Doug is master entertainer. Adept at any and all music. A true showman. But try to avoid Sunday night when Doug graciously has an open mic approach, allowing audience members an opportunity to sing. Many are hardly qualified to entertain or insist on singing so...More

Let me start by saying we highly recommend the piano bar! We went on a Sunday night. We arrived around 6:15 and found a table right next to the grand piano. The world renowned Doug Montgomery was playing and began playing promptly at 6:26. We...More

We had heard about the pianist, Doug Montgomery. He's talented, and played a wide range of melodies- from Chopin to As Time Goes By to more recent show tunes. Just going there to have a drink and listen to him is well worth your time....More

No, this time of year you will not need a reservation. There is a parking lot for the cafe as well as for the hotel.

Description
"Nowhere else has better basics - straight-ahead steak, lamb, fresh fish, chicken & gargantuan mounds of onion loaf - than this Continental-American Steakhouse; but fantastic food is not the only draw - the festive atmosphere includes a way cool, crowded piano bar..." If great continental food in fine dining and casual dining with friendly atmosphere and world class live entertainment are your priorities, come to Vanessie. Fireplaces, exciting art, spaciousness, and lots of live music make Vanessie a local favorite.
