I have been visiting Howl at the Moon for the last 3 nights. The service is good and it is very much a good times bar. However the quality of music is questionable, especially some of the singers. There is a girl piano player who is very good. There is a bald singer musician who is an excellent musician but cannot sing. It hurts your ears. On our second night the music degenerated into a shouty noise. Tonight was my wife’s last night in Orlando and she wanted to go somewhere with music and the possibility of dancing. It is very quiet in Orlando on a Sunday night! We gave Howl at the Moon a last try. To try and secure some songs from this century we put in 3 requests and paid US$20 to do so. Two songs are well known- Sugar by Robin Schultz and Let me take you Dancing by Jason Derulo. As a curve ball we asked for Eleanor by Hot Chip, arguably the best song of this year. The band took our money, didn’t say they didn’t know our requests or ask for alternatives. They played an Ed Sheeran song and that was it. When we said we wanted something current the best they could do was a song with the lyrics from Mary Poppins! . When I went to the stage to ask for something with a dance beat and melody I was asked to leave because I was causing a problem.. By the way apart from the girl with glasses none of the other performers can carry a tune in a bucket! While the music may appeal to drunks and people without taste it is severely lacking for me. Go to Aux Trois Mailletz in Paris. Infinitely better.

We were a large party and needed to reserve tables for the group. Well, a dinky 4 seater is $100 just for the reservation. We all jammed together shoulder to shoulder around tiny high tops. It was very uncomfortable to say the least. Several of our group stayed from 9 until 2am and never got a request played in spite of paying a substantial tip. They revel is getting people to out bid each other to get messages posted on the mirror behind the musicians. Like to pay $!00 for a message? Well if someone up bids you that msg in gone is two minutes. It's a clever way to make money but basically say FU to the customers. I guess since most are tourists they don't much care.
The music was loud, energetic, fun, and the place was packed. I guess I can't blame them for taking the suckers for all they are worth, but they won't hit us up again.

What a fantastic night!
The entertainment was excellent, drinks were delicious and the service great too.

We visited on 3 separate nights because we had such fun.
There is a cover charge from 7pm on a weekend and 8pm in the week. It's worth every penny though.

The musicians really get everyone going and laughing.
Requests are encouraged - as long as your requests are well-known and upbeat it's likely they'll be played.

Highly recommend this to anyone looking for something different to do in the evenings!

Does not post correct hours. I made plans with multiple friends who all drove over an hour to meet me here, and was told they were closed for a private event. I called before showing up and checked hours on the website, apparently they close randomly without advertising. Very frustrated to have driven so far to go (my friends as well) and be turned away when they don’t advertise their hours appropriately. Never coming back to this venue again and I do not recommend anymore, you cannot trust their posted hours.

We visited on Saturday October 23 and reserved early for the happy hour party. We usually make it there once or twice a year, and this time did not disappoint. We found some great seats at the bar and were there from about 7:30 till 11:30. All of the bartenders were great, quick, and attentive..but we had Rob for most of the night. He did a great job and really made the night fun! We will definitely be back and asking for Rob on our next visit. Thanks for the great night!

My wife and I were in town on business. One of my coworker suggested we give this place a try. We were so happy we did. They do have a 10.00 cover charge, however they had a complimentary food buffet. The food was ok. We had a blast for the rest of the evening. I would definitely recommend you give them a try. To the management, can’t wait till you guys open in Fort Lauderdale.

On the 17 December around 9pm i didn't have a good experience in howl of the moon, .. I couldn't even get it. I came all the way from Europe to Orlando. Going to this place was one of the things I wanted to do for a friend of mine, who used to work there playing drums and had a good memories. So I walked around 3klm from my hotel to get there , I got some pictures from outside and i sent it to my pal, he was so excited, so I decided that maybe I could get it and take a video or something for him.. I observed there was a guy there , like bouncer or something like that , a big man and he was just literally asking for ID .. when I got there he said : what are you doing here? With ID in hand I said I had a friend who used to work here like 10 years ago and I would take video , pic or something for him. He totally looked disgusted said : Whaaaaaat?!!? You are not going anywhere, he was extremely rude. You are not going inside to take any pictures so get out. I don't know if that was racist or something but it didn't really make sense. So if I say I'm going to have a beer then I can take a picture I believe.. like everyone does.. and to be honest more than likely I was gonna take a seat a have probably a drink. Anyways, I totally felt discriminated, I didn't even argue with that big man.. I come to Orlando pretty often and I always stay around this area but I DO no where I don't have to go again. I went miller's pub, writing this review, had a beer and I will left the staff a good tip because they welcomed me. A money that you actually lost for the friendly big bouncer you have outside, maybe could be better to look for a better and more efficient staff to welcome your guests.Very rude staff, it was embarrassing Thank you

Howl at the moon has no management oversight. An employee has the power to do as he pleases with the customers. On Saturday, my visiting friends were asked to leave the premise because they were standing at the bar that was "reserved". The bar had no signs or a rope indicating that it had been reserved. The seats at the bar had a rope with a reserved sign, but my friends did not sit there nor were they near the seats. An employee named Christian Dominguez asked my friends to leave the area. After asking my friend and his wife to leave, Christian Dominguez wanted to explain why he was asking them to leave, and my friend stated that he was not interested on the explanation and proceeds to leave. After about 3 minutes, Christian Dominguez approached my friends again, now standing in the main area, and asked them to leave. My friend asked if it was because he had not been interested in the explanation, it was no fair. Christian Dominguez offered no explanations. He continued to say "you need to leave". He brought a bouncer. My friends asked to speak to the manager, but Christian Dominguez refused. Kicked out by an employee who felt like being powerful and used his authority knowing that a manager would not be called. That is no way to treat clients, and I hope that a manager at Howl at the moon reads this note and contacts me, so I can let that manager know wrong it was. An employee should not have the power to ask anyone at any moment to leave. It should be done at the discretion of a manager. How al the moon has lost a few patrons.
