Outstanding music and venue. Not a bad seat in the place. Plenty of nearby parking. The music ends at a reasonable hour for those older folks who enjoy being home by 1 am.

When I lived in LA, I'd go to the Baked Potato regularly. It's environment, acoustics, and artist roster are unparalleled, and it's compact that you´re at an arm's reach of the musicians, which makes it more immersive. The lack of windows also conseals the sound...More

Great Jazz show! We went to 9.30pm and loved it so much we stayed for the 11.30!! Jacket potato was delicious lots of toppings to choose from and the apple pie for dessert is a must have.

With the closing of Steamers in Fullerton, Charlie O's in the valley this is the last place that you can see real jazz on a nightly basis. While the baked potato leans towards fusion, the place is intimate, friendly, and has great players. As far...More

And I thought Ronnie Scott's was small! Great club which was just about able to stage a big band (John Daversa ) and a packed house. We were pleased that they were happy to allow under 21s in - nightlife for under 21s is very...More

I honestly still don't know 100% how this place operates, i.e. if you show up with a 'reserved' seat where they will put you, where 'reserved' seats really are, etc. That said, the prices are so reasonable, just buy in advance if you know there's...More

Come to see some amazing music and stay for drinks and a baked potato! This is a lovely little intimate spot to spend an evening. The menu is limited - with almost any kind of toppings on a HUMONGOUS baked potato that you can imagine....More

This place is a hidden gem. Go for the music and the baked potato. It's not very big inside so get there early for table seating. We ended up at the bar, but I didn't mind. Staff is friendly and makes everyone feel welcome.
