This place is a great little unique hang-out in National Harbor! Within walking distance of many hotels I found this to be a great place. The guys playing the pianos were very talented and quite entertaining! The food and drinks were also quite delicious!

My wife and I went here on a Friday night in February. We were seated at a table with 8 other guests. It was basically what I expected, a good time singing along to the songs and laughing at the jokes. The food was typical bar food. We had the crab dip with nachos. It was a little greasy and...

We had the pleasure of celebrating my friends birthday here. We loved the bar. The dueling pianos are so much fun. The guys playing the piano really keep you engaged. The drinks were good and strong.

The entertainment was really fun - the guys can sing as well as play, and were really making sure the crowd was having fun along with them - they alone are worth the visit. The drinks arrived with lightening speed and we were all set for a great night. But... Despite putting in our food order (for 6 of us)... More

I organized a 50th birthday party for my friend this past weekend. Everything from planning to the event itself was fabulous but the place does get PACKED. We had reserved seats for 23 and only 21 could be seated, sqooshed together. Had to get extra chairs but there was nowhere to put them. Music is great, drinks good, great entertainment... More

I was so looking forward to taking some important business guests to Bobby McKey's. Had been before and thoroughly enjoyed the show. So - we got there nice and early, were shown to our table. Pleasant server, ordered drinks. Drinks arrived and we ordered food. The pianists came on and the show started. And we waited for our food. We... More

Had never been to a dueling piano bar. Very good service to start the evening. Professional entertainers gave us a great show. The kind of music this baby boomer loves. Younger one around us were having a good time too. Well worth the price of admission. I'll be back.

Second time to Bobby McKey's and again, they put on a killer show. There didn't seem to be a song that the performers couldn't replicate in the most entertaining way imaginable. Definitely ask for "Devil Went Down to Georgia", Danny saws on that fiddle and plays it hot. Ronnie, Neil and Jimmy put on a great show. I assume Andrew... More

If we review just by the entertainment, then I give this place 5 stars. Love it, have a blast there! The thing that frustrates me is that they are already making a small fortune and then they water down the drinks worse than any bar I have ever seen. So, if you go, stick to beer, wine, shots - don't... More

This was my first dueling piano bar. The good is that the atmosphere is fun and draws you in. It is a bit of a circus and was confused a bit by a cover charge, followed by an almost mandatory tip to have your request played, and then the slogans on the mirrors at another cost. Although this was a... More

Hi Thomas! We appreciate you coming in to visit us and enjoy our Dueling Piano Show. Like you mentioned, the camaraderie you find between guests is awesome, and seems to be a result of the nostalgia and music we provide (perhaps a bit alcohol fueled as well.) I'd like to clear up your confusion over the $5 cover charge. We... More
