“Enjoyable evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

The piano players here are amazing! They know so many songs and are really entertaining. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Hearing a grown man singing 'Call me maybe' was highly entertaining! Customers pay the pianists to play their song requests and even to stop other people's requests!

The drinks were reasonably priced as we went midweek and there were a few different deals on house vodka and beer. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

“Good times”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

The piano players are excellent. It's amazing that they know so many songs. It was my sister's bachelorette party and I'm so glad they got her on stage! she was so embarrassed! It's a nice mix of music and comedy.

“Great dueling pianos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

This was a fun night. We walked in about 7ish and it was already packed on a Sat night. If you want a table you need to reserve it ahead of time. As we walked up they told us it was a $10 cove and standing room only. We were able to find a seat after about 20-25 minutes. The service from the bartenders and the wait staff was good. The piano players were very good and they did not beg for money like some piano bars do they played what was given and livened up the place. I would not hesitate to go again but I would make a reservation and get there by 6:30pm.

“Great for entertainment, food not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We had booked a party of 14 with a prepaid bar+food. They were nice enough to provide some birthday decorations on all the tables at no charge which is nice.
Although our tables were all next to each other (small moveable tables for 4) they would not allow us to move the tables together.
All the soda was flat - tonic, coke etc. We sent back the G&T's, and they came back exactly the same. This should signal to someone that they need to check the gas cartridges or whatever produces the bubbles for the soda. The service was mediocre, all tables generally had to signal to a waiter for service, rather than the staff checking on us.
The appetizer basket was "ok", the main courses (burgers or chicken sandwiches mostly) were bland. There was no salt or pepper, and I could not attract anyone's attention to get any. Most people only ate half their food which should have signaled to the server to ask why ..
On the other hand, the 2 sets of pianists were great, very personable and entertaining, really getting the audience going. They played for a nice long time.

“Great dueling piano bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We have been here a couple of times and had a great time both times. Make reservations because the place was packed to the gills both times we've gone. The drinks are great and the food is typical overpriced bar food. I would plan on eating before arriving and then getting your drink on. The pianists are very talented and are great for more than a few laughs and plenty of singing.
