Like hanging out with a bunch of friends – The house band is truly incredible and I was blown away with how talented each member of the band was. The songs are played to perfection! They're all funny and are great at making the atmosphere friendly and care-free. The bartenders are very good at working quickly and you don't have to wait long to get a drink like most bars. The only problem that stands out for me was the $7 cover charge. Overall, a great evening out with friends.

High Energy, Very Interactive, Great Music, Great Crowd – The versatility of the musicians, the welcoming staff and all of the wonderful people I continue to meet keep me intrigued with HOWL. I just can't get enough of the place. This is always a very interactive experience ....a great place to spend an entire evening. I find myself not wanting to go anywhere else (although I have tried other places, I've just not found another place that "rings my bell").

Boring, Rude, Awful – I was told this was a cool place and when I got there there was a $7 cover charge, bothered me a bit. Then the drinks were awful and watery. Then when we tried to move 2 small pub tables together for our large party one guy told us we needed to separate so that staff can move between them then a fat staff member told us we needed to completely move them cause he couldn't get through them. Not my problem...2 different rules. I also put in a song request for Journey Don't Stop Believing and on the request I put that it was my friends Birthday and placed a nice tip on it for it to get played. The announcers said no cause they did not feel like singing that song any other song by Journey they said. Total waste of time for me and I soon left. The most expensive boring night I have ever had. Don't waste your time, please!

It was AWFUL!! – Not only do you waste $7 to get in but the drinks are overpriced and watered down. Not to mention that they won't play the music you request even if you give them a hefty tip. My friend tipped them to sing a song by Journey and they mentioned it out loud and said they didn't feel like singing it. They then proceeded to request people for other songs to sing. SO RUDE!! Don't waste your time or your money!!

It was fun... – Unlike some of the the other reviewers who can complain about anything and review businesses for mere incidentals. This place was wonderful and fun. Every place is not going to be perfect but to give them one stars cause of minor infractions c'mon...you people run your own business and then try to please hundreds of people every night.

What a waste – OH MY GOD! This is without a doubt the WORST piano bar in the US and its not even close. The "musicians" were of junior high level talent and were only in it for money, openly chastising patrons who tipped small, for their "performances", which all were mediocre at best. I saved my money for their ridiculously overpriced and watered down drinks, in which they use only the poorest quality liquor. Bad songs, a bunch of screaming annoying chicks who thought the "musicians" were rockstars or something, and didn't get a single laugh from these talentless "musicians." Apparently the average patron here is a moron with no sense of quality music or comedy. I would not visit again even if they paid me to come. HUGE waste of time!!!!

Rude staff – I'm shocked at how I was treated at this establishment. I came in after work for a drink. I didn't know they weren't open yet because the front door was unlocked. As soon as I stepped inside, the staff was not welcoming in the least. The waitresses just eyed me up and down. Some guy came out of the office and asked "Could I help you?" in a sarcastic and condescending tone. I can't believe a corporate run business that prides itself on customer service could be so outright pretentious. They made me feel stupid for coming there, and I was alone. That should never happen.

Been several times and always enjoy it – I have been several times, for happy hour (which is awesome), just out, and for bachelorette paries, and no matter what time or what the occasion, it is a lot of fun. Happy hour is great there b/c there are not too many people there, and good drink deals. At night, the cover i think is a little much, but it is fine. And the drink although they are good, are a little expensive for the cheap liquer they use. But, i will go back again and again.

Superb Management – I've visited Howl at the Moon several times now and always have a great time. Get there early for seating or call ahead and reserve a table if you are bringing several friends. Ben Barker (Assistant Manager) was a gentleman and scholar who helped accommodate my motley crew, who would otherwise feel a little out of place. I want to thank HATM and Ben for going out their way to make a great night for all!

Thank you,

Fernando

Best place to be on a Sat Nite – Me and my family went out last fri nite to howl at the moon. We all had fun. At first some of us were like this is not for us, but after a while we started liking it. The atmosphere is loud. I do like the sing along espically hearing ppl trying to sing when their drunk. lol. If u r a sensitive person then this place is not 4 u. Bc the guys do talk dirty but all n good fun. I enjoyed myself so much that Im thinkin bout going again tonite. And they have this "Bucket" for 22.00. Man its worth it. Its a big bucket w "hurricane" n it, there r 6 straws & everbody drinks out of it. Its worth the price.
