Good piano bar, Terrible sports bar
If you're going to call yourself a sports bar, at least have some sports to watch in it. I asked the bartender if they could put on the NHL game, and, after ten minutes of searching through the channels, couldn't find it. She then came up to me and said "I'm just a girl, I don't know what I'm looking for." She asked ME to help her find the channel. After going through the channel guide with her, I found it, but they didn't subscribe to it. I went back to my beer and then someone else wanted them to put on the NBA game. They didn't get that either. Apparently, they only have games shown on local channels and ESPN, which still took forever for the girl to find.
The piano player was good, and the beer was alright, but if you want to watch a game, go somewhere else.

A W*nk Night Out, Guaranteed
Quite simply one of the worst bars I've been to in many years. The food is dreafully bland, lacking any character - if that's Mexican food, I'm a Chihuahua. The service was equally poor - the lass was clueless, timid and ought to go back to Burger King pronto. Then the comedians - ah, those wannbe funny guys. WelI, I spent the first act (I use the term "act" very losely) peeling a paper coaster apart in my angst as the pigmy-brained moron with the mike spent 15 minutes offering nothing except verbal d*arrhea. Ok, it will get better, right? No, no and thrice no. We then had the main man - some bofoon from Portland (who claims to have entertained US troops in Iraq), predictably with cap on backwards, slugging Bud, took it on himself to spend at least 30 minutes boring the t*ts off virtually everyone in the room, and even refused to step down several times at the request of the host. I once thought Portland to be a right-on town - jeez, they must have some pretty shoite trailer parks down there. If you like regurgitated bile, he's your man - and he even couldn't resist offering that classic "when in jail, watch your a**e" chestnut. Frankly, I only stayed just to see how BAD it could get - and I've seen worse natural disasters in sub-Saharan Africa, my friends. Oh, he even tried to plug his dull CD - you couldn't pay me to give it a glance, let alone abuse my CD player with its presence. Could this guy be the cause of our troops' post-deployment mental problems???? I think I may have the answer, Vets Admin.

So, I actually feel most sorry for the piano guys. They are actually very talented, and managed to blend the fun of the music well with a few "games" on stage. They ought to kick the woman out of bounds, though - she's not up to scratch. So, don't come hungry and don't come for the "comedy" hour - it will ruin your weekend. I'm still recovering, but writing this has eased the pain.

Terrible place
lame atmosphere, show was OK, but the bouncers and wait staff are the worst!! incredibly rude so-much-so i'm writing my first ever review to encourage you NOT to go there. Try Chopsticks in Queen Anne, much more fun.

Fun show, terrible, terrible food and service
The show alone deserved 5 stars but since we did more then just the show have to rate it at all. Went Friday night and paid $10 cover for the comedy and piano show, pretty good deal. Got there at 7:30 and they didn't have our reservation. No big deal as only a few other tables were occupied. Got a seat then waited 15 minutes for waitstaff to stop by. It was our waitresses first day so cut her some slack, at first, but she sucked. Had no idea what was on tap, brought a drink we didn't order, didn't place all the food order, couldn't get the bill right. The drinks were tasty though. Food is bar food but AWFUL, disgusting. It arrived stone cold and sitting in piles of grease. Plus they brought the potato skin appetizer with the meal and it was terrible. Basically took 6 french fries, scattered a couple bacon bits and a huge scoop of sour cream, that was $8.... While you don't except dynamite food at a bar, with maybe 20 people in attendance the cooks weren't busy. Plus it was $10 - $15 per plate so not cheapie fast food. Around the table ordered: cod and chips, burgers, ribs and chicken fingers, caesar salad. On the bill they charged us for the drink we didn't order and sent back, wrong price on fish & chips (special was $8 and they charged each at $14). Different waitstaff had to keep checking on us b/c the waitress just disappeared then had to clock out for the night. She said gratuity (18%) was included since we were a party of 6 or more so we didn't add more, heck if possible would've given her 10%, then the bar manager comes over and says we have to add tip! Then they came back and said they couldn't find the credit card charge and had to fun it thru again. We saved all the receipts 'cause not sure this will end up good. Drinks were yummy but expensive, $11 for house liquor mixed. Draft beers were $5 each. The did run a couple drink specials during songs which was cool. The show was a blast, Casey, one of the players is extremely talented.

Best piano bar I've been to in Seattle
I've been here twice and enjoyed both times. I've been to the Howl at the Moon in Orlando several times, and while I don't think this one is as high energy, the piano players will at least play your song without making you put down a 20. It's much cleaner than several other bars I've been to, and you can generally find a seat as long as you don't have a huge party. Saturday nights are pretty insane, but I thought it was a good crowd and everyone was friendly and in a good mood. The bartenders will make just about anything, and the piano players are pretty talented. They played some pretty random songs that I had never heard of, which is a testament to their talent, but sometimes they are slaves to a lame crowd and have to play the crowd's lame requests (which I really can't fault them for).
