Dueling Piano show started at 8PM so stopped in to have a drink and listen. Glad we did. Can't rate the food because we didn't taste it but others plates looked good and quantity looked good. Drinks were fair due to the price for their size but really enjoyed the pianos!

We went there around 10 for a drink or two and first they were playing music that was pretty popular. Towards the end they were playing music that I've never heard before but everyone else has. It had an older set of clientele than I expected but was a fun time overall. Should have been more drunk.

Food was tasty, but for the value, I'm only giving it three stars. It was nothing spectacular, and you do pay for being in the Village to be here. Drinks were alright as well, but I asked for something a bit out of the ordinary and it came out a little funny. I suppose the bartender on duty wasn't on... More

Let me start out by saying that we are locals. We have been there several times before and enjoyed the food atmosphere and drinks. However, this time was far from the others, and in fact we will never be back. I wish I could rate the food from this last time but that's impossible because after being there for an... More

This is a tourist restaurant so keep that in mind while visiting. Drinks are expensive and food is just Ok. Atmosphere is Ok, if you sit outside you have a view of the small lake and we had a nice breeze while we were there for lunch. It was not very busy while we were there for early lunch, but... More

The food was alright. The drinks were a little expensive. But the reason you go to a piano bar is for the music and the fun. We got there early and the piano players weren't performing yet. But there was a guy with an acoustic guitar that was fantastic. He could play any style of music and really knew how... More

We walked to the Village for a quick dinner, planning on just grabbing a quick bite to eat and calling it a night early because we had reservations for deep sea fishing the following morning at 6am.

Dueling pianos? Maybe I'm spoiled since I live in Nashville, TN. correct me if I'm wrong if I where a piano artist my first song of the night would blow the roof off the place.

Was fun - but after a certain time it got really crowded with lots of folks having a lot of fun. If you like to drink and dance - this is a great spot at Baytown Wharf. If your looking for something less crowded - go before 10pm.
