    This was the best live show I've ever seen. Lonnie is an absolute star performer! He brings so much energy and talent nobody could not be blown away. He plays several instruments, taps, sings & tells some good stories about growing up in the heyday of KC jazz. I highly recommend him! Gary Williamson

    Sunday Funday at Lonnie’s was great! Talya Groves and her boyfriends performed for 3 hours while we ate brunch and drank. Brunch and drink prices were reasonable and tasty. Talya is a great entertainer! This was the second time I’ve been to Sunday Funday. I’ll definitely be back!

    This was a fantastic evening! We've followed the McFadden Brothers for decades and it was great seeing Lonnie and his band performing. Between numbers Lonnie shares a lot of KC Jazz history, tying in the ambiance to the club to history. It was a well spent money! We'll be back!

    Amazing evening! This is a dinner and show experience. The food was super tasty (we had the chicken and pasta options), but the best part was Lonnie and the musicians. Such amazing talent!! So worth the price and time. We had a wonderful night. Whether you enjoy jazz or not, you will LOVE Lonnie!

    Our visit to Lonnie’s Reno Club last night was everything we anticipated and MORE! Celebrating my husband’s 87th birthday, we had long been looking forward to this night out. But we had no idea what we were in for. The superlative talent on that stage, who by the way, played for three hours with only one short break. Lonnie is not only an extraordinary musician, singer, dancer, etc. He treats his guests with a personal touch that makes the audience feel special. This is by far the best place to feel the jazz that made Kansas City famous.

    Where could I possibly start??? Amazing music, food, and atmosphere. Lonnie takes you back in time guiding you through the history of Kansas City’s roots in jazz! His love for the music, his unbelievable talent, and true passion for the history and the art are truly genuine! Anybody traveling through, and everybody living here should experience this! I am honestly speechless!

    We had a great time at Lonnie’s! The dinner was great, and the show was even better. Lonnie and the band were fantastic and so entertaining. The show was part history of jazz, part comedy, and part story of Lonnie - all tied together with beautiful music. Every member of the band is clearly a talented musician in their own right, put together you could see and hear the skill and passion. The dinner was served discreetly by very attentive wait staff. The food was well-prepared, fresh and delicious. Drinks were also well done and very good. The whole experience was a great one. I intend to return with more friends and family and would absolutely recommend the dinner show to anyone looking for something fun and unique.

    I knew this would be good, but HOLY COW. Overall, a 10/10 experience. Lonnie and his band blew it out of the water! High energy and talented musicians that definitely love what they do. Food was delicious. I had the Caesar salad (traditionally made, so if you don’t like anchovies, this probably isn’t for you) but I loved it! For the main course, I had the beef Wellington. It comes with potatoes, and the sauce they top all of it with I could bathe in. My only complaint for this dish is it could have been served hotter. But that’s very minor and an easy fix. Finished off with a crème brûlée and it was *chefs kiss* Complimentary champagne, amuse-bouche, and truffles really added an extra flare of fancy!

    Take yourself back to the roaring '20s and '30s Kansas City Jazz scene with a trip to Lonnie's Reno. A spectacular entertainer with well selected accompanists, Lonnie will keep you laughing and grooving for 3 hours. The dinner is gourmet quality and just the right portions. Servers never miss a beat keeping the courses coming, plates cleared and drinks refilled. Beware of the amply poured drinks reminiscent of the speakeasys of the era. Treat yourself to this experience, you won't be disappointed!

    You can actually experience the jazz world past and present of Kansas City the music the rhythm the enthusiasm makes your heart beat to the rhythm and be blessed by the different talent that you see right before you on stage of such professionalism and giftedness so once in a lifetime experience nothings funny about it it’s all done at a love for music they’re not doing it so much for us the audience but just because it’s inside of them and they have to let it out

    Please visit this gem in KC. Lonnie McFadden is a Kansas City treasure. He always puts on a great show, and if you’re able to catch a show with both Lonnie and his brother Ronald, you’re in for a real treat. Wonderful venue, excellent service, delicious shrimp cocktail. My husband loved the Beef Wellington, and my crab cakes were delicious. We are so lucky to have Lonnie’s Reno Club here in Kansas City. Truly worth every penny!

    Lonnie did a great show making a visit to Lonnie’s Reno Club well worth the trip. Service was great and the staff went out of their way to make our visit memorable. Lonnie’s show, which included stories, music and dance had the whole room alive and engaged for the full three hours of his show. One audience couple came all the way Detroit to see Lonnie. Although the food could use a little work, this is definitely a ‘do over.’

    If you can afford it, please go. It IS a splurge, but you are essentially guaranteed to have a good time. It's relaxing, chill, and swanky without being pretentious. The food was good and the drinks were perfect. It's not something you would do often, so please go and support the band because there's nothing else like it in KC (that I know of). P.S. - it's a small venue anyway, but sitting right up by the stage was the place to be!
