Fun for all ages! Casual. Our teenagers sang along. The cost was very reasonable. Sharing meals was acceptable.

5 seats at the bar plus about a dozen tables. Piano music Wednesday - Saturday starting at 6:30. We stopped in for their margarita on the Santa Fe Margarita Trail which was excellent. Great atmosphere and service. Can’t wait to go back and back!
