Great venue for live music. Food is good and the service was great.
Old fashioned supper club meets cool jazz/live music venue! Prompt service, tasty food, the Parmesan crusted walleye was delicious! We ate in the in the bar area, close to the music stage, it was fun to enjoy the food, wine and music.
Brought some business friends here from Indonesia. Awesome food and cocktails, and an experience of live piano lounge music that made my guests know they were special.
My wife and I were there for New Year's Eve and were very pleased. From the service to the food choices to the music in the bar after dinner we were happy with everything. We will most definitely be back.
Four of us went to Crooners for a New Year’s Eve dinner and live music. The four course meal was terrific and the music from the Scottie Miller band was perfect.
Nice place. NYE menu was $50 for a four course meal. Food was good but not great. Lobster bisque and squash bisque were very good but the beef and the cordon bleu both seemed to be missing some complexity. Gravy served with the potatoes was ok but didn't have any depth to it. Chocolate ganache was too rigid and doughy. Bussers seemed to be having a lot of chatter on the floor and not making way for customers. We peaked at the lounge room and the bar area and it is a beautiful place. I looked at the menu and prices seemed a bit steep for the quality of food, on par with Sarna's a few miles a way but $5-10 more per entree.
We were seated in the Fireside room next to the entrance to the Dunsmore (sp?) Room. When the doors were closed the entertainment there made for pleasant background music but when the doors opened to allow passage to and from that room the music overpowered conversation at our table. These were infrequent and brief interruptions which were well tolerated by our group. The butternut squash soup was excellent. Most of the group opted for the crab stuffed walleye and all of them commented on the food as very well or excellent in preparation and taste. I had the chicken which I found to be just slightly over-cooked which resulted in the chicken being a little dry. The accompanying vegetables were excellent. The dessert choices were well received and, judging by the total consumption of the items, were very tasty and not oversized. While one of our group has a peanut allergy our waitress was sure to verify with the staff that his need for nut-free food was recognized and accommodated.
At no time did we feel rushed to complete our dinning experience and enjoyed our post meal conversation.
We were seated at a window table and absolutely froze. At one point a fan came on and blew cold air on us besides the cold air from the window! It was New Year's Eve. It totally overshadowed the rest of our experience at Crooners which was really good.
Food and service was good. We were in the "fireside" room which had a fireplace at the other end of the room and not even viable or on. We were all freezing and kept our coats on the entire time, maybe a space heater in that corner or some outside window coverings might be a good addition. Actually couldn't wait to be done sitting there, thought lounge would be better, but not much.
The service was terribly slow and not a lot of apologies or explanation. This place has great ambiance
And could be great but the service was soooo slow. We were there 15 minutes before a server came to our table and 30 minutes for our first drink. The saving grace was the Erin Schwab show.
