Bartenders were friendly, drinks were good and reasonably prices. We did not order food. The piano players were alot of fun. Wouldn't really recommend for conservative people as some of the songs got a little dirty! Everyone was having a great time though. There was a $5 cover fee that I didn't expect considering you still had to pay for... More

It is an average piano bar but I've never seen service that bad. Waiter was extremely rude and asked us to leave because we were seating at a table that was apparently reserved.

Went there on a groupon, no pianos, not funny at all, got our groupon drink, waitress took our empty glasses and said she was just filling in, never was able to order another drink, finally walked out. I have been to comedy clubs all over the US and never knew one could be this bad.

As someone who does not go out to bars much, I have finally found one I really enjoy. The piano players are good and know pretty much all of the hits. Anybody can go up and request a song (with a tip). The musicians are truly more like entertainers though, they keep the audience entertained and do a great job... More

These guys are as good as any I've been to in the big cities! Excellent piano skills tied in with funny, spontaneous lyrics from songs selected by the audience. It's fun for groups or as an adjunct to a nice dinner date downtown . We have been several times and are never disappointed. Bar is well stocked. Fill out your... More

The piano bar provided the middle age a place to go in a college town. Fiancé and I enjoyed the music and piano dueling. Service was great and music choices also great. Very diversified groups.
