First is the atmosphere. You need hours to just see all the memorabilia on the walls and displays. So much country music history. We were there on a Friday night and the (Buck Owens) Buckaroos played old country. Then the band Stampede came on. WOW...More

Hubby wanted to visit here while in California. Had reservations for dinner and a Janis Joplin Tribute show. Wasn't sure what to expect. Dinner was ok. I had a Ceasar salad with chicken, not much taste to the dressing. Drinks were good. Show was fabulous!

The live music was a treasure. The food was great and the price was great for the amount of food and entertainment. If you like live music, schedule during a time there is a band.

My strong hunch is that they are not open on Thanksgiving Day. However, I would call them directly to be sure, and to ask about a special holiday menu. Good luck!
