We bought tickets for my husbands 50th, 15 of us. We arrived on time, 8pm and were excited to get the party going. Unfortunately the service was just terrible. The waiter not only ignored us most of the night, but truly could not give a damn. I had to get up and go to the bar to get drinks all... More

We went there on a Friday night and spent $41 for seats. We had enjoyed a similar place in Texas many years ago. First of all, the service was really good and the staff was always checking on us. While we really like a party as well as anyone, it was no fun having our chairs and backs bumped constantly... More

Our company rented this place for an evening event. There was plenty of room for everyone but the food was very marginal. The service at the bar was terrible given we were spending a significant amount of money.

Thanks for the feedback 1WingNow. Disappointing to hear that we didn't measure up in service and food, I know that we can do better. My apologies for not exceeding your expectations, our goal is to go above and beyond, so clearly we have room for improvement. More

The guys playing 1/25 rocked! They were talented, funny as hell (keep the kids at home!), and played my request for Dion & the Belmont The Wanderer! Made my night! You guys have no idea!

Thanks for the kind review Jennifer! We are always working to grow our weekday business, so glad to hear that a Wednesday night rocked. Not to worry about the little ones, our evening shows are for 21 and over only. We rein in our inappropriate humor for our monthly Family Day show ;) More

Came here last month with a group for a friend's birthday. She'd been here before, enjoyed it, and gave it rave reviews. I, however, have a different opinion. The seating we had was reserved, which worked nicely since a first come policy might have soured the experience; it got packed around 8pm. You do pay for tickets, about $30-40, or... More

Thanks for taking the time to post such a detailed review and offer some constructive criticism. Our entrance prices range from $5 and cap at $30 per person depending on the night of the week and weather or not you'd like a seat. We are certainly happy to take requests for tables, but it really comes down to the number... More

We plan on making this a monthly night out - amazing fun providing requests and having the team at the pianos play and sing an outstanding rendition of the song! They were funny, engaging, and talented - we had a great time interacting with the pianists/singers. They announced our anniversary and played our song - we danced for the audience.

Had a good Friday night with friends. The wings were delicious and the drinks were good. The service was excellent along with the dueling pianos which was occasionally accompanied by drums, a guitar and keyboards were very entertaining as they filled song requests from the audience. It was fun to sing along and dance to the music, as they recognized... More

This place is not where you go to have a quiet night out. With jello shots, beer towers, and all things alcholic along with at least four performers rotating out between the two pianos, drumset, and other instruments you can't get bored. People watching alone is worth coming to the piano bar. This place is not for the feint of... More

This place saved our night! After a let down at MGM we ventured here it was so much fun!! Only suggestions are put alcohol in the jello shooters and it was so uncomfortably hot in there compared to other bars.

Glad to hear that we could salvage your evening, thanks for venturing down! Sorry to hear that you were subjected to a sweat lodge, I hope that you let a manager know so that we could turn the heat off. Lastly, I hope that you didn't have too many of those jello shooters (they are deceivingly strong.) ;) We really... More
