Went there on a recent Saturday night and the place was packed -- too packed for my old bones. But a good time was being had by all, so how do you argue with that? Drinking is highly encouraged and the service was good, too,...More

So much fun! The place is packed, people are nice and the talent on stage was amazing. Worth the $5 cover charge. The audience was great, providing all kinds of songs to sing along to and just enjoy the artistry of the musicians.

Walked into this place from the bar next door, and because we purchased drinks at the next door bar, we just needed to show the receipt and got in without having to pay the $5 cover charge. Even so, $5 is pretty reasonable! Some tables...More
