This place has so much potential I fall for it every time. Just make some better food and train the bar staff to make a decent drink and things would be 100% better.

First of all, let's start off with focusing on the food situation. I was here with a group with about 60 people. We had a buffet set up in the back by the bar. The food was average but still pretty good and they had basic options such as mac n'cheese, chicken nuggets, salad, fruit, (you get the idea, buffet... More

Had such a wonderful time here. The piano players were so much fun and played every request we made (just make sure you tip them!) It was a night we will never forget! The servers were excellent and very attentive. We would highly recommend this to anyone staying in National Harbor.

Thanks for the great review Maura! I certainly agree that staying in the NH is a great bonus, why not make a staycation of it if you're a local? More

I love live music, and piano bars are always fun because they can play any requested song (or at least try!). It's different here- more like a concert with songs they already have planned out. Forget making any fun requests because they won't even try to play something they don't know.

Hi sunnytherese, Thanks for checking us out. I'm quite shocked by your review, but certainly can't tell you that the way you feel is wrong. It just contradicts every show I've seen here and other reviews that testify to exactly the opposite. I'd love to get more info. if you're willing to share: beth@bobbymckeys.com More

We were looking for some entertainment while in the Washington DC area and we found this spot online. We made our way down to it and we were glad that we did. It was a Wednesday night, so it was not very busy, but the crew was animated and entertaining even with the 100 people that were in the building.... More

This is a great place to go with friends at night. They had a few different people performing and singing very popular songs that everyone could sing to. The food was pretty good as well.

Came here for a birthday party and it was lots of fun. There are at least two people performing as of 8:30 pm non stop throughout the night, no breaks. You make a song request, and they sign, play the piano, drums, violin, or whatever, and most people sing along. The performers are funny and entertaining. If someone is celebrating... More

After dinner we had a few drinks here. I recommend getting here early so you can get a table. We stood up but still had fun. Good for a group of people.

Jerry, Thanks for taking the time to post this kind review & providing that insiders tip! If you come during the week, you can usually snag a table pretty easily. However, if you want to visit on a Fri. or Sat. and have a seat, you should plan ahead and pre-purchase those tickets. Cheers! More
