House of Blues Gospel Brunch Review

by Alli

Recently, my three daughters and I spent a girls weekend at North Myrtle Beach to celebrate the upcoming May 14th wedding of my youngest daughter. We had such a good time shopping, eating and spending time on the beach. The highlight of our trip was the House of Blues Gospel Brunch.

House of Blues Gospel Brunch - held every Sunday

It was fitting that we stayed in our timeshare condo that we’ve had ever since my youngest daughter was a preschooler. Where did the time go? We reminisced about past vacations and had a blast. Our only wish was that the weekend had been longer.

Note: I didn’t take my big girl camera, so all photos were taken with my iPhone.

Here’s a peek from our balcony.

As I stated earlier, the highlight of our trip was our Sunday Morning House of Blues Gospel Brunch. My oldest daughter made brunch reservations a few days before our girls weekend and we had the best table in the place.

Come on in, let’s do brunch!

House of Blues Gospel Brunch

We’ve eaten at the House of Blues before and my oldest daughter has been to several concerts there, including Sister Hazel, but this was our first Sunday Brunch.

The live band, Glory, was amazing!  They sang all our favorite gospel songs and a few that we’d never heard.

During one song (This Little Light of Mine), one of the singers said she was coming down from the stage to get some people to sing with her. She headed straight to our table and because I can’t carry a tune in a bucket, I was willing her to keep on walking.

Thankfully, she handed off the mic to my daughter, who is a great singer and sings in a Praise band. She brought down the house and I was thrilled that she didn’t stick that mic in my face. I would have passed it off in a New York minute. Really, I can’t sing! You can read all about the night I sang karaoke.

The band played 15 minute sets before taking short breaks. During the second set, they gave a shoutout to my daughter, Caitlin, and her upcoming wedding.

Let’s talk about the food. I don’t usually do buffets. You can see what I normally think about them here. The House of Blues Gospel Brunch buffet was one of the cleanest, (yes, I check!) well organized buffets I’ve seen.

The first thing you see when you walk out onto the terrace (more like a sunroom) is the Bloody Mary station. We bypassed it since we don’t do Bloody Mary’s, but it’s there for those of you who do.

Take a left and you’ve arrived at the food buffet.

There’s all the classic breakfast foods – bacon, sausage, gravy and biscuits, potatoes, cheese grits, chicken & waffles (fried bone-in chicken and chicken strips).

You’ll also find a meat carving station, peel and eat shrimp, all types of vegetables, fruit and my personal favorite, a macaroni and cheese station (yum!).

House of Blues Gospel Buffet Bread Pudding

Don’t fill up too quickly, because you’ll want to save room for the dessert station. Key Lime Tarts and the Bread Pudding were my favorites desserts.

Brunch Toppings at the House of Blues Gospel Brunch

Believe me, there’s something for everyone while you enjoy great gospel music. Kids are welcome, too. We saw lots of families enjoying brunch.

The House of Blues Gospel Brunch at Myrtle Beach happens every Sunday from 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM. Reservations are recommended.

Cost: Adults – $31 Children aged 4-10 – $15.50 and Children 3 & Under – FREE

The highlight of our Girls Weekend was the Sunday House of Blues Gospel Brunch. Click the pic to see what I thought about the food and the entertainment.

Have you ever been to the House of Blues Gospel Brunch? It’s worth a visit.

Now that’s definitely something you definitely don’t see up here in the northeast (the gospel part). How interesting that they have a themed brunch like this. Glad you guys got the chance to experience it.

I live in SC and sadly have never been to Myrtle Beach. It looks like your condo is beautiful, and that view is pretty. I think we might take a day trip and visit House of Blues.

Alli May 4, 2016 - 7:22 am

Myrtle Beach is a fun place to visit. We’ve always stayed in North Myrtle because it’s a little quieter than Myrtle Beach. 🙂

What a beautiful place. Your photos are super uplifting, I can only image the feeling of being there in person.

Pam May 3, 2016 - 11:57 am

Brunch is one of my favorite meals to eat out. This sounds like an awesome experience with great food and great music.

Lisa May 3, 2016 - 1:08 pm

What a fun way to spend a Sunday. I love brunch and think it is one meal we don’t have enough of.

Maureen May 3, 2016 - 1:48 pm

Breathtaking, this really looks like an amazing experience. I Love that you shared this with us, made me smile. Looks like a super fun way to enjoy a Sunday.

What a fun trip to Myrtle beach!! Congrats on the upcoming wedding, what a great way to spend one of your last couple weekends.

This looks like such a fun restaurant to visit! I love the bread pudding and key lime tarts. I would love to eat here any day of the week!

That sounded like so much fun! I’d have a blast seeing the live performance and the food looks great too!

Wow this sounds like loads of fun! I think this would be a blast to visit, and all that food… looks incredible!

Eloise May 3, 2016 - 4:02 pm

that place looks amazing, like my kind of place. I love food and I LOVE Gospel music, I used to sing Gospel in church in my younger days. When I move I’m looking to get back into that at a near by church I found! I wish we had a brunch place like that in Mpls,MN.

I love the idea of a girls weekend; that is so freaking cute. I love the look of this place, I like places that have character and personality. They usually have the best food too.

Bella May 3, 2016 - 9:50 pm

I have never heard of the blues gospel brunch before but need to go now that I have seen this! This looks fantastic.

Brittany May 4, 2016 - 12:15 am

Wow, this looks like a beautiful place and a fun time! Blues gospel music sounds wonderful

I would sure love to visit the House of Blues. I like the old town set up. The simplicity of the place just makes it refreshing.

The Cubicle Chick May 4, 2016 - 1:36 am

Sounds like you guys had fun. I’m down for gospel music, but like you, I’m not singing. Thanks for the review.

Mariah Leeson May 4, 2016 - 10:00 am

LOL, “Praise the Lord and Pass the Biscuits”, now that’s my kind of party! This looks like such a fun girls weekend.

The Cubicle Chick May 4, 2016 - 11:17 pm

First of all your photos are amazing! Looks like a great event. 🙂

Myrtle Beach is absolutely beautiful, isn’t it?! All of your pictures do a great job of capturing this city’s raw, nautical appeal. It looks like you guys had a great vacation and really enjoyed yourselves! Nice post! Thanks so much for sharing this!
