Fun time in a crowded piano bar

They really pack um in, that's for sure. But once you secure your own little spot on the floor and take in the sights and sounds, you can't help but smile. You want a drink? You... read more

They really pack um in, that's for sure. But once you secure your own little spot on the floor and take in the sights and sounds, you can't help but smile. You want a drink? You pay. You want a shot? You pay. There are plenty being sold throughout the crowd all night every night. You want to hear a... More

We didn't have a cover charge going in as it was fairly early in the evening. The ambience was ok and since there were only 11 of us on the bar, the servers were attentive. Liquor: I had a few margaritas. They were watered down. Even after a few, I felt nothing. Music: dueling pianos were cool. The female had... More

This place doesn't open until 7 most nights, earlier on the weekends. These are some really talented people. They seem to be able to play a keyboard, drums and electric guitar equally well. I have a different opinion on the singing. The singers Ed, Martin and Katie are very talented. Some of the others just need to stick to the... More

We went to this place last Sunday night 8/14. I have been to Howl at the Moon in other locations, such as Chicago, Orlando and Destin and had such a great time at those places and have never left before closing. I was given a free coupon from the hotel I stayed so I avoided the $10 cover charge which... More

Came to Howl at the Moon Saloon because we were given coupons to get in free while walking on the River Walk. It was a really fun night out with dueling pianos and live music !

We were there for our anniversary party and Manager did not help or doing anything for my wallet being stolen. He could of shown some concern or offer to watch the video tape or ask the bars or help look but he did nothing but walk off.

When we arrived the music was good and they seamlessly transition from one group to the next... What came next was not always as good though. The waitstaff performed and for a fee you can get your message posted on a glass wall behind the band (until the next paying customer pays $1 more for a new message). Drinks were... More

Ok, so a group from work at a conference essentially made me go to this place. Reluctantly, I got in a cab and decided to give it a shot. The guy running the door was sweet and made me actually want to go into this place. Then I walked in and was hit with a wall of noise and unwanted... More

We had a happy hour party and it was great! The show was awesome, but the place does stink!!! Great drinks and shots, and reasonably priced for the River Walk!
