    The restaurant has been closed since 2020 when it shut down for Covid. I have no idea why this reservation was booked and accepted. The Foundation Room was open but it’s only a bar offering bar food. Very disappointed

    The house of blues was closed and has been closed in Dallas . We showed up to our reservation and to be turned away. I gave you a one star but you deserve negative. You need to do a better job of making sure these restaurants are operating. Terrible experience just terrible.

    We booked our table for 2 and ended up having 2 other people sit with us. The tables were crammed together and all had 4 people sitting on tables that should have only sat 2. The woman next to me who was also crammed on the little tables screamed into my ear for an hour and a half. Poor planning on House of Blues part as there was no direction nothing to indicate where we should be seated, etc. No security. Would definitely not recommend going back to watch any shows.

    We get to House of Blues for our reservation to find out they are closed down permanently. Why would they accept reservations and the website shows open if they are closed? What a waste of time and money to Uber there for dinner. Highly disappointed!!

    Tables were well spaced out and servers/staff were wearing masks. We split the pulled pork BBQ nachos and mac & cheese skillet - more than enough food for two people. Sat near the stage and the music was good, not so loud we couldn't keep talking.

    Arrived on time. Seated immediately. Almost 15 min for our server to come to our table. Got our drinks and ordered our food. 45 min later still hadn’t received our food. No explanation. Got up and walked out. A complete embarrassment. If I was owner I’d fire all the staff. Can’t wait to share my experience with others. Also, a nice bait and switch for “pass the line” to the show we were planning to attend. Website says come eat at the restaurant and get a pass to skip the line for the show that evening. When I ask for the pass, they say sorry that show doesn’t allow for pass the line. What a scam to get people to the restaurant before the show.

    This was my first time eating at HOB, and was very disappointed. Our server was sweet, but the food was not great. I got the pulled pork sandwich and it was very fatty and I couldn’t eat all of it. I ordered a small salad to start and got a behemoth size instead. My friend got the gumbo and said it tasted “off” for the price we paid it wasn’t worth it. Will most likely not go back to when we come for another concert.

    Wonderful service amazing food — be sure to try the bourbon butter fried chicken. A live band was setting up but we had to leave before they started. Great place to eat lots of good food and walkable to the American Airlines Center so you can catch a game or a concert. We will be back for sure

    The Band, Remy Reilly was excellent. The Carolina Mess had almost no cheese. I expect cheese with cheese fries. Fries were good, pulled pork was great and grave was fine. The brussel sprouts were sweet and mustardy, were not very good. Loved the vibe at the restaurant. The cheese burger was excellent. We will be back to eat there again, just have to be more careful what I order.

    We sat 10 minutes before they took our drink order. 20 minutes more before our food order. Once we ordered, it took 40 minutes to get our food. It was only 2 entrees and a kid's meal. We watched food runners run all over the restaurant with food on a tray. They had no idea what food belonged where. It was chaos. And really overpriced for below average food quality. We'll never eat there again.

    We booked this dining experience as a precursor to the DAYGLOW Concert. Over all the experience was pleasant. However, for the money it was lacking in the typical amenities such as salt/pepper shakers, more than one plate for the appetizer, serving a can of beer without a glass, and other additional items. The server Kennedy was on point though! Her desire to get things right was immediately impressive. It isn't a bad review of this place more a critical critique of what could have been better.

    They were out of two of the dishes i spotted on the menu. The vegetables were undercooked and the salmon was super dry. Next time I’ll hit the jinya ramen bar around the corner before a show.

    This venue seems to rely on its live music entertainment to get by. They do not put much effort into the food. We ordered the $30 steak dinners. Both steaks were tough and greasy, the vegetables were chewy, the mashed potatoes were runny. The waiter was not attentive. I had to walk to the bar to get another round of drinks. The experience was bad. And we drove 45 mins to get there which was really a disappointment.

    First let me start by saying music was Incredible!! The server was really sweet. The drinks were over priced and took forever to receive and there were only a few tables in the whole place that were occupied. The food was also over priced, not as bad as the drinks however, and it was ok. I think the fries were everyone's favorite, not the chicken sandwich or the burger!!

    Waitress was not attentive and made my dining experience less enjoyable . Having to wait a very long time for waitress for water and cocktails, and to ask for anything my table needed is not my idea of a date night dinner. My first time there and not sure if it’s always like that because table near by had same issue.

    Do not eat dinner here. Worst service ever. Took forever (when the restaurant wasn’t even 30% full) and they couldn’t get anything right. House of Blues needs to stick to drinks and concerts.

    Noise level is energetic when band is playing. Otherwise, was much quieter during breaks. We had four for dinner and Trinity River Blues night (on Tuesdays). Absolutely fabulous music and food was excellent. We ordered four different items: shrimp poor boy, brisket sandwich, pulled pork sandwich, and a mac-and-cheese side. Food was served at one time (I noticed a poster noted different times of serving being an issue). The broiche sandwich buns are great. We had a lovely time, as we always do.

    I made reservations an hour later than I wanted to because it showed everything was booked at 8pm. When we got there, there were 2 other tables and the music was late in starting and ended an hour later. The restaurant closed shortly after the music ended. This was on a weekend. Pretty pathetic for House of Blues.

    The service was good but the food was not great. The drink selection was limited. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this place if you want good food and drink. For the price of the food and drinks I expected the quality to be better.
