Better Than Sex - A Classy Restaurant

Was taken out for a surprise birthday dinner at the Half Note Lounge. Enjoyed the jazz set with Marcus Johnson. It was nice and clean and our server Jordan made it even better offering the highest quality of service to the various cuisines. I had the jumble shrimp with mussels.

Great food. Horrible service. This is a fun Karaoke bar for mature crowds and the music lovers. If you want your drink quickly, order a bottle. If you want food, order it the moment you arrive. You may never see your server again...and if you do, he or she is bound to have an attitude. I'd come here again but... More

I would recommend Half Note's Sunday brunch. The food was decent and the atmosphere was cool. Our waitress was no concern. She helped us understand since it was our first time. First time going and it was more than I expected. One note, it is buffet style but the food is served/portioned by them. You can ask for more but... More

It's a very nice environment. Older crowd (40+). Decent food. The catfish fingers are the BOMB.com. Seriously, order that. I didn't like the sweet potato cornbread. It wasn't even cooked all the way through. The quesadillas were good, too. The service was OK. The waitress kept forgetting to bring things, which is not good. But she would be on it... More

I enjoy this spot for socializing and dancing. They have a nice crowd and good bands. It's like the neighborhood hang out with people you do not know. Everyone is nice, courteous and interested in having a good time.

If you love live music with an adult crowd this is the place to go. Thursday and Friday nights have not disappointed me. I'm a true fan of Secret Society and they play there every 1st and 3rd Friday. Pack your patience because it can be extremely crowded and busy. I love the calamari, cornbread, and sautéed spinach. A pretty... More

The Half Note Lounge is the best nightclub spot east of DC! PERIOD!! This place has class, and the well dressed customers, come because they know they are guaranteed a good time. I went on a Friday night and they had a live band called Lyve Band tearing it up!! The bartenders are very generous with their pours and the... More
