The wait staff here use tablets to place orders and servers bring them out in record time. The piano players on the night I went were not the best but were entertaining none the less. The sound system is very good and overall the atmosphere is a lot of fun.

Went here late with some convention friends. There was a private event before that we followed. The piano players were very good and the environment was definitely fun. Nothing too special about the bar or the drinks...pretty standard. Attraction is definitely the entertainment.

We had so much fun at Bobby McKey's for our friends bachelorette party. Our waiter was amazing and never let our drinks run out. We even made friends with one of the bouncers who helped us find our Bride's missing phone. The guys on the pianos knew every song and they were amazing.

We have been to Bobby Mckey's many times since it opened and it never fails. We took two newbies and they had a blast. Great drinks, music and overal just a good night. Definitely recommend getting a table so that you can enjoy the night!

Dueling pianos can be a lot of fun - if the players are really good. I guess National Harbor doesn't attract the best.... Boring beer selection

If you have never visited a dueling piano bar and you are in the area, go here. The age range of the people here were young to old...literally a couple was celebrating a 60th anniversary here. It was so much fun. The two guys playing piano were hilarious and so entertaining, not to mention really good musicians. This is a... More

Was at a big convention at the nearby Gaylord National Hotel and attended a happy hour at this bar. Not very impressed. The space was dark and felt pretty grimy--sticky floors, counter-tops. The food they provided for our event was below-average bar food. Drinks were nothing special--very basic beers and wines. Perhaps I was there too early in the evening... More

This place has a very fun atmosphere! It lasted right up to closing time with the dueling pianos. A great place to have fun and listen to some music!

Reservations made easily, quick check-in seating. Pre-Ordered food came even better than expected. The wait staff was fantastic in spite of the size of the crowd (it was a Friday night the place was PACKED!). The beer stays VERY cold in those towers. Reading some of the reviews makes me kinda sad for the stuffed shirts of the world --... More

We wanted a fun night out in the national harbor area since we had never been before even though we live right near it, and this definitely did the trick! The entertainment was amazing... seriously these guys are great musicians! There is a cover charge but you're paying for hours and hours of live music and when I tell you... More
