early, before the music started. So, it was relatively quiet. Ci Ci was a very good server and had good interaction with our table. I recommend this restaurant in the Gaslamp District of San Diego.
Bill, Thank you for your awesome review! I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit with us. Please come back and visit us soon! Thanks, Victoria Paccione Restaurant Supervisor
Wonderful Food, Excellent Atmosphere, We used the outdoor dining. Very friendly staff. Will come here again.
I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit with us. Please come back and visit us soon! Thanks, Victoria Paccione Restaurant Supervisor
Our Server Brisa, was super fun and friendly and since it was our first time we asked about where to go for the show we had tickets to after dinner. Brisa introduced us to Denise and she gave us a tour of the club personally. It was great never had such wonderful service. The food and drinks were delicious, the fries with BBQ brisket on top was crazy good but the bread pudding was so our of this world good we had to order a 2nd one. The sound for the show was awesome, I will be back in 2 weeks for another and dinner and drinks too.
Shaunna, Thanks so much for your wonderful review. Denise and Brisa are Rock Stars and we are lucky to have them! We look forward to making your next visit another memorable experience. Thanks! Victoria Paccione
Order barbecue platter for 4 food was lukewarm and mac and cheese was missing the cheese. Bread pudding was not warm enough to melt the butter on the top and the middle was cold.
We thought it was going to be an American a Band and it was mostly 70's oldies which was fine but the food was horrible. The waitress was wonderful though and they were very fair about us not eating one of the entrees and simply nibbling at the other. In their defense, I am a foodie, and so was not aware this is such a middle of the road fare. But the service and management was as good as it gets.
Had a great time prior to and during the concert. Food, drink and music.
Hi John - I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit with us. Please come back and visit us soon! Thanks, Victoria Paccione Restaurant Supervisor
We had a nice evening. The band in the bar was excellent. My wife really enjoyed her flat bread. I got the fried chicken... Not bad, but not epic either. My salad had a twist tie in it... It happens.
Jambalaya was very good but a wedge salad served with Romaine, minimal bacon and minimal blue cheese was very disappointing!
Stick with the Southern food?
Our server was knowledgable and gave some great info the artwork is really cool and the gift shop had some good souvenirs they have items that help charities which was really neat to learn about and contribute to I have never had a bad experience here the Carolina mess was delicious and the dark knight super tasty loved the apple chunks
Glad to hear you enjoyed your time with us! We hope to see you again soon.
Parking structure for Procopio's building was advertising for House of Blues but they would not validate and was not associated. Cost me $25 to park downtown.
Cobb salad was a+. Nachos were killer. Server was super cool.
Glad to hear you enjoyed your time with us! Hope to see you again soon!
