Music was great. The crab avocado salad was pricey, 14 bucks for a salad little bit bigger than a bowl of rice in a Chinese restaurant. Facility definitely promoted the sound of the band, but also the sound of restless kids and idle chatter. But view of the band can be obstructed by the numerous support columns. Beer was of normal prices. So come for the music and beer, but expect pitfalls when eating here, possible noisy people, and annoying viewing obstructions.

I'm puzzled by the critiques of food here. Jazz clubs and kitchens don't always go hand in hand, and when they do, they're always subservient to the music. So, the food is serviceable, and that's it. If you're looking for fine food, look elsewhere. If you want decent chow to tide you over when enjoying Andy's terrific shows, you're in luck.

Highly recommended jazz club.

Nice venue to hear jazz. I had a serving of two mediocre and tiny crabcakes. My server kept disappearing for half hour stretches. I recommend sitting at the bar so you can make eye contact or wave to get served.

Heard good things about the venue, but immensely disappointed. $10 cover. 30 mins of music then 1 1/2 hour break before next set. No info to tell me that there would be such a break. One rude (male) bartender. Nice female bartender. I left. Can't recommend this place. Sorry. Dr. Brown
