Crossroads at the House of Blues
Crossroads is located at the House of Blues in the West Side area of Disney Springs. It is open daily for Lunch from 11am until 4.45pm and Dinner from 5pm until 9pm.
Don't be put off by the ramshackle appearance of this restaurant as you stumble across it, stop by for some great eats and enjoy the sounds of the live Blues music that is provided. The restaurant is themed with wooden floors, wood walls and wooden tables, so when busy it can get quite noisy. The subdued lighting however does offer a cosy feel to the space. If you want to eat al fresco, then there are some tables outside overlooking the waterfront.
The menu has been redesigned by Food Network Star and Celebrity Chef Aaron Sanchez, offering exciting new Signature dishes as well as adding a contemporary twist on some of the classes favourites. The cuisine is inspired by a fusion of International flavours and those from the American South.
Start your meal with an appetiser of Street Tacos filled with blackened chicken, chargrilled citrus marinated steak, bay shrimp and avocado or chargrilled market fish. The menu also offers Aaron's Meatball Sliders, Crossroads Quesadilla's or Voodoo Shrimp made with sautéed shrimp, simmered in an amber beer reduction on top of jalapeño cornbread.
