    We have been there several times before and enjoyed both the food and entertainment. This particular night the service was really slow...don't know if they were operating a person or two in wait-staff short or not. It didn't make a big diff since this was our destination. You can hear some great local jazz and music artists here.

  • Disappointed in KC

    Dined on 11/15/2014
    On a recent trip to KC, my husband and I went to Broadway Jazz Club. Unfortunately, it was not a good experience. First, we were seated and then asked to move to another table about ten minutes later. Our waitress/server was not knowledgeable about any items on the food menu. My husband had steak and I had the shrimp. Both were very mediocre. When ordering cocktails, the bar was out of my first two choices (no grapefruit juice - really?). The cocktails were definitely not worth the $12 price tag. The jazz was good but the other customers were loud. Would not recommend for food or music. We were disappointed.

    A little live jazz music during brunch can make for the start of a great Sunday. Food is great. Watch out though, that Bloody Mary can be a bit spicy. :)

    We booked the table late in the afternoon on a Saturday and got a great table in sight of the musicians. This was the debut of Ron Gutierrez at the club and it was wonderful. The service provided by Darcy(not sure of the spelling) was outstanding. She checked on our needs multiple times throughout the evening. Luckily, we felt no pressure to leave the table. The food was tasty,hot and very satisfying.

    Broadway Jazz Club recommended by a Kansas City resident. We came from Topeka to celebrate a birthday. We heard that Ron Gutierrez was making a debut the evening of November 8th. Glad we came as he and the Charles Williams Quartet were great performers. In combination with outstanding menu items and the servers who assisted us we could not have asked for a better birthday celebration. We hope to be back soon!

    We had mixed reviews on our food orders around the table. Some really good, some good enough but will order something else next time. Their drinks don't shortchange you on potency. Always felt like the price tag was justified on our martinis. The music was great, and that was the reason we landed here in the first place.

    I go for the jazz and they have a good sound system and set up to enjoy it. That said, I've always had either dinner or dessert and been impressed-the food holds its own too. This last time I was alone, so sat at the bar. The bartenders, Lynn and Steve, were friendly, fun and good. Loved watching Steve make specialty drinks. Nice to have a place I can go to on my own when all my friends are booked.

    Good live music for a Sunday morning. The food was ok. The table next to mine ordered the same Eggs Benedict and it looked entirely different and much better. Good waitress, but her instructions were ignored by the kitchen on my order. I would go back just for a nice Sunday morning at a reasonable price.

    We visited the Broadway Jazz Club on Sunday for their brunch. The food was great, the service fantastic, and the jazz artist was the best. We had a great time and when we are in the area again, plan on going to the Broadway Jazz Club at night and check out that vibe.

    This place has pretty good food--a lot better than you might expect from a pure jazz club. At least for brunch, it exceeded my expectations in every way--it was cleaner, had better ambiance, better food, great service (incl. accommodating kids), and great music.

    I attended Sunday Brunch, didn't know how the food or anything was going to be. Read about 'The Broadway Jazz Club ' Sunday Brunch on the website. I was pleasantly surprise! The jazz group was wonderful, the food was good, however, I would suggest having fresh brewed coffee instead of instant. The service was okay, good for the number of people in the restaurant and having only (2) servers. Overall it was a good experience and I had a good time! Yes, I would go back! ;-)

    The Broadway jazz club as a great little find if one is looking for a varied selection of talented jazz performers in Kansas City. I recently attended a performance by a female ensemble led by Angela Hagenbach and backed up by a quartet of very talented musicians. They were outstanding in every way and it was so nice to discover them-they need to be better known in this city and I believe the Broadway Jazz CLub is undertaking a much needed void in this city by presenting some of the great talent that Kansas City has to offer.

    We went on a triple date to celebrate my parent's 25th anniversary. The food was amazing and the artists were superb. It was a great time to unwind and catch up with one another. Our waitress was a little slow with bringing our bottles of wine, taking our order, and refilling water. However, it did not ruin our night. Wonderful time!

    We had solid service while here. It got a little chaotic during set breaks, but that made sense. We tried the beef kabobs (delicious), the wings (very little to no wing sauce, but good fried wings), and potato soup (I liked it a lot, but my husband thought it had a little more sour cream than he'd like - which is any). The martinis weren't cheap but were well made, and I generally don't expect a cheap martini in the first place. The music was great (Millie Edwards) and at a good volume level. We definitely plan to go back and try even more of the menu!

    We had been to Broadway Jazz Club in the evening previously and were intrigued by a Jazz Brunch. It was great! The menu selection was outstanding. It will take several more trips just to try the dishes that made the final selection difficult. The staff was attentive and friendly. The entertainment was great, as usual for BJC.

    This was our first visit to the Broadway Jazz Club. The music (Angela Hagenbach) was great. The drinks were fine. The food was less than average. We had some small plates - lamb pops, chicken wings, fried seafood, and truffle fries. It was greasy, overcooked, and way overpriced. We may come back to see future entertainers but will definitely have dinner elsewhere.

    We discovered the Broadway Jazz Club because we're big fans of Molly Hammer and she was appearing there. However, I must say that we've dined in a lot of places in KC and hands down, the BJC has the best steak in town! The service is excellent - attentive but not intrusive.
