Hello, I bought a home in Ocean isle Beach this past summer, for the next several years I will only be visiting for a week at a time a few times s year, until we move there sometime in 2019. I was hoping I could get some feedback on the House of Blues in North Myrtle Beach, I'll be down in April, thought i"d like to go there to see a show. From their website, it seems the general admission tickets are standing only, and they offer seating for higher priced tickets, and for dinner. Can anyone offer their thoughts on the quality of their dinners, and the general experience? Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks, Gary

The food is very good. We enjoy the HOB and happily pay for the dinner and seats for the bands we prefer to see there.

I love the House of Blues in Boston & NYC. The one in North Myrtle Beach has not had a great lineup IMO. It was great that OAR played there but I could have done without Motor City Madness.

Thanks for the input. Am I correct from reading their website that the floor is standing room only, and that the only seating is on the floor above? How are the sound and sightlines?

We haven't seen a show there, but did have dinner. On Wednesday nights, if you order prime rib, your 2nd prime rib dinner is $0.01. And, it was delicious.

We weren't sure what to expect since the outside of their buildings aren't particularly attractive. Service was excellent as was the food.

Sorry I can't speak to their entertainment.

Yes, the floor is standing room only. It's fairly spacious, but can get packed in during a big show. It has that typical small venue feel where folks crowd into the floor area holding their beers and bumping elbows throughout the show. Good for an energizing show, but if you're looking to sit back and enjoy music from your seats, you'll definitely want to spring for the higher priced tickets.

I've never eaten there nor recall how expansive the seating area is to see the stage (I don't recall a lot of prime seating). It might be worth a try though.

It's not a stadium, its a concert hall....and it's a very good one IMO. It has a more intimate feel. The lineups haven't been great over the years but every month or so they have a good act.

I really like going to see shows in the offseason when it is more of a local crowd rather than tourists.

There is seating on the same floor where people stand but it is elevated above the heads of the people standing. They are round tables that seat 4 and the staff is extremely vigilant about not letting anyone else sit or stand in that area except us those of us who paid for that seating. We're in our early 60s and love a variety of music, but of course, we do prefer the music of our generation. We have tickets for Styx now, including those seats and dinner.

Thanks for all the feedback. Nice to hear the food is good, and I'm glad to hear about the raised area with tables for 4. Thta sounds ideal to me. RB1234, enjoy the show, I like Styx to, at least until that Roboto stuff. Did you like Damn Yankees?

I'm not familiar with Damn Yankees but my husband is and he said they were just ok. We're not Ted Nugent fans.....We're hoping they start to book more bands that we like, but you know, there is an outside deck where they also have music in the warmer months and that's fun too. In the past two years we've enjoyed Buddy Guy and Johnny Lang, Gregg Almann, JJ Grey and Mofro, The Molly Ringwalds(fun 80s band) to name a few. We saw Heart there about 9 years ago and Pat Benetar about 7 years ago-wish the HOB would book more music like that. You should also check out The Alabama Theatre which is steps away from the HOB. They book guest artists. This past year, we saw The Happy Together Tour with The Turtles, and more, Three Dog Night, Martina McBride, a great Beatles tribute band to name a few.
