House of Blues

Bar & Grill Restaurant in Barefoot Landing

 
House of Blues
Rated: 3.4 out of 5 with 53 Reviews

The first House of Blues opened in Cambridge, Mass., on Thanksgiving Day in 1992, generously feeding homeless people before opening their doors to the public. Although well known for its concert hall, the Myrtle Beach HOB's restaurant sports a relaxing, cozy atmosphere and the menu is noteably unique with their signature southern theme. Although often overshadowed by the popularity of the concerts and entertainers that perform at the House of Blues, the restaurant is entertaining as well, with a live jazz band, friendly staff, and Sunday Gospel brunches.

This was our first time at the HOB. Not what we expected. Almost looks like a hole in the wall but when you get inside, it is decorated quite nicely. The prices are OUTRAGEOUS. My brother got a salad and it was literally a quartered piece of lettuce, maybe 1/4 cup shredded cheese and 3 pieces of shrimp for $16. Drinks are outrageous. We had 5 o'clock reservations, got there 3 minutes until 5 and had to wait to be seated because 'our wait or hadn't showed up yet" and there were tons of tables open. Wings are not the wings we expected but the entire wing of the chicken. Won't be returning.

Had heard so many good things about the breakfast buffet at HOB we decided to finally try it. What a Disappointment! First - everything was cold except the omeletes that were made to order (however the chef did not wait long enough for the cheese to melt so you had hot omelette and cold cheese inside.) Very small selection - I wouldn't even call this a buffet. There was the following: scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, bacon, wedges of potato and very small waffles. The food was not great and as i said before everything was cold. Will not go back again.

We ate here at 7:00 pm on a Saturday night and were able to get a table immediately. Our server was awesome and the food was fanastic. I had the Pulled pork sandwich and my boyfriend had the mushroom penne and he was just in love with it. Great place to go :) Ask about the history of the bar... It is very interesting :)

i have to admit i was disappointed with my recent visit to the house of blues. I had heard great things and was excited, until we got there. we had to wait 20 minutes to be seated when the place was almost empty only about 15 customers. the lack of options on the menu was surprising, the kids menu did not come with a side, the mac and cheese for the toddler was down right gross... for not beign busy the waitress was not very accomodating, we had to flag her down repeatedly. I would NEVER recommend the House of Blues to my friends or family.. : (

We early for dinner that night it was about 4:30 - 5:00, we waited for a table for at least ten minutes, after being seated i looked around the place had five to eight tables filled. So we not sure why it took so long to get a table, first off. The waitness was nice when she did come to the table, our order took a very long time to arrive. the menu was very short not much to choose from, my husband ordered a side salad with his meal and got the house salad since i don't eat meat. when they brough out his salad i went ahead and started to eat his and told him i would spilt mine when it came. after waiting another 15 - 20 minutes she brought and your plates, my house salad was smaller than his side salad there was barely any tomates, carrots ect, i was very disappointed with the whole experience the price of the food was outrageous did not enjoy, it don't go there,

We had a party of 12 (5 adults, 7 children 12 and under). First off we had a coupon from resturant.com. Spend $100 get $50 off (spent 3.00 for the coupon). When we first sat down I noticed the childrens menu didn't offer a drink with the meal, so I looked up the price for the drinks...3 DOLLARS!!!!! Of course the kids wanted drinks NOT water, so we ordered. I was not happy about this. Granted we had a coupon, but we spent 25.00 on tea and sodas!! CRAZY!!!!! We had 3 drinks to spill during dinner, and the 2nd one I had to clean up myself! VERY RUDE!! So our children's drinks come out, and they charge same amout for children's cup (half the size of an adult drink). NOT FAIR!! how can you get away with that?????? seriously???? The dinner was ok?? NOT WORTH THE MONEY EVEN WITH COUPON!!! I got chicken breast which was tiny. We went once and we will NEVER GO back until they change the policy for drinks!! They are making a killing on drinks not only for resturant, but then it drives the ticket price so you have to leave more for a tip!! CRAZY!!!!

We just returned on Sunday (19th) after a four day mini-vacation in Myrtle Beach. Of all the eating establishments patronized, "THIS" was by far the worst both in palpability and cost for the amount of food received! My wife ordered the so-called "Catch of the day", which turned out to be Mahi Mahi. The portion was about three ounces of blackened fish with cajun seasoning, about four ounces of mashed potatoes, and approximately a dozen small florets of broccoli. The price affixed to this paltry serving turned out to be $20. The reason that I state it this way as to the cost was due to the fact that the cost wasn't listed of the menu. I ordered the Jumbo blackened shrimp served on a bed of alfredo fettuccine. I was charged $18 for five shrimp, which turned out to be large instead of jumbo. The fettuccine was totally devoid of alfredo sauce and instead contained some sort of sweet red sauce that did not fit well with either the shrimp or the pasta. We also ordered a house salad with bleu cheese dressing and were charged $3 each with no concession considering the high prices of the entrees. Even though we relayed our disappointment to our waiter, at no time did any one on management staff stop by our table to inquire about our meal or to address our concerns that had previously been expressed to our waiter. During the course of sitting and partaking of our meal, a manager did pass by our table two times and neither of the two times did he acknowledge and/or ask us about how our meal was or if we had any concerns pertaining to our meal. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know when someone has indeed been ripped off and we certainly were taken advantage of in that respect or lack of respect. We will not be recommending HOB to anyone, as a matter-of-fact we'll be doing quite the opposite and listing our experience(s) on some of the consumer blogs that we list on. I made several attempts to contact HOB "via" their web site and land line, all to no avail. They have a # listed in California, BUT, it rings and rings and no one answers. I even tried calling the # on the facility in Myrtle Beach and it goes to an announcement about events at said facility.

I wouldn't be able to review the food because we never came that far. I've worked in several restaurants waiting tables and I'm patient with servers, I understand that sometimes you have to wait for food, a table, a drink, etc. However, my mother and I watched as six (I counted) different servers passed us by without even a nod, greeting, or eye contact. While the lady who greeted us was friendly, we sat for nearly 20 minutes without anyone ever saying hello or attempting to take a drink order. I understand having an off day, but there was no excuse for this in a nearly dead dining room in the off season. The menu looked overpriced, at any rate. Save yourself a hassle and head somewhere else.

we arrived at 10:30 AM for the breakfast buffet on Saturday, Sept 11th. The hostess was extremely friendly; the food was very good. The waitress was a bit slow but it did not affect our satisfaction. We will definitely return!

We were nervous about going to HOB after reading some of the reviews, but we really enjoyed ourselves! Got seated much faster than expect and the service was very nice, if a little slow. We tried the Mahi Mahi (fish of the day). BBQ was excellent, FOTD was...ok. After dinner we enjoyed a live band out on the deck. All in all a good experience.

Had a coupon for a free appetizer, and we got the Voodoo shrimp which was great. The Mushroom Penne was pretty good too, loved the gouda cheese. The atmosphere was nice but I really think it was overpriced. In the restrooms, both men and women, there was a person that wanted tips--kind of annoying. Overall, not bad.

We've been coming to NMB for 13+ years with the kids. HOB used to be one of the absolute must go to resturants. Over the years it has become shopworn and run down (yes I understand the point of the decor), but the food has consistently gone downhill too. Even the kids didn't want to go back. Until the place is spruced up a bit and the menu gets a makeover, we won't be back.
