We didn't eat here but really enjoyed the piano bar and hot tea or coffee after dinner. There was no cover and no pressure to purchase more beverages or food. I forget the pianist's name but he was wonderful...lots of 60s and 70s music; very...More

Doug is master entertainer. Adept at any and all music. A true showman. But try to avoid Sunday night when Doug graciously has an open mic approach, allowing audience members an opportunity to sing. Many are hardly qualified to entertain or insist on singing so...More

We had heard about the pianist, Doug Montgomery. He's talented, and played a wide range of melodies- from Chopin to As Time Goes By to more recent show tunes. Just going there to have a drink and listen to him is well worth your time....More

No, this time of year you will not need a reservation. There is a parking lot for the cafe as well as for the hotel.

Description
"Nowhere else has better basics - straight-ahead steak, lamb, fresh fish, chicken & gargantuan mounds of onion loaf - than this Continental-American Steakhouse; but fantastic food is not the only draw - the festive atmosphere includes a way cool, crowded piano bar..." If great continental food in fine dining and casual dining with friendly atmosphere and world class live entertainment are your priorities, come to Vanessie. Fireplaces, exciting art, spaciousness, and lots of live music make Vanessie a local favorite.
