We were in town for a bachelorette party. 11 of us had tickets for the Saturday (8/20/16) show. Between the amazing entertainment, beer towers and awesome atmosphere this was certainly a place for us all to remember!

Went for a birthday party. Great atmosphere. The talent exceeds those at other establishments such as Howl at the Moon or Jellyrolls. The players knew every song requested. Staff was fantastic. Service was prompt and very courteous. Will definitely encourage friends to go there.

Really fun time! Lots of singing and laughs in a typical bar setting. You pay money to have your requests played and they play a snippet and get everyone to sing along. Pianists were awesome!

Visited for Happy Hour, lured by the discount on the hotel key. Observations, which you can judge for yourself: - About 8 types of beer on tap. IPA was the darkest. - $5 cover during Happy Hour (waived for the hotel key). - Drinks served in plastic. - Very limited food. Essentially a dozen or so versions of 3 sliders... More

Thanks for visiting us during our '60% off drinks' Happy Hour FJVLS. Sadly, you came to our dueling piano bar and missed our creme de la creme. Obviously we feel the HH pricing is attractive, but can't even hold a candlestick to our all request live music show. Please send a note to beth@bobbymckeys.com and I'd happily invite you to...

I have been there twice after work. It is a place where you will have a good time as long as you go with a group of friends. The pianists are talented and always eager to please the crowd. Of course, tips are their primary revenue source. If you want them to play your tune, expect to pay for it.... More

I went to a reception at Bobby McKey's during the National Drug Court Conference last year. The food was average quality, nothing memorable for me. The piano players were very talented, however as the evening went on they kept milking the crowd for higher tips. It was an okay experience but I would only want to do it once every... More

Our group had a great time singing along with the pianists. The guys put on a grea show and involve the audience. It is well worth the cover charge to get in. The drinks were good and not priced differently than surrounding bars. The servers were attentive. We didn't eat but the menu had many choices. Take a group and... More

This place does charge a "cover" once the evening begins. They do have a happy hour, so arrive on the early end for deals. Post-happy hour drink prices and food prices are a bit steep. Service is good. The atmosphere is what you make of it. The piano players are good, but are constantly asking for higher tips. Between drinks... More
