It is the absolute best place to be to enjoy a fun filled funny and entertaining night out by yourself, with a date, with a crowd as long as they're 21+ bring the whole family!!! The atmosphere and experience is one of a kind no clue or otherwise establishment can even come close to this place the staff there will go above and beyond for you it's one big happy go lucky family. The food is amazing and fast served less than typical wait on service. The servers are always there checking in and accommodating your every need within their means. Hands down best place to be period.

Awesome experience! This is the second time I’ve been. First went on a weekend with some friends, this was just me and my hubby on Thursday night. So much fun! The staff is very friendly and attentive. The owner cane around on the Thursday visit and talked to everyone before the show. Really made us feel welcomed. With a rotating stage there’s not a bad seat!! All of the musicians are very talented and funny. I highly recommend this place any day of the week!!

Friends birthday and requested her name on the board, at the time, it was only a dollar and we gave $5 but it never occurred. We were there till midnight.
Our waitress was awesome and attentive but stretched thin.

Our sibling group, all over 60, went here on Friday night. We had a great time. Loved the show. The musicians were funny and fabulous. The noise level is high so noise cancelling earplugs would be a plus ( I left mine at home, unfortunately) I had the chicken fingers which were delicious. All the drinks were good and fairly reasonably priced. Maybe I wouldn’t order coffee, not really their thing.

The dueling piano bar show was a lot of fun. The musicians are very talented and energetic and played a wide variety of music that kept the crowd entertained. I would suggest everyone visit for the show and drinks!

The food was okay. It's mediocre bar food at best. If you've been drinking for a while, it'll fit the bill. I would suggest not planning dinner around it. I've been to two other piano bars on the east coast that are larger, have much better food, and better service. I was disappointed in the reservation policies. You can only reserve a table through the Open Table website and they charge $2 per seat that does not go towards the cover charge. If you've got a medium to small size group (8 or less), I'd advise showing up early and grabbing a table rather than paying the fee.

Thank you for coming to see us! I'm glad you enjoyed the show and the drinks! We bill ourselves as a dueling piano bar that also serves food and not a restaurant that has music. While we strive to be the best of both, I will say our concentration is serving good food and having exceptional entertainment! Most weekends the show is sold out for early seating, so reservations are only important for those that want a table and a seat. Thank you again for coming and I hope you can make it out soon!

I tried really hard to like this place. The food is just bar food. The set up is really great with the performers slowing turning on the stage. One of the owners was very personable as he walked around before the crowd started. It is clear that they can play very well however, the singing.... every song had the same twang to it. Even songs that shouldn't have a twang. This made the experience pretty horrible and I will not be returning.

Thank you for coming out to see us! I appreciate the kind words about the venue and myself as an owner. We bring in guest players every week so the line up is different. Feel free to look at all of the videos on Facebook. We have some Rockers, some more Country, some more R&Bish, etc. Regardless, I wish you the best and I do appreciate the opportunity we had to serve you. Tony Basford

We reserved seats and were initially put behind a column where we would've only seen 1/3 of the stage. The nachos were marginal and the steak fries like potato chips. We had to ask for napkins, silverware, etc. Music was uninspired. Left after we ate.

Dueling pianos is a fin place to celebrate a special occasion or simply enjoy a night out with friends.

The menu is casual finger food such as pizza, chicken fingers, fried cheese curds and hamburgers as a sampler of the menu. Everything we sampled was done to perfection.

The place is unapologetically noisy. The crowd selects many of the songs and is encouraged to sing along with the players. It’s a terrific place to let your hair down and song and dance like nobody’s watching.

Its a private club do you will have to pay a one time fee of $6 for a membership before entering the first time. It’s a place well worth visiting again and again. Every time you go it’s a new experience

They tried to rip me off! First, they took my credit card to hold open a tab for me. Then when I was ready to leave the waitress told me the credit card machine had quit working and I needed to use the atm to pay cash. That was ok. However, they tried to charge me $2.00 more per drink from the menu price and for more drinks than I had. It was really bush league for a nice establishment! I paid the bill and left. Had a great time there but will never go back!!!

Celebrating our 10 year anniversary we were suppose to come here when they opened but have not been able to make it. I’m glad we finally did make it out. The staff was friendly and attentive. The night starts out with the owner going to ever table thanking you for coming and going over how a dueling piano bar works. The food here is “bar food” burgers, pizza, apps. But the food quality is excellent. We enjoyed our meals and all of our drinks as well as the very talented musicians they were playing all of the favorite songs requested by the audience. One tip is to bring cash there is a cover charge at the door.
