“Voices, anyone?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

The atmosphere was fun but I expected that a piano bar would focus on hiring people that could sing well. There are so many reality shows that showcase singing talent that I expected that I should be able to recognize the songs quickly. This area needs improvement. The singers and drummer were very energetic and fun. The one mixed drink we got was awful.

“Ugh... Bucket drinks? really?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

Grab your wallet before being treated to warm beer and/or obnoxiously large bucket drinks akin to New Orleans. You'll howl at the moon when seeing the prices and the lackadaisical service. Didn't eat here luckily, but the menu looked just as uninspired... Money better spent going to Blue Chicago or any number of places.

“Dueling Piano Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Rock music with request box, turned into a giant sing-along. This runs 7 days per week. Was one of my personal favourites this trip!

“Service was mediocre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We were laughed at when we asked if there was a cover and were complaining about the 10 dollar cover across the street on a Tuesday night..."of course there is a cover" they said..so we paid, went in and it was too much of a drunk older corporate crowd in there. Not really our scene. I'm sure if varies night to night. If you have ever been to a non chain piano bar don't go to Howl at the Moon..too touristy and I'm not from Chicago :D
