I really enjoyed going to concerts at HOB. I've seen probably 5 or 6 shows here throughout the years and I'm really disappointed that it had to close along with the Showboat. I hope that they're able to re-open at another location soon!

Went to see Neyo we had to settle for the floor seat but they ended up being great. Room to dance and not worry about anyone standing in front or behind me. The venue itself was pretty basic. No fancy lighting OK sound system. All...More

Went to a concert here, nice place, good acoustics. Staff managed crowds. Sound quality good. First time here and probably last time since they are closing down at the end of Aug. Too bad. Another nail in ACs struggle with the competition. Drinks expensive.

The casino only has one location for smokers. For those with sensitive noses, house of blues provides no smoking locations. Friendly staff and great food at Johnny Rockets.

Have seen Grace Potter, The Cult and Darius Rucker here and never disappointed. Small, great sight-lines, and very good acoustics make this a terrific place to catch a show. If you don't mind standing, go for general admission and get a terrific view of the...More

Had lunch here. Chicken was chewy and dry. Service was quite slow. Would not return here to eat. I have been to the House of Blues in Orlando which was good. This one unfortunately falls short of the mark.

Went to see a concert there and got a small drink-it was $8! Can't complain too much as it is AC and everything will be expensive. The sound in this place is amazing.

We stopped by the bar for a drink and a quick lunch. Bartender was great, prices reasonable and food was very good. I had a Classic Club and my husband had a special of the day- Reuben Sliders, also very good. Would return.
