Thanks for the kind review bquack! Just want to make mention that while the show does span all decades, our evening show is only available for guests over 21 (can get a little risqué.) We do however offer monthly Saturday afternoon Family & Teen shows, so yes, a little something for everyone. Cheers! More

Incredibly talented musicians make for a fun and nostalgic evening of nonstop live entertainment. The effortless party atmosphere, great service and reserved seating make it a must-visit when at National Harbor.

We went to Bobby McKey's while visiting our daughter who lives in DC on a Monday night- mostly because we really don't like big crowds and we are kind of cheap. For a $5 cover per person we had a fantastic time. We arrived at 7 and took advantage of happy hour drink prices and an appetizer before the show... More

Really enjoyed the dueling pianos and the music. However it us $10 to get in and $20 or $30 if you want a seat. Yep, I'm serious. They watch the seats and tables like Hawks, so no chance of sitting down if you don't pay. It was a great break from the conference and enjoyed the atmosphere...seating was just ridiculous... More

Hi Tonya, Thanks so much for your review and honest feedback. I'm really glad that the entertainment was so much fun for you! In terms of pricing, the only thing I can say is that a 2 hour film generally costs $12, so we feel fair to charge $20 on a Fri. & $30 on a Sat. for 4 world... More

This is a great bar based around entertainment provided by live piano. On the night we were there it was dueling pianos with pop music and a lot of fun crowd interaction. Very entertaining. There was a cover charge, even for standing room only, but I guess someone has to pay for the talent. Overall it was a lot of... More

My husband and I went on a Saturday night - we sat on the main floor (made reservations weeks ahead of time) at a long table with a bachelorette party and three other couples about our age (in our 40s). Four different musicians rotated throughout the night - sometimes all playing together - all four super-talented. We especially liked Ronnie's... More

First off, when you first enter, you find there is a "cover" charge to get in. Once inside, there are long, lighted piano looking tables and to the left is the bar area. The piano players were really good and talented but if you want a request, you write the song down on a napkin [along with money] to be... More

Stayed in this area for a business conference. My wife and I went with a couple of co-workers and had a great time. The performers were great and did an excellent job of involving the audience.
