Half Note is Highly Recommended
I had guests visiting from Florida and wanted a place to take them that would provide a little entertainment and dinner for the evening. Half Note was recommended. The decor, food and service made a lasting impression on all of us. Not only would my husband and I go to Half Note again, we will recommend it to others.

Half Note....but a WHOLE experience
The Half Note has the look and feel of any big metopolitan city tuck away in the suburbs. The staff was exceptional. The clientel was mature and hip (telling my age with that word) and the price scale I believe is competitive. The decor was fabulous!! Loved it! Loved it! The food was good but not great. The background music was extremely loud causing everyone to yell just to talk to the person seated next to them. I would patronize Half Note again, however I would not become a regular as I find it to loud to socialize. The band was great after the sound guy worked out the kinks. Overall a good experience.

Excellent service and food
Excellent service and food -- My first time there for Sunday brunch -- The waffles melted in your mouth -- Everything was fabulous -- Warm and friendly environment -- Great for small or large gatherings -- I was there with two others and I noticed, couples there for romantic outings, and family/friend gatherings of about 20 -- Seems to perfect for small and large gatherings.

The Half Note is definitely
The Half Note is definitely a great place for dinner, live entertainment, as well as brunch. I’ve enjoyed dinner and the live entertainment on more than one occasion. This visit was actually my first time having brunch and it was absolutely amazing. We were greeted with a smile as soon as we entered and were escorted to your table where we were professionally and courteously greeted by your waitress. Our waitress was extremely attentive to us and seems to know exactly when she was needed. Our table was immediately cleared when required. An out-of-town friend joined me and had great things to say as well. Half Note is now at the top of my list for great places for Sunday Brunch.

My visits have only been during the Sunday brunch service which ends later than most restaurants. The service is fine and the price is reasonable. The menu is not as extensive or ranging as most but there's always waffles and crab legs.

My husband and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and my son graduating from high school and we had some out of town guest that wanted to join us for dinner. So wanted to find a place that was close to where they were staying, and I found this restaurant. We went on a Tuesday night, which was Karaoke night. We had a wonderful time there. I just wished that they would have acknowledged our special events while we were there. I put it in the notes when I made reservations on OpenTable.

Potential To Be The Best In Town
Half Note Lounge is a quality restaurant/music lounge that most people would enjoy immensely and I definitely will return to dine there. The theme/concept, atmosphere, decor, and organization is exceptionally nice and well managed; and the food is excellent. Although it was nice seeing the young and vibrant wait staff at work, they appeared to be under trained and non customer-service oriented. I gave their service a 3 star rating (Good) because I felt that their overall service was better than 2 stars (Fair). I wish I had the option to rate them at 2.5 because the service was between fair and good.

I wasn't thrilled about the Sunday buffet. I expected a better quantity in the food. Fish was fried too hard. The eggs hard and dry.

Ask for Chris the GM
Excellent food, great ambiance and outstanding entertainment. Sometimes there are challenges with wait-staff experience but this night was exceptional. The service was excellent. The GM took care of my changing reservations to half hour later. He was very courteous and accommodating. His name is Chris and he is certainly an incredible asset for Half Note. You probably won't have issues, but if you do, you should probably ask for him.

Food Needs Work
Great place for live music. This was my second time at the lounge. Our mussels were great, but we had to send back one entree, and the shrimp and grits I ordered, were bland and cold. The service was great but they really need to work on the food issues.

one of my favorites
This is definitely a diamond in the rough. I have been coming to this establishment for years and every time I have a great experience. I am a seafood person so I love the crab cakes and the spiced up tartar sauce that accompanies it. I went on ladies night and the drinks were AWESOME! Will definitely be turning few people on to this spot .... or I may just keep it to myself.

Great Place and worth the drive
Had a wonderful time celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary. Love the fact that they are not a big place but I do recommend getting a reservation in very early. Enjoyed the band and atmosphere.

Vibrant life, great scene
The Half Note Lounge is a gem in the area North of D.C., a very place to listen to music, sit at the bar, or have a nice dinner with reasonable food and wine. We were there on a Tuesday with Karaoke going on all evening - and some really great singers showing up. A birthday party had brought a great group of people, the waiters were excellently friendly, and watching the energetic life go on made the evening very special. The menu has enough breadth to have something for many different tastes and the quality is solid. But the best is the scene, the people, the life that is enfolding in there. I'll definitely return the next time I am in the area and will sit there and enjoy.

Although it does not have
Although it does not have a humongous buffet, it is a nice selection. The food I doled out by servers. Probably to limit people being wasteful. Hot waffles, omelette bar, perfectly cooked shrimp and sweet crabs make this place a great destination for brunch.
