My fiancé and I made reservations last Saturday at 9:15 using the opentable app. However when we got to the club, there was a wedding going on upstairs. We were very disappointed when we showed up as we were looking forward to the live music and some libations. I feel the staff of the club should have notified us they would not be available on this evening, they dropped the ball on this one. We drove 30 minutes to get downtown so we stopped and had a drink at another spot instead!

Kill Devil Club did not honor our reservation. When we arrived, they were hosting a private affair, and blamed the mix-up on Open Table-problems with website. Open table needs to have a much better communication line with the restaurants.

Overall fail on the part of Kill Devil Club. Made a reseverstion and showed up for there only to be a private event. No notice was given by the club and should have suspended reservations if this was the case. I called ahead and no one answered. Waste of my time.

I booked the kill devil for a 30th birthday for my daughter and was very pleased with the atmosphere and the staff. The staff was awesome!!! Thank you Odessa, Fluffy and the entire wait staff for making this a stress free and memorable occasion.I would recommend to anyone. I would have preferred live music, but it all worked out anyway.

Came here for drinks after proposing. The staff was AMAZING! All of the staff came up and told us congrats. They treated us like family and we really appreciated it. They helped make out night very special. NOTE: I gave them 5 stars on food, however I did not eat any of their food. There was just not a N/A option.

For our first time we were HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED!! The website said we would encounter a soft jazz so that we could listen and also carry one a conversation. WRONG. We had to yell just to understand each other. The thing that made us get up and leave after only spending about 20 minutes was: "Our drinks tasted like a mixture of cleaning solvents! Then the fact we paid $14.00 and when my wife was the only one offered a new drink to try and make up for it, the so called wine was watered makeup remover. This is all after we were actually noticed to be waited on. So to answer your survey above - WE WOULD NOT RECOMMEND YOUR ESTABLISHMENT nor WILL WE EVER RETURN. It was a nice building with no romantic feeling, no service and terrible DRINKS. I think we have lasted longer with our $14.00 at a casino then it was at your establishment. Guess thats why they call it "KILL Devil" It killed us and our what was to be our romantic evening. Oh yes we do not live in KC. We actually drove a distance to be at your club. HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED!!

The food was ok. The service was terrible. We started off with a make server who didn't give us a second to complete our order. He didn't stick around. The female server was a lot better. They need more servers considering that there's a lot of big table parties there. We waited forever for drinks and for someone to get our orders. We had to get up and go to the bar to get service.

right off the streetcar stop at 14th and main! this was an all around okay experience, but i was expecting something special from this venue. it seemed like a big empty space with typical 2016 interior. staff seemed new/inexperienced. maybe it's more just a late night drinking club? we left at 10:30 and there seemed to be more people trickling in.

Bar opens at 8pm and there was nobody there when we walked in at 815pm. Service was good at first but when it got busy from an event being over next door, it took us 45 minutes just to get our tab. Horribly under staffed. Poor girl working her first night was overwhelmed when her bartender/waitress trainer left her and stayed behind the bar. We probably won't go back. Drinks were good, but the poor staffing ruined it for our group of 6.

It's not your early cocktail spot. I went at 8pm on a Friday night and was the only one there. Cocktails were ok, but lacked balance. Next time, I'll go later when the music is playing, and I'll probably order a beer.

A place that advertises live music should have live music on a Friday night. This bar was lame. only about 20 people in there, about 15 were with one private party. Complete lack of wine and beer selection too. Not everyone wants rum. Poor selection of food. Was hoping for a nice evening with my wife, drinking wine and listening to music. I will not be back and I advise everyone to not waste your time.

The ambiance was great. Very romantic. The over-sized booths could be overwhelming for just couples. The live band they had the night my husband and I went was pretty good. The Kill Devil Club is obviously to highlight the menu of rum choices and I get that. The food offerings are much to be desired. Not a fan of the Shrimp Spring rolls. Big thumbs up to the "Fleur Diable", awesome cocktail.

I took my wife here for our anniversary, made reservations, and when we arrived at 10:30 on a Saturday night, the table was ready for us. Thought that was nice. The place was dead. At this location on a Saturday night? There were three other tables in there besides us. Not a lively or fun place to begin with. They also advertise Jazz/blues music. The band was playing old rock songs mediocrely. Which is fine, but I wanted to create a romantic atmosphere for this special occasion and this place did not help.

Service was great and liked the atmosphere, etc. We were mistaken to make dinner reservations, thinking there would be more on the menu. More food choices would complete this venue in my opinion. We got something else to eat within 2 hours of leaving. When we left around 8pm, there was one couple there. A band was going to play. I'm thinking maybe the Kill Devil Club is a later night place to hang. The bar is very impressive. Great location. It was a romantic place to celebrate, and have an anniversary coctail.

We booked through open table and had no issues until we arrived. When we arrived there was a bride and groom standing at the door greeting their wedding guests. The club was closed for a private function. This would not have mattered if open table had said that it was unavailable and we would not have looked forward to the night.

We booked based on the menu posted on Open Table. The real menu was about a third of that and mostly appetizers. Music doesn't start until 8:30 or later, and that isn't advertised either. This may be great for a bar scene, but go somewhere else to eat first.

The drinks are definitley the draw to this establishment. Not your average drink selection. I recommend you talk with the bartenders and sample some of the drinks revived from decades ago. Great service and very attentive managment staff. Manager spent several minutes discussing the drink menu and even bought a round of shots for our group. We will definitely be back. Live music on top of all that!

The atmosphere and sleek-city vibe can't be topped. Beautiful place with shutter-style windows and mellow lighting lends to an atmosphere of, perhaps, a 30's jazz club. A nice variety of small plates and some interesting cocktails round out the evening. The focus is on rum and the Kill Devil Club delivers with some great rum cocktail concoctions. Try it, you'll not be disappointed!

The music was spectacular, the dance floor great. The service was horrible. Horrible. It was a Saturday night and they only had one waitress! We had to order our drinks most of the time from the random bar-back filling our waters, which happened rarely. By the time we wanted to leave she was still no where in sight and the bartenders didn't know how to pull up a tab. We all then had to recreate our entire tab for the manager. It was incredibly unproffessional. This is billed as a classy joint and the service made it anything but classy. It's really gone down hill in the last 5 month or so. And the bartenders and manager kept calling me "baby doll." Please.

We came to the Kill Devil club on Saturday, February 15th. The Grand Marquis was playing and they were fantastic.

The service was terrible. We noticed two ladies serving the entire space, minus the bar. Our waitress forgot orders, forgot to input orders, took about 25 minutes per round. We started asking for two drinks per order per person and the waitress forgot to put THAT order in. Asked for the bill. Thirty minutes later she came around to take another drink order and we asked for the bill again and she had forgotten so I asked her kindly to take care of the bill right then and there, which she did.

Very frustrating. Not sure we will come back. Which is sad since we would have spent the entire evening there.

I had contacted The Kill Devil Club about a private birthday party for my fiance. Before the event, the GM Homer, emailed me with several questions so he could learn about my fiance in order to create a customized experience. Well, to cut to the chase, this was an incredibly fun experience. Homer and the rest of the staff are very knowledgeable and fun! The club is also very beautiful with dark wood, leopard rugs and intimate lighting. We stayed for dinner and enjoyed that too.

I was very excited to try The Kill Devil Club with a group of friends for my birthday. 12 of us went and everyone left saying we would never come back. Service is atrocious and non-existent. We literally waited 45 minutes for our drinks. The band plays entirely too loud for a blue jazz feel. If you want to mingle and chat, you better get it done before you enter.

Oh and the "punch bowls..." what a joke! They are giant fish tank bowls but they are only 1/4 fill with tons of ice. For an upscale place, this place fails. I don't seeing it staying in business very long! Save yourself and go somewhere else!
