Paid a cover charge for the, very average, not blues band - they also expected tips, cheek. Food and service OK but server brought bill before we could ask for dessert menu. Overall a very disappointing experience.

Entertained by Bridgestone Jones and amazing musicians all four of them. I am looking them up on Google, cuz they were so good. Fingers fling over strings, piano keys and the drums. Wish I had seen them again before we left for Minnesota.
