    Make a reservation for 9PM seating Saturday. House band never disappoints and the comedians are usually pretty funny before the band starts.

    If a party of 2, come in as early as possible to the show to spot a table closest to the stage. Best way to experience!

    The house band played a lot of classic numbers. Rock, Latin, pop, reggae, the works. Be prepared to pay a $10 music charge

    Bring earplugs if you don't want to be half-deaf in the morning.
  • Katherine T.
    Best. House band. Ever. If you haven't heard them you don't know what you're missing. If you get there for the first set you can enjoy the place before it gets crowded. Bring earplugs: it gets LOUD.

    You come for the music, you stay for the music. Can get a little (read: immensely) loud. Food is passable, and cocktails are decent, if overpriced.

    The place is awesome. All the tables are comfortable and you can see better the scenario. You have to pay $5 for cover and they accept people under 21.

    The shuznik! Bring your dancing shoes and prepare for a great night. The band is tight as is the area you'll be in so prepare to get real familiar with some strangers.

    It was good enough for Jimi (Hendrix) so it's good enough for me. Food, location, entertainment. It all works. Check it out when you get a chance.
