The pianists were both good musicians and very entertaining. They kept the audience engaged the whole time while they played and sang. We came after dinner for drinks (which were reasonably priced) so we did not taste their food. Lots of party vans came later...More

My Husband and I took his Brother out for Siblings day and to hear one of their favorite bands. Pleasantly surprised for how great the food was. I had the Chicken Carbonnara par excellence.
