Fun place to eat before a show. Good service, good food, fun atmosphere.
The food was not good at all. I was excited to eat there. Have to be honest I didnt eat it and it was really expensive. Service was super slow and they had plenty of staff. It was a bummer. I wish they would have offered us a discount on food , as I left entire plate and told the waitress. My husband and I are typically easy to please. This really was ashame.
We had a great server, and they took it upon themselves to move us to an area that wouldn't be as noisy as where they originally wee going to seat us. We could hear each other, so we had good conversation over good food. A very nice evening.
Excellent service from Ryan. He made our evening.
First time back since COVID. They had just opened this week. We knew we might be in trouble when the hostess began with an apology before she even seated us. Our food was decent, other dishes that came out looked good. We did not wait a terribly long time for food. Seems like the kitchen was in order. BUT the service was about rock-bottom. They were trying hard, but clearly nobody had any experience serving. We ordered 2 identical drinks, received one. Had to ask twice and eventually go to the bar for the second one. The bar was completely backed up with drinks lining the counter. Our server (one of two that kept coming by to see what we were still waiting for) delivered our appetizer (cold) and one main dish together. She left and didn't come back. We had no utensils. We flagged down a random employee and asked for utensils. She never did bring us any water (which we asked for). My partner ate the appetizer while I ate my main course so it wouldn't get cold. Finally we got our server's attention and told her we never got our second main dish. Meanwhile, 2 servers were working our area and delivering the wrong drinks to the wrong tables. Other customers were annoyed because they couldn't get their check. The manager came out to converse with several tables about issues. CONCLUSION: It was mass chaos. The food was OK. Salmon was over cooked, drinks weak. Lots of apologies and running around in confusion. I hope they get it together soon. I would give them a month and try again.
This was a terrible experience, from start to finish. We waited almost 15 minutes to get our drink order taken and over an hour to get our food.
I think they had one server for the entire restaurant.
The food was alright, but by the time it arrived the experience was ruined.
I do not recommend.
Ryan is the best server ever... food was amazing and reasonably priced.
good place, with a beautiful atmosphere. live music and good american food.
Hi there, Thank you for the great review! We are so glad you enjoyed all that our Restaurant & Bar has to offer!
Great food. Nice waitress. Great beer. Giant bread pudding. Would go back. Wish there had been live music while we were there but that’s ok.
Hi there, Thank you for the awesome review! For your next visit, feel free to check out our event calendar on the House of Blues San Diego website to see when we will be having live music on the Salvation Stage. Cheers!
I attended the country brunch and it was so cute. I went with my girl friend from work and we had so much fun. The service was awesome and we were up close and personal with the band. I got to meet them and even met a few regulars that go to that event often. I would recommend for anyone of any age.
Hi there, Thank you for the awesome review! So glad you enjoyed our brunch menu and the live country music offered at Country Brunch Live!
Great food and great service. Perfect dinner option!
Hi Amber, Thank you for the 5-star review! So glad you enjoyed your experience in our Restaurant & Bar!
The service was superb and happy hour was a great value. Our dinners were just okay - I would not order the cobb salad again as it was basically lettuce with some bacon bits and eggs, but my husband's cajun pasta had good flavor. Also, the Pass the Line was a great selling point.
Hi there, Thank you for the great review! We are so glad you enjoyed your dining experience in our Restaurant & Bar and took advantage of our Pass The Line offer!
Just OK. Nothing special as far as a Brunch menu is concerned. Huge need for the menu to be reworked. The music for Brunch was outstanding and we would return just for the music and "Bottomless Bloody Marys"
Hi Rick, Thank you for your review! We truly appreciate your feedback.
Fun time. Food was okay. Took forever to order entrees. Other than that it was fun
The nachos were delicious! The service was great!
Awesome dinner. Everyone was super friendly. Hostess was great. Samantha our sever was excellent and we tipped her well. Our dinner was well prepared, presented well and tasted great. My wife and I enjoyed our anniversary and Black Label Society. Will come back again.
Wanted to take my wife to the legendary HOB -San Diego for the experience. I was there last in 2011 or 2012 to see Hollywood Undead play.
This time I got to actually sit down and enjoy the experience. The nachos were worth it!
Food was good. Had chicken tacos, champagne salad with pecans, and a side of brussel sprouts. The sprouts were o die for and paired great with the salad. Too bad we didn't have an interesting glass of white wine with it like a Gewurtzaminer.
Everyone enjoyed their entrees which included jambalaya, shrimp 'n grits, baby back ribs, and the shrimp and crab risotto. The service was excellent. The other two couples hadn't been there before and said that they would like to come again.
Fun on Fat Tuesday. Loud because of live band. Food and drinks were okay. Overall decent place for Happy Hour.
Everything was great! Food, drinks, and entertainment.... I will most definitely return!!!!
The meet is really dry and not really good. Although the service and music are fine.
great place, good food and fantastic music, all you need for a perfect evening
Hi Michael, Thanks for the awesome review! We hope to see you back here soon!
Go times, great venue, service & food recommend to al locals from San Diego and visitors
Tasty southern style food. Service was great. Prices were moderate.
We ate first and then saw a comedy show. The food was absolutely delicious! The venue was excellent the door guys were helpful and the show was amazing! We had a wonderful time from start to finish!
Hi there, we are so glad you had a great time at our venue. We hope to see you back here soon!
Our hostess greeted us and asked us if this was our first visit and was extremely helpful in explaining how dinner before the show worked. Our server Gabby was just awesome and did not rush us. Her food recommendations were spot on perfect. The meals were great. No hesitation to go back next time we're in San Diego.
Hi Johnny, Thank you for the great review! We are so glad you enjoyed your dining experience with us! Can't wait to have you back next time you are in town!
We had a great time. Would definitely return and have already recommended to friends. The Country brunch was great.
Awesome! Thank you for taking the time to send us a review. We love Country Brunch Live too!
Good way better than what we had expected. Our server was nice and friendly, however the hostess was clueless.
Thank you for your review. Glad to hear the server was great, but we will follow up with the host staff who worked that day for sure. Hope to see you again soon!
We went on Valentine's Day before a concert at the House of Blues. We were seated on time and everything was served in a timely fashion. We had the Salmon, Mac and Cheese with Chicken and the Shrimp Po Boy. All of us said the food was really good. Drinks were great too.
Thank you so much for the review! Glad to hear you had a great visit with us, especially on Valentine's Day. Come back again soon!
Excellent food and a fun atmosphere. Our waiter was exceptional and even though the night was very busy he met our every need in a timely manner.
That's so great to hear that you had fun in here and were well taken care of. Can't wait to have you back!
I was very dissapointed that they took the item I like to order off the menue.
We're so sorry we took off one of your favorite meals! We try to keep the menu fresh and not dull, so we may bring back old favorites, or you may find a new one! Hope to see you back soon!
The waitress got all three orders wrong. We were in a rush so we didn’t have much time to get it fixed. What we ended up eating was alright but the experience would have been better if we had got what we wanted.
THEIR FOOD IS DELICIOUS AND DRINKS ARE EXCELLENT!!!!
Was a great experience, will definitely come back again.
Hey There! Thank you so much for the awesome review. We have an upgraded menu coming out February 10th and can't wait for you to come back and try it. Thank you! Alyssa Herek | Restaurant Supervisor

Hey Phil, Thank you for leaving us a good review! We're so glad you had the chance to check out Country Brunch Live while you were in town. We look forward to your next visit. Thank you, Alyssa Herek | Restaurant Supervisor
Although the noise level was high we were looking for a party experience. The food was incredible. Highly recommend the brisket and the bread pudding but even the fries were exceptional.
Hey! Thank you for the awesome review. Depending on the band, it can get a little loud sometimes but we're so glad you enjoyed your overall experience. The brisket and bread pudding are some of our favorites! Can't wait to see you again soon! Thank you, Alyssa Herek | Restaurant Supervisor
I had the Southern Salad with Flatiron Steak added and my date had the Jumbalaya. Both were awesome, but our waitress was even better. She made us both glad that we chose to eat at The House of Blues before the concert that night. It was a perfect date night.
Hey Cindy! Thank you for leaving us such a good review. We're really glad you enjoyed the service and the food. Can't wait to see you again! Thank you, Alyssa Herek | Restaurant Supervisor
