Fashioned in the ambience of an old Southern Delta juke joint, the House of Blues features some of the best local and national blues artists. Offering unique southern-inspired fare such as jambalaya, barbeque chicken, etouffee, and catfish bites in addition to traditional favorites like prime rib, baby back ribs, and New York strip steak.


Frommer's Review

Many visitors come to this restaurant looking for a burger and a stiff drink, and leave with a newfound appreciation for American folk art. With virtually every inch of its interior plastered over with vernacular art by largely untrained Southern artists, this Grand Strand version of the House of Blues franchise is by far the most aesthetically interesting bar, restaurant, and musical venue in Myrtle Beach. You'll recognize it by a design that emulates a rusted hulk you might have found deep in the Mississippi Delta, the kind of battered venue that might be appropriate for a religious revival and the laying-on of hands. Redolent of bourbon and live jazz, however, it's more urbanized and hip than the folk-art setting would imply. The labyrinthine interior features indoor/outdoor bars and several dining areas. There's even a rear veranda where a collection of antique hubcaps is elevated to a kitschy, and very charming, art form. Culinary fare includes fish, burgers, salads, steaks, ribs, and all the Southern staples you can handle. There's a "Gospel Brunch" ("Have mercy and say yeah") every Sunday from 9am to 2pm, with a buffet that's priced at $19 per person, $8.50 children 6 to 12. No one will mind if you come here just to drink, mingle, gossip, and flirt. And, if you're interested in music, concerts are scheduled almost every night in the summer, with tickets priced from $15 to $85 each. Box office hours are from 11am to 6pm daily.
