House of Blues is not only a world class entertainment venue; it’s also a restaurant that serves down home southern cooking. After you enjoy a crazy concert at one of the most intimate venues in the world, head over for some home-cooked specialties. You’ll also hear a lot more than Blues at this restaurant. Everything from hip-hop to punk rock is played nightly while you eat and many nights you will see live performances, as well. In fact, some of the biggest acts in the country will stop by the House of Blues for a smaller show that helps artists to re-connect with their fans. The concert area is set up so that every table can see the stage. For larger concerts, the tables are removed and dinner is served after the performance.
This Creole-style restaurant is themed and casual. Wood huts, Christmas lights, and indoor greenery make the restaurant look like you are in the bayou as you dine. Listen to great music and enjoy some authentic food at this popular tourist destination. Artwork and other memorabilia also provide the décor.
Specialties include Jambalaya, slow smoked Tennessee style baby back ribs, and stewed chicken. Appetizers include pan seared shrimp with rosemary cornbread and beer reduction, crispy catfish nuggets with sweet potato fries, and chicken gumbo. Grilled marinated chicken breast, an 8oz filet, and sausage are some of the favorite entrees. For dessert try the white chocolate banana bread pudding, chocolate mousse cheesecake, and Florida key lime pie make up the desserts.
The star of the show at House of Blues restaurant is their Sunday Gospel Brunch. As one of the best Sunday attractions in town, this southern style brunch is rich in history and in flavor.
