We went several years ago and it was outstanding. Our last experience, in January, was not great, because of our seats. Make sure you get a table in front of the stage. The sight lines from the side tables are horrible and we could only see one backup singer. HOB gave us a full refund, though. The buffet is excellent, but make sure and get everything you want to try right at the start. They don't refill anything close to the show and I missed a chance to try the catfish!

Our Ratings of House of Blues Gospel Lunch: (1/6/2013)
. . . food price value: B
. . . food quality: B
. . . food quantity per serving: A
. . . food prep speed: B
. . . food selection: C
. . . seating quantity: C
. . . seating comfort: C
. . . eatery atmosphere: B
. . . eatery convenience: C
. . . staff friendliness: B
. . . staff attentiveness: B
. . . character interaction: n/a

NOTE: This is a true Gospel Luncheon, this is not a
rock-and-roll fest. If you enjoy good Gospel music, this
is hard to beat. It is well planned and well staged. The
food is above average and good comfort food on the
buffet. The only bad part is that there are some "wing"
seats that have little to no view.

1) Both shows are equally well done.
2) Just pick the one that fits your schedule.

We are also interested in going on our upcoming trip in March. This was the 1st and only House of Blues thread that I found, so I hope you don't mind me asking here?
I purchased 2 GC from Restaurant.com (they are available right now) and it did not mention only being able to use ONE until AFTER I purchased. How picky are they with this? I had obviously wanted to use both of them to pay for our 3 tickets to the Gospel Brunch. Kind of peeved that they didn't mention this on the terms before purchase. My only saving grace (pardon the pun) is that the GC's do not expire.
Anyone have any knowledge/advice? Thank you.

I don't think you can use Restaurant.com for the gospel lunch.

. . . nope

able to use ONE until AFTER I purchased. How picky are they with this?
. . . very "picky"
. . . to honor more than one cert at a time would make them lose money
. . . thus, eateries take only one cert per table
. . . this applies to all of their certs


I had obviously wanted to use both of them to pay for our 3 tickets to the Gospel Brunch.
. . . can't use them during same visit, as mentioned
. . . plus, I thought they could not be used for the Gospel Lunch
. . . of course, these rules might have changed
. . . the lunch fills up regularly
. . . they usually do not a promotion to get customers for Gospel Lunch


Kind of peeved that they didn't mention this on the terms before purchase.
. . . these are clearly stated under "Terms" on the "Home" page of the site *

Anyone have any knowledge/advice?
. . . just be prepared to pay regular price

* Per website Home Page under Terms: "Only one (1) Restaurant- Specific Certificate may be
redeemed per party, per month, per Issuer (even if the party is seated at separate tables and/or
receives more than one check.)."

The last time I checked (which I admit was about a year ago), the Restaurant.com certificates specifically said they could not be used for the Brunch. We just used ours to eat dinner one night.

They have always had the policy that a restaurant would accept one no more than once a month.

EDITED: Well I just went to the site and acted like I was going to purchase another one and nothing was said about not being able to use it for the Brunch. I swear when we bought one last year, that over on the right hand side, where it has the prices of the certificates, it stated the certificate could not be used for the Gospel Brunch.

We did the 10:30 and it was fantastic. Got out around 12:00. There was such a great variety of food, plenty of it and the entertainment was great. Would highly recommend it!

I asked this same question on the budget board with no response. I am familiar with the older certificates that specifically stated it could not be used for the gospel brunch (you are correct) and now after buying one last month noticed that same stipulation was not there. Makes me wonder if I can use it for that???I was hoping someone could give me an answer if they were allowed to use a restaurant.com certificate for the Gospel Brunch recently.
