I had low expectations. I made a reservation for a visit from my 84 year old mom who grew up on swing and loves the regular piano bars. When we first arrived, it was nice to see they had reserved our seats (good idea). The...More

It's so great to hear that your 84 year old mom was "rockin", seriously love that! Thanks for your business, but also for taking the time to post a review. Cheers!

A group of us went to McKey's for some entertainment and I was blown away. The two guys playing and singing were fabulous. They switched off playing the drums, the piano, and singing. They sang every request that we asked for! It was a great...More

Thanks for sharing your experience IppTak. The atmosphere definitely changes when it's a packed house, as the show is very engaging and generated by your song requests. We hope to have you back for a weekend performance. Best, Beth

I took my wife here while at a conference and we could not say enough great things about the show. Who would've thought you could get such value in National Harbor, of all places?? These guys should be playing for $50-60+ pp, not $5 plus...More

This place has so much potential I fall for it every time. Just make some better food and train the bar staff to make a decent drink and things would be 100% better.

Hi Nellie, I'm sorry to hear that you've had less than stellar food & beverage. We've just recently hired a new chef and are hopeful to make our food stand out ALMOST as much as the LIVE MUSIC!

First of all, let's start off with focusing on the food situation. I was here with a group with about 60 people. We had a buffet set up in the back by the bar. The food was average but still pretty good and they had...More

Thanks for the great review Maura! I certainly agree that staying in the NH is a great bonus, why not make a staycation of it if you're a local?

Reviewed 28 March 2017 via mobile

I love live music, and piano bars are always fun because they can play any requested song (or at least try!). It's different here- more like a concert with songs they already have planned out. Forget making any fun requests because they won't even try...More

I'm so sorry that we missed this question. Hope that you came out and enjoyed a show. Our fare is definitely bar food (sliders, dips, pizza), but we do have hummus & wings that are gluten free
