Music was outstanding. Service was great. Food was okay. Went with friends and their daughter. Great experience for teenagers, but not sure younger kids would like it.

Went here with 5 friends to take in the show. $15 cover at the door to get in (which was good because with St. Patrick's day festivities it kept the riff raff out. The entertainment was good and fun. The emcee was a blast from the past and in between songs used his radio voice to run old fashion advertisements... More

We were able to get last minute reservations for a Friday night seating and happened to get a table right in front. The band playing (Charlie Ballentine Group) was excellent. The food is good, although fairly basic. The taco trio was delicious! The jazzerac cocktail is also a winner - bourbon & absinthe...wow! Tables have a 2 hour maximum and... More

The night was great, we managed to get a table to eat even thought the place was full. The ceviche wasn't at all great, contrary to others reviewers. The food was just OK. Both music performances were awesome.

Grumpy and I have different views on this one. He thought it was upscale when it comes to the food and cleanliness and it wasn't a dive jazz club. He says, however, the dive jazz clubs are where you find the good musicians. The Old Lady, your's truly, thinks it looked like a bar started by a Millennial that has... More

You pay a ten dollar cover to enter, then you just order your food and drinks and enjoy the jazz. Live music. Food is regular, but ok. They offer some local beers.

It starts 7-9.30 Pm live jazz band in the nice atmosphere.15 $ entree fee but it is worth it. You can take also coffee and desserts. You should choose for two hours for table or bar..

Good acoustics and good band. Reasonable cover for early show without dining in main room, but at bar view can be obstructed. Great time and nice place to enjoy some good music

The service here is great, went two nights running. Great beer and the food is good and well-priced. The first night two great bands. The second night one great band and one band that sounded like a bunch of instruments falling down a lift shaft!
