    The food is not good. I wish they would just clear out all the tables here and replace them with a bunch of tall boys and open space. Pay for the music. Don't pay for the food.

    Skip the food, order beer and listen to some good Jazz. Which last night show was more New Orleans and less Denver but it was good nonetheless.

    Good Jazz. Absolutely. But the food was so so bad. Also the servers forgot our drinks. For the price they should do much better.

    So far the music hasn't started yet, but the food is terrible, worse than a diner! The chef has no idea what French toast or even sunny side up is! I never thought that was even possible.

    Very nice music but DONT GET BAR SEATS. The bar is small and in a bad location, you will be standing and might not even have a view of the stage. I highly recommend paying more to get a table seat.

    The staff also knows magic: if you buy 4 seated tickets to the show in advance, watch the fourth seat disappear when the staff seats a stranger at your table. Classy.
