    Very good food!! This is the second weekend in a row that I came out for a concert, and was able to enjoy the music and food. So happy that live music is happening again. I need to set aside a weekend just to go down and listen to the live band playing. Burgers are juicy, and the brisket nachos are massive for an appetizer!!! Plenty of space between tables and not too loud if the band is not playing.

    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.

    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.

    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.
