Stopped by for New Years Eve and this place was fun! Service was great, we didn't get food, but our server made himself aware and got use refills before we were out. The pianists have a great sense of humor, and made out time there a lot of fun!

We were with a large group, and attended a private event here. It was great fun-the musicians are very talented and anxious to get the audience involved. They both play multiple instruments and ad lib songs to fit the crowd. It was a great time!

good for that evening fun place to go and eat and lessen to little piano music. Don't know if it would appeal to everyone.

We had an absolute blast at this piano bar. I have been to several across the Nation and this did not disappoint at all. Service was excellent as well!

Make sure to arrive early. Music starts at eight and tables fill up quickly. Light bar food only, chips and salsa resemble Tostitos rounds. Bartenders were great. Nice setup with servers instead of patrons surrounding the bars.

This facility has very good food, especially their selection of pizzas! One of the things that this place is known for is their fish bowls.... They have two sizes: personalized "goblets" with half a dozen flavors (they run $12) and the Blue Moon Bowl, which is a large fishbowl that can satisfy a large party (run $29, so even with... More

A fun and engaging atmosphere- they "personalize" for the groups that are there. ( A note-Not for kids)

Drastically under staffed we went to the bar to ask for service and to order drinks. Our food order took an hour and twenty minutes for fried food and then it was cold. Don't get me started on the beer selection...boring beer selection an upgrade with some craft selection may have made the night an improvement. Entertainment was just okay,... More

We went out with friends for a fun night. The entertainment was great, but the food was okay at best and the service was so slow we ordered from the bar. It was a weekend night and it was busy, but they seemed very understaffed.

We had a good time. We only went for the entertainment and to have a few drinks. We did order a blue drink in a fish bowl. It was only $25 and I split it with my friend. It was actually a pretty good deal. Better than paying for single drinks all night. I ordered an amaretto sour when we... More
