Horrible music selections, Neil singing vulgar songs and comments while bringing bachelorettes onstage, Neil insulting peoples song requests with vulgar language, all if them drinking excessively leading to the playing being terrible as the night went on. Was planning on booking a party there but changed my mind! Will never return. Left early as well as many other people.

This place is a great little unique hang-out in National Harbor! Within walking distance of many hotels I found this to be a great place. The guys playing the pianos were very talented and quite entertaining! The food and drinks were also quite delicious!

My wife and I went here on a Friday night in February. We were seated at a table with 8 other guests. It was basically what I expected, a good time singing along to the songs and laughing at the jokes. The food was typical bar food. We had the crab dip with nachos. It was a little greasy and...

We had the pleasure of celebrating my friends birthday here. We loved the bar. The dueling pianos are so much fun. The guys playing the piano really keep you engaged. The drinks were good and strong.

The entertainment was really fun - the guys can sing as well as play, and were really making sure the crowd was having fun along with them - they alone are worth the visit. The drinks arrived with lightening speed and we were all set for a great night. But... Despite putting in our food order (for 6 of us)... More

We had reserved seats for 23 and only 21 could be seated, sqooshed together. Had to get extra chairs but there was nowhere to put them. Music is great, drinks good, great entertainment... More

I was so looking forward to taking some important business guests to Bobby McKey's. Had been before and thoroughly enjoyed the show. So - we got there nice and early, were shown to our table. Pleasant server, ordered drinks. Drinks arrived and we ordered food. The pianists came on and the show started. And we waited for our food. We... More

Had never been to a dueling piano bar. Very good service to start the evening. Professional entertainers gave us a great show. The kind of music this baby boomer loves. Younger one around us were having a good time too. Well worth the price of admission. I'll be back.

Our dueling piano bar comes to life with live music on National Harbor's Fleet Street - only a short stroll from the Gaylord Convention Center. Come clap and sing along to our all request show and see what everyone is talking about. We are the ONLY dueling piano bar in the DC Metro area!
