The dueling piano bar was fabulous: the performers were very entertaining and talented. Cover charge is depending on whether you stand or where you seat. I recommend buying a ticket where you are able to sit down although standing at the railing was great: special discount for veterans and armed forces: very nice. The place is alot of fun and...

While on a business trip, our group stopped in to enjoy the dueling pianos. Not too packed on a Tues night...we were able to find a table for our group of 10. The pianists kept the crowd engaged and entertained! Plus when they really stopped to play a song (instead of just fooling around on the piano), they were quite... More

The dueling pianos were a lot of fun. We had the place packed with everyone from a convention staying at the Gaylord, yet service was still decent. The only negative I had were the doormen were rude.

Hi Nixon, Glad to hear that your convention had an event with us, all work & no play isn't good for anyone. I am really sorry to hear that you had a negative experience with one of our doormen, they are usually just gentle giants. Thanks for taking the time to post a review, we def. appreciate it! More

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!

Are you kidding me! At least include a drink in that price. Bring cash if you want to sit down to listen to a couple of wacky piano players. Maybe these guys can play a bigger venue so the house wouldn't have to charge so much per person.

Hi J. Willard, I'm sorry if you felt like our pricing was too high. What we are offering at the cost of $20 is 6 hours of all request live music. Our world class musicians not only play the piano and sing, but they also weave in improvisational humor and keep the audience involved in the show. We appreciate your... More

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.

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
